How Samvat 2077 Has Fared:

Last year, domestic stock markets had made a strong start with the benchmark indices BSE and Nifty closing at record highs in the special (one-hour) trading session to mark the beginning of Samvat 2077.

In Samvat 2077, both the indices gave phenomenal returns by surging as much as 40 per cent to record highs on the back of strong global liquidity, containment of Covid-19 cases, significant pickup in vaccination and sharp recovery in corporate earnings.

“With the economic cycle picking up, we expect the corporate earnings growth to revive as well. Markets have always moved in tandem with earnings growth. Although there would be ups and downs in-between, we expect the overall trend of the market to remain positive in Samvat 2078 as well,” Motilal Oswal – MD and CEO, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd said.
