Binod Modi, Head - Strategy at Reliance Securities, said, going forward, with the opening up of the economy at the state level, government’s higher allocation towards capital expenditures for FY22 should be helpful in driving economic growth in the coming quarters. Additionally, various industries have also announced higher capex programmes to sustain growth, which should also aid economic recovery.

“While domestic equites continue to look good, investors must focus on quality stocks with robust earnings visibility and margins of safety. In our view, sectors considered to be major beneficiaries of capex revival are likely to be back in focus in the coming weeks,” he added.

According to Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities, the Nifty/Sensex fell to 15,565/51,717 in a short span of time.
