5 Fundamentally Strong Stocks to Pick for Trading Today

Last Friday, I told you the markets are not often prone to lackluster movement. Whenever Nifty ends two or more expiries within a range of +2% or -2% consecutively, it often moves sharply.

In the last three expiries of December 2018, and January and February 2019, Nifty ended with returns of -0.73%, 0.47% and -0.36% respectively.

The last time Nifty ended three expiries in a row within a range of +2% or -2% - it ended up moving 10.33%, -7.54% and 5.43% respectively in the fourth month.

This indicated chances of a big move - more than 5% - could be possible during the March expiry.

India Rushes to Prepare for a 2-Front War

A 2-front war is here.

China and Pakistan seem to be acting in sync... when it comes to attacking India.

Both countries have increased their military activity in the border region like never before.

And that's exactly what India is rushing to prepare for.

In fact, the Indian government has already allocated Rs 90,048 crores for 2020-21 itself.

Plus, an additional Rs 4 lakh crore would be spent over next 5-7 years.

This money will secure our borders.  And...it will potentially trigger a mega growth opportunity for a select few Indian defence companies.

With this flood of money flowing their way... their stock prices could potentially shoot up to record highs in the coming years.

You can learn everything about this massive opportunity on November 30 at our Explosive Profits Summit.

At this summit, you will also get the details of what we believe is India #1 defence stock.

It's a potential 10x opportunity in the long term.

Now, which way that move happens is anybody's guess. But going by price action it looked to me at first that chances of a fall were higher.

Now, however, the markets have thrown a humble pie on my face, and instead rallied sharply over the last one week.

The index has already moved up more than 5% from the February expiry closing level of 10,792 in a short time.

Most traders who expected lackluster movement to continue and shorted calls and puts in expectation of collecting premiums were caught on the wrong foot. My Profit Hunter Pro readers were saved as I sent a timely warning that they should expect a big move ahead in March - you can see it in this piece.

While I got the amplitude of the move right - I was wrong about its direction. Nevertheless, the rollover and options data indicated the tug-o-war between the bulls and bears may be entering its final stage. And 11,000 will be the crucial level which decides who wins this match.

So, as soon as the Nifty broke out above the 11,000 mark on Monday, it became obvious that markets would probably head higher and move up at least 5% from the February expiry closing level of 10,792.

A good trader is never married to his view or position...the moment he feels the market is moving the other way he swiftly changes his view accordingly.

That's a trading lesson I hold very close - and that's what we did at Profit Hunter Pro ...

After the market broke out of the 11,000 mark - the opportunities just started jumping out at me.

I have now added four new recommendations:

  • First is an auto company breaking out of a double bottom formation and expected to generate 10% gains
  • Second is private bank which is forming an inverse head and shoulder pattern after going through a perilous downtrend
  • The third stock is from the hospitality industry which broke out of a 10-year consolidation last year. I expect it to generate average gains of atleast 20% in the medium term
  • The fourth stock is a pharma company which has bucked the trend in the sector and trading close to its 52-week highs

Now, before you ask let me tell you all these companies have gone through the Equitymaster research team's lens at one point or other and are fundamentally strong companies.

So, there are five stocks already on my radar which are ready to move up.

Apart from this, I also closed a recommendation in GE Shipping during the week with a profit of 7.54%.
