Prima Plastics Ltd. My Opinion
Prima Plastics is in Plastics sector.Plastics is a growth sector. If you look around wooden and metal household items (furniture) are getting replaced with their plastic counter parts. Plastics are durable light and cheaper than wooden and metal alternatives.
Along with home furniture it creates other products as mentioned above. This being Growth sector is also testified by the fact the ace investor Subramanian P has more than one Company in his portfolio from this space.
Plastic sector has concern area as well. With growth in Environment protection initiatives and recycling the Company will get benefited. The natural resources are limited so recycling of these are much needed nowadays.
I have not invested in core plastics sector like Companies which prepare plastic items. But I will definitely explore the possibilities. I have invested in one Plastic based Company and is not willing to increase the exposure in this segment.
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.
