Goldman Sachs upgrades India to 'overweight'
MUMBAI (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs raised India to 'overweight' from 'market-weight', citing growth recovery and inflation moderation ahead.
The investment bank pegged December 2013 Nifty target at 6,600 points.
"Reform initiatives and changes in government leadership this fall have created a sense of optimism among the domestic investor base for the first time in over a year, and the risk of policy missteps in 2013 has been lowered," said Goldman Sachs in a report.
The investment bank added that MSCI India's valuation was well below the 5-year average of 14.9 times, affording an attractive entry point into one of the stronger structural growth markets in the region.
