NEW DELHI: As many as 112 stocks including Amtek Auto, Blue Dart Express, Chennai Petroleum Corporation, HCC, HPCL, Idea Cellular and IDFC Bank hit their 52-week lows level on NSE on Friday.
Indian equity benchmarks continued maintaining the weak trend on Friday owing to sustained selling in pharma, metal, FMCG and auto counters, amid weak global cues as the US-China trade meet kept investors nervous.

In the Sensex index, 10 stocks closed the day in the green, while 20 in the red and one unchanged. Sensex lost 188 points, or 0.53 per cent, to settle at 34,915.
