A maturing market amid the mayhem

HUL shares end as top Sensex gainer

December 29, 2010

Shares in Hindustan Unilever jumped 3.5 percent on Wednesday to close at 304.55 rupees on a newspaper report in the Mint that the company had put a property in Mumbai for sale.

The asset was expected to fetch 2.2-2.5 billion rupees to the largest maker of household products and consumer goods.

The stock also ended as the top gainer in the 30-share BSE Sensex and the second best performer in BSE FMCG index.

Shares in HUL have so far gained 15.03 percent in 2010. Would you invest in this counter at this stage?
