The US being the largest economy, slowdown will definitely have an impact on the Indian economy

In 2008, look beyond Sensex when investing

The Year 2007 was one of the better years for investors in stock markets. Starting off from just 60 points shy of 14,000, the magical year saw the next peaks fall like ninepins. Doubling in value, the Indian bourses truly created wealth.

What about year 2008? Will it be different? Which sectors to bet on? “Look beyond the indices,” advises Mr Bhavesh Shah, Vice-President (Research) of Asit C Mehta, Mumbai.
“Investors should do their homework before investing in stock market, if they are taking investment decisions in the absence of any professional guidance,” he adds, in the course of an exclusive interaction with Business Line, over the e-mail. “Market efficiency will increase only when there are informed investors.”
