Recent vaccination rise may ease pandemic risks in Asia: Fitch
The recent acceleration of vaccinations in parts of Asia could reduce the risk of setbacks to economic recoveries and public finances associated with further waves of the Covid-19 pandemic, provided that it is sustained, says Fitch Ratings.
Gainers and losers on the BSE Sensex:
Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services:
After the recent run-up, Nifty now trades at rich valuations. Thus any negative surprise or misses in the June quarter earnings could act as a dampener. However, the overall structure of the market remains positive as the second COVID wave has now started to recede, with the number of active COVID cases down >50% since its peak in early May to sub-18 lakhs now. There is greater visibility on vaccine supply now v/s April’21 and May’21. The expeditious containment of active COVID-19 cases and accelerated pace of vaccinations would boost and provide confidence in economic growth recovery in FY22E. As states ease restrictions gradually in Jun’21, we expect the demand environment to get better. Technically too, Nifty remain in positive set up and can see move towards highs of 16000 zones.
