After a big jump in pre-morning and post pre-open trading in Infosys, the scrip is registering ‘voters’ for the big positive result tomorrow. That it happens is the hope the rally prospects are living on as investors settle for the stable India an Asian investors nod into the markets after the heady May-September trades finally settled the issue of India being unique with a 25% depreciation of currency that has thence lost almost half its value in depreciation.
The Rupee will thus finally head to pre-60 levels and the Janet Yellen trade may push the markets further into rosy cheer, before a forced taper does tick in as Janet Yellen may still prove in a surprise for the markets. Yet, the news of the taper is fading away and US could remain overlevered to shelter its overlevered households and keep the consumption ticker running as inflation remains intuitively positive to growth. That could serve as example to India down the road though the comparison is still too wide off the mark except for specificities India shares with everyone (as usual)
Even as the Rupee moves back into stride, expected tomorrow an EBIT improvement at Infy and an expansion in guidance/rater as guidance has already been updated multiple times, a discouragement to those positing further muted guidance may still be required
The Bennett Coleman machine TOI mentions IIMs (and IITs, probably) are facing employment pressures again , sneakily close to reports of net employment increases back at the IT offspring of India including Wipro, HCL and the MNC offices seeded here after a long success rate of the earlier growth phase. Accenture did break trend to show jump in consulting more than outsourcing revenue this time but outsourcing trends have been showing up everyone else again, seemingly the only strategy outside server management that has a direct proven impact on global profits
Yields jumped down still refusing to, but picking up real demand (hopefully) as the Rupee criss-crosses between 61.5 and 62.5 at an unnoticed fury of changing positional trades. The trades, still in ITC, Bharti, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, IDFC and probably YES as YES slides into 340-350 levels again for the results season starting tomorrow.
As noted, EMs like India, without the IT story per se are ready to take the year to a positive close esp. as the worst India could do is 4% growth
