Siddharth asked, Pranav, pls advise re Indusind bank. I bought 900 shares at 45 some 8-9 years ago. Went abroad after that. Can I claim the dividend for the period not received by me ? Also, the share still hovers at 45. Should I take it as a dead stock & get out or keep holding ? Please advise. Thanks.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Dear Siddharth, yes if the shares were transferred after purchase in your name then you can claim dividend. But beyond a certain years the companies have to invest unclaimed dividend with the government. But of the last 4-5 years atleast you should receive. I think you could switch to a better banking stock.

PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, BPCL being an oil sector stock the price largely related to price movements in Crude Oil prices. It could remain volatile. HLL has beena laggard over the last few quarters and has underperformed. I would switch to another growth stock.

Shilpa asked, Pranav, I am long term investor. Please advice which shares to buy?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I would recommend frontline index stocks like Infosys, RIL, ITC, SBI, TCS etc. But the tech stocks should move once the rupee stabilizes. But invest on corrections and not on days when the markets are 100-200 points up.

RAKHI asked, PRANAV SIR GOOD MORNING I AM HOLDING 200 OF IDEA CELLULAR @117 PLZ TELL ME SHOULD I HOLD OR SHOULD I EXIT AT CURRENT LEVEL
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Good afternoon Rakhi, I think you could hold on to Idea if you are a longer term player. They already came in with the 3rd highest subscribers after Bharti and RelComm last month with 7 lac new subscriber additions. If you can hold for a longer term hold.

RAJIB asked, I procured Herohonda @ 735/- and Geometric Software @ 135/- please advise?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Hero Honda in the short term could be affected with the rise in interest rates which will hit the retail sales. So it could remain sluggish till the intrest rates move downwards. Geometric has given good results and can be held on to.
anand asked, Hi Pranav, I have Hindalco @213.5, ITC @196, Dabur india @104 and can hold for 1 or 2 years what do you suggest. Should I average these?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Hi Anand, Hindalco is surely a longer term play. It has spiked up only because of the takeover rumour. ITC also you have at the higher end of the price range that ITC is moving in. I would suggest to average when the price falls below 150 levels like it did a couple of months back. Dabur surely hold on.

ais_indore asked, sir u there'
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Yes.

PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I would say if the corporates keep on the results they have
show in the march quarter then we could test new highs before this year ends. But if due to various reasons like interest rate hike, Rupee appreciation the frontline stocks get affected then we could still continue in a range bound maaner.

joe asked, Sir, I'm holding 100 shares of Infosys @2010 Whats the future prospects for this.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Till the Rupee appreciates the stock should remain sluggish. Also a lot will depend on the june quarter results. If the weak dollar has indeed affected the results then there could be more weakness. But it is a short term factor, on a longer term Infosys should perform well.

prafulmehta asked, Sir, r u in opinion that mkt may see 12000-12500?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I don't think the markets could break 12,500. A correction that sharp will really shake up the market. But I don't see any reason for such a sharp correction.
viraj asked, hiiiiiiiiiii
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Hi Viraj, what is your query?
rohit asked, there is lot of hype that LNT will touch 4000 by 2008 end? whats your intake about it? pls
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I think the Capital of the company is only around 50 odd crores. Its March ending profits were 1400 crores. Its reserves are over 4500 crores. And it has an order book of over 10,000 crores for the next 5 years. So keeping this in mind I think L&T should outperform the market.
navin asked, Hello Mr. Pranav, What U suggest to do at this level of market? keep invested or shall one take out all the money from the market and wait for the big correction, which is expected?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, If you are a longer term player then minor corrections should not bother you. If you wish to make money then you could exit at higher levels and then get in during the corrections. But what will be the peak of the market no one can predict.
mahesh asked, hi pranav what is your opinion about recent icici fpo?

Pradeep asked, I have Real Estate players like Parasvanth(20), Indiabulls(20), Unitech (10), should I keep them. and also give your valuable suggestion on Infosys and TCS
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, You could hold on to Indiabulls, Unitech. Infy and TCS are underperforming the markets due to the weakening of the dollar. Eventually they should start moving once they have been able to make adjustments to their pricing or the Rupee weakens.
