Balancing Short-Term and Long-Term Investment Strategies

While the stock market debut of Medi Assist Healthcare Services has fueled optimism among investors, analysts suggest adopting a balanced approach for short-term and long-term investment decisions. In the short term, some investors may opt to book profits after listing, while long-term investors could consider holding the stock, setting a stop loss at the issue price of ₹418. Although Medi Assist is a well-established health-tech and insurance-tech firm, there are concerns regarding client concentration and dependence on subsidiaries, which warrant ongoing monitoring. Shivani Nyati, the Head of Wealth at Swastika Investmart Ltd., advises cautious optimism and suggests booking listing gains and exiting positions for those looking to secure profits. However, for those who choose to retain their holdings, it is recommended to set a stop loss at the IPO issue price level.
