Trailing 12 month EPS is back in growth mode - over 38% this quarter, and looking strong.

Mint says that the Sintex stock, which has fallen about 22% in a month, has been impacted by a slowdown in govt. orders. They have three lines of business - textiles, building material like in pre-fab housing/monolithic structures, and custom moulding with all three showing a reasonable rise. And we know it largely for the big black water tanks you see on rooftops!

I like this stock for the understated scale - they're into telecom shelters, moulds for cars, pre-fab housing, textiles, etc., and have touched the 1,000 cr. per quarter revenue. Additionally, they acquire on a regular basis, and don't have crazy amounts of debt (just 30 cr. a quarter as interest). It's a momentum play though, and it moves in a volatile way.

There is a lot of activity in terms of promoter pledging and unpledging of shares, though I wouldn't call it a major concern. Shareholding Pattern:

  • Promoters: 35% - they've upped their stake 1% or so in Dec.
  • FIIs: 35%
  • Mutual Funds and Insurance: 11%
  • Public: 19%

Technically the stock is weak, having lost so much recently.

Disclosure: I hold this stock, stop loss of about 150.
