  1. Adani Ports: After a long streak of gains, this port and transport service company of Adani Group fell today. The stock lost 1.76% and closed at 1075, down from yesterday’s close at 1094.30.
  2. Wipro: This IT stock witnessed some profit booking today after last week’s rally. The stock lost 1.58% and closed at 438.20, down from its previous day’s closing of 445.25. While profit booking is one cause behind the fall in the price of the stock, another reason could be a transfer of 100% shareholding of Designit A/S from wipro Holdings (UK) to Wipro IT Services UK.
  3. Adani Enterprise: As profit booking has started, this stock also dipped 1.36%, falling from 2980.60 to 2940. The company also has a scheduled HNI investors meeting on 22 December 2023.
  4. TCS: This IT sector stock lost 1.33% and closed at 3808 down from its yesterday’s closing at 3859.20, which is a result of profit booking in this sector. On the other hand, the company has been chosen by SIX as its partner to transform its Swiss Post Trade Market Infrastructure.
  5. UPL: This agrochemical and fertilizers stock lost 1.33% during today’s session and came within the list of top nifty losers. The stock closed at 598.50 down from its yesterday’s closing price of 606.55, due to an overall sluggish market, especially in the core sectors.

Wrapping up

Today, while most sectors were in the red or sluggish, a few sectors, such as the FMCG sector, pharma, oil and gas, and consumer durables, pulled the market up. However, the selling pressure was high, and thus the market ended flat.
