in all due respect i think what MW is trying to say is that Plantation Stocks are worth re-looking at. But IMO although theoritically they are of the same, but i tend to disagree because the economics for TEA is different from India to Srilanka.

The Government & the Tea Minister(Plantation) has to sit with the Management Companies and sort out wages issues, This will affect the profitability in the longer run if its corrected. They need to devise a proper and just mechanism for wage increase as most Management companies highlight this in their AR. Plus government must allow tax concessions for CAPEX be it vehicles used for production, machinery importation etc.

If these hiccups are solved then our Plantation sector Stocks can have a decent run, as our TEAs are best  Very Happy

Lowering Interest was a positive move, and the yield on this would be seen in future quarterly reports

SHARK Day by day you are giving good ideas. This quarter could be good for tea producers. But Long term sustainability is important. TPL and WATA are leading now. Should watch their boxes.

WATA i will ignore now
TPL is worth at 20-25 levels, if you hold your nervs we could collect around these levels if we are that lucky.
KGAL - chances could be 90Rs or 60 in extreme.
KOTA - is on technical BUYING side for me.

MASK & MADU - are speculative, so trade with care

Brokers are divided. One broker following ELPL, NAMU, MADU and KOTA. Another prefers BALA. Did anyone get some reports? Cheers.
