Most mid-cap firms are likely to post double digit growth in sales and profits for the Jan-March quarter, led by automobile, pharmaceuticals and banks, a Reuters poll showed.
About two-thirds of the 82 companies, whose sales and profit estimates were polled by Reuters, may report two-digit profit growth, while three-quarters may report sales growth of 10 percent or more, according to the poll of 16 brokerages.
