The stock is giving a very high dividend yield consistently, and at current market price of just 44.15, this stock is available at a steal. The PE ratio is just around 4. The Book Value as of March, 09 is a whopping 121.38 (source: religare technova) The stock has seen highs of around 185 in the December, 2007 Bull run and used to trade consistently around that level in the years 2006 & 2007. At current price this stock is trading at a deep discount to its peers like Tata Chemicals, United Phosphorus etc. and merits an investment buy.

Hi, the things mentioned by you on GHCL looks quite promising. But what worries me is the very high debt and low (17%) promoters' holding.
With Regards,

Ambrish said...

Just need a suggestion: I got stuck in Gremach infra since its days of 80. My avg currently is 65/-. Should i avg it still at 30/- ? Kindly update. i can hold for 1 to 2 yrs. Regards Ambrish

Hi Incognito, you need to research a stock properly before posting ignorant comments. The stock of FCS was split from FV of 10 to 1, that's why you see the drastic price change. Actually that stock has gone up 4 times after I have recommended it. In effect, keeping in mind the split, I had recommended that stock around 4.3 and it went up to 17 within a very short span of time. And now there has been a bonus issue announcement too.

Hi Sangjukta,
Had a look at your stock and I think it is a Hold at the current price and can give decent returns in the long run. You can hold the stock keeping a stop loss of around 77.

Hi Ambrish,

Gremach management is the same as Austral Coke which is under a cloud. I don't think averaging the stock is a good idea, unless something fundamentally changes very drastically in this stock, I would just wait for the price to go near 40 where one can get out booking a loss and shift to some better stock. It is better to shift to some winning horse than keep on putting more money in a lame horse.

Dear Sir,
I am putting the query here as its related again on SELMCL that I asked earlier here only.
Shall I avg now or can wait. I was about to sell that as u asked to put SL @77/-. I have 300 SELMCL @ 86/-

Superstar said...

Hi Sanjukta,

Now you see the benefit of following technicals along with fundamentals? Had you listened to my advice and sold SELMCL at the Stop Loss level given by me (77), you could have made a cool profit of 15% in one week. :) Of course, you can average that I've begun coverage of SEL Manufacturing at 66.70 on Thursday with a STRONG BUY rating.


sangjukta said...

Thank you sir. I will do it
