Now lets look at performance of this company over the years.As per Dow theory of technical analysis price performance over a period of time reflects Company state.
Celestial Biolabs Ltd. Stock Performance
The Company got listed in year 2007 at 70 INR mark. This was not good time to get listed due to Global Crisis of year 2008. It moved below 20 mark during that global crisis and recovered to 40 odd levels.
It has given negative returns to investors over the last decade. It never touched and remained above IPO price during all these years. During 2015 it touched that point but had free fall after that.
The Company is trading at all time low of less than 10. Over the years it has destructed wealth of investors. From 70 odd levels in IPO it slowly and surely declined to less than 10 nowadays.
Celestial Biolabs Ltd. My Opinion
Celestial Bio Labs is in Pharma sector. Main focus of the Company is Ayurvedic medicine formulations along with other product areas as mentioned above. Pharma sector has seen some big multi bagger companies over the years.
Past is often reflection of future. The company has struggled since IPO days. The decline in prices were gradual because of under performance over the years.Ayurvedic medicine landscape is dominated by Dabur, Baidyanath and so companies. So it will take giant steps from smaller lesser known brands to make an impact.
The product catalog of company looks promising. They have wide range of products and they are doing research to launch new ones as well. But the promise of products is not reflected in performance. You should perhaps wait for realization of profit and then make decision about the Company.
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.
