Equitymaster on capital goods stocks

Here's what Aditya Vora, Financial Writer at Equitymaster, wrote about the capital goods sector in one of the editions of Profit Hunter:

  • I'm a firm proponent of the economic revival theme in the stock market. I'm bullish on capital goods and infrastructure stocks.

    These sectors have emerged stronger from an elongated down cycle. There is also a strong momentum in economic indicators which is in favour of these stocks.

    Indicators like rising construction equipment sales, record highway construction run rate, capacity expansion by private players in the cement, metals, and consumer durables gives us confidence of a strong capex cycle ahead.

    There may be a near term speed bump to the economic recovery due to the rising covid cases and lockdowns. However, I believe we are at an inflection point with regards to the capex cycle.

    The cycle has turned up.

The recent Hidden Treasure recommendation is a fundamentally strong business in the capital goods space that is 'essential' to the infrastructure revival.
