One should hold TCS for long term, says Kunal Bothra of LKP.
Bothra told CNBC-TV18, "If you compared TCS, Wipro and Infosys in terms of technicals, TCS is way above its 200 DMA. It is one of the stronger performing stocks. The volumes also have been very good; the price action has been good."
He further added, "If you are looking at the strength or taking a contra view on the market, I think TCS is one stock which one should hold on to long because if the market tries to break that resistance, starts a minor uptrend also these frontline stocks like TCS would give you major upside."
