Equity ~Life Changers or Life Maimers ?

Equity ~Life Changers or Life Maimers ?

This Thought was inspired by a Whatsapp Forward received this morning titled Power of Equity .It listed many Life Changing Wealth Creators that grew many fold from just Rs 10000 invested in each  & carried a concluding Message in Capitals ” INVEST WISELY WITH LOTS OF PATIENCE “

This was the List & I’m assuming the Years & CAGR Maths is correct with Dividends not being considered :

  1. Eicher Motors-1992 => Rs 80 lakhs
  2. Asian Paints-1986 => Rs 90 lakhs
  3. HDFC -1990 => Rs One Crore
  4. Brittania – 1985 => Rs 1.06 crs
  5. MRF – 1985 => Rs 1.10 crs
  6. BOSCH -1985 => Rs 1.20 crs
  7. Amara Raja -1991 => Rs 1.25 crs
  8. Shree Cement -1990 => Rs 2.90 crs
  9. Infosys – 1993 => Rs 3 crs
  10. Dr Reddys -1986 => Rs 10 crs
  11. WIPRO -1981 => Rs 400 crs

Cannot Argue with this Message for I’ve seen three of my Scrips,in even relatively quick time inside five years of investment too becoming over 100 Baggers ~Matrix Labs( early Millenium & now delisted as sold to Mylan),Mercator(early Millenium) & WIPRO ( from 1997 to  early 2001)

State of State Bank of India @ Rs 225 ~ Shareholders Perspective

State of State Bank of India @ Rs 225 ~ Shareholders Perspective

Sensex is arguably reckoned to be the Barometer of our Economy & State Bank of India & Larsen & Toubro have been arguably reckoned to be the best India Proxy Plays in our growing Economy

Received a Forward from an Overseas NRI Friend enquiring if it was true that :

  • Rs 5 lakhs if invested in 2000 in a Fixed Deposit of State Bank of India would have been  currently worth Rs 26 lakhs while
  • Rs 5 lakhs if invested in 2000 in Shares of State Bank of India would be currently worth a whopping Rs 5.74 crs !

😈 Someone’s quite excitedly promoting  Investment in State Bank of India  & advocating Equity over Fixed Deposits over a long period….cannot blame the ‘someone’ for the excitement but deliberate exaggeration to prove the point !?

HOV Services buoyant @ Rs 163 ~ Economic Times quotes me

HOV Services buoyant @ Rs 163 ~ Economic Times quotes me in today’s edition on the clearly apparent undervaluation of the stake sale in Source HOV at just US $ 95 m to promoter entity…should be worth at least US $ 250 m

Hope better sense of fair play will prevail and the stake sale is passed at  a much higher consideration

Even at US $ 95 m, the gross consideration is Rs 580 crs while Market Cap of HOV is just @ Rs 200 crs…The Equity is Rs 12.50 crs (FV Rs 10) =>Rs 464/share deal value proposed…hopefully should be reconsidered to much higher….Company say the Board will decide what to do with the Monies but clearly they should be considering returning a large part to shareholders as special dividend…1000% Dividend  that’s Rs 100/share maybe ?

“Should you retain CUB ex rights for 3 months?”  is what you ask
