Investor patience is being put on test, as earnings misses, supposedly rich valuations and a sharp fall in technology stocks globally sent shares of a few new-age companies tumbling on Dalal Street. The sentiment is so fragile that four companies, namely One 97 Communications (Paytm), FSN E-Commerce (Nykaa), Zomato and PB Fintech (Policybazaar), who together commanded Rs 3.58 lakh crore in market value on Day 1 of their listings, have eroded Rs 1.30 lakh crore worth of investor wealth so far.

STOCK IN FOCUS: Hikal shares tumble as co receives notice to shut plant

There are some significant trends which have the potential to impact the market both negatively and positively. Globally inflation is becoming a major threat which will force the leading central banks to raise rates steeper-than-expected. The consequent capital outflows from emerging markets will negatively impact EMs including India.A divergent trend is that inflation in India is largely under control and consumer and business confidence is improving. The third wave of the pandemic didn’t have any significant adverse impact. Q3 results indicate smart pick up in the profitability of financials, IT, energy and metals and this trend is likely to continue with segments like autos joining the group of outperforming sectors. Therefore, even in the midst of global headwinds and FII selling there are opportunities for selective investment in performing sectors
