Summary

Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty50 failed to stay in the green in a choppy session on Thursday, as investors globally overlooked reassuring comments from the Fed amid nervousness on the Russia-Ukraine war front. Financial and auto stocks pulled the headline indices lower, though gains in IT and oil & gas shares limited the downside. Broader markets lost steam in the second half of the day, finishing on a mixed note. The Nifty Midcap 100 and the Nifty Smallcap 100 indices fell and rose 0.4 percent each respectively. During the session, the smallcap gauge rose as much as two percent.

Investors need to have a longer-term horizon when looking at new age companies: Harish Krishnan

Harish Krishnan, Executive VP and Senior Equit Fund Manager at Kotak AMC, is of the view that investors need to have a longer-term view when looking at new age companies. Kotak AMC has some exposure in new age businesses, he says. "These are all long dated option instruments; some of them will deliver tremendous value, and some of them, or rather most of them, will lose out on the way especially as the terminal value for a lot of these companies is anywhere between 85, 90 and 95 percent of the current market cap," says Krishnan.

"We prefer to have a basket kind of approach on say 2-3-4 of them, and have a smallish position and to see how they evolve. Some of these are doing quite well, in terms of their overall growth... We will look at creating portfolios for 3-5 years. We do think that some of these new age businesses will be a meaningful portion of the market cap 3-5 years down the line," he adds.

His advice: Pick up the stock in small lots. 

We don’t know how much more it can fall. Buy more at lower levels if you are looking at the long term,” he says.

Crude oil impact on India concerning when inflation at higher end of comfort zone: Bhavin Shah

Bhavin Shah, Founder and Portfolio Manager at Sameeksha Capital, believes the impact of higher crude oil rates on India is concerning especially when inflation is running at the top end of the comfort zone. "The outlook for the Indian equities is certainly more uncertain, especially putting aside the geopolitical uncertainty in whether or not this develops into something much larger... We have a high fiscal deficit by historical standards or at least what would be required to bring inflation in check. Both for the RBI and the government, it's a tight rope to walk. And that's what is the issue for the market because if this thing goes out of control, and RBI is forced to hike up rates, it can damage the markets and I think that's what is somewhat reflected in the recent share price movements that we have seen," he says. 

However, he doesn't have a totally negative stance. 'I still look for opportunities where there is a strong growth horizon that we can see," he says.
