Saral Gyan Recommendation (30 Aug'11)

i) Management has been conservative in past but now with new developments with expansion plans for their existing facilities and set up of new plants at new locations give visibility for revenue growth in coming years. New facilities at new location will also give opportunities to company to move into new regions expanding their customer reach.

ii) The Management holds 72.96% equity in the company and has been continuously increasing its stake at current valuations (increased holding by 1% during last one year) which gives confidence of growth prospects in coming quarters.

iii) The stock is available at low valuations, existing P/E ratio of 6.5 make the stock valuations attractive while comparing it with peer stocks like Nilkamal and Supreme Industries.

iv) The operating margins and net profit has grown significantly. Since last 2 years, company has improved its margin and profit margins of 11-13% seems sustainable even after expansion due to less dependence on debt, currently cash balance is in excess of total debt of the company. No equity dilution since last many years is another positive.

v) At current market price of Rs 204.55, dividend yield works out to be more than 2% (Company has announced Rs. 4.50 dividend per share). On equity of Rs. 6 crore the estimated annualized EPS for FY 2011-12 works out to Rs. 38 and the Book value per share is Rs. 139.16. At a CMP of Rs. 204.55, stock price to book value is 1.47.
