      • Sunday, December 27, 2009 at 7:40 pm | #2

        Geodesic is in a range of 90 to 150. so one can buy close to lower end of the range and intend to sell at the higher end of the range.
        if you wish to trade for the short term, you can keep a stop around 110 for a target of 135-140.

        Thanks for the wishes. You too have prosperous 2010!

      I have 700 shares of GVK at 46.38. can I hold or sell?

      • Saturday, December 26, 2009 at 5:25 pm | #4

        Hold for next 3-4 weeks keeping a stop below 45. Hold the stock if it manages to cross 54-55 during this period.

      I would be grateful if you could suggest a few stocks that might bring some profit in three to six months. I can invest Rs.1 lakh. How is Tata Elixsi?

      thanks

      • Saturday, December 26, 2009 at 5:27 pm | #6

        Please check the ideas presented on the blog like Ashok leyland, Cadila etc.
        Avoid telecom stocks and speculative stocks like Unitech.

      I Hold 70 Shares of PTC @ 120 since last 2 Years, what should i do? Please Guide.

      • Saturday, December 26, 2009 at 5:35 pm | #8

        if you have held for 2 years, I’d recommend that you hold further for next 3-6 months. You might get more returns in this period than in the last 2 years!

      • Saturday, December 26, 2009 at 5:31 pm | #16

      Dear Sage ,
      I have Idea cellular 200 shares @ avg price of Rs.78 , the stock has recovered a lot from the realms of depth should I hold further or book losses & exit now.

      Bharat forge seems to be stagnant in the range of 260-270 any upward movement expected or safer to exit at these levels enterd @ 176 levels.

      Omaxe ltd holding 65 shares @ 87.50. Any strategy on this scrip.

      Your tips would be held in high regard.

      Thanks !

      I would like to buy tcs. Could you please tell me the entry level of this stock? I had bought this stock a couple of months ago, but taken quick profit at 630/-. Also please suggest entry/exit level of Tata Elixsi.
      thanks

      • Sunday, December 20, 2009 at 9:38 am | #24

        TCS is hitting all time highs and it is very difficult to enter these stocks if your strategy is to buy on dips. Such stocks might never dip and when the finally when the dip happens it transforms into a trend reversal.
        As I had indicated earlier, 650 is a strong support for the stock and you can buy keeping this as your stop loss. People who wait for dips miss the big moves. people who chase momentum without risk management end up riding the down moves.

        Satyam showed promise but failed to deliver. So we are out of it.

        if you keep a longer term view, I would not keep a single stock from the list you have. You can consider focussing on “return of money” rather than “return on money”.

        REC faces some pressure due to the coming FPO. The stock still looks decent from a long term perspective.

      Thanks

      • Friday, December 11, 2009 at 5:54 pm | #37

        I am currently neutral on the stock. I had a few short positions on the stock at 70 which got stopped out at 53. The stock faces tough challenge at 64-65 levels. If the stock manages to cross that, then 75-80. If not, then a move back to 50 is very likely.

      • Thursday, December 10, 2009 at 6:39 pm | #39

      • Thursday, December 10, 2009 at 6:41 pm | #45

        The stock still looks bullish in long term. Although in short term, the stock is a bit sluggish. I’d look for 60-65 targets in medium term with stop losses around 44-45.

      • Thursday, December 10, 2009 at 6:49 pm | #49

        650 is a good support for the stock and a decent entry point.
        Alternatively you can buy now, keeping a stop below 650. One advantage of such approach is that you will not miss any upward moves in the stock while limiting your risk.

      Dear Sage,
      I have not been trading for a fortnight now since markets seem to be in a flux. I have postponed sell / buy of various scrips esp. mid cap due to this reason. Any comments?

      • Thursday, December 10, 2009 at 6:52 pm | #51

        Although midcaps are in sideways mode but such stocks jump suddenly w/o giving an opportunity to enter. Check a stock like KPIT Cummins. and you must be knowing that “pain of missing a winner” is same as “pain of losing”.

      • Sunday, December 6, 2009 at 9:42 pm | #57

        NRE Coke- Buy the stock after it gets past 70-71 on a closing basis. You’d quickly see a target of 80-85 and possibly 90.
        Anant Raj – Avoid the stock. In real estate HDIL, Orbit or DLF might be better bets. Although real estate as a sector is currently not looking great.

      • Sunday, December 6, 2009 at 9:49 pm | #67

        I’d suggest that you make a switch to HCL or TCS. If you wish to play Mahindra Satyam, you can buy Tech Mahindra(owner of Satyam) which carries less risk.

      • Wednesday, December 2, 2009 at 5:45 pm | #85

        The stock is showing some signs of bottoming out but is still not out of the woods. I’d suggest booking some profits around 90 levels and then at 100 levels.
        On the downside, keep a stop around 65.

      Dear Sage, I am holding NMDC, NTPC, HDIL & Jai corp stocks. How these stocks would be considering the current level? Thanks -> Ronald

      • Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at 7:29 am | #106

        HDIL- The stock is showing signs of picking momentum. I’d hold it foe next couple of weeks to see if it breaks out. this is one of the better looking real estate stocks.
        NTPC- Exit. the stock is sideways and is showing no signs of an uptrend. You can consider switching to Tata Power.
        NMDC- the stock went up on news flow of disinvestment. The stock needs to cross 475 to pick momentum. Otherwise, it can get back to 340 levels. Ideally the government should keep the stock levels higher in order to cash out!
        Jai corp- Avoid this junk. You can find many better bets than this one.

      • Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at 7:35 am | #109

        Suzlon- Exit on rise. the stock faces tough challenge at 80.
        Tanla- Exit on rise. Switch to HCL tech or
        Bharti- Exit. Avoid telecoms as they can slide to unimaginable levels.
        JP- Hold
        Adhunik- Keep a stop at 90. Hold the stock if it manages to cross 120 for targets of 150. Till then the stock is in a range of 90-120.

      Hi Sage,

      You have advised us to do a lot of research and pick small caps which can be potential multibaggers. Can you advice us how to go about this research..? I mean what all should we look at in order to identify these stocks..?

      Also is IVRCL a good buy..? If so, at what price?

      Thanx

      • Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at 7:40 am | #111

        I will soon write a post on picking multibaggers (based on my experience).
        In construction sector- get hold of some small caps. They seem to have much more upside than the large players in the sector. IVCRL has gone sideways between 335 to 425. so you can pick it around 340 and sell around 415-420. Alternatively, you buy when the stock gets past 425 for targets of 500.

        • Puneet

Today I have noticed that Hindalco open interest been increased more than 35% for this month future and interesting the stock price is down as well as the premium also down? Is it under shorts or going to move upward? Please suggest.

      1)Holding Cairn at 285.Should I hold or sell – Need advice for short term.
      2)Should I Buy Bharti Airtel at CMP or wait for more fall?
      3)What’s your take on Satyam?.Can it reach 140-150 year end?

      Thank You.

      • Friday, November 20, 2009 at 5:21 pm | #120

        Cairn- Hold
        As I am not a bottom picker, I’d avoid Bharti. 250-270 might be a possible bottom for Bharti.
        Satyam has failed to work. I’d hold it till end of the year to see if it manages to cross 128. There is too much of news flow on the stock.

      • Wednesday, November 18, 2009 at 8:08 am | #130

        Sterlite looks set for 950-1000 in short term.
        Tata Motors is a slightly medium term bet with targets close to 750-800.
        JSW steel has already moved up and looks set to cross 1000.
        All these are good picks for riding the current uptrend.

      Hi Sage,
      I want to ask one generic question here about corporate actions section on BSE.
      Under that section we see the corporate benefits with EX DATE, i.e. those who buy the share one day before are entitled for benefit. Question is how to ensure that these details are correct? Can I sell them next day?

      • Wednesday, November 18, 2009 at 8:19 am | #139

        I am not exactly clear about your question.
        But the details on BSE are those provided by the companies, that cannot be false.

          Hi Sage,

          I want to know the way by which I can make use of those corporate benefits by buy-sell at no loss no profit.

          Buy share at price X before EX-DATE, sell on next day with price X+Brokerage(Both side).

          Is that possible? Need your confirmation and opinion…

        • Wednesday, November 18, 2009 at 10:09 am | #141

      • Saturday, November 14, 2009 at 6:08 pm | #148

        technically looks great but the stock is going up on very low volumes. The risk is that it can hit lower circuits with low volumes.
        Fundamentally, this is a stock with lots of “red flags”. You can trade this stock but keep a 20-30% stop loss to protect your downside.

        HDIL is a good bet while Indiabulls is a good exit on every bounce.
        HDIL can move up to 410 in short term and if it manages to sustain the uptrend then even 650-700 is not ruled out in slightly long term.

        UCO Bank is still a decent bet for next 3-4 weeks while IFCI is more news based and faces a lot of challenges.
        GVK needs to get past 50-52 levels before it can pick real momentum. Fundamentally I am not too much excited with the stock as there are many better bets available in the market. But this can be a decent short term bet for next couple of weeks.

      Dear Sage,
      I have Neyvelli Lignite at 129. Now it has moved rapidly to 160 levels. Please advise me if this is the right time to exit.

      • Wednesday, November 11, 2009 at 4:01 pm | #177

        The stock can reach 185 with this momentum. At the same time to reduce your risk, you should book partial profits and keep a stop at 151 levels to ride this beauty. Good luck!

      • Wednesday, November 11, 2009 at 4:06 pm | #180

        This looks a decent stock from a medium term perspective. But the real momentum will come after 550. I need to check the fundamentals of the stock before commenting on its “quality”.

      • Wednesday, November 11, 2009 at 8:18 am | #184

        It is a high risk high gain stock. Looks some operator activity in the stock as the stock is hitting upper and lower circuits regularly. Upper circuit might entice you to buy but also imagine getting stuck in the lower circuit and not being able to exit!

        The stock faces tough challenege in the 1400 range. if the stock manages to cross 1430 then you can play for 1500+. Otherwise the stock is a range bound play between 1100-1400.

      I hold 55 shares of Bharti Airtel at an average of 329. Whats the future of this stock? Pls advise.

      • Wednesday, November 11, 2009 at 8:53 am | #195

        Depends on your time frame. Telecom sector is going to go through a rough patch in next 6 months – 1 year. It is very likely that Bharti might come out a winner but one also needs to see the cost at which that happens. In the meantime, the stock might fall even more from current levels. it is very likely that the stock hits 240-250 range soon. I’d wait a bit more to see how the telecom game is played out. The stock shall take its time to bottom out. Just in case, the stock becomes available at very cheap valuations, it might become a value play.

      I always respect ur advice but this time I have an Objection.
      You have written that if conditions doesn’t improve company will die quickly.
      Companies see ups & downs in their journeys but a monopoly company like suzlon will die..its hard to digest.

      • Monday, November 9, 2009 at 11:17 pm | #207

        Suzlon doesn’t have a monopoly. It is in a very competitive market.
        As far as death of companies are concerned, you should check the history of corporate world.Capitalism thrives on the death of the inefficient and survival of the best.

      • Monday, November 9, 2009 at 11:24 pm | #212

        I’d suggest that you hold the stock for some time. If you feel that the risk is very high, you can consider booking partial profits to reduce your risk. The stock has a short term potential of 300+.

      Dear Sir,

      L&T got order for Rs.6897 Crore of Power Plant and their Profit is also increased. Likewise GRASIM who is monopoly for Viscose Staple Fibre also made steep profit.

      I think some crocodiles in the market purposely bringing down these shares to purchase from the small investors at bottom level. Afterwards they will sell at high level and book profit.

      Otherwise, it will not go so bottom level. These white collar executives also dance as per the music of these crocodiles.

      What do you feel Mr.Sage?

      RAO

      • Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 4:02 pm | #216

        Mr. Rao- You seem to be little upset at your stock’s underperformance.
        On L&T and Grasim, you have to be a patient investor. these are not like Unitech/Suzlon that move 10% in a day.
        Grasim(along with other cement stocks) are looking bearish. Infact, I had booked my losses in ACC sometime back.
        L&T’s problem is order execution and valuation rather than “order book”.

      Hi Sage,

      Can you provide some insights on What are the current reasons for fall of Suzlon?
      What can be the Bottom.
      I have already incurred so much loss in this stock that I have assumed that I never ever had that money with me. Just want your confirmation to erase the memories of the same.

      If I try to remember about this money after 2 -4 yrs will it be a pleasant surprise?

      • Wednesday, November 4, 2009 at 5:37 pm | #222

        The company has loads of debt and the business is not generating significant cash to service that debt. I need to analyse the company in details to find the triggers for “turnaround”. If the business environment doesn’t improve fast enough, the company will die quickly!
        It is very difficult to determine the bottom for the stock. 35 might be the level to watch out for.

      Thanks for your help.

      • Sunday, November 1, 2009 at 3:48 pm | #236

        Dena Bank-
        Hindalco- Around 100 might be a decent bet for a bounce.
        Lignite- I’d avoid the stock for long term but a short term bounce can be expected around 100-105 levels
        Dena Bank -45-50 is a good support for the stock and provides decent entry point.

      • Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 6:47 pm | #238

        Jet is the classic case of shareholder value destruction!I am not aware of the recent rise in the stock. Also, there is nothing to cheer about in the recent results. May be if the stocks is available at 100-150 bucks, it might become a value play! Otherwise, it is best to trade the stock at suitable times for 10-20% gains.

      I have unitech @ 102, is some more downside left in it. Can it bounce back even if it is in a month or two?

      • Monday, October 26, 2009 at 7:24 pm | #242

        DLF fell on the news of some income tax notice. Unitech has lost momentum and I’d avoid the stock from short to medium term perspective. DLF showed a lot of promise but today’s crack has taken away the short term uptrend that was developing. Still DLF looks the one of the best picks in the real estate.

      Dear Sir,

      I am holding Ind-Swift Ltd., and Ind-swift Lab at 23 and 70. Fundamently it looks strong. Shold I hold or sale ?

      • Saturday, October 24, 2009 at 12:23 pm | #264

        If you have the conviction that they are fundamentally strong, you can hold them. I have not studied them fundamentally.
        Ind Swift Labs can be traded on the long side with a stop at 60.

        The stock is in a decent uptrend. Any move below 800 might break this uptrend. so hold the stock for next targets of 1200-1300.

      Hi…what is your opinion about HUL & TCS from short term trading perspective?

      • Saturday, October 24, 2009 at 7:05 am | #269

        TCS is a decent bet for short term.
        HUL is a decent bet from medium to longer term perspective.
        I am feeling a little concerned with overall market direction due to increase in volatility.

      • Thursday, October 22, 2009 at 9:51 pm | #273

        NIIT Tech looks good from a medium to long term perspective.
        NIIT will pick momentum after it crosses 80. You can then see 100 pretty quickly.
        GVK might give some sharp upside in the short to medium term.

      Hi Sage,

      I am holding 200 Jaiprakash @ Rs. 264 and 500 Suzlon @ Rs. 87.65. I need to sell one of them what would be the best option.

      Kindly suggest.

      • Thursday, October 22, 2009 at 4:45 pm | #276

        Suzlon is definitely not on my buy list.
        As far as JP is concerned, today’s downmove was a bit too sharp. I will watch to see if the stock stays above 220-225. Otherwise, I will exit.

      I just wonder why RIL is not moving up even after completion of two major project succesfully and declaring 1:1 bonus? OK – refinning margins came down, economy is just turning up etc etc. But, it was in anticipation of completion of these projects, RIL was above 3200/- during the peak. I think sentimental damage / uncertenity on a/c of Gas War has spoiled all Reliance scrips (including ADAG) and to lesser extend market in general. Even in worst case senario, RIL set to make profit at a lesser pace, hence not much material damage to RIL. Looks like a good buy @ CMP? Kindly avise.

      Thanks

      • Thursday, October 22, 2009 at 5:46 pm | #278

        At some point of time RIL will be used to drive the NIFTY. You are correct in observing that investors are shying away from the stock due to the ongoing court case with RNRL. No trader will bet big on the stock till that event is over!
        The stock will turn out to be a good bet if energy prices continue their uptrend. With the economic recovery in sight, we might again see $100 on oil pretty soon.

      thanks for your advice.

        NIIT -Hold. 90-95 is possible in medium term.
        STC- Hold for a 440-450 target. Keep a stop at 350.

      Hi Sage,
      After doing some research bought cairn today @285.It closed @280 today itself.
      As a medium term holder should I Hold or Sell.
      Few analysts are expecting it to fall further to 220-240 levels.
      Also need your opinion on JP Associates.
      Thanks in advance.

      • Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 9:45 pm | #286

        I have booked partial profits in JP associates and riding the rest of the position. The stock still has the potential to reach 300.
        Cairn Energy is a pure play on crude oil. If crude sustains the up trend, you will see higher levels on the stock despite analysts’ opinions.
        Do not trade this stock w/o stop losses in place.

      • Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 7:36 am | #288

        Veer Energy- Avoid the stock.There are better stocks available.
        Welspun Gujarat- Looks a good long term bet. Use corrections to accumulate.
        Usha Martin- good short term bet
        Austral -Avoid. The stock has recently been hit by a scandal. If you like taking excessive risk, you can go for it.

      Hi Sage,

      I wonder why this Suzlon has became a handicap stock whereas it was a STAR Performer at the beginning of the rally. Whats the maximum possible level you anticipate for this stock if company declares good results in coming quarters?

      • Tuesday, October 20, 2009 at 5:54 pm | #299

        The stock needs to do a lot of ground work before buying comes back into the stock. Also in the current market, investors want to look at “growth stocks” rather than turnaround stories.
        The market will reject companies with a “weak balance sheets” and who are constantly looking to raise money!

        ideally your stop should have been 56-57.
        Now a stop of 52 is appropriate. Below that a slip to 47 is not ruled out.

      How is 3i Infotech Looking ? Can i buy at this level with IT sector getting a revival at the same time , rupee raising currently…any info on targets will surely help

      • Monday, October 19, 2009 at 10:26 pm | #309

        To be honest with you, although IT stocks are still in an uptrend, I am trimming my positions and are not advising fresh buys (may be some short term traders here and there). The stocks have run up a lot and we are in the process of taking money off the table. My sense is that the stocks will lose some momentum and may trade sideways.
        The prime reason for the same is rupee appreciation. I see some real good rupee appreciation in next 1-2 years!So it is a macro level call.
        You’d have noted that I was bearish on Infosys in 2007 and I have been very bullish on it since the start of this rally. Now I am turning neutral.

        Why do you feel like buying 3i infotech now? I am just curious to understand your reasons.
        Personally, I might trade the stock for good 15-20% moves but might not be interested in a long term bet.

        • Bala
          Tuesday, October 20, 2009 at 10:39 pm | #310

          I agree with you . Its a bit late to enter the counter . The reasons i thought were pure fundamentals. 3i being a IT product company available at decent valuations and also could be a potential acquisition target

        Yes, I have myself bought some PTC. I am looking for 130+ on the stock with stops around 95. You might find it a bit more risky but as a trader I like such momentum plays.

Should I hold it or book profit now.(Most of my other stocks are in loss except RIL, Aban etc but over all I am in 20% profit)

      Thanks.

      • Monday, October 19, 2009 at 3:09 pm | #315

        The stock is having a parabolic run. Two options for you-
        Option 1- Ride the uptrend till the stock starts to reverse.
        Option 2- Book partial profits(say sell 30-50% of quantity) and ride the rest.
        It is never a good idea to sell your winners and keep your losers!So ride this to the moon.
        If your losers are not moving,you might want to give more attention to them!

        • Tuesday, October 20, 2009 at 8:12 am | #320

          Do not buy on the sole basis of rising order book. Look what happened to stocks like L&T and BHEL in 2007. If the stocks become too overvalued, then the future growth gets factored in pretty quickly.
          Also you have to see if they can “execute” on time. Check their past record.

          In short term, the stock(reliance Infra) looks bullish and might jump in next couple of weeks/months.

      • Saturday, October 17, 2009 at 4:46 pm | #330

        Mcdowell- The stock needs to get past 100. Otherwise, it shall stay in range.Still bearish in long term.You can choose to cut your losses here and invest in something else. have a re-look at the stock after it gets past 100.
        Taneja- Again the stock is a 30-50 range. I’d exit the stock now and ride the trend somewhere else.
        Premier- I had suggested a long on this stock couple of weeks back and you should hold this stock.Possibility of 200+ on this stock is bright.

      Please advice soon.

      • Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 4:53 pm | #341

        I have been quite bearish on Suzlon on quite a while and continue to do so. The stock can be a good turnaround story but we need to wait and see if that happens.

      Hi Sage :)
      I need your inputs to invest in Mutual funds for Tax savings. Please suggest, if i should go ahead and invest now or wait for couple of months?

      As well, Please suggest me a Plan in your mind for a time span of 25 years. Thanks :)

      • Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 4:58 pm | #345

        I’d suggest that you invest now as your investments might be locked for 3 years.
        I don’t have a plan for 25 years but you can make plan to make 15%+ on your investments every year. That should multiply 1 lakh to your 33 lakh.
        If you manage to do it at 20%, then your 1 lakh shall be worth 95 lakhs.
        So it is better to be conservative and invest in different assets to achieve your target return.

      I have been tracking your blog since more than 2 months, i am also tracking other blogs too. But there is no one who shares knowledge like you do. In fact I have seen few times where in you suggest a stock first and then in next few days its there in all TV channels and other places but y that time the stock would have already moved by 4-10% from your suggested price.
      Please keep up the good work and God Bless you

        Teledata is a good short term bet as I had pointed out earlier. A target of 12 is possible if you are willing to take risks.NIIT will move once it crosses 75-80 zone.

      What would be your opinion.

      Regards,

      • Wednesday, October 14, 2009 at 5:21 pm | #363

        Hold and keep a stop at 65. There is a probability of a short term rebound.
        One general suggestion which might help you- Before you buy any stock, make sure you understand the “reasons” why you are in. If those reasons are not valid any more, then you simply exit. otherwise, you might be left stuck with a big loser.

      Hi Sage,
      I am planning to buy Dalmia Cement. I am a short term investor of 3 to 4 months expecting around 15 to 20% returns. Today’s stock price is 168.85. Can I enter at this level?
      Please advise.
      Thanks,
      Eashwari.

      • Wednesday, October 14, 2009 at 5:24 pm | #365

        Cement has disappointed so far. You can buy keeping a stop around 155. If the stock doesn’t move up in next 2-3 weeks, you simply exit.
        As your time frame is 3-4 months, you can take a bet. Had it been 3-5 weeks, I’d have advised to avoid this stock.

        Hold as the stock is a slow mover and shows sudden jumps. The stock can reach 560 and 600 in next 2-3 months. Keep a stop at 430.

      Sage,
      I could notice that plenty of block deals happen in ICICI Bank at the closing hours. It seems FII & MF been buying heavily on this. Is it advisable to enter at current price for short term gain?

      • Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 10:14 pm | #376

        My medium term targets were 970-1000. They might be reached. If they don’t, you get out with a small loss.
        ( I do not buy based on block deals as FIIs/MFs can be as dumb as the retail investors. All of us know what happened to MFs and FIIs in 2008.)

      Dear Sage,
      we cannot time the stock market, as they say. i have few stocks in mind which i would like to buy for a longterm, between 4 to 5 Years or for value, such that the stocks appreciates more than 60% to 70% in 3 to 4 years. i would like to know fundamentally what would be ideal price range to enter and buy these stocks in the next 6 months. the stocks are BHEL, HDFC, RIL, STERLITE, AMBUJA CEMENTS, TCS, ONGC,GE SHIPPING, SBI, VOLTAS, EDUCOMP, NESTLE, SUN PHARMA and CIPLA. are these stocks good ones to buy and hold for a long term. will there be any major corrections in the near term say in the next 3 to 4 months (for a better buy). or will there be another crash (night mare)like the one in 2008.
      i will be very happy to hear from you.
      Thanks once again.

      • Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 5:09 pm | #378

        Couple of thoughts:
        -On what basis have you selected these scrips?
        -There are certain contradictions in what you are thinking. One one hand you say that stock markets can not be timed whereas on the other hand you ask if there will be a 2008 like crash in the future (prediction). Is there an intent to time the markets?

      • Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 1:40 pm | #381

        Too early to say if it is bullish. The stock needs to stay bullish for couple of more sessions and needs to make an attempt to cross 85. Otherwise, a move back to 60 is on the cards.

      Dear Sage,

      Can I enter EDSERV solution at this stage (CMP 183.35) ? What is the future of this company ? PPl are telling this will go like EDUCOMP.

      Please give your valuable suggestion.

      • Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 1:47 pm | #384

        The stock has a very strong uptrend. I remember seeing the stock at 40 odd levels back in June-July. Entry at this level can be more risky as more and more people jump on to the bandwagon. (Look what happened with HOEC)
        So for entry at this level, you have to cover your tracks and put a stop loss at around 150. This stock can easily go to 300+ or fall back to 50. To summarise, if you are not a disciplined trader, it might be better to avoid this beauty.

        Next targets are 7.5 and 10. Put a stop around 4.5 although such stocks never give a chance to exit if they start hitting down circuits. Such stocks are “real suckers”. So I tend to avoid such circuit hitting stocks.

      Hi sage

      I am a long-term investor. I want to know what would be the appropriate time to enter the mkts now. Can we expect some 10-20% correction in near term.

      • Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 10:51 am | #392

        I do not and cannot predict corrections. I believe in “reacting” to corrections. Right now the scepticism is too much. I have been hearing these constant rumours of markets falling after Diwali and all. As an investor, stay away from these rumours. I first heard in July that Sensex will fall back to 11000 and look what happened.
        while a 10-20% correction cannot be ruled out, the probability of it happening in Dec-Jan time frame is much higher.(just speaking statistically).
        Finding value in this market is going to be tough. A lot of value was there when NIFTY was below 3000. Now it is more about momentum.

      i am holding two future lots of bharti airtel @ 385. whether my purchase price will be reached.

      It will be great if could let me know the due date bharti q2 results.

      Further, for my undertanding i wish to know that airtel was underperforming due to MTN deal ( i.e its price shd be around 500 comparing its peers corresponding price to NIFTY). Now, due to per second concept it is again underperforming whithout reviving its corresponding price. Why airtel is hit by a double whammy.

      • Monday, October 12, 2009 at 8:10 pm | #396

        Telecom stocks in general have been hit due to “price wars”. Already ARPUs were under pressure and with so much of new competition (Unitech Wireless,Shyam telecom etc.) , the market has grown sceptical of the sector.
        The stock fell badly because a lot of people were long on the stock. 370 should have been your stop loss if you bought at 385. Trading futures w/o guidance and knowing your risk is like playing with fire!
        Trading is all about “present” and managing your risk.
        As far as Bharti is concerned, I am looking to short the stock on every rise. if the stock crosses, 370 then you might see 380. Otherwise, it is better to cut your losers and trade something else to recover your losses. If you get tend to get stuck with a single trade, then you should not be in this game.
        Tell me what will you do if NIFTY falls by 100 points and Bharti falls by another 10% !
        (Not trying to scare you but making you aware of the risks)

        This might be the right time to book partial profits in IT sector.
        Banking sector is still doing fine and is likely to move higher.
        Real estate stocks like Unitech are decent bets but they are very volatile stocks.so one should not be overweight on these stocks.
        ( I am assuming that you are a slightly longer term investor)

      Dear sir,

      I bought STC 100 at 335. Can I hold or exit?

      • Sunday, October 11, 2009 at 6:41 am | #414

        I’d keep a stop around 300. The stock might take time to pick up as it is lacking any short to medium term momentum. I am not too sure if you bought it for long term or short term.

      Hello Sage,

      I have SUZLON 1000 shares at Rs.97.25. I am long term investor. Can I hold it for 6 to 9 months? Please advise.
      Thanks

      • Saturday, October 10, 2009 at 3:18 pm | #417

        I have been bearish on Suzlon from a long term perspective. if the markets correct a bit more Suzlon can slide to 70 and then even 50. In the current market, you can find many better choices for next 6-9 months. Look out for FMCG, auto ,Pharma or Banking sector.
        Suzlon is yet to show any signs of turnaround.

          Saturday, October 10, 2009 at 8:48 pm | #418

          In that case

          ICICI Bank
          Vijaya Bank
          Hindustan Uniliver
          Sunpharma

          which will be better.

      • Friday, October 9, 2009 at 9:49 pm | #425

        The sentiment on IT stocks has dampened because of rupee appreciation. There is a negative correlation between rupee appreciation and IT stock performance.I’d start paring down my positions in IT stocks on every bounce.

      • Friday, October 9, 2009 at 6:49 am | #431

        The stock is in a tight range of 12-14. So put a stop at 12 as the stock can fall to 10 or below if it falls below 12.

      • Thursday, October 8, 2009 at 9:35 pm | #439

        Your buy rate in Infosys and SBI was a little off as some profit booking is happening in these counters.
        MIC is in a bearish trend in the long term but sideways in the short term. keep a stop at 45.

      Dear Sage,
      i am a longterm investor with a time horizon of 5 Years. i want to build a portifolio of some good companies may be 10 to 15 Max, across sectors. i had invested a few lakhs and lost much during the 2008 market crash. i have learnt a lesson from this crash and i need your suggestion on some of the good stocks in the current scenario to buy and hold for long term (5 Yrs) by fresh entry to market from now onwards in the next 3 to 4 months. first, is this a good approach ? even my earlier investment were for long term but some where before the midway the market crashed and went into loss heavily. many of the companies are much below their high’s. and some good stocks got thro’ IPO allotments are quoting below the issue price. i cannot get away from this (stock market) also, as i have seen the markets and understand the ups and downs and many times i very much tempted to enter into the market. my goal is to double the invested amount in the next 4 to 5 years, (from this 10 to 15 stocks).
      OR
      this could not be the approch to play in stock market and one has to buy and sell continuosly to make money in stock market? and in that case is Mutual Fund the best option for a ong term investor.
      i will be very happy to hear from you.
      Thanks Once again.

      • Friday, October 9, 2009 at 7:04 am | #441

        Before 2008 crash, anyone could have easily sold you “buy and hold” strategy. With today’s globally integrated markets, the risks are too high. You can still build a 10-15 stock portfolio for next 3-5 years but you need to monitor and evaluate that portfolio on a regular basis. this is because all the 10-15 stocks you choose might not perform according to expectations.
        Even if you invest in mutual funds, you have to monitor the broader market moves so as to plan your exits. In mutual funds, I think index investing works the best. This is because 80-90% of MFs underperform the main indices and charge huge fees. Which means that you invest in a few “index funds” that track the NIFTY.
        I don’t think it is necessary to be a short term trader to make money. Infact some of the better trades I had were held for more than 1 year. It all depends on your own mental style. If you find it too stressful, you should never indulge into it.
        If you wish to invest for slightly longer term, then next 3-4 months might not be right for you.(again depend on market trend). Ideally a long term investor like you should wait for a mini-crash and then put his money.
        Finally – you have to understand that there are no “right ” answers in investing and that’s why it is so challenging.

        Bharti showed some promise when it looked like getting past 450. Now the stock is in a bear grip.Markets never like industries that indulge in price wars!
        Telecom market is soon going to be crowded with the entry of so many players. the growth phase in voice services is gone now, therefore the operators need to look beyond voice!3G might be another game changer in the space.

      • Wednesday, October 7, 2009 at 8:09 am | #467

        IFCI went up and is now back in consolidation mode. The stock is still a good bet for medium to long term.

Brand name, relatively few competitors ( Prestige- gone into real estate business), continuous five years of increasing EPS, less debt, really good ROE and ROCE and on top of that cool dividend yield.
      My question is -can it be a multi-bagger from CMP?

      • Sunday, October 4, 2009 at 7:31 pm | #485

        The stock lacks momentum in the short to medium term and will pick up only after it manages to cross 50.
        In the medium term the stock is fine and can be held with stop losses of 35.
        In the long term, I’d still avoid the stock till it shows some clear uptrend (similar to an ICICI or SBI or HDFC bank)

      i want to ask about Confidence Petroleum India?? do you think i can buy @ cmp for one or two month target of 11??

      • Sunday, October 4, 2009 at 6:34 am | #495

        It is good that you just want to trade the stock rather than hold it for long. Stock like these only rise in bull markets and fall like nine pins in a bear market.
        Currently the stock is not a good candidate for momentum trading but it is near the low end of its 7-12 range. So you can buy keeping a stop at 6.70 and trade the bounce back.
        For trading short term momentum, there are many other rockets available in the market. Better to pick one of those.

      • Sunday, October 4, 2009 at 6:52 am | #498

        Going to 200 depends on market momentum. I’d keep a target of 140-150 in a month or two if trends remain intact.
        Keep stops around 90.

      • Wednesday, October 7, 2009 at 8:12 am | #500

        Hold HCC for a target of 150
        Areva has a short term target of 350. In the long term, the stock is sideways.

      • Friday, October 2, 2009 at 10:29 pm | #502

        The stock is in a 140-180 range. Currently the stock has a downward bias. A fall below 140 can take the stock back 110-120. A breakout above 180 will take it to 210.
        I would stay away from the stock right now and wait for a clear trend to emerge.

        The stock is very likely consolidate between 1200-1400 level for sometime before moving up.
        Just in case, market momentum remains intact,you might see even 1550 and 1700 on the stock.

        the stock can see even lower levels. I’d advise you to switch to a better counter. The stock has fallen from 300 to 50 and continues to fall.
        The stock is trading at all time lows, so there are no supports on the downside.The stock had the potential for a free fall.

        hold DCHL.
        if you are a medium term player than keep a stop at 90. If you are short term player keep a stop around 105.
        On the upside 170 and 2225-230 are likely targets in short and medium term.

        This can be a good short term trading bet.Buy keepin a stop at 17 with a target of 23 and 28.
        The stock is a bit dodgy in the long term and you can find better stocks in the cable sector.

How did you pick these stocks? What kind of risk and return were you looking for? If you don’t think about these questions, you will end up gifting your hard earned money to market sharks!

      thanks you very much.

        I had advised earlier also to “sell on news”. We have completely exited the counter.

      hi Sage,

      I am getting a lot of help from you and learning day by day. I want to start short selling also but before doing that i need the list of equities in which NSE allows short selling. Plz suggest from where i can get that list?

      hi,
      can we enter bharti airtel @cmp? thanks…..

      • Thursday, September 24, 2009 at 12:58 am | #594

        Praneetha- I’d avoid Bharti as the news flow is too much and makes the stock very volatile. if you get it around 360-370, it might be good to enter for a trading bounce.

      Hi Sage

      I hold 200 TANLA got @60 ..shall i sell or hold?

      • Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 10:04 pm | #596

        If it crosses 75 then 90 is the target. If not, then back to 60-65.

      • Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 9:39 pm | #598

        Hold for a few more weeks with a stop around 75. Possible targets of 110-115.

      Hi, I have 400GMRINFRA @143.40, 800MICROTECH @137, 200Raymond@222 and 200Glenmark@222.

      Should I hold on these or exit

      Thanks

      • Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 10:10 pm | #600

        Suresh- Here is what I think (short to medium term perspective):
        Glenmark is in a deep mess, so I’d avoid/exit the stock.
        Microtech if it manages to get past 170, 200-220 will be on cards pretty quickly. Looks a decent bet in medium term.
        GMR – The stock is sideways and won’t pick up till the buyers take it past the 150-160 range. So I’d exit now and reconsider when momentum picks up.

      Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 5:36 pm | #601

      I have bought 2000 shares @ Rs 9 of Vardhman Acrylics Ltd. Should i hold upto Rs 11 for short term?

      • Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 9:41 pm | #602

        Keep a stop at 7.5. the stock has lost short term momentum and needs to cross 10-11 to reach 13+. Below 7.5 it can quickly slip to 5.

      Is it advisable to invest in Sun Pharmaceuticals or Divi’s Laboratories in current CMP? At which level should I buy any of these above stocks?

      Thanks in advance

      • Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 10:34 pm | #604

        Sun pharma and Divi Labs are rangebound and not good for short/medium term.

      do you feel sesagoa can be entered at current CMP of 280 or shal i wait for the price to come down?? kindly advise

      • Thursday, September 24, 2009 at 1:01 am | #606

        If u want to buy short term, keep a stop at 250. for longer term, a stop around 215 is more suitable.

      Hi Sage,
      Whats the future on India Infoline, I bought few at 152.45, I can hold it for Mid and long term no issues.Whats the stop loss below which i should sell off.

      • Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 10:37 pm | #609

        The performance of brokerage stocks depend on performance of equity markets. You can keep a stop at 120 and look for targets of 180 and 220.

      • Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 10:50 pm | #611

        Zandu looks good in the short term. Buy with a stop at 8700. Targets of around 13000 and 16000.

      Hello Sage

      I am planning to buy LIC HF and IDFC tomorrow. Will this be a right time to enter into this stocks?

      Please advice some short term stocks for a period of 3 to 6 months.

      Thanks,

      • Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 9:24 am | #613

        IDFC fine but LHF is too risky now.If you are comfortable with the risk, the stock can rocket even higher.

      hello sage plz guide which stocks and sectors will be in upword trend .

      • Tuesday, September 22, 2009 at 8:50 pm | #615

        It is difficult to say which will be in uptrend. Focus on sectors and stocks which are in current uptrend. Focus your energies on reacting to market moves rather than predicting market moves. Look how IT, auto and banking has been moving steadily over the past few months.

      Hi Sage,

      I have Marico @ 89.
      What do u suggest?
      Should i hold or exit as this scrip is not showing any momentum?
      I am a short term trader.
      Thanks in advance.

      • Tuesday, September 22, 2009 at 5:57 pm | #617

        You probably picked a wrong scrip for short term trading. Marico is a defensive scrip so this might not move as fast as other momentum plays.
        The stock is a good long term buy but might not be great short term pick as the it is spending time in consolidation. Pick it up again when it gathers some momentum.

          Looks good for short and medium term. 170-175 possible. Keep a stop at 135.

      • Tuesday, September 22, 2009 at 7:09 pm | #622

          I do not invest based on news and rumours. So I might not be able to guide you in this regard. Operators usually spread these rumours to jack up the price of a stock. You might do well to invest in a quality name.

      Hi Sage,
      This query is about Bartronics India which has monopoly in RFID and SMART CARD business.
      So it fits into one of Warren Buffett’s criteria. But is it a value buy at CMP?
      Please Do reply.
      Vikas

      • Monday, September 21, 2009 at 6:17 pm | #642

        Vikas- RFID and Smart card technologies can be provided by global players like IBM also. I have not done any valuation exercise on Bartronics but can tell you how the stock looks technically.
        The stock looks a decent medium term bet and I see a target of 200 and 250 very much on the cards. A stop at 150 is very reasonable.

        Punjab Comm- Target of 50 is possible in the short term. Stop at 30.
        Sakthi Sugar – Still bullish. 120-130 is the short term target.

      • Monday, September 21, 2009 at 6:25 pm | #647

        Hold Aban. the company is raising equity to reduce debt and if the oil price continues the uptrend, higher levels(2000 and 2500) on aban are on the cards.
        BPCL- Ride with a stop at 475. stock is very volatile and not good for short term trading.

      Sir,

      I have Gujarat NRE coke @ Rs. 69.70/-. Should I hold or sell the share

      • Monday, September 21, 2009 at 2:18 pm | #649

        Richa- To be honest I exited the stock around 70 last week as we entered around 60 and had made 15%+ in a week.
        the stock is still good for medium term and you might see 80-85 in next few weeks if the uptrend remains intact. My only concern- too many people have bought the stock on bonus news. I usually reduce my position/sell the stock on such rumours.
        So please keep a stop at around 60, just in case the stock starts to reverse sharply.

      • Monday, September 21, 2009 at 1:04 pm | #651

        Rangarajan- Good for short term. stop at 8.5 and target of 18-20 if the uptrend sustains.
        BTW- How did you pick this stock?
        (FYI- The stock fell from a peak of 45 to a low of 5 during last bear market)

        suresh- The stock is showing no momentum in short term and medium term. I’d exit the stock and pick something else. You can have a re look at the stock if it starts to climb towards 50 and crosses that.

      • Monday, September 21, 2009 at 1:08 pm | #656

        whats the buzz and what are the targets being talked out?
        Although I stay away from market rumours, it is good to know about them. We had traded this giant mover last time also in 2007. Moves very sharply!I remember that it had moved from 50 to 350 in two flat months back in 2007.
        Currently, it is a sleeping giant. If you are an aggressive trader, you can buy now keeping a stop at 140-45 for a 200 target in next 4-7 weeks.

      • sagecapital
        Sunday, September 20, 2009 at 11:39 pm | #663

        Your entry in Hindalco was a bit off. So the stock carries a higher risk for you. My subscribers have already made 30%+ on the stock as it was recommended close to 110. So it carries less risk for such traders. The stock is still in a buy mode for longer term investors.
        Reliance is a good hold but keep a stop at 2000.
        Opto is again a decent hold but from a longer term perspective. In short term the stock might just consolidate a bit.
        Pantaloon is gain a hold but stock needs to get past 350 for a target of 400-420.

        It is important to have right entries and exits if you are a short term trader. Without that you might be relying a lot more on your luck!

        Value buying should have been done when sensex was below 10k. It is very difficult to say as to when Rpower will actually create value for its shareholders. We shall play the stock here and there for some quick momentum gains. For long term, I’d still avoid the stock.

        Abhi- DCHL has major supports around 90-95. The upside target is around 135-140. The stock is a good medium to long term bet. You might have to be a little patient with the stock.

        Akhilesh- you have been patient with a loser for so long. Why do you wish to be impatient with a winner? If you feel the risk is too high, then keep a stop at 250.
        I personally feel that the stock can even trend higher. I’ suggest that you continue to hold the stock till it reverses sharply.

      • sagecapital
        Saturday, September 19, 2009 at 7:17 pm | #681

        Finolex- Buy above 47-48 for a target of 57-58 and then 70+. Till it crosses 47-48, the stock shall remain sideways.
        Artson- Buy keeping a stop at 44. It is a risky stock so be cautious. Buy in small quantity if you wish to take a punt.

      10 EDUCOMP @ 4224
      100 ADSL @ 447

      • sagecapital
        Saturday, September 19, 2009 at 7:27 pm | #693

        Laya- I’d hold these stocks if you are a slightly long term investor/trader (4 months+). If you are a short term trader, then you need to have stops to cover your risk. You can never take such stocks for granted. They move up sharply and reverse sharply in the short term.

    353. Satish
      Friday, September 18, 2009 at 1:09 pm | #694

      Pls. suggest which is the best stock from below three for short term or medium term and also according to you when should I buy this stock. 1) Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd., 2) TCS & 3) Oracle Financial Services Software Ltd.

      Thanks in advance

      • sagecapital
        Saturday, September 19, 2009 at 7:23 pm | #695

        All look great. the choice depends on your personal portfolio risk and diversification. Dr. Reddy might have more juice in the short term. Actually I had suggested the stock to my subscribers last week around 820-830 levels. Some move has already happened and some juice might still be left.
        I like TCS and oracle also- have traded these many times in the recent past. Oracle is part of long term portfolios.

      • sagecapital
        Thursday, September 17, 2009 at 11:49 pm | #699

        A scrip going down in a market moving up -what does this tell you? Do you think the scrip will move up when markets start to correct?

      • sagecapital
        Friday, September 18, 2009 at 7:42 am | #700

        Raj – Fortis is very volatile and can even touch 95-100 in a correction. On the upside it faces challenge in the 120+ range. If you remain patient with the stock, you might see some gains.

        Even I had been bullish on the stock. But y’day sale of stock by RIL was a big dampener. Let’s see if it was a one off event or does it make the stock bearish in the medium term.

      Hi Sage,

      I m holding 950 shares of Gujarat Nre Coke avg @55 from last one year.You suggested me once it will cross its resistance level 60 then it will move to 72-75 ,it has crossed its resistance level reached (71.4) and CMP(67.6).But from past two days it is going down and seems to me some bonus shares & dividend news are there.So please suggest what to do now?

      • sagecapital
        Thursday, September 17, 2009 at 6:30 pm | #708

        Simple mantra- sell on news and rumours. When others are willing to buy the news, you sell your stuff to them. This is the reason why I entered at 60-61 and exited around 70 (15%+ in a week). I might re-enter depending on the when the rumours die.

      I have been looking at PSU banks and have seen a lot of movement with most of them in recent times. I bought Dena Bank 1000@ 57 some time back. I am looking forward for a correction, so that I can enter some of these banks again and increase my lot size. Kindly let me know whether I am thiking rightly? Thanks.

      • sagecapital
        Thursday, September 17, 2009 at 6:35 pm | #714

        Your thinking is on the right line. Good luck!
        We have made good profits on many of the banks in last 1-2 weeks.
        Just one word of caution- please don’t overload your portfolio with banking stocks as the sector might be negatively affected when growth and inflation picks up and there is a talk of rising interest rates.

      Might sound weird to you.. but just a quick query. If i were to ask you at this hour on what would be your favourite (scrip)pick today and what would be the target? I am asking this cos i have booked profits in all my exisiting stocks and sitting idle watching the market and enjoying this run.. Just wanted to take some calculated risk with your advise. Just one stock advise from you and ill buy few and watch.

      • sagecapital
        Thursday, September 17, 2009 at 10:29 am | #720

        Now you can watch stocks “moving up” and “miss the move”. Do you have a re-entry strategy? I wonder how you are enjoying the market when you are not in and stocks are moving up! had I been in your place, I might have felt a bit of pain- the pain of missing out !

        Thursday, September 17, 2009 at 8:28 am | #723

        Avoid TV 18 as of now. Infact, I’d short the stock if it rises. I hate CNBC as they fool the retail investors!On a serious note- the stock is in a deep bear grip.
        IDFC is interesting and let’s see if it crosses 150. The stock is on my radar.
        Neyvile- This again is waiting to pick up some momentum. Again on the radar.

      Hi Sage,
      One general knowledge question I have not specific to any stock,
      When I purchase a share on BSE can I sell it on NSE & vice versa?
      How the prices on both the exchanges are mostly hand in hand with each other?

      Thanks a lot
      Sachin

      • sagecapital
        Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 7:14 am | #741

        once you buy a stock from an exchnage, it comes to your demat account. After that you can again buy/sell on any of the exchnages.
        The prices are hand in hand because of the arbitrage opportunity.
        Assume a stock is quoting at 105 on NSE and 100 on BSE. Immediately traders shall recognise that and sell the stock on NSE and buy the stock on BSE thus earning a risk free return. As more and more traders recognise this opportunity, the price difference narrows. That’s why you see a close tracking of prices. Whenever there is a mismatch, arbitrage happens and prices again begin to track each other.
