Profit after tax 




Though the company saw a stumble at the end of 2020 by posting a comparatively lower margin which stood at 7.8% it posted a profit of 506.26 crores at the very start of the current year. The approximate earnings per share of the company stood at 14 as of March 2020. The P/E ratio is at 12.50, indicating that the company is undervalued. 

Some of its listed peers include Tata steel Ltd, JSW steel Ltd, SAIL and Jindal Steel and Power. The company has been performing better than its peers in terms of revenue growth which stands at 12% for the same. 

Should you buy the stock? 

Being a leader in the industry is always a big plus. Adding to that, the company offers cookie points to the investor by bringing up its achievements in specific fields such as Ferro, which easily put it among the top metal producers in India. Unlike most others, the company has a well-diversified portfolio with a mix of customers from both domestic and international institutions. 

Strong financial performance can also be added as another advantage. The location of the company has ensured positive winds due to its proximity to raw materials. Post the issue, it is expected that the company will drag down the debt signalling a green light for potential investors. The combination of large production capacity and adaptive technology all act in its favour. 

However, given the current scenario, it is doubtful as to how the entire plan of the company would replicate. 

In conclusion

While there are a handful shortcomings, the company as a whole happens to be a good pick for any investor. With a premium of 100 -103 in the grey market, the company is sure to grab a lot of attention. However, we recommend you run a thorough analysis before you put your cash into it.
