After an over 5% gain in October, Nifty is up nearly one percent in November so far thanks to healthy September quarter earnings and buying by foreign portfolio investors.
But there is no guarantee that the trend will sustain. Many analysts have started pointing fingers at the rich valuation of the market. With rates rising and inflation still at a multi-year high and a recession in the US looming, the road ahead for the market is full of thorns.
Analysts advise staying cautious in the market and betting on quality stocks with good fundamentals and sound technical structure.
Based on the recommendations of several analysts, here are 10 stocks that can give healthy returns in the short term.
