For the next eight months, the stock moved in a range of Rs 78-102 odd levels. After making multiple bottoms around Rs 80, the stock has given a sharp upside rally to breach the range and made a 4-year high of Rs 110 odd level.
RSI Oscillator is showing positive divergence. Currently, prices are moving in an overbought zone and it will be risky to buy at this level.
Our opinion is to wait for a fresh entry. Let the stock correct till Rs 95 odd levels and then we can buy for higher levels of Rs 130-150 in the next 6-8 months.
Hence, we recommend waiting for some correction and then buying at lower levels of Rs 95 and more on dips of Rs 85 with a stop loss of Rs 75 on a weekly closing basis on the upside, we can see levels of Rs 130-150 in the next 6-8 months.
