For the past couple of weeks, this counter appears to be consolidating in a narrow range between Rs 360 and Rs 336 with a positive bias and appears to be on the verge of a breakout.
NEW DELHI: Indian equities suffered strong losses in Monday's session, as investors took the exit root after Budget disappointment even as negative global cues triggered a selloff.

Concerns over another fraud at PNB and the Budget proposal to increase minimum public shareholding limit punctured investor sentiment. Besides, stronger jobs data in the US dashed hopes of aggressive rate cuts by the US Fed, fanning worries that flow of foreign capital will ebb.

Geopolitical tensions in West Asia triggered a spike in crude oil prices and dragged the rupee lower.


While there is pessimism all around, some analysts said investors should adopt a stock-specific approach to be able to reap gains and minimise losses. Based on the recommendations of various analysts and brokerages, here is a list of 10 stocks that they say can potentially deliver gains over the next 2-3 weeks.

The RSI has seen a range breakout, as it surpassed the 60 mark, which was acting as a strong resistance for the last one year in a bullish signal. "We recommend a ‘buy’ rating on Concor in the Rs 559-540 price range for the target of Rs 640 with a stop loss at Rs 525," Modi said.

After the sharp rally seen during the fag end of June from Rs 511 to Rs 596 levels, momentum oscillator RSI entered the deep overbought territory, which resulted in a price correction during the past few sessions.
