Hi B R Reddy…thanks for your response…this specific blog post listed ten scrips between 20 and 30 and what you think they would be in 2012 if sensex is between 20k and 30k….A few years ago I had cautioned on Birla Power Solutions….I had a quick relook at it at par Rs 1 as this is the FV too …..Volumes are currently 15 lakh shares though average six month daily volumes are 75000 shares…. 52 week high/low is Rs 2/Rs 1…but margins and profits are very low…profits are in a few crs though sales crossed Rs 230 crs last year and will have crossed Rs 250 crs for FY 2011…amusingly it declared a 1:5 Bonus last year as well as a dividend of 7.5%…it carries debt of over Rs 100 crs while funds tied up in Debtors and Inventories last year aggregated over Rs 175 crs..Sales were Rs 238 crs….currently manufacturing portable gensets and engines for gensets it now plans to enter the field of power generation through two subs Birla Energy Infra Ltd and Birla Urja Ltd…it needs funds…has constantly….has raised Authorised Capital to Rs 425 crs….With Profitability in single digit Rs crs and Equity at Rs 215 crs,don’t expect any dividend for FY 11 that just passed….if they do foolishly declare one,they will have to dive into GDR proceeds of earlier years to distribute,if any are yet available….while I feel the downside is 75 paise,any uptick from here will be more on momentum,hype,sentiment and anticipation and blind faith in a Birla Company rather than on fundamentals…Yash Birla Group companies do not command much respect or premium on the bourses or in business…another of his group companies is Birla Shloka ….it is just Rs 15…it has a 52 week high of Rs 94 and the FPO in Jan 2010 was at Rs 50 for a FV Rs 10 share….if you wish to make monies in Birla Power, don’t depend on fundamentals to support upmoves from Rs 1….more likely on collective hype and hope…Cheers !

whats your view on tulsyan NEC

Amit……Tulsyan NEC suffered from a very high Debt…over Rs 220 crs last year from a Total Capital Employed of Rs @Rs 285 crs…recent 2:1 Rights Issue at Rs 49.50 will triple Equity to Rs 15 crs and move Networth to Rs 120 crs…this will reduce Debt Equity towards 2:1…..Consolidated Turnover is Rs 876 crs for FY 11 but bottomline is a mere Rs 9 crs because of the high Interest outflow of over Rs 32 crs…they also faced huge Power cuts…40% in FY 10…affected capacity utilisation…they also faced some price hurdle to source sponge iron….they have since bought out a 35000 MT Sponge Iron Manufacturer Chitrakoot and are setting up a 35KV Thermal Power Station…Steel sales account for near Rs 700 crs of the turnover…rest is poly packaging synthetic division sales…it is a dividend paying company…65% + equity is held by the Promoters….I see little downside from here….Trading Volumes are low….would keep it as a ScripWatch rather than ScripSelect right now…Interestingly Market Cap is only @ Rs 70 crs on enhanced capital with share price in the mid Rs 40s levels…it remains a small company in this sense…sold 1.5 lakh ton of Steel and @ 12000 t on Packaging…has over 1500 employees …..will get re-rated only when Debt levels drop significantly to Rs 100-Rs 150 crs range and therefore Debt/Equity to 1:1….Keep a watch …..Cheers read more

Thinksoft Global crashes to Rs 221 (more fall indicated) from Rs 544 in just 10 trading days…..SEBI and BSE must probe this Company to maintain sanctity of our Markets

I had warned Investors of Thinksoft Global IPO in September 2009

Don’t ThinkHard about ThinkSoft Global Services’s IPO at Rs 120-130…Ignore it

However on Listing it kept defying gravity and on February 11,2010 it zoomed to a record high of Rs 544 with record Volumes

But since then in just Ten Trading days and Eight continous lower circuits,beginning with two 20% drops,then as lower filters were applied,a 10% drop,followed by now Five 5% lower circuit filters,Thinksoft Global has crashed today to a lower circuit of Rs 221.30

The Share Price and the Volumes were set up past one month…Have a look ….Something Stinks really Big Time Foul here

…methinks SEBI and BSE must quickly and conclusively bring the perpetrators to task,if they have to maintain the sanctity of our  Stock Exchanges and protect the sucker of the small Investor….

Classic case of Greed and Fear….we’ve seen such situations play up before too…like in the Austral Coke Company…dropped from near Rs 200 levels to under Rs 10 now

….The authorities must investigate any Promoter/Major Shareholder/Broker/Operator nexus in such cases…Such movements rarely occur without a criminal nexus…..Poor Retail and some HNWI suckers get trapped by this manipulation  

 Investor Education and Protection is one of the key purposes why I began this blog…to express my  concerns on several companies…In the recent past,Cranes Software and Karuturi Global…even Austral Coke ! and Thinksoft Global

However distasteful,unpleasant,bad,loss making Equity experiences should not permanently deter you from the Beauty of Equity…..A basket of Apples will have a few Bad ones !….Some are easy to Spot,some look great on the outside ,but are infested with Worms on the Inside……Learn to spot these worms and avoid such seemingly great Apples ! 

Be warned….There are many out there…. always on the Prowl to seduce you to lose Monies…because they make Monies,only when you lose !…and they have perfected the art of Seduction !….and think about this !…what chance do you stand against the 6000+ seductions listed on BSE !…and you will be double careful !

I reiterate my Quote “India and Insider Trading are Inseperable !”…which I discuss and debate in my sessions at various forums

Cheers !
