Please read forum guidelines properly before initiating a thread.

To nurture a vibrant community ValuePickr does not restrict anyone from starting a thread on a stock of his/her choice. Only Caveat is if you are going to introduce a discussion on a stock, we expect you to do your homework and start the thread with some basic info-set, and 1st level analysis such as growth drivers, a few positives & negatives, immediate triggers if any, and enumerate some RISKS. Nothing very heavy is required, but enough to set the tone for 2nd level of discussions.

Thread initiators are usually alerted to edit their post, and make necessary changes before thread is opened up again. So you/others interested can look to edit the post in order to meet prescribed guidelines. We have the responsibility - especially the thread initiator (assumption is he/she is a savvy investor) - to cater to bringing everyone on same page - quickly - if you know what we mean.

Net profit is one of the important indicators to show the financial health of the company. Net profit of Muthoot Microfin is Rs 163.89 Cr and the compounded growth of profit in the past 3 years is 108.02 %. The PAT margin of Muthoot Microfin is 11.47 %.

Muthoot Microfin, I feel has good growth story ahead, Here are my thoughts about it:

  1. Last year they had 163 Cr Profit. This year they will clock close to 500 Cr.
  2. Currently it is having a PE of 23 as per Screener, after they report annual results it will be close to 8, that will be dirt cheap.
  3. Recently they got 750 Cr in IPO money which is not costing them anything. so considering any Microfin charges 22-23% interest, they are set to get additional 200 odd crores of profit.
  4. They are expanding beyond Kerala and hopefully that growth will add additional headwinds.
  5. Whatever i read about the group, looks like they are honest set of people.
  6. Also, CEO is a professional and not from family which i feel is additonal plus.
  7. Family holds good amount of holding, meaning skin in the game.
  8. If i look at the other listed players, this stock should be going to around 20K crore market share easily in next few years.

Disc: No recommendations, i am invested.
