The flower of optimism wilted on Dalal Street on Friday as Wipro hit its lowest level in more than two years.
The benchmark S&P BSE Sensex shed 54 points to end the day at 27,782. The 50-share gauge Nifty50 closed at 8,572, lower by 19 points.
Shares of Wipro tumbled to their two-year low during the session. The stock plunged another 3 percent after a 3 percent decline seen on Thursday. The company had posted weaker-than-expected numbers for June quarter and investors see it wilting under the pressure that the IT giants are facing this year.
