Stocks in news today: Sensex and Nifty are likely to open on a positive note on Monday tracking a mild recovery in the Asian markets. The SGX Nifty was trading higher by 0.49% on the Singapore Exchange, indicating a positive start for the NSE Nifty 50 in India. Asian shares have bounced from last week’s steep declines on Monday, though sentiment remained fragile amid heightened worries about corporate earnings and a slowdown in global economic growth, said a Reuters report. Oil prices were stable.
