“Today, the Government of India bond for five years and 10 years is close to about 7-7.5% and corporate bond for five years is about 7.5%. This kind of yield is even adjusted for earnings but is attractive for investors to park their money. Therefore, in the overall asset allocation, equity, ETF and even the bond portfolio should be part of the consideration.”

Nithya Balasubramanian on why Cipla will outperform its peers and market post FY23

“In trade generics, Cipla traditionally has been a market leader and I believe that in the next three-four years, trade generics will continue to grow faster than the market and given that they are market leaders with established equity in the system and distribution muscle, I expect Cipla to grow faster.”

Bond market has been factoring in a series of rate hikes: A Bala

“The bond market point of view in fact is that though the bond yields have gone up by 20 bps today, otherwise the market has been building in a significant expectation and that is the way the bond yields have been reflecting on the potential rate hike which RBI would have eventually made.”

We are probably still in a 10-year bull market in India: A Bala

“India is still called a developing economy and till such time we become actual part of the developed economy globally, the hope and optimism for India will continue and we cannot look at a one-year market or a 10-year market. I still believe that we are probably in a 10-year bull market in India, given the fact we still have a long way to go.”

“When it comes to pharma we are not seeing secular growth. While India can be a secular growth story, we believe the US would not be and therefore one can bet on specific names from a long-term perspective – something like a Cipla or a Sun. Cipla because of its complex generic portfolio and Sun because of its specialty generic portfolio. In pharma, one needs to be a bit more picky.”

Expect FII flows to return to Indian equities in 2022: A Bala

“Almost $11-$14 billion selloff that has come from FPI investors got absorbed by the domestic investors and that being the case, FIIs will reverse. FIIs are more opportunistic. Whenever they see fundamentals of the economy undergoing a change, they will jump the gun and start putting money. Though the biggest trigger will come from domestic investors, FII flows will be a big surprise for me in the year 2022.”

This is not the right time to get into commodities: A Bala

“One should look at banking sector from an investment angle. One should consider this fall as an opportunity. Stagger investment over a period of next one or two months, Be convinced that this current war probably may not be too long and at the same time, significant price increases can correct as sharply as they have risen once the dust settles down. Finally, one cannot wait for that timing to happen for one to consider investment.”

What to do with mid and smallcaps as market continues to correct: A Bala

“From an investor’s point of view, there is no doubt that when there is fear, one buys. But the question is whether it is going to subside immediately and it does not look like it is going to subside immediately. Given the fact that structurally till the supply side constraints are there, commodity prices will remain at an elevated level.”

“Sensex at 100,000 points cannot be ruled out given that we couldn’t predict that 60,000 on the index will come so fast. Predicting markets is a futile exercise. The power of compounding has been working beautifully for many years and this is simple mathematics -- 12-13 per cent compounding each year.”
