Here's what Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart, recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:

Reliance Industries: Buy | Target: Rs 2,950-3,000

RIL hit a fresh high after global investment bank Morgan Stanley upgraded its target price to Rs 3,253, signaling about a 20 per cent upside in the counter.

Technically, RIL is in a strong bullish momentum and is outperforming the market where it is continuing to rise upwards after breaking out from a bullish Flag formation on the daily chart.

The pattern target comes around Rs 2,950-3,000 which coincides with an upsloping trendline.

On the downside, Rs 2,680-2,640 has become an immediate demand zone. Investors should continue to hold this stock with an immediate target of Rs 2,950 level.

Nestle India: Hold | Stop Loss: Rs 17,800

Nestle India said that its net profit fell 1.25 per cent year-on-year (YoY) to Rs 594.71 crore in March quarter compared with Rs 602.25 crore in the same quarter last year.

Shares of Nestle India closed flat on Thursday with a negative bias. The stock has been an underperformer in the last one year (up a little over 6 per cent) compared to over 20 per cent upside seen in Nifty50 in the same period.
