Stocks to buy: Nifty @ Mt 16K: Play IT, diagnostics, NBFC, realty stocks


Information technology, diagnostics, NBFC and real estate players are likely to be the flavour of the upcoming season of buying.

Motilal Oswal:

CMP: Rs 1,654.10. Target Price: Rs 1,770

CMP: Rs 690.05. Target Price: Rs 835

generic pharma companies.

Tech Mahindra
CMP: Rs 1,226.05. Target Price:: Rs 1,375

SKF India
CMP: Rs 2,864.75. Target Price: Rs 3,300

Increase in wallet share in Meritor and Dana in export market coupled with market share gains in domestic tractors and CV market likely to help GNA surpass the industry growth in upcoming cycle.

Indo Count Industries

Brigade Enterprises
