Sensex riding on robust earnings, oil: FM

The finance minister says the latest rally is fuelled by corporate better earnings and falling global oil prices.

Finance Minister P Chidambaram attributed the strong rally in the stock market, whose key index on Friday closed at a record high of 12,736.42 points, to better corporate earnings and declining global oil prices.

It could also be a belated reaction to Infosys' results and expectations of higher earnings from other corporates, he told reporters in New Delhi.
