The ‘operation twist’ initiated by the Fed lead about capital adequacy and asset quality. The short term to widespread disappointment in the markets as it clearly fell equity view remains cautious although we see value short of investor expectations. All asset classes came under emerging in selected pockets. As markets drift down, pressure with equities and commodities taking a bigger cut. In US, investors can look at slowly increasing the beta of their Banks briefly led the S&P500 into bear-market territory as fears of portfolio systematically thus positioning for outperformance contagion from Europe spread. The month end saw partial over the recovery as and when it happens. After the last recovery as macroeconomic data improved somewhat in United correction, private sector banking space appears cheap and States. should merit selective buying. Other higher beta sectors like metals and capital goods could also see strong recovery on After a very volatile September, there are signs that European hopes of stabilization in European situation . crisis would be contained as of now. European political leadership and Central Bank have been taking steps to firewall other euro- We continue to advise investors to lock-in the high yields in zone members like Italy and Spain from the crisis. Unlike Greece, the fixed income space. We expect further interest rate hikes these countries face a liquidity crisis and not solvency issues; in the next two RBI meets with a total hike of 25-50bps. Efforts are on to recapitalize the European banking system. It is also expected that Greece might be allowed to default in an orderly fashion Greece thereby limiting the contagion. 3“Advisory services are provided through Karvy Stock Broking Ltd.

  • The month of September has seen increased volatility in Global markets as the macro economic data indicates that developedcountries- US, Eurozone and Japan are seeing significant slowdown in growth and could be moving towards a recessionaryenvironment. Eurozone continues to grapple with solvency and liquidity issues. There are renewed concerns about default by Greeceand sovereign debt rating of Italy has been downgraded. There has been a sharp counter-trend rally in dollar as the risk aversion tradeplays out coinciding with significant corrections in global equities, commodities and precious metals.In this months FOMC meeting, Fed decided to replace 400bl$ worth of short term maturity bonds with long duration one which couldhelp flatten the yield curve. This could put downward pressure on longer-term interest rates which lower cost of mortgage and autoloans and help spur some demand. However, the markets were disappointed as there was no indication of further quantitative easingalthough Fed Chairman continues to mention that Fed has several tools available at their disposal to spur growth and they will use it asand when required. With a sharp slowing down in growth and political bickering in Washington, Monetary stimulus is expected to playa bigger role in reviving US growth than what has been done so far by Fed.IMF has aggressively cut growth forecasts for the Eurozone countries and the fiscal austerity measures being undertaken might hurtgrowth further. The Markit flash Eurozone composite output PMI fell to 49.2 in September from 50.7 in August which would imply aneconomic contraction; the first in more than two years. The liquidity crisis continues to play out with rising risk of Spain and Italy losingmarket access. European Financial stability fund (EFSF) continues to buy government debt in the meantime. It is our view that sooneror later, European governments might agree to some kind of fiscal consolidation and Eurobonds may be allowed. That remains the oneof the most probable long term solution to prevent a full-blown crisis and a renewed round of panic might force the governmentsarrive at that earlier than expected.In India, we have continued to see equity market correction on the back of renewed FII selling. We have seen rupee depreciating closeto 12% from its levels of 44 n August, further compounding the downside for foreign investors. The sudden weakness of the INR hasbeen led by the recent risk aversion globally. The worst case scenario for Indian markets would be a Sensex level of 13,500 with themarkets discounting the FY13 earnings by 10 times( PE multiple at the low of 8000 in march 2009 was 10). We don’t expect this level,even if it comes, to sustain. The recent correction has brought the equity valuation down to very attractive levels. There is no reason topanic and move out of equity at this point of time. With inflation and interest rates close to peaking out in the next three months, thesecond half of this fiscal should be better for Indian equity. Although short term volatility may continue due to adverse global factors,we believe that markets are very close to the bottom and it is a great time to go out and start building a long term equity portfolio. 8 8
  • Sector Stance Remarks We believe in the 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. We would bet on the opportunity in Generics and CRAMS space We prefer “discretionary consumption” beneficiaries such as Cigarettes and branded garments, as the FMCG Overweight growth in this segment will be disproportionately higher vis-à-vis the increase in disposable incomes. The USD 1 trillion Infra opportunity is hard to ignore. We believe Power sector to be a better play over oEther sub sectors such as ports, roads and telecom infrastructure, because of favorable economics E&C Neutral under PPP model. Within power, we like the engineering companies and utilities over T&D and other infrastructure owners because of their superior profitability and better competitive dynamics. 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 India has BFSI Neutral good asset quality and capital adequacy ratios. Despite the increasing in interest rates, we believe banks will be able to pass on higher cost of funds to clients as demand remains strong The regulatory hurdles, competitive pressures and leverage prevent any return to high profitability levels Telecom Neutral in the short to medium term. However, incumbents have started to increase tariffs slowly and we believe that consolidation will happen sooner than expected. 9 9
  • Sector Stance Remarks Demand outlook remains robust with strong earnings growth. Raw material prices have startedAutomobiles Neutral coming down which would boost margins. We are more bullish on two-wheeler and agricultural vehicles segment due to lesser competition and higher pricing power. IT space might come under pressure due to continued concerns about growth in developed parts IT/ITES Underweight of the world. While US and European customers of Indian IT companies are in good health, Order inflows might slow down in near term We would stay away from oil PSUs, due to issues of cross subsidization distorting the underlying Energy Underweight economics of oil exploration and refinery businesses. Commodity prices are coming under pressure due to concerns about growth in developed parts Metals Under weight of the world. Hence a cautious stance is recommended 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
  • 8.8 Yield curve 10-yr G-sec yield 8.60 8.7 8.40 8.6 8.20 8.5 8.00(%) 8.4 7.80 7.60 8.3 7.40 8.2 7.20 8.1 7.00 8.0 6.80 0.0 1.0 1.9 2.9 3.9 4.8 5.8 6.7 7.7 8.6 9.6 10.6 11.5 12.5 13.4 14.4 15.4 16.3 17.3 18.2 19.2 • After a decrease in the yields last month, the 10 year benchmark G–Sec yield increased by 13 bps in September to close at 8.44%. This was after an increase of 25 bps in the interest rates by RBI. Though this increase had been factored in, the unexpectedly high borrowing schedule for Q2 made the yields spike considerably towards the end of the month. • After trading at 8.30 levels, moderation was seen in the yields of the 1 year papers post the announcement of the borrowing plan by the Govt. The 1 year paper was trading at 8.10 levels at the end of the month. • With no respite from the high inflation in spite of monetary tightening, we expect another 25 - 50 bps hike in the year. 11
  • Category Outlook Details We recommend investment into short term bond funds with a 6-12 month investment horizon as we expect them toShort Tenure deliver superior returns due to high YTM. We have seen the Debt short term yields harden due to reduced liquidity and consecutive rate hikes prompted by inflationary pressures. Till these factors do not stabilize, we see Short term bond funds and FMPs as 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 inflationary pressure not easing, we expect more rate hikes in the year though these may not be implemented immediately Long Tenure and could be limited to a couple of hikes. Moreover, these hikes are already expected and may get factored in. Hence, we have Debt changed our stance from negative to neutral and believe that it may be a good time to start looking for interesting investment opportunities in the medium term. 12

Increased limits for investment by given the continuous demand for dollars by oil importers and FIIs would also help in bringing in more funds though other corporates. uncertainty in the global markets could prove to be a dampener. 13
