  1. Hi Amiit

    Thanks for an interesting compilation.

    BTW, have you looked at IMPAL ( India motor parts & accessories). Promoted by Sundaram Finance & its owners. 12 month TTM pe of 10. Eventhough revenue growth is muted between 15 to 20%, NP growth is superior. Good roce & ROE, nil debt. Div yield around 3%. The intersting part is that it has invested close to 25 crores in Royal sundaram insurance and they are in the process of selling it to reliance. Of coures, in india it may take decade also. The things is, if you exclude the investments, the roe is very high. And, I am sure considering the auto boom india, the coming 20 years will be good time to be in distributing auto parts. One more interesting this is this company is paying dividends nonstop for the last 57 years …that includes the years we were at war with our eternal friends china and pakistan.
    This one is not the typical yourkindof multibagger. But, when the revenues get close to 100 crores, our institutional friends will wake up and a good roce/roe, nil-debt, strong balce sheet company will get re-rated.

  3. Hi Amit,

    If time permits, please have a look at these two articles and let me know what your thoughts are.
    I think this is IOC because of a lot a factors
    This one’s a bit confusing. However I feel it is a solar or LPG company and I’m leaning towards PAE/Websol or Confidence Petro/Petronet LNG.

  5. Hi Sreeselva,

    Sorry, I am not following this space. I feel Indraprastha Gas to be a good player in this industry.
