GCL Securities Ravi Singhal says that most insurance companies had to increase their provisioning during Kovid. Claims increased due to Kovid. This put pressure on the companies. This happened with Star Health as well. But with the decline in the cases of Kovid, it is expected that Star Health will see a strong increase in profit due to reduction in provisioning. GCL Ravi Singhal says that when getting around Rs 725-750, this stock can be bought with a stoploss of Rs 640 with a target of Rs 1000-1100 for 6 months.
