Hello Sir,

Hope you are doing well.

India has been a major exporter of processed Shrimps to US; however, the last few years have been bad for the industry with strong competition emerging from Ecuador.

Finally, is there a good news for Shrimps industry stocks listed in India?

Recently, I was reading that US is considering a petition to levy Countervailing (CV) and Anti-Dumping (AD) duties on Ecuador and Indonesia.

If US levies both CV and AD duties on Ecuador, Indian shrimps exporters may regain their lost mojo.

Below, we have shared insights from the Nov’23 presentation of Coastal Corporation Ltd which is a major exporter of processed shrimps and expanding its capacity.


Before that, if you ever find a good stock in an ignored sector with promoter buying from market and increasing his stake, you should sit up and study the company in greater detail…something good might be brewing.

We recently released our new stock recommendation for Alpha/Alpha + members based on the same framework – for details click HERE
