Its around the same time 3 years ago our Markets started making new highs at rapid pace and now after 3 years we in the same phase. At that time the so called Analysts predicted Nifty to reach 7000 by 2008 December. Yep it moved but towards south, Nifty was around 3500 in Dec 2008.
Take a look at this in OCT 2007 from : Mr Adrian Mowat, Chief Asian and Emerging Market Strategist for JP Morgan
“We are bullish on emerging markets and bullish on the Indian equities market as well,”Its Ridiculous to hear from a Chief Strategist
“We continue to like the infrastructure story; it is a global story. We are upbeat on engineering and construction services and also on steel,”
Still Countries like Greece and Spain are unable to come out of the Real Estate bubble created at that time
Anyway leaving that and its not in my agenda to prolong that topic.Here i was looking at how Indian Markets reacted to Global Effects and how Quickly Market got a turnaround. I took a few sectors and compared how it performed vs Nifty. I had to take them out separately for scaling purpose
- Below is Bank Nifty in Comparison with Nifty. Bank Nifty and Nifty Reached Peak at same time in Feb-Mar 2008. From then on slide Started and Bank Nifty Underperformed Nifty and the Lehman Crisis made Nifty to Reach its lowest point . After that it was moving together for some 1 year and off late from April2010 it started Over Performing Nifty and is setting new Highs.
2. Infrastructure sector index also reached peak in Feb 2008 and slide started from then and it underperformed nifty by a margin till 2009 mid, But the thing which is interesting here is margin by which its underperformed is increased. That implies Infra sector has not come out of blues or Infra stocks at that time were quoting at irrational prices. Anyway if heard of JP Morgan analyst comments and believe him then its Good time to buy selective Stocks like Noida Toll Gate,Lanco,GMR at right price. BTW whats the right price ? :) BTW check this Lodha Devlopers
Alleged Scam). Both the stocks suffered a lot from real estate price crash as well as huge debt on its books. I guess the Hangover for real estate stocks is not over and still they are unable to reach the past glory .Here comes Lodha tallest building for ultra Rich
