And history repeats itself Overall RATE RATE (0.00)

In early march, we had highlighted historical behavior of the stock market. We had also highlighted how important it is to track reaction of markets to the events occurring at periodic intervals. Events trigger the momentum in equity markets. Moreover, one such major event that India is tracking currently is ‘election 2014’. We had briefed you in our last article (given below again for your reference) on how the markets move up or down in line with consensus on future results from an anticipated event.


As per our back testing on markets, they have shown a positive tendency to events such as elections 2014. As per our expectations, markets have moved up considerably post poll outcome1. Further, they are looking strong enough to deliver above average returns in next 6 to 12 months.


During our article dated March '14, the NSE Nifty 50 had recorded a close of 6221 with moderate trail P/E levels of ~17.5. As of today, Nifty is trading above 7200 with trail P/E levels of around 20. The P/E level is almost up by 2.5 point from the lows of Mar ’14, but it is still quoting at moderate levels just around 20.


Markets have moved up positively, as indicated by us in last one month. NSE Nifty 50 index delivered 16.6% absolute returns in less than 3 month, marking a remarkable performance by equities. Nifty 50 has given average average returns of 0.3% in the last three month on a daily basis. Echoing the same performance, mutual funds have also delivered above average returns and even some top funds beating Nifty returns in the last three months by handsome margine.


The positive momentum could be due to anticipation of an event, which is expected to deliver a positive environment. However, other factors that have also started supporting this momentum such as lower inflation, strong global markets, and expected downward movement in interest rates cannot be kept on the sidelines.

Despite the positive momentum, market (Nifty 50 index) is quoting at moderate trail P/E levels of 19, which creates ample scope for above average returns in coming months.


Thus, we can conclude that as per our early March article, history has repeated itself with a combination of an anticipated event-based trigger and the build-up of positive economic environment leading to positive momentum, which is expected to continue, backed by descent fundamentals. As advised earlier, investors could continue to hold above average allocation to equities and gain from the positive economic environment, as history continues to repeat itself.

Will history repeat itself?

Events trigger the momentum in equity markets. Any big event such as budget or RBI policy could make or break the stock market. You may gain or lose on your investments post such events. One such upcoming event is the Elections 2014.


Equity markets work on expectations and it could turn out to be positive or negative. Markets try to position themselves as per the general consensus and at times, much before an actual event. They try to achieve valuations in relation to future expectations. Currently, the expectation is built on the formation of a new government in India and whether it will be a stable government.


Coalition governments in the last few years have proved to be unstable. It has been long since we have seen a government with a comfortable majority, without any post election tie-ups. The Indian equity markets still depend largely on FIIs and for this reason; stability of a government is one of the most important factors.


Therefore, it is crucial that India gets a stable government and one with a full majority. Unfortunately, the country is divided on regional levels with no clear choice of a single party. For example, people in the North and the West have similar opinions, owing to the fact that Hindi is a common language there and is understood very well. However, regional languages are prevalent in the South and the East and so the people have preference to regional parties. These regional parties give support to the government, but at times, they withdraw their support, which poses a threat to a stable government at the national level.


In this time though, there is hope that we will have a government with a full majority. This positive expectation in the election outcome has boosted the markets, which have registered all-time highs. As we write this article, the Nifty is trading well above its all-time high. Although this is a pre-election rally, it is also well supported by strong global markets and overall positive sentiments on the economy compared with the previous year.


On the valuations front, most of the market participants feel that markets are moderately valued. With slightly better results in the last quarter, the NSE Nifty trail P/E is still trading between 18 – 19 levels. These could be considered as moderate levels for investments with enough room to move up in case of positive news flow and further improvement in the economy.


Historically, the rally in equity markets is seen during election time in anticipation of a stable government, which is not impossible for India to achieve this time around. Considering descent valuation of equity markets with stable consumption, strong global markets, and expectations of a stable government, we could expect the markets to deliver above average returns compared with other traditional investment products.


We hope that history would repeat itself to deliver better returns pre and post election, if the expectations are met. Investors may have a 70% – 80% allocation to good quality equities to gain from moving markets.

CPI inflation path is critical - Debt Market Review Overall RATE RATE (0.00)

RBI on Feb 5, 2014 announced that it has successfully conducted the gilt-switch worth Rs. 27,000 Cr for securities with maturities of 2014-15 and 2015-16. The switching of GOI securities eased the redemption pressure lined up for 2014-15 and 2015-16.

The government tabled its interim budget for 2014-15. As per the revised estimates, the fiscal deficit for FY14 is contained at 4.6% of GDP (better than 4.8% stated in 2013-14BE). The fiscal deficit for FY15 is budgeted at 4.1% of GDP standing at Rs 5,28,631 Cr. The gross market borrowing for FY15 is budgeted at Rs 5,97,000 Cr while the net borrowing is budgeted at Rs 4,57,321 Cr.

The interim budget failed to have a positive impact on the bond market. Although gross borrowing below Rs 6 Lakh crore was welcomed, there has been an increased discomfort with respect to quality of fiscal consolidation.

Combined CPI inflation came in at 8.79% for Jan-14 (9.87% in Dec-13) and the WPI inflation for Jan-14 fell sharply to 5.05% (6.16% in Dec-13) led by correction in vegetable prices.

RBI has been emphasizing the need to bring down the high level of inflation to make headroom to support growth. Going forward, the outlook for Headline CPI inflation has improved and is expected to clock in a number near RBI’s estimate. However, the path for core CPI inflation will also be critical for RBI’s stance on the monetary policy.

On February 26, 2014, RBI governor Raghuram Rajan said that current interest rates are “appropriately set”, hinting that rates are likely to remain unchanged in the forthcoming monetary policy in April 2014. Mr. Rajan also set a consumer price inflation (CPI) target of 8% for January 2015 and 6% for January 2016, adding that RBI will not administer shock therapy to a weak economy and would aim to bring down prices over time.
