Technical Charts – Icici Bank, Axis Bank,Bpcl, dlf, Hero Motocorp.



Earlier we were looking for a price action above 900-910 or a move beyond 840 on downside. There is price action below 840 but it formed a doji for last couple of days. No signs of momentum seen on the downside too.




Axis Bank --- Again near to supports but will it break or reverse. Too early to call.




BPCL – 700-710 seems a resistance. Is diesel hike on cards.



DLF – The ping pong continues between 170-190 to 240-260 bands on either side.




Hero Motocorp --- The stock looks excellent on the long term basis. Previous tops 2250-2270 remain a resistance which if crossed can give a jump. Only concern stoploss is a bit deep.


Strategy: The last few weeks have been terrible in terms of market behaviour with no clear direction it seems that now its a time to just sit back and wait for clarity on trending trades. Stick to small and quick trades. Buy the dips to book on jumps.

Some Quick Technical Charts

Also more such quick observations posted on


Above is just a quick review and not a buy/sell recommendation so please do your own research. We may or may not take any action on above charts.


Currently our view is to stay on to cash and hold a mix of defensive and growth stocks which we like and have lesser downside risk. Technically we dont see many buying opportunities as the trend remains down in broader market apart from a few large cap cos everything is sinking.


As mentioned before we have been a buyer below 4950-4700 as 1st entry and 4300-4500. With the sharp bounce backs we could book profits previously so still holding lot of stocks and less equities

Jubilant Foodworks – Too Expensive –Highly Speculative !

This has been one of the favorite stocks of speculators over the last many months.


If one has to simply look at the fundamentals it really hits us as to why would you buy this stock at 850-900 levels ?

Things to note.


-> Current Market Cap of Jubilant Foodworks – 1.1 billion US dollars or around 5500 cr Re.  Current Market Cap of Dominos USA – 1.69 billion dollars. (


-> Current P-E of Dominos USA around 18-19. Current P-E of 68-70 for Jubilant Foodworks.


There are just too many Indian companies available at 5000-6000 crores market cap like Godrej Inds, Indian Hotels, Tata Global who have been around for decades :). Although there is no comparison to above but it clearly tells you the size of Jubilant Foodworks.


Now certain other things which create big doubts on the company.


- > Delivery Volumes are only 10-25%. Implies 75% of the trades are squared of intra day !!! I doubt Institutions trade in it 🙂 so is some one manipulating ? circular trading ?


-> Total Daily Volumes on NSE itself is around 15-25 lakhs and another 8-10 lakh shares on BSE. This gives a total volume of around 25-30 lakhs every day.


-> Total No of shares is around 6.4 cr of which 59% is promoters and 20% with institutions which leaves us with a floating no of shares of around 1.2 cr shares. Many other institutions would be holding less then 1%.

On so many days it has even traded as high as 50 lakh shares 🙂 in a day. That is way too high for an investors comfort


-> Promoters have sold some stake at higher levels.


13-Sep-11 Jubilant Foodworks Ltd Jubilant Enpro Pvt Ltd Sell 170,000   02-Sep-11
09-Sep-11 Jubilant Foodworks Ltd Jubilant Enpro Pvt Ltd Sell 27,392   29-Aug-11
07-Sep-11 Jubilant Foodworks Ltd Jubilant Enpro Pvt Ltd Sell 40,000   26-Aug-11
06-Sep-11 Jubilant Foodworks Ltd Ajay Kaul Sell 55,000   02-Sep-11
02-Sep-11 Jubilant Foodworks Ltd Jubilant Enpro Pvt Ltd Sell 102,220   17-Aug-11


Majority of the stake has been sold from 17 August to 13 September. The stock price then was between 920-1020.

Mr Ajay Kaul ( CEO ) selling of 55000 shares was between 02 September to 06 September. The stock price was at 950-1020 for that 4 days only 🙂 and once it was reported to the exchange the stock took a hit it seems or mr Ajay Kauls timing was brilliant. He has only sold part of his holding apparently.


Stock subsequently hit 650 and is now back to 850-880.


-> The promoter holding has declined from 62.07% to 58.88 % as of last quarter and ma fall further in this quarter.

-> The company does sales of less then 1000 crores and with decent NPMs. As the business grows which people expect the NPMs are set to drop is what i feel.

-> Even if the company keeps growing at current pace the stock price is way too high at 850-900 bucks and is already factoring high growth for next 1-2 years.



All in all there are way too many question marks in the above stock. How long can the company grow profits at 50% y-o-y. What if the NPMs drop. The growth takes a hit due to competition or some undue announcement. The delivery volumes show lot of speculative interest.


There seems no Margin of Safety and Way too much Risk in the above stock. !!! 🙂 ---- My view its a clear AVOID !!! Even for the day traders take CARE 🙂


Happy Investing,

Axis Bank and Cummins technical charts



Cummins ---- Breakdown confirmed but no follow up.


Axis Bank


Axis Bank --- Fall but with less pressure can expect pullback in coming days.


Technically this is a consolidation for the markets and it will continue to give surprise hits on either side. Traders need to be cautious and keep lower volumes and wait for right opportunities. Have seen a few stops being hit over the last 1 week.


Nifty may stay in this range of 4750-5150 for quite some time it seems. On the broader end 4500-4550 on downside and upside to 5320 remains an extreme case. Go stock specific and that too in lower positions be it short or long. Long term Investors may continue to use every panic for stock specific buying slowly.


JB chemicals may get interesting at 55-60 levels on terms of cash available.

Also would suggest readers to take this bearish phase as the best time to learn technical analysis so that you can profit from it in the future. The best time to learn is now !! and the 2 day training programme we conduct is the best way to do it and all it requires is an interest to learn and no other pre-requisite knowledge.

Godrej Inds – Low Downside Risks– Huge upsides in Long term – An important pick for a long term portfolio.


Over the past many months we have been recommending Godrej Inds at 185-200 levels as well as had many trading positions in it in this range of 185-240.


But lets look at a little longer time horizon on the stock and possible reasons for buying the stock with a 1-2 yrs or even 5 years view. The major comfort comes in the fact that management is reliable and has good track record.


Now lets look at some more details


Godrej Inds – Market Cap – 6100 crores


Holding Value


1) Godrej Consumer Products – 21.6% holding is worth around 2900 crores


2) Godrej Properties – 70.6% holding is worth around 3200 crores


So thats give a holding value of around 6100 crores.


Now lets look at other major businesses


Godrej Inds – Chemicals business – Does sales of around 1000 crores.


Godrej Agrovet – Does sales of 1900 crores.


Apart from that there are many other business like Animal Feed, Godrej Tyson Foods, Palm Oil  and other Agri products, Godrej Seeds & Genetics Limited.


Apart from this the company- Godrej Inds  has a share of 40% in the profits for development of Vikhroli property. They may also have more development of Godrej & Boyce properties all over India.


So if i were to take a rough valuation.


Holding Value Discount – 2500-3000 crores.

Other companies do almost 3000-4000 crores of sales and the real estate development we can give it a valuation of price to sales of 1 ( this is my way m bad at fundamentals neways but a rough approximation )


So at current market cap of 6000-6100 crores i believe downside could be limited to 10-15% but upsides could be easily a double over the next 3 years.


An investor with a long term view should have this stock in the portfolio as its a mix of safety as well as participation in growth with so many verticals.


The above analysis is a quick take and a personal view – Please do your own research.


Disclosure: Have long term investments in the stock as well as we keep trading the stock for small spurts to reduce the holding average.



Happy Investing,



Alert to buy declines on Friday between 4820-4720. If bought time to book.


Last Friday had mentioned that one can look at staggered buying as INDIA VIX was back to 37 odd levels showing extreme panic. Alert VIX . We initiated a couple of option strategies on Friday which yielded 5% + in 3 sessions ( will update a detailed post on it soon )  . look at the previous Alert which was before 4900 to 5150 move – INDIA VIX


Again had mentioned yesterday the view remains to buy on declines in specific stocks. One should now look to book on rise to 5050 + as from a low of 4750 we expected a 6-10% bounce which gives us 300 + points move.



CANARA BANK --- Stock to watchout for tomorrow can jump to 455/470.
