In an interview with CNBC-TV18, Tushar Pradhan, Chief Investment Officer at HSBC Global Asset Management (India), shared his perspective on the Indian equity market. Pradhan believes the recent correction in Nifty presents a good buying opportunity as far as select stocks are concerned. He also mentioned that he is bullish on the entertainment and hospitality sectors in India.
“There are stocks which have corrected significantly higher and that is where the opportunity lies in this market,” said Tushar Pradhan, Chief Investment Officer at HSBC Global Asset Management (India), in an interview with CNBC-TV18.
“We will clearly reallocate wherever there has been a significant fall beyond what we think the adequate value of that stock was at that time,” he said.
Pradhan believes, consumption is a very large part of the India story and he is very constructive on that.
According to him, the demand for entertainment, leisure will remain significantly strong in the country for a long time.
“Entertainment, hospitality – the very large consuming areas clearly are areas of growth for India as we go forward in the next few years. That is not going to change,” he mentioned.
