Christopher Wood remains bullish on Indian markets despite run-up; prefers real-estate sector.

Jefferies’ Christopher Wood has maintained a bullish view on the Indian equities in 2021, not deterred by the Sensex’s bull run. The front line BSE index touched scaled the 50,000 mark for the first time ever on January 21, rising nearly 100 percent from its multi-year low, hit in March 2020, owing to the coronavirus-induced economic slowdown.
In this week’s GREED & fear report, Woods says the key reason for this surge is the scale of the cyclical recovery in the coming fiscal year post the dramatic collapse in growth in the Q2 of 2020 when the real gross domestic product (GDP) declined by 23.9 percent YoY in that quarter. For FY22, Wood sees real GDP rising by 13.2 percent YoY.
