One can buy HDFC Bank, says Sudarshan Sukhani of s2analytics.com.
Sukhani told CNBC-TV18, "HDFC Bank is giving a sign of life after a choppy decline. It has made a bullish ascending triangle, broken out yesterday. So, yesterday it was an outperformer. Therefore, once HDFC Bank starts an outperformance that continues. It is a favourite for foreign institutional investors (FIIs), so there is some reason to feel that this sense of favouritism is going to persist. I think it is one of the better buying opportunities in the banking sector."
