Indian stock gives a bare outlook: Nomura group
The brokerage’s sets new 12-month target on India’s benchmark index at 17,000 points, with 5-10 per cent downside risk in the near term.
Nomura’s target implies a 1.8 per cent fall from Monday’s Sensex closing level of 17,318.81 points.
Nomura’s sector allocation has become more defensive, with underweight calls on banks, real estate, and telecoms, report says.
Bank is overweight on the oil & gas and metals, and also overweight on consumers despite valuation concerns, to reflect defensive stance.
