Delta Corp My Opinion
Delta Corporation limited operates in all together new niche as per Indian business landscape. Casinos is one very under penetrated area in India. There is lot of scope in this field. Still many consider this not as an entertainment. There is taboo associated with this field.
But with time and growing urban population this area will see growth and company can penetrate in new locations. Currently it is heavily concentrated in one location Goa only. The reason is simple. Goa attracts foreign and urban crowd the most.
The growth in this field and penetration in new areas will give boost to the company and same will get reflected in the share price. Since it is early starter in this area it will get the benefit.
This may be the rationale why Rakesh Jhunjhunwala has invested in this stock. People prefer to know the niche and monopoly company operating in sector of growth then this is one company you can put in your radar.
The online entertainment industry is also poised for growth so presence in Adda52 will boost the company revenue and it and in can also leverage its presence to explore more companies in this niche.
Delta Corp is an interesting company. It banks on fact that Indian will start loving the Casino culture. With growth in IT and other industry which increases interaction or movement of Indian to west may increase Casino popularity in India.
This will help company expand in new areas. Also foreign tourism will also make it popular. I am tracking this company and have added it to my stock watch list. I would also encourage you to go through portfolio of top investors because that will help you discover unknown companies.
