Pros do keep both hands on the forehand together for a while as they are turning, but then the left hand comes off and starts pointing to the ball. That would be the stalking or finding. Otherwise it is just the turn and the only stalking is with the eye, which has been described as "keep your eye on the ball" for I don't know how many decades now.
Several months ago I suggested a definition for "stalking" as being between the unit turn/coil and racquet take-back. Some, like Ash, thought it was worthy. (That is, he thought the group had made some sort of agreement/progress toward a meaning for it.) Just a reminder.
Up your backhand.
