Watch the full conversation here:

Here are the edited excerpts of the conversation:

Gopal Samy: I bought 120 shares of Graphite India at Rs 704 apiece with a one-month view. Should I hold or sell?

Brijesh Singh: The investor can hold onto the stock with a stop loss of Rs 685.

Chittibabu: I bought 100 shares of Hudco at Rs 81.84 apiece with a one-year view. Should I book losses or average out?

Vinit Bolinjkar: There is no harm in holding on to the counter, the investor can look at some recovery by then.

Saurabh Shetty:​ Is it the right time to invest in Gujarat Industries Power for two years?

Vinit Bolinjkar: I am quite optimistic on the space, and the company is a good bet too. I expect the prices to come back, hence the investor can continue to hold. A fresh investment is, however, not warranted.

Nandkishor Dhawale: What is the short term view on Equitas holdings?

Brijesh Singh: The investor can hold on to the stock as long as it continues to trade above Rs 142.

Shivu SB: I bought 500 shares of HDFC Bank at Rs 1,940. What should I do?

Vinit Bolinjkar: The investor should continue to hold. It is poised to gain a lot of market share from the other private players going forward.

Dheeraj Agrawal:​ I bought 240 shares of GNFC six months back. What should I do with a three-year view in mind?

Vinit Bolinjkar: A 25 percent is quite reasonable to expect of GNFC. So, the investor can hold onto it.

Shibin Mon Hamza: Is it the right time to purchase Tata Motors?

Brijesh Singh: The investor should only invest if he has a time frame of over one year.

Akash Agarwal: I bought 500 shares of IRB Infrastructure at Rs 253. Should I hold or book profits?

Brijesh Singh: I would recommend the investor to hold on to the counter, with a stop loss of around Rs 245.

Vinay Katyal: I have 500 shares of Srei Infrastructure at Rs 83. What targets can I expect in the long-term?

Brijesh Singh: The investor can hold onto the stock with a stop loss of Rs 82.

Dheeraj Agrawal:​ What’s the expert view on the liquor space?

Vinit Bolinjkar: I think one should go with the market leader, United Spirits as the demand dynamics are very compelling.

Rajni: I am holding 1,100 shares of Gabriel India at Rs 78 with a long-term view. Please advise.

Vinit Bolinjkar: I think she should just hold onto the stock, the prices will come back eventually.

Qaiyoom Badi: I am holding Aditya Birla Capital at an average price of Rs 158 with a long-term view. What can I do with th investment?

Vinit Bolinjkar: I think RBL Bank is a better bet in the space.

Saurabh Pathak: I bought 500 shares of BPCL at Rs 300. Should I hold or book profits?

Vinit Bolinjkar: I think he should book profits, because we don’t know what’s going to happen to oil prices.

Sanu P Saji: I purchased Praj Industries at Rs 97 apiece. Should I hold it for a long-term or exit now?

Brijesh Singh: I would recommend to hold on to the stock, with a stop loss of Rs 89.
