Supremre Petro...cmp 27.55

I have recomending fundamentally sound stocks time and again here.
I have already recomended Supreme Petro .

I will be writing on Supreme Petro today which is a Taparia Gr co with the leader in Supreme Ind.
The earning has been increasing steadily for Supreme Petro and is paying div regularly.

The shot in the arm came when it signed an MOU with Ultrabatch s.r.l.Italy.....

Just read the MOU and I think everyone would love to buy this Co.
Actually I was surprised why there was no query on Supreme Petro?That also says the lack of due diligence from readers.
Supreme Petro comes from a great promoters and gr group.Co has buy back shares from open market as well as open offer.This also shows that Promoters are bullish on future of the co..

First read about what Supreme Petro stands for:

Supreme Petrochem Ltd (SPL), owns and operates a state-of-the art Polystyrene facility, with an installed capacity of 2,72,000 TPA located at Nagothane in Raigad District, about 100 Kms south-east of Mumbai city. The facility also includes a world class colouring and compounding facility with an installed capacity of 17000 TPA.

The Plant is based on technology from the erstwhile Huntsman Chemical Corporation (Now NOVA Chemicals) USA with basic engineering by ABB Lummus Crest, USA.
SPL is the leader in Polystyrene business in the Indian market place with a share of more than 50%. SPL is also the largest exporter of PS from India, exporting to over 80 countries around the globe. Currently SPL's exports are over 100,000 Tons/Year.

To strengthen the competitive position further, the company is keenly pursuing it's minor port project in district Raigad, Maharashtra to handle the import of it's raw materials.

My Comments:
I have already recomended Poddar Pigments which claims to the first to have master batches in various field.No one seems to have given a hard look at Poddar Pigments....


  1. Dear Rajeev,

    I have gone through couple of announcements and what i found was the company bought back only 15 lakh shares against its intended quantity of 75 lakh shares.Why do you think the company didnot buy 75 lakh shares even when it was available at 10 rupees or so?

  2. Sri,
    If they tried to buy at 10 from market it could have reacted and would have gone up at that time...

  3. Hi Rajeev, again an excellent pick from you. All things are well but just for discussion i would like to raise few points.
    -Though No.1 player in its category and with so many accreditations, the last 5 yrs net profit is very haphazard,not consistent
    -Relatively high debt, but good think is in last 5 yrs its not increasing
    -In a very competitive industry
    -OPM,ROCE & RONW are average
    -CMP above BV.

    I know you have the ability to pick multi-baggers, but for discussion purpose i am writing these points.
    Hope you dont mind.
    With Regards,

  4. Vikas,
    What u have written is nice and I don't mind as well.
    But I will say here that what u have written is analyst mind at work and the parametres u wrote I never see.
    I am seeing the growth that would be coming and how the management is.U didn't seee what is highlighted in RED and BLUE letters...if you will try to find negatives you will find it in L&T as well that it is 2 paidup,or Infosys ,promoters holding is too small then how one can invest etc beware of analytical mind.....

  5. Hi Rajeev,
    its like you read my mind. I was certainly thinking about whether to increase my stake in Infosys.And you wont believe I stopped because I thought the promotor's stake is quite less, only 16%.
    What you say is absolutely correct. I am thinking like analysts who only try to find negative points in the scrips and ignore future potential.
    Will try to develop myself to think like you!
    With Regards,

  6. Is kwality dairy down to 132? How if so Can you please explain this new phenomenon.

  7. Sandeep,

    It got splitted up from FV10 to FV1

    Example: If a 100Rs share of FV10 split up to FV1, then its price will become 1Rs


  8. Hello Rajeevji, what price we should be looking for supreme petro, 1 yr or 2 yrs down the line? Recently was tracking Parekh Aluminex, its looking good, suddenly with in a weeks time has gone up considerably.

  9. Dhiraj,
    I usually do not give targets.
    Parekh Aluminex is my favourite stock which I have been recomending time and again along with India Glycols,PSL Ltd, Apar Ind etc......
