Nifty PSE has outperformed Nifty 50 in every period in the last one year.

The last couple of weeks have not been very kind to the equity market especially the frontline equity indices. Nevertheless, PSU stocks and indices have been outperforming the market. And this outperformance is not limited to the last couple of weeks. Nifty PSE, an index that comprises 20 stocks that are listed on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) where 51% of company's outstanding share capital is held by the Central Government and/or State Government, directly or indirectly, has generated a return of 46% while Nifty 50 in the same period has given a return of 28.14%. Even month to date Nifty PSE has outperformed Nifty 50. The reason for such outperformance is the re-rating of PSU stocks owing to some assertive steps by the government such as the sale of Air India to Tata Group, which is a positive trigger for PSU stocks. Such privatization helps to unlock huge potential opportunities for stocks.
