Before the next rally, the market may cool slightly, buy on the decline in quality stocks

Rahul Sharma, Equity 99

Bharti market is trading at record high. Sensex is seen trading above 58,000 and Nifty above 17,000 for the first time on the back of strong economic recovery, heavy liquidity in the market and good global cues. The market is getting strong support from IT, Consumer Packaged Goods, Metal and Realty. However, in this rally, the banks are seen standing a little far away.

Indian markets have outperformed Asian markets so far this year. Nifty Midcap 100 seems to be scaling new highs after the August selloff. It has touched the level of 29,000. Blue chip stocks have also participated in the rally so far. The leadership of this pack has been in the hands of Reliance. Nifty is currently trading at a price-to-earnings multiple of 26.60x. In March, it was at a price to earning multiple of 19.38x.

After such an uptrend, it is natural for the market to have a slight correction for the next round of bullishness. Now investors are advised to keep some profit in their pocket if they have achieved their target. Traders are advised to place a trailing stoploss on their positions. At present, investors should adopt a buying strategy on the downside in those stocks which are doing fundamentally well and which have potential to rise further.

It is expected that there will be good growth in the banking and auto sector going forward. Consolidation is being seen in banking at this time. Banking sector will get good benefits from further economic recovery. Auto stocks recently saw a fall on the back of chip shorts. Chip shortage problem is temporary. After this problem is resolved, auto stocks will see a strong rally. A thrust on electrical vehicles will also boost auto stocks.
