Potential GOLDMINE : K Sera Sera Productions UPDATE

K Sera Sera Productions has just released its results, and they are very good. The company has posted an EPS of 2.03 for Sept qtr. Half Year EPS already at 3.24. With annualized EPS of 6.5, this share is trading at a ridiculously cheap PE ratio of just 2. No other media company is available at such a cheap PE ratio. Average PE ratios of most media companies range from 15-30. Even if we give a conservative PE ratio of 10 to it, then the stock price should be at 65 (6.5x10=65).

Apart from the stupendous results, the company has also announced the following along with its results:

1.K Sera Sera Miniplex Pvt Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary of K Sera Sera) has successfully tied its presence for miniplex theatres in 60 districts with 128 screens across India.

Time to re-visit Alok Industries. Last year I had recommended the stock at the price of 13.60 with an initial target of 25, which was immediately met. Currently the stock is quoting very cheap at around 21.60 levels. Book Value itself is 34.48 (March,2010) Source :

Not only is this stock trading at very low PE levels, technically also it looks ripe for a breakout after a long consolidation. The management is looking to reduce its debt levels and has aggressive growth plans. Alok Industries is a fully integrated textile company and is amongst India’s largest textile manufacturers. It has state of the art manufacturing facilities and boasts of the highest quality standards.

This stock is a potential multi-bagger for seasoned investors.

Market at Inflection point

Hi friends,

The Markets are currently poised at an Inflection point at present levels of 5475-5500 (Nifty). An immediate Upside or downside of around 700 points may be in the offing. The view on Indian stock markets is broadly bullish so the chances are high that the breakout will be on an upside. Mid-Small caps with good fundamentals which have relatively underperformed the market in the last six months or so may come in the limelight. Very fast gains can be made in the next rally which can happen soon. My view on SHRI LAKSHMI COTSYN is ACCUMULATE. It is a definite MULTIBAGGER STOCK in the long term.

The company currently is in talks with Indian paramilitary forces and also some high-value customers in India, Europe and the Middle-East who want their vehicles to be armored with Level-B7 protection with bullet, mine and bomb-proof accessories. The armoring could cost anywhere between Rs 50 lakh to over Rs 1 crore, depending upon the accessories embedded in the vehicle.

Dr. M. P Agarwal, CMD, Shri Lakshmi Cotsyn Limited said in a recorded interview: “While presenting the Union Budget Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee allocated $28 billion for defense which is the highest ever allocation for the defense sector.

The Promoters have increased their shareholding in the company from 43.31% in March, 2009 to 47.91% in March, 2010. To conclude, this stock is an excellent Investment Opportunity.

Long term investors with some risk appetite can hope to make substantial gains in this stock.
