What should be the Equity Strategy till next Diwali?
Should the Government continue the reform process, interest rate sensitive and cyclical sectors will be the biggest beneficiaries. We have increased our weight in Financials, Autos and the Capital Goods sectors. We expect the RBI to cut interest rates in the next two–three months which will benefit these sectors. The Capital Goods/Industrials sector has been a laggard over the past two to three years on account of a slowing economy, lack of infrastructure spending and other issues related to mining, land acquisition and fuel availability. However, with the recent announcements by the Government and the intention to resolve these issues, this sector could be the biggest beneficiary. Reduction in interest rates in the system will be positive for all the sectors mentioned above.
What is the Sensex level that you are expecting till Diwali 2013?
We expect earnings to grow in a range of 13-14 per cent for FY 2014 and believe that the market has the ability to deliver a ~15 per cent CAGR over the next three to five years. Recent initiatives by the Government to revive the economy coupled with interest rate cuts will drive the next leg of growth for the Indian corporate sector.
Which are the sectors you think will be in the limelight and why?
Financials, Consumer Discretionary and Capital Goods could do well should the RBI cut interest rates in the next few months.
