Market Watch: Prakash Diwan, Market Expert

I think all these companies have enough products in their portfolios to survive the slowdown and get out of it very strong. People buy, institutional investors love to buy these stocks in anticipation how the next four, eight quarters are going to be not just the next one quarter. So that's where they are poised and it could offer you a very good entry point, at some point in time between now and the September earnings.
