Indian equities were clearly an outperformer compared to most global peers in CY23, more in mid and large-cap space. Interestingly, this
was amidst geopolitical tensions, a rise in key policy rates across the globe and volatile commodity prices.
The domestic economy, nonetheless, was resilient all across this time frame with a revival in the private capex cycle, robust infrastructure spending by the government,
record GST collection & most importantly margin expansion led to healthy high double-digit corporate earnings growth.
Nifty fair value pegged at 25000
Corporate earnings recovery has been healthy in the recent past
with Nifty earnings growing at 22% CAGR over FY20-23. Going
forward, introducing FY26E, we expect Nifty earnings to grow at a
CAGR of 16.3% over FY23-26E.
Our Dec 2024 target for Nifty is set at 25,000 wherein we have
valued Nifty at 20x PE on FY26E EPS of ₹1,250/share with
corresponding Sensex target set as 83,250; offering a potential
upside of ~15% from current index levels
Why we remain Bullish?

Indian indices have given significantly higher returns than the rest.
