Hi Prahalad,
All commodity price going up...I feel rice related stock have good future in india. last few weeks i saw siva group accumulating some rice related stocks, even Jim roger is bullish on rice. What is your call on this commodity? can you suggest two three rice related stocks for investment?my take is Usher Agro and kohinoor . I appreciate your reply.thanks

Usher Agro and Kohinoor are companies with high debt and -ve cash flows from operations .. which means the companies are making no profit at the operating level..

I would say a strict avoid.

Rice processing mills are not doing much value add..

companies like GAEL and jayant are producing value added products (derivatives) which are being used to produce complex products..

look at toothpaste which contains sorbitol made from maize..

rice wheat are commodities which the govt will control if the prices increase .. dis-proportionally by export bans or hoarding restrictions..
So look for companies that are adding value beyond the basic level..

Unique organics and kothari products looks good/cheap....
though promoter shareholding is low in unique .. but initial investments can be made..
