Zomato | The share tumbled over over 28 percent in the week gone by. Recent reports suggested the Federal Reserve rolling back liquidity amid higher inflation and indicating multiple interest rate hikes this year have weakened the case for investment in richly priced technology stocks with no near-term visibility on profitability. Execution is the only thing under our control, said Deepinder Goyal, founder and chief executive of online delivery firm Zomato on a day when the company's stock has tumbled even as rival Swiggy raised a massive funding round. The selling in shares of Zomato along with other internet companies has been triggered by the surge in global and domestic bond yields that has made their valuations richer than what their fundamentals dictate.
