Insider is once again trading on sep14. 3786 shared acquired from Market..

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Purushottam:

yes 3786 shares bought at the avg price of 28.05 per share.. on sept14,2010

I really dont know why such small quantities.. when as an individual I could have bought 10,000 shares on any given day..

but I was looking at the demat request data in annual report. (pg 11)

Demat Request approved in NSDL: 3,22,450
Demat Request approved in CDSL: 1,34,715

which is about 4,57,165 shares which almost equals (approximately equals to the no of shares promoters have bought in past 1 year..)

which raises the question is 3786 the no of shares that have been dematerialized from physical form and them bought by the promoters?

Also only 40% of GAEL stock is dematerialized 60% is still in physical form and hence cannot be traded..
=======================
Considering only Public shareholding
Public shareholding: 49,958,920
Public shareholding in Dematerialized form: 30,171,175

% public shareholding in Demat: 60.39%
So there is 39.60% of public shareholding which is not available for trade..

Maybe the promoter buying shares is basically shares that are in physical form being converted into demat and then transferred to the promoters??

Just my speculation.. one thing is clear liquidity is low cause last month I had short delivery of 2500 shares in NSE and I received the shares after auction..
=========================
For NSE settlement no. 2010165 there is a short delivery of 2493 share/s of GAEL .These shares may be received through Auction on or after 03-September-10. And the payout/closeout would be credited by 04-September-10.
=========================
There is a SEBI standard that public shareholding should be atleast 50% in demat form..

Now GAEL has only 60% public shares in demat form.. so promoters cannot buy more than 10% of the public holding in demat form cause if they buy more then SEBI requirement of 50% ublic holding in demat would not be satisfied.. which means promoters can only buy physical shares and get it converted into demat..

Please note this is just my understanding and could be wrong as there is no clear indication that promoters are buying only physical shares..

Hi,

I found TilakNagar Industries limited stock a very good stock..
Citi has invested very recently..
Stock has good products...
Your view..

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Purushottam:

Tilaknagar:
CMP: 88.45
Market Cap: 857.35Cr
Debt: 446.23Cr
Reserves: 174.46Cr
Sales March 2010: 486.21Cr
================
The problem with Tilaknagar is:
LArge increase in Equity base..
March 2009 Equity: 5.73Cr
March 2010 Equity: 32.31CR

That is an increase of 563% over last year..
Given it has given a 1:2 bonus

still the large equity base will cause the stock price to remain depressed..

Yes it has total liquor sales close to 1000Cr for its brands.. but right now it looks more than fairly valued..

Having said that my father is in the defence services and he does like the "Mansion House" Brandy..

If you are looking for a liquor company .. the one that I know of is "IFB Agro" that is cheap..

- It has alredy commisioned a grain based plant.
- It received 8Cr as green house gas credit.. (last year 3Cr)

-ve: No dividents..

Also there is 14.x% stake in IFB agro by people who are "predators" ..

Hi Whatup,

Whats ur take on Alok industries?

Alok is a strict No as it has huge debt and will face equity dilution.. hence stock price will remain subdued..

Hi Prahalad,

I am assuming you are already aware of the below news about riddhi siddhi

http://www.moneycontrol.com/news/business/roquettetobuymajoritystakeriddhisiddhiarm_512306.html

In this interview he also gives the enterprise value of corn subsidiary.

At your ease please look into how much GAEL should command on a comparative basis.

Warm Regards
Sid

amitjd said...

Whatever the valuation that Riddhi Siddhi may be getting but the whole deal doesn't seems to be against minority investors. They are selling all the plants that produce the value added products and that too in a subsidiary, that means there won't be any open offer for the shareholders. I hope Guj Amb Management doesn't do anything similar...

amitjd said...

Sorry, I mean that the whole deal seems to be against the minority shareholders...

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Sid/Amidjd:

Riddhi Siddhi is going to be sold for 1250Cr for 85% of equity (15% of Roquette stake will be cancelled.. which means Riddhi Siddhi valuation is: 1470Cr

Now Riddhi Siddhi has only 3 plants and all the plants are being sold out to Roquette then..

the cash stays in the company .. so yes Riddhi Siddhi investors get a raw deal.. maybe a good one time divident but that is all.. the promoters keep the cash..(how much Rs1120 per share!! WOW!!!) and hope that they invest it wisely..

1.5 Times sales is the valuation for the corn business..

Its funny that a few years back Riddhi siddhi had bought the corn business from Glaxo and are now selling the same to a multinational firm..
Considering the fact that Riddhi is targetiing 200Cr EBDITA which means a valuation of less than 10 times EBDITA for Corn business...

I think Riddhi Siddhi promoters have sold it cheap.. or they expect the business environment to be more competitive.. in the future (with GAEL also entering karnataka .. with a corn starch plant)

As far as I understand the largest corn starch derivatives products sorbitol, Dextrose, Glucose form majority of the derivatives business.. so value add by Roquette is going to be small volume derivatives business..

however overall maize derivatives business is going to be strong.. and will expand..

GAEL promoters have a higher shareholding 64% compared to Riddhi Siddhi: 43% so I would expect GAEL to continue to hold and expand their business and not sell out..

so come to think of it .. this is Good news for GAEL as investors are better off in GAEL than in Riddhi siddhi as they will get better returns in GAEL as company has no plans to sell their corn starch business..

- Riddhi Siddhi investors will become shareholders in the holding company.. and that also minority shareholders.. in the starch business...

So Hip hip Hurray!! for GAEL investors.. 100 looks cheap for GAEL considering the various divisions (Agro commodities, Spining, wind energy and Corn starch derivatives)

CRISIL upgrades outlook on cash credit of Gujarat Ambuja Exports
(ADPnews) - Jan 13, 2011 - Indian rating agency CRISIL raised the outlook on an A-rated cash credit of Gujarat Ambuja Exports Ltd (BOM:524226) to "stable" from "negative".

http://adpnews.info/?nid=8dbcbf46793ad309

Check the link we have gr8 company on our hands....

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Purushottam:

This is a great news.. thanks for the info..
http://www.crisil.com/Ratings/RatingList/RatingDocs/gujarat-ambuja-exports_13jan11.htm

Some additional interesting info from the crisil report is:
=====================
GAEL has maize processing capacities of 0.35 mtpa, located in Himatnagar (Gujarat) and Sitarganj (Uttarakhand). The company is planning to set up a new plant in Karnataka, which is expected to commence commercial operations by December 2011 and increase its maize processing capacity by 0.25 mtpa.
=====================
- GAEL is increasing maize processing capacity by 250,000Metric tonnes by setting up new plant
- A 71.4% increase over current capacity of 350,000 Metric tonnes..
- The plant will commence commercial operations in Dec 2011
- Current capacity of Riddhi Siddhi is 440,000MT per year
- GAEL will have 600,0000MT per year by end of Dec 2011
(I guess looking at the competition Riddhi siddhi management decided to exit the business!!..)
=====================
So next year's growth in profitability and revenues is also being taken care of by the management..

Each passing day irrespective of the share price movement the net worth of GAEL is increasing..

GAEL is turning out to be more of a long term wealth creator ..

so total asset worth 433.88 cr is put by mutual Fund..

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Purushottam:

Are you trying to say HSBC mutual fund has been buying into GAEL?

Can you point us to some location where we can get this info..

Total market cap of GAEL is 439Cr so .. something is missing.. or maybe there is a disconnect in understanding your message..

can you provide some clarity..

as you said it is on MOney control.. The worth is actually the worth of the Fund and not the worth of stocks they are holding .. I put it wrong... However all it indicates is strong stock that is ready to take off.. Mutual Funds are buying in slowly and steadly..

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Purushottam:

"all it indicates is strong stock that is ready to take off.. Mutual Funds are buying in slowly and steadly.."

I would agree demand is more than supply.. just look at the 1 year returns.. GAEL is up 73% on a yearly basis.. beating the index
NIFTY March 8,2010: 5124
NIFTY March 8,2011: 5463
Growth: 6.6%

while GAEL gave a return of 73% .. and its not even started..

Best performing stock in my portfolio

Thanks

Yes .. I had seen ads for karnataka plant before..

the related ads section does provide a lot of info.. We have a winner in our hands no doubt..

I hope people do not sell the stock too soon at 50 levels that would be a shame..

I remember someone in moneycontrol saying that he has all his investments in one company and thats GAEL.

One of my friends who's father is an ex banker who used to deal with GAEL also said GAEL is one of the best companies and we should hold the stock for long term..

Hi Whatsup,

Whats your take on GAEL as on date? Do you think it will have a uptrend at chances of reaching 100 s in 3-4 yrs timeline or should we exit the stock?

I am currently holding 6500 shares at avg. price of Rs.30.

Do advice me what should i do? Thanks!

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Anonymous ji:

ist.. if its still short term (ie its less than 1 year since you bought @ 30) then you should book short term losses.. as the losses can be used for short term gains for next 3-5 yrs

GAEL is a value buy and as per my understanding peak oil will result in commodity companies to do well..


I would buy GAEL.. if I had cash.. but given a choice between GAEL and Jayant I would still buy jayant agro..

Drop in Corn prices. Do you think this will help GAEL results?

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Anonymous ji:

yes corn prices are falling due to expected large corn acreage in US..

GAEL should do well because of an integrated setup..

short term fluctuation can bring about short term profit/loss

however we could see higher depreciation as the new plant in karnataka enters commercial production

I would still hold on and target stock price of rs100/share..

I think we should concentrate on 100+cr net profit consistently by GAEL every year going forward..

Again after the agm on 14th Sept 2013 no dividend has been announced.

What is ur take on GAEL now?

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Anonymous ji:

I think it would be unfair to say that gael did not announce dividend.. generally gael announces dividend after dec results..

what i can see is that promoters are busy buying from open market.. and that is an indication that the value will be stored in gael.. for the long term.

also saw that retail 1kg pouches are available of gael cooking oil..

which is good cause margins are better in retail sales..

I feel we need to be patient..

I dont like any of the stocks..
Assam company, BL KAshyap, JVL Agro, Orient Green.

The industrial landscape is not going to change anytime soon.. so companies with lot of debt are not going to turn profitable overnight.. and energy problems have not even started..

I would still suggest sticking to
Jayant, GAEL, Tata Comm and NHPC

as they are all fundamentally sound company with lot of upside..
and good management

What'sUp Prahalad said...

Anonymous ji:

Unfortunately I cannot predict the stock price or its immediate future (yes 1 yrs like immediate future)

here's my investment logic:
1. hydro power is one power generating system that does not use any fossil fuel.
2. first hydro power plant built is still generating power.. so these are lifelong assets..
3. hydro power plants can be easily started and stopped and hence ideally suited for merchant power plants (merchant power plants are power plants which provide peak power.. and the elect. selling rates for merchant power plants is like 2-3 times the selling price of normal power plants (coal/nuclear fired which cannot be started or stopped so easily..)

4. Most of NHPC power generated is sold as normal power at very cheap rates when in an ideal situation they should be used for peak power..

5. This conversion for normal/bulk power to merchant power will be the game changer for NHPC (I think..)

SJVM and other new hydro power players are actually functioning as merchant power plants (for most of their electricity sales) and hence earn more..
----------------------
Its a good investment in a bad situation.. but in a feel good environment (like now) it might lag other investment options..

We must remember that Power is a regulated industry by the govt and power companies cannot expect returns greater than x% on their investment.. That's one reason some of these companies try and show losses to increase their selling price of electricity..
---------------------
conclusion: 1 yrs investment horizon is too short term for an investment in NHPC.. (however there is always a chance that the company gets rerated.. due to some changes done by the govt or NHPC becomes more merchant power oriented..)

I hope that helps.. and gives you an all around prespective..
