Lahoti Overseas Ltd. Stock Performance
The lowest price point in above chart is approx 2 INR price after 2008 global crisis. From there the stock kept hovering round 10 INR mark for quite sometime. In fact for next 5 years it traded around 10 mark slowly rising above it till year 2016.
It is towards the later point it moved past 20 and touched the 30 mark. The stock does pay 1% dividend at current market price. It can be viewed as decent stock with fair enough returns in these years.At least it has not caused loss to investors.
Lahoti Overseas Ltd. My Opinion
Lahoti Overseas Limited is yet another Textiles stock. I personally does not like this sector. You may know this as I have mentioned it clearly in past. Most of the textiles companies have given meager returns or no returns in past decade. They have their own shares of problems.
If you observe long term price chart then Company has not performed bad. It has given healthy return to investors and clearly beaten Fixed deposits. So performance wise this is decent stock.
The overseas presence will help in export and thus increase the revenue. Company has shown some vision with Renewal energy initiatives to meet internal power demand thus lowering the run cost of factories.
As I do not track or invest in Textiles stock I will leave this counter as well. 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.
