After the hatric win of BJP healthcare and rural areas are regaining prominence
Sector-wise, we observe that equities with a focus on healthcare and rural areas are regaining prominence as a result of the BJP’s more focused and clinical scheme implementation. The victory should boost the performance of oil marketing companies (OMC) equities by lowering expectations of a fuel price reduction at the retail level. Even as the private sector takes a wait-and-watch stance, momentum for new ordering activity is decreasing as attention shifts to election preparation and related spending. For capital goods and infrastructure companies, we see a deterioration of the order inflow pace until at least Q2FY25.
