Chemfab Alkalis Ltd. Stock Performance
The long term chart provides exact picture of Company performance. It is recently listed on Stock exchanges (Apr 2017) to be precise. Since less than 1 year price chart is available it is difficult to judge it based on price performance alone.
It debuted around 225 mark and with time gone to 150 odd levels. So in last 9 months company has not performed on exchanges. You need to remember that these 9 months were not good for Stock exchanges. After good run for last 3 years Indices started cooling off.
So you should not judge the Company based on the price performance for these 9 months.
Chemfab Alkalis Ltd. My Opinion
Chemfab Alkalis Limited is in Chemical sector. This is new hot sector of the market. There are too many companies listed in this sector. Each company produces different compound and there are too many compounds to deal with.
So despite too many companies being listed on Exchanges you really need to see if any of the Company compete with product portfolio of Company you are selecting for investment.
I am impressed with one fact about the Company. It is pioneer in early adopting new technologies and successfully using them for production. This is hallmark of a good Company
I would like to see it getting bit old on exchanges. It is important to know the time price decline gets flatted out and there is time for turn around. Right now company is going down slowly which is not good sign for investors.
Personally I am invested in Chemical Sector and do not want to increase the exposure further. 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.
