Remain underweight on midcap IT: Trideep Bhattacharya
Trideep Bhattacharya, CIO-Equities at Edelweiss AMC, tells CNBC-TV18 that he has been underweight midcap IT since September last year, and underweight the whole IT pack. "It is a question of the extent to which earnings downgrades happen and I would surmise that we haven't seen the bottom of earnings downgrades yet. A couple of a large growth houses or people who forecast IT spendings are talking about weakness coming through in the next calendar year, which will have a bearing on earnings growth for next year," he says.
"Earnings downgrades are still to come in the next maybe a couple of quarters," he adds.
