Apcotex Industry My Opinion
I would like to disclose that I am invested in Apcotex industries as of now. Ihave reviewed this company here because it is present in the portfolio of Vijay Kedia.
The company meets all the points I am looking for investment. It has good pedigree management in form of Atul Choksey. It is operating in niche segment of Synthetic rubber and Synthetic latex.
In this segment it has monopoly in India and there are not too many listed players in India. The demand of rubber and latex will increase with time. I am playing for transformation of India from developing nation to developed nation.
India imports the synthetic rubber and synthetic latex to fulfill its requirement. The company has the opportunity to produce and cater the home market.
Based on above basic principles of Fundamental investing I have invested in this company and all track the company for any news. If you are interested in this company then you should do your own analysis on top of what I have shared above. That will help you understand the company better before making a decision.
