Top 6 Stocks That Remain Strong Picks For The Festive Season. Here’s Why

The season of festivals has officially begun, with Ganesh Chaturthi being the most recent. Numerous holidays, including Karva Chauth, Navratri, Diwali, and Christmas, will be celebrated in the approaching months.

The demand for consumer goods is often high during these holidays. Currently, a number of catalysts have rekindled the passion surrounding these festivals. Having said that, you have the option of adding a list of six equities to your portfolio. Axis Securities‘ festive demand picks include these stocks.

StocksAxis Securities stated earlier this week in research that festivals are times that “bring life to a state of enthusiasm, creating mental space and good vibes among all of us and making the whole climate favourable for the demand generation, particularly for the consumer products in the economy.”

After two years of muted due to periodic Covid-19 disruptions, the festive spirit is back to pre-Covid levels. The government of India’s extensive immunization push (which reached the astonishing milestone of 213 Cr by 4th Sep’22) appears to have reignited the excitement this year, and economic activity is gaining steam, according to the study.

Axis Securities claims that a number of catalysts are bringing up a fresh sense of exhilaration. Which are:

  1. The incredible resiliency of the Indian economy in FY23 to date, with an improvement shown in most high-frequency indicators.
  2. The incredible resiliency of the Indian economy in FY23 to date, with an improvement shown in most high-frequency indicators.
  3. As normal monsoons are restoring faith in demand recovery in rural India, improvements in urban demand are on the verge of improving rural demand, as well.
  4. After COVID, the contact-intensive services industry fully operational areas, such as travel and tourism, hotels, schools, and colleges 3.0. Additionally, all modes of public transportation, including buses, trains, and the air, are currently fully functioning, facilitating a quick and durable recovery in economic activity.
  5. With the recovery in the services sectors, remittances—one of the main sources of income in rural areas—will probably reach their pre-Covid levels.
  6. Improvements in commodity pricing and supply chain conditions offer a respite from excessive inflation. In this situation, the market narrative has changed from one of concern over inflation to one of cooling inflation expectations in the upcoming quarters.

Axis Securities’ statement stated, “Based on the above-mentioned themes, “We suggest the following equities because they will profit from strong festival demand: Maruti, Trent, Relaxo, SBI Cards, Bajaj Finance, and V-Mart.”

These six equities are thought to build wealth over the long run. The time horizon for these equities at Axis Securities is six to nine months.

In the holiday season, Axis Securities recommends these six equities as outstanding picks:
