(iv) The table below shows earnings of various sectors, and their share in Nifty's bottomline.

How did the index behave in Feb-21?


  • Swifter than expected economic recovery, mass-vaccination drives  upbeat corporate earnings have lent support to the rally in the Indian stock market.
  • However,  interest rate volatility has impacted investor sentiment. The BEER ratio in India has crossed 1.4, indicating that bonds are relatively more attractive as compared to equities. 
  • Empirically when yields have gone up, stock markets trend downwards as future cash flows get discounted at a higher rate, making equities look unattractive.
  • Surge in cases in specific parts of India has brought in a fear of second round of lockdowns.
  • In this environment, we advise a up-in-quality approach across both stocks and bonds, along with a focus on valuations and fundamentals.
