Abhijeet from Tips2trade said, "Despite decent Q2FY23 results and overall steady fundamentals, like other small & mid cap stocks, Avanti Feeds stock has also seen a sharp downfall since the past few days. The stock is currently oversold and a daily close above  Rs 383 can be a good time to buy for targets of  Rs 433-475 in the near term.  Rs 364 will be a strong support."

Tirthankar Das, Technical & Derivative Analyst, Retail, Ashika Stock Broking said, "The stock has undergone significant price/time correction since November 2017 peak of Rs 980 and are still trading in neutral price region on their momentum readings indicating that possibility of further downside remains. Retracement level of 50% of its entire historical rally had its strong support base at Rs 535 for almost two years in a row, initiating pullback for multiple number of times. Presently, the stock has breached past the said support level. Hence, further weakness towards the next crucial 61.8% retracement level of  Rs 287-300 might be the probable target in near term."
