Traders will get opportunities in Grasim: NISM's Kunj Bansal
Kunj Bansal of National Institute of Securities Markets (NISM) tells CNBC-TV18 that in his view, traders, who have a short-term view, will get opportunities in stocks such as Grasim. Historically, holding company stocks don't get rewarded by the market, he says.
"There are multiple ways that market participant keep trying to value these stocks, including by sum of parts, and by giving weightage to individual companies, valuing them and then trying to arrive at an aggregate valuation or whatever. But these stocks typically move when the market is at its highs, which in fact currently is the case for that matter. As I said, they don't typically get right valuation because market finds that if I have to play cement, I'll go to individual companies and individual businesses. That's why I don't think that there is going to be a consistent outperformance from these kinds of stocks for an investor with a medium-term perspective to hold on," he says.

Hold Hindalco: Ruchit Jain
Ruchit Jain of 5paisa.com suggests investors to hold Hindalco shares. The dollar index, which has an inverted correlation with metal prices, has corrected sharply in the past few sessions, he points out.
"In case if the dollar index continues its downtrend, metal names will continue to do well. Hindalco specifically has given a breakout today from its previous swing high resistance. Even if you look at the volumes today, after the company's results, volumes are quite good... This clearly indicates good buying interest. Technically, the short- to medium-term target predictions for the stock as seen around Rs 500-510. At current levels, one should continue to hold for a potential target of around Rs 500," he tells CNBC-TV18.
