Market expert Ambareesh Baliga sees a buying opportunity in Tata Elxsi after a correction of another 5-7 percent.

See selective buying opportunities in market: Jitendra Gohil
Jitendra Gohil, Head-India Equity Research at Credit Suisse Wealth Management, believes that weakening of sentiment has created selective buying opportunities in the market. "We believe that in these kind of stressful or difficult times, when volatility is very high and sentiment is weak, one should invest. When these issues get resolved, one should sell. We have taken this as a good buying opportunity in the previous dip. We have been recommending investors to remain a little bit more diversified in their portfolios. We have added to some stocks that can actually benefit of inflation. Overall, the sentiment is weak but there are pockets of very good opportunities. We feel that the froth in the market, which was there before this entire issue took place, has settled now," he says.
