Tech stocks look lucrative now

July 04, 2007 13:34 IST
PRANAV SANGHAVI says, Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the chat. Let's begin.

MANOJ asked, RPL TARGET
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers,  at 2007-07-04 11:56:48RPL has moved up handsomely over the past 3 months. As the date of commercial production of the refinery will get closer so will the price move higher.
Manish asked, What to buy for long term investment purpose
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I would look at some of the large cap stocks which are below the index PE and who are giving 25% plus annual growht rates. Stocks llike Infosys, SBI, L&T etc. You could look at some of the mid cap stocks too like IDFC, Unitech. But getting in at an all time high is not advisable.
Amit asked,  Suggest the future of VISINF... I want to get rid of it. The cost price was 36.37. shell I average out or book the loss and exit or wait for some more time
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I don't follow that stock but if it is a penny stock and you are in profits I would recommend booking the profits and getting into a quality stock.
Seeker asked, Suggest the future of TVTNET... I want to get rid of it. The cost price was 149. shell I average out or book the loss and exit or wait for some more time
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, If you can hold for a longer term then you could look at averaging out. Otherwis eyou could book a loss and switch to a growth stock.
Kiran asked, I am beginner,want to understand what should i buy
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I would advise first take on a few basic courses being offered by the training institutes of both the stock exchanges BSE & NSE. If you are a new comer it is advisable to stick with frontline index stocks which will be lesser affected should there be a correction.
Seeker asked, SAIL future cp is 147
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I don't foresee a stagnation in demand of steel in the future so I see SAIl rising steadily over the next few years. Although steel is a commodity stock so its outcome would also depend on the ruling commodity prices.
SHIRISH asked, What is the future prospects of RNRL and also adivice me at what price we should enter in the RPL. i have to invest 50000 in rpl
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, RNRL should rise steadily but we need to watch its next few quarterly results. RPL should see substantial returns once the commercial production goes on stream.
sudha asked, Sir, Good morning, how do u see the market now?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, The markets are at an all time high and I see a correction if the index PE hits something like 20 or 21. Beyond that I think the June quarter result also shall act as a catalyst.
pras asked, Hi Pranav, Can you suggest the outlook for k.c.p cement for next 2 years
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Hi Pras, I don't follow that stock so I won't be able to help you.
Avinash asked, Do you suggest to buy 3i Infotech Ltd. at this point? Whats 3-6 month prediction for Infosys shares?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, It is a strong performer but due to the Rupee depreciation all the tech stocks including Infosys may underperform the markets in the short term. But going by their past performance I would surely hold on to Infosys or look at buying on further dips as a contrarian pick.
vandana asked, hi .....what abt bharat forge , ITC and greaves cotton..........i can hold for at least 7-8 years
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Bharat Forge and ITC are fundamentally extremely strong stocks. With a 7-8 year outlook you could surely hold on and you shoudl see very sizable returns.
d asked, Hi Pranav,What do u say abt current IPO market coming one after one.Should we invest in it?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I think most of the issue are listing at a premium especially Vishal Retail which listed today nearly 3 times its issue price. One should pick qwuality stocks after studying the prospectus.
sudha asked, I have Unitech, TCS & Infosys at higher rates. What u suggest now - whether to buy at lower level or just wait & watch. What should I do with Indianbull real estate, Parasvanth, Gujarat Ambuja, ICICI Bank -
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, you could buy those stcks at lower prices to average out and hold for another 3-6 months. You could hold on to ICICI, Guj Amb and Indiabulls.
arvindpundri asked, i have purchased 125 shares of ITC in 158/- per share. what is the future of this share? for how long time i should hold this?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, It is a strong stock fundamentally but the FMCGstocks have underperformed over the past few months. You should see a decent return over a longer term of 6-12 months.

smita asked, Dear Sir, What about IFCI it will go further or not and pls. tell me the target of IFCI
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I think IFCI is already given an EPS of around Rs. 8. I think there is still room for the price to move up. Plus there are talks of a stake sale and they are taking great efforts to reduce their NPA's.

prasad asked, hello what is future of infossys
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Infosys outcome depends a lot on the way the Dollar moves. Eventually Infosys will come out with a strategy to overcome the dollar weakening. Post that it should move up a I am sure their growth will not get hampered.
