Cheviot has a huge value trapped in the form of short term investments. The company has a EPS of 63/- and most of it enhances the cash and ST holding. Very small amount (13/-) comes in the form of dividend to the investor.
In absence of huge capex i believe that the promoters should pay the investors rather than invest the money through the company.The promoters in fact hold 75% stake in the company. The company has a non current investment of 109 crore or 242 per share ( invested in debentures/ shares of indian corporates)
Add to that 46 rupees of current investment (Debentures etc).
With so much in liquid investments + business with EPS of 63 available at 5 times EPS -Anyknowledgeableinvestors suggest if this a good investments
i think it is a huge undervalued stock at mkt of 230 crore it has non current investment in debenture comes to 169 crores and current investment 24.80 cr. total comes about 193 and mkt is just 230 cr. and comapany yearly last five year average net profit after tax comes about 29 cr. and it is debt free company and also very small equity outstanding. company has added new product in last year. so i think at current valuation it is worth investing.
