Future prospectus :  The fundamentals are stretched because of acquisition of Ranbaxy. Solvency ratio and as return on equity is in bad condition. It is affecting the stock price. plus recent views from USFDA on Halol plant making it more and more tuf. But there are some sign of revival. the company is making profit on operating level. on cash basis though, it is looking bad and the decision to give profit even when the company is making loss, is not looking good. Cyclically adjusted PE is around 22 as I am writing it, which is good enough if your investment time is long term.
