VIP Industries, ITC and CAN FIN HOMES Look Interesting for Medium Term Investment
Indian stock markets received the much-needed boost and the trigger that can help Indian companies in long term in form of corporate rate cut announced by Narendra Modi government. Investors are confident that the tax reduction will help companies report stronger earnings, making the stocks look cheaper in terms of P/E ratio. At the same time, it could boost the sentiment and many companies having cash, could raise their capital expenditure to improve their capacity. A weaker Indian currency will also help exports from India, once the established players have improved its capacity.
While Modi has been criticized by many economists for currency demonetization and bad implementation of GST, he certainly deserves support for the tax rate cut announced by his government to deal with economic slowdown in many sectors.
