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.
Kaya Limited Stock Performance
It is newly listed stock on stock exchanges. It got listed during the recent bull run phase which started from year 2014. The stock got listed at around 1,450 mark. But soon after listing it started moving downhill and touched price point of 700 that is 50% discount from listing price in year 2016 end.
The stock has not touched listing price heights in this 3 year period. It is now trading near the lows it made in year 2016. So for IPO investors it has not been a good investment as of now. But short term price chart should not be used to pass on judgement for any stock.
Kaya Limited My Opinion
Kaya Limited is a Health Services Company. It deals with products and Services both. As of now it caters mainly Skin and Hair related problems. Though it has some products for Eye Care and generic Bath products.
It is targeting the upper middle class and higher income groups with services and products. Most of the products are highly priced. So it is trying to cash in Status symbol mentality of Upper middle and high income group mass.
The services is also pricey if you consider Dermatologist fees in most part of India. One thing I liked about Company is presence across India with 100 clinics in 27 cities. It also has international presence which would help the Company as well. Currently it targets only middle east and it is yet to be seen if it has plans to target other regions as well.
On management front Kaya has strong proven one. Marico is parent of Kaya and in year 2013 Kaya was de merged from Marico. So it has strong transparent and proven Parent. The Company can if associated brand image with its services and products then it may get re-rated in future.
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.
