India can be considered as β€œbalanced” in terms of investment and consumption with savings rate of 35% and consumption of 65% of its GDP.

πŸ™‚

The fastest growing China leans towards investment, whereas most of the western countries are weighted more towards consumption.

πŸ™‚

European economies like France and Germany continued their gradual emergence from the worst crisis in decades and company results showed an upturn.

4. Concerns Over Weak Monsoon!

Everyone is expecting that poor rains would push up food prices in the short-term, due to the reduced yield of kharif crop and it would add to inflationary pressures.

😦

But at the same time, we should also know that Indian agriculture is not limited to agro commodities only, but it is well diversified into horticulture, livestock and fisheries and their share in total output of the agricultural sector is increasing.

πŸ™‚

Total agricultural output accounts for only 18.5 % of the gross domestic product and the kharif crops like cereals, pulses and oilseeds account for only 20% of it.

Moreover, government spending in rural areas will mitigate the effect of diminished monsoon rains.

So, Looking at the above factors, India growth story remains strong in the long run.

πŸ™‚

So, one can go for the companies, which will benefit from β€œEconomic growth” like power plants, roads, service providers like banking and engineering sector.
