Visaka Industries Limited Stock Performance
The long term price chart for this stock is very interesting. If you closely observe till year 2016 the stock has performed well but that does not stand it out from crowd. It is only after year 2016 the stock had massive price performance which pulled it towards 1,000 mark (800 above to be precise) from below 200 mark.
It has corrected as well from the tops as well. At current market price the dividend yield is more than 1.5% which is excellent by any standard. Investors have made money in this counter.On an absolute basis it has given twenty times return with majority coming in last couple of years.
Visaka Industries Limited My Opinion
Visaka Industries Limited is a Building materials Company. Though it has Yarns division as well which falls under Textile sector. However the majority of products cater building materials sector only. The primary product from Company is fibre cement sheet.
Building material sector will see decent growth in coming years. There are lot of construction work required in India. Booming and Developing Economies have Infrastructure and housing demand. India still has large population to take care of. So this sector will continue to thrive in near future as well.
I am very much interested in Solar Roof concept of the Company. Government is paying too much emphasis on Solar Energy. It is renewal form of Energy and will help cut in Oil import bills.
However you should evaluate how effective or easy is to use Solar roof in individual house or building. That would be major driver in performance of the Company.As of now I am invested in one Building Material sector Company.
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.
