Austin Engineering Company Ltd Stock Performance
The stock has not performed in last 12 years or so. The performance is limited and range bound. It shows no incremental positive growth over the years in results.After year 2006 stock is range bound in between 50 and 100.
Company witnessed most of the growth in 2002 to 2006 period. After that it is sorry story for investors. It has become kind of trading stock with lower (entry level price 50 INR) and exit level price close to 100 INR.
Austin Engineering Company Ltd My Opinion
Austin Engineering Company Ltd is a Bearing Company. Bearing is niche segment. There are very few Companies listed in this space on stock exchanges. The segment is dominated by Foreign players (Multi National Companies) in India as well as World.
There are three major players in this segment. Bearing is a kind of Business to Business segment. Bearing Companies cater other industries. The end products are mainly used in machines.
Machines are back bone of our civilization so there will be need of bearings. Until and unless some technological advances causes bearings to get replaced with some other stuff to reduce friction and facilitate motion. Till that time sector will continue to have demand and will grow with time.
The sector is good but stock has not given positive returns in last 12 years indicating it has challenges to better its performance over the years. I have not invested in this sector but am looking forward to it. Instead of opting to invest in small players it is better to invest in one of the major players globally.
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.
