Edited Excerpts From The Conversation:

Rangarajan Balakrishnan: I bought Federal Bank at Rs 126 apiece. What strategy should I stick to? Also, does it make sense to enter Petronet LNG at the current level?

Ashish Kelkar:  I would recommend one to hold on to the Federal Bank stock with a stop-loss of Rs 79.80 on a closing basis.

One can buy the Petronet LNG stock at the current level with a stop-loss of Rs 222.

Pratik Patil: What is your fundamental view on NCC?

Parthiv Shah: This stock look good and I am bullish on it for the next two years.

Nikhil: What is your technical view on Cadila Healthcare?

Ashish Kelkar: I am skeptical about this stock. Till the stock is below the Rs 386 level, one should not buy the stock. The first target should be Rs 410, with a stop-loss of Rs 375. One should refrain from making a fresh entry at the current level.

Gunasekaran: Can I invest in Equitas Holdings and Godrej Properties with a five-year view?

Parthiv Shah: For Equitas Holding, it would be advisable to hold on to the stock.

Godrej Properties is one of the nest stocks in the real-estate space. One can invest or hold on to this stock with a long-term view.

Puneet: I have 5,000 shares of GMR Infra. Will the GMR Airport IPO help me in any way?

Parthiv Shah: If the Airport vertical gets listed, one should invest in it.

Udeeksh Sood: What is your view on JSW Steel? I have 500 shares of the stock at Rs 290 apiece. Should I keep holding?

Ashish Kelkar: I would recommend one to have a proper breakout on the chart. One should continue to hold on to the stock with a stop-loss of Rs 310.

Alex: At what level should I consider investing in Ester Industries?

Ashish Kelkar: I would recommend one to abstain from a fresh entry into this stock at the current level. One may continue to hold on to the stock with a stop-loss of Rs 47 on a closing basis.

Salman Khan: What is your view on L&T, with the buyback talks in perspective?

Parthiv Shah: This is a good stock with very good return prospects owing to their policies and ventures.

Vijay: I have 500 shares of Srikalahasti Pipes at Rs 331 apiece. Should I hold or book losses?

Parthiv Shah: It is better if one invests in Tata Metalliks. I would recommend one to exit this stock and invest the money elsewhere.

Bharath: What is your technical view on Granules with a short-term perspective?

Ashish Kelkar: I would recommend one to hold on to the stock with a stop-loss of Rs 103.

Sudarshan: What is your view on TVS Motor with a long-term view?

Parthiv Shah: At the current point, I would recommend one to consider Bajaj Auto.

Arvind B: I wish to start systematic investment plans in Suven Lifesciences and Petronet LNG. Are these two good or would you recommend something else?

Parthiv Shah: Suven is a good stock to park your SIPs. I would recommend one to have SIPs in Reliance Industries over Petronet LNG.

Maitreyee: I need a five-year view on Sterlite Tech.

Parthiv Shah: The demand and scale of this company is very positive and ever-expanding. The valuation seems fine with a five-year view and one can continue to hold on to the stock.

Harshavardhan: What is your technical view on Dilip Buildcon?

Ashish Kelkar: I would recommend on to hold on to the stock till it is at the Rs 820 level.
