Share prices of many companies, including blue chips like Reliance Industries, SBI, HDFC Bank, Hero Honda too displayed weird movements with huge gains and losses of up to 20 per cent at BSE due to technical glitch.

Meanwhile, experts attributed rise in TCS's stock to the more than expected market estimate earnings by the IT major. Brokerage firm Prabhudas Lilladher said in a note, "TCS reported Q1, FY'12, results ahead of our estimates. The comprehensive out performance on all parameters demonstrates strength of demand. However, we continue to believe that margin levers for the company are stretched. We revise our estimates upward and reiterate our 'BUY' rating."
