Pharma is one area in which we are majorly overweight. It is slightly lower than what we were 6 months ago, but still it remains one of our big overweight bets. We are majorly underweight financials. But if we get a decent correction in corporate banks, then we would want to buy because over the next 2-3 years we will see NPAs coming off and the corporate banks will do well. We have some capital goods. We are neutral to slightly overweight capital goods. But that is something over the next 2-3 years which we think will do well and we keep adding to capital goods as we get dips in the market.

The stock market is solely focused on the future. Hopes of a quick economic revival post unlock and expectation of a large number of the adult population vaccinated in 2021, are keeping markets excited. Q4 FY21 earnings have been encouraging, even after adjusting for the low base of March 2020. The broader market is very healthy. It is very likely that the top 10 heavyweights of the Sensex, which have been dormant for some time, will begin to participate. Already RIL has resumed its up move after a six-month lull. This will add to the strength of Indian equities. Our target for Sensex is 60,000 by December 2021.

The Nifty is in fine form this morning – it is heading towards 15,900-16,000. A buy on dips is a better strategy to adopt as opposed to buying at the current market level. This is because the risk is to reward ratio is more favourable when traders accumulate positions on dips. The risk is lower and the targets are higher. The index has good support at the 15,600 levels and until we do not disrespect this level on a closing basis, the overall trend remains bullish.

Falling US Bond Yields along with supportive global cues ensure Nifty didn’t break key support levels. Good monsoon, improving Covid situation & falling VIX should keep markets driving higher.”

Gold loan companies could benefit due to higher inflation, says Geosphere’s Arvind Sanger
Some gold loan companies could benefit due to higher inflation, said Arvind Sanger, managing partner at Geosphere Capital Management, on Friday. Speaking in an interview with CNBC-TV18, he said, “Commodity producers will benefit and maybe some of the gold loan companies too. Housing lenders could be beneficiaries, ethanol too if oil is going higher and if the government has made a big commitment to ethanol. I think that is not going to go away in terms of importance where sugar stocks are related entities for ethanol.” More here
Morning market quote from V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services
“The debate over the nature of inflation in the US – whether transitory or structural – continues. Only time will tell who is right. But for now, the market is strongly on the side of equity bulls who believe that the high inflation is transitory & will soon stabilise. Even though the 5 percent consumer inflation print in May came worse than the consensus estimate of 4.4 percent the market shrugged it off & the S&P 500 touched record highs. The fact that the US 10-year yield crashed to 1.44 percent and the dollar index is hovering around 90 indicates that there is more leg for this bull market. The exuberance in the mid and small-cap space is an area of concern. But markets can over-react proving the skeptics wrong in the short run. In 2017 the small index rose around 60 percent. The froth was removed in 2018 with big pain to the late entrants. Leading financial, IT, pharma and metals are on a strong wicket. Stay invested in these segments while exercising caution when investing in small-caps”
