Why FMCG was the investor's darling in FY12?
Jun 15, 2012

As the government's reform measures fail to make any headway, investors have increasingly lost interest in economy and infrastructure related stocks. Instead the consumption story has once again taken centre stage. As seen in today's chart, the performance of the benchmark indices on the BSE over the past year, shows that commodity and infrastructure stocks have failed to evince investor interest. On the other hand more resilient and defensive sectors like FMCG and Healthcare have found more takers. Auto and banking sector have seen some volatility depending on the RBI's interest rate stance. But the negativity towards IT stocks is largely to do with the rupee's uncertain future with respect to the US dollar.
