Stocks to buy: Honasa Consumer, Senco Gold among 5 midcap, smallcap stock picks

Indian stock market traded higher on Tuesday, with the frontline indices Sensex and Nifty 50 tad below their record high levels. The gains were led by banking, financial services and IT stocks.

Foreign Investors are optimistic on Indian markets from a medium-term perspective but are cautious after the surprisingly strong post-election rally, according to analysts at Emkay Global Financial Services.

Industrials is the favorite sector but there is some traction in Autos and Banks. Staples attract the least interest, and there is some momentum in Technology names, the brokerage firm said.

It sees little near-term upside in Nifty from the current levels because of elevated valuations and lack of positive catalysts. 

“This is, however, a pause in a multi-year bull run, and we see very little chance of a meaningful correction. We are constructive on the manufacturing / investment cycle and prefer playing it through Durables (Auto) and Materials. However, we also see counter-intuitive opportunities in FMCG and Tech on relative valuations and earnings recovery. Industrials and Financials are better played through select SMIDs, in our view,” said Seshadri Sen, Head Of Research And Strategist at Emkay Global Financial Services.
