HUL Bucks The General Trend To Surge 6% As Markets Record Worst Day In 4 Years

Markets were in turmoil on Tuesday as Nifty fell 5.93% to 21,884.50, recording its biggest fall in 4 years as BJP struggled to get a clear mandate despite the NDA coalition going past the halfway mark.

Leading the pack of gainers in the Nifty 50 is Hindustan Unilever, India’s largest FMCG firm, with a 5.96% surge. This follows a decent performance over the past few weeks, with a 6% rise in the last 30 days.

Other significant losers include ONGC with a 16.83% drop, NTPC with a 15.45% fall, and SBIN with a 14.40% decline.

Talking about the results, brokerage firm Emkay Global said, “India's general elections threw up a negative surprise, with the ruling NDA set to return albeit with a reduced majority, and the BJP well short of a majority.”

The brokerage said that the index at 21,000 currently is still expensive but if it falls another 10% to dip below 20,000 then it becomes attractive.
