Motherson, Sun Pharma, Dilip Buildcon, HUL, Lumax Auto Tech stocks in focus on Monday.

Indian benchmark indices are likely to open on a negative note, hinted SGX Nifty. On the Singapore Exchange, Nifty futures were in the red at 17,963 level. In the previous session, Sensex closed marginally above 61,000, down 0.52% and the Nifty gave up 17,950. “Lack of major triggers in the domestic market is attracting global cues to dictate the market trend. The US market is facing an unfavorable combination of higher-than-expected inflation and a stronger job market. This suggests that interest rates have not yet peaked and will remain elevated for a long period,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.
