    Thanks Davar

    1. Dear Davar bhai.. I do not give buy or sell calls since it is upto you to make that decision. I think both Ambika and FreshTrop have very bright future.. However, your entry price is little higher :-( Ambika is strong with low debt which is a huge positive in the Textile business. The only problem with FreshTrop is that it is climate dependant and that is a risk. If you still have specific questions, please send me an email. God bless..
