Nikhil Gupta: Should we still buy Bank Nifty given that it is breaking down a lot? What your view on Aurobindo Pharma ? It has been underperforming its peers recently.

Hemendra Pradhan: What is your call on HPCL ?

Mehta: We would feel more comfortable staying with the upstream companies like ONGC and Oil India .

Victor Preson: Will Nifty will reach 6500 by the end of this year?

Mehta: There is a possibility.

Mehta: We like Hind Zinc & BHEL for long term. On a valuation standpoint, both stocks seem under valued & will offer decent upside in the long term.

Chandrayee Sarkar: Is it right time to invest in L&T ?

Mehta: Yes, it is the right time to accumulate L&T. The stock trades at P/E and EV/EBIDTA of 15 times and 10 times discounting its FY14E numbers. To its credit, it has turned in a robust performance in the first 9 months of FY13 and is on track to meet its guidance on the revenue and order-booking fronts.

Mehta: We do not cover the stocks, some NBFC’s like REC, LIC Housing Finance , M&M Financial offer very good valuation support & substantial upside for long term.

Apoorv Mehta: What is your opinion about State Bank of India (SBI)?

Mehta: We prefer PNB in the large cap PSU Banking Space. PNB has traded at a 20% discount to SBI  in the past vs an attractive ~40% now, Just on an expected RoE improvement, valuations merit a re-rating vs 0.96x PABV currently (target 1.1x PABV), maintain BUY for ~20% upside

Jani Mayur: What is your view on SKS Microfinance ? Is it a buy?

Mehta: We do not track SKS Microfinance. We prefer companies like M&M Financial , REC .
