Mark Mobius Is Looking at India's Swoosh Index and You Should Too

May 27, 2020

Last week, I wrote about the Swoosh index and promised that I will keep tracking it for you.

Guess what?

The latest to join me in my call for India's Swoosh Index for the Swoosh recovery is none other than Mark Mobius.

The ex-Franklin Templeton emerging markets fund manager is known for predicting the bull market since 2009. And back then, he was very keen on buying Indian stocks.

In his December 2009 note, Searching for Bargains in India, Mobius laid down the exact criteria he was looking for in Indian businesses. Needless to say, Mobius' fund did extremely well over the next few years.

What is ironical is that Mobius' concerns about Indian businesses, back then, were also very similar to what they are today. He wrote...

  • Given the large amount of liquidity in the market, we believe a correction in the market might surface in some areas further down the road if over-spending and over-leveraging go unchecked. Despite this, we find that there are still opportunities in the market, and we are making some strategic investments in Indian companies.

In 2020, Mobius believes that India is strategically well placed to exploit the big opportunity in manufacturing. Especially, given the void left after souring US-China trade relations. Mobius is particularly banking on the promised changes to labour laws in India.

But that's not all...

The recently offered production linked incentives to MNCs make India an attractive production outsourcing destination.

The recent agri reforms may lead to investments in value added exports.

Take India's food processing sector for instance. At US$ 500 bn in annual economic activity, this is the fifth-biggest industry in India by production, exports, and consumption. We are among the world leaders in producing milk, tea, coffee, wheat, rice, sugar, fruits, and vegetables. Yet, only one-tenth of produce is processed.

So, big investments in the sector over the years cannot be ruled out. The opportunity is huge.

So far, the government's focus has been on attracting investment into the electronics sector. Particularly, smartphone manufacturing. Think of the added capacities of Samsung and Apple in India.

But the competition with countries like Vietnam and Mexico is intense. We cannot let our guard down. We need to focus on a variety of electronics segments - consumer, industrial, medical, and military.

Mobius also agrees with me on the fact that pharma and IT could be amongst the biggest wealth creators in the next decade. Tech enabled businesses are bound to grow faster in a post Covid-19 world.

URGENT RELEASE: Vijay Bhambwani's #1 Investment of The Decade. Get Details NOW.

India's Swoosh index won't be made up of MNCs looking for an alternate base of production.

It will also include homegrown companies that change their business models for the new global supply chain.
