So even at these levels it looks an interesting buy on a momentum point of view, Rs 65 is a very good support that the stock has built for itself now. The only key criteria on this stock is to really get past the recent highs that is has made; it could just double top so that’s the only risk that we are running, so Rs 75 is a level, past which we could be in a safe zone.”
