I noticed two cases of promoter’s relatives selling shares recently. Any thoughts on this?
Disc: I completely exited booking profits earlier. I had plans to re-enter.
Thanks in advance,

Promoter’s relative’s dumping again. Please see here,
Any thoughts on this?


And again selling,

I wouldn’t worry because there is no change in promoter & promoter group shareholding pattern,


The change will reflect in updated SHP, which will be filled by company. Currently we have SHP of 30th June on link shared by you

Hi any update on the company ? The stock seems to be falling quite a bit from its highs of Rs. 557+

I can see that stock is taking support at 340 level since last 1.5 months. This is also 50% of Fib level. during last week Nifty tumble, it tested 38.2% Fib level and bounced back very quickly to 50% fib level. RSI of the stock is also decent and shows that its oversold. looking at this technical indicators, i have taken position in this stock since last 1 month with an avg of 357 Rs. and will be adding more at dip. See my technical analysis below. please correct if i have misunderstood any part.

While reading the AR, I got a feeling that they are the only players in India . But Balaji seems much bigger than them., This seems like a company thats not investing in capacity for growth and just chugging along, doing a very good biz (ROE, ROCE are excellent) , paying good dividend… Reading all of your comments above, growth seems only to come from market expansion - organic …
in the AR, they talk about 1.67% R&D Investment - for some product development , but nothing that talks about specifics here.

I hope these guys use their technology and experience and start investing , start communicating more transparently …
At the moment, there are much better opportunities for growth out there…


Thanks Vikas for the detailed views on the company. with the company posting poor numbers this quarter and the correction today, what is your current view for the company.

Does it still look investable?

I did not post in this thread to avoid cluttering but did post in my PF thread about the change in my capital allocation. I exited this when it looked fully valued to me, since I had more alternatives in mind which were better priced for growth. The problem here was management’s non-disclosure in general and about the expansion plans in particular. The only reason to stay invested would have been a fast growth by expansion. Margins generally will fade with time, back to historic averages. Do not know what happened since.

PS: my PF thread is here: The Anti-Portfolio


I noticed that this company has not been cooperating with Crisil, leading Crisil to withdraw their rating in 2018


I am curious to understand how this should be interpreted. I understand that the company has been mostly debt free since 2018. But the non cooperative approach It still seems fishy and unethical to me, causing me the doubt the integrity of management. This also leads me to question if I can trust their financial numbers at face value.

Any thoughts on how to read this situation?

Hi Sayeed,

I think there is nothing much to read here, this is rating agencies continuous job and there is no obligation on the company side to give all the data that they have requested. Rating agencies usually work for institutions who lends, they rely on rating agencies vetting of business debts and other parameters, lenders use this report to take decisions on financing the company. If there is no such requirement these agencies still keep giving a periodical update. Some companies give the necessary info when they think their position is strong on the balance sheet side. This will work a s catalyst on companies stock price.


@vikas_sinha a year later, this is so true. I listened to the AGM while trying to understand this company better, and the management comes across as very fragile. They’re afraid of disclosing expansion details lest their competitors find out. For the same reasons, they don’t disclose their end market, nor their supply contracts. If the major advantage you have over your competitors is fairly basic information, that’s a losing model.

I thought you’d be interested as the information you were searching for a year ago is now in public domain. The EC for their 10x capacity expansion came through, and sheds light on new products. Sharing it here for anyone who comes across this company later on.

Disclosure - not invested.
