In last one month, SBI Life shares have fallen more than 10 per cent, catching attention of positional investors who are looking for value picks available at attractive valuations.

According to stock market experts, SBI Life has reported strong quarterly numbers as its provisioning has gone down in the wake of ease in Covid-stress.

It has shed around 10 per cent after hitting new 52-week high. The stock has strong support at 1055 levels and one can buy SBI Life shares at current levels for short term target of 1300 maintaining stop loss at 1055 apiece levels.” He advised investors to keep accumulating till the stock is above 1080 apiece levels.

Advising positional investors to invest for long-term; Avinash Gorakshkar, Head of Research at Profitmart Securities said, “SBI Life is a subsidiary of State Bank of India and after listing of LIC shares, other insurance stocks are expected to face difficulty in attracting high net worth investors for some time. So, positional investors are advised to keep long-term view and invest in SIP mode. This will enable investors to maximise one’s benefit in long-term.”
