We have collated views of experts on what investors should do when the market resumes trading on January 19:
Vikas Jain, Senior Research Analyst at Reliance Securities
Max Healthcare: HOLD | Target: Rs 180
The stock is scaling new highs over the past few days and it will continue to outperform. RSI is trading above 60 levels and still does not showing any negative divergence.
Any decline near to its short-term average of Rs 148-150 levels would be a good opportunity to add longs.
SAIL: Book Profits
The stock is one of the best outperformers in the metals space as it doubled over the last quarter. The recent FPO came at a discount which resisted the up move and we expect the stock to witness minor corrective action.
Any breakdown from its short-term averages will confirm the downtrend, and the stock will test Rs 56-58 levels over the next few weeks.
Tata Motors: Book Profits
The stock has witnessed a trend reversal on the daily charts after a sharp up move from Rs 160 to 265 over the past month.
RSI has also reversed from higher levels and we expect the stock to underperform and witness price and time correction. We would recommend booking profit from current levels.Disclaimer: The views and investment tips expressed by experts on Moneycontrol.com are their own and not those of the website or its management.
