Sudarshan Sukhani, s2analytics.com is of the view that one should exit HPCL.
Sukhani told CNBC-TV18, "HPCL has run up from Rs 270 to Rs 330. I am assuming that whatever news will come has already been discounted if it is favourable. So a run up is not expected. We are talking about short-term. If it is unfavourable then the market can react quite adversely. If I trade, I always get out before the news. Ideally one should get out without a stop loss, one should just exit. If one wants a stop loss then for a short-term trader, the stop loss is Rs 318."
