On stocks to buy today, stock market experts — Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director at Choice Broking; Ganesh Dongre, Senior Manager — Technical Research at Anand Rathi; Shiju Koothupalakkal, Technical Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher; and Drumil Vithlani, Technical Research Analyst at Bonanza Portfolio — recommended nine stocks to buy or sell today.

Sumeet Bagadia's stock recommendations

1] Bajaj Finance: Buy at 6763.6, target 7170, stop loss 6554

BAJFINANCE is currently trading at 6763.6 and has recently consolidated at the bottom, given a breakout above the range with good volume, indicating a potential reversal and a strong bullish trend. A breakout above 6820 could propel the stock towards the 7170 level, with an immediate resistance at 6850. On the flip side, 6554 serves as a crucial support level.

Furthermore, after a prolonged correction, the stock has reversed from the support level. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is currently at 44, on an upward trajectory, suggesting growing buying momentum. Collectively, these technical indicators imply that BAJFINANCE has the potential to reach the 7,170 target in the near term.

To manage risk effectively, it is advisable to set a stop-loss (SL) at 6554 to protect the investment in case of an unexpected market reversal. A prudent strategy would involve considering buying opportunities on dips at levels around 6700 and 6670.

In summary, based on technical analysis and prevailing market conditions, BAJFINANCE appears to present a promising buying opportunity for those targeting a 7170 price objective. It is crucial to implement prudent risk management strategies to navigate potential market fluctuations.

2]Sun Pharma: Buy at 1538.70, target 1600, stop loss 1500

SUNPHARMA is presently trading at 1538.70 levels, bounced from the initial support of 1500. This bounce back signifies a potential shift in the stock's price dynamics, making it an intriguing investment prospect.

In addition, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is trending upward and appears positive, indicating a potential increase in buying pressure. Moreover, SUNPHARMA price is currently positioned above its 20-50-200 Day Exponential Moving Averages (EMA), suggesting underlying strength in the stock.

Taking all these factors into consideration, it is our professional opinion that SUNPHARMA presents a favourable buying opportunity at the current price of 1538.70, with a target price of 1600. It is important to note that our views would be invalidated if the stock were to fall below the 15000 level.
