Avoid Petronet LNG, says Sudarshan Sukhani of s2analytics.com.
Sukhani told CNBC-TV18, "So many midcaps are disappointing. Petronet LNG is not just yesterday; it broke support levels earlier, which should have held. It was a wonderful stock to be on the long side and it has been continuously falling down. So, either a short or avoid. There is no way we can buy it."
