“Today we saw the market bounce back after a dull spell dominated largely by retail investors,” Rakshitha Perera, research manager at Bartleet Mallory Stockbrokers said.

“With the fiscal year ended it will be interesting to see how some of the companies have fared for the full year as the future growth numbers have not been factored in. Hence some of the shares are trading at a fair bit of discount relative to peers.”
