'Always buy a fund at correction'

February 07, 2007 13:38 IST
PRANAV SANGHAVI says, Good afternoon everyone. Let's begin the chat.

rach asked, hello sir, what is PE ratio how you calculate it and for day trading calculation of resistence and support level is useful or not
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Hello, basically PE ratio is the price of the company divided by the EPS of the company. If the PE ratio is below the Index average then it could signal a buy and vice versa.
praveen asked, whether we can see a huge correction post budget
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, The market has run up substantially. So a correction could not be ruled out. When is the question and how much. Although I do not feel it will correct very drastically.
Alwa asked, What is your take on mid cap stocks. Most of them are still languishing
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, The quality midcap stocks have already started moving up. In the May correction last year the midcap stocks were the worst hit. So it will take some time before they spurce up as the frontline stocks themselves are giving such handsome returns to investors.
malcolm asked, Hi. and good morning.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Hi Malcolm and good afternoon to you too.
rach asked, pls suggest some good books on stock market (including day trading)
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, There are tons of books one could study. The Intelligent Investor by Ben Graham is a good one amongst others.
gssharma asked, mr sanghavi,do you think there will be some correction expected tomorrow or day after I want to buy good shares .Tell me which ones ppl
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, It is a good idea to wait for the correction to get in as the market seems to be heated. But predicting when the correction will come is not possible.
malcolm asked, Iam a long term investor. Should I wait now for a correction which is overdue before the budget or should I buy some stock. Pls. suggest if yes which stocks..a couple of them.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Yes it would be wise to wait for the correction. You could look at the quality frontline stocks in the cement, tech, infrastructure, banking sectors.
Raj asked, Hi Sir, I want to open a Dmat account.So from which bank/financial company should i open it.Which of them is the best.

malcolm asked, How can I buy shares in international markets. what is the procedure and who to contact...
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, A resident Indian is allowed an outflow of up to US$ 25,000 per calendar year by RBI. You will need to contact brokers like Geojit and First Global who could help you.
malcolm asked, Iam interested in commodity trading. How can I make a begining.. what is the procedure. Pls. advice.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Similar to opening a stock trading account you will have to open a Commodity trading account.

P-Dinesh asked, Why has Tata Steel price gone down after takover? Is it wise to buy Tata Steel at current levels? I want to stay invested for 6 months.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Normally world over because of the notional burden that comes with an acquisition of a much larger company the acquiring company always moves downwards. On a long term basis TISCO should do well but in the short term it may not give you the returns you may be expecting.
siya asked, Hi, why parsvnath price day by day down?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, It could be rationalising the price or in a corrective or consolidative mode.
meghanadhudu asked, I purchase 400 balrampur chinni on 120/- what about this script please tell me
