  • Staying away from auto stocks for the time being: Ambareesh Baliga

    Independent market expert Ambareesh Baliga is avoiding auto stock for now. "I would be going a bit slow on autos at least for the next couple of months because clearly the sort of numbers which we have expected did not happen. The chip shortage is going to continue to trouble the auto space at least for a while longer. On my radar clearly is Maruti Suzuki which possibly I will look at buying closer to about Rs 7,003 or below, which is close to about Rs 800-900 lower than where it is now. The other pick would be Tata Motors. I would look at buying that closer to about Rs 425 or so. That is still sometime away," he said. 

  • India has been an outperformer among EMs, small correction always good: Vaibhav Sanghavi

    Vaibhav Sanghavi, Co-CEO of Avendus Capital Alt Strategies, believes that some correction or consolidation is always good for a market like India, which has been an outperformer among emerging markets and other global markets. It improves the health of the market, he said. 

    "So these consolidation phases are pretty much welcome. Also, it kind of sets in a check that valuations are not frothy. At this point, the valuations are bit rich. From our fund perspective, we have kind of raised some amount of cash, but largely, our hedges have kind of gone up, not that we are extremely bearish on a longer period of time, it's just that we want to play certain opportunities and we have pulled up our hedges in anticipation of some turbulence if it may come by... We haven’t dramatically raised the cash level because there are opportunities to be invested in and that is where we want to be as well," he said. 

  • Disruption, growth opportunities in new-age companies look exciting: Vaibhav Sanghavi

    Vaibhav Sanghavi, Co-CEO of Avendus Capital Alt Strategies, said the market is trying to figure out how to track new-age businesses now but the disruption and growth opportunities in them look exciting. "We have seen some good amount of new-age economy stocks getting listed. What we believe is basically buying the business prospects, pretty good in terms of the growth opportunities, the market is trying to figure out the valuations which we would probably be able to give to all these business, because many of these businesses may not see net profits at least in the shorter term... So those guys who would continue to be the leaders, and have another ecosystem are someone who will make some good sized money in a longer period of time, which we have seen in the global economies as well. Maybe this is something which we will see here going forward as well. So interest would definitely be there," he said.
