Titan has every thing going for it from investor point of view. It is operating in Luxury Goods items which will perform well in future. The expending power of Middle class will increase with growing economy of India. This will propel demand of items catered by Titan.
Recently the problems in companies of Jewellery sector will benefit Titan. Tata Group Companies are seen as standard for transparency and management. So people will prefer the Tanishq brand over the other company brands.
Rakesh Jhunjhunwala has also invested in this company. In fact it is one of the three Crown Jewels of his portfolio. It is the largest company operating in Jems and Jewellery , Watches segment in India. This monopoly will help it in future as well.
I would recommend tracking this company and follow it closely. It is in my own watch list as well and willing to monitor it closely.
Every one wants a good company operating it growth sector with proven management. These are qualities of a good company poised for Growth. Titan has all the boxes ticked. It has performed well in past which shows the potential of the company.
