Here are a few stock ideas from leading brokerage houses in the country.

Geometric, Divis Labs:

Buy Geometric and Divis Laboratories , says Sudarshan Sukhani,

Sukhani told CNBC-TV18, "Since this is a choppy market, in a choppy market like this we have both kind of trades selling as well as buying. One of the most obvious sectors for buying starting today should be the IT sector. I have been upbeat on the CNX-IT index for two to three weeks now, three weeks or more and that upbeatness has finally percolated to the middle level IT stocks."

Indraprastha Gas:

One can buy Indraprastha Gas from the next six to eight months angle. It can test Rs 280-290, says Ambareesh Baliga, Independent Analyst.

Baliga told CNBC-TV18, " Infosys stumped most of us who were negative on the stock for a while. Right now with the sort of the move which we have seen, 17 percent move, I will not shift from TCSto Infosys at this point of time since it has already moved up so much. I don't see much more upside from here. I would wait for one more quarter results to see whether it continues or not."


SP Tulsian, advises traders to short Infosys  around Rs 2710- 2715.

Tulsian told CNBC-TV18, "It will be wrong on any traders' part to go long on Infosys at more than Rs 2,700 because the rise which we have been seeing of 15-16 percent today is a combination of both that is short covering as well as building up of the long positions and in building up the long positions you see the exuberance also happening because the traders those who just follow the trend, as till yesterday they were following on the short side, today they are following it on the long side."

IndusInd Bank:

Aditya Birla Money is bullish on IndusInd Bank  and has recommended accumulate rating on the stock with a target of Rs 461 in its January 11, 2013 research report.
