Margin definitely a problem for IT sector: Sudip Bandopadhyay 

Sudip Bandopadhyay, Group Chairman of Inditrade Capital, tells CNBC-TV18 that the margin issue is pretty apparent in largecap IT earnings. "If somebody is taking a slightly longer-term view, things do get balanced out. The rupee has depreciated sharply and company like Infosys have significant dollar earnings," he says.

The rupee depreciation does cover margin pressure to an extent as far as the overall profitability is concerned, he says. "However there can be some disappointment in earnings and correction from the current prices,” he adds.

ITC may continue to unlock value going forward: Deven Choksey 

Deven Choksey of KRChoksey tells CNBC-TV18 that he expects ITC to continue to unlock value going forward. "Each of the verticals, be it FMCG, agri, paper, paperboard or even hotel, has systematically grown the business over a period of time. After growing to a size in some of the verticals, like FMCG, probably they would have a relatively better chance to get value unlock from hereon," he says. 

"In the immediate term, you might see some profit booking because the market has rallied significantly, but if I look at the investment opportunity, every correction or a fall in stock price would be inviting more investors into the stock. So, one would definitely stay long if one is a long-term investor," he adds.

-- Buy Dixon Technologies for a target of Rs 4,280 with a stop loss at Rs 3,860 

-- Buy Nocil for a target of Rs 310 with a stop loss at Rs 278 

-- IndusInd Bank can move to Rs 1,130-1,140 and on the downside Rs 900 will remain a very important support, so it should not break below Rs 900.
