Watch the full conversation here:

BJ Rao: I hold 1,000 shares of Reliance Capital at RS 482 since 2008. Can I hold it for five more years?

Vikas: Holding for another five years is not recommended. The investor should be exiting the stock. I recommend a sell.

Girish Patil: I need a near-term view on Cadila Health. I have bought the shares at Rs 424.

Jignesh: Cadila Health is a good stock to invest in. He should keep a stop-loss at Rs 390. The target for the next 3-4 months is Rs 465-470 levels.

Mayank Saraf: I need a short-term target for Talbros Auto.

Jignesh: The stop loss should be at Rs 285. The target for short-term should be Rs 325-330 levels.

Deepak Batra: I need a long-term view on LT Foods.

Vikas: I would recommend a hold but not fresh buying at current levels.

Puneet Nanda: Can I buy Kotak Mahindra Bank with a long-term horizon?

Vikas: It can be entered at current levels. The asset quality is much better than other private-sector banks.

M Kumar: I hold 250 shares of Phillips Carbon at an average of Rs 237. I need a short-term view?

Jignesh: The stock looks strong on charts; Rs 230 is the stop-loss. And , it can reach the earlier highs of Rs 280.

Chandra Sekar: I own 45 shares of HUL bought at Rs 1,743. Please advice.

Jignesh: Stop-loss of Rs 1,500 is advised and a target of Rs 1,750 is expected for medium to long-term.

Amit Kedia: I want to invest Rs 5 lakh in the next five years.  Which are the five good companies to invest in?

Vikas: One needs to invest in good quality large cap stocks. I would recommend Reliance Industries, Sun Pharma, HCL Technologies, Bajaj Finance and ITC.

Saurav Pathak: Is it a good time to invest in L&T Finance with a short-term view?

Jignesh: It is a recommend for both short and long term. Rs 155 is a good support for short-term and his first level of targets should be Rs 185-190 levels.

Risabh Tiwari: I have bought 500 shares of Mahindra CIE for short-term at Rs 232. Should I hold or book profits?

Jignesh: The short-term target should be Rs 305-310 but I recommend at least 50 percent profit booking at current levels.

Bhavani Shankar: I hold 500 shares of Suven Life. What is your advise for a two-month investment period?

Jignesh: It is taken an unprecedented rally in last three to four years. I would recommend to book profits.

Udheek Sood: I hold 3,000 shares of Rs 38 of Firstsource Solutions. What is your view for next three to five years?

Vikas: It is a good quality stock. He can continue to hold on to the stock at current levels.

Sharath: I have bought Adani Enterprises at Rs 139. Should I exit or hold?

Jignesh: It has fluctuated in the last few days. The highest level of Rs 171 should be the target and Rs 139 should be the stop-loss. The stock is not good for long-term as it has shot up very quickly as well in the recent past.
