ADF Foods limited Stock Performance
The stock has given 25 times return in last two decade. Some may argue that this is not at par with many stocks out there. But one should also understand it has not made you loose money. You have made money in this counter.
Other interesting point about above graph is that Stock has consolidated after good run but in long journey it has not under-performed for decent time frame. Investors may get frustrated with no returns whatsoever for extended period of time.
From year 2010 to 2016 that is six years it has consolidated close to 100 mark and then moved towards 300 mark. After that jump it is again in consolidation mode trading mostly in range of 200 and 300. The Stock gives good entry point 200 for now as it acts like Strong support.
ADF Foods limited My Opinion
ADF Foods limited is a Food Processing Company. It mainly does business in overseas market. The NRI willing to get taste of Indian food on foreign land are major customers of it along with foreign nationals who like have taste of Indian foods.
Recently Company has also focused on domestic market. I feel it made a huge mistake by not focusing on domestic market. May be Company thought the Indian cuisine market will not perform in domestic market. It has started with Soul brand solely dedicated to Indian market. The product is also available on eCommerce websites.
The products from the Company are mainly food supplements like Pickles and Chutneys. It sells wide range of Pickles under different brands and market. With growing number of NRI there will be demand of traditional Indian foods in overseas market.
Indian market is also shifting towards packaged foods. The pickles and chutneys are primarily unorganized sector and home made in India. With increasing working class and brand awareness will see growth in this sector as well.
I am tracking this Company for quite sometime. It looks in good sector which is poised to grow. It will be interesting to see how well it plays the domestic market along with Global market.
In case you are interested then you can track the company by adding it to your stock watch list. That way you can keep close eye on the Company.
