Share Market Update | Motilal Oswal's Sandeep J Shah's view on market
“For now the market is sideways, but given the fact that global macros look far more conducive with the dollar index peaking out, US interest rates hopefully peaking out in this quarter as well... world trade as a percentage of GDP is close to an all-time high. Domestically there is a bit of a minor slowdown in growth in the second half but with margins pressures abating from next quarter and if budget does not have any major negative surprises, then we may slowly grind higher. However there could be some volatility in the near term. So I think investors should buy into any weakness post budget. While I would recommend staggering flows over the next 3-6 months, but incase you see a significant correction post budget or because of any other reason, investors should actually go in 50 percent lump sum and spread the balance. So certainly not the time to get overweight on equities but the long term outlook for India remains extremely robust,” says Sandeep J Shah, Managing Partner Motilal Oswal Pvt Wealth Mgmt.
Share Market Update | Monarch's Abhisar Jain's view on market
"We are quite constructive on the Indian market, mainly because of two key reasons. One is that going into this cycle, as my peers have also been saying, the balance sheets are in the best shape possible for both the corporate India as well as for the banking sector. And that would help us going ahead as we move into the new credit cycle, as we move into the investment phase with all the PLI and the focus of the government on increasing the manufacturing. Second thing is that the market have spent quite a bit of time in this range. So if you were to see in 15 months back, we were at this range, what we are today, and we have spent this time, we have had the odd big dip in between, and we are still here. So that has made the valuation a little bit more reasonable. The premium is still there for the markets versus its 10-15 year average, but it is much more reasonable. So we are constructive. And for this year, hopefully it should be an okay market, which tracks its earnings," says Abhisar Jain, Head & Fund Manager, Monarch.
