Post Session-Sensex extends record high spree
(02-Sep-14 04:34 Hrs IST)
Dalal Street seems to be on a roll as the Sensex surged past the 27K barrier, closing at a record high for a third straight session, advancing by over 150 points led by handsome gains in consumer durables and healthcare stocks. Optimism that the Modi government will undertake key reforms on the tax and financial front to attract overseas investors boosted sentiment while markets continued to ride high on upbeat Q1 GDP numbers. The stock of Cipla surged by over 5 per cent after it launched an anti-asthma inhaler in Germany and Sweden.
