In an interview with, Mowat said that he expected earnings growth to pick up in the latter part of the new financial year and advised investors to play the expected pick-up in infrastructure indirectly through building-materials companies.

“The government is making progress in tackling issues. The passage of the insurance bill, as well as the progress in GST and on other technical issues [related to the power sector] will bode well,” he said.

A careful stock-picking approach with focus on high-quality cyclical companies and banks should fetch investors about 20 percent returns ahead, Mowat added.
