Remain positive on India telecom story: Mehraboon J Irani
Market expert Mehraboon J Irani remains positive on the country's telecom story. "The question is whether you buy Bharti Airtel as a trading bet. The answer is: Certainly not. But if one has it in the portfolio, and one wants a proxy for the telecom sector, I think certainly one will continue to hold on to it. Will the stock be higher than where it is right now or the next one? Yes. They have taken care of the liquidity problem with the recent rights issue. The tariff hike also was a definitely a welcome move and should definitely help the company in as far as the incremental revenue to EBITDA goes. I think all said and done, it is a big positive for Airtel and we now need to need to see what Jio does," he said.
Steel sector fundamentals rosy: Sushil Kedia
Sushil Kedia, Founder of Kedianomics, believes the fundamentals for the steel sector are rosy. The Street is very bullish and an interim trading rally is there but for those who have the appetite to hold, a 10 percent further risk doesn’t make much difference, he said.
"It is a zone to buy. If you are betting for SAIL to go to Rs 180-200, it is already a good time to buy. However, for leveraged traders, steel may not be the best place right now to take big bets on,” he said.

Positive on healthcare shares: Rohit Srivastava
Rohit Srivastava, Founder and Strategist at Indiacharts.com, believes that all sectors that have taken a beating in the recent past should start to participate again. "Healthcare has already paused and turned to the upside over the last few weeks. So that should also participate. Why look away from those which was strong during this period except that some of them could consolidate like power as a very good phase. But we do sense that there is space there for consolidation, but when it comes to the auto sector, it has been strong so could continue to be strong. So there is a mix of those but while we focused on the stronger ones for quite a while at the depth of this why not even focus on the ones which were strong on a one year basis but have actually seen a correction in the recent time period and which is where metals come in," he said.

Haven't applied for an IPO since 1992, better picture emerges 6-12 months after listing: Rohit Srivastava
Rohit Srivastava, Founder and Strategist at Indiacharts.com, has not applied for an IPO since 1992. "The last time I did, I did one for the first and the last time, and there is a reason for that. When you are more of a market analyst who looks at multiple things, technicals, fundamentals and so on, one thing I have found is that after a stock gets listed, and you give it time, which is 6-12 months, you are able to take a much better picture of the situation," he said.
"By the time they are in the market, you really have to judge whether all the growth is priced in or not, which is a very tough job. So the easier thing is to let the market decide and sometimes, six months later, you are surprised that the stock is actually down, as we saw in the case of Just Dial, and you are seeing some of the reaction in Paytm. However, maybe one year down the line, it may look different," he added.
