Ban vs regulation
Deepak Shenoy, founder and CEO of Capital Mind, also came out in support of cryptocurrency, saying it is a useful asset class. “I don’t support an outright ban on bitcoin in India, but I believe it’s inevitable that it gets substantially more regulated. It’s going to be impossible as a currency even if some people want to try, but it’s a useful asset class.”

Isn’t renting better?
Radhika Gupta, MD and CEO, Edelweiss Asset Management, questioned the financial logic of buying a house. “If you think investing is only logical, and not emotional, think about real estate ownership. Any rental yield math tells you buying in a big city makes no sense, but falls flat in front of the need to have a roof over the head.”

It’s all in the mind
Ravi Dharamshi of ValueQuest Investment Advisors shared some tips on behavioural investing to help you navigate the ups and downs of market. “If you got bearish looking at valuations or extent of rally or lack of stimulus from govt at any point last year then it is virtually impossible for you to turn bullish now.

Time to sell FMCG?
Independent market expert Sandip Sabharwal has turned bearish on consumption stocks. “Consumption stocks could be most impacted as rising inflation across the board impacts disposable incomes. Just the rise in petrol and diesel over the last 4 months takes away ~ Rs 250,000 crore. They are also very richly valued and priced for perfection. Better opportunities elsewhere,” he said.
