EID Parry India Stock Performance
Over the years the stock has given positive returns to investors. Though the movement was often marred with negative returns or movement for number of years testing patience of investors as well.
The long consolidation and down turn is justified as Sugar is a cyclic sector. None the less it has given 18 times return in past 16 years or so making money for investors. The Stock also gives more than 1.5% dividend at current market price.
Any stock which gives positive returns along with consistent dividend is best investment pick for investors.
