Stocks to buy this week: Wipro, Eicher Motors, IPCA Labs among 9 technical picks; do you own any?
The domestic equity market is witnessing some correction after a record-setting spree last month. Equity benchmark Nifty 50 swung between gains and losses in morning trade.
Experts expected some consolidation in the market as most positives are already discounted in the market and valuations are high.
On the technical front, Anand James, Chief Market Strategist at Geojit Financial Services, pointed out that if the bulls choose to ride on the momentum, we could stretch as far as 22,400.
However, James believes a turn lower or sideways move is highly likely given how pronounced the negative divergence is on the directional moving indicator, and with 3D RSI peaking.
“That we are about 8.5 per cent above the 100 DMA (daily moving average) also supports this construct, as the last time we were more than 10 per cent above this benchmark was in late July 2023, a three-month consolidation followed. We will use 21,730 as a pivot to go with this construct this week,” said James.
Experts recommend buying technically and fundamentally sound stocks at the current juncture. Based on the recommendations of several experts, below are nine stocks that one can consider buying for the next three to four weeks. Take a look:

Wipro | Target price: ₹530 | Stop loss: ₹440
Wipro has made a solid base near ₹400–420 levels. The time retracement is 0.886 approximately, along with a price retracement of 0.618 approximately on the monthly timeframe.
Additionally, it is sustaining above all major exponential moving averages. Moreover, monthly Stochastics have reversed from the 50 level, which is looking lucrative.
“We advise traders to go long in the stock in the range of ₹465–475 with a stop loss of ₹440 for the upside target of ₹530,” said Patel.
Since the last week or so, this counter has gained momentum. From a retracement perspective, alternate wave retracement comes exactly near 0.618 and 1.628 of its previous up moves, thus making it a lucrative buy.
Time and price retracement are falling at the same length, which is a strong indication of bottoming out. (Time retracement is 100 per cent and price retracement is 0.786 per cent)
On the indicator front, the weekly RSI has reversed from 50 levels, which further confirms our bullish stance on the counter.
“One can buy the stock in the zone of ₹305–312 for a target of ₹355 and a stop loss of ₹285 on a daily closing basis,” said Patel.
Clean Science had been consolidating between ₹1,330 and ₹1,430. Recently, it broke out from the said levels and sustained above them.
Also, the bear trendline on a weekly scale has been violated, along with RSI and DMI weekly being in bullish mode, which is looking lucrative.
“We advise traders to go long in the zone of ₹1,525-1,550 with a stop loss of ₹1,450 and an upside target of ₹1,700,” Patel said.
