Fund of the Month

January 11, 2016

Start accumulating quality portfolio

With markets having corrected more than 16% from the


highs, the risk-reward ratio for investment is favourable. It
is difficult to build a portfolio at precise market bottoms.
However, with a favourable reward to risk ratio, we
believe this is an opportune time for portfolio construction
from a long term perspective

Indian equity markets have witnessed selling pressure over the last few
months on the back of weak global markets. Indian markets have
corrected more than 16% from the all time high levels achieved in March
2015. The flight of capital from emerging markets on the back of concern
of further rate hikes from the US Federal Reserve on one hand and global
slowdown concern leading by slowdown in China have led to weakening
of market sentiments. We believe that the breather in 2015 forms part of
the larger bull market which began since mid 2013 and provides an
attractive incremental buying opportunity for long term investors.
The broader markets have consistently outperformed the benchmarks on
relative as well as absolute terms since the outcome of General Election in
May 2014. During structural downtrends, the broader markets are
generally hammered down and tend to underperform the benchmarks
owing to low risk appetite. However, strength in broader markets during
last 10 month corrective phase suggests strong appetite among
participants to own stocks even as benchmarks are undergoing a
corrective phase
Although the market sentiment may remain weak, stock specific
investment opportunities persist across the market segment irrespective of
the market capitalization. As earnings visibility exists in selected broader
market stocks, investors should focus on funds with quality stocks which
have higher growth potential. So, one has to be selective while investing,
thereby focusing on visibility of revenues, balance sheet strength, cash
flow profile and management quality

Indian economy poised for upturn


Research Analyst

Amid the earnings hiccups the macro indicators show that the economy is
poised for a cyclical upturn. The Chinese slowdown and the resultant
falling commodity prices (especially crude) have provided a huge cushion
to the government to maintain a balance between growth and fiscal
consolidation.
Furthermore, with falling inflation, the rate cut cycle (125 bps repo rate cut
in CY15) has begun, which is expected to be a huge boost for a revival of
the capex cycle as well as relief on working capital strains. The
governments improving gross tax collection (21.7% YoY in H1FY16) is

also expected to provide a lever for higher allocation towards


infrastructure spending.
The government has initiated a number of structural policy reforms like
power reforms, road sector reforms, implementation of DBT in centrally
funded welfare schemes, increasing FDI in many sectors, thrust on
manufacturing in sectors like defence, focus on ease of doing business,
taxation reforms, etc. The GST bill proposed to be discussed in Rajya
Sabha in the ongoing winter session is a crucial development which
investors will be watching. Any positive development on this front will
boost investor sentiments. Structurally, the outlook for Indian equity
markets remains good on the back of a steep correction in commodities,
especially crude oil & industrial metals, 125 bps repo rate cut and
subsequent transmission of the same to corporate balance sheets along
with relatively stable exchange rates
