Although the price of JMART has been continuously down since November 16, 2022 until it touched 40 baht on November 22, it is believed that BTS Group Holdings Plc (BTS) has still continued to invest more with the JMART group.

It’s a good Buy at any price, so maybe the story of VGI selling out shares is a similar story.

But what can be determined is that each company has a good performance to reach the target. We believe that in the end, the answer to all questions is the results of implementation,” said Mr Adisak.
