Sam asked, I believe, the upsurge in market is due to vast base of investers who have come up due to trading made convenient to be operated from your home and once it will start falling, panic selling from this vast clientale will again bring it to level of 7-8 thousand. Do you agree???
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I do not agree. The fundamental story going for India is way too strong and the market is shifting towards becoming a market of stronger and larger players like FII's and Mutual Funds, that is why I keep recommending to to invest through them also. I strongly feel the market would not touch the 7000 levels again.

magnumravi asked, hello mr sanghavi is this the right time for a fresher to enter the market.....do u hope that this bull run will continue till the budget
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Hello Magnumravi, when market is around 14,000 even the older players are extremely cautious. So you would need to be double sure before getting into a stock. I think our market is in a secular bull run period which should last for atleast 3 to 5 years. But timely corrections are a part of the game.
chatali asked, Good Afternoon. How are you? I have been waiting for investment to large cap Mutual Fund but still Bull Run is on. Could you suggest me what to do now? Should I wait for next 2-3 months?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, You could wait for a month or so and invest at the time of correction.
Good asked, Pls suggest any stocks to buy at this moment?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I have suggested a few in my earlier replies in this chat.
rakesh asked, The present PE for the market is above 22, historically we have been around 17. Does it not mean that correction to 11000 levels is inevitable?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Historically we have always been used to P/E ratios of 10 to 12 not 17. It is only over the last year and a half that our market has accepted levels of 15 and above. We are not at 22 levels yet but getting there fast. A correction should be in the offing.

amit asked, Hi, What PE/EPS should one prefer when investing. What is the importance of PE ratio
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Any frontline scrip which is trading at a P/E ratio lesser than the Index P/E then it could be worth investing. P/E ratio is one of the fundamental criteria in valuing a scrip. The lower the better.
binu asked, how much do you think will the indexes go to after the correction due in next year??
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, If the companies keep performing the way they have been a 20 to 30% growth in the Index cannot be ruled out.
chatali asked, It's my fervent belief that I should buy mutual fund as I have no time to spare on it and also don't have an ounce of knowledge on stock dealing. Am I right or should I buy stock following this chat room?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, You should invest through Mutual Funds. But you will need to study the funds and the fund manager. They are crucial before investing into MF's. Do not go on advice received from anyone. Always do your homework, however sure the tip off may be.
chitra asked, there was a sudden interest in sugar sector yesterday.do you think the trend will continue?or its just a temporary phase?will it be profitable to go short on stocks like balrampur chin and bajaj hindustan?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, As I had mentioned earlier if the ban is lifted on sugar companies for exports then they should see some interest from market players. I would not advice going short on the stocks as they have been strong performers over the past and should continue to do so.

PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, All the Index stocks have to go down in a correction. Other stocks may go even more as in the May correction the midcaps were badly hit. But I would not rule out a 5 to 7% correction.

Dinyar asked, Hi Pranav is it true that no one can profit from Daily trading futures? Share Trading is like building a castle of cards one floor at a time but when it falls it destroys the whole castle. How far is techical analysis safe?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, It is not completely true but you need to be highly qualified trader to make money by trading daily. Also you must have atleast 4 to 5 wqualities required for a seasoned trader like being strict with stop losses etc. I am not a technical analyst so I cannot comment how safe it is, but I believe if the company is fundamentally strong then you can't go wrong.
Anil Grover asked, Pranav, I am never sure when to exit a stock, analysts always recomment what to buy and what to hold..but very few analyst tell what and when to exit.in the big stocks can you recommend what can be exitted...
