Infrastructure Stocks in India

Infrastructure is the backbone of the global economy. With a steadily rising population, the economy needs a massive amount of spending on constructing new infrastructure and rebuilding the aging assets to meet the needs.

After a long-long time, the tide is turning for infrastructure stocks. There's massive capex lined up for infrastructure sector backed by government's announcements on the production linked incentive (PLI) schemes.

Global supply chains are shifting away from China and India is a key beneficiary of this trend.

An important thing here is that the benefits of the capex cycle will not be limited to infra sector. Think of the additional cement and steel required to build roads, highways, hospitals, and buildings.

Infrastructure stocks are usually risker as their fortunes are prone to economic booms and busts and for this reason, they are often called cyclical stocks. Generally considered an offensive tactic in investing, cyclical stocks can be used to generate high returns when the economy is doing well.

Therefore, the best time to buy infrastructure stocks is at the start of an economic expansion and the best time to sell them is just before the economy begins to slow down.

However, before selecting a stock, one must check whether the industry is due for revival or not.

For more details, check out our infra sector report.
