Any level is a good entry level in Jayaswals Neco. The EPS for FY08 is likely to be in 8-10 range and EPS for FY09 likely to be significantly more. Somebody has asked what is the story in this counter, the story is that the company has turned around and is now going to make very good profits. This is the next Jai Corp or next KEC International in the making. Nagpur-based Jayaswals Neco has set up a commercial power plant at Moitra village in Hazaribagh district of Jharkhand. The 270-mw coal-fired plant will have two units of 135 mw each. The company has coal mines with estimated reserves of 30 million tonnes in Moitra village itself.Jayaswals Neco has planned to sign the power purchase agreement with PTC India. The company already has a 40-mw captive power plant at Siltara in Raigarh district of Chhattisgarh where an integrated steel plant has come up.Incorporated in 1972, Jayaswals Neco essentially produces iron castings and pipes that find applications in railways and construction sectors. In 1992-93, the company diversified into the solvent extraction business. The integrated steel plant in Chhattisgarh signifies an important backward integration move. This move will bring down their costs very significantly and propel their earnings to a new level. Cheers!
