Bernstein said, “This year's returns would likely stay at high single digits, with a possibility to remain low only in case of a frantic policy shift."

Global brokerage firm Bernstein predicted high single-digit or low double-digit returns for Nifty in 2024 if BJP wins more than 290 seats in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. The brokerage said that there is a high probability of BJP winning 330-350 seats, adding, “We expect a short-term rally either leading into elections or the week after results potentially breach our 23K Nifty target and then a profit booking as the reality of execution and valuations emerge. In our view, sectors that will lead are Infra, manufacturing, domestic cyclical, a bit of financials, and state-owned enterprises (PSUs) in general. Consumer and IT will lag. Small and midcaps may do better than largecaps for a few days.”

It added, “Continuity of power was known to equity markets, which is why we had a rally in Nov/Dec last year - playing again and again on the same theme leads to absurd outcomes for valuations - hence, we believe the focus will eventually return to macro, earnings growth, reasonability of valuations etc. The overanalysis brd self-induced stress the markets have seen over the past month is the only reason for the relief rally we call for.”
