the Sohn India Conference

I dont know he is able to anticipate the correction at the Conference

The seventh speaker was S Naganath of DSP Blackrock:

He first gave his view on global markets..said by Sept/Oct he expects them to have a significant correction of atleast 20%
He said even Indian markets will get impacted by this…this would offer the “last opportunity to buy Indian Equities Cheap”
His sectoral pick was PSU Banks.He said everyone hates them now but they should do well from a 3 year perspective
Then he explained an idea he had called “TRICEPS”-Tax Rate Insurance for Creating Employment in Public Services
As per this idea,Govt collects premium from individuals/corporates and promises not to raises taxes.It then uses the money to create jobs
I found this idea bizarre and envy Naganath for the seriously awesome stuff that he must be smoking to think of such crap
