Stock Tips is the hot topic for any investor. Recently, i included Stocks Category on my Blog. The objective of this category is to provide critical analysis of Stocks/Specific Sectors/Markets. Personally i am not in favor of sharing any Stock Tips as each investor has different investment objective and time horizon. As i highlighted in my post, Stock Market Tips – Business of Selling Dreams how this has become a business. After i started posting my views on Stock Market, i am flooded with queries from my readers on Stock Tips and Recommendations. In my opinion, any stock recommendation without any holding is of no meaning. Based on my readers request, i have decided to share my stock portfolio on my Blog. Through this section, I will share the stocks which i am buying and selling along with reasons for the same. I will also share the sectors on which i am bullish and sectors which i am avoiding. I will also discuss the most popular stock tips floating in the market and why i agree or disagree with the same. In one of my future post i will share how i select a particular stocks but the sole criterion is only Stock Valuation. I only pick those stocks which are available at cheap valuation with strong growth potential.
After touching the bottom of around 7950, currently the market is in short-term bullish trend. Experts are of the opinion that it is a temporary phase and the market will drop after this brief rally. The main reason is that FII’s are still net sellers whereas DII’s are net buyers. Last month Mutual Fund inflow was very strong therefore DII’s are supporting the market. It will be interesting to note whether FII’s will be back in the market before DII’s empty their pocket. If it doesn’t happen then the market can drop to lower levels. For the time being market signals are bullish.
Currently, i am bullish on following sectors.
(a) Private Banks: Any economy recovery cycle benefits the banking sector the most. I am not convinced with the performance of Public Sector Banks as they are obliged to fulfill social agenda of the govt which impact their performance. Though govt is trying hard to bring down NPA’s and bring accountability but in my opinion, there is a long way to go.
(b) Infrastructure: With the thrust on Infrastructure sector, next few years will be the golden period for infrastructure companies.
(c) Oil: As i mentioned in my other posts that crude is on the path of recovery. It will stabilize near 70 dollars. Any recovery in crude is good news for Oil and Refinery companies. Also, the subsidy burden is not a major concern for oil companies. They can now focus on performance.
Currently, i am bearish on following sectors
(a) Telecom: With the launch of Reliance Jio the margins of telecom companies will be under tremendous pressure. All the telecom companies are dropped from Asia Index which is also not a good sign for the sector.
(b) FMCG: With the concern on monsoon, Maggi issue, and other developments, the FMCG sector will be a nonperformer. These stocks are also dependent on Rural demand which may be stagnant.
(c) Auto: Though many analysts are bullish on some of the auto stocks but i am bearish on this sector. Similar to FMCG, they are also dependent on Rural demand. A good monsoon can change the trend.
