Buy Hindustan Unilever, says Sudarshan Sukhani of s2analytics.com.
Sukhani told CNBC-TV18, "I have been thinking Hindustan Unilever is going to stem its fall and start going up, so for me it is difficult to get a number on the downside. I have been wrong on that. Even now I would be a buyer here because Hindustan Unilever (HUL) and ITC are stocks that have to participate in any meaningful Nifty rally. I would be afraid of going short.”
