With the stellar rally in Adani Power coming to an end last month, investors are in a dilemma as to whether they should buy, sell or hold the stock due to highly volatile market conditions.

Here's a look at what analysts said about the prospects of the stock after the recent crash.

The stock seems to be more resilient in comparison to the other midcap counter, though prices haven't reached the 23.6 per cent retracement of the entire correction rally since March 20 at Rs 268. Short-term trend might have changed to negative and the next crucial support level of Rs 220 38.2 per cent retracement might arrest the corrective decline. There are no signs of bottoming out on the oscillator front. For investors, the amount should be less than 220. Adani Power is 25 per cent less than its 52 week high. The stock is currently facing selling pressure and is currently forming an inside bar. If the selling continues, the stock could reach 210 levels in the coming days. It can be bought at the support area of Rs 210 with a very small stop loss as there is a general rise in demand for power and this can benefit the stock in the near term. Adani Power is witnessing selling pressure despite the weak equity market. The stock is showing the possibility of lower level buying on technical parameters. The stock may gain steam in the near term for the target of Rs 280 -- 300. The double blow of low growth with high inflation, infrastructure, and power stocks has taken a beating from their all-time highs, including Adani Power. The immediate support of Rs 238 remains. A dip near Rs 205 -- Rs 214 should be better levels to buy for the higher targets of Rs 282 -- Rs 320 in the coming weeks.
