Market Watch | Buying into FMCG reflects the current market scenario: Dilip Bhat, Joint MD, Prabhudas Lilladher

The FMCG names have taken it on the chin because of the rising commodity prices and very muted demand, especially coming from the rural areas. So overall, the volume growth has always been very muted for the FMCG companies for the last couple of quarters. So I think this is a big relief that the commodity prices are coming down and at the same time, we're also hearing that the rural demand is also firming up and is reviving in a very nice way. So I think all this adds up very well for the FMCG companies but yes, they are all very expensive. I think more than anything else, the buying into FMCG reflects the current market scenario where there's a lot of hesitancy, a lot of apprehensions, and a lot of uncertainty. So these stocks provide some kind of resilience to your portfolio and the way they have fallen, also on a risk-weighted basis, possibly they are at the bottom. So I think, yes, it makes sense to buy FMCG not from any great money-making point of view but to give some kind of defense in this uncertain times of the market with better management and with better cash flows. So I think these companies possibly will remain in the radar of a lot of people who want to have a little slightly cautious and defensive approach.

Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Technical Analyst at Sharekhan said that HDFC AMC has seen a substantial correction. "The monthly chart shows that the stock is in the end of correction and if we go down to lower timeframes, a daily chart, then we can see that the base formation has already taken place. Stock has form a base triangle and has broken out on the upside. So substantial upmove looks on the cards and one should definitely hold on to the counter and can even do a cost averaging at current level and expecting upside towards Rs 2,300 from medium term perspective," he said.
