Nifty Projected To Reach 25,200 By December, Says ICICI Securities; Here Are Top 94 Stock Picks Across Sectors

(MENAFN- AsiaNet News) Nifty might reach 25,200 by December 2024, with robust support at the 22,200 level, considering the historical market trends during election years, according to brokerage firm ICICI Securities.

“As envisaged in Feb-24 report, Nifty sailed through election based volatility and approached our target of 23400, Post election outcome, as anxiety settles down, while reigniting expectations on reforms agenda, budgetary allocations and earnings, markets have once again resumed upward trajectory," said the firm in a note.

The brokerage firm added that since 1999, Nifty has typically risen by a median of 21% from post-election outcome lows to the end of the year in election years. Notably, these gains often include intermediate corrections of 4-6%, which present buying opportunities. Since June 2022, each 10% correction in the Nifty has been followed by a 20% rally over the next six months. Using a similar projection from the post-election low, they suggest a target of 25,200 by the end of December.

"Nifty continues on the path of our CY30 target of 50000, as part of Decadal cycle projection and we reiterate the structural bullish stance for CY30 as well as for CY24. Our composite model projects Nifty target of 25200 by December 2024, with strong support at 22200 levels," it added.

The current global scenario supports the hypothesis of an upward trend. Over the last five election years, US markets have typically surged by an average of 9% from June to December. A structural shift in domestic inflows has mitigated the impact of FII selling by providing market depth. Additionally, the anticipated return of FII flows in the second half of 2024, along with prospects of rate cuts in the US, would be a positive factor from a liquidity perspective, the firm added.
