On his suggestion for the equity market investors in regard to SBI Life Insurance share Madhukar Ladha of HDFC Securities told, "I recommend buy in SBI Life Insurance with a target price of Rs 750." Currently the strip is moving in the range of Rs 624 levels. A move up to the levels of Rs 750 would give invetors a return to the tune of Rs 125 or near 20 per cent on their investment.
Asked about the same, Simi Bhaumik, Technical Equity Analyst (officially registered with SEBI) said, "Technically the strip looks strong in both short-term and mid-term perspective. The SBI Life Insurance share has a strong support at below Rs 600 levels and is looking strong to show Rs 645-650 levels soon. Once it sustains above this levels it would be looking forward to the Rs 685 to Rs 710 levels subject to its results." Bhaumik said that if the SBI Life Insurance results come on the expected lines of the markets, the strip can see a bull run in next three-four months.
"I advise investors to take a buy position in SBI Life Insurance share maintaining a stop loss below Rs 600 levels," concluded Bhaumik.
