Sensex in 2025 - RIL, ONGC, SBI, BHEL, L&T could exit?

No comments:
Index heavyweights stocks like Reliance Industries (RIL), ONGC, Larsen & Toubro (L&T), State Bank of India (SBI) and BHEL are among 15 stocks that could see an exit from S&P BSE Sensex over the next decade -  That's what seems to be the case according a research by Ambit Capital.

The report predicts the pace of churn in the 30-share index's constituents to gather momentum.  According to Ambit's analysis, Sensex's churns over a 10-year window from 1986 to date shows that the churn ratio of the Sensex tends to rise when the economy is undergoing irreversible structural changes.

Over the next decade, the report predicts the pace of churn in the 30-share index's constituents to gather momentum. The current economic-political environment, Ambit says, will usher in an era of change which will drive Sensex churn higher driven by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's resets to the Indian economy.

Then what could be the stocks replacing them? - The new entrants could include Flipkart, Paytm, Cafe Coffee Day and ICICI Prudential Life Insurance. Well, it seems an interesting analysis. Such changes in indices re-emphasize on investing in Index Funds or Index ETFs like Nifty Bees.

The Impact in India of Including China-A Shares in the MSCI Index

No comments:
A country’s classification in MSCI can have significant impact on the equity markets of that country, as it can drive large flows in or out of the country by passive asset managers. Index funds, exchange traded funds, mutual funds , pension funds and sovereign wealth funds that have assets under management passively tracking an MSCI benchmark would have to buy constituents of a country that is included in their benchmark or sell constituents of a country that is deleted from their benchmark.

Currently, India's current weightage is 7.49 percent and China’s is 24.88 percent in the MSCI Emerging Market index. Post the inclusion of China-A shares in the MSCI Index, India's weight may reduce to 7.13 percent while China may stand at 28.51 percent in the index.  It is estimated, India may see selling worth USD 3.8 billion and exchange traded fund ( ETF )-related selling worth USD 0.9 billion as India's weightage in the index could reduce as a result.

But the US index provider MSCI's  has delayed the decision to include Chinese 'A' shares in its emerging market index, thereby boosting the prospects of more foreign fund inflows into the Indian markets, going ahead. This decision could provide a short term advantage to Indian markets, but the Indian shares could come under pressure once MSCI takes the decision to include China A-shares in its emerging index in the near future.
