Indian equity markets led by Modi stocks had approached the national elections with a lot of conviction in the continuity of a strong BJP government, said CLSA in a note, adding that the election verdict of the BJP lacking a simple majority, questions this conviction and raises doubts over a stable government and policy-making styles.

The brokerage cautioned about the expensive valuations of the stocks which position India as one of the most expensive markets globally, with its premium to Asia, Ex-Japan and EM peers exceeding one standard deviation above the historical average, LiveMint reported.

CLSA also removed L&T, from its India focus portfolio, replacing it with HCL Tech. The infrastructure giant had been in the portfolio since its inception in January 2021.
