IT stocks had been an all time favorite investment for many investors for a long time as it had the potential to yield high returns. However, recently stocks have plunged on account of a host of reasons. The recent fall in the rupee has given new hope to stocks from the sector. Take a look whether it is time to buy these stocks.

How the index has fared?

In February 2009, the Index was trading at approximately 2,000 levels. Till December 2010, it had rallied almost 275 per cent to trade at 7,500 level. In 2011, the Index corrected and slipped by almost 33 per cent to 5,000 level. Then again, in March 2015, the Index pulled itself together and rallied 150 per cent to make the high of 12,800 points. Thereafter, the correction followed again, bringing the Index down to the low of 9,300 points, declining 27 per cent in November 2016.

Decline after Trump election

The recent correction has been due to two main reasons; slowing growth and the election of Donald Trump as US President. Most IT companies have reduced their revenue guidance for the upcoming quarter. The sector sunk further into uncertainty as the Republican candidate Donald Trump was elected as the new president of the US. The country accounts for around 60% of India's software exports. During his campaign, Trump had constantly spoken against IT outsourcing and immigration. He even talked about Indian companies such as Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and HCL Technologies. Trump is supposed to began his reign from 20th January and the scenario for the Index will get a clearer picture then.

Fresh breakout

However, the IT Index gave a breakout of a three week high of 10,110 points with the next target of 10,448 points. This makes the space attractive for investors and hence it is suggested to keep an eye on this Index which can be a wealth creator in coming days.
