Sudarshan Sukhani of s2analytics.com is of the view that one can buy Hindustan Unilever (HUL) for short-term.
Sukhani told CNBC-TV18, "For HUL at Rs 450-460 there is very strong support. Now it may or may not work out but if it does for a short-term trader and assuming that the Nifty is to be managed on the upside even for a few points, HUL could be a very decent participant because technically it is unlikely to crack below this support in a hurry. So, it is a buying opportunity for a short-term trader.”
