MARKET STRATEGY Time to buy dividend yield stocks, says Centrum Broking As markets are somewhat under the weather, and as we are in the middle of fourth quarter of the financial year, Q4FY18, it’s good time to look at “Dividend” yielding stocks. In the current economy, where bank fixed deposits offer interest rates to the tune of 6-7%, there are stocks which are giving dividend yields similar to that. Further, the interest on bank fixed deposits is taxable whereas the dividend from equity is completely exempt from tax (except when the dividend income in a financial year exceeds Rs 1 million). In that context, post-tax dividend yields of some of the stocks is way higher than the post-tax interest yield on bank fixed deposits. So, investors can consider some of the high dividend yield stocks to bring in regular inflows.

Economy watch: Nomura on PMI numbers   The sudden dip in the services PMI back into contractionary territory is a negative surprise. The drop could be a data quirk – there have been many times in the past when the services PMI has fallen only to recover the following month. Or, it could reflect something more fundamental due to tighter lending standards (especially for trade financing) due to recent banking sector developments.    We currently expect the cyclical growth recovery to continue, including in services, and will wait for the March PMI data and other leading indicators for services to assess whether this is a blip or not
