One bout of torrential rainfall and our infrastructure comes to a stand-still.
What are we, really?
Is India a golden investment?
Not with the current state of governance.
Is India an investment?
Yes, but only at single-digit price to earnings ratios.
Because while investing in India, one needs to factor in very bad governance, terrorism, and fragile infrastructure. That’s why the margin of safety required is huge.
Is India a good trade?
Because of the pull and push between the shining private sector versus the apathetic government sector. This contrast causes big moves, both up and down. Ideal for trading.
So how should one play India?
Again, up to you. Invest in it at single digit PEs. Cash out when PEs hit the early 20s. Or, just sheer trade it. Suit yourself.
