Nifty above 8250, Sensex flat; Bharat slips 2%, ITC drags

9:55 am Buzzing: Shares of KPIT Technologies tanked 20 percent intraday, hitting lower circuit at Rs 124.05 per share on poor March quarter results. Its disappointing Q4FY1 earnings were dragged by revenue de-growth and a sharp drop in margins. Revenue de-growth was led by the US, manufacturing, energy & utilities, IES and SAP SBU, says

Also, what led to the drag is management’s mis-matched outlook. In March, the management had indicated that dollar revenue in January-March quarter to be flat quarter-on-quarter due to cross currency but it reported a 3.5 percent decline in the period. KPIT Technologies' Q4FY15 result was bleak, with revenues declining 3.2 percent Q-o-Q to USD 122 million

Antique has downgraded the stock to sell with a target price of Rs 113 per share.

9:30 am FII view: Geoffrey Dennis, Head-Global Emerging Market Strategy at UBS expects the US Fed to start raising rates in September. He remains invested in emerging markets and feels the India story stays intact in long-term. However, he sees some profit-taking. According to Dennis, India is unlikely to give 35 percent returns as other countries like Korea and China are attracting some money out of the country. He, however, advises Indian investors to put money into market now and expects a 10-15 percent upside in the market by 2015-end.

Sun Pharma, Maruti, Wipro, Bajaj Auto and ICICI Bank are top gainers in the Sensex. Among the losers are Bharti Airtel, HUL, Vedanta, Cipla and Tata Motors.

Bharti Airtel's earnings disappointed after profits and revenues missed estimates. The Indian operations of the company remain steady while Africa continues to drag.

The Indian rupee opened marginally lower at 63.22 per dollar against 63.15 Tuesday. The dollar dropped to an eight-week low after a weak US consumer confidence report, with investors cautious about a Federal Reserve meeting.

Himanshu Arora of Religare said, "The USD-INR pair is expected to trade lower today on expectations that Greece will reach a bailout agreement soon. Improved risk appetite along with surging equities may dampen demand of dollar. Further, World Bank's statement that India is less vulnerable now than it was in 2013, may also support the rupee in the short term.”

Among global markets, US markets close mixed as investors digested the raft of earnings and awaited the Federal Reserve's statement due later today.

In Europe, equities closed lower as investors took a breather from a stellar rally in the previous session and looked ahead to meeting by the US Federal reserve policymakers.

Among commodities, Brent crude prices hovered near USD 64 per barrel on expectations that US crude stockpiles could be at record highs for the 16th consecutive week. Gold prices rise to USD 1210 an ounce on soft dollar. For more information please visit this site
