"Can we enter/exit a Company just by basing on one quarter results?"

Answer: One quarter results will never give a complete idea about future performance of a Company. But they will give some idea about creeping problems in the Company and relative performance with peers. Just compare Larsen, BHEL, Punj Lloyd and Crompton Greeves. Current Q2 results give some idea on how Companies are performing high interest rates atmosphere. But some sectors like IT, Real Estate and some commodity stocks will underperform in the next 2 quarters. As we don't know much about how Companies will perform in Q3, it is better to depend on Q2 results and guidance. Stock investments depend on sector, results, growth plans, valuations and cash-debt position.
