It will also attract more investors to the market. “If the actual results are close to exit polls, we may see a revival in domestic and foreign investor sentiment towards Indian equities,” said Devang Mehta, head of equity advisory at Centrum Wealth Management.

Market analyst Sandip Sabharwal also says the exit poll results will help Indian markets decouple from global cues in the near term. He remains positive on auto, infra, capital goods and banking stocks, if a stable government is formed.

The midcap and smallcap stocks that have underperformed this year could start to outperform, said Sanjiv Bhasin, EVP for markets and corporate affairs at IIFL. He remains positive on PSU stocks.
