Anand Prakash: I am a retired man. I want to invest in the following stocks — Lupin, Stride Pharma, Alemic Pharmaceuticals, Tide Water Oil, Sumitomo Chemical, Clariant Specialty Chemicals. Please advise.

Ajit Mishra: Except Tide Water, hold the other stocks. Also, you can look at more bluechip stocks to add to your portfolio.


Gireesh Hiremath: I am from Hubli, Karnataka. I have started investing in equity shares from June 1, 2021.

I have a few queries on some of the shares recently bought by me (CNC Orders: Equity Holdings).

Currently, these shares are under loss.

Is there any worrying sign as I have invested more than Rs 1 lakh in these shares? Or is it just a matter of time and these share prices will rise in the near future?

Ajit Mishra:


Anurag Arora: Please give your view on the following for a one year horizon.

Ajit Mishra: Hold.


Asheesh Sudan: Needed views on a few stocks I hold which are running into losses like IDFC First @ Rs 52, Yes Bank @ Rs 59 (including lock-in part) and Coal India @ Rs 145.

Have seen your advice to exit Yes Bank and Coal India scrips, but is it wise to exit on losses?

Are these total gone cases with no scope of revival in 4-5 years as well?

Other scrips I have are performing well like Axis, Infosys and L&T, which I plan to hold. Any advice on them? Should I book profit?

Ajit Mishra: For Yes Bank and Coal India, it would be prudent to exit.

Hold Axis, Infosys and L&T.
