2007: Year of the unknown!
It was yet another landmark year for the stock markets with the BSE Sensex gaining 48% YoY in 2006. With the dark clouds of inflation and high interest rates now gathering on the horizon, can we expect an encore in 2007?
Stock Market strategy | What we had recommended for 2006
 Review 2006. Preview 2007.

India Inc.: We are the world!
Perspective on select Indian companies that have emerged as global corporations.

Auto: Rough terrain ahead
In the face of intense competition, who will survive to the onslaught?

Software: Growing strength by strength...
While growth should be a given, productivity problems are likely to occupy centrestage!

Telecom: The rising!
Will consolidation ring in good times or will battle especially on rural turf get bloodier?

Banks: Retard after the rally
In the midst of liquidity and margin constraints, will the credit cycle turn in 2007?

Commodities: A mixed bag!
How long will the rise in prices continue? Will the growth sustain in 2007?

FMCG: Not really fast moving!
Will the biggies be able to steal the thunder from their nimble small peers in 2007?

Pharma: Towards a healthy future?
After underperforming for two straight years, will 2007 be just what the doctor ordered?

Mutual Funds: Good, Bad & Ugly!
2006 will be remembered for the run-ins between the regulator and the fund houses.

Assured return schemes: Lost and Found
