Shardul Kulkarni of Angel Broking is of the view that, one can buy NHPC on decline with a stop loss of Rs 24.7 for the target price of Rs 26.
Kulkarni told CNBC-TV18, "NHPC has been in a strong higher top-higher bottom cycle. The stock moved from Rs 70 to Rs 26 and it is still possible that the stock can move towards Rs 27.5 to Rs 28. So I would look at buying into this decline which is overall Rs 26-24.8. Place a stop loss just below the previous low, which is around Rs 24.7 and one can go long at current prices. I would look at a potential target of Rs 26 at least over the next four-six trading sessions in case of NHPC."
