In this episode, Sameet Chavan of Angel Broking and Vikas Sethi of Sethi Finmart Raymond, Laurus Labs, Marico and much more.

Watch the full conversation here:

Here are the edited excerpts form the conversation:

Parveen Gulati: I hold 500 shares of NCC at Rs 114 and 500 shares of Marico at Rs 345. Can I expect a technical breakout?

Sameet Chavan: If the stock manages to surpass Rs 121 levels and sustains above that, we can term it as a technical breakout and in that scenario, the stock can hit Rs 132 levels.

On Marico, there was a breakout seen in this counter. This stock has a good buying interest and any dip around Rs 335 levels could be a good buying opportunity. We expect Marico to touch around Rs 350-358 in near term.

Satya Subhash: When can one enter KNR Construction with a long-term view?

Vikas Sethi: One can buy KNR Construction at current levels with a long-term view.

Shiva Sindhur: I want to invest in Raymond, Laurus Labs and Purvankara with a three-year view. Please advise.

Vikas Sethi: I prefer Raymond and Laurus Labs. I suggest you look at Sobha Developers, Sunteck Realty and Ajmera Developers instead of Purvankara.

S Chatterjee: I sold Bajaj Finance at Rs 1,922 recently. Can I enter the stock again at current levels? Also, Can I enter Avanti Feeds at current levels?

Vikas Sethi: For Bajaj Finance, it is good to enter at current levels. You can expect about 5-6 percent correction in near term. However, it should be a problem if you have a long-term view. You can invest in Avanti Feeds in a staggered manner at current levels.

Vivek: Can you please provide a one-year view on NBCC?

Sameet Chavan: One can enter the stock at Rs 75-80 levels. Hold on to the stock if you have already invested since the downside is limited.

Satish: I bought 170 shares of HAL and the current price is 10 percent lower than your buying price. What are your views on HAL?

Vikas Sethi: I suggest you hold on to the stock if you have a long-term view.

Nandakishore: I hold shares in Electrosteel Steels? Please advise.

Vikas Sethi: If the stock is de-listed, it does not mean that the stock will not be reflected in your de-mat account. One cannot do anything with the stock since it is de-listed.

Aditya Nair: Can I enter MCX India at current levels with a long-term view?

Sameet Chavan: We have been recommending our clients to buy at Rs 700 levels. One can hold on with a short-term view with a strict stop-loss below Rs 800.

Sandeep Joshi: What are your views on Weizmann Forex?

Vikas Sethi: I suggest you exit the stock and book losses.

Arvind Kumar: What are your views on Marksans Pharma, Suzlon Energy and RattanIndia Power?

Sameet Chavan: I suggest you avoid these stocks. I suggest you invest in stocks like Lupin.

Joshua Anand: I bought 600 shares of Himadri Speciality Chemicals at Rs 170 with a five-year view. Please advice. Also, please advise if this the right time to enter Granules India.

Sameet Chavan: I prefer Stocks like Lupin and Dr. Reddy’s Lab instead of Granules. Wait for a decent dip to happen in Granules India if you still want to invest in Granules India. You can start investing at Rs 80 levels in a staggered manner.

Vikas Sethi: In regards to Himadri Speciality, I suggest you hold on to the stock.

Ankit Mishra: I bought 100 shares of Motilal Oswal at Rs 1,160. What is your six-month view on the stock?

Sameet Chavan: You can hold on to the stock with a stop-loss of Rs 850.
