Sensex, Nifty climb over 1%; ICICI Bank leads, Cipla tanks 7%

Cipla plunged 7 percent after disappointing set of earnings. Net profit in Q4 dropped 68.8 percent to Rs 80.9 crore while revenue increased only 5.6 percent to Rs 3,266.5 crore compared to year-ago period.

10:40 am Oil at $50/bbl: Oil prices edged towards USD 50 a barrel in Asia today after a larger-than-expected dip in US stockpiles resulting from wildfires that have disrupted oil production in Canada.

The American Petroleum Institute yesterday reported that crude inventories dropped by 5.14 million barrels last week, Bloomberg News reported. Data from the Energy Information Administration due later today are likely to confirm the fall in supplies.

There have been high expectations of a decline in stockpiles because of wildfires in western provinces of Canada, the biggest supplier of crude to the US market.

Brent crude futures rose 1 percent to USD 49.11 a barrel and US futures climbed 1.2 percent to USD 49.2 a barrel. INTRADAY FREE TIPS

10:20 am Earnings estimates: State-run natural gas processing and distribution company GAIL is expected to show earnings revival in Q4 but that may somewhat offset by lower domestic gas availability (due to lower production from ONGC).

The company is likely to benefit from lower petchem losses and healthy transmission volumes post successful re-negotiation of contract with RasGas, a Qatar-based liquefied natural gas producing company.

Key thing to watch out for would be GAIL's commentary on transmission tariff revision order by PNGRB (Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board); petchem volume ramp-up/price recovery, any domestic gas price cut and any likely increases in tariffs.

According to average of estimates of analysts polled by CNBC-TV18, profit in Q4 is likely to fall 6.8 percent to Rs 619 crore and revenue may decline 6 percent to Rs 12,613 crore compared to preceding quarter.
