      I am negative on telecom sector stocks (RCOM/tata tele).
      Construction and metals looks okay from a medium term.
      It is good to notice that you have some quality names in your portfolio. These are much better than “unknown small caps”.

      Sravanth- I do not recommend day trading. Most of the moves on the markets happen overnight. So if you are not holding a stock, you might miss those big moves. If you still wish, stick to NIFTY futures as they are liquid and easier to trade.

    Both the stocks are in nice uptrend. Ride these stocks till the trend is up! I am not sure if the uptrend shall hold for next 6 months or next 6 years.
    Your job is not to predict the bend but get out when the bend happens!

    Thanks for the pat on the back.

    Sage, Your blog post is very useful. I came to know to know about your blog through MMB.

    It is not just about stocks, but also about the art of investing in stock, which you have dealt with elaborately. Your posts regarding objectives of investing, risk management, follow the trend, etc., are a must read for any investor.

    Congrats. Keep up the good work.

    Your opinion on Vijaya Bank stake …….. if so at what levels should one try and exit out of the stock

  14. sagecapital
    Monday, November 19, 2007 at 9:20 pm

    200 might hold on RPL althought it is very difficult to predict.
    There are many midcap ideas waiting to be exploited. You can check my products to receive such ideas. I also discuss quite a few of them on the blog also.

  15. think strategic
    Monday, November 19, 2007 at 9:10 pm

    Firstly A very good sense of humour ………….

    Quite aware of the recent dip in the price of RPL sorry for daggin on … do u reackon 200 and further dip below 200 would be appropriate levels to accumulate RPL and holding on ……….. as I said for a year or two ……….

    thanx for FIRM HOLD caution before investing ……… any other mid cap stock that you find promising and see potential growth …………

  16. sagecapital
    Monday, November 19, 2007 at 9:00 pm

    First- I am not that old or wise to be compared to your dad 🙂
    RPL might do exceptionally well if crude stays in the vicinity of 100 dollars.
    Buying on dips..
    Ask someone who bought a ton of RPL at 300, bought another at 290 and then another at 280.
    I know someone who bought 50000 RPL@285 and got agitated by seeing my post where I said that it can fall further!
    I don’t bet my house on a single stock even if I know it is going to the moon. Its better to be “less confident” and “doubtful” while investing.

    Monday, November 19, 2007 at 8:50 pm

    great work, i just accidently bumped in to your site, found some of your feedback really informative, a very good through analysis on the recent BIGGIES RPL and RNRL, I really like your comment where you its a BULL RUN for those who have made 2 lakhs+ in gain and quite not for some one with a 10grand loss, you sound just like my dad.

    Hypothetically RPL’s now lost over 30% and is on 210 level and I keen on opportunitic buying at these levels, and I really wanna focus on long term 1 -2 years, you thoughts on this ……..

    My strong perception to go with this would b …

    – a close to 100% proximity for a divident in these years
    – a strong momentum in the stock as it gets close to the production stages …..
    – A fundamentally strong stock

    your thoughts would be greatly appreciated, would like to invest heavily at the prices of 205 and constantly accumulate with every dip ………..

    Srini-Thanks for the encouragement. You might not feel the need to visit moneycontrol once you learn to invest without following the news.
    If 99% of investors know about a particular news, do you feel it will give you any edge in the market?Whereas ordinary investor buys on good news, institutions and smart traders sell.

    Wait for a close above 1200.A strong closing above these levels can take the stock higher.

    Your blog is quite nice and informative.
    As far as stock market is concerned. Trading in market requires
    both time and Knowledge. Without these two factors its impossible to trade .
    If you get recommendations from some specialist then also you must keep in mind its your money you
    should invest it wisely. Its always advisable to get recommendations from analyst but again before investing you should do your research also.

    We suggest you one thing never ever work on any rumour because rumours are spread to meet personal goals.

    The stock was trading at Rs 2 in 1996 and in 2007 it is trading at Rs 3. Why din’t it become a multibagger during these 10 years?

    i stumbled upon your site while going through the yaho finance site. i have been an investor in stocks from almost 25 years. (i am 59 yrs. old). i am very wary of analysts and newsletters. but i found you to be unbiased, sober and credible. i think i will go through site everyday.

    incidentally, have you noticed bluestar going up daily?

    Sonu- I do not have any opinion on DLF as i analyse based on past price action but based on subscription levels, I feel that FIIs/institutions might give stock a “pop up” on the listing day as there was a slight demand demand/supply mismatch.
