Edited excerpts from the conversation:

Youtube User: What is the view on Dabur India?

Sandeep Jain: FMCG stocks look quite expensive. I think ITC is a better bet and their valuations are attractive. But one can hold on the stock, fresh buying is not recommended.

Ram Hedge: Is it a good time to be bullish on Yes Bank with a time target for October?

Sameet Chavan: Yes if the time horizon is one to two months. Price-wise, it’s at the right point. Rs 330-335 is a strong support but I expect Rs 375-385 to be re-tested very soon.

Gaurav Jaggi: I need a view on BF Utilities.

Sandeep Jain: One can certainly hold on to the stock as it’s an under-performer.

Jithendra: I hold 75 shares of Quess Corp bought at Rs 750 with three to four years as time horizon. What should I do?

Sandeep Jain: Fundamentally, the stock is growing and there are few companies in this space. So, you can hold on and accumulate if it corrects Rs 50-100 more.

Nikhil: Do MCX and Voltas make for good opportunity at current levels?

Sameet Chavan: We are a little upbeat on MCX despite consolidation. Rs 800-805 seems to be a very strong support. Keep a stop-loss at Rs 785 and a positional target of Rs 855-875.

Consolidation is clearly on the cards for Voltas. Soon it can reach its recent highs of Rs 640. At Rs 590-595 will have a conviction to go long.

Abhishek Gupta: Which is the best IT stock to look at with a long-term view?

Sandeep Jain: Tech Mahindra in the larger cap has some steam left.  I like Firstsource in the mid-cap space. The growth numbers and valuations are attractive and the rupee depreciation is a big benefit. One can also enter Hinduja Global once it comes down.

Puneet Nanda: Should I enter Persistent Systems at current levels with a one-year perspective?

Sameet Chavan: One should wait for a breakout to happen. Beyond Rs 880, the stock can give a strong momentum towards Rs 950-955 levels.

Anand Mishra: I entered Asian Paints at Rs 1,823. My view is for two years. What is your advice?

Sandeep Jain: The corrections are good time to enter. Asian Paints its not cheap, so wait to make a fresh entry. Those who already possess the shares should hold on.

Rajul Ghalla: I have bought Bharat Electronics at Rs 121. What should be my strategy?

Sameet Chavan: It’s reaching an important support zone of Rs 107-110. It has the potential to move immediately towards at least Rs 120-135 thereafter. Keep a stop-loss of Rs 106.

Jatin: I hold 108 shares of Glenmark Pharma purchased at Rs 608. Should I book profits? And what are your views on Godrej Agrovet?

Sameet Chavan: We are quite upbeat on the entire pharma space. Glenmark looks really good. Keep a stop-loss at Rs 640 and it can head towards Rs 700-720. I would avoid Godrej Agrovet at current levels due to declines.

Viewer: What are the views on Motherson Sumi and Federal Bank?

Sameet Chavan: Motherson Sumi is on the consolidation mode. Rs 310-312 are the trigger points to watch out for. Federal Bank has been under-performing. I would go for RBL Bank instead in the mid-cap banking space. Rs 590 is a very good buying opportunity.

Arif Patel: I’m holding 500 shares of Finolex Cables for the last two years with a long-term view. What should I do?

Sandeep Jain: It has great numbers and brand equity. If it corrects 5-7 percent further, one could go averaging. One can hold on at current levels without any worry.

Analyst disclosures: Both analysts don’t hold any stock that were discussed today.
