Sudarshan Sukhani of s2analytics.com told CNBC-TV18, "Who are looking to build positions may buy LIC Housing Finance. I understand that Nifty can go back to 5,000. I do not know but it is quite possible. That is the worst which could happen. One still have to start accumulating. It is a small base, the breakout from a base is imminent and for short-term trader there is more steam."
"All the banks and financials are now coming into foray, into that play. The other stocks are going to take a backseat. LIC Housing Finance is coming out of a formation of a trading range, buy it," he said.
