Six months Target is Rs.120/-.
(A profit of around 12% : Is the target frustating you???)

Just Kidding...........
If it is so easy to predict the target it will not lie at 100/-.

Just Hang on ........
You will not incur loss for sure ........

Happy Investing ..........

Targets r totally wrong. Nobody knows what will be tomorrow of stocks then how can we predict its future. And whatever shareking says is absolutely wrong. Even Finance Ministry does't know what is future of Indian Economy. Our economy is totally dependent on Foreing Mkts which is the worst
