Uflex Ltd Stock Performance
The stock has fluctuating growth over the years. It does not have secular growth or incremental growth. The fast growth and quick down slope near 2008 is because of global crisis. But the same thing happened in year 2011 and again in year 2017.
The prices have steady slow decline for extended period of time in year 2008 and 2011 time frame and again in year 2017 period. Most of the times stock corrected more than 50% of the peak price. So investors should be cautious while adding this stock in the portfolio. If they have added at right time then they have made money else it may test their patience.
Uflex Ltd My Opinion
Uflex Ltd is a Packaging Company. The Company has good global exposure and is a multinational Company with manufacturing facility in India and other countries. Packaging as a sector will have slow and steady growth in future as well.
Everything we consume today is packed. The trend of packed food items and other consumable is increasing with time. This trend and increased consumption with growth in population and economy will give growth to packaging sector (be it industrial or consumer products).
The nature of packaging will depend on Environment friendly (growing trend and concern) and Cost effective along with health concerns if any. The Company which can tap on future trends and provide the solution will be market leader.
Companies already in good position or market leader position will be the ones who will have advantage in tapping the potential. I have not yet invested in this sector but will be doing so in near future. Many top investors have put money in Packaging sector as it is future proof sector.
