General Update !!!

I think in the last week I have been bombarded with comments and emails about the markets and sankhya in particular – clear signs of panic 🙂 . I think one has to understand that in times like these, the best bargains are visible and available. If one does not buy when price is significantly lower than value, then one needs to evaluate, if one should be in stock markets at all or not. If fluctuations in price changes one’s conviction, then there’s no conviction at all. A lot of the price damage in the small cap index and some stocks in particular had probably triggered some margin selling in other cash stocks, which further escalated the price damage and a lot of stocks became collateral damange. But this is a market cycle and such things happen all the time. Seasoned investors take such opportunities with both hands. Small cap index is at strong support levels so hopefully there should be more of time correction than price, but as I keep saying there’s no point is watching index as we invest in stocks and not index. Identify good strong stocks and back your conviction. We have already seen close to 40% correction in the index itself (which is huge) and we are near strong supports, so probably the small caps could now outperform the nifty.

As far as sankhya is concerned, the sudden price damage seems to be more of lack of buying than anything else. Today’s price action supports the theory and more importantly last month’s sudden price damage came on much lower than average six month volume, clearly showing its more because of lack of buying. The management clarification is welcome and this announcement  clearly gives a fundamental fillip to the company. By the way today company also announced appointment of Company secretary. Those who have any doubts should attend the AGM and get it clarified but hopefully sanity is restored here.

Have faith in yourself and dont expect multi-baggers overnight. We have seen lot of 5-10-20 baggers and more will certainly come, but in time and not over night.

God Bless !!!

    What do you think of V2 retail at current price?

    • v2 at 15rs had tremendous margin of safety…that’s obviously not the case at CMP….just like most of the stocks i discussed here….this is usually my standard answer for questions like these….

    Dear Ace, having followed you for the last three and a half years and seen how conviction is generated in invested stories, I am not bothered by this down trend. In fact I want to make full use of this opportunity before the tide turns. Thanks for your selfless initiative to put investment in right perspective for us retail investors.

  10. totallooser says:

    what do you think about goverment bailout of IL&FS?

    • i think the move was quick and warranted. Very good on their part. I hope the wrong doings-if any, should also be probed, but the goverment’s crisis management should be appreciated IMHO.

    Dear Ace, Attended Ram info AGM. The MD during informal interaction with a few of us informed that they are developing a product on MARS (Malnutrition analysis and reporting system). He informed that Ram info has an early mover advantage in this area where there aren’t many players right now. He said that the market size is enough for all the existing players to get enough business. He said that our co has atleast a two year head start over new entrants in the space and the co hopes to make the most of it. It’s in advanced talks with AP and Telangana and are likely to get few orders in immediate future. To a question on trade receivables being shown as LT debts, he said that the company was having problems with UP govt regarding payments since 2016. But now the issue is resolved and payments are likely to flow without much delay like in case of states like AP and Telangana. He said that by the end of this year all payment backlogs from UP GOVT is likely to be received. They are also looking at various other areas like smart street lighting etc, where they have already executed some works. The MD also said that they intend to undertake serious brand building exercise from Oct this year. Am reminded of last sankhya AGM where the sankhya MD said the same thing 😊 Will follow the story closely. Thank you for bringing a very promising story to our notice like so many others in the past.

    • congrats to you for attending this AGM. i think this one thing most investors fail to do. this is the best time to catch the top management and know their plans in detail…both formal and informal. great work.
