We have collated views of experts on what investors should do when the market resumes trading on January 27:
Expert: Vikas Jain, Senior Research Analyst at Reliance Securities
Grasim Industries: HOLD | Target: 1200
The stock scaled a new 52-week high outperforming the broader markets on the back of positive news flow. The setup and structure continue to remain positive with strong volumes and expect to outperform further from current levels.
Any decline near to its short-term average of 1000-1020 levels would be a good opportunity to add longs.
Century Ply: HOLD | Target: 305
The stock has given a strong breakout last month from its 200-week average. Recent price action is very swift and sharp so one can expect a minor pullback towards Rs 245 levels.
On the higher side, we expect a target of 305 over the next few months
Bajaj Auto: BOOK PROFITS
The stock has witnessed a vertical up move post its breakout at 3200 levels and moved up 21 percent month-to-date (MTD).
RSI is trending near the higher band so we expect a price and time correction. We would recommend to book profit at current levels.Disclaimer
