“The stock is presently below all the three key moving averages. The most recent downtick is following its breakdown from 4050-4450; the technical targets out of this breakdown can be put near 3550 levels. The stock is very near to this level,” Milan Vaishnav, CMT, MSTA, Consulting Technical Analyst and founder, Gemstone Equity Research & Advisory Services, told FinancialExpress.com. “That being said, there are no triggers for any fresh entry on this stock; either on the long or the short side. Shorting this stock is now not advised as it may not offer any favorable risk-reward ration. For longs, one must wait for any initial signs of some potential bottom in place,” Vaishnav added.
“The stock has been under pressure due to the aggressive selling by FPIs across the board. The FPI holding in Dixon has come down from 20% to 16% over the last year and it looks like it is bearing the full brunt of FPI selling,” Abhay Agarwal, Founder, and Fund Manager, Piper Serica, SEBI Registered Portfolio Management Service Provider said. Factors such as ED freezing accounts of Dixon’s customer Xiaomi, and slowdown in demand for mobile phones amid supply crunch will keep pressure on the stock’s price in the near term, it will also provide a very good opportunity to long-term investors since Dixon is a clear leader in the rapidly growing EMS space, Agarwal added.
