According to brokerage firm Anand Rathi, "Strong demand for key products such as Metformin, Paracetamol, and Ibuprofen due to COVID-19 has translated to a robust Q1 for Granules.”
Manish Srivastava, Senior Technical Analyst at Rudra Shares & Stock Brokers has a buy on Granules India with target price at Rs 397. The current fall has been arrested at a 20-day simple moving average with the formation of a hammer candlestick pattern and the price has also taken support at the previous top.
