  • Key support for Nifty50 at 17,800: Gaurav Ratnaparkhi

    Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas, sees key support for the Nifty50 index at 17,800. "The Nifty witnessed sustained selling pressure for yet another session. An intraday bounce faced resistance near the key hourly moving averages and the 20-day moving average. From there, the index nosedived towards the end of the session. As a result, Nifty has entered the near-term support zone of 17,900-17,800. The hourly chart shows that the index has reached lower end of the rising channel with a minor breach on the downside," he said. 

    He sees scope for a bounceback as long as the index holds 17,800 on a closing basis, and a near-term hurdle is at 18,000-18,050 levels.

  • Like Fortis from hospital space: Mayuresh Joshi 

    Mayuresh Joshi of William O'Neil continues to like Fortis from the hospital space. "The hospital space has delivered a very good set of numbers. So I think you take instance of Apollo Hospitals, Fortis or Max Healthcare, I think all numbers have been extremely good... A lot of managements in their conference calls have actually mentioned that the non-COVID revenues and OPD surgeries that were missing will start coming through significantly. And the average length of stay is also coming down, which probably means that the kind of capex that they're putting in, in bed additions, as well as the asset light model in terms of managing the beds, these dynamics will keep on improving over the next few quarters," he said. 

    "The diagnostics part of the businesses which these hospital chain have is also showing significant signs of improvement as well as the EBIT contribution from new hospitals... Valuations are on the higher side but again, the earnings trajectory might probably get maintained. So anybody holding on to Apollo Hospitals should hold on, maybe you could trail your stop losses a little bit. Again, looking from a PAT perspective, at this juncture, I think Fortis healthcare is something that we like the arguments very, very similar to what I put out," Joshi added.

  • Nikhil Kamath, Co-Founder & CFO, Zerodha & Co-Founder & CIO, True Beacon - III

    On Paytm listing

    I wouldn't ask investors to stay away but I haven't researched Paytm to the extent that I could give you an expert opinion on it. Some very smart investors, like Softbank, have bet the bank on it and they seem optimistic about the future of Paytm and what it could do and what it could pivot into in a way. So I wouldn't be right in asking people to avoid this stock. But it would be fair to say, to really look at the value available on the table, do a lot of research on your own, don't buy into any of the stocks coming out today, just because 100 other people around you are buying into them, because I don't think that works in the long run.
