Stocks to buy: Indian stock market benchmark Nifty 50 opened with mild gains on Monday, April 8, with a majority of stocks in the green. In the previous session, Nifty 50 ended flat after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) maintained the status quo on policy rates and stance.

On a weekly scale, the index rose about a per cent last week but formed a 'Doji' candle on the weekly chart, indicating market participants are indecisive about the market.

As per brokerage firm Axis Securities, the chart pattern suggests that if Nifty crosses and sustains above the 22,650 level, it would witness buying, leading the index towards 22,800-23,000 levels. However, if the index breaks below the 22,400 level, it would witness selling, taking the index towards 22,200-22,100.

"The weekly strength indicator RSI (Relative strength index) is on the verge of crossing over above its reference line, indicating the trend may change to positive. For the week, we expect Nifty to trade in the range of 23,000-22,100 with a mixed bias," Axis Securities said.

Hindustan Unilever (HUL) | LTP: 2,266.95 | Buying range: 2,250-2,280 | Target price: 2,500 | Stop loss: 2,145 | Upside potential: 10%

After reaching the level of 2,769, HUL experienced a notable downturn, witnessing a significant decline of approximately 435 points, or about 16 per cent. 

However, in the subsequent six trading sessions, the stock displayed resilience, avoiding further declines and instead consolidating within a range spanning from 2,230 to 2,280. 

Within this price range, a bullish AB=CD pattern has formed on the daily chart. This range also corresponds with the 0.50 per cent retracement level of a price swing observed between March 2022 and July 2023. 

On a daily scale, the RSI has exhibited a complex structure (W shape) along with some regular bull divergence on the four-hour chart. 

The range of 2,230-2,280 aligns with the S3 weekly Camarilla Pivot, suggesting a potentially attractive buying opportunity.

AU Small Finance Bank | LTP: 634.75 | Buying range: 620-640 | Target price: 725 | Stop loss: 585 | Upside potential: 14%

AU Small Finance Bank reached a peak of 813 on January 9, 2024, and experienced a decline of about 32 per cent thereafter. 

However, in the past two weeks, the stock has shown a significant recovery, indicating a bullish sentiment. 

On the indicator side, the weekly scale Stochastics indicator has identified a "hidden bull divergence" close to its previous low point recorded on March 20, 2023. 

This divergence suggests the possibility of upward momentum and indicates a potential bullish sentiment.

Orient Cement | LTP: 217.10 | Buying range: 210-220 | Target price: 250 | Stop loss: 195 | Upside potential: 15%

Following a peak near 293, Orient Cement encountered a notable downturn, marked by a sharp decline of almost 103 points, equating to a substantial 35 per cent decrease in its overall value. 

Despite this downturn, Orient Cement has shown signs of stabilisation around the 200 level for the week, establishing a sustained support base. 

The 190-200 level coincides with the Fibonacci ratio clustering. Moreover, during this period, a 1:1 leg has also been formed around this support zone, further reinforcing a bullish sentiment in the stock. 

The analysis of the daily scale RSI indicator reveals a bullish hidden divergence, suggesting a favourable outlook for Orient Cement.

West Coast Paper Mills | LTP: 636.25 | Target price: 730 | Stop loss: 615 | Upside potential: 15%

The stock witnessed a decent correction from its peak of 815. It bottomed out near 580 to indicate a decent pullback. 

Further, it arrived near the confluence of the 200-period moving average (MA) and 50-exponential moving average (EMA) level of 645. 

"A decisive breach above should further strengthen the trend with the next targets of 700 and 730 levels anticipated. The near-term support would be around 615," said Koothupalakkal.

NBCC (India) | LTP: 138.35 | Target price: 159 | Stop loss: 126 | Upside potential: 15%

The stock has gained strength after the consolidation and a decent pullback, moving past the 50EMA level of 119, has improved the bias. The RSI is on the rise and has already indicated a trend reversal with much upside potential.

Railtel Corporation Of India | LTP: 395.55 | Target price: 448 | Stop loss: 375 | Upside potential: 13%

The stock, after the steep correction, picked up significantly to move past the important 50EMA level of 378. The RSI has recovered from the highly oversold zone and witnessing a gradual rise to strengthen the bias.

Shriram Properties | LTP: 130.35 | Target price: 140.90 | Stop loss: 122.60 | Upside potential: 8%

The stock has successfully broken out above its trendline resistance level of 127 on the daily timeframe charts. 

With the RSI (14) showing a reading of 63.58 and indicating an upward trend, there's considerable momentum in the stock.

Bajel Projects | LTP: 226.50 | Target price: 250 | Stop loss: 209 | Upside potential: 10%
