Don't see much evidence of capex picking up: Anand Tandon

Market expert Anand Tandon does not see much evidence that capex in the country will pick up going forward. "If you have capacity utilisation in most industries still in the early 70s-late 60s kind of range or even lower, why would you really want to expand capacity? I would really want to see whether the capacity expansion story has will come through and therefore with that, you will get the engineering companies also doing very well... For the moment, I think market has probably run up in the expectation that it will happen. I would think that you may want to take a pause and wait for the reality to catch up," he said.

Manappuram Finance gold loan business should do reasonably well: Anand Tandon

Market expert Anand Tandon believes Manappuram Finance's gold loan business to perform reasonably well, given there is no major drop in terms of gold prices, and, therefore, no issue of in terms of non-performing assets (NPAs). "By and large when the prices remain reasonably firm, you will get fairly strong growth in terms of volume. So, on a net-net basis, that part of the business should be okay...It is always microfinance which is a little trickier. That has been a space which has been hit quite badly during the second wave of COVID... So if you want to be in that space, I would still argue that you're probably better with the banks which moved in that space, because at least the liability sides will be assured and will come in at a lower price than if you were just borrowing the wholesale market," he said. 

"Net-net, there are a better players for both gold loan by itself as well as the microfinance business. Of course, what is going for it is that it is not particularly expensive," he said.

No more addition recommended in auto space now: Sushil Kedia

Sushil Kedia of Kedianomics has been long on autos for long. "A large move has happened on them; there is no time yet to sell them.

We are doing that on the banks now. So there is no sell on autos yet, but I am not going to add more or recommend here again," he said.
