Greaves Cotton can appreciate by 30% in one year

Greaves Cotton Ltd is a Rs 1,800 crore multi product, multi locational company, and one of the leading engineering companies in the country, with core competencies in diesel/petrol engines, farm equipments and gensets. Last year has been quite good for the automobile industry, with the passenger vehicle segment recording significant improvement in demand due to new product launches and lower interest rates on consumer loans. While sales were flat in the medium and heavy commercial vehicles segment, the light commercial vehicle segment recorded a decent increase in volumes. In case of three wheelers, demonetisation affected the demand somewhat negatively. This was more so in cash sensitive areas. The commercial vehicle segment is expected to register an increase in the next few quarters, as they are a popular choice for the freight and logistics sector. Notwithstanding the moderation in growth in the last few quarters, the demand for light commercial vehicles is expected to remain buoyant over the long term, as these vehicles are a preferred mode due to stringent restrictions on entry of heavy duty trucks and expanding city limits. Modern power systems and large gensets are a much needed back-up for large corporates in the telecom, IT, medical, retail and the hospitality sectors. Higher government spending on infrastructure, especially in roadways and railways, has accelerated the need for diesel generators. Greaves Cotton has over five-decade-long experience in the auxiliary power business, serving retail and commercial complexes, hotels, hospitals, defence and many government departments. While the power industry has been going through a transformation, the outlook seems quite bright in the foreseeable future. Facing multiple growth challenges, Greaves Cotton posted a weak set of numbers, missing the revenue and profit estimate figures of most analysts. This made the stock correct by nearly 20% in the last 2-3 months, but it has stabilised somewhat currently. There does not seem any downward risk from the present level, as the valuations command a tax free dividend yield of nearly 4% for the stock. As many fund managers and analysts feel, when the economy picks up, demand for the company’s products will start to pick up in the near future. 

The Greaves Cotton stock currently quoting at Rs 135 can potentially climb by nearly 30% to arrive at a price target of Rs 175 in a one-year time horizon.

Its so unfortunate that my husband left me after five years in marriage. thought he finally left the house in the third year of our marriage just because i was unable to conceive. i wonder what happened to Andrea Delacruz my husband that makes him leave the house. he is a God fearing person and very humble. i know that leaving me wasn't ordinary. we dated for seven months and i never notice such character in him before i married him. i cried and wept through my days and night because i really love Andrea Delacruz my husband. in the process of crying and thinking, i recall that his grand mom never support our marriage, she never wanted me to be married to the family. i never give up and i prayed for God to intervene. one a faithful day it was a Thursday morning when my fellow college in my working place noticed my attitude and behavior seems different from the real me and i never wanted to disclosed my Family issues but i shared with her my feeling and what i have been going through. she told me that something similar to these happened to her Elder sister and she told me that everything will be fine. she later invite me to her house to meet her elder sister then i opened up to her and she refers me to a man called Dr. Sambo and i did just as she said. i called Dr. Sambo immediately and he respond to my call in that moment and the first thing he said was 'WOMAN WOMAN' you have to believe and have faith that your problem will be solved. i asked, what should i do? then he said to me in two days time my husband will be back and i asked, Dr. Sambo is this going to be real? the last thing he said was that i will testify of his work. i did just as instructed and i watch for good forty-eight {48} hours. hmm-mm, it was a good night time at 10:05pm within the days that Dr. Sambo told me that my husband Andrea Delacruz will be back, at first i heard the bell rings getting close to my door i heard someone saying HONEY!!!, it sound familiar i opened the door and i saw my husband standing and weeping in front of me. i was not surprised because its all i have been praying for him to come back home. Guess what in six days after i noticed my system and my body temperature is changed and i went to clinic for check up and the doctor told me that there is life in me which means i am pregnant i really wants to use this opportunity to thanks Dr. Sambo so much and my lovely collage who directed me to Dr. Sambo if you have any problem or predicament that is worse or exactly like this you have been into, i plead you to contact Dr. Sambo Dr. Sambo E-MAIL: Dr. Sambo Whats,App.+2348145810121
