The index recovered from the lows of 10,418 with broad-based positive momentum across sectors and the stocks in the last two days of the week.

Q) Plenty of stocks hit fresh 52-week lows this week instead of 52-week high. Do you think these are stocks which are carrying the momentum and investors should ideally book profits or stay away from them?
A) The entire macro scenario is changing especially with respect to higher crude oil prices and weakness of rupee against Greenback.
We are witnessing stocks from energy, automobiles, cement and midcaps space which is hitting fresh lows and the correction is pretty sharp compared to the broader markets.
Defensive sectors like FMCG and IT are scaling fresh 52-week high in the current month. We would rather suggest booking profit albeit partially, in outperforming sectors.
Investors can also look to invest in beaten-down sectors/stocks, as they will converge over the next few months once the crude prices settle down in the near-term.
Q) What is your call on smallcap and midcap stocks? Should investors stay away or just book profits on rallies?
A) Declining by 7.4 percent and 6.9 percent on a month-to-date (MTD) basis, midcap and smallcap indices are trading below their long-term 200-day average, which offers an opportunity for the investors to accumulate high-quality midcap stocks at regular intervals to build a strong diversified medium-term portfolio.
Q) Top 3-5 positional call which could give handsome returns to investors in next 1 month?
A) Here is a list of top three stocks which could give up to 11 percent return in the next 1 month:
