Mkts likely to see 10-15% sell-off: Shankar Sharma

Shankar Sharma, Vice Chairman and Joint Managing Director of First Global said that that market was looking tired within a range and it was experiencing a stock-specific movement. He is of the view that the current rally in the markets is being led by a handful of stocks which is disconcerting. According to Sharma, a 10–15% sell-off in the market is very likely. Sharma further said that Sensex could go to 13,000 before it goes back to 17,000.

Largecap IT stks to trade sideways for 6-9 mths: JPMorgan

There have been a lot of divergent takes in the information technology space. Many investment banks seem to think the worst is over and there would be a rapid acceleration of business traction from here. Some others are not quite so convinced at these valuation levels.

However, Manoj Singla of JPMorgan supports the first camp. He sees improvement in fundamentals, which would accelerate business moving to the end of this year. He further says technology stocks have discounted a lot of good news. However, he added, “We will probably be in a sideways trading zone for most of the large caps IT stocks in the next 6-9 months.”

Balaji Telefilms (Rs 66.3): Buy

We recommend a buy in Balaji Telefilms from a short-term perspective. It is evident from the charts that in mid-July it took support around Rs 40 and resumed its intermediate-term uptrend, which has been in place since March low of Rs 24.8. Moreover, it has been on a medium-term uptrend from July low. The stock breached its 21- and 50-day moving averages in mid-August and is trading well above them. On September 2, the stock penetrated its near-term resistance at Rs 64 by gaining 9 per cent, accompanied with high volume. The daily relative strength index has re-entered the bullish zone and weekly RSI is on the verge of entering this zone. Besides, the weekly moving average convergence and divergence indicator is likely to enter the positive territory. Our short-term outlook is bullish on the stock. We expect its up-move to continue until it knocks our price target of Rs 73. Traders with a short-term perspective can buy the stock while maintaining a stop-loss at Rs 63.
