Low PE is the ONLY reason I’m interested in this stock. Its PE is below 7 and also well below its comparable peers, and so I see it as an opportunity for some good medium term gains. Invite views from others. Thanks
The reason for Uflex’s low proce is due to past conviction of its CMD…Ashok Chaturvedi…see extract beow
Chaturvedi and Neera Yadav, the former chief secretary of Uttar Pradesh were on Tuesday sentenced to four year in prison by a CBI court in a 1994-95 Noida land scam case. Following the judgment, the company’s shares crashed 20% on the Bombay Stock Exchange. In a communication to BSE, Uflex stressed that the judgment had no financial implication for the company. Chaturvedi, it said, had been found guilty in his ‘‘individual capacity’’ in a case relating to allotment of land for the company’s employees. Uflex added that the land was not used by the company and that Chaturvedi was taking ‘‘appropriate legal steps’’ in the matter.
Known to be a charmer in Delhi’s power circles, Chaturvedi is no stranger to controversy. In 2001, he was arrested by the CBI under the Prevention of Corruption Act for allegedly bribing a top excise department official. Former cabinet secretary Prabhat Kumar was forced to resign as Jharkhand Governor after reports that Chaturvedi had paid for his private parties appeared in the media.
Thankyou for the information. I was suspecting that their debt could have been the reason, but this info clears things up.
To other readers who may be curious with regards to the date of conviction, it is actually December 2010.
Do not invest in this company. The promoter is convicted criminal. I invested years ago and within 3 months news came that he is going to jail. I lost 35% money in days. I sold at loss and came out. The CMD is Chor. Do not partner with him.
