Rohith Adiga: I am a starter in the stock market and have been trading since the last 10 months.

I have listed the stocks I have purchased. Advise me as to whether I should buy additional stock, hold or sell.

I am also looking for a short term plan of 6-10 months. Please suggest from either my existing stocks or new stocks for short term gain. I am planning to invest Rs 1-2 lakhs.

Also, I would like to know when to purchase the additional stock -- when it's growing or when there is a dip.

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.
