Stocks to Buy for Diwali 2018

Last diwali to this, the market has been on fire. However, the stock picks of the experts didn't fare that well. This year is even better and bigger. I am now tracking the stock picks of the following companies -
1. Aditya Birla Money
2. Anand Rathi
3. Angel Broking
4. Asit C. Mehta
5. Axis Direct
6. Edelweiss
7. HDFC Securities
8. IDBI Capital
9. IIFL
10. India Bulls
11. Kotak Securities
12. Marwadi Shares
13. Reliance Securities
14. Sharekhan
15. Sushil Finance

There are over 160 companies recommended by these 15 brokers. This itself shows that there is little consensus between the market experts. The most recommended stocks are Maruti Suzuki, Bharat Forge and L&T. It is interesting to note that most brokers have not recommended the shares of the newly listed insurance companies that went public recently.
As with most years, a majority of these highly paid professionals are WAY OFF TARGET!
