Most major global indices were under pressure during August with Chinese indices among the worst performing indices. Hang Seng and Shenzhen were down 8 per cent and 6.5 per cent respectively. S&P500 was down 1.6 per centt while Nifty50 was down 2.5 per cent. With this correction, now the one year forward PE multiple for Nifty50 is in line with its 5y average, which implies a fair valuation. Nfty50, up 6.3 per cent YTD, has lagged the double-digit returns of other major indices.

Mid & small caps maintained momentum but most sectoral indices in red. Nifty mid & small cap indices were up -4 per cent during August. Nifty IT had a 3 per cent recovery indicating bottoming out of the sector. Pharma sector also had a modest recovery given expectation of a milder pricing pressure in generic medicines in USA. That said, weakening INR also played part in the two sectors' recovery. Most other major sectors had negative return over the month though. Mid & Small cap funds continue to see disproportionately higher inflow which has created its own cycle of outperformance and resultant inflow, the report said.
