Edited excerpts from the conversation:

Abhinav Jaiswal: I have bought 500 shares of RBL Bank at Rs 515 apiece for short term. Should I hold or book profits?

Aditya Agarwala: I would recommend one to hold on to the shares. One could also book partial profits. Bandhan Bank is also a good stock for investment.

Saurabh Pathak: Between Kotak Mahindra Bank and Yes Bank, which one should I invest in with a long-term perspective?

Sharmila Joshi: I would recommend one to invest in Yes Bank. One could also consider investing in RBL or Bandhan Bank.

Ayush Jain: I have bought 1,000 shares of Havells India at Rs 560 apiece with a short-term perspective. Should I hold or book profits?

Aditya Agarwala: I would suggest one to hold on to the stock. This is a strong stock with healthy volumes.

Navin Agarwal: I am holding shares in National Fertilizers at Rs 70-levels. What should be my exit target? Please advise.

Sharmila Joshi: I would recommend one to continue to hold on to the stock.

Abhishek Rai: I have bought 500 shares of Mahindra CIE at Rs 235 apiece with a short-term horizon. Should I hold or book profits?

Aditya Agarwala: I would recommend one to hold on to the stock with a stop-loss of Rs 240.

Aurobindo Panda: I am holding 120 shares of UPL. My time horizon is one-two months. What should I do?

Aditya Agarwala: I would recommend one to hold on to the stock. One should keep a stop-loss of Rs 620.

Jayesh Tulsiani: I wish to invest Rs 1 lakh in an IT sector stock with a one-year perspective. Which stocks would you suggest?

Sharmila Joshi: One can invest in Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys at current levels. Tata Elxsi is a good mid-cap stock.

Ankit Mishra: I have bought 20,000 shares of Tata Motors DVR at an average rate of Rs 231 apiece with a long-term perspective. I have incurred a loss of Rs 18 lakh. What should I do?

Sharmila Joshi: I think one can diversify in the same space. If the stock has corrected a lot from the levels one bought it at, one can consider averaging at current levels. I would recommend one to invest into Bajaj Auto or TVS Motors. M&M, too, has a great investment potential.

Karthik Mahadevan: I have bought 500 shares of Acrysil India at Rs 440 apiece. I would like a technical view with a five-year period of investment.

Aditya Agarwala: This is a thinly-traded stock with drastic price changes. I would suggest one to exit the stock.

Gopi Ramakrishna: I need a technical view on Aurobindo Pharma. I have bought it a call value of Rs 600 and I am looking at a time period ending in 20 days.

Aditya Agarwala: I would suggest one to hold on to the stock.

Navneet: Is it a good time to invest in Federal Bank at the current level with a short-term perspective?

Aditya Agarwala: I expect the stock to gain. So, one can invest in the stock at the current level.

Navneet: What is your view on Tata Motors? An investor holds it at the Rs 300-level. What is your advice?

Aditya Agarwala:  I would recommend one to wait for the stock to consolidate and then buy it. Hold on to the stock.

Jitendra Kumar: I wish to invest Rs 1 lakh in 3M India. Should I enter the stock at current levels or should I wait for a correction?  I have a time horizon of three-four years. Kindly advice.

Sharmila Joshi: With a long-term perspective, I think this is a good stock one can invest in.

Ujjwal: I bought shares of Reliance at Rs 980 apiece. Can one make a fresh entry into the stock?

Sharmila Joshi: If one is a long-term investor, this is a good stock.
Aditya Agarwala: I would recommend on to make a fresh entry with a stop-loss of Rs 1,160.

Deepanshu Bhatia: I have invested in 500​ shares of Fortis Health at Rs 150  apiece. What should I do?

Aditya Agarwala: I would suggest one to keep a stop-loss of Rs 125. One can exit at Rs 160.

Rekha Dhotre: I need a long-term view on Dhampur Sugar Mills. I own 500 shares at Rs 31 apiece. What should I do?

Sharmila Joshi: I think one should not immediately invest into the stock. This is a very volatile stock.

Deepanshu: I have bought 200 shares of Maruti Suzuki at Rs 6,600 apiece. What should I do?

Sharmila Joshi: I would recommend one to hold on to the stock.

Alex: What is your short-term view on Jamna Auto?

Aditya Agarwala: I would wait for the stock to correct till the Rs 70-level to make a fresh entry.

Navneet: Are Hindalco and Idea good stocks to invest in?

Sharmila Joshi: Hindalco is a great stock to invest at the current level. I am a bit apprehensive about the telecom sector stocks but Idea seems like a good bet, given it is entering into a merger with Vodafone.
