NIIT Limited Stock Performance
The stock has mixed performance over the years. It has still not crossed the top made in year 2008 just before global crisis. The top was around 150 mark and till date it is trading near 100 mark only. So for last decade Company has not meet the previous high.
But it is good to see Company is consolidating near 100 mark for quite so long. For last two three years it is trading near 100 mark with highest point being just above 100.The global crisis and year from 2010 and 2013 were worst for the Stock as it continued to make new lows.
NIIT Limited My Opinion
NIIT Limited is a Education and Trainings Company. It was predominantly IT training Company at the start. This was reflected in share price chart as well. Company performed well when IT was the buzz word and then started declining as the buzz died off.
It has now diversified the operations. It has two major verticals IT and BFSI. These two sectors are mainstay. Any slow down in job creation in these two sectors will have adverse impact on Growth of the Company. Most of the students enroll in courses of these Companies for job opportunity. So job in the sectors it targets is very important for growth of the Company.
Company has also stated ERP package for School. It fact it is proving complete solution for Schools starting with training to school management software. This is another growth area for the Company. It is interesting to see adoption of ERP package and training facilities offered by the Company.
You can view it as a Business to Business Company as it caters the job demand in IT and BFSI sector. In operation front it is Business to Customer sector. There are few other training Companies but it has Pan India presence (along with international presence). The sector is evergreen as demand of courses for job requirement will be present.
The Company does have early mover advantage. I would like to see more courses from different industries being added. It would lessen dependency on IT sector. As of now I am not invested in this sector but am tracking this Company.
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.
