Let’s dive right in!
Markets Last Month
The month of November has extended the bullish market phase as Nifty 50 climbs to an all-time high. Foreign money flowing in has provided thrust to our markets. That being said, there’s a distinct gap between the performance of large caps versus mid and small caps. The foremost reason behind large caps’ outperformance is investors’ preference to safety, as there is volatility on the counter. Now before moving on to specific sectoral observations, I’d like to touch upon the valuations scenario of our markets. When pitted against other EMs, we are almost trading at a 100% premium on a 1-yr Forward PE. This definitely paves way for caution going forward. And against developed markets, the gap shrinks however the premium persists.
On the sectoral bit, we’ve seen huge moves on PSU banks over the last few months, wherein they’ve moved anywhere between 8 to 16%, barring September. Our sense is asset quality clean-up coupled with strong credit off-take is a huge tailwind for these banking companies. To top it up, they are also enjoying valuations comfort, as all the PSU banks (ex SBI) trade below 1x P/B as compared to private players in the 2.5x range. On the other hand, Auto companies, albeit not shown strong performance in this month, are actually seeing sentiments improving. Domestic sales have begun to pick up for 2Ws and 4Ws companies with easing in supply chain issues.
