About the Untested - but worth a good look category

Opportunities in lesser known, or unheard of stocks, but there is something about them that stands out.

Maybe its worth looking into them and investigating more on the business?

Anyone who thinks they have a promising NEW stock idea - this is the place to post it!


I find one such idea Dai Ichi Karkaria Limited. There was coverage by HDFC Security in August 2014. the company is in speciality chemical business with very good prospect of JV with Nelco Champion. I have value pickr discussion which I started but could not update regularly.
