11:45 am Interview:
Real estate company Brigade Enterprises reported a significant increase in its net profit at Rs 41 crore, the company's Q2 revenue was down 11 percent at Rs 249 crore versus Rs 280 crore. Speaking to CNBC-TV18, chief financial officer Suresh Kris, says the fall in numbers came because the company didn't recognise any revenues in Q2. However, Kris adds the company's H1FY16 has been better than H1FY15.

11:30 am  Market outlook: Valuations appear to be protected on the downside, though it may crack a bit on global flows and Bihar outcome, says Krishna Kumar Karwa of Emkay Global Financial Services. He says from now to year-end, the market will be focussing on a few important events such as the US Federal Reserve rate hike and the government's reforms push. According to him, a bottom-up investing approach is important. He also sees a few more analyst downgrades going ahead. As far as the earnings growth estimate for FY16 is concerned, he says Emkay has been rather conservative and hasn't altered its expectations much.

Crude oil rose 0.46 percent to Rs 3,047 per barrel in futures market  as speculators created fresh bets, taking positive cues from Asian markets.


Analysts said speculators built fresh positions on the back of a firm Asian trend, buoyed by bargain hunting ahead of the release of US data that will gauge crude demand in the world's biggest economy. This mainly led to rise in crude oil prices in futures trade.
