You can buy most of those under the midcap/smallcap segment.
The market down by close to 2000 points this week, many of these stocks are already nearing the 3 month low prices.

Thumbs up Invest - Right here Right Now !

I am tracking quarterly results that are being declared by companies. For this quarter (Q3FY2008) so far, Following companies have come out with excellent numbers.

IDFC (Infrastructure Development Finance Co.) *****
Axis Bank *****
JP Associates (Jaiprakash Associates Ltd) *****
Welspun Gujarat Stahl Rohren Ltd ****
ABG Shipyard Ltd ****
Rajesh Exports Ltd ***
Texmaco Ltd ***
Geojit Financial Services Ltd ***
Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd *****
Sintex Industries Ltd ***
Apollo Tyres Ltd
Exide Industries Ltd ***
KLG Systel Ltd
Prime Securities Ltd
S Kumars Nationwide Ltd
Vakrangee Softwares Ltd
Gruh Finance Ltd

Of the above, one can buy 5* and 4* rated stocks for long term. For others, eventhough results are good, I am not so sure of long-tern performance.

Now that markets are falling, I feel it is an ideal time to invest. Some of MY all-time favourite stocks for absolute long term investment:

Reliance Industries
L & T
Unitech Ltd
Axis Bank
Jaiprakash Associates
Kotak Mahindra Bank
U n i t e d S p i r i t s cheers:
Reliance Capital this one has given me tons of money !
Divi's Lab
Punj Lloyd
Adlabs Films
Educomp Solutions
Welspun Gujarat Stahl Rohren
India Infoline (5paisa.com)
Yes Bank

Last but not the least...

Infy !

Take a look at South Indian bank , it running low. Its sure to shoot back.Even Canara bank for that instance.

Is the correction happening now or is it that investors are offloading their shares to Buy IPO from Reliance Power ? anyone got any info about the same ?

Hey Snaronikar,

Don't act in haste and later.

Take a look at all the other stocks that BomBatt has suggested.

You can use this page as a launch page with the following guidelines.
(Since this site has summarized data for people who don't have time
to do too much research)
NSE India Stocks - Top Gainers

1.On the DayIndex page check where this stock ranks in terms of volume traded.
(So that if you suddenly want to sell it, you can be sure there will be buyers)

2.Open up the detail stock links and scan the charting for the stock, see how the stock moved over the past
6months, 1year, 2yrs, 5yrs.

3.You can view a summarized snapshot of the movement from the Index launch page as well.

4.Checkout the news on the stock from various sites.(This site has a ready link to Google finance news for the current script)

5.Checkout the growth matrix report under Misc reports. Sort them on the % returns.
You can see how which stock has given max returns.
(Again go by heavily traded stocks, dont go by small ones which may have given huge returns)

Regarding your decision. Infy may be a good choice for long term, But would you want to put your money in a stock that has been on the downslide since the past 9 months, when so many other stocks
were booming during the same timeframe?

cheers:

I suspect the following question is a bit like "which is the best looking car" one; but --

What are the minimum volumes one can be comfortable with? How to find out the average volumes over a period of time?

Oops ! of all the stocks you have to select Infy.

Yes Infosys WAS an excellent stock until 1 year back. But now with recession-like situation in the US and rupee-dollar equation, we just don't know what is in store for not only Infosys but also for all other S/w stocks that are depending on US economy. The markets don't like uncertainty and keep away from such stocks.

I fully agree with Fillmore's comment - "Don't act in haste and later"

Personally, Infosys was the first stock that I invested way back in the 90's and It has been a multi-bagger and I have an emotional attachment, hence it is one of my all time favorite.

OK. I have a question for you guys.
I usually do not invest lumpsum amounts in Mutual funds. Always prefer the SIP route.
But, last December, i was lured by my friend (who is a financial advisor as well), to invest lumpsum amount in 3 funds:
Reliance Growth fund
Reliance Vision fund
HDFC Prudence Fund.

The NAVs of these funds at the time of purchase was 163.34, 467.42 and 290.42 respectively.
However, right now the funds are at 160.4090, 457.7700 and 276.9500 respectively.

I understand that i committed a mistake, by investing in lumpsum when the market was high. Saving grace is that i did not invest much. Only 5k each (total 15k).

Now my question is, should i exit these funds to prevent further loss? Or is there any hope that in the long term (say 2-3 years), i might just earn a bit profit?

My suggestion is go in for a Systematic Transfer Plan, say 3k per month from each of the MF's you are holding to a good performing equity based MF.

Normally this option is used when you put bulk money into MF's. i.e. you enter in Bulk into a Debut based fund, then from this fund do an STP to an equity based fund. This way you are entering the Equity based MF in SIP mode.
