    Global minimum corporate tax rate: The 'googly' ICC has dodged for years and how it may help nations

    Nine top-tier cricketing nations competed over two years in the toughest form of international cricket for a chance to claim the first ever World Test Championship, 2021’s marquee event of the International Cricket Council. India started its campaign with seven consecutive victories and secured its spot in the final after handing England a thorough drubbing at Ahmedabad. The final against New Zealand is slated to be played at the Ageas Bowl, the home of the Hampshire County Cricket Club. It is quite intriguing that Hampshire’s connections with India are as old as the game of cricket itself. While the earliest definite reference to cricket dates back to 1597, Hampshire became one of the biggest benefactors of the East India Company from the early 1600s. Employment for its labour, demand for its timber, requests for its ships, markets to its investors and consumers for its farmers. India gave Hampshire what it takes to build a modern city. Historically and culturally speaking, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to consider Ageas Bowl, the Indian team’s home ground. After all, who fills the stands?

    Outperformance of broader market becoming excessive

    "The outperformance of the broader market, though desirable, is becoming a bit excessive. While Nifty is up 12.66 % YTD, Nifty Mid-cap & Nifty Small-cap indices are up by 28.97% & 35.77 % respectively YTD. The problem with the broader market is that the crash in prices would be disproportionate during a bear phase since the broader market lacks depth. The outperformance of the broader market is largely driven by retail investors particularly the new breed of retail investors who have entered the market post the lockdown. Retail investors chasing low-quality names in the broader market will come to grief. Broader market shakeouts are inevitable. The ideal strategy would be to invest in mid & small-caps through mutual fund SIPs," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

    Nifty now trades at rick valuations

    "After the recent run-up, Nifty now trades at rich valuations. Thus any negative surprise or misses in the June quarter earnings could act as a dampener. However, the overall structure of the market remains positive as the second COVID wave has now started to recede, with the number of active COVID cases down >50% since its peak in early May to sub-18 lakhs now. There is greater visibility on vaccine supply now v/s April’21 and May’21. The expeditious containment of active COVID-19 cases and accelerated pace of vaccinations would boost and provide confidence in economic growth recovery in FY22E. As states ease restrictions gradually in Jun’21, we expect the demand environment to get better. Technically too, Nifty can see move towards fresh life time high of 16000 zones," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
