Here’s what Mehul Kothari, of Anand Rathi Shares and Stock Brokers, recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
After some relief from the COVID cases, India started moving to regain normalcy. With the business looking up and the economy resuming activities, aviation giant IndiGo started flying high in the market.
The price action indicates that the stock has a potential to go towards Rs 2,800-3,000 in the coming months. Thus, traders and investors both should continue to hold the stock. On the downside, support lies at the Rs 2,000 mark.
The daily chart of Sheela Foam depicts that the stock had been consolidating in a broad range of Rs 2,500 to Rs 2,000 since the past 6-9 months. It recently managed to break out of this range and is now trading above Rs 3,000.
We feel that the stock has some more fume left on the upside and hence traders and investors should continue to hold it. Downside support is at Rs 2,500.
The line chart of Tech Mahindra construes that the stock is in a strong uptrend and investors should continue to hold it in their portfolio.
However, traders can stay long until the rising trend line remains intact. It means that strong support is placed at Rs 1,370. The trend would change only on a breach of the mentioned level. On the upside, the stock has the potential to test Rs 1,700-Rs 1,800 levels.
ICICI Prudential Life Insurance
The stock has confirmed a range breakout above Rs 540 during the month of May 2021. The theoretical target of the breakout comes around Rs 800.
The stock has turned from the rising trend line support as displayed on the chart. Thus we are of the opinion that the stock might be heading towards Rs 800 mark and, therefore, traders and investors should hold it for long. The stop loss for both the positions could be the recent low of Rs 600.
