Kukkuji in his previous interview had spoken about some low risk high yielding investment ideas on small capitalization stocks). In today’s interview he provides updates on the same recommendations ( viz: Balaji Amines, Hind Rectifiers and NESCO).

In addition he outlines his Four Principles of Stock Selection which are a must see for investors as there is a lot of learning to be derived from this video.  A brief write up on the contents of the interview is included for the benefit of those who have difficulty with viewing videos.

In the interview he recommend’s booking partial profit in Balaji Amines and converting those profits into Hind Rectifiers and NESCO. Hind Rectifiers is expected to be a big beneficiary of the Railway modernization plans. Nesco which has been consolidating for a long time is his favourite pick and recommends to hold onto the stock.

His Four Principles of Stock picking are as follows

  1. Strong fundamentals are the most important
  2. Stock should have a good dividend paying track record and if the dividend yield is attractive it is an added bonus.
  3. The ROCE of the stock should be greater than 20-25% and he finds that when markets turn these stocks have a high propensity of providing unusually high returns.
  4. Replacement cost is another important criteria. If the replacement cost is high then this along with good dividend yield and book value which is at a discount to market price is a lethal combinations.

As per his opinion the stock that meets the Four Principle of Stock Selection  criteria is PTC (India) Financial Services Ltd.  At CMP of Rs 16 the stock is an attractive low risk high return investment opportunity. The attractive criteria for the stock are as follows

  • No NPAs
  • FY12 EPS of Rs 2.75 per share
  • Q1FY13 disbursals are around Rs 458 crores which is exceptional considering that during the entire FY12 the disbursals were ~ Rs 658 crore. Full year FY13 , PTC Financials expects to do about RS 1600 crore of disbursals.
  • It has current commitment for Rs 7,700 crore of disbursals
  • The NIM is also very strong at ~9%.
  • Maiden dividend possibility is an added attraction.
