This rise in the housing finance company has to be seen from this perspective as it is going to drive the stock for medium to long term."

Expecting strong rebound in the scrip, Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director at Choice Broking said, "The BSE listed stock is in uptrend and it may go up to 175 apiece levels after sustaining above 160 hurdle." He said that the stock has strong support at 140 levels and any major dip in the stock should be seen as buying opportunity as stock may go up to above mentioned levels in next one to two months.
