 Improved prospects of sustained earnings recovery and recent weakness in rupee also augur well for IT stocks, he said, adding that favourable cues from global markets also aided sentiments.

 Further, RIL AGM was in focus today in second half of the session, and investors seemed to be in a profit booking mode, he noted.
