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


Sudarshan Sukhani, advises traders to buy ICICI Bank on dip.

Sukhani told CNBC-TV18, "I have been upbeat on ICICI Bank and I maintain my bullish position. Today the markets are also soft. ICICI Bank is an index heavyweight. It gets influenced by extraneous factors. So I would not take this dip as some kind of a turning point. I would assume that the stock price has more upside here, so I would be a buyer on this dip. Whenever this correction ends the trade is to go long there."
