MARKET COMMENT Ridham Desai, head of India research and India equity strategist at Morgan Stanley India's relative growth is likely to accelerate in the coming months. The recent RBI policy meeting has convinced the market that a rate hike is not around the corner. Therefore, we think that the relationship between India's short rate differential with the US and equity market performance relative to the world will likely be reestablished (falling relative rates = outperformance). The third factor is the collapse in India's beta to a 13-year low. While fundamentally this means that India's prospective absolute returns have shrunk, if beta remains low and the world is in a low-return phase, India will likely outperform. Finally, FPI positioning, which has been falling for three years, is now at 2011 levels. Ridham Desai
