Daljeet Kohli follows the salutary practice of being sensitive to the price of the stock. If the stock price surges in a short time, Daljeet gets jittery and puts the stock on hold. At the same time, if the stock price plunges, Daljeet rushes out a buy recommendation. This way, Daljeet has been able to pocket hefty gains without much risk to his capital.
Lets a take a look at a few recent stocks that Daljeet has grounded and put on ‘hold’:

Daljeet has recommended a buy of LIC Housing Finance with a target price of Rs. 575. His logic is as follows:
LIC Housing Finance
Strong show on all fronts… maintain buy with upwards revised target price of Rs 575 and maintain BUY…
LIC Housing Finance (LICHSG) has maintained its growth momentum in loan book at 16% yoy mainly led by higher growth in Loan Against Property segment (LAP) which grew by 122% yoy (partly due to low base) while Individual loan book (excl LAP) grew modest 10% yoy. Overall individual loan book (home loan and LAP) grew by 15% yoy and developer loan by 26% yoy. NIMs were ahead of expectation at 2.7% led by higher growth in high yielding project loan and LAP book along with easing cost of funds. Asset quality remains strong at 0.45% Gross and 0.22% Net NPAs. We revise upwards our earnings estimates by 1‐2% for FY17E and FY18E on back of beat on all fronts. Valuation at 1.9x FY18E ABV remains attractive. We roll over multiple to FY18E and upgrade target price to Rs 575 and maintain BUY.
