As the Indian market continues to remain volatile and the front liners bearing the brunt of uncertain economic conditions, investors may now look forward to midcap counters to dwell on short-term performance.
Aashish Tater, Head of Research of Fort Share Broking, in an exclusive interview with CNBC-TV18's Udayan Mukherjee and Mitali Mukherjee, said that one should stay "cautious" while taking positions in this space. "The sector is heavy and has witnessed sequential lacklustre trade. In the short-term, high interest rates would hamper these companies' growth," he added.
Below is the verbatim transcript of his exclusive interview. Also watch the accompanying video.
Q: How are you reading the midcap sector?
A: Firstly, in the midcap space, I have a 'cautious' call as this sector is getting heavy, followed by consequent lacklustre trading sessions. Hence, it's difficult to make money in the short-term. However, the following picks should be looked with a slightly long-term horizon and can be added in small quantities. We are ignoring companies with debt because the cost of interest will hurt bottom-line performance. Thus, high interest rates would hamper midcap companies to grow significantly in the current macro situation.
