Metal Coatings (India) Ltd. Stock Performance
In above long term chart if you exclude some months in year 2009 and 2 year period between 2016 to 2018 you will see almost straight line with minor fluctuations.
In past 15 years barring the time period mentioned above the stock traded near 20 INR. So you can take 20 as long term very sound support level. It tells that Company is good bet if it trades near this price point.
Other interesting point is that Company pays 4% or more dividend at current market price which is excellent by any measures. Over the 16 years it has given 5 times return as well. What I liked most is that Company maintained 20 mark as very stable support.
Metal Coatings (India) Ltd. My Opinion
Metal Coatings India limited is in Steel sector. The product of the Company is Business to Business. The end product serves Industries like Automobile and Electrical Equipment (Power).
Company itself states that penetration in Rural India is low for White Goods. The demand of White Goods in Rural sector will drive sales for the Company. Also Auto sector growth will also help the Company.
I personally do not like Business to Business Companies (B2B) if there is no USP involved. The products created are not unique in nature. The products can be viewed as Steel Products. I do not see major growth demand of these items in future. There are big Steel Companies present which may take advantage in any growth demand.
I will not track the Company as it does not fit my criteria of Company selection.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.
