Market Movers: Bajaj Finance, ITI fly; YES Bank hit again; 49 stocks flash buy signals

Shares of Godfrey Phillips were among major losers on Wednesday, even though the company clarified that it was not aware of any stake sale plans by its promoters. The stock plunged 9 per cent. Bajaj Finance rallied 5 per cent after reporting record quarterly profits. CG Power jumped 5 per cent following quarterly earnings.

BSE flagship Sensex gained 231 points for the day to 41,198 while its NSE counterpart Nifty rose 73.70 points to 12,129.

“A recovery in the global market and likely dovish stance from FOMC offered relief to the domestic market. This time the importance of Budget is substantial, due to high expectations. The Budget will be a blockbuster one even if a decent part of wish list is fulfilled. The event risk is high this time,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.
