Here are a few stock ideas from leading brokerage houses in the country.
FinQuest Securities is bullish on Tata Motors and has recommended buy rating on the stock with a target of Rs370 in its November 09, 2012 research report.
"Tata Motors Limited (TML) came out with Q2FY13 results which were below ours as well as consensus estimates. PAT came in at Rs21.1 bn, down 9% Y-o-Y, 21% sequentially, 30% below ours and 11% below consensus estimates. One of the main reasons for this earning miss was the drag from the India business whose EBITDA at Rs7.3 bn was down 21% Y-o-Y as EBITDA margins contracted to 5.2% from 6.7% reported last year. However the continued resilience in JLR margins saved the day for TML. JLR's EBITDA at GBP 486 mn was up 16% Y-o-Y and came in at 14.8% of total revenue. EBITDA margins should have contracted Q-o-Q in Q2FY13 due to adverse product mix (on the back of a major product upgrade, of the flagship Range Rover) but actually it expanded by 30 bps to 14.8%."
Angel Broking is bullish on Simplex Infrastructures and has recommended buy rating on the stock with a target of Rs251 in its November 15, 2012 research report.

Although PLF for the power projects stood at 27% v/s 59% in Q2FY12, additional contribution from the mining segment led to 20% yoy growth in Power revenues at Rs 6.3bn. Lower passenger growth in aviation vertical delaying turnaround prospects for Delhi Airport. Although the near term profitability in Aero segment stands impacted owing to slow traffic growth, however truing up the tariffs of Delhi Airport will negate the impact of slow down in the longer term.

Sell Punjab National Bank (PNB), says Sudarshan Sukhani of s2analytics.com.
Sukhani told CNBC-TV18, "Markets work in context, so we have had two big down days or two large range days. Today is expected to be choppy in any case. So any trading ideas we talk about must be taken in the context that markets are likely to remain choppy. In that choppy condition, you may or may not take a trade but within that overall environment, PNB continues to be a sell. We have been bearish on some of these banks for a long time now and that bearishness continues. If you see a small rally then look to short it."
