Ruchira paper Stock Performance
The stock got listed in year 2006 at price 22 INR. After some IPO cooling off period stock started to have positive movement but then was impacted by global crisis. It has bad run from year 2009 to year 2012 making new lows in the process.
Since then the stock has recovered and slowly started to have positive movement quarter by quarter and year by year. The bull run also helped it cross 200 mark. This was excellent time for investors as they made huge money in short span of time.
The Company also pays healthy dividend of more than 2% at current market price. So investors who have invested in period 2013 are sitting at 10 times profit and earning 20% dividend which is excellent by any standard.
Ruchira paper My Opinion
Ruchira paper is a Paper Company. The Company has two separate division one is for Writing and Printing paper and second one is Kraft paper. Writing and Printing paper is business to consumer. Kraft paper is business to business.
As of now there is growing demand of Kraft paper as well as Writing and printing paper. But Government is also looking ways to curb paper usage. Like the initiative for Digital tickets and all are one way to minimize paper usage.
Sectors like Education will continue to have paper demand. Though digitalization is impacting paper usage in those areas but is mostly restricted to Exams only. It will take considerable amount of time till Digitalization impacts paper usage in Schools. With growing focus on education and rising population the demand for papers will go up only.
Paper as a sector will continue to have demand in near future specially the FMCG sector of packaging and education sector. There will be some impact of digitalization on paper usage but not on these two sectors.
