Gopi Suvanam, Founder of Investworks told CNBC-TV18, "One may sell ITC because whatever news flow that we are seeing today is more favourable to banking and some other sectors. So, this could be a tactical position that we can enter into a short at this time and maybe unwind when it reaches around Rs 300 level."
