Is it Time to Plan for Sensex 100,000?

Feb 1, 2021

Tanushree Banerjee, Co-Head of Research

As I write this, the BSE Sensex is set to chart one of its biggest Budget day gains.

At close to 50,000 level, the index has factored in many positives.

GDP growth could bounce back to 11% in FY22. A sharp revival in corporate earnings is almost certain. Bank NPA resolution is on the cards.

And the sluggish manufacturing sector is finally riding several tailwinds.

So, the question on your mind must be - Is it Time to Plan for Sensex 100,000?

Well, let me answer that for you.

3 Stocks for Potentially Massive Gains

COVID-19 has triggered a fundamental shift in the global economic and geopolitical map.

This reshuffling of the geopolitical map is just ONE of the forces fuelling the great Indian revival.

A revival that will restore the power, wealth, and influence we once enjoyed.

And, those who invest in the companies at the heart of this revival could turn a small stake into generational wealth.

Our co-head of research, Tanushree Banerjee, has narrowed down on 3 specific stocks.

She strongly believes, these 3 "revival stocks" could potentially offer massive gains.

In fact, I will also tell you how you should reset your stock picking to make the most of what is in store.

The biggest catalyst for Indian stock markets is a sharp and sustained revival in corporate earnings.

What was holding it back over the past five years was a sluggish infrastructure outlay and stagnant bank credit cycle.

Budget 2021 did address both these concerns to quite an extent.

Big ticket infra outlays in roadways, railways, shipping, gas pipelines, and power transmission, in fact took centre stage in the Budget.

And there are two reasons why I believe that infra plans won't remain on paper.

Revealed: 3 Stocks for Potentially Massive Gains

First, the dedicated Development Finance Institution could handle most of the long-term infra funding that banks shy away from.

Two, the Disinvestment and Asset Monetisation Pipeline, if executed well, could be a gamechanger for public funding.

LIC's IPO alone could raise up to Rs 900 bn. Sovereign wealth funds and pension funds could also come calling.

But what about the other sectors?

Well, a revival in credit cycle hinges on the bank NPA risks getting resolved. Privatisation of certain PSU banks and pooling the NPAs in a separate asset reconstruction company seem good makeovers.

But here is a caveat.

Neither the infrastructure story nor the credit led manufacturing revival are themes that could generate profits in a few months.

These are megatrends for long-term investors to profit from.

So, the time to prepare for Sensex 100,000 is here, as long as you set your expectations right. The ride won't be smooth.

And the gains may no longer be concentrated in Sensex stocks.

Yes, you read that right.

Today, the markets may cheer Budget day gains in Sensex stocks.

But the underdogs, according to me, are the stocks beyond the Sensex.

Sound, solid, well managed businesses with tons of free cash could attract more investor interest in the days to come.

Sectors that have been side lined for years could be back in the spotlight.

Promising startups may fuel of the growth of companies that acquire them.

And the real Budget gains could be in the most underrated stocks over the years to come.

So, sit back and enjoy the gains.

But remember, act only when the time and valuations are right.
