Practitioners’ Insight: Information Technology Sector

The information technology (IT) sector is currently one of the most popular yield plays in Indian financial markets. Asset light business models, relatively high return ratios, good managements, and decent corporate governance practices make it a favorite of investors. However, a lack of adequate data, frequent changes in technology trends, and its dependence on the global macroeconomic environment makes the forecasting process for this sector relatively challenging. In this webinar, Sudheer Guntupalli, technology analyst at Ambit Capital, will share his insights on how different drivers of the IT sector can be modeled. In addition, he will also highlights the basic accounting and pilferage checks that can be carried out by an analyst to identify potential red flags within reported financials of a company.

However, when it comes to equity investing, there exists the “Hubble Telescope problem.” Curtis Jensen, the former Chief Investment Officer of Third Avenue Management, reportedly said, "DCF to us is sort of like the Hubble Telescope—you turn it a fraction of an inch and you're in different galaxy." Any small changes in growth estimates, cost of capital, and terminal growth rates in a DCF calculation can result in wildly different outcomes.
