Few Microcaps

with 175 comments

hi amit,
you recently said you had 10 microcaps on your radar (few of them barely having any liquidity). Could you share a few of those ideas.

I would encourage you to pursue your own research such as,

1. Emailing the company
2. Calling up company secretary by phone

without anyone’s support and arrive at your conclusions about these microcaps.

Paramount Cosmetics
Leader of “Bindis” Shilpa Brand, declining buggy whip industry but trying to establish Instinct de odourant brand etc, debt is concern.


Go though Annual Reports 2010 – 2012 ( Issue 7 of magazine at Glen Raven website ( and Strata India website ( Understand Geosynthetic Industry.

Bharat Fertilizer

Sale of apartments and agri culture play. Back on dividend list and fertiliser outsourcing. Can’t lose money but long term growth is uncertain.

What I can tell you is that they don’t deserve more than 1-2% weight of portfolio if considering them for long term just yet.

  6. Gut busting and amusing comment by Axis Bank management:

    “Mgmt feels that their Tier 1 CAR of 9.49% is quite comfortable.
    With slowing growth,CAR shouldn't decline much and hence they don't have immediate need to raise capital.”

    Its like saying, USA GDP is likely to grow as most couples are having three children now and population expansion will ensure
    US will continue to have biggest economy well into 22nd century.


    That we are already in pain for 60 years in India under oppression of domestic politicians. Our tolerance has been improving since our grand parents days who worked under organised management of Britishers in reign of Queen Victoria. New generation is used to chaos, hence India can live with commotion and “all is well”.

  19. I have spoken a few times with Omnitex but trying with Strata. What I know is that they will not stop at Strata, or Rockwood Walls. They will continue to innovate and bring new products to market. Maccaferri was estd. 8 years before Strata India hence Strata will be same size 8 years later. I feel the quality of management is even better than Maccaferri. A single project can be worth 200-300-500 Crores once credibility and execution capability is proven.

  21. Hi Amit….

    A simple question which is not very clear from above.. how omnitex is related to strata india?? Is it a 100% subsidary???

    sorry for asking silly question.. but sill i am not able to get clear idea…

    sandeep maddali

    September 16, 2012 at 10:50 am

  22. Dear Sandeep,

    No worries mate, you have to read Omnitex Annual Reports for past three years available at website. Most answers are in that and Care report posted by Jatin.

    Its a 50:50 JV Between Omnitex Ltd and Glen Raven Inc. Now Omnitex promoters own 20% in JV as more equity was infused.



    PS: Let me know if you find something

    Amit Arora

    September 16, 2012 at 8:38 pm

  23. Hi Amit..

    Thanks for addressing my question patiently. It's my bad that i didn't even gone through AR's of the company before posting this question to you.

    Now that after having read the AR's of the last two years and also few of the above posted links.. I have the below queries and would be glad if you can address these questions with the information that you have currently.

    1. How the JV's usually works?? I couldn't see any of the Strata's financials getting reflected in Omnitex over the recent results. In AR FY12 i have seen that they mentioned Starta's revenues reached 50 Cr figure.From when the financials of Strata will get reflected in Omnitex.

    2. If i am not wrong the current holding of Omnitex in Strata is 29.5% from the AR FY12. Please correct me here if am wrong.

    3. Any idea on the moat and Size of the Business.

    4. Why omnitex's financials are just reflecting negligible revenues though it is having stake in various businesses like strata and rockwood walls.

    5. Also please share some information on its core Business. I believe their core business is trading in Fabrics.


    September 17, 2012 at 1:38 am

  24. Amit..

    Few more questions as below.

    1. Is Omnitex manufacturing and marketing the Sunbrella brand in India? or How is it going to get benefited through their JV Glen Raven??

    2. Also would be glad if you can share more information on Omnitex-Geopier Business..


    September 17, 2012 at 2:26 am

  25. They don't have any core business.

    Immediate catalyst is missing. I want to present them something, will get in touch with them soon.

    Moat – They are leaders in their field of expertise. Industry is fragmented and top 4 players have a lot to gain.

    Consolidation of results happens only after 50/51% shareholding, unless Omnitex promoters decide to put remaining 20% into listed entity by issuing more warrants to themselves/shares, they will not be consolidated with Strata.

    They only have land and office worth 10-20 Crores which is converted into Strata India. Try calling their phone number listed on BSE website.

    Sunbrella is not given to Omnitex.


    Amit Arora

    September 17, 2012 at 7:01 am

  26. Hi Amit..

    From your notes “Consolidation of results happens only after 50/51% shareholding, unless Omnitex promoters decide to put remaining 20% into listed entity by issuing more warrants to themselves/shares, they will not be consolidated with Strata” . I understand that their present holding as per their FY12 AR is 29.5% in strata. If they don't convert their holding to more than 50% then what would be the likely scenario. how the company will be valued if they dont have any topline on their consolidated financials


    September 17, 2012 at 12:25 pm

  27. vishalSeptember 17, 2012 8:40 AM

    already so many companies are working on geotexitle business than why strata?


    I believe you mean 'then' instead of 'than'. In 2001 you could have said the same thing about Tanishq. There are 10,000 jewellers in India, why start a branded jewellery company. Doesn't 100% YOY “profitable” sales growth for past 6 years speak for itself for Strata India from 1 Crore to 52 Crores and for Maccaferri from 10 Crores in 2006 to 250 Crores today tell a self evident story ? There are 40 Global Players, 10 in India. Top two are Maccaferri and Strata, rest of global players are not in India meaningfully. Right now its a holding company until there is a further catalyst and valued accordingly, hence deserving of only 1-2% of portfolio.

  28. Dear Amit,

    Acrysil is matching with your criteria no.2.

    # The company makes quartz and granite kitchen sinks (niche prodcuts)….it is the only company manufacturing these products in india.It is an export play.

    # Growth ??? Indian market is not matured for its they are saying ” SINK OF TOMARROW”

  29. Dear Shanid

    Can you predict, forecast, forsee, computr, anticipate, augur, calculate, conjecture, estimate, foreknow, foretell, guess, precognise, be prescient, prevision, project with 80% level of accuracy that their sales will be atleast 2-3 times current level over next 4-5 years. The lower the level of accuracy
    in forecast the less the percentage allocation in portfolio. We DO need to predict future revenues NOT stock prices.


    Amit Arora

    September 18, 2012 at 10:38 pm

  30. Hi Amit..

    Given that it is a holding company at present having 29.5% stake in Strata, how do you think it is valued at the moment. Holding companies in India are trading 50% to their market values.
    Omnitex is now trading around 9 crores Mcap and considering that as 50% of it's market value,strata India's Mcap can be obtained as 61 crores. Looking at their current financials, future potential and the past growth it is fairly valued to me.

    Would be glad to know more on Omnitex's approach towards Strata in the future i.e if they are looking to take their holding to 50% to have their financials reflected in its balance sheet.

    Any comments on its valuation and future approach towards Strata??


    September 19, 2012 at 6:06 am

  31. Valuations in my words “Valuations are like satellites (earth) revolving around 'Intrinsic Value' (Sun) in an elliptical orbit. The long term investor takes comfort in cir-cum-ambulating a galaxy (while sun voyages around center of milky way) whereas trader is a tourist and stays for a season. Since the orbit is elliptical and invisible, there cannot be a universal agreement on valuation. It depends on one's vantage point and varies with time.”

  32. Hi Amit,

    I have got another interesting microcap stock for your scrutiny.sorry in advance if you find this also as a dull idea.

    Mould tek- packaging

    # Consisitent improvement in top line (20 % CAGR in last 10 year)
    # Technology advantage of IML (in-mould labelling)
    # Annual reports and quarterly results are pretty good interms of details and clarity.
    # Hefty dividends @ CMP dividend yield will come more than 9.5 %



    September 20, 2012 at 12:21 pm

  33. Dear Shanid

    Thanks for sharing the idea. Never looked at this company. Yield is gravitating.

    You don't have to be sorry for anything. Nobody can predict future. I could be wrong with Acrysil too.

  38. Dear Amit

    Hope you are enjoying with your stocks.
    Nifty touched 5700 from 4600 in 10 months.I think more than 300+ stocks raised 50%+ in this period.

    I hold J & K Bank & would like to accumulate more around 900 Rs. ( 15% of my portfolio ) till the next ex-dividend date. Based on the info given from the management, I think it can touch 1100-1200 on next ex-dividend date.

    Is there any special dividend from this stake sale and based on 24% of net profit (1000 Crore)as dividend what is the dividend one can expect? ( 40+ rs )



    September 24, 2012 at 11:31 am

  39. Hi Amit..

    How do you see the current progress of Cravatex in opening/ramping up sales. Also any marketing initiatives taken by them apart from that Football sponsoring and signing up with Sehwag. I am not seeing any publicity especially by Sehwag. Any idea on how are they are likely to proceed further?

    Do you believe in Vikas WSP no's and its Promoters ?


    September 26, 2012 at 12:04 pm

  44. The extension of sub-license agreement should be good for Cravatex. The FILA brand has been growing in visibility, i see many guys in my office wearing FILA nowdays. If management is clean, professional and able to execute this can be a great oppoprtunity. How do you see it Amit?


    September 27, 2012 at 6:01 am

  45. Vikas WSP holds a strong Biz- Guar Gum. Google and you will know why i say this???its used in pipe industry, oil exploration etc. Indeed a very lucrative sector. The only prob is the promoters. Not a clean slate….

    I am sure Amit will look into it and throw some more light?


    September 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm

  46. I am already invested in it. Long term growth looks promising though journey can be chequered. I don't see a reason why Vikas WSP should not continue to earn as much money over next five years as it did in past five. Its a play on fracking boom which is real.

  48. If we want to live long enough to enjoy our multibaggers, we have to stay healthy. Eating chips (all brands including those by MNCs including Pepsi, Frito Lay, Heinz), french fries of all fast foods including McDonalds, KFC, baked products and cakes can cause cancer. Answer is simple, they contain 500 times more acrylamide than WHO permissible limits in water. This is one of strong reasons for rise of cancer in Indian cities.–does-this-sound-like-something-to-eat.aspx

  50. In the US there is no legislation on chemicals injected in Fracking.

    President Obama (has either taken bribe) or just sitting idle since February 2012 and not passing the law, Environmental Protection Agency – EPA – has forwarded him documents to approve.

    Gas has made USA oil import free, if they approve EPA then it will slow them down.

    Since 2005 – 2009 Oil companies have injected millions of gallons of diesel into earth for fracking, that is no longer allowed.

    Fracking causes leakage in potable acquifiers hence chemical has to be disclosed. Its grey area and nobody in World knows what chemicals are being injected.

    Hence material has to be bio degradable. Meaning – plant based. Meaning millions of acres of farming. Meaning Guar can not be removed, or grow other millions of acres of land with another crop.

    Companies cannot keep the formula secret like Coca Cola and label it CleanStim etc.

    FracFocus for the past one year is just filling the gap while Govt. dilli dallies and US oil companies grease palms,

    Ridiculous and Hilarious at the same time:

    “To date, EPA has not included oil and gas extraction as an industry that must report under TRI. This is not an exemption in the law. Rather it is a decision by EPA that this industry is not a high priority for reporting under TRI. Part of the rationale for this decision is based on the fact that most of the information required under TRI is already reported by producers to state agencies that make it publicly available. Also, TRI reporting from the hundreds of thousands of oil and gas sites would overwhelm the existing EPA reporting system and make it difficult to extract meaningful data from the massive amount of information submitted.”

  74. Remind me of my prediction in 2017.

    Hawkins, TTK Prestige, Page Industries, Zydus Wellness, Jubilant Foodworks will NOT become 5 baggers for next 5 years i.e. until 31st December 2017. These are supposedly hottest stock of 2011-12.

    But Thangamayil has 80-90% probability to become 8-12 bagger from today at 200 Rs i.e. 1600 – 2400 Rs+ on PE rerating ofr 4-5 times and EPS growth of 4-5 times.

  76. hi amit,
    what do you think of blue star at current levels? looking at the turnaround company is showing along with huge external opportunity, experienced management,should we expect 3 bagger here as well?


    October 19, 2012 at 2:05 pm

  77. Thangamayil has posted 20 crs PAT in 2nd qtr post exp non cash item. Even if we assume 70 cr annual PAT share still available at 5 PE.Thangamayil can easily double from here without getting even slightly expensive.Company operates in Tamilnadu which is the highest gold consuming state in expansion is highly profitable than say TBZ which operates in low gold consuming states.TBZ & Thangamayil posted same profits in Fy12 of 60 crs & TBZ trades at 1300 crs Mcap & Thangamayil at 350 crs. Thangamayil can reach 1000 rs per share if this gap has to be bridged.


    October 22, 2012 at 3:20 pm

  78. Hi Venkat,

    To add to your comment. We all know like back of our hand what Moat Nestle, 3M and Titan Industries represent. But to become 5 bagger Titan Industries market cap should go from 25000 crores to 125000 Crores, which it will NOT for next 5 years.

    They're a great regional company with dominant position in a state. Although they have yet to prove outside the state.

  85. Never came across any Corporate, what ever songs have written in praise of their Integrity, Value and Ethics, who is ready to share their Profit to their Vendors/Employee/Supply Chain. Who wants to let flow Profits from High level of Pyramid to low level. Be it Murthi, Tata or any body else.

    I am farmer by heart and really Appreciate this fellow:

    “We have asked farmers not to sell guar seed below Rs 12,000-14,000 a quintal. Prices should touch Rs 30,000 a quintal by February- March next year,” said BD Agarwal, MD, Vikas WSP, India's largest guar gum manufacturer with a 70,000-tonne processing capacity.”

    Mind you, Your Presentation in Media and PR can make you a person with High Values, but in realities, I senses everything same. Same profit hungry thrust on Low cost labour, material or anything else.

  87. Hello Amit,

    I would like to know, what shall I do with Microsec Finance now. As you suggested, I bought a healthy quantity at 25-26 Rs.
    What should be my stand now?
    FYI, I have already sold 50% at 40 Rs. What about remaining 50%? Should I sell or wait for results on 2nd Nov and hold?

    Also, would like to know your views on MMFSL results. Results looks outstanding to me.

    A few posts up there is a comment on Microsec.

    I can't advice in detail mainly because even I don't know what would happen to price.

    Lots of value in financial sector. I like everything, PSU Banks, Indiabulls Finance, all housing companies, GIC, LIC, CAN FIN etc

  90. Amit..

    What is your view on Simran Farms.. did u change your perception on it…I sense Huge undervaluation and very good opportunity for long term investors… A debt free growing company in a growing sector with throw away valuations. I really doubt if there is something that we(retail investors) are missing here. Is that management Fraud?? Do you think that market is not ready to believe their Financials??? Desperately waiting for your advise on this.


    November 1, 2012 at 11:55 pm

  91. Sandeep,

    I don't believe Simran Farms is fraud or their financials are fudged. In investing micro caps can test patience.

    I can't recommend because loss will be yours if it goes against, sometimes I do advise against buying certain stocks, like I did for Varaad Ventures and Tokyo Plast in November 2011 here

    IMO forget Simran Farms. Focus right now on what is working. Amara Raja, Thangamayail, Housing Finance companies, Banks etc, Cera. Earn 20-30% per annum. Have multiple growth drivers for your portfolio. Become billionaire, then buy 25% of Simran Farms another day if you find value, till then a minor allocation.

    Have been slowly adding Thangamayil, Cravatex and Photoquip. I see enormous growth potential in all three and TJL has given great returns too soon. I am confused if I should deploy more cash on TJL or add on Cravatex and Photoquip. Please advise. Thanks

  98. Hi Amit,

    Gulshan Poly seems to be a good buy at CMP? Just ignorant as to what has kept it away from the Market watchers?




    Fila (BB UK) has signed agreements to supply
    clothing to officials at major events like the
    Sony Ericsson in Miami and the AEGON
    Championships at Queen’s as well as
    supporting British players like JamesWard and
    some Vet events, plus some youngsters. In
    addition they provide the official footware for
    The Championships at Wimbledon.


    November 2, 2012 at 11:37 am

  100. Hi Sachi

    Everyone is ignorant as to what keeps stock price low for prolonged periods along with you. Once a stock grows five times/ upto 100 Crores on fundamentals then 1 trillion $ (5,00,000 Crores) of institutional money wants to buy. Until then only a few lion hearts are interested. Nobody wanted to buy Relaxo at 50 Rs in 2010, Symphony @ 5 Rs in 2009, Hawkins @ 120 Rs, TTK @ 90 Rs etc etc.

    No institution is interested in stocks with market cap less than 50 Crores, even if they buy 4% of a 50 Crores company, their 10,000 Crores portfolio with that investment of 1-2 crores can't make a dent in net results of portfolio. We as retail investors don't have problems of 10,000 Crores surplus, so that we need to find companies with market cap over 500 crores.

    It makes sense to load up on a company as it nears 100 Crores market cap, coz they its close to the knee of S curve eg: 45-180 Rs in RS Software a 6-10 months.

    At other times it can take a decade of patience if investing in ultra micro caps.

  104. Amit,

    How to separate future Relaxo's,TTK's,Symphony's & Hawkin's from 100's of similar looking growth companies is toughest task or may be near to impossible ball-game.We really cannot predict how mkt cycle,economic, regulations or mgmt short-steps can hurt a company.May be we need a good luck + good risk appetite?.How we react with failures, and how we react with short gains , and all that stuff goes in to make a good fortune.

    May be thats why we don't see 100's of Jhunjhunwalas'a or Buffet's in stock market fortune makers, as parameters to determine success is too high..


    November 3, 2012 at 5:50 am

  105. Dear Amit

    A coincidence – TITAN @ 288 being Re1/- stock with marketcap of 25000cr and Thangamayil also @Rs 288/- being Rs10/- stock with a marketcap of 395cr.

    Both are recommended by you. please enlighten what ratio of portfolio with concept for making us understand better.

    What is your view on Maxwell Industries? Will it be as successfull as Page industries.


    November 5, 2012 at 1:37 pm

  107. Hii Amit

    I have shortlisted the following stocks which i guess should have a bright future, each havin its own reason to do so.
    1. Narmada Gelatines(good cash flows, sitting on cash, high dividend yield, plus chances of a takeover)
    2. Talwalkar's better value fitness : We are aware that Talwalkar's is expanding. What i wanted to be sure about was whether they have been expanding without burning cash. Their results gives me the confidence that they are.
    Once the capex reduces i guess it should be more of a cash cow.
    3. LIC housing finance : everybody is interested in property : Until there is a property bubble burst, these companies should keep on doing well. Also 13% margin is quite ok to me.

    I want to know your opinion on these 3.



    November 5, 2012 at 9:43 pm

  108. Dear Aditya,

    You are bang on with Narmada Gelatine ! for short term

    LIC HF is good like any other housing finance company. What do you mean by 13% margin ? please explain

  111. Hi Amit,

    Whats your take on Cravatex Q2 numbers?

    A 25% jump in revenues yoy and 10% qoq seems fair enough considering poor last quarter numbers…
    But still they look like in “Can Do Better” stage..
    Whats your call on it now?

    Kunal Banker

    November 6, 2012 at 4:04 pm

  112. Hi Kunal,

    You have look at Consolidated results which are bad in all angles as the top-line growth is muted less than 5% on yoy and negative growth qoq. Its just because of their Rental income of 1cr their bottomline is looking decent barring that i would say results are pretty bad.


    Share your views.

  126. Dear Amit,

    What is the reason for 'no movement' in the stock even after fantastic results. Is there anything that is missed out here in the story? Considering the business visibility, growth and profitability, it must be running somewhere around 200+, at least.

  129. On few websites, people are talking lot about bad promoter reputation as the reason of stock price not going up inspite of good results!

    Amit, what do you think on that?


    November 17, 2012 at 10:06 am

  130. Dear Amit

    Are you comfortable with tainted promoters of Vikas ? It seems heavily discounted with growth it has shown, but why mkt is giving so much discount, is it due to corporate governance issues ?


    November 17, 2012 at 2:49 pm

  131. Hi Amit,
    Can you please re-check and confirm whether Corvi is a part of Photoquip or an independent venture of Photoquip promoters?


    November 18, 2012 at 11:16 am

  132. Hi Amit.. Have you looked at zylog systems having sales of more then 2000 Cr. CAGR growth of more then 25% for last five years, But after the recent fall its market cap is around 250 cr.. Do you look at it as an opportunity to enter into Zylog Systems..

    November 19, 2012 at 5:19 am

  136. Thanks Amit.. Will wait for your view and advice on the same..


    November 19, 2012 at 5:39 am

  137. Pls avoid Zylog…
    Its finance at a mess now!!..
    Wait till it covers its debt or posts decent quarterly result..


    November 19, 2012 at 6:52 am

  138. My initial thoughts on Zylog,
    Current Market capital : 225Cr
    Debt on the Books :: 700Cr (2012 balance sheet)
    Cash on the Books :: 200
    Enterprise value :: 725Cr

    So it's around 725 Market capital company as of today. so it's trading around 4PE trailing. revenues are good. i am still trying to understand the 50% drop in net profit last quarter.

    They have added 20% of employees in last one year, that seems reflecting on their 26% increase in employee cost.

  141. Hi Amit,

    Have you looked at ILFS Investment Manager? It can be a contra bet on the infra & RE sector.
    Although, overhang of high salaries and constant dilution thru ESOP's will remain.

    December 13, 2012 at 9:35 am

  142. Hi Shashi,
    It should prove to be a multibagger with 18-24 months time frame. They have started heavily investing in their brands and it's reflecting on their topline. It's an excellent franchise at CMP.
