Infosys, 4 other stocks that led Nifty’s charge to 16,000

The journey from 15,000 to 16,000 for the Nifty has been a long and arduous ride for investors compared to past 1,000-point rallies. The index took 119 sessions to move from 15,000 to 16,000 as a resurgence of coronavirus and slowdown in foreign fund fl ows dampened sentiment. In comparison, the previous two 1,000-point rallies took 25 and 26 sessions, respectively. IT bellwether Infosys led the current 1,000-point rally. Mutual funds invested nearly Rs 27,000 crore during Nifty’s upmove with foreign players’ share at Rs 17,000 crore.
