Investors willing to invest in SBI stocks need to take a long term view on the stock instead of looking for gains in a near to medium term, Technical Analyst Nilesh Jain of Anand Rathi Securities has recommended. Jain reasoned that most of the public sector stocks including the SBI have been underperforming because of a variety of reasons.
According to Jain, the Stop-Loss for SBI share price is around Rs 302. It has major support around this level. He said that at current levels hovering around Rs 315, the risk and rewards for SBI shares could be gauged in the long term. If the stocks go down below the Rs 300 levels, it could be termed as asymmetrical cycle breakdown. The investors should expect a 10% correction from those levels.
Jain said that the capital infusion by the government at regular intervals has a temporary bearing on the stock but that does not impact the stock over a long period.
Jain was hopeful that the government would bring some positive changes in the upcoming Budget 2020, that could lift the stock prices. But the impact will be seen over a longterm period.
