The last three months have been excellent for the entire pharmaceutical space. This has been one of our favourites since early May when it was hovering around 305-310. The stock price has already more than doubled from there and the momentum in the last five-six days just took off. But our immediate targets of 650-680 have already been met now.Also, the risk-to-reward ratio will not be favourable for fresh buying. Hence, we would rather advise taking some money off the table and then reassess the situation for a while.
This stock started moving upwards gradually from early April, which was then followed by a long consolidation.
However, post the India-China clash along the line of actual control on June 15, the entire defence space started buzzing and in the process, the stock prices not only came out of the consolidation phase but also went on to experience a spectacular rally in merely a month’s time.
Now, the overall structure looks extremely sturdy but again due to steep rally, the risk-reward will not be attractive for buyers.
The ideal strategy would be to stay put in case of an existing position and wait for a decent decline to accumulate this stock.
This stock has been one of the wealth destroyers and hence, we have stopped venturing into it ever since the entire fiasco happened a couple of years back.
We continue to avoid this counter as we do not see any real interest from market participants. As far as levels are concerned, 33 to 24 would be seen as a consolidation range.
Ace investor and the owner of the supermarket chain D-Mart Radhakishan Damani bought a 1.03 percent stake in defence sector player Astra Microwave Products in the June quarter of the financial year 2021.
As we just said, the defence space has come into the limelight in the recent past and this stock after completing its long accumulation pattern known as ‘Rounding Bottom’ finally confirmed a breakout last month.
The higher degree chart looks promising and hence, one can use a decline towards 115-105 to accumulate this counter. We will not be surprised to see this stock marching towards 2017 highs of 150-155.
After undergoing a stressful period for more than a couple of years, the stock has shown some signs of revival and has already undergone a base building process.
We are witnessing a steady up move in the form of ‘Higher Highs Higher Lows’ in the recent past, indicating a move towards 50-55 over the next few weeks. On the lower side, 36-35 has now become a sacrosanct support zone.
