Value investors should always foresee the structural shift happening in the business. We see that its happening now in Indian markets. At least expected to happen !! Such markets rally for years. Long term investors should rightly select companies and not simply jump to any stock which is seeing north direction.
GPL has good market share and supply products for sectors which are mostly coupled with GDP growth. This seems to the right time to invest in GPL for us. With well experienced management its just matter of time to get noticed by some big investors and then the real story begins for the stock.
The diamond is just on a sale. Its available at an discount and nobody is realizing this gem. By the time you realize it, it would be far more costlier !!
Suggest to go for SIP .If we see any mild corrections post-budget, GPL should be accumulated.At CMP ~200 it is not yet late to get in.
