Analysts largely felt that Bajaj Hindusthan stock's immediate resistance is seen around Rs 18.50 level. It may climb up to Rs 21 once it surpasses the said level, said one analyst while another suggested that the stock is 'overbought' and investors can look to book profits at current levels.
Osho Krishan, Senior Analyst- Technical & Derivative Research at Angel One, "There has been a buzz in the sugar counters in today's session, mirroring to which Bajaj Hindusthan Sugar has also soared upwards. On the technical aspect, the stock has a bullish gap placed at Rs 14.60-13.50, and till it sustains above the same, it is expected to stay in the short-term uptrend. On the flip side, the immediate resistance is placed around Rs 18.50, surpassing which it may re-test the recent swing high of Rs 21 in the comparable period."
Pavitraa Shetty from Tips2trades, said, "From a journey of insolvency to payment of all OCD (optionally convertible debentures) dues, Bajaj Hindusthan stock price has surged since the past few weeks on the back of a strong uptrend even in the small cap index. Technically, the stock is overbought and investors should book profits at current levels up to Rs 18.50. New buy positions should be created only near Rs 11-11.5 levels."
