Indian market benefitting from 'there is no alternative' factor: Mahesh Nandurkar of Jefferies
Jefferies India Strategist Mahesh Nandurkar is of the view that India is benefitting from the ‘there is no alternative’ factor currently.
"From a momentum perspective, things are in favour of Indian markets, but valuations are becoming more uncomfortable, especially in the context of the US. We have outperformed quite a lot... S&P is down almost about 15 percent year to date, and our markets are just about flat,” he tells CNBC-TV18. (Read more)
Remain constructive on Indian market from medium-term view: JM Financial's Vinay Jaising
Vinay Jaising, MD-Portfolio Management Services at JM Financial, points out that the Indian market has relatively outperformed its global peers. "If you see the last month itself, the market is flat... If I had to add that today's performance, the global markets are down five percent. If I look at it over the last year, the absolute market is still the same, which is up 1 percent, but you know, you have the Nasdaq, which is down 25 percent... The overall global MSCI market is down and the world index down about 15-18 percent," he tells CNBC-TV18.
He remains constructive on the Indian market from a medium-term perspective. "We think the earnings growth trajectory is very positive. But in the short term, due to a couple of reasons, including valuations and liquidity, we stay a little cautious," he says.
