Don’t think 19,200 will be long-term top of this market: Sushil Kedia
Sushil Kedia, Founder of Kedianomics, believes there is so much more to the current market. He doesn’t think that 19,200 on the Nifty50 index will be the long-term top of this market.
“Nifty is going to 19,200 and your portfolio going up by 30 percent are two different things. So very selective stock picking for this winter into November in December… As of now, all I can guess although no one knows the future completely. At best I can conjecture some few things with a stop loss; maybe we go to 19 200 subject to Monday’s closing above 18,000. And then we will come back to maybe 16,700,” he said.
Muhurat Trading | BSE CEO’s advice to new-generation investors: Study a lot, invest with own conviction, avoid too much trading
Ashish Kumar Chauhan, MD and CEO of stock exchange BSE, has an advice for investors: The time is to be cautious. “When you go to buy a stock, study a lot, and listen to everyone but since it is your money, invest with your own conviction, and buying in the morning and selling in the evening is not considered investment. Try to be there for 3-5 years. Once you have convinced yourself for a particular stock, don’t try to do too much of trading because you may end up losing money,” he said.
“We have got almost literally 100 percent new investor accounts over the last 18 months, which is a great thing. But the new investors, even old investors, when they start making money, then they start becoming more adventurous. So I think the time is to be cautious and also ensure that it is your own money… Don’t indulge in derivatives trading if you don’t understand what derivatives are, no matter what people tell you. So those are some of the things which we need to basically keep in mind as new investors… that even old investors also need to keep in mind, given the euphoria,” he added.
Mahurat Trading | Atul Suri positive on PSU banking, real estate, metal spaces

He likes PSU banking, real estate and metal spaces. He likes SBI from the state-run banking pack, and believes IT to be an evergreen sector.

Tailwind for real estate, prices have not moved for 5-6 years: Sunil Singhania
Sunil Singhania of Abakkus Asset Management is positive on the real estate sector. “There is obviously a tailwind as far as real estate is concerned; for 5-6 years, the prices have not gone anywhere. There is consolidation in the industry; the industry has turned out to be much cleaner with government regulations and you also have an element of very low interest rates… the mortgage rates have never been so low in India, and that makes buying the house almost 20-25 percent cheaper. Then you had various state governments give you some respite in terms of stamp duty and so forth,” he said.
“On the residential side, there is definitely a tailwind, which will last. We unfortunately have not been a major investor on the real estate space, we are playing it more through the ancillary segment — building material etc,” he said.

Muhurat Trading | Sunil Singhania’s advice for first-time investors: Don’t get carried away

We saw how the Squid Bitcoin has collapsed to almost zero, and there are stories of how people have lost money,” he said.

So have reasonable return expectations and you will have a happy Diwali every year,” he said.
“This has been a very unique year and one thing that actually gladdens my heart is that for once, Indian retail investors have benefited out of this market. Otherwise, we were all only seeing the markets move up and down and all the foreign institutional investors are coming in making money. To that extent, it is very heartening,” he said.
