Nifty50 possibly headed higher to 16,500: Jai Bala

Jai Bala of cashthechaos.com tells CNBC-TV18 that the 50-scrip benchmark in his view may be headed higher to even 16,500. "Even if the market were to get to 17,200. I'm not saying that it will get to 17,200 but if it does, it would still be a corrective bounce and that will be a very juicy shorting opportunity," he says. 

"As far as trading potential right now is concerned, as long as the Nifty stays about 16,050, that is a good pullback point and no short-term traders can find entries on the long side with a stop below 16,050," Bala adds.

Positive on ICICI Lombard General Insurance: Ambareesh Baliga

Independent market expert Ambareesh Baliga tells CNBC-TV18 that the general insurance sector in his view has performed quite badly in the last two years because of COVID. He expects premiums in the segment to grow at a CAGR of about 12 percent over the next decade.

"ICICI Lombard has today become the largest in the private sector space, especially after the merger with Bharti AXA. So for ICICI Lombard, the net earned premium over the next 3-4 years is expected to grow at a CAGR of 21 percent as against the industry's 12 percent. So it will be growing much faster than the industry. If the Q1 earnings disappoint, it is an opportunity to buy at lower levels. I am looking at an EPS of Rs 45 for FY24 and my target is Rs 1,575,” Baliga adds.
