March 14, 2007 13:14 IST
PRANAV SANGHAVI says, Good afternoon everyone and welcome. Let's begin.

Stockwhat asked, Why is the stocks behave like insane in these days? A day the stock is up and the other day it is very much down. See today for instance what is the reason for this misbehaviour of stocks?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers,  at 2007-03-14 12:07:39As I had mentioned in my earlier chats, the markets will remain volatile for a while. There are a lot of factors affecting the markets. The US economy, Yen carry trade and ofcourse the global markets performance. Today the markets have fallen on the weak subprime mortgage numbers in the housing sector that the US announced yesterday which sent not only the DOW and NASDAQ down but also all the asian and emerging markets.

sampath asked, is it safe to invest in low range shares for intraday trade.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Do you mean Low Cap stocks or Stocks which have a low intra day price range? In the current market scenario especially, I would advise to abstain from intra day trading totally as there is a good chance that you will burn your fingers due to the extremely volatile markets.
gaurav k asked, Dear Pranav Sir, Good afternoon. please let me know long temr outlook for a period 1-2 year of Cairns india (Rs 160*200), Reliance Petro(Rs 70*500) & Jubliant organsys(100*Rs 230). . kindly advice.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Dear Gaurav, a very good afternoon to you too. Cairns has made a lot of promises. It will only be evident once we have studied at least 2 to 3 quarterly results. Till then you could look at other power sector stocks. RPL is a long term play and if you are willing to hold till 2009 or 2010 then you are fine. Jubiliant I don't follow.
GP asked, Why market so Volatile?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, Please refer to my reply to the first query.

anil asked, I have tech 30 tech mahindra at 1700. wht is the future?
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I think it will do well depsite the US economy figures as it has received a US$ 1 billion order to be delivered over the next five years from BT. I think it is a good stock to hold.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, It is almost impossible for anyone to predict a market bottom as so many factors affect the stock market. And the markets do look weak for some time to come. As far as cement stocks are concerened it would depend on the outcome of the ongoing discussions that the industry is having with the goverment who is trying to impose indirect price controls which is not healthy for the industry.
Dedhia asked, Hi. What is your view on Reliance Petroleum, L&T and Reliance Industries.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I think L&T and RIL are good holds. They are quality stocks with strong fundamentals. RPL will have to be held beyond 2009 for decent returns.
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, If the corporates continue their performance then the markets could go up by another 15 to 20%. But not without timely corrections.

Marc asked, I want to purchase Tech Mahindra at today's level @ 1457 and hold it for a year. Is it worth buying into it at these levels and what sort of returns can i expect in about an year
PRANAV SANGHAVI answers, I would buy at every dip. Buy 20 to 30% of what you wish to buy today. And in such quantities on every dip. With a 1 year outlook I don't think you will go wrong with Tech Mahindra. A 20 to 30% return cannot be ruled out.
