WORTH READING

COURTESY - ECONOMIC TIMES
-----------------------------------------

It is that time of the year when investors start receiving the most
critical communication tool from the company, namely the
annual report. An annual report provides a summary of how
a company has performed in the year that went by, and how
it is likely to perform in the forthcoming year.

For companies, it is mandatory to send a hard copy of the

annual report to each and every shareholder. While a lot of
shareholders merely keep annual reports aside or throw them
away with old newspapers, there are important cues which
savvy investors pick.

In fact, for the general public, the annual report is the only

financial document that they get to see. Hence, for existing
shareholder, it could be the best source of information to
determine the financial health of a company and to learn about
any problems or opportunities in the business environment.

Here are some important things that you could look for

in a balance sheet.
Balance sheets can be designed in any shape and size. Also, there is
no mandatory rule which specifies the quality of paper to be used
in an annual report.

Hence, while some companies come up with a plain vanilla annual

report with simple fonts, simple colours and pay little attention to
page layouts and displays, there are companies which use
high-quality paper, take special efforts to design it and ensure
that the annual report is really presentable to their shareholders.

“How the annual report looks and feels conveys its image and

speaks volumes about the ability of a company to market itself
in the corporate world. Quality of paper used in the annual report,
many a time, is proportionate or signifies how well the company
is doing,” said Alok Churiwala, managing director, Churiwala Securities.

Sending the annual report by courier or speed post, as compared to

ordinary post, could denote how important an investor is for the company.

Management discussion and analysis
------------------------------------------
This section is of prime importance for research analysts as well
as fund managers. It gives you an overview of the previous year
of operations and how the company performed.

Besides this, most importantly, the management shares its

vision for the coming year, updates on projects which are
in the pipeline and thoughts on future projects. However, investors
should keep in mind that unlike the numbers, this section is unaudited.

“Management discussion and analysis is very important to me in

case of multinational companies, where there is less communication
by way of conference calls or analyst meets during the year,” said
Anand Shah, head (equities), Canara Robeco Mutual Fund.
This section gives you important clues as to the direction in which
a company is thinking, how they think the year ahead is going to be
for the industry and how the company will fare.

Financial statements and strength of balance sheet
-----------------------------------------------------
Shareholders like to look at the income statement as it denotes
how the company is performing in its business, how much profit
the company is making and what is it earning from its core
operations. Portfolio managers and analysts are concerned
about the strength of the balance sheet.

“I look at things like inter-group loans, investments, cash and debt

position in the balance sheet prior to making an investment decision,”
said Vaibhav Sanghvi, director (funds management), Ambit Capital.

There are things like auditors qualification, or one-off expenditure

which raise a red flag and need to be considered further by analysts.
Then, there are things like cash flow statement which is sacrosanct
for most analysts.

No need to throw stones




After my posting on ORCHID CHEMICALS ,I have received few mails stating that Orchid is a company like Satyam Computer and its promoter Mr Raghavendra Rao is similar to Mr Raju of Satyam.I have a different opinion on it and it is a continuation of my earlier post on Orchid Chemicals.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think Mr. Raghavendra Rao does not committed any fraud.
When we recollect the past, Mr Rao was a first generation
entrepreneur with lot of idea but without deep pockets.
Since he doesn’t have enough money ,he forced to dilute
equity in favor of others (mainly for various FII’s )  and also
raised fund through FCCB’s. Using these funds company
created top class facilities for manufacturing. After these fund
raising exercise Mr.Rao’s stake in percentage terms come
down drastically in the company.
In order to increase his share holding in
the company Mr Rao wants to purchase shares from open
market .For this purpose he pledged his existing shares with
India bulls and Religare and bought money from them  for
market purchase of shares of his own company  .
Unfortunately at this time the subprime crisis worsened and
one of the share holder BSMA forced to offload their entire
stake in the open market. Such a huge sell off led to a sharp
drop in its share price which led to margin calls by India Bulls
and Religare , Mr Rao could not meet his obligation and even
forced to sell already bought shares .All these unfortunate events
led to a sharp fall in share price of Orchid from Rs.240/- level to
just Rs.56/- in 2009.On the other hand ,in the past two years
due to unfavorable volatility in exchange value of rupee company
also suffered loss in foreign exchange and FCCB   front .To save his
company,Rao had no other option than selling part of  his company
itself for escaping from debt trap.That’s why he sold the  injectable
business to ‘HOSPIRA’ last
year .But he didn’t took the amount personally and the entire amount
came to the company itself .Company realized an amount close
to 1900 Cr  and used Rs.1400 Cr out of it for repayment of loan
.Balance amount is with the company for further acquisitions and
repayment of  FCCB . It take the first move in this direction by
acquiring US-based generic marketing company Karalex Pharma
in this month. Orchid also declared a dividend of 100% for this FY.
Sell off of  the  injectables business is expected to result a revenue
loss of  $ 90 mn for Orchid ,but I strongly believes that Orchid will
compensate it through it new products and by increasing the volume
of existing products in two year time. Moreover  Mr Rao already
indicated that he is going to increase the promoter stake through
creeping acquisition and which is already visible in latest share
holding pattern. This is the real story , and I believes that it is
entirely different from ‘Satyam Saga’ . So there is no reason for
comparing both these companies and throwing stones to a
promoter like Mr.Raghavendra Rao. Some unfortunate things
happened in the past and Mr Rao may have learned valuable
lessons from past happenings and in my opinion he is capable of 
steering the company to new heights.
When there was a crash in share prices ,both Ranbaxy and
Serum Institute of India (a Poonawala Group Company) bought
huge quantity shares of Orchid  from the open market  itself is a
testimony for the quality of the company and its products.
So I believes that if there is any problems like the previous one
occurred due to higher  percentage of pledged shares  there will
be many takers for this 1300 Cr company .In nutshell Orchid is a
‘Class ‘company  for investment  if you have sufficient patience
with a three year target of  Rs.400/-.

Rs.1400 Cr using part of this realisation .
Using part of the balance fund ,Orchid recently

efforts in US over next few years.company's bad times
are almost over and it is expected to post better
perfomance in the years to come.Orchid is expected
to post a turnover of Rs.1270 Cr and a net
profit of Rs.85 + Crore in current financial year .
Company recently declared a dividend
of Rs.10/- each (100%) too.  Moreover after the reduction in debt
Orchid is a perfect takeover target due to its large size ,
quality of operations ,well established R&D and comparatively
low promoter stake At current market price of Rs.161 /- ,
Orchid is a decent BUY.

NOT ON CONCURRENT INDIA INFRASTRUCTURE BUT ON SMALL AND MIDCAPS.


Nowadays my mail box flooded with mails requesting to express
opinion on Concurrent India Infrastructure Ltd after recent
developments in the company. I really wonder ,how a small
company which changed its name and line of business recently
getting this much attention from investment fraternity.
On the other side I am really afraid because of my past experience
about over publicised companies in the past .
Anyway I would like to express my view on mid-small caps
generally and not on any company specifically.

1)      I strongly believes that , It is the commitment of any
good  management to come out with an explanation about facts
to its share holders,if there is any strong allegations about any company.

2)      If any company spending much time and energy  for publicity
and announcement ,such companies should be treated with caution.
If any company is working really well and growing steadily
investors will eventually find it out  and it will get deserved
valuation in long term – promoters should concentrate in
business rather than publicity .

3)If any company announcing business deals only  with unknown
counter
parties and parties outside the country ,such companies should be 
treated care fully. In the case of deals with companies outside the home
country , it is not very easy to verify the facts ,which increase the chance
of  foul play. Especially, if the company is very small and no previous
credentials of large project execution ,it is not very easy to get large
contracts anywhere.

4)      If any company announcing only the beginning of various
projects and silent on its completion , it is difficult to swallow such
claims as such

5)      If a company or promoter group  lost its glory due to  serious
allegations and no effective efforts from promoters to clarify their side ,
such company’s will underperform even if they declare excellent results later.
This is because  investors will sceptical  about the results ,
whether it is genuine or fabricated.

PS. :Study the history of companies like Teledata ,Compact disc ..etc.

6)    In a bull market  Small and midcaps are moving not only because
 of fundamentals , anything possible if the parties behind any company
is smart enough and their pockets are deep ,but such up move  may
not last longer.

7) IT IS STOCK MARKET - EVEN SMART GUYS  MAY BE CHEATED BY SMARTER ONES AND BOTH BY SMARTEST ONES.
 
This is my general view on small and mid cap investing and not specific to any company.

An Article by Yamal Vyas of Indiainvestment.com -Worth Reading



 This Article is taken from the latest issue of 'Dalal Street' magazine . I think an average Indian retail investor should read this before investing in mid-small cap stocks .


Times Of Turbulence
----------------------------------
The volatility continues. After a
period of relative calm in April,
the month of May was quite
eventful. And the high volatility con-
tinues with full force in June. This can
be seen from the daily price movements
which have been very high in May and
June. The measure that we took is
simple. If the difference between high
and low levels of Nifty on a trading
day was more than 100 points, the day
was considered to have high volatility.
In April, such days were only four. In
May, the number of volatile days rose
almost threefold to 11, and in the first
ten days of June, there have been four
volatile days already.
As a result of this, the small day
traders have been at the receiving end.
Such volatility would generally provide
a good chance for day traders in theory,
but in practice, the reverse is true. The
big players are always one step ahead of
the smaller players and this fact shows
up more clearly in volatile times. Even
for short-term traders, the times have
been trying. The prices of a few ran-
domly selected stocks such as Gujarat
Ambuja, Ashok Leyland and Gujarat
State Petronet reveal that the prices on
May 3 and Jun 10 do not seem to have
changed. There may be a few other
stocks which would have moved up,
but overall the volatility has not been
good for the retail investors.
The lesson to be learnt from this
is that for the retail investors, the best
time is when there is one way move-
ment in the market. For example,
between October 2007 and January
2008, the market was moving only
one way i.e. up and the retail inves-
tors across the board must be having a
good memory of that period. A simi-
lar situation prevailed between March
2009 and July 2009, but the number
of beneficiaries of this straight rise in
stock prices was much lower because
that period was the turnaround of the
market after a 14month bear phase.
So what does the retail investor do
in the intervening period? Well, he has
only one better option than wait for 2-
3 years before the last phase of any bull
market. He or she should invest for tak-
ing delivery. Period. That could be very
difficult for the brigade who has grown
up only on a daily diet of futures and
options. But let me assure you that it is
the way to go for the retail investors in
the future. There are many advantages
of buy and hold. The longer you hold,
the better are your chances of decreas-
ing any loss. Conversely, the possibility
of coming out with profit goes up.
Further, the most important thing is
that in the long run, the fundamental
always catch up. If you buy and hold a
particular company's stock and if the
company performs well consistently,
there is no way the stock will not rise.
One only needs patience to benefit
from this fact. Many recent entrants
to the market have never got around
being comfortable with the policy of
buy and hold. One of the reasons is
the spread of the electronic media and
internet. These two are so dominant
in our thought process that if we are
a close follower of either of these, the
news and data overkill will lead you to
buy and sell rather than buy and hold.
There are reasons why everyone
from your broker to your TV chan-
nel will recommend a hundred stocks
within a short time. The brokers stand
to earn their brokerage and the chan-
nels their viewership. How many peo-
ple will watch a TV channel which rec-
ommends a few stocks day in and day
out? And any investment grade stock
will remain good every day. The only
thing is, you will not like it if the TV
channel recommends the same stock
every day for a month. You would like
to have some variety.

IGARASHI MOTORS - TURN AROUND PERFOMANCE.


 
 
Igarashi Motors is originally promoted jointly by Crompton
Greaves and Igarashi Electric work of Japan as CG Igarashi
Motors .Later the foreign company bought the entire stake
from CG and changed name to the present one(Igarashi Motors).
Company manufactures DC micro motors that find application in
industries like  automobile, power tools, toys , domestic
appliances and office equipments. Most of its income
coming from automobile sector.Company’s plant is located in
Chennai.In automobile sector its products are used for engine
management, exhaust and braking systems.Due to huge foreign
exchange loss and bad shape of automobile industry ,company
posted dismal performance in last year. After that ,now the
company take various steps like loan restructuring ,selling
of some low margin business , re negotiation of product price
with customers ..etc. As a result of all these efforts
company back to profitability in
last qtr of the previous FY with a sale of 45 Cr and a NP of
4 Cr in that qtr.Since the company streamline its products and
customers to avoid loss making business ,its turnover was low
in last qtr. Company’s efforts seems to be paying off especially
at a time of global recovery in auto sector. Historically company
enjoying very high P/E since its listing.Considering
all these points it is a scrip to watch.
Currently it is trading around Rs.60/-

JAGATJIT INDUSTRIES

I have earlier recommended this scrip @ Rs.65/- ,which is now quoting around Rs.63/-.After the previous recommendation company declared very good result for the fourth qtr.Company has moved from red to black in the last FY and expected to perform well in future.

Old report is re- producing below :
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The brand ‘Aristocrat’ is familiar even  for the non 
drinkers but the company which makes this brand is 
not much popular among investors. Jagatjit Industries 
is the 600 crore company which makes Aristocrat brand 
liquor.For the past many years company's performance 
badly affected mainly because of some disputes 
between the members of promoter family itself. 
In a landmark judgment company law board instructed 
the main promoter to buy back 5794112 shares 
from the counter party, 
which already completed .The bought back shares were
extinguished and its share capital reduced by that 
extent.This process will give the much needed 
freedom to the management to take crucial decisions
for the growth of the company ,which lacks for the
past many years. Immediately after this important
development company shown excellent performance 
in financial front too.In December qtr Jagatjit
posted a turnover of Rs.192 crore and a profit 
of Rs.3.6 crore v/s a sale of 162 crore and a loss
of 11 crore(excluding other income)in the same 
period last year.This 60 year old company with an 
established brand is worth watching at CMP of
Rs.65/-,and may be a dark horse in the years to come.
