Drug Manufacturer Lupin

Hello Friends in this days market is behaving like never before one day it turns positive due to global news and very second day some bad news comes from global market and market suddenly give up. Nobody has idea that either on upside or downside. Even global fund managers also have no idea that how stock market will behave in near days. Global uncertainty is also playing a key role in market. From all over the world global economic macro data shows that global market is slowing down heavily. Consumption slows down already auto sales numbers also reflects it.

If we see in terms of investment opportunity there are some stocks that could run in future not suddenly but will run in longer period of time.

Today I’m also going to talk about a company which has faced lot of USFDA issues for their plants. Yes I am talking about Lupin.

Lupin is a significant player in the therapy areas of Gynaecology, Cardiovascular, Diabetology, Asthma, Paediatric, Central Nervous System (CNS), Gastro Intestinal (GI), Anti-Infective (AI) and Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs).
