'Diversify investments, follow correction'

May 30, 2007 15:31 IST
PRANAV SANGHAVI says, Hello everyone and welcome to the chat. Let's get started.

Nt asked, what's visibility for UCO Bank in next 6 months.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers,  at 2007-05-30 13:59:31I think the banking stocks were underperforming due to the intrest hike issue but over a longer term they should perform well. If inflation does come under control we could see the interest rates slowly move downwards thereby boosting credit offtake.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, With the continuous Rupee appreciation most of the tech stocks are underperforming. So if you are a longer term player then you can look at it.
siva asked, Which shares buy now ..i have to invest 5 to 6 Lac..or after correction i can invest ..which is better

Pravav, Good afternoon. In the current markets should we accumulate shares or do we square off and buy when the markets have corrected.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, If you are making profits it is always advisable to book profits when markets are close to their all time highs. You can always buy back into the stock when the markets correct.
raj asked, Hi
Pranav, one thing is always said abt market is we have to play long term. Second when we purchase shares both from primary and secondary we pay heavy premium to the organization say for example TCS shares the face value is Rs.1 but the issue price was around Rs.1000/-, how do we make sure we are getting return. Even if the company declare divided it will be on Rs.1/- how shld we take into a/c that
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, The dividend percent is always on the Face Value of the shares. And the rate of dividend has to be calculated in relation to your acquisition price of the stock.
ravi asked, Hi
Pravav, Can u suggest any Do's and Dont's for Day traders?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, One thing I have learnt is you HAVE to be extremely strict with your stop losses. Second, always give full attention to the markets and dablle in day trading if you already have a day job. Third, choose stocks with your study and not what your neighbor in the train or your friends uncle thinks its good.
on that note, I bid all of you good bye and hope to see you'll next week. Bye.

Chat with Pranav every week!
