Jonathan Garner, chief strategist for Asia and emerging markets at Morgan Stanley noted that there is similar downside for MSCI China and MSCI EM (emerging markets). In an interview to ET Now last month, Garner pointed out that he is overweight on India, but rising crude oil prices are a major risk. He also said that Morgan Stanley has raised Australia to equal-weight from underweight.
With respect to India, he said recently that considering that the crude oil prices may actually come back as a headwind in 2019, Morgan Stanley would be would be very cautious about strategically re-engaging here. Speaking about valuation in India, he noted, “India typically trades at a premium to other markets in Asia because it has high return on equity. That premium is at a fairly normal level. It is about 30% valuation premium to Asia overall.”
According to the expert, if oil prices go up it will be a drag on performance for Asian markets. “The tightening of policy in China and the US is still ongoing and then we had trade protectionism as an additional risk factor,” he said in a recent interview to the channel.
