Kanco Tea & Industries Ltd. My Opinion
Kanco tea and Industries limited is in Tea sector. Tea is an evergreen sector. People will continue to drink Tea. It will always have demand.
There are some consumption themes which have become part of Human nature. But it does not mean Company dealing with them will make money. There are few players in Tea area. One of the Company is from prestigious Tata group of Companies.
It has performed just Ok on stock exchanges. Green Tea is new buzz word in Tea industry. It deals only with Black Tea so it will miss the train.I am not invested in this sector as market is already saturated. The demand for tea will rise slowly only. That is why tea stocks are not moving faster and giving less returns over the years
