Can Fin Homes has made a fairly strong move after moving in a narrow range for the last few days. We recommend a buy with a stop of Rs 2,480 and a target of Rs 2,600.
HDFC Bank in spite of Bank Nifty coming down didn’t correct and is making highs of the session that is a buy with a stop of Rs 1,430 target of Rs 1,465.
Dish TV has often been range bound between Rs 80 to about Rs 120. If you want to buy the stock, you have to buy closer to Rs 80. It is a utility stock and most utility stocks tend to move sideways, so nothing surprising about that.
