Here's what Gaurav Sharma of Globe Capital Markets, recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
The stock recovered sharply on December 15 after trading with a negative bias for over a month. The up move started around its 50-EMA (exponential moving average) levels, with is a positive sign.
Considering its daily chart, we firmly believe that sustenance above Rs 700-mark is the key for further up move towards its 52-week high. Short-term traders are advised to go long above Rs 700, keeping stop loss below Rs 660 for a target close to Rs 800.
It is well placed on its short as well as long term charts, hitting higher highs from past two trading sessions and is now trading at its all-time highs in weak market conditions. This clearly indicates outperformance.
Hence, we advocate buying this stock at current market price for targets close to Rs 2,600 levels in 1-2 weeks. Traders must maintain stop loss below Rs 2,000.
Prolonged underperformance and sideways move halted on Wednesday as the stock price froze at 20 percent upper circuit. The up move was backed by multi-fold volume which suggests that fresh long positions have been carried forward in huge quantities.
All this suggests that the stock is in good hands and poised to head northwards in days to come. Hence, we suggest buying the stock at current market price and accumulating on dips for targets close to Rs 310 in 1-2 weeks in the longer run. Rs 350 can also be seen and keep a stop loss below Rs 250.
It has been underperforming from many years, has not participated in the recent rally in Indian equity markets. Just on December 15, its stock price shot up to settle above its important moving averages.
As it was a single-day up move, it is not wise to rely on it as the overall trend is still weak. Firstly, the stock must consolidate above Rs 150 levels for some time then there will be chances that it may extend this move till Rs 170-180 levels.Disclaimer: The views and investment tips expressed by investment experts on Moneycontrol.com are their own and not that of the website or its management.
