India could see a 20 percent correction

In terms of sectors, India’s consumption sector looks good but some valuations are high. Companies which provide services to the infrastructure sector look attractive. I am also bullish about the banking sector—both private and public. If Modi is serious about reforms, he will have to ensure that state banks operate like some private banks and fare even better.

But some Indian stock valuations are stretched by more than 50 percent. A 20 percent correction in India’s stock markets will not surprise me. But I am not going to sell; it is something I can live with.
