All your views on the company is highly welcomed and lets discuss this . Company website :

Hi Deepak,

I also had a quick look at the company after Q2 nos but after visiting their website, I couldn’t get a feel of something special in this co. I think though the valuations may be cheap but qualitatively the co may not go a long way.


Hi Ayush,

Can you please elaborate a bit on why you did not feel anything special .

It would be a good learning for me.

Going through their website, I felt that the space they are operating in has a limited potential and must be competitive in nature. Offlate, my thinking for small caps has been that we should look for somespecialty, higher growth (or significant undervaluation) to justify the higher risk we undertake.
