Srinu Kodi: I have been seeing your opinion on many people's portfolios and I am thankful for your unbiased review.

Recently, I have purchased these stocks with some conviction, wrt long term like 2-3 years as of now or more. I would like to have your view once if possible.

I am not in panic mode looking at market conditions as of now as I know these are quality stocks I have invested in.

Note: I purchased Gland Pharma for the short term recently as I see some potential till the time Covid is there, as it is doing vaccine manufacturing for Sputnik. I am thinking about profits for Gland Pharma.

Could you please tell me if I can hold this or sell after it reaches Rs 2,800 level? Please tell me if I can hold this for the long term.

Rohith Adiga: I am a starter in the stock market and trading from the last six months. Below is the list of stocks I have purchased. Advise me about buying additional stock, or holding or selling.

I am also looking for a short term plan of 6-10 months starting from June. Please suggest from my existing stock list or a new stock for short term gain. Also would like to know when to purchase the additional stock, when it's growing or when it dips.

For example, I purchased 50 shares of Tata Motors @ Rs 124, then added another 25 when it went to @ Rs 185 and again purchased 10 @ Rs 290. Now my average pricing is @ Rs 244.
