NEW DELHI: Stocks of Indian companies that have high exposure to the UK gained after Boris Johnson won the ‘Brexit Election’. Among the gainers were Tata Motors, Bharat Forge, Motherson Sumi from the auto pack and TCS and Infosys from the IT pack.

Banking stocks, especially PSU banks, were also in a jubilant mood as most of them ended with handsome gains. Metals also rallied led by Vedanta and Tata Steel.

The 30-share BSE Sensex gained 1.05 per cent or 428 points to 41,009, while its NSE counterpart Nifty added 114.90 points or 0.96 per cent to 12,086.

"Market continued its winning streak fuelled by trade deal optimism and positive cues from the UK. Global growth sentiment helped domestic indices to subside weak CPI and industrial data in the near term. Midcap and smallcap stocks also participated in the rally. We believe this potential change in risk appetite may help investors to look beyond the polarised market," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
