As Fed rate cut looms, HSBC favours China shares over Ind

Analysts at HSBC have moved to endorse Chinese stocks and cooled on Indian shares, in a "less defensive" positioning ahead of a potential interest rate cut from the U.S. Federal Reserve later this month. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell on Wednesday paved the way for the first U.S. rate cut in a decade, pledging to "act as appropriate" to defend an economic expansion threatened by trade disputes and a global slowdown. HSBC had downgraded Chinese stocks in May to reflect such risks. But that view reversed along with rising expectations of a Fed cut, which would support 'cyclical' markets - those that move in sync with the business cycles. (Reuters)

On 30 occasions, she chose to repeat the same point twice, and at times even thrice, for greater effect. The novelty wasn’t just in her style of presentation, but there were also many points in the Budget that were also unique.
