Motilal Oswal recommends buy on Bajaj Auto, Petronet LNG; sell on Divis Labs

Nifty Outlook

‘Doji’ at the upper end of the weekly channel signifies a ‘No Man’s Land’ situation near 8000. Post the ‘Run Away Gap’ on the immediate scale nifty is yet to witness any signs of exhaustion as it consolidated throughout the week in a narrow range. Momentum indicator has not yet registered an overbought situation & hence odds of a breakout above 8000 remain high. A sustained breach above 8000 could reinstate momentum & push it towards 8300. Only a breach below ‘Run Away Gap’ would stall the ongoing bullish trend. Short term traders could continue their longs in Nifty with stop placed at 7740.



Reco: BUY

Last Close: Rs 2544

Target : Rs 3100

Bajaj Auto saw a rebound from its long term support.

Target : Rs 300

Breakout from the immediate consolidation with significant volumes. The breakout is now followed by the ‘Rising Three’ formation indicating the uptrend to remain intact. Petronet LNG could be accumulated for a target upto Rs 300 with a stop at Rs 252



Reco: Sell

Last Close: Rs 1060
