Stocks To Watch: TCS, L&T India, Dr. Reddy’s Lab

Sensex falls over 1% on key stock sell-off. Bajaj Finance drops 5.03%. Gainers include TCS, Dr Reddy's, and L&T.

On Tuesday, benchmark equity indices experienced a notable decline, reversing the sharp gains recorded the previous day. The BSE Sensex fell by over 1%, driven by significant selling in key stocks such as Reliance Industries, ITC, and Bajaj Finance.

The 30-share BSE Sensex witnessed a substantial drop, closing at 71,139.90 after falling by 801.67 points or 1.11%. During the trading session, the index plunged 865.85 points or 1.20% to touch 71,075.72. Simultaneously, the Nifty also faced a downturn, declining by 215.50 points or 0.99% to settle at 21,522.10.

Among the Sensex-listed firms, Bajaj Finance experienced a significant setback, recording a decline of 5.03%. The drop followed disappointing December quarter earnings, failing to inspire investor confidence. Other major laggards included Titan, UltraTech Cement, Bajaj Finserv, Reliance Industries, ITC, and NTPC.

However, some companies managed to buck the trend, with Tata Motors, State Bank of India, Hindustan Unilever, Power Grid, Tech Mahindra, and Tata Consultancy Services emerging as gainers during the trading session.
