Positive on healthcare shares: Rohit Srivastava

Rohit Srivastava, Founder and Strategist at, 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, 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.

Market Watch: Dipan Mehta, Director, Elixir Equities

Reliance Industries

I think that O2C hive-off was disappointing because it would have been a trigger for the stock to move up as and when Saudi Aramco would have taken a stake in the company. What Reliance management did with retail business and the digital business something similar were to happen in the OTC business, then that what would certainly improve the sentiment in the stock.

While we are all rejoicing that Bharti Airtel has raised its tariff plans, the automatic beneficiary also will be Jio, and sooner or later, you may expect Jio also to start raising his tariff plans and that certainly benefit the digital businesses. The retail business, of course, is doing exceptionally well. So I think corrections like this are great opportunities if you are not already invested in Reliance, which you should be considering its weightage in the Sensex and Nifty and corrections like this, maybe 3-4 percentage point, five percentage points lower, give you a good entry point in Reliance. We have seen that whenever you bought into Reliance at corrections in a few months’ time it suddenly starts to outperform and deliver exceptional results. So I don’t think that Reliance is in a position where it will now be a laggard, it will continue to outperform on a medium to long term basis.
