“We believe that the most severe of the FPIs outflows is past us, as the steady economic growth and earnings growth will be evident through the remainder of 2022. The market will be influenced by macroeconomic variables such as the direction that the Dollar Index is heading and bond yields, the growth of inflation, the direction of inflation in the industrialized world, and trends in commodity prices,” said a strategy note from Axis Securities.
It has set the goal of 18,400 Nifty shares for March 2023. It is valued with a 20x valuation of FY24’s earnings, compared to 22x previously, suggesting an increase of 6.5 percent over current levels. “We have reduced down the Nifty multiple to account for the rising interest rate outlook.

A simple mean reversion may cause a massive pullback,” the brokerage warned in a recent announcement.

We believe that the profit margins will shift away from commodity producers and towards commodity consumers in the coming years,” the brokerage said.
