Gaurav ji: I appreciate your reply. It means a lot.
call me a fool, but neither I am a contrarian nor have I done extensive research (little bit though). However I have read a lot about few of the companies mentioned above.
Rationale behind the stock picks is more titled towards cloning and selecting low priced/small caps. Months back I read ‘The Dhandho investor’ and cloning has stuck in my non-financial (para medical) head. I will try to explain this individually
Jain Irrigation: Not a bad name in the sector. I know some executives in the company and they sound very positive about long term prospect of the company. Cloned - Prof. Manekar bought big chunk around 100+ levels. I have bought it before that and at a lower price.
South Ind bank: Sound and experienced management. I know there is nothing extra ordinary here but the annual report last year looks in sync with the country’s ‘development’ wave. target of 30-35 branch ever year for the next 5 years or so. Cloned- Mr. Pabrai bought around 32. I have bought it before that and at a lower price.
Edelwiess: Founder Rashesh Shah is of high stature in the sector. Cloned- RJ bought around 55.
Bilcare & opto: Nothing but high conviction of some FDI news. I know this is not the right way but still I think both companies will be back on the track slowly. I am not in any hurry. Not sure but RJ still holds Bilcare. I am making loss in Opto.
SJVN: the only stable power company with low valuations. Posted highest ever profit recently. Many brokerage companies came out with buy call. Irrespective of that, I am very positive on this company. Saw Riddham Desai today saying he is very postive on the over all sector because of new Govt.
Meghmani: I have started one new thread for the same. Read Mr. Kohli’s report saying this in on his high conviction list. I have bought it before that and at a lower price.
Aksh Opti: Purely on the conviction that pan India 4G launch will take this company on the next level. Recently they got some order from Rajasthan Govt.
Gufic Bio: My first 2x unfortunately my least allocated counter. This is what happens to a new bee. Nevertheless, being in the same field I understand their product line and they are continuously recruiting because of new product addition.
Much more to add about each and every company but I would end here.
Complete restructuring sounds bit scary. I would like you and others to share more thoughts on this.
