Allied Digital and Glodyne Techno are the other two.
Yeah - Allied Digital.
Now you know why this sector (RIMS sector I mean) has been beaten down inspite of good business outlook.
Therefore the funda is to evaluate the management and then the numbers. I honestly don’t know how to evaluate the former other than to look at div. payouts.
If anybody has any insight into any of these managements, do share. The business potential is good in this sector. It might be a good chance to pick these up at current bargain prices, only if we can somehow ascertain the thing about managements.
If the mgmt is much aggressive on only raising capital and issuing share, then we better be cautious on such cos. For eg - look at Allied Digital…stock has crashed badly and I smell cooked nos etc there.
So the foremost thing is - are the nos genuine? Is the business actual and generates cash? Are there competitive advantages for stability and growth of current earnings?
Ayush - valid concerns. They will need to be addressed for sure. Let me try and find out. But as far as I know, the business is real, niche and Rakesh Jhunjunwala had purchased a stake in the firm. I am not able to comfirm if he has taken a exit or is still holding on.
Here is what I put up earlier on Omnitech just to lend continuity to the thread.

This stock now has a mcap of only 4.2cr now. What is more important is the learning that mindless expansion by issuing equity is a big red flag. Learning a lot through these old posts by seasoned VP investors. The best kind of education. Thanks all
