Advice to Investors
“The market has suddenly gained momentum. But I think there are still some such stocks in the market, which can give good returns in the next six to nine months.”
Which Sectors Should Investors Focus on?
“Investments can be made in private sector banks. Larger private sector banks have been in good in terms of performance, loan growth and asset quality. Apart from this, you can also focus on select FMCG stocks. Income can be made in these sectors.”
What Caused This Boom?
“There are some important issues behind the stock market boom, such as the slowdown in the Indian economy, US-China talks and Brexit-related matters.

Which Banks Should One Invest in – Private Banks or PSUs?
“The private sector is considered a safe space because the growth is in this sector only. Therefore, the market would like to go with the private sector as compared to the public sector.

Yes Bank (24.03 per cent), SBI (7.69 per cent), Infosys (3.79 per cent), Tata Motors (3.40 per cent) and Bharti Airtel (1.67 per cent) were the top gainers.
