The market may edge higher in early trade on firm Asian stocks. Trading of S&P CNX Nifty futures on the Singapore stock exchange indicates a gain of 24.50 points at the opening bell. Asian stocks gained on Friday, 15 June 2012, on reports that the major central banks around the world are considering bolstering liquidity support in the event that the Greek election goes badly this weekend. HDFC said its management completely disagrees with the contents of the Macquarie report dated 14th June 2012 as the concerned analyst has not attempted to meet anyone from HDFC before making the aforesaid report and verify the facts and statements made therein. Moreover it is surprising that Macquarie in its report as recently as May 7, 2012 had put a price target of Rs.775 on HDFC stock with an outperform rating based on the same facts and figures, HDFC said in a statement. "We are therefore unable to understand as to what prompted the analyst to change his recommendation and outlook within a months time", HDFC said.
Indian markets may open on a flat to positive note tracking positive Asian cues and on account of SGX Nifty trading 23.50 points higher. Events for the day: Ex-date for dividend of Uco Bank and Corporation Bank. Ex-date for final dividend of Prism cement and VST Industries.
