Sensex target and its range

Many FIIs and research institutions continue to give their views and opinions on our markets and their take on India inc's fundamentals.Here is one more such view by a leading institution Credit Suisse.

Credit Suisse expects the Sensex to repeatedly touch both extremes of the 13,000-16,000 band in the next six months. At each extreme, are advised to prepare portfolios for a market move to the other. Some of the key negatives that are factored in - soon to stabilise inflation, a peaking monetary tightening cycle, diminished earnings expectations and stable global commodity prices.

In the last eight months, the Sensex has done more of a "yo-yo" than in any full year since 1995 There have been 13 rally and reversal episodes this year so far - the highest in any year since 1995. 1998 and 2000 had 12 such episodes. There have been six rallies and seven reversals so far this year, with the Sensex moving by at least 7%.

Long-term investors should wait for more data before increasing exposure significantly. Expectations of rate declines or current valuation levels are not enough to lift the market. Given local political risks, rising credit quality concerns and dependence on global risk aversion, the market could break down rather than up. Positively, almost all valuation charts have reached their best point since 2006.

Short-term investors should play frequent rallies and reversals by adjusting financial/industrial versus pharmaceuticals/staples. All historically successful quantitative investment strategies have stopped working in this environment. Rather, financials have emerged as one of the top-two outperforming sectors in every rally since February, and one of the top-two underperforming sectors in every reversal. Industrials are not far behind financials as high beta performers in every market half-cycles.

Lastly, valuations would be proven cheap enough only when growth returns back to India Inc.

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers.

Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:

Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.
