The Quality of Market Performance
The Economic Times - January 2002
It is corporate results time again, and stock market analysts are busy analysing the state of the markets - the markets that they spend their time worrying about and the markets that I spend my time worrying about. I used to wonder if there really was a connect between the two, a thought that was wonderfully captured in an Economic Times headline of a few years ago: "The Sensex is driven by neither sense nor sex"! However this is a new age, and I can't but help notice how much more involved and aware stock market analysts and fund managers are about what is happening in consumer markets.
