Analysis of Top Gainer and Loser

Tech Mahindra is the Top Gainer in today's market as there was huge buying seen in this stock which is in 52-week low level. It was slipped as much as 43 months low level in previous week post disappointing Q4 financial results.

Bank of Baroda is the top loser in today's market as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley met with heads of public sector banks on issues relating to rising non-performing assets (NPAs) in the sector. It was expected that the meet will look at the steps these banks are taking to expedite the recovery of bad loans. The meeting is significance as it will be the first meeting after last month's promulgation of the ordinance amending the Banking Regulation Act, 1949. The Ordinance empowered the Reserve Bank to issue directions to any banking company or banking companies to initiate insolvency resolution process in respect of a default under the provisions of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC), 2016.
