  8. 8. May turned out to be a lackluster month for markets with nifty being down 3.3%. RBI’s more than anticipated hike in interest rate leadto a dampening of equity market sentiment. FII’s withdrew around 5000 Crores from Indian markets. There has been a net outflow ofaround 1000 Crores by FIIs so far in this calendar year.The Q4 earnings season has ended with more negative surprises than positive. Sectors like Energy, PSU banks and real estatedisappointed with their Q4 numbers. On the other hand, private banking, Pharma and IT space delivered a good set of numbers.Pressure in margin is visible for engineering, construction and manufacturing companies due to increase in commodity prices and risinginterest rates. Metal companies on the other hand benefitted from this rise in commodity prices.With good monsoons on the cards, we expect the food inflation to come down. However, Crude oil prices have not come down andhave been hovering around 110$/barrel for brent crude. A partial pass though of this is expected with an anticipated increase in dieselprices. This would put further upward pressure on inflation numbers which could average around 8.5-9% for the next six months. In aneffort to bring down the headline inflation, the RBI has raised its policy (Repo) rate nine times by a total of 250 basis points since March2010 but increasing fuel costs and commodity prices have kept the inflation above acceptable levels. The Real Estate and capital goodsspace could see moderation in demand due to this increase in borrowing costs. Pharmaceutical and IT sector are two sectors which arerelatively immune to inflation and interest rate pressures and would do well going forward.Since the beginning of this calendar year, Nifty has corrected by more than 9%. Post this, the markets are trading at a very reasonablevaluation of 14 times FY12 earnings. Despite the expectation of an economic slowdown, the economy is still expected to grow at 7.5-8% for FY12. There are short term concerns like inflation, interest rates and global volatility but a large part of that is already discountedby the market. We look forward to quarter one earnings for FY12 starting in July to give more clarity on full FY12 earnings. The monsoonsession of Parliament, also starting in July, could see some reform measures being announced. We expect a robust earnings growth of17-18% for FY12 which will drive equity market returns in the medium to long term. 8
  9. 9. Sector Stance Remarks We believe in a large sized opportunity presented by Pharma sector in India. India’s strength in generics is difficult to replicate due to quality and quantity of available skilled manpower. With theHealthcare Overweight developed world keen to cut healthcare costs, and a vast pipeline of drugs going off-patent, Indian pharma players are at the cusp of rapid growth. Here, we have taken exposure to medium-sized, non- index ideas while trying to play on the opportunity in Generics and CRAMS. Robust volume growth led by some uptick in pricing makes IT an attractive investment. Market shareIT/ITES Overweight gains led by deeper and wider expansion of global delivery model will drive earnings growth. Best played through Tier I stocks. Financial sector is undeniably the lubricant for economic growth. Whether the growth comes from consumption or investments, credit growth is inevitable. Being a well regulated sector, BFSI in IndiaBFSI Equalweight has good asset quality and capital adequacy ratios. This, when juxtaposed to the growth opportunity available makes an attractive long term opportunity. The exposure is in “discretionary consumption” beneficiaries such as Paints and branded food, as theFMCG Equalweight growth in this segment will disproportionately higher vis-à-vis the increase in disposable incomes. This also provides a defensive posture to the portfolio. Demand outlook remains very robust with strong earnings growth despite raw material price hikesAutomobiles Equalweight and raging competition. We are more bullish on commercial vehicle and agricultural vehicles segment due to lesser competition and higher pricing power. 9
  10. 10. Sector Stance Remarks Indian metal companies will benefit from global upturn in demand. Commodity prices haveMetals Equal weight moved up significantly as recovery takes place in US and Europe. Positive on the producers of Steel, Copper and Aluminium. The USD 1 trillion Infra opportunity is hard to ignore. Here, we have carefully taken Power sector as our dominant bet over other sub sectors such as ports, roads and telecom infrastructure, becauseE&C Underweight of favorable economics under PPP model. Within power, we focus on the engineering companies over utilities, T&D and other infrastructure owners because of their superior profitability and better competitive dynamics.

The huge capex incurred in the rollout of 3G services will put further stress on the already stretched balance sheets. Remain cautious on Sector’s prospects. Through a single company, we have taken a large-sized exposure to refinery and natural gas exploration sector. The regulatory cap on RoE does not allow a vast value creation opportunity inEnergy Underweight the infrastructure owning companies. We have also purposely tried to stay away from PSUs, due to issues of cross subsidization distorting the underlying economics of oil exploration and refinery businesses. Cement demand will certainly grow over the next three years. But the issue is on the supply side.Cement Underweight We do see an oversupply situation for the next 3-4 quarters. We like the growth prospects of power sector but believe that value will be created byPower Utilities Underweight engineering services providers. Merchant power rates have been sliding downwards and coal prices have been on the way up putting pressure on return ratios. 10

We have seen the short term yields Debt harden due to reduced liquidity due to expected advance tax outflows and consecutive rate hikes prompted by inflationary pressures. Hence, Short term bond funds and FMPs provide an interesting investment option. Some AA and select A rated securities are very attractive at the current yields. A similar trend can be seen in the Fixed Credit Deposits also. Tight liquidity in the system has also contributed to widening of the spreads making entry at current levels attractive. With tight liquidity and inflationary pressure being high, we expect more rate hikes in the current year. As the inflationary Long Tenure pressure begins to settle down, these may be attractive Debt investments but currently, we would recommend staying out of the longer term investments. 14

  17. 17. Asset Classes Tier-1* Tier-II** Residential This sector is the only one to be left out of the correction These cities still manage to sell from the attractive entry point wrath. Heavy media reporting’s on probable correction, 40% (Avg. Rs.2800-3600 per sqft) but are getting over-supplied in down-trend in sales and unavailability of finance to pockets. A recent report from Knight Frank suggests that these developers are the major factors putting pressure on this cities have seen lot of investor confidence between 2007-2009 segment to correct. The investor community also varies on which for some reasons have seen 30% down-trend. Typically the assumptions on account of bad sales and gives their “no the investor’s early buy-in and upfront payment of the total confidence motion” towards any visible appreciation. Markets consideration for best discount gives the developer strong hold like NCR, Pune, Hyderabad and Chennai would set the course time for local demand.

Surely, the segment is at the down-tip of the cycle, and is the best opportunity for companies looking for long term holding of real estate office space. Since most of the commercial growth had happened in 05-06, many lease agreements are getting expired giving way for companies to shift base, re-negotiate, etc. IT/ITEs would remain the main driver for consumption. Retail Sales have definitely recovered but distress in the over- Unlike the Tier 1 markets the retails is unable to cope with sales supplied market is evident. Many deals have been done on and thus the sales to rent ratio is becoming bigger pulling down Revenue Share, giving more control to the Lessee to hold the rent paying capacity.
