Futurecaps thinks the company has multibagger properties.
As the company is small cap & not a very aggressive player, we prefer only 1/3 of normal allocation.
Futurecaps recommends 20 to 25 multibaggers per year, we recommend a 25% to 50% allocation of your savings in equity. The stocks recommended here are gone through Analysts of several years experience in stock market. Although they were successful in predicting future multibaggers, the overall stock market is a risky game. So we recommend the reader to put his/her own thoughts & invest wisely.
