    "We have clear indications that central bank is now giving priority to inflation as the as the number one enemy and we have seen most of central banks, including our RBI, coming out unequivocally to say that 'whatever is required to tame inflation, we shall do that'. The risk is - what I think the market is now factoring in - that probably the central banks can go too far, and the medicine might be worse than the cure," says Mihir Vora, Director and CIO at Max Life Insurance.

  • Won't be surprised to see RBI hike hike repo rate by 75 bps in June: Citi South Asia's Badrinivas NC

    Badrinivas NC, Head-Markets at Citi South Asia, says he won't be surprised to see the RBI hike the repo rate by 75 bps in June to take it to pre-pandemic levels. "We do expect a few more rate hikes down in the coming policies all the way till the end of the year. The expectation, as things stand now is probably to get to a 6.5 to seven percent kind of repo rate," he says. 

    "We have to look at the whole rate cycle, the upcoming rate cycle in two steps. One is really to get to the level of pre-pandemic and remove the ultra-accommodative stance and then the question is: Where is inflation? Where is growth? What is it that they need to do? So if you look at it in those steps, one could argue that maybe the RBI was at the risk of falling behind the curve given what they said in February and even in some of the press conferences in March... However, some of the data, and obviously the world that is moving fast with the Ukraine war, has accelerated many of the trends that we saw previously, and therefore, you saw that change in April. And now it's a very clear message from them that there is an urgency to get to a pre-pandemic level," he adds.

  • Continue to like ITC, entire FMCG pack: Goldilocks Premium Research's Gautam Shah

    Gautam Shah, Founder and Chief Strategist at Goldilocks Premium Research, is positive on not just ITC but the entire FMCG pack. He is of the view that ITC is under-owned "People are still lost as to how they should be reacting to what ITC has done. So my view all along has been that ITC should be testing a level of Rs 300. So there is easily 20 percent upside from current levels and 20 percent upside I don't see on the Nifty very easily and in many of the largecaps. So in that sense, I think ITC is one of the better stocks to buy and it gives you a lot of stability as well," he says. 

    "Many FMCG stocks are now gradually bottoming out and trying to sort of form a reversal. So it's a space which I'm eyeing very closely along with public sector enterprises, which I continue to believe is the theme for the next one year," Shah adds.

  • Positive on midcap IT, largecap banking, avoid commodities: Dipan Mehta

    Dipan Mehta of Elixir Equities is bullish on growth companies, especially from the midcap IT and largecap banking spaces. He is also positive on contarion plays such as commodity consumers like auto and auto ancillaries, which in his view are likely to benefit from correction in prices.

    "This is a perfect time for someone to start an investment portfolio and hope for outperformance over the next 3-5 years. In any case, if you want to deploy your cash immediately, there's, of course, the LIC IPO, which is attractively valued and a good starting point to start investing," he says.  

    He suggests avoiding commodities at this point of time. "The war on inflation will eventually cause a lot of damage to commodity companies. Growth is anyway slowing down in terms of volumes and prices also have cooled off. And what's happening in China. I think that's negative for commodity stocks. And they have run up a lot," he says.
