the Nifty earnings growth could be around 15-17 percent in FY20.
Vaibhav Sanghavi, co-CEO of Avendus Capital Alternate Strategies, spoke to CNBC-TV18 about the selloff in the equity market and shared his views on select sectors.
"There seems to be some amount of comfort on valuation front but the market movement in short-term depends on various factors like the resolution on Alternative Investment Funds (AIF) and Foreign Portfolio Investors (FPI) tax, as well as on government measures to pump-up the economy," Sanghavi said on August 5.
"Currently, the market is also going through pressure from turbulence in global markets with regards to the Chinese Yuan," he said.
With regards to midcaps and small caps, he said, "If one has a longer-term view of 3-5 years then one can look at some of them but not constructive on them for the short to medium term because there is no broader economic growth yet."
With regards to sectors, Sanghavi said, "Export-driven sectors like IT, pharma would perform better and on defensive side consumers but wait to buy into consumer stocks. Structurally, long-term bullish on the whole consumer basket."
Auto space he said is probably in the last leg of the slowdown and in the festive season, one may see some recovery in sales. It is probably time to get into autos, he added.
According to him, the Nifty earnings growth could be around 15-17 percent in FY20.Source: CNBC-TV18Subscribe to Moneycontrol Pro and gain access to curated markets data, trading recommendations, equity analysis, investment ideas, insights from market gurus and much more.
