India Outperforms Other Emerging Markets in 2018
Jul 12, 2018

On 30 December 2017, we wrote to you about India being the top performer among emerging markets.

If the first half is anything to go by, the trend looks set to continue.

For the year till date, India has outperformed its emerging market peers yet again. While the Indian stock market index has returned 7.2%, the Chinese index has declined by 15.6%.

But, is this a false dawn?

Indian mid and small caps have fallen by 12.8% and 14.8% this year.

Even in the Sensex, majority of the gains are due to only eight out of the thirty stocks. Tanushree calls them Sensex Dominoes.

Rising crude oil prices, rising interest rates, Donald Trump's trade war, and the strengthening of the US dollar are the main reasons for the fall in emerging markets. Foreign investors feel much more comfortable moving their funds to developed markets in the current scenario.

These factors are unlikely to improve any time soon.

Also, the Indian general elections coming up next year. It's time to brace yourselves for a lot of volatility and uncertainty in the near term.

But that doesn't mean you can't find safe stocks in this market. Tanushree certainly can. She believes, during times like these, the best thing you can do is to identify stocks that can ride out the storm.

In fact, just last week, Tanushree identified two such stocks for her premium StockSelect subscribers.
