Auto and metal sectors stand out from a valuation perspective, says V Srivatsa of UTI MF##Auto and metal sectors stand out from a valuation perspective, says V Srivatsa of UTI MF


V Srivatsa, EVP & fund manager at UTI Mutual Fund, shared his views on the fundamentals of the market and shared outlook on specific stocks and sectors. Speaking about the market sentiment, Srivatsa said, “At the current level, whatever negative news that we have seen or sentiments we have seen in the last six months, either in terms of the macro or even in terms of the corporate earnings, my guess is a lot of it is already priced into the stocks. If you look at the last one year, both the Nifty and the midcap indexes have given negative returns. I think a large part of the pain is behind us. So, we may still have 2-3 months or maybe maximum one or two quarter of pain or negative news flow on the macro and the micro side, but a large part of the pain is already reflected in the stock prices.” READ MORE

Analysis: India’s airlines face a crushing liquidity crunch##Analysis: India’s airlines face a crushing liquidity crunch


As the country deals with a drastic slowdown in consumption, 5 percent GDP growth for the quarter, a falling rupee and minimal capex spending by corporates, India’s airline industry is also facing liquidity challenges. Lending to airlines is severely constrained and the failure of Jet Airways continues to haunt lenders. For banks with an exposure of more than Rs 8,500 crore to Jet Airways, the likelihood of a suitor diminishes each day. Even the most optimistic assessments indicate that they will only be able to recover a miniscule portion of amounts lent. The fact that this is a large airline failure which comes just seven years after Kingfisher airlines where the default is to the tune of Rs 9041 crore only exacerbates the situation. The consequence: banks are negative on the airline sector. Liquidity issues abound. READ MORE
