2. Those who have invested in Gammon India Ltd (Rs.9.30) can think of switching to Punj Lloyd Ltd, because the scrip is not going anywhere during the last few days.

3. Those of you who have not exited RCom Ltd (Rs.18.30) till now, should keep the last SL as Rs.17.50.I however, find no hope of the stock price revival till August - September or in the short term unless some form of miracle happens. So, best option is to exit RCom and look for greener pastures, elsewhere.
