The focus next year will be on ensuring that the process of solution is on the right track.

Disappointed stock market bulls find comfort in India profit revival In India, it’s becoming a ritual. Each year investors are assured that earnings are about to recover. Each year, they don’t. Anything that suggested that might change would be welcome news to stock bulls, who’ve watched last year’s rally hit a wall. Now there’s evidence it may, though you have to look pretty hard to see it. READ MORE

Jefferies on Eicher Rating  BUY (from   HOLD) Price Target Rs 31,880.00 (from Rs 31,271.00)   Eicher is in a transition phase with the waiting period going away for the first time in years. Reported growth is normalizing as it starts reflecting current demand vs. pent up demand. The stock has de-rated/underperformed over the last six months as a result. However, with underlying industry growth surprising positively and strong growth in low penetration states, which now account for 30% of sales, we expect the transition to be smoother
