'Stick with frontline stocks'

July 04, 2006 14:38 IST
PRANAV SANGHAVI says, Hello everyone, lets begin the chat.

vkkhoda asked, What is yr opinion about:HOCL,Aegis,Int. combustion,clutch auto,indraprastha Gas,surya roshni.Thanks
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, All of them are good midcap stocks.
JH asked, is mr pranav here?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Yes I am here.
zion asked, hi, when experts talk about long term investemnt in stocks,i need to clarify this doubt. Suppose i hold to some stocks for 4-5 years and when i decide to sell them, if the market has gone down dramatically down, what is the whole purpose of holding on to them for these yeasr? how can i avoid this?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Well, in the four to five years that you have held on the markets will surely be at a higher level than what you had purchased at even after a great fall at that time. Say for example, If you had bought in 2002-2003 when the Index was around 3000, and you decided to sell in 2006 the index at its lows of 8,000 levels is more than double than that of the 2002-03 levels.
abhijit asked, I have 1000 allahabad bank shares @ 70. what is your opinion on that?

TUSHAR asked, Mr. pranav, please give your opinion about TCS, ITC and RPL.

PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, All infrastructure and construction companies should do well. If you stick with the frontline stocks your portfolio will perform better.
JH asked, Hi pranav..What do you suggest..Is it better to trade online or is it better to trade through brokerage firm. who charges less & what other factors are involved
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Normally, as a thumb rule the online trade costs less.
ii asked, Hi, is DSP merril Lynch a good option for SIP?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Yes DSP Merrill Lynch has a good SIP on offer.
JH asked, can u please say what exactly is short term, medium term and long term
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I cannot define short term for a particular investor. For me short term is less than a month. For some it could be one day. For me medium term would be six to nine months and one to two years would define long term.
Litaka asked, what is the future of Litaka Pharma Shares?

bigbull asked, when infosys gives bonus of 1:1 will its stock price become half?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Not necessarily. On a longer term it would return back to its current price. Like in 2003 they gave a 3:1 bonus. The rate at that time was 4,500. Today it is 3,000. Post bonus in 2003 it did go to 1200 or 1500 if am not mistaken. But hold on.
Tarun asked, Your rating for Relinace Industries & Reliance Petroleum ?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, According to me, RIL is a hold/buy, RPL could be looked at with a very long term outlook with all news regarding the company remaining constant.
Nitin asked, Hi Pranav, can explain why this sudden drop in volumes is seen in the markets
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I think the investor confindence is shaken and also because there is no clear direction that the markets have taken. Its extremely choppy. Even the FII's figures, albiet being positive are miniscule.
sailesh asked, Hi Pranav...I have 2000 shares of LG Brothers which is curently trading @ Rs 25. What would be the long term prespective on this one....should i hold?

JH asked, I want to earn about 15 k per month from stock market. How much amount do i actually need to invest
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Only if you are active trader and spend a good part of your day in trading should you get into day trading. But to earn a fixed amount per month you could trade in the Index stocks either in the Futures or Equity Segments. You would need atleast 20 times that amount.
Raj Radhew asked, Hi Pranav! I m fresher in stock markets, If possible for u, can u please suggest me sum good stocks for long term!!!!!!!!!! Regards, Raj Radhewa

PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I don't know about REI Agro, but hold on to the former two.
Prashant asked, How do you see short term prospects for Bonus Stocks - Infosys, TCS, Stayam & L&T. Is there any point enetering them for short term gains at this level
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, They have already started appreciating since the lows at the announcement levels. But they are all good long term buys so they could be looked at for getting the bonus shares and staying invested.
invetor asked, I hold 175 nos of GAIL at 275. Is it worth holding long term ? Should I invest more in this stock in declines?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, GAIL looks attractive below 220 levels buy on declines. But the Oil Subsidy burden could dampen its performance marginally.
invetor asked, Can I enter State bank and Infy at current levels ? What are long term prospects ?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Yes you could. SBI is trading between a 6-8 PE. And Infy is cum bonus. Long term prospects for both look good.

Dinyar asked, Pranav do you think that the Share Market has stabilised and its a good time to invest in Nifty Futures?
