Global markets

US markets ended higher during the week on smooth progress of US-China trade deal talks. China’s state-run Xinhua news agency said Washington and Beijing were making substantive progress on trade talks, providing relief after news that a summit to seal a deal between the two sides would not happen at March-end.

Crude oil

Brent Crude prices were up and closed at US$ 67.3/barrel as compared to previous week's close of US$ 65.8/barrel.

Ajcon’s view

We believe the recent rally is owing to expectation of stable government formation at the centre, likely improved Q4FY19 earnings season, smooth progress of US – China trade talks and US Fed commentary. After the recent buoyancy, some profit booking is expected. The midcaps and smallcaps are still at discount of 40-50% of their 52 week peak even after the recent upsurge.

All eyes would be now on Q4FY19 earnings season, global cues (oil prices, currency movement, relations between economic giants) and domestic cues amidst ongoing tussle between India - Pakistan. Globally, improving relationship between US and China will improve global sentiment amidst slowdown in China’s economic growth. Going ahead, street participants would keenly watch political developments, outcome of exit polls and actual result of General Elections. We believe domestic bourses would remain volatile till general elections 2019 results are out.

We believe the Indian equity markets are in a structural bull run as the benefits of implementation of GST, Insolvency and Bankruptcy code, digitization, thrust on Make in India and improving relations with key foreign countries would augur well for the economy in the long run. The strategy at present should be to invest in phased manner only in companies which are not connected to any political party, have a robust business model, strong earnings and cashflow visibility, low debt and backed by quality management especially on the corporate governance front. Considering the above factors, investors can have a stock specific approach in midcaps and smallcaps space. We would suggest investors to have a look at Consumption stocks, top quality Pharma companies, NBFCs having strong parentage, Auto and auto ancillary stocks, Gas companies, PSU banks (looking better after the cleanup of NPA mess, progress made  under  IBC), IT sector and Private Insurance Companies at the current moment.
