  3. 3. Dear Investor, On debt front, the statement of RBI at the September The recent rally in Indian equity markets has been remarkable. It announcement of monetary policy has calmed a lot of nerves. happened without a significant directional change in growth rate RBI effectively stated that the future changes in the monetary or nature of growth of the economy. The breakout was effectively policy will be driven more by the specific state of affairs at the a delayed realization of the strength and hence attractiveness of time of decision. This is in contrast to RBI’s stance so far Indian companies to domestic as well as foreign investors. While which was to bring the interest rates in the economy up to a we remain very bullish about the prospects of Indian equities in ‘normal’ level to avoid overheating. This normalization seems the medium term, the driver of the current rally makes us cautious to be over. We expect another 25 bps repo rate hike in in the short term. This rally is driven primarily by the foreign fund November (with potentially a larger hike in reverse repo rate inflows – which is also apparent from the sharp appreciation of to narrow the rate corridor). That however has been factored the Rupee in the recent weeks. in the long term debt yields. We recommend gradual entry However, Indian equities are still far from what can be deemed into long tenor debt with the expectation that the rate cycle bubble territory. The FY2011 price-to-earnings ratio at 20 remains would peak in near future. well below previous all-time highs. This keeps the window open A fear that is at the back of everyone’s mind is that of a for the long term investor to enter the equity markets at the double-dip recession in the developed economies. An present levels as well. The characteristic of an FII driven rally is interesting alternative for portfolio construction in such a that it typically favors index stocks. This points to an interesting context is to use a combination of debt and long dated investment strategy for investors worried about the ill-effects of FII options instead of debt and equity with the proportions pullout in near future. These investors would do well to find some altered suitably to have the same returns in the medium non-index alternatives in their preferred sectors – in the large cap term. This achieves two ends – higher liquidity and more space or even the mid-cap space. Another gauge would be to use importantly greater safety from extreme events. Such the extent of FII interest in a stock as a parameter for evaluation of portfolios are ‘Black Swan’-proof! In case of a major the attractiveness of a stock, thus favoring good stocks with lesser meltdown, such portfolios tend to lose lesser than their FII interest. These are short term measures though and can vanilla counterparts since their actual exposure to the risky backfire if the FII inflows continue unabated.. assets is through a small part of their total value. “Advisory services are provided through Karvy Stock Broking Ltd.

  5. 5. • The Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index which had increased last month declined sharply by 4.7 points to a seven month low of 48.5 in US September. The pullback in confidence was due to less favorable business and labor market conditions coupled with a pessimistic short term outlook. • US m-o-m unemployment rate increased to 9.6 per cent in August 10. • Euro-zone purchasing managers index slid to 53.7 from 55.1 in August. This is the lowest level in 8 months indicating a cooling of the sector after the Europe buoyant growth rates seen earlier this year. • Unemployment in the Euro zone remained stable at 10.1% in August but Germany and Austria saw significant improvement with unemployment falling to 6.2% in Spain. The unemployment in Spain reached a staggering 20.5%. • Japan’s industrial production declined by by 0.3% in August due to decreased global demand and a strong Yen. The manufacturing PMI declined to a low of Japan 49.5 in September, indicating contraction in the Japanese markets. • Japan’s unemployment rate decreased in August 10 (m-o-m) to 5.1% from 5.2% in July 10. . • The HSBC China Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index, increased to a four month high of 52.9 in September from 51.9 in August due to surging Emerging domestic demand. economies • China’s GDP is expected to rise 9.5% in 2010 accelerating from 9.1% in 2009.

  8. 8. The issues of abundance Indian equity participants have been pleasantly surprised by the unabated flow of foreign funds, and the month of September set a new record. These inflows are nothing but a reflection of the attention that India has drawn as a promising emerging market. Despite Sensex racing ahead, India focused equity funds continued to receive unprecedented magnitude of inflow. As per EPFR Global, around USD 300 mn were received in the week ending September 22, 2010 – the highest ever. These inflows have led to the Indian Rupee rising to a four-month high, raising discomfort among the policy makers, especially the RBI. Certainly, the central bank is concerned about the problems it poses for monetary policy. Time and again, various institutions have warned against the destabilizing impact of uncontrolled foreign inflows. But unlike countries like Brazil and Russia, India runs a trade deficit that is large and growing. The effect of foreign inflows has been muted so far. But this could change if this flow transforms into an uncontrollable deluge. With still a quarter to go and the recent momentum, FII inflows are expected to touch USD 25 bn for CY10. Anything uncontrollable will trigger policy action. The choice available with the policy makers to is not so straight forward. If the capital flows exceed the absorption capacity of the economy, RBI will either have to let Indian Rupee appreciate, or intervene in the currency markets. The former impacts the exporters while the later leads to excessive supply of Indian Rupee thereby further fuelling inflationary pressures. That is clearly an unenviable position to be in. So even as FII flows drive the markets, we need to be watchful for such a policy action. 8
  9. 9. More of index movement than markets The move in the market has not been homogeneous. As is the nature of any FII-led rally, this too has been concentrated much more on the index stocks. Even as Nifty moved up by almost 11.6% in the month of September, Nifty Junior and CNX Midcap have moved by a far more humble 5.6% each. This could be because of evident caution exercised by the domestic financial institutions and the retail segment. The frontline index stocks have outperformed mid- caps by a wide margin. Market outlook We believe that despite wholesome valuations and skepticism among the domestic investors, the markets will continue to stay buoyant. Till such time as FIIs remain the driving force, the large cap businesses will continue to find favor. We also believe that with the rising risk appetite sectors such as real estate, commodities and financial services will now dominate the next leg of market move. The news flow from the western world, China and Japan has been positive for some time now but it would be premature to declare all-green. FII flows are notoriously volatile and a short term correction due to adverse news clip cannot be ruled out. But there is nothing to indicate a large sized correction that is feared by some sections of the market observers. Our investment strategy is derived out of our current cautious stance on markets. We believe that current valuations are fair – neither dirt-cheap, nor prohibitively expensive. Indian markets will continue to be vulnerable to global news flow (from west) despite a strong domestic economy. 9

FII & MF data Sales growth 25000.0 FII MF 20000.0 15000.0 10000.0 • Substantial improvement in sales was witnessed in Q2 & Q3 5000.0 mainly in consumption oriented sectors of the economy. 0.0 Current Results by corporates show a strong Sales growth for the current quarter while consolidated figures are yet to -5000.0 come. -10000.0 • We expect improvement in sales in upcoming quarters; -15000.0 especially in the manufacturing space as domestic demand picks up. 80 • FIIs invested ` 24,978 Cr. in equities in the month of 60 Profit growth 40 September alone, driving the markets to 20k levels.

  18. 18. Category Outlook Details We recommend short term bond funds with a 6-12 month investment horizon as we expect them to deliver superior Short Tenure returns due to high YTM and concerns over credit quality ease Debt as the economy recovers, thereby prompting ratings upgrade. Positive economic climate has reduced credit risks without a commensurate decrease in credit spreads. Some AA and select Credit A rated securities are very attractive at the current yields. A similar trend can be seen in the Fixed Deposits also. Tight liquidity in the system has also contributed to widening of the spreads making entry at current levels attractive. We expect yields at the longer end of the yield curve to top out Long Tenure soon. Yields may move to the broad range of 7.5– 8.5% in the Debt next few quarters. As the inflationary pressure settles down towards the end of the fiscal, these may be an attractive investment. We recommend gradual entry into long tenor debt. 18
