Can anyone caution if there are any red flags in balance sheet/company/promoters ?

( Quality of business not satisfied.They lack ‘brand’… But felt the valuations are cheap )

Microcap with good ratios. MDA of 2013 AR of the company has a nice descriptions of the oppurtunity/risk involved.

Plus Points:-

  • ROE/ROCE increasing every year and are now 20+
  • Low PE, High Div yield
  • Positive cash flow


  • Unknown management credentials ???

  • Unknown moat - What special thing they poses, which will make customer comes to them year after year. This spurt in sales might have been come due to weak rupee ?

  • Unknown moat #2 - Why cant exporter from Bangaladesh/Vietnam/Philipines can out-compete them?

  • High dependence on export. Forex fluctuation risk. There have been cases of EU backslash against Chinese dumping.

  • The advantage of Turkey for exporting socks to EU cant be ignored

  • PCAS

Charlie is Charlie…Excerpts from his essay

Over the long term, it’s hard for a stock to earn a much better return than the business which underlies it earns. If the business earns 6% on capital over 40 years and you hold it for that 40 years, you’re not going to make much different than a 6% returnâeven if you originally buy it at a huge discount. Conversely, if a business earns 18% on capital over 20 or 30 years, even if you pay an expensive looking price, you’ll end up with a fine result.

So the trick is getting into better businesses
