MUMBAI, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Indian shares on Monday
retreated from the 14-month highs hit in the previous session as
profit-booking hit recent out-performers such as Reliance
Industries, while investors continued to shift out of defensive
stocks such as ITC.
Cigarette maker ITC provisionally fell 2.2 percent,
while Hindustan Unilever fell 2.15 percent.
Reliance Industries fell 1.7 percent after gaining
11 percent so far in September as of Friday's close.
India's benchmark BSE index provisionally fell 0.41
percent, while the 50-share NSE index fell 0.38 percent.
