Dear Trader

Natco Pharma has strong resistance around 90 levels.However
Natco is on strong fundamental wicket in respect of new product launches
in niche segments.Equity dilution may be a concern in near future but
improved mangement perception may sustain price at higher levels.Only
concern about DPCA from govt. Good support at 81 levels.Uptrend
