Advise me on HDFC Life, Pidilite & Granules India. What will be the best level to enter in these three shares? Also recommend two companies with 3-9 months prospective.

Ajit Mishra:

 

HDFCLIFE: It’s looking strong on short-term chart, trading near its record high and has the potential to test 670+ mark. Support is at 610.

PIDILITIND: It has been showing strength despite volatility in the broader market. One can hold long position with SL at 1370 and target at 1440

GRANULES: It has been consolidating in a zone for past three months or so while holding firmly above the support zone of multiple moving averages on daily chart. Existing long can be hold with strict SL at 110 for the target of 165.

 

For 3-9 months of horizon, one can take fresh longs at GSPL and TECHM.
