  5. I too surprised on the movement of BS transcomm. I think it is because of the reasons beyond the fundamentals or the business of the company.If you are ready to wait and willing to take risk better to wait - accepting risk is there

  6. Camlin Fine Chem is an excellent company and company increaed the Div from 10 to 20%.

    Based on what company gave FY12 guidance, it seems cheap and can give good benefit in a years time.

  7. Valu sir,
    Any thoughts on Modison Metals? The company seems very good fundamentaly and has potential to rise in future.
    They make switch gear contacts for MNCs and is a reputed name in the industry.

    Pls share any info you may have.


  8. Sir any response would be widely welcome.

  9. I have been watching this company and after acquisition of Italian company the Rawmaterial will be available cheaper and hence the margins will improve.

    Very good company to buy for atleast 1 year

  10. Dear Rishab

    Not tracking Modison Metal

  11. It was good to read about an undervalued stock. Truly the tip yielded good return, almost 80% in three months.

    Can valuepick throw some light on Geodesic Limited. I am invested in it @Rs 130. Seems to me a good company, profit rising continuously year after year but price showing opposite movement (dipping south). Please advice. Thank you in advance.

  12. Boss what happened had told to accumulate ths at 56... Cprice now to 18 !!!!!

    1. When I recommended it @ Rs.56 its FV was 10 and now it divided into 2 which means 1 share is equal to 5 shares now.
