  1. great pick i own it the big problem is that its very illiquid
    vlaueji wht is your opinion on suraj diamonds

  2. oops not so illiquid now it was when i bought it though

  3. dear value
    I UNDERSTAND ,no great investors have timed market but kindly express ur views on overall MARKET condition. because if we go for correction at this time smallcaps tend to correct drastically AND then long waiting Coming months could be different from last 5 months

  4. hi valuepick, the proposal to increase equity by alloting shares to promoters will cause big equity dilution also. Do you think the earnings in future will jump big to serve the higher equity?

  5. Dear Friend

    It is very difficult to time the market,if anyone feels the current level of a scrip reflecting a higher price , compared with its anticipated future growth,better to sell and wait for correction.

  6. Dear Sandep

    I am expecting reasonable growth in sales and even better performance in margin to justify the expanded equity going forward.

  7. The shareholding pattern doesn't look too good...promoters stake has been steadily coming down and their current holding is just 19%.

  8. InvestWizard

    Don't comment after reading the name of company only ,Read the text and then comment.

  9. hi valuepick, will the increase in promoter stake require an open offer also like Religare?

  10. Today i read one article in that CRISIL has given negative rating to VIMAL. How for will it affects its business and share price in medium to long term?

  11. Hi Live fms

    Read the report in full.In the same reportCRISIL said that the situation will improve after the proposed fund infusion by promoters .Moreover it will not affect the company in no way ,since they have no plan to raise fund through debt in near future.

  12. why it is falling now?? why proce is falling when are promoters are buying?

  13. Hi, Please tell me whether Poona Dal & Oil is a better investment compared to Vimal Oil & Foods for long term ?
