We expect the Nifty to continue its march higher towards our first target of 15,335 (which is almost there), followed by new highs very soon. With this gradual advance, the supports are shifting higher and now the immediate supports are placed around 15,235 and 15,163. Hence, we continue with our advice for traders to continue with a positive bias and look for buying opportunities on intraday declines.

Oil marketing companies (OMCs) do offer value, they are quite attractive on valuations. Our houseview is positive. BPCL is our top pick within the OMCs. However, in our model portfolio, we are more tilted towards gas stocks and we have GAIL and Gujarat Gas as our top positions there.



On Finance



We only have large banks in our model portfolio. We don’t own any NBFC or any of the smaller banks in our model portfolio. We have ICICI Bank and State Bank of India (SBI) as our top picks.
