However, this continuous bleed has put some doubt into the minds of bulls who had been following 'buy on dips' strategy thinking overall the market is bullish. But, the brokerage firms have been following the minute details of the listed companies and they have given the following five shares to buy for the share market investors. Those top 5 shares are as follows:
1] Buy Equitas Holdings Ltd for 32 pct gains, advises Yes Securities
Equitas Holdings delivered a strong performance in the fourth quarter ended March 2019 with RoA further improving to 1.8 per cent. The strong earnings growth of 97 per cent YoY, although on a depressed base, was underpinned by an acceleration in AuM growth and despite mobilisation and a contained opex growth. Overall revenue growth stood at 38 per cent YoYdespite lending spread coming off.
On the suggestion to the stock market investors in regard to the Equitas Holdings shares Rajiv Mehta, Executive Vice President at Yes Securities said, "Fundamentals of the counter suggests an upside momentum for around 32 per cent in 12-month perspective. The counter may touch the Rs 165 per stock levels in this period." Equitas Holdings share price was at Rs 126.5 per stock after the market close on Tuesday.
Another brokerage firm Motilal Oswal has given a target of Rs 160 per stock in the same period for the counter.
2] Buy SBI for 24 pct gains, advises HDFC Securities
Led by high W/Os (around Rs 173bn) and lower slippages (~Rs 80bn, 1.50%), GNPAs dipped ~8% QoQ (Rs 1.72tn, 7.5%). LLPs were ~24% higher QoQ, resulting in a massive ~19% dip in NNPAs (~3%). Calculated coverage jumped ~500bps QoQ to ~62%. SMA I & II nearly halved QoQ to ~36bps, ex-slippages, driven by the upgrade of a large power exposure. Reducing pools of identified stress should reign in near term slippages. We have factored in slippages of 1.80% over FY 19-21E. The glide path is clearer now.
On the suggestion to the stock market investors in regard to the SBI shares Darpin Shah, Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "Fundamentals of the counter suggests an upside momentum for around 24 per cent in the long-term perspective. The counter may touch the Rs 383 per stock levels in this period." SBI share price was at Rs 306.75 per stock after the market close on Tuesday.

EBITDA was down 20.7% YoY at INR 437mn, 28% lower than our estimates.

5] Buy Muthoot Finance for 14 pct gains, advises Edelweiss
Muthoot Finance reported a mixed Q4FY19—growth trajectory improved with a higher spread leading to PAT outperformance, whereas higher opex and rise in GNPLs disappointed. Key highlights: a) After a soft Q3FY19, gold AUM grew >5% QoQ to INR336bn. b) Better yields (stronger collections, lower discounts) along with a steady funding cost lifted NIM >100bps YoY. c) Opex cost rose sharply (up >22% YoY) across line items. d) Volatility in asset quality persisted with stage-3 assets rising to 2.72% (1.96% in Q3FY19). e) Other businesses – home finance, Belstar, insurance broking – are scaling up well, but the current environment posed challenges. Systemic liquidity tightness did not impact Muthoot much, as evident from improved growth momentum and rising share of CP to 18% in H2FY19 (from 12% in H1FY19).
