 Current Market cap is 0.11 times its March 2009 sales. Pitti laminations however has been impacted by the economic slowdown and sales for the Twelve Trailing Months (TTM) is close to 201.22Cr which is a drop of 20%+  in topline and bottomline of 4.6Cr (25% drop). The stock however seems to have bottomed out and is available close to its 200Day EMA. Divident payout is 10% but the avg divident payout for the past 5 years is 17% (Rs 1.7 per share) which is 5% divident payout for CMP.

Recommendations:  Strong buy at these levels since Pitti Laminations is an indirect play on the power infrastructure story of India. Divident return is also a healthy 2.9% (10% divident) but long term divident return is 5% which is great.

Strategy: Buy now at these levels and with improved fundamentals in next year we can expect it to be a multibagger.
