Stocks to buy: The Nifty 50, the benchmark index of the Indian stock market, hit a fresh record high of 23,490.40 in the previous session, ending the week of June 10-14 with a gain of nearly 1 per cent.

The Nifty 50 remained in the green for four sessions last week, but the gains were capped due to the lack of fresh triggers.

After the return of the BJP-led NDA government, the focus is now on policy announcements and the upcoming Budget in July.

Technical analysts see some indication of indecisiveness in the market.

Brokerage firm Axis Securities pointed out that the Nifty 50 formed a 'Doji' candlestick formation on the weekly chart. A Doji candle indicates indecisiveness between buyers and sellers.

"The chart pattern suggests that if the Nifty 50 crosses and sustains above the 23,600 level, it would witness buying, leading the index towards the 23,800-23,900 levels. However, if the index breaks below the 23,300 level, it will witness selling pressure, taking it towards 23,200-23,000," said Axis Securities.

For the week, Axis expects Nifty 50 to trade in the range of 23,900-23,000 with a mixed bias.

"The daily and weekly strength indicator Relative Strength Index (RSI) is moving upwards and quoting above its reference line, indicating a positive bias," said Axis.

Even though the market outlook is positive for the medium to long term, analysts expect some volatility in the near term. At the current juncture, they suggest betting on fundamentally and technically sound stocks.

Based on the recommendations of several experts, here are eight stocks that can rise 4-16 per cent in the next 3-4 weeks. Take a look:

Shiju Koothupalakkal, Technical Research Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher

This stock has witnessed a steady uptrend with a strong ascending channel pattern on the daily chart.

Jigar S. Patel, Senior Manager of Equity Research at Anand Rathi Share and Stock Brokers

Titan Company | Previous close: 3,530.05 | Buying range: 3,500-3,540 | Target price: 3,675 | Stop loss: 3,445 | Upside potential: 4%

Recently, Titan stock surpassed its previous swing high of 3,460 and is now maintaining a stable position above it, around the 3,500 mark.

It has also found support near the 200-day exponential moving average (DEMA) and the 21-day exponential moving average (EMA), making it an attractive buying opportunity.

On the indicator front, the daily RSI has broken through a bearish trendline that has persisted for five to six months, suggesting a bullish bias.

Aether Industries | Previous close: 854.90 | Buying range: 835-860 | Target price: 965 | Stop loss: 795 | Upside potential: 13%

Following a correction of roughly 80 points, or 9 per cent, Aether Industries shifted its course away from the prior support mark of 800.

This support level coincides with the lower Bollinger band, implying a potential rebound, particularly given the weekly RSI has broken through a bearish trendline that has persisted for 12 months, suggesting a bullish bias.

"Investors are advised to contemplate buying this stock within the range of 835-860, envisioning an upward trend with a target price of 965. To manage risk effectively, it is recommended to implement a stop loss order near 795, centred on daily closing figures," said Patel.

Jubilant Foodworks | Previous close: 530.65 | Buying range: 522-532 | Target price: 600 | Stop loss: 485 | Upside potential: 13%

Jubilant Foodworks has two key technical analysis signals- a bull divergence on the daily Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator and a violation of a bearish trend line that had been in place for 3-4 months.

A bull divergence occurs when the stock price forms lower lows while the MACD indicator forms higher lows, indicating a potential reversal from a downtrend to an uptrend.

The breach of the bearish trend line suggests a potential shift in the stock's direction from bearish to bullish.
