PRANAV SANGHAVI says, Hello everyone. Welcome to the chat. Let's begin.

Tushar from Tanzania asked, Hi Pranav. Can i enter at present rates in Stocks like Orchid chemicals,Neyveli Lignite,MTNL,& Tata Tea .
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, It always pays to stick with the frontline stocks. These stocks are fundamentally strong. But buy them in a correction. The market is too heated right now to take fresh positions.
Rahul asked, hi Pranav
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Hi Rahul.
dharma asked, Hi pranav, holding 150 shares of tata tea at 782, is it ok to add more now

PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, All the 3 stocks should perform well in the long run as they are directly or indrirectly connected to the Infrastructure Sector. Cement companies especially will do exceptionally well over the next few years.

PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, It is a good hold or you could also book profits and reenter at lower rates in the correction.
Malhotra asked, When and How much downside of the Sensex you see in the overdue correction, and on which technical grounds.

ph asked, today it seems infosys is at its peak. pl advise whether i can sell my holding of 25 shares since last 4 yrs and book profit now and whether i will get a chance to buy the same at lower rate. thank you
