Dr. VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services, said, “Holding cash would be a good strategy in this uncertain time. The cash component in the portfolio may be increased as a measure of caution. Also, this will enable investors to buy when there is a big dip in the market, and it is important to note that big dips can happen since valuations are high. Paints, tyres, and aviation stocks will be under pressure from the rising crude. HDFC Bank Ltd. results today will be keenly watched by the market.”
