Tata Consumer Products (₹763.9)

This stock has been on a recovery since the beginning of April. It saw its latest upswing over the past week where it formed a higher high, indicating a considerable positive momentum.

As it stands, there are no signs of weakness. However, it should be noted that the price band of ₹760-780 is a supply zone and this could weigh on the stock price.

Taking this into account, it is advisable to book profits in the 750-strike call that you hold, which closed at ₹14.5 on Friday. Because, if there is a consolidation or a minor decline from the current level, the option premium might drop.

You can buy call options on this stock again after it decisively breaches the resistance at ₹780. In such a case, the stock price can rally swiftly to ₹830 — a resistance. You can consider the 800- or 820-strike call option.

United Breweries (₹1,479.5)

The stock, which had been in a downtrend since December last year, rebounded from a strong support band last week. This support has largely restricted the downside since June 2021.

Thus, at this price level, the likelihood of the stock seeing a rally is high.

Although ₹1,480 is a hurdle, we expect the stock to break out of this level. It could appreciate to ₹1,580 in the short term. So, continue to hold the 1500-strike call. Liquidate it at the prevailing price when the stock rallies and hits ₹1,580. This is a resistance level against which there might be a decline.

Fresh call buys can be made after the stock surpasses ₹1,580. Resistance above ₹1,580 can be spotted at ₹1,660.

As a risk management measure, you can roll over the call from May expiry to June series if the stock does not reach ₹1,580 in the third week of May. Thus, you can avoid some of the losses arising out of time decay.
