    @Raviraj
    In the current rally, Domestic consumer theme based sectors like FMCG, auto, pharma are outperformers and currently they are trading at premium valuations. On the other side infrastructure theme based sectors like power utilities, capital goods, even construction stocks are quite underperformer and their valuations are corrected significantly. If you want to invest now with a long term view of 5 years then infrastructure theme is the best bet. Due to high demand potential and planned govt spending in this sector, infrastructure stocks will benefit hugely in the next five years.
    This is my viewpoint. Do your own research before taking call.
    Happy investing 🙂

    Hi,
    I am not to sure when is it a good time to invest in markets when they are going down or when they are going up. A lot of ppl say that this is not the best time to invest as market is at its peak. Some say that Indian Co shares are cheap and undervalued. What if market touches 30K? Its our own choice? Go for quality cos I feel but then one must remember that stock markets can go up or down anytime and there is no good or bad time to buy it if u are a long term investor. This is my opinion I ma be wrong but then I would say when market was at 8K none of the analyst predicted that markets will bounce back to 20K in 1 year or 2 or 3. You are the best judge but then yes it is a risky proposition at any stage.

    Never time your investment in the market and do not invest directly in stocks if you do not have the requisite knowledge and time. Opt for Mutual Funds instead. If you really want to invest in stocks, invest in companies which are fundamentally strong…Do some more research to find out which companies are fundamentally strong… All the Best 🙂

    Investing in Equities at this point of time is not advisable. May be stock specific like Banking Sector, Pharmaceutical Sector might help in the mid to long term.

  6. Do not invest now. Just wait for some correction & enter in quality stocks in banking sector like SBI, ICICI etc. You can also look for construction & Engg. stocks like L&T.

    These are evergreen sectors.

    But always make strict stop-loss & then trailing stop-loss.

    Hope it will help you.
