It has seven manufacturing unit in India in which 6 are located in states of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh and one in Maharastra. The clientele of the Company includes Blue Star, Carrier, Mahindra etc.
I have shared long term price performance chart of the Company below.As per Dow theory of technical analysis price performance over a period of time reflects Company state.
GeeCee Ventures Stock Performance
The stock performance shows decline from year 2006 till year 2015. The decline was slow and steady due to Specialty chemical business sell off and Company trying to diversify its operations into different business areas.
The stock gives decent dividend of more than 1% at current market price. Despite business sell off and challenges it has given positive returns to investors though the long term return does not beat the fixed investment options one has.
GeeCee Ventures My Opinion
GeeCee Ventures is a Conglomerate Company. It is in multiple business operations. The Company has cash from selling its specialty chemical business. It is trying to deploy that cash in wide range of industries like Real Estate, Wind Power. The rest of the money is deployed into various investments which Company claims to be less risky.
Wind Power is in renewable sector and offers growth opportunity. The land banks are in state of Maharastra. Now for investors it is better to invest into Companies which have growth potential and has defined business focus which it can grow over the years.
But the Company was not able to deploy cash into any fixed business opportunity. It is trying hard to finalize one business area for growth and future. One thing I like about it. Having sold the assets it has survived and has given positive returns to investors. This shows management honesty and focus on reviving the business.
But as of now I am not planning to invest in this Company or track this Company. I am already invested into Finance sector and will not be investing into other companies in this sector as it will increase the exposure.
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.
