CMP of GMBL on 1st Dec 2018 is 670 on NSE. The stock is close to its important support of 665. It can reach 1000 again in the year 2019 if Maharashtra Government doesn’t include a decision to Ban Liquor in Maharashtra in its Manifesto. Govt is yet to decide GST level for Liquor segment. If it brings CL in a lower bracket, our target will be easily achieved.

We are all aware of ‘Election time malpractices’ by Political parties in India, liquor consumption always increases during this period. Before 2019 Loksabha Election I see tremendous demand in CL category of liquor. GMBL will be the prime beneficiary.

Also in the Winter, December is the month of highest consumption of liquor in India thanks to chilling cold and Christmas-New year vacations.

To Summarize, G.M. Breweries is actually well-placed right now. The risk to Reward ratio is favorable in GMBL and one can definitely invest in it from the short-term view of 850 (most conservative target).
