By buying dips, Shah meant that investors should buy stocks when their prices are very low.
When stock markets fall considerably, the prices of most stocks drop and, hence, are available at far lower prices than earlier. Even blue-chip stocks are available at lower prices, and thus it gives a choice to investors to choose from a wider range of stocks.
Buying the dip is best suited for long-term investors as they can enter certain stocks at lower prices and book profits as soon as the market jumps back.
Shah further said that  India would outperform, but margins may taper down.
"On a near-term basis, India is expensive. But on a five-year basis, the market is cheap," he said.
