Ajit Mishra, vice president, Research, Religare Broking, answers your queries:

Anivish khanna: I am a new investor in the stock market like many others during this pandemic. Actually i started investing last year only. Till now i have many stocks in my portfolio and i am a long term investor with average risk taking ability. One of my main concerns is not able to book profits when my stocks are in positive. I am unsure whether to stay or leave and most often i keep staying. 

I also want you to advice of possible to let me know if i can tweak my portfolio a little. Like, selling one or two shares that i hold and buying more of what i already hold. (If this counts as a good decision). I am sharing a list of stocks that i hold and i would like to have your view on the following. I hope to receive a positive response from your side as soon as possible.
