What I heard just now is since ICICI has reached 900 levels its good opportunity to buy now, target price they say more than 1300 in near term.

Good picks for investments suzlon, gmr infra, ranbaxy, few auto shares. Lot of shares are cheap now reached good levels as per their valuation. now market is showing actual values i mean this is how it should be because it had gone up too much last year.

Regards,

Ravi.

I would advice against trying to catch a falling knife. I have cut my hands very badly while doing that. The market is searching for a bottom and nobody knows where it is.

If you already have these scrips, stay invested, otherwise stay far. Just my two cents.

If you are really a long term investor (i repeat long term - > 2 yrs) then this would be the time to organise your portfolio. Again. dont dump all money at one stretch, keep SIPing for a while on stocks. because, as you know, no one know where the market bottom is.....

That is a modest target you have set for yourself!
At the moment, seems like nobody has a clue on what to expect!

Please do not get into the market at this stage. Its a blood bath happening there. Wait for some signs of stability.

If you have set aside 100 Rs for investing in stocks, I would suggest put 25 to 30 % of it in market now.

If the market falls further, put another 20-25 % and average out your investment.

And if the market shows signs of stabilizing, you can always take a call on investing the full amount that is balance with you.

The key is stay invested for long and not putting all your eggs in one basket.

This is not the right time to invest. Just wait and watch!!

What hurts me is the fact that we get a flu if United States sneezes. All the valuations go for a toss. We have a long way to go until we have strength to be resilient to external forces.

Well, actually the US is already having a flu. So we should be in ICU now And yes, "patience wins"!

BUY -- Buy stocks that are strong in its fundamentals & also show volumes in trade. As no one knows bottom of market, so instead of timing the market it's better to keep buying stocks in SIP format i.e. keep buying in small quantities.

You would never know the bottom and peak of share market so best is wait for a big fall as it is happening now,invest in 3-4 different shares of different sectors and forget it for atleast a year.Then depending upon whether you need money or not this period can be extended to next 3-4 yrs when it will again fall.


BTW for long term players this is pro'ly the best time to invest.Prices of few stocks are really good,almost 50% of their peak.Market may take few months to stabilize and then you will see upward tend.

And not a bad time to invest in MFs too as these are around 20% less than their peak in Jan08.

This is the time when the market will differentiate between the men and boys.

It is those make profits in a falling market (no, not by being a bear or making short sales) who are the real investors.

Rumors of an up coming Black Monday were in the offing in the market today. Be cautious.
