Morgan Stanley shifts focus: India gains, China restrained; Taiwan also downgraded amid tech surge
Morgan Stanley has downgraded its rating on Chinese stocks to ‘equal weight’ as the recent rally fueled by government stimulus promises an opportunity for investors to take profits. In contrast, the firm believes that India’s macro indicators remain robust, and its economy is on track to achieve the forecasted 6.2% GDP growth. India’s ability to leverage multipolar world dynamics is seen as a significant advantage, prompting Morgan Stanley to elevate India’s position in their process.

Furthermore, market sentiment is shifting to focus on China’s structural challenges, including local government issues and unemployment, without clear solutions.
