Equity benchmark Nifty 50 opened nearly 65 points higher at 22,403.50 on Monday, March 4, marking the fourth consecutive session of gains as sentiment remains upbeat on strong domestic macro numbers.

Experts, however, underscore the market's rich valuation and they expect the market to see some consolidation in the near term due to rich valuations.

"There is room for optimism but there is no case for unbridled bullishness. The SEBI advisory to mutual funds regarding the excessive valuations in the mid and small-cap schemes is likely to restrain the performance of the broader market. The irrational exuberance in the broader segment has no fundamental justification," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

Brokerage firm Axis Securities expects Nifty to trade in the range of 22,800-22,000 with a positive bias for the week.

"If the Nifty 50 crosses and sustains above the 22,500 level, it would witness buying, leading the index towards 22,600-22,800 levels. However, if the index breaks below the 22,300 level, it would witness selling, taking the index towards 22,150-22,000," said Axis Securities.

The market may see volatility in the near term and considering this, experts RECommend buying technically and fundamentally sound stocks at the current juncture. Based on the recommendations of several experts, below are 10 stocks that one can consider buying for the next three to four weeks. Take a look:
