Q2 nos add life to RPG Life Sciences

RPG Life Sciences, which reported fourfold increase in the net profit in the quarter to September 30, 2005, moved up by 4 per cent to finish at Rs 124.10.

According to analysts, following a good result, its low P/E (of around 5) is attracting fresh buying. The traded volume in the stock on Monday nearly doubled to 42,154 from its two-week average.

Ranbaxy betting on less legal expenditure

Ranbaxy Laboratories on Monday made attempts to climb on expectation that it may derive some advantage on its on-going legal battles in the US for Pravastatin 80 mg and Simvastatin 80 mg tablets.

Ranbaxy clarified after trading hours that Para IV certification may entitle it for exclusivity for Pravastatin 80 mg when the product is launched. It further said that it would also now make its case regarding exclusivity for Simvastatin 80 mg, which is expected to come up for hearing in January 2006.

According to sources, the market expectation is that in the coming two quarters of the fiscal, company's legal expenditure abroad may come down because most of the cases have moved beyond the initial stage, which are most expensive.

The stock closed flat at Rs 350.85, after touching the day's high of Rs 360. The traded volume was at 5.53 lakh shares on reported accumulative moves on the BSE.
