India not having bear market
Meanwhile, even as the stock markets remain volatile on the back of factors such as the political environment and global crude prices, ace investor Porinju Veliyath says that India is not having a bear market, and will not have one in the near future. “There are underpriced and overpriced stocks everyday in the market. Markets have come up every time there has been a sentiment driven fall. We are not in a bear market,” ace investor Porinju Veliyath said in an interview with ET Now.

Today, after three decades its at 22,500. This is called a bear market. This might have happened in the 1930’s in the United States, you would have heard in history,” he said. But will India ever have such a scenario? “Just 3% of the world’s wealth is in India. We are too small a base and we talk about bear market?
