Capital goods stock excel
STOCK prices in the past few days continued to dance to the tunes of performance announcement. Corporate action such as buyback and restructuring also held sway over the markets. Among the major gainers during the past few days in the non-technology segm
ent were stocks from sectors such as capital goods, banks, cement and consumer goods.
Madura Coats: Unlikely to enthuse
THE proposed buyback programme of Madura Coats may not enthuse market sentiment for the stock. The company has proposed to buyback its shares (up to 25 per cent of the equity of Rs 72.18 crore) at a price not exceeding Rs 30 per share.
Satyam Computer: FII take entire cake
THE Satyam Computer stock may show flat trends in the wake of the FII stake touching the threshold of 38 per cent. Beyond this level, any acquisition to the prescribed limit of 40 per cent would need RBI approval.

THE indications that the global level restructuring of ownership claims would not lead to an open offer under the takeover code may lead to sluggish trends in the Kvaerner Cementation stock.
Ashok Leyland, Hero Honda major gainers
