New Cabinet And Expected Reforms, The Equation For Next Bull Run

Share Market Weekly

Our Analysis

On the monthly expiry week, the indices were seen exhausted trading in the range of 100 points. However, if we put the may series altogether it was a roller coaster ride. In the first half was driven by profit bookings and post that prior to the exit polls, fresh buying took markets to new highs. The market witnessed a spectacular sprint of the decade during this phase, moreover, saffron partys win cherished the sentiments of investors. The win-win situation of investor and BJP led benchmarks to conclude the series tad above 11,900. Further, a decline in Brent crude prices by more than 5.5 percent played a role of cherry on cream.

Now, the euphoria around the election results settled down and BJP led NDA government have distributed the cabinet portfolio (refer below for detailed cabinet portfolio), its showtime now. Though NDAs optimistic first 100-day plan is boosting the various sectors in the economy, the government need to address some key issues on priority. Indias consumption and the financial sector is still wheezing through the liquidity crunch. Capital infusion in PSU banks through divestment from the public company & dividend from the RBI can bring the situation more on the softer side. Around all these things, RBIs monetary policy is yet another thing which can elevate the market sentiments if the rate cuts come up. Moreover, the simplification of GST in 2 slabs, a revamp of the corporate tax rate, tax exemption up to 5 lakh for a middle class, improvement of manufacturing and revitalize of make in India for the job creation, etc. are the major reforms that are expected to play the game ahead.

Looking at the current market situation, its quite visible that in the near term (2-3 years ) alpha would be created in mid and small cap space. The gap between valuations of the mid and small cap indices against the large cap is huge. According to our analysis, this performance gap counts around 26-27%. In FY18-19, small and mid-cap indices have underperformed and offered negative returns of 16-18 percent. However, during the same period nifty offered 11-12% positive returns. Moreover, Nifty Midcaps forward P/E (14.8x) is at a 19% discount as against Nifty (Large-cap) forward P/E (18.3x). Considering this gap we see a spike off in the mid cap and small cap space soon. So, its the time to pick the stories which are unfolding right now with the governments focus.

In the near term, the market is expected to dance on the tunes of macro data. GDP and the infrastructure output, monthly auto sale figures, RBI monetary policy and the progress in monsoon will remain the key events. Technically, benchmark indices are creating a strong foundation for the next leg of the rally, and therefore may correct in the shorter run to factor the recent higher pumpings.
