Key Concerns & Risks (05th Aug 2012)

1. The Indian market is becoming intensely competitive with cheap imports from China predominantly in the simple water handling pump market & presence of multi-national companies in the high end of industrial segment.

2. The Indian companies would have to continuously invest in R&D, Manufacturing and Product Technology in order to improve product efficiency and cost effectiveness to retain and grow their market share.

3. There is going to be pressure on margins due to steep increase in input costs & Interest rates. The Government approach to rein in the Inflation is having a dampening effect on the growth of the economy and sluggishness towards reforms is hampering the inflow of Foreign Investments.

4. Cheap Imports backed by favorable commercial terms from China pose a definite risk to the Domestic industry.

Saral Gyan Recommendation (05th Aug 2012)

1. Steady growth in Indian economy especially increased investments in infrastructure & development projects will continue to provide enough opportunities. International market also offers good opportunities in niche market despite sluggish economic scenario.

2. Roto Pumps valuations are attractive compared to other listed players like KSB pumps, WPIL, Kirloskar and Shakti pumps. Roto pumps is trading at PE of 4.5 whereas other companies like KSB pumps and WPIL are trading at PE multiple of above 14 and 16 respectively.

3. In terms of revenue, Roto pump is a smaller player compared to its peers. With recent capacity expansion programme; there is enormous potential for the company to scale up its business. Another positive about the company is its operating margins, Roto pumps operating margins are better compared to other listed companies in the same segment.

4. As per our estimates, PEL can deliver bottom line of 96 million for full financial year 2012 – 13, annualized EPS of Rs. 31 with forward P/E ratio of 3.4 X for FY 2012-13, which makes stock an attractive and safe bet at current market price.

5. Company has paid regular interim dividends to share holders since last 7 years, dividend payout is increased from 100% in 2005 to 250% in 2011.

6. On equity of Rs. 30.91 million the estimated annualized EPS for FY 12-13 works out to Rs. 31 and the Book Value per share is Rs. 99.61. At current market price of Rs. 105, stock price to book value is 1.05 and with dividend yield of 2.4%, valuations are attractive with limited downside risk.

Considering attractive valuations and the growth potential of the company, Saral Gyan Team recommends “BUY” for Roto Pumps Ltd. for a target of Rs. 220 over a period of 18-24 months.

Buying Strategy:

  • 50% at current market price of 105
  • 50% at price range of 83-85 (If stock price falls during market correction)

Through Hidden Gems and Value Picks, we are providing you opportunities to invest in such small / mid cap stocks today. Infosys, Pantaloon, Dabur, Glenmark were the small cap stocks in past and today are the well known companies falling under mid and large cap space.

The stocks we reveal through Hidden Gems & Value Picks are companies that are either under-researched or not covered by other brokers and research firms. We keep on updating our subscribers on our past recommendations suggesting them whether to hold / buy or sell stocks on the basis of company's performance and future growth outlook.

Time has shown that smart investors have made their fortune by investing in equities in long term. None other asset class can match giving you such extra ordinary returns. Yes, its important for you to invest in right set of companies at right price with medium to long term perspective. If you think to invest in stocks for period of 6 months or 12 months, we suggest you to stay out of stock market because you are not investing, you are betting on volatility of stock market which could be risky.

Small Cap Index has not delivered negative returns for 2 consecutive years in past 16 years

We believe this is a blessing in disguise because for the first time in many years, several small companies having robust business fundamentals are available at attractive valuations. Do you know in last 16 years, small cap index have not given negative returns for 2 consecutive years. In 2018, BSE Small Cap Index has given negative returns of -23.4% and since beginning of this year, index is down by another -0.7%. Below is the table which indicates Small Cap Index returns YoY since 1st April 2003 (the data is available from April 2003 onwards only in BSE).
Whenever, Small Cap Index delivered significantly high negative returns in a particular year during last 16 years, it has delivered double digit positive returns the very next year. While Nifty and Sensex which are hovering near their life time high, Small & Mid Cap Index have underperformed by wide margin. The divergence between Sensex / Nifty and Small & Mid Cap Index will not last for long going forward considering valuations gap emerging between large caps in comparison to mid & small cap stocks.

Its important to understand that long term gains come in equities with such short term pain. We have seen such a severe correction in small and mid cap stocks after 2011. With continuous fall in stock prices during this year,  valuations of many small and mid caps become attractive to reasonable. In fact, many good companies are available at valuations which look very attractive considering the earning growth these companies are expected to deliver over next 2 years. This is not the time to sell in panic, but to accumulate good companies available at discounted valuations. Moreover, we believe broader market has already bottomed out in Feb 2019 post Pulwama attack and is now forming a base, hence we can see renewed buying interest in small & mid caps once sentiments improves. Bad sentiments will not last for ever, its time for long term investors (2-5 years) to start accumulating good quality stocks which after a long time are becoming available at attractive valuations.
