Hexaware : Short Term View

There is a good short term move in large cap IT names like Wipro, Infy, TCS in last month while the markets are behaving sideways with defensive element and currency card playing factors. Low PE ratios also supporting up moves in these stocks.

One can go long in HEXAWARE TECHNOLOGIES LTD. CMP-334. Above 340 close the stock is likely give great up side break out provided the markets does not fall in sell off mode and try to slip towards its lower end of the range of NIFTY 10700. As we can see this stock made 550 around high in September 2018 and has been languishing since, probably ready for some trading action.

Useful tips for investors from Indian Warren Buffett Mr. Parag Parikh

Parag Parikh is a person who is the real Warren Buffett of India. (Rakesh Junjhunwala is not. Yes, he himself said he is a trader. Warren Buffett does not trade. Not just that Rakesh Junjhunwala is said to be Warren Buffett of India mainly because he has amassed largest wealth by investing in stocks in India than any other individual. In our view, apart from that, he does not qualify to be said to be Warren Buffett of India. Because the Warren Buffet legacy is not only figures but principles that he follows. In our opinion Parag Parikh, whenever he talks, reflects the principles, style and attitude of a real Warren Buffett approach follower. In other words, if you disagree with Mr.Parikh, you are likely disagree with Mr.Buffett.

Legendary Value Investor Parag Parikh died in 2015 while he was on his way to attend AGM of Berkshire Hathaway of Warren Buffett in USA.

We request all to repeatedly watch/hear Mr.Parag Parikh and search his videos on youtube.com and hear him and digest him. Below are some of his

  1. If you have one set of losers and one set of winner stocks, and you need money then rather than selling the winners you may choose to sell half half of both. In this way you are managing your finances as well as avoiding behavioural anomalies.
  2. One should not have more than 20 stocks in a portfolios because it reduces return and it is difficult/impossible to track these many 20-50 stocks.

India Cements Ltd: Short Term View

As we saw in our previous market views how the markets are in a range and may break out any side. The upside break out is above 11,000 and during that or after that happens we need to remain ready with our buy list of stocks, even if the break out doesn’t happen and market languish within the range, the individual midcap et al stocks will give rally and we need to take benefit of it. Pls remember these are just trading calls as we will see MF and inst. buying and lack of trading short selling by FPI and big traders. This is only technical bounce and some fundamental long only investors buying upmove. So, trade in that manner and not like its a continuing bull market trend. Everytime market or stocks go up is not a bull market. We are in a sideways market and you need to learn how to trade it. We will update more such short term technical buying calls.

So, buy India Cement around CMP 88.

Caution Ahead For Indian Stock Markets

On our blog www.meghainvestments.blogspot.in (oldest regularly updated blog in Indian stock market research and advisory field since 2008) we have been writing about inherent weakness in Indian stock markets as well as the non trendiness and sideways/range-bound kind of movement in the markets which has been exactly playing our like that only.

Trade with caution. Sensex , Nifty January 2019.

The markets are still in the same mode of buy on dips and sell on rise, however it is slowly inclining more towards the ‘sell on rise’ attitude. Also, the ‘triangle breakout’ pattern on Nifty-50 Index could be the make or break. Most world markets are in their H2-2018 bear market along with the equity beacon USA DJIA index which started its severest correction since 10 yrs of bull market in terms of time and price as well. To our analysts, this small bounce back will only persists for a little while and big trades are on the downside as we are always trying to hunt out big trades then small movements.

If markets are going to go up we will know it and get to it. The Nifty can give good conviction upside only above 11,000 and not before that. We need weekly close above it and then we are

Past Performance

Below are our recommended stocks at various times. You can see the staggering rise of each stock after recommendation price.

Please check out the individual service as the return on your investment will vary as per your investment method weather it is Stock SIP Service, One time Individual Investment Service or other service.

In actuality, we believe, past track record is not a perfect judge for an investor to decide about selection of a good investment advisor. Because (1) past track record is no a guarantee of future performance (2) different clients have different requirements/services (3) different investor enter and exit at different time and price so their individual return will vary just the same as any incremental new client’s.

9 Questions to ask and things to consider before Selection Your Stock Advisor


  1. What risk-reward ratio will you give me?
  2. Please give me 10 investors and traders awareness and educational articles prepared by you.
  3. What is your educational qualification and experience in market of how many years?
  4. Are you providing advice and recommend only to trade or investment also? (one must recommend and suggest about long term investment also)
  5. Will you give me trading calls in segment which I tell you or will you tell me in which segments and sub segments to trade? (advisor must not let client to select their own segment and sub segment, because advisors must know better than clients who are seeking advice which segments and sub segments to trade and which not)
  6. Are you giving free trial or not? (true advisor will not give free trial. Reason is simple. He must be already having enough paid customers and not have time to give free tips. Also such advisor believes ‘free things has no value and quality thing always has value and are costly. He will ask you ‘How can you take judgment of my service in 2 day of sample calls? This is unreasonable’.)
