950. UR  Apr 26, 2010 9:53:35 AM IST
What is the time period of 'short to medium term'
949. avishan  Apr 25, 2010 9:12:49 PM IST
an EPS of Rs 10 in the last quarter, projected price for the short-medium term 500-600
948. sadiq  Apr 25, 2010 3:23:31 PM IST
Thanks UR, I hope my recommendation benefits both of us. I am also holding Persistent in my portfolio. I suggest to sleep over this stock for next 2 months and do not pay attention to any news positive or negative.
947. RInvestor  Apr 25, 2010 10:41:29 AM IST
A dividend of 2.50/share is not comes to 25%.Further the company has come up with excellent set of numbers...I expect the stock to rally to 450-500 in a month. Further it will continue to post excellent numbers for the next two quarters...
946. jai   Apr 24, 2010 7:30:46 PM IST

Since listing persistent is around 400 and no major movement is seen in the stock and going down slowly slowly day by day.
Just company decleared dividend about Rs.2.5 per share, I think it will come down slowly slowly, what we think a upside movemenw will come. Persistent trading activity shown it will down to 310-325 in month time.

It is better to come out from persistent and switch over to Banking stock like ICICI bank, State bank of Bikaner and Jaipur, HDFC, SBI.

945. UR  Apr 24, 2010 2:54:51 PM IST
Dear Sadiq,

Based on your recommendation I am holding this stock for short term(2months),let us see what happen.
944. pul  Apr 24, 2010 11:53:42 AM IST
Rs.2.50 dividend per share
943. RInvestor  Apr 23, 2010 5:13:29 PM IST
April 23 2010: Persistent Systems Q410 Revenue Grows 15.2% Y-o-Y; Fiscal 2010 Profits Increased by 70.2%

942. sadiq  Apr 22, 2010 1:09:29 PM IST
Dear UR, my expectation is that within 2 months it will reach 450+. These expectations are based on the following factors
1. The company has above average fundamentals
2. Compared to other stocks in the IT sector Persistent is under valued
3. We did see it cross 420+ on listing day
4. it has strong support levels at 390 which is 80 rs more than than upper ipo price band of 310 (i.e. 25% more). Having this kind of response at a time when all other listed ipos have gone below issue price confirms the strong fundamentals of the company.
5. SBI Mutual Fund has bought more than 5.47 lakh shares of persistent at 423+ rs.
941. UR  Apr 22, 2010 9:35:13 AM IST
Dear Sadiq,

what is your expected time to reach this stock to 450+ and what are the factors
940. sadiq  Apr 21, 2010 4:21:51 PM IST
dear UR, i am not saying that there will not be further down than 410. all i am saying is that you can sell this at 450+ levels if you wait.
939. UR  Apr 21, 2010 3:48:20 PM IST
Dear Sadiq,

You mean persistent share is safe at the price of Rs.410 and there will not be further down in this share price
938. sadiq  Apr 21, 2010 1:11:43 PM IST
Dear UR, why are you so worried about Persistent. Just relax and sleep over it. Now they will announce dividend on 23rd April 2010 (Friday), so enjoy the dividend and your avg. cost will also reduce after you get the dividend. SO just leave the shares of persistent as it is and enjoy the real cream when the time comes.
937. UR  Apr 21, 2010 10:50:17 AM IST
It was told number of big MF companies are taking position in this stock and it will move like ARSS,but it is showing down trend day to day.Is it right price(Rs410)to hold the shares for some time or better to move some other shares.Please give right feedback.
936. ds  Apr 19, 2010 12:53:16 PM IST
dear friends i have 6324 shares of persistent @405.25 average what should i do right now i am thinking of waiting for next 6 months
