    • Positive on Asian Paints: Mehraboon J Irani

      Market expert Mehraboon J Irani likes Asian Paints but is no rush to recommend the stock afresh. "We need to understand that Asian Paints is possibly a core holding in the portfolios of many investors, the results are excellent, no doubt about it, in this challenging times, especially the volume growth which has exceeded expectations that has been the operative margin also is quite comfortable, the company will take price hikes ahead. The margins which are there for the March quarter, which has been announced right now, will they sustain going ahead is a difficult question right now," he says. 

      "This is a stock in which I won't possibly put in incremental money at this level considering the fact that the comfort level as far as the overall market is concerned is not very high; there are challenges ahead... But Asian Paints ultimately has a great structural story of market share gains and consolidation, and ultimately, it has the aspiration of becoming a complete home market player. This is a stock investors, if they don't mind a 5-7 percent downside, can continue to hold, but putting in more money in this present environment I will certainly not recommend," he adds.

    • India best equity story for next 10 years: Jefferies' Christopher Wood

      Christopher Wood, Global Head Of Equity Strategy, Jefferies, said he still believes India is the best equity story on a 10 year view, not just in Asia, but globally. It is a very strong domestic demand story. 

      "On the manufacturing side, India has never really been an export power. But with what's been going on in China again, clearly, China still a fantastic place to export, very efficient, very good infrastructure, big multinationals don’t want to move out of there but on the other hand, they definitely do want to have a China plus one strategy and events we're seeing right now in China, these extreme lockdowns are going to make them think more about that than it was the case before. And India has one huge advantage over the other Asian nations who are getting investment outside Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, because India has this huge domestic market. So one reason all these multinationals in China was obviously efficiency of China. But the other big reason was it gave them access to the domestic market. So if India can come up as a coherent program to attract multinational manufacturing, I believe the access to the domestic market gives it a huge opportunity over the next 10 to 15 years. And so, you now have such a program in India, " he explained.
