As the September quarter earnings near an end amid the ongoing economic slowdown, brokerage firm Centrum Broking, in a recent report said that the worst appears to be over but it is going to be a slow ride towards the path of normalization. It expects growth to rebound to normal levels around Q1FY21-Q2FY21. Positing that gradual recovery is on way owing to continuous government intervention, the brokerage has constructed a portfolio for the coming quarters. The brokerage suggests reducing cash in the portfolio gradually and increasing weights in cyclicals like auto and banks. It is overweight on consumption stocks and underweight on IT and metals. These are Centrum Broking's top picks post Q2 results:

NCC: The brokerage likes NCC given its well-diversified order backlog, healthy bid pipeline, and strong execution capabilities. Led by new order wins and part revival of execution, it expects strong earnings recovery in FY21. It added that improvement
