Why the Sensex has posted its best weekly gain since March

Improving earnings have raised optimism for a broader-based economic recovery, especially at a time when investors are betting monsoon rains will be stronger than average this year.

Mirroring the optimism, foreign investors have bought Indian shares worth over $120 million this month, taking this year's inflows to $1.92 billion.

"Earnings have improved overall and this quarter's results have surprised markets positively," said Vaibhav Agrawal, vice-president & head of research at Angel Broking.

"India's macros and consumer-driven sectors are doing quite well and there is a clear-cut optimism that growth will pick up."
