Eid Mubarak - Grab Discount upto 30% & Valuable Freebies!

Dear Reader,

Saral Gyan team wishes you Eid Mubarak!

The country is celebrating Eid-al-Fitr today following the sighting of the crescent moon that signals the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

The date of Eid al-Fitr varies each year as it is based on the sighting of the new moon, but it usually falls on the first day of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. The precise date of this festival is decided by the sighting of the crescent moon. As part of the festivities, Muslims gather in mosques or open spaces to offer special prayers, known as Eid prayers. They also give gifts, and share food with family and friends. The day is a time for forgiveness and celebration.

In addition to the special prayers and festive gatherings, there are many traditional customs associated with Eid al-Fitr. One of the most important is the giving of Eid al-Fitr or Zakat al-Fitr, which is a form of charity given to the poor and needy. This is usually given before the Eid prayers, and it is meant to ensure that everyone has enough to eat and celebrate during the holiday. Food plays a special role in the festivities with some of the most popular Eid dishes like biryani, kebabs and sweet treats like sheer khurma and ras malai on the platter.

We are glad to inform you that we decided to pass on the maximum benefits by offering great savings and valuable freebies on occasion of Eid festival. We suggest our members to consider current situation (post severe correction in small & mid caps over last 24 months) as a buying opportunity and invest in good quality small and mid cap stocks.

4. Peer Group Comparison (As on 30 Dec 2018)

Kabra Extrusion Technik Competitors

5. Key Concerns / Risks (As on 30 Dec 2018)

i) Domestic extrusion machinery segment is highly fragmented, characterized by presence of various small and micro players which limits pricing power. Therefore, the company is exposed to competition from domestic players and imported extrusion machinery. Also, the segment is technology-intensive and is susceptible to the risk of technological obsolescence. However, the same is mitigated partly through company’s technological tie-ups and collaboration with international players such as Battenfeld-cincinnati (Germany), Unicore Gmbh, Extron Mecanor, Penta Srl Italy. 

ii) The demand for extrusion machinery is linked to the capital expenditure (capex) programme of plastic products manufacturers. The performance of the company depends on the growth and demand in the end user industries i.e. plastic pipes, irrigation and agriculture pipes and flexible packaging and their capex cycle. Any slowdown or delay in the capex of these industries can have negative implications on the company’s business.

6. Saral Gyan Recommendation (As on 30 Dec 2018)

i) The plastic pipe industry has registered growth of ~15 percent and is likely to maintain the same growth rate in coming years. Within the industry, the organized plastic pipe segment is likely to register even higher growth driven by shift from unorganized to organized segment. Moreover, government focus on agriculture, micro-irrigation, low cost housing projects and pick up in infrastructure growth will augur well for overall demand of plastic pipes. Moreover, packaging film industry is also expected to grow at a healthy rate, driven by food industry, personal care and pharma products. Kabra Extrusion technik being the largest player in the plastic extrusion machinery with diversified product portfolio backed by strong management team is expected to be the direct beneficiary. 

ii) The company continued its focus on marketing activities and strengthening its agent network by participating in various trade fairs and exhibitions. It has made significant inroads in many new markets. During FY17-18, the company participated in exhibitions like PlastIndia, Plast Eurasia, Plastic & Rubber – Indonesia, Plast Alger, etc. to showcase its product portfolio to strengthen its geographical base as well as clientele. The company demonstrated live and launched Smart Faktory – A digital extrusion platform at PlastIndia show - 2018. Smart Faktory is a value adding part of production process, generates real customer benefits by exploring new opportunities from smart data to ensure real time control & decision for optimisation of product as well as operations.

iii) The company has also initiated effective steps to widen its products portfolio by entering into joint venture with M/s. Penta SRL, Italy. Joint venture company, Penta Auto Feeding India Ltd. has already started manufacturing and supply of auto feeding systems. The company has also undertaken manufacturing of belling machines through its subsidiary, Kabra Mecanor Belling Technik Pvt. Ltd., and manufacture corrugators with technology from Unicor GmbH, Germany. The company has also imported technology to manufacture flat-drip laterals extrusion lines from Metzerplas Industries Ltd., Israel. 

iv) The company has registered sales CAGR of 8.3%, profit CAGR of 18.9% with ROE of 11.3% over last 5 years. We expect company performance to improve going forward with increase in capex in micro-irrigation, low cost housing sector and pick up in infrastructure growth.
Kabra Extrusion Technik  Return Ratios
v) Kabra Extrusion technik has ventured into corrugated pipes with its collaboration with Unicor. Corrugated pipe is one of the fastest growing segments in the pipe industry considering its higher acceptance over cement pipes in sewage and drainage applications. The company has also introduced other new products like pipe extrusion lines for foam core pipes, co-rotating twin screw extruders and compounding machines and lines for lead free compounds and processing applications. Expansion of the product range across the value chain is expected to augur well for the company in medium to long term. 

vi) Kabra Extrusion technik through constant R&D and Innovation has introduced several products and solutions for the first time in the plastic extrusion industry since 1970. Moreover, the company is having global collaborations and technical tie ups with the leading companies in plastic industry, as Battenfeld-Cincinnati (GermanyAustria-USA), Penta SRL (Italy), Greiner (Austria), Unicor (Germany), Extron Mecanor (Finland). Long term partnerships with global suppliers for access to latest technology and to increase product offerings will support company to stay ahead of the competition. This is critical as technological obsolescence could be a key risk in the industry. 

vii) The company is serving business requirement of many reputed players in the plastic pipe and flexible packaging industry. Companies like Supreme Industries, Finolex Industries, Astral Poly Technik, Uflex, Ashirwad Pipes, Prince Pipes Systems etc are clients of Kabra Extrusion technik. As end industry grows with rise in demand and shift of business from unorganized to organized players, Kabra Extrusion technik with its diversified client base and strong execution track record is expected to grow as well. 

viii) As on Sept’18, promoter’s shareholding in the company is 57.09% without pledging of any shares. Promoters have increased their shareholding by 0.4% over last 6 months, increase in shareholding by promoters is positive indicating their confidence in future growth prospects of the company. Institutional shareholding in the company is low at 1.19%.
Kabra Extrusion Technik Promoter Shareholding
ix) The company is paying regular dividend to its shareholders. It paid dividend of Rs. 2 per share for FY2017-18. At current price, dividend yield is 2.78 percent. Moreover, the company has rewarded shareholders by issuing bonus share in the ratio of 1:1 in the year 2010. 

x) As per our estimates, Kabra Extrusion technik Ltd can deliver net profit of Rs. 23.45 crores in FY 2019-20 with annualized EPS of Rs. 7.35. At current price of 72.15, stock is available at forward P/E multiple of 9.8X based on FY19-20 earnings. Company’s valuation looks attractive considering expected increase in its profitability with rise in Govt spending towards improvement in rural infrastructure with focus on low cost housing and sanitary facilities. 

xi) On equity of Rs. 15.95 crore, the estimated annualized EPS for FY 19-20 works out to Rs. 7.35 and the Book Value per share is Rs. 73.19. At current market price of Rs. 72.15, stock price to book value is 0.99.

Considering secular growth opportunity in the agriculture and infrastructure industry with government focus on micro-irrigation, low cost housing projects and infrastructure development, double digit growth expected in flexible packaging industry driven by rising demand of packaged food products, personal care products and pharmaceuticals, company’s strong track record in installation and after sales service of plastic extrusion machinery, rich product portfolio, experienced management team with back up of global collaborations with the leading companies in plastic industry and and a debt free balance sheet, Saral Gyan team recommends “Buy” on Kabra Extrusion technik Ltd at current market price of Rs. 72.15 for target of Rs. 145 over a period of 12 to 24 months.

Why Share Price is Not Important while Buying Stocks?

Dear Reader,

Why is a stock that cost Rs. 50 cheaper than another stock priced at Rs. 10?

This question opens a point that often confuses beginning investors: The per-share price of a stock is thought to convey some sense of value relative to other stocks. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

In fact, except for its use in some calculations, the per-share price is virtually meaningless to investors doing fundamental analysis. If you follow the technical analysis route to stock selection, it’s a different story, but for now let’s stick with fundamental analysis.

The reason we aren’t concerned with per-share price is that it is always changing and, since each company has a different number of outstanding shares, it doesn’t give us a clue to the value of the company. For that number, we need the market capitalization or market cap number.

The market cap is found by multiplying the per-share price times the total number of outstanding shares. This number gives you the total value of the company or stated another way, what it would cost to buy the whole company on the open market.

Here’s an example:

Stock price: Rs. 50

Outstanding shares: 5 Crores 

Market cap: Rs. 50 x 50,000,000 = Rs. 250 Crores

To prove our opening sentence, look at this second example:

Stock price: Rs. 10

Outstanding shares: 30 Crores 

Market cap: Rs. 10 x 300,000,000 = Rs. 300 Crores

This is how you should look at these two companies for evaluation purposes. Their per-share prices tell you nothing by themselves.

What does market cap tell you?

First, it gives you a starting place for evaluation. When looking a stock, it should always be in a context. How does the company compare to others of a similar size in the same industry?

The market generally classifies stocks into three categories:

• Small Cap under Rs. 1000 Crores 

• Mid Cap Rs. 1000 - Rs. 10000 Crores

• Large Cap above Rs. 10000 Crores

Some analysts use different numbers and others add micro caps and mega caps, however the important point is to understand the value of comparing companies of similar size during your evaluation. You will also use market cap in your screens when looking for a certain size company to balance your portfolio. Don’t get hung up on the per-share price of a stock when making your evaluation. It really doesn't tell you much. Focus instead on the market cap to get a picture of the company’s value in the market place.

IMP Note: This article is written to safe-guard our readers who are new to stock market, and make them understand about the actual facts. We keep on receiving mails from our readers regarding the price range of stocks we covers under our Hidden Gems or Value Picks service. The misconception in mind of new investors is regarding the stock price, majority of them believe that if stock price is less, like below Rs. 50 or even below Rs. 10, changes of stock price appreciation is very high and they can buy more no. of shares rather than buying a limited no. of shares of high priced stock. 

We have a subscriber base covering almost all major states in India and from 20 other countries across globe. During the last 10 years we have interacted with several investors seeking multibagger return from stocks. 

It was 17th Dec 2011, we recommended Cera Sanitaryware as Hidden Gem stock of the month at price of Rs 157, later it went up to Rs. 450 in period of 15 months. Based on strong quarterly numbers, attractive valuations and consistent performance, we recommended buy again in the range of 400-450 which was taken as a surprise by our members as we received several queries and feedback.

Below are some of the common queries of our subscribers which often lead them to opportunity losses.

1. How come a stock priced at Rs 450 can generate Multibagger returns?
2. Cera is almost 3 times moving from 170 to 450, why are you suggesting buy again?
3. Where is the room to generate Multibagger return from this level?
4. I don’t like such high-priced stock, please give me stocks priced below Rs. 100.
5. I want to buy more no. of shares, hence please recommend low price stocks below Rs. 10.

Cera Sanitaryware touched its life time high of Rs 6450 last year and currently trading around Rs. 5500, Cera is a 40-Bagger stock in 11 years from our initial recommendation and is a 12X stock from our reiterated buy at Rs. 450, which was not liked by our subscribers.

The story does not end here, there is a long way to go. Our suggested stocks is with a view-point of 1-3 years at least and not just 6-9 months. If fundamentals of the company are intact, we would not suggest our members to do profit booking or exit. Investors who stayed away just because of high price simply missed yet another opportunity. We held Cera for long term and suggested complete profit booking to our members in the stock around 3500 - 4000 levels in 2017.

There is a general misconception among the investors that high priced stocks can't generate multibagger returns. They often think that high-priced stocks are overvalued. In terms of valuation, a 50 rupees stock may not be cheaper than that of a 1000 rupees stock. There is no co-relation between the valuation and market price of a stock. To understand whether a company is small or large, you must look at market capital of the company and not at stock price. To judge valuation you must have to look at Price to earning ratio, Price to book ratio, Price to sales ratio etc.

Lets try to understand this with an example, Rajratan Global Wires share price was Rs. 54.77 on 30 Nov 2017 (stock split and bonus issue adjusted price, actual price was 639). Today the stock price is at Rs. 1225 giving absolute returns of 2137% i.e. more than 22 times within 5 years against double digit return of Sensex in the same period. 

We suggested Buy on Rajratan Global Wires at price of Rs. 639 under Hidden Gems service on 30 Nov 2017 and if any of our subscribers have not invested in the company thinking he/she can get only 15 shares by investing Rs. 10,000 has made a big mistake. Today those 15 shares have increased to 175 shares on account of bonus shares issued by the company in the ratio of 4:3 in 2019 and later stock split of 1 shares into 5 shares (face value of Rs. 10 to Rs 2 per share) in March 2022. And the current share price of Rs. 1225 is still very high for those who looks at low price stock. We advised partial profit booking in Rajratan Global Wires to our Hidden Gems recently at Rs. 1300, booking returns of 2270% (almost 24X) in period of 5 years.

There are many examples like above by which we can illustrate that there’s nothing called high price. Multibagger returns is not dependent on the current market price of a stock, so don't be afraid of investing in high priced stock. You need to look at fundamentals like future growth prospects of the company, PE ratio, PB ratio, ROE, ROCE, debt on books, cash reserves along with other parameters to judge a stock whether it is undervalued or overvalued. We agree with you that judging valuation is not an easy task. So, take expert’s advise when ever required.

Another misconception among investors is to buy more no. of shares. They often think that its better to buy more no. of shares of a low price scrip (ranging below Rs. 10 or say below Rs. 50) instead of buying less no. of shares of high priced stocks. They often think that low price stocks can generate multibagger return quickly. During last 5 years, we have reviewed existing portfolio of our members under our Wealth-Builder (an offline portfolio management service) subscription, we have noticed that many of their portfolio is filled with such low-priced stocks and most of those are in great loss because of poor fundamentals. You may think that a two rupees stock can easily generate multibagger returns even if it touch to Rs. 5 or 6. At the same time don’t forget that the same can even come down to Rs. 0 levels which can evaporate all your investment giving you 100% loss! In terms of valuation a two thousand rupees stock may not be expensive than that of a two rupees stock.

Lets try to understand this also with a simple example, Lanco Infratech was a well-known company from Infrastructure sector. At the beginning of 2010 the stock was around Rs 55. After 10 years, it was hovering at just Rs 1.30 and today its not operational any more. Those who purchased the stock during 2010 are in 100% loss! Rs. 1 lakh invested in Lanco Infratech in Jan 2010 was valued at merely Rs. 2,000 in 2020, a complete wealth-destroyer! Isn't it? Those who bought this stock at levels of Rs. 30 and later again at Rs. 10 or Rs. 5 to average out thinking that stock has came down from all time highs of Rs. 85 are still waiting to get their buying price back. There are many such stocks like Suzlon Energy, GMR Infra, GVK Power and Infrastructure etc which have continuously destroyed wealth of investors over a period of last 5 to 10 years.

We do not state that all low price stocks are wealth-destroyers, it all depends on the fundamentals of the company. So, do ensure that you check out the fundamentals and valuations while investing in stocks instead of looking at stock price. Please get out of the misconception that low priced stocks will fly high faster giving you extra-ordinary returns. Always remember that stock price is just a barometer, actual valuations of a company can be determined by its fundamentals.
