Todays market opened positive on global cues but high volatility was seen in the afternoon session as there were mix triggers in the market. There is a sectorial tussle seen in the market as banking stocks have seen a delivery based buying and there was huge selling seen in almost all pharma stocks. Sensex lost 19.33 points to 31056.40; Nifty gained 10 points to 9588.05.

Top Gainers
Tata Motors DVR by 3.20% to 281.85, Kotak Mahindra Bank by 2.27% to 984.45, ACC by 1.92% to 1643, UltraTech Cement by 1.65% to 4110.70 And Tata Motors by 1.57% to 455.35.

Analysis of Top Gainer and Loser
Tata Motors DVR is the top gainer in today's market as the Bombay stock exchange is going to add private sector lender Kotak Mahindra Bank and Tata Motors Differential Voting Rights (DVR) as an additional stock in the benchmark Sensex from Monday, June 19. The Exchange will exclude GAIL from the index.

Lupin is the top loser as panic selling was seen in the market as the market is worried about price environment in the US market and continuing decline in the companys two key products, Glumetza and Fortamet. It may lead to pressure on companys EBITDA margins. But it seems more like profit booking for short term investors.
