The current equity markets in India are significantly down due to major Foreign investors' outflow. FPI outflow in May stood at Rs. 6400 which is a significant fall in the stock markets. The recent interest rate hike by the US Federal Reserve and the UK central bank has triggered this major FPI outflow. Additionally, the RBI has also raised its key lending rate, the repo rate. These are making the government bonds more profitable. So, with a falling stock market and falling Sensex, it is a good time for investors to buy stocks. ICICI Direct has recently recommended these three stocks to invest in for good returns in the long term.
The brokerage firm has recommended these three below-mentioned stocks for investment. Siemens Ltd., Ramco Cement, and Granules are three preferred stocks by the brokerage firm.
