On the eve of Ganesh Chaturthi, here are the top stocks picked by analysts, which have the potential to give double-digit returns in the near to medium term.
Linde India, Upside Potential: 35%
The “Ascending Triangle” breakout in July this year pushed the stock into the bullish territory. Subsequently, the stock scaled over Rs 5,200, its immediate hurdle, further prompting fresh advance.
The overall trend is headed to Rs 8,000-mark, as per the technical layout on the weekly and monthly charts. The support falls at Rs 4,800-4,700 levels.
Polycab India, Upside Potential: 30%
After hitting an all-time high at Rs 5,333, the stock has managed to hold ground near Rs 4,800, which is the breakout mark of the bullish rally.
The stock succeeded to reverse around this corner, representing robust support and an accumulating posture that continues to embrace the positive trend. The stock is heading towards Rs 6,300-7,500 levels. Recommend accumulating the stock at around Rs 5,100, and on a dip towards Rs 4,600.
Finolex Industries, Upside Potential: 25%
The broader outlook clearly validates the support of 200-SMA, presently set at Rs 145-mark. The consolidation breakout from the range of Rs 200-155 in early August has elicited a bullish outlook for the coming months. Also, the positive crossover of 100-SMA with 50-SMA further negates any major drawdown.
Recommend buying the stock at levels of Rs 228, for a target of Rs 285.
Union Bank of India, Upside Potential: 15%
The stock has managed to take out the hurdle range of Rs 95-92, with aggressive volumes in recent sessions. This move has simultaneously built support at Rs 84-78 levels. With the overall trend heading towards Rs 110, more accumulation is expected to emerge.
Recommend buying at levels of around Rs 98 and/or on a decline towards Rs 90, for a target of Rs 110.
