I G Petrochemicals Ltd Stock Performance
The Company got listed in year 2007 at price of 68. It was not good time to get listed due to global crisis next year. For next 7 years or so Company was in consolidation mode hovering around the sub 100 levels with little to low positive movement in stock prices.
These silent years made investors nervous. The IPO investors did not make any good money in the counter. Recent bull run and correction phase impacted stock prices considerably. It gave decent returns to investors touching close to 800 at one point and quickly died to 300 levels as well. The dividend yield at current market price is more than 1%.
I G Petrochemicals Ltd My Opinion
I G Petrochemicals Ltd is a Petrochemicals Company. The product manufactured by the Company is key component of PVC (Plastics Industry). So the growth in demand of PVC will benefit the Company fortunes.
Thirumalai Chemicals is direct competitor of this Company.Both of them have same product mix. So you should keep an eye on both these Companies if you are planning to make a decision.
Both the Companies are present in portfolio of Anil Kumar Goel. The growing demand of PAN will benefit these Companies. By investing in both he made sure demand is captured. One of the Company may outperform other in long run and by investing in both you are being covered.
As of now I am not invested in these Companies. There are global players also manufacturing the Compound. I have already invested in Chemicals sector and will explore if more investment in the sector is required.
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.
