Where will domestic equities go in Samvat 2078

“Over the past one year we have seen the Nifty deliver a 50% return, and the small /mid-cap indices broadly delivered around 80% returns. It will be unfair to assume that the benchmark indices will deliver similar returns in the short term. Benchmark index returns in the short term may not be the right way to assess the investment opportunity. A carefully constructed portfolio which harnesses the tailwinds, which the Indian Economy is expected to enjoy in the coming years, should deliver 12-15% compounded returns over the medium term. Right from IT, domestic manufacturing, real estate, and real estate full chain, to financial services, capital market intermediaries, and capital goods — all the sectors are expected to do well over the medium term. Hence, over the medium term investors can make significant wealth by investing in domestic equities,” said Krishna Kumar Karwa, Managing Director – Emkay Global Financial Services.

Global headwinds to be offset by Indian macros

“After a great year for equity markets, investors are looking forward to markets continue rising though not at the same pace. Global headwinds in the form of rising inflation and withdrawal of monetary stimulus may impact the momentum, but strength in Indian macros and improving micros may help offset these. Investors need to conduct portfolio review, asset allocation review, and raise the quality of stocks held in their portfolio,” said Dhiraj Relli, MD & CEO, HDFC Securities.

Nifty seen at 19500 by March, likely to hit 21000 by next Diwali

Money making may not be as easy as it was in the last 18 months where the entire market rallied into one of the best bulls ever witnessed. We are advising clients to be selective and play smart with sectoral allocation to reap the benefits of the move from here. Technically, we remain positive on the Nifty for a target of 19,500 by March next year and 21,000 by next Diwali. Dips and corrections if any should be good buying opportunities and if played well can help us make the most of what Samvat 2078 has to offer us.

Samvat 2078: Nifty in major uptrend, may hit 20000 above 18600; Bank Nifty to scale 47000 by Diwali 2022

SAMVAT 2078 will be a year of balance sheet leverage, led by significant improvement in corporate profitability. Cumulative and rolling net profit of NSE 500 universe or the last four quarters has touched an all-time high with loss-making sectors turning positive and significantly contributing to the net profitability. Moreover, ROE or the broader market is improving after a muted performance for several years. Overall, the Indian market has entered into an earning’s up-cycle with an expectation of more than 20% growth in Nifty’s earnings in the next two years. With faster economic recovery on the cards, more cyclical sectors are likely to join the rally with the expectation of higher government spending moving forward. The Small and Mid Caps are picking up steam and balance sheet leveraging is likely to play out in 2022 with an improved outlook on return ratios and profitability.

Samvat 2078 likely to be very volatile

“After the spectacular returns in Samvat 2077, investors should expect modest returns only, say in low teens, in Samvat 2078. This Samvat is likely to be very volatile, unlike last Samvat. Rising inflation would be the biggest known threat to the market. Rate hikes by the Fed can happen by the end of 2022  or, perhaps, earlier than that if persistent inflation and the bond market forces the Fed’s hands. Rate hikes by the Fed will lead to some capital flight from emerging markets like India and this is likely to trigger some sharp correction in the market. But the correction may turn out to be low and short-lived if the economy rebounds smartly. Metals, Realty, IT, Banking, Financials like mortgage and Fintech, Telecom and Capital goods are likely to perform well. In Samvat 2077, while Nifty delivered 40% return, the Mid and Small-cap Indices delivered 70 % and 80 % returns respectively. This outperformance may continue. Investors should play this space through the mutual fund route, preferably  through SIPs.”
