Thirumalai Chemicals Ltd is a Chemicals Company. Chemicals is very vast sector. There are too many companies each preparing different set of products. Companies who have unique product catering growth sectors having demand for those products are performing better than others.
If you want to invest in Chemicals sector then you should analyze how the chemicals are used and what is demand of them in different industries. If you have evaluated this correctly then you can easily spot the Company to invest in. There are many good Companies in this sector which have performed well over the years.
This stock claims to be largest producer of some compounds (4 to be precise). I have provided some detail about these Compounds. You can explore them in details before making a decision about it. Also it is better to wait now as Company may enter into long consolidation mode before making next move.
I am invested in Chemicals sector and have decent exposure. I am not considering this Company as of now.
