Edited excerpts from the conversation:

Sanjay Dongre: I have 3,000 shares of ICICI Securities from the IPO. Should I continue to hold on to it or invest in ITC?

Parthiv Shah:The valuations of ICICI Securities at the current level do not seem alright to me. I would recommend one to exit this stock and instead invest in ITC and Bharat Forge.

Romil Rawat: I bought shares of TCS at Rs 1,820 apiece. Shall I participate in the buyback?

Parthiv Shah: I would recommend one to hold on to their shares in TCS since I am bullish on this stock and it will do well in the long-run.

T.Sanmugan: What is the prospect of Exide Industries and Saregama? Is it a good idea to buy these at the current level?

Parthiv Shah: I am positive about Exide and it is doing well across all parameters. I would recommend one to hold on to the stock with a long-term view. I would recommend one to avoid the Saregama stock.

R.Balakrishnan: With a two-month view, is JK Lakshmi Cement placed well on the charts at the current level?

Parthiv Shah: This stock has done well and one can continue to hold on to the stock. I would recommend one to increase their time horizon to at least 6-12 months.

Abhijit Pathak: The stock has resistance near the Rs 350 level and it is a bullish sign for the stock if it closes there.

Akash: I have 2,000 shares of RBL Bank at Rs 566 apiece. What should I do with my investment? I am fine with holding on to the shares for longer as well.

Parthiv Shah: I would recommend one to enter the stock at the Rs 580-Rs 585 level. One should avoid entering the stock at the current level.

Ram Hegde: What is the target price for Kotak Mahindra Bank for the September series?

Abhijit Pathak: I expect the stock to give a pull-back in September. The Rs 1,330 level is a good level.

Melwyn: I have 20 shares of Glenmark Pharma at Rs 610 apiece. I have been holding on to the stock for 11 months, now. Should I hold on or sell it?

Abhijit Pathak: This is not a good time to book profits, but one can book partial profits. I am bullish about the stock and one can keep a stop-loss of Rs 650.

Raj Shah: I bought 2,500 shares of NESCO at Rs 440 apiece with a five-year view. Should I add more at the current level?

Parthiv Shah: I would recommend one to add more shares of this stock in bits. One can use the stock’s temporary weakness to add more.

Imran: Can I buy Titan at the current level, with a two-three year time period?

Parthiv Shah: This is a good stock and one can buy the shares of this stock at the current level with a long-term view.

Mani Murugan: I bought 400 shares of Bharatr Electronics at Rs 125 apiece. Should I hold, average or exit at the current level?

Abhijit Pathak: I would recommend one to hold on to the stock with a stop-loss below Rs 110.

Harshvardhan: What are some good trading strategies with a two-three month time period?

Abhijit Pathak: I would recommend one to invest in the Maruti Suzuki stock.

Raja Sankar: I wish to invest Rs 2 lakh in Dabur or Emami with a long-term view. What should I do?

Parthiv Shah: Dabur has sustained the competition in the FMCG sector and performed well. This is a good stock to hold on to.

Emami is a good group, too. Both the stocks are a good bet and one can invest in either of the stocks.

Rathina: I have 100 shares of SpiceJet at Rs 132 apiece with a one-year view. Should I hold on to the stock or add more shares?

Parthiv Shah: This is a good opportunity to add on to the aviation stocks. I would recommend one to invest in a staggering manner and not all at once.

Abhijit Pathak: I would recommend one to add on to the stock with a long-term view. Short-term investors may hold on to the stock with a stop-loss of Rs 75.

Salil: I have 265 shares of Indusind bank at Rs 1,454. I have been adding eight shares in this stock every month. I am also holding 108 shares of HDFC Bank at Rs 1,960 apiece. I have ten-year time horizon. Is SIP the best way to invest in these stocks?

Parthiv Shah: These are two great stocks with the time period in time. SIP is a very nice way to invest in these stocks. I would recommend one to invest in Nestle, P&G, and other sectors like the pharmaceutical sectors with a SIP approach.

Puneet: Can I buy Magma Fincorp at the current level with a two-three year view?

Parthiv Shah:I would recommend one to hold on to the L&T Finance Holding stock.

Krish: I have bought shares of Kokuyo Camlin at Rs 121 apiece with a three-month view. What do I do?

Abhijit Pathak:I would recommend one to book profits on half the stocks and hold on to the other half with a stop-loss of Rs 130.

Sanket Gade: I have 100 shares of Tata Motors at Rs 269 apiece with a five-seven year view. What should I do?

Patrhiv Shah: I would recommend one to wait and monitor the stock. One should hold on to the stock with a two-three year time frame.

Analyst disclosures: Both the analysts do not hold any stocks that were discussed today.
