There is number of examples in Indian
stock market for promoters inability/laziness
or their negative attitude towards other share
holders wasting chances of immense wealth
creation. Gandhimathi Appliances is such a story.
Gandhimathi is making household appliances
like LPG Stove, Pressure cooker, Mixer
Grinder ..etc in the brand name 'BUTTERFLY'.
This is the No.1 brand in case of LPG Stove in
South India and also have a good
market share in other products. But the
financial side of this company is not a
robust one. We can’t blame anyone who
suspect that the promoters are siphoning 
of  funds generated in this company and
divert the same to companies privately
owned by the same/related parties. Presence
of other companies of promoters in the same
line of business is a real misfortune  to the
minority share holders of Gandhimathi
Appliances.Any way , earlier this company
went for BIFR and later as per a scheme the
promoters bring more funds to the company
to revive it. Now ,company is going
to merge another group company
Gangadharam Appliances with itself
and  final decision regarding merger
ratio ..etc are expecting soon. It is expected
that after the merger is completed company
will sell its surplus land and pay back dues
to strengthen its balance sheet. Some of the
recent indications from the management
giving some hopes about the change in the
attitude of management. I suspect ,
the huge wealth created by peers like TTK
Prestige and Hawkins
Cookers in recent past may also be a  reason
for  a second thought for the management of
Gandhimathi. If the management is really
willing to change its attitude and ready to
consolidate its operations in the listed company
and show good corporate governance 
the scope is very vast and this may be a
multi bagger even from current level. Since
its future is depends on many ‘IF’s  only high
risk takers can consider this .Now it is
trading around Rs.73/-

Below is a part  of an interview published in Economic Times last week with Shankar Sharma  and his wife Devina Mehra  of  First Global Stock Broking :
Q , Shankar, at 18000, are you a bull, are you a bear or I should make the standard assumption that you do not like the markets?

A ,Shankar Sharma: It should not be a standard assumption, but I do not like the markets and again just to answer your previous question all over again, it is our belief and very strong belief that it is almost impossible for anybody as an aggregate class to make money in stock markets. Stock markets are meant to enrich a handful of people at the expense of the vast masses. That is the long-term history of stock markets and I am willing to argue with anybody with any amount of data. I always have that perspective when we are going out there and talking about markets, the guy listening to this point of view should be very clear and it is a damn tough game to make money in markets, even with professionals like us.

Yes , If anybody in Indian Stock Market have right to say this ,that is only these two guys.Because they have played a vital role in previous stock market crashes  and took the money of retailers and later caught and punished by authorities like SEBI and SAT. But the irony is that popular media like CNBC and Economic Times are giving undue coverage to these type of  Culprits and presenting such peoples are the great personalities of Indian Stock Market.

These are the type of people guiding us through media .So ,Don't swallow the comments of Celebrities and Media , Think yourself before investing your hard earned money

Even if the potential  of Micro Irrigation is very vast in a
country like India, listed Companies other than
Jain Irrigation in this sector is ignored by investors  mainly
because of their inability to scale up the business.
EPC INDUSTRIE is the second largest pure listed player
in this space. This Nasik based company having an installed
capacity of 8100 Mt per annum Micro Irrigation Systems.
Company was in pathetic situation and a BIFR case  for
past many years mainly because of severe working capital.
crunch . Later in 2007, UK based PE player  Schroder
Credit Renaissance Fund  interested in EPC and invested
about Rs.18 crore to revive the company .
 The same fund again invested
in EPC and raised its stake upto the current level of  52.3 %.
In these preferential allotments ,  Schroder Credit took stake
at a price higher than the then prevailing market price of EPC ,
which indicates their confidence in this company. Meanwhile
promoters also hiked their stake through a preferential allotment.
Even there is fund infusion , turnover of the company was not
improving earlier. But now there is some  earlier signs of
improvement in this company. By effective use of working
capital , company is now started to improve capacity utilization
and margins . For the three months ended June qtr, Company
posted a turnover of Rs.23 Crore and a net profit of Rs.81 Lac
which is  higher than 50% and 300% respectively over  same
period last year. EPC is an approved supplier to the Micro
irrigation projects initiated by Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh 
State governments  which ensures a ready market for its
products. Along with this ,due to high food inflation many state
governments and Central government  taking active steps to
increase the penetration of MIS in our country .As part of this,
recently central government upgraded its micro irrigation  scheme
to a national mission with an outlay of Rs 8032.90 crore ,which
is very positive for companies like EPC. When we look through
another angle , seeing the potential here ,many world leaders are
interested to enter into the Indian MIS market .Since ,controlling
stake held by a P/E player with world wide operation ,EPC
Industries is a potential take over target for these biggies going
forward. So, those who are willing to take risk and ready to
wait, this may turn as a multibagger .CMP is Rs.61 /-

In any bull markets ,promoters of fraud companies are inventing new methods to lure retail investors into their stocks.This is to make their exit easy by creating liquidity on the cost of poor retailers . Even the mandatory filing requirements  to stock exchanges are used  for this purpose ,which is really alarming . In this bull market ,BSE has revoked the suspension of many small companies.Majority of such companies were suspended for many years and revocation of trading is really helping retail investors (who caught in previous bull markets)to exit from such dead companies.In reality , intention of promoters in most of  such cases are not helping others but to exit themselves. Let us take case of a company which is re-listed today -VIRGO GLOBAL MEDIA formerly known as ONLINE MEDIA LTD. In the filing of basic details to BSE ,company has provided the name of two websites  as its own (1) and (2)  . When we digging into it ,it is clear that both these address have no relation with the company and these are the web addresses of two foreign companies.It is clear that company is purposefully trying to mislead the investors by filing wrong data to BSE. In a circular by BSE on 04/08/2010 company informed that they have no website and it is only under construction.It is sad to see that even stock exchanges with or without knowledge, helping fraud companies in their efforts to cheat retail investors ,by including wrong details in their official website without proper verification .TO SAVE REATILERS FROM THESE TYPE OF FRAUDS , STOCK EXCHANGES SHOULD  COLLECT HUGE  PENALTY FROM THESE TYPES OF FRAUD  COMPANIES.

I have recommended a BUY on POLY MEDICURE @ Rs.130/- on 22 May ,2010 .Company declared decent numbers in June qtr with almost 100% rise in net profit.At Current Market Price of Rs.209/- ,one can HOLD it for long term gains.


Sunday, August 1, 2010


I have recommended this company twice @ Rs.272/- and Rs.287/-.Currently it is quoting around Rs.300/-

Still I feels it is worth buy for long term investors ,hence earlier two write ups are re-produced below once again.
KAVERI SEED COMPANY – is one of the very few pure
listed  Indian  companies from hybrid seed sector.
Others from this sector are JK Agrigenetics ,Rallis,and
Advanta . Apart from these  other listed firms are
affiliates of foreign players like,Monsanto, Bayer
..etc. Kaveri Seed is a well managed Secunderabad
based firm promoted by Mr.GV Bhaskar Rao in 1976.
Company has grown a lot after that and now it is one
of the largest hybrid seed producer from South
India .Its product portfolio include seeds of
Corn, Cotton, Sorghum, Pearl Millet ,rice ,sunflower
and a wide variety of vegetables.Company also producing
various types of micro nutrients, plant hormones ,
bio-stimulants for different crops.Kavari also
producing organic plant protector under the brand
name ‘FIRE’. Other than this, company has a lot of
organic products to enhance yield from crops.
Recently Kaveri started operations in its  state
of an art facility for cob drying, seed processing
and cold storage which established in its owned 
farmland of 29 Acres in Medak district of Andhra
Pradesh. It added Red gram, onion, mustard and wheat
to is portfolio recently . This pure Indian player has
a very energetic R & D wing and introducing new
verities which can give good result even in bad
conditions like draught. Now in southern states of India
like Tamilnadu,Andhra and Karnataka ,precision farming is
gaining momentum and it is experienced as a great success.
This method requires hybrid seeds and scientific methods
of farming which is expected to bring big business to Kaveri.
                        In the financial front ,Company
is growing steadily and posted a turnover of Rs. 169 Cr
and a net profit of Rs.29 Cr in last financial year.
EPS for FY 2010 is Rs.21.20/-. Backed by good monsoon
compared with last year ,Kaveri is expected to post even
better result in this year. Its business is seasonal
and 90% income generated in first qtr.Company has an
equity base of Rs.13.7 Cr and out of this 63% is held
by promoters and 26 % by big investors including mutual
funds .Even from a low floating stock, promoters are
again buying from open market. In nutshell, with a clean
and dedicated management and excellent R & D Wing Kaveri
Seed  is a company to reap the benefits which is expected
to emerge in Farming sector ,going forward.This one stop
company for hybrid seed ,organic fertilizer and organic
pesticide  is quoting around Rs.272/-
I have received many queries from readers asking whether Kaveri Seed
Company is still a BUY after a  rise of RS.15/- from earlier
recommended price in just two days. Following are  some points
about the company :
 1)      The industry in which it operates have huge potential
        going forward
2)      There are only few listed players in this sector , and entry
      barrier is very high.
3)      Company having  a good ,aggressive and focussed management .
4)      It is growing steadily over past many years
5)       Its R & D is very strong  with 250 acres of land dedicated to
       R&D and  with State-of-the-art Bio-technology labs.
6)      Excluding promoter stake and shares held by large investors ,
      floating stock is just 10% of total equity
7)      Promoters bought shares in recent past from open market even
      at a price of Rs.290/-
8)  Kaveri is the cheapest stock available from this sector with
            a P/E of 13 (Monsanto - 28 ,Advanta 31 ,JK Agri in loss)
      9)  It is virtually a debt free company
     10)  Most importantly , Kaveri  is not a much publicized stock
            and many from investor  fraternity including analysts and
            business channels have  not celebrates it so far

The above are some of the points in favour of Kaveri Seed  ,
Considering the fact that its 90% income is coming from June
qtr alone and the result of this qtr is going to publish within few
days ,even at current price it is a
BUY and hold to grow with it  ,and not a stock to Buy today
and sell tomorrow or day after tomorrow. One negative
point is , Monsoon and  eather condition have great influence
in its business  and which can’t
be   controlled by anyone other than god.
