D. Dont Get Tempted With Short Term Rally, Think Long-Term
Indian stock markets are volatile. Any simple rumor or news can drive prices of stocks or group of stocks though they are not fundamentally strong. Being a smart investor, the smartest decision would be not to relying on such short term rallies and down trends. Always have the patience to hold the invested stock. The history of the markets also suggests one who can hold the stock for the long run he is expected to reap higher profits. Even the famous investor Warren Buffet said that Only buy something that youd be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.
4. When It's Raining Gold, Reach For A Bucket, Not A Thimble
This iconic quote of Warren Buffett holds the wisdom of value investment. You will fail to make it big even if you invest in good stocks. That's true! Let's illustrate this point with an example. If you invest in Asian Paints stock at this point when it's trading at 934.00 and if it goes on to hit 1000.00 in six months you will only gain 66.00 on each share. But had you invested in the same stock when it was trading at 400-500.00 you would have got real bang for your money when it hits the thousand rupee mark. The point is - it's important to buy the right stock at the right time. And when the right time comes to reach for a bucket and not a thimble.
5. Ask The Expert
It is impossible to do everything on your own.

Currently, new products have covered 1,000+ touch points(around 30% of Cables &Wires channel) and will focus more on improving the supply chain.

Company Name- JK Papers Ltd.
India paper market is calculated to grow with a CAGR of more than 10% in value terms during review period starting from 2011-12 to 2016-17 and the market is anticipated to reach more than Rs.75,000 crores at the end of the forecasted year 2022-23. Paperboard & industrial packaging paper, paper stationery, newspaper print, and specialty paper altogether creates the overall paper market. As the paper industry of India is becoming more competitive by adding improvements of key ports, roads & railways and communication facilities, revision of forest policy is required for wood-based paper industry so that plantation can be raised by industry, cooperatives of farmers and state government.
- Capacity Expansion to drive volume
As operating at full capacity, the management plans to increase capacity to achieve meaningful volume growth. It announced a brownfield investment of Rs.1,450 crores for setting up additional packaging board capacity of 1.5lakhMT. Though commercialization of new capacity addition is likely to take more than 24-30 months, acquisition of Sirpur Paper Mills is a near term positive. So from 4.5 lakh tons capacity, Sirpur acquisition will make up capacity to 6-lakhs. Therefore, in two years time, capacity will move up from 4.55-lakh to 7.5-lakh tons and will become the number two paper company in the country.
- Acquisition story:
JK Paper acquired Telangana-based Sirpur Paper Mill at ` 371cr through NCLT insolvency process. This consists of a cash payment of `166cr and issue of equity shares of `43cr and preference shares of `162 cr. Also, would help increase capacity at a total investment of around ` 671 cr, including incremental capex towards modernization. The capex, for both the planned organic and inorganic expansion, would lead to an increase in leverage, especially over FY20-21. However, the staggered nature of the capex, with favorable industry fundamentals, mitigates the risk to some extent.
- Key Financial Highlights
The company generated a nearly two-fold jump in its standalone net profit to `109.57cr mainly driven by volume growth and sales realization. It had posted a net profit of `56.63cr. Total income rose 17.47% to `795.46cr as against `677.11 cr in the same period previous fiscal. Margin improved further to 26.1% in Q2 (FY18 21%) on the back of improving realizations, reducing raw material costs and improving operating efficiency. During the quarter, JK Paper took possession of the Sirpur Paper Mills and refurbishment and overhaul of plant and machinery is underway. Revenue remained flat on a sequential basis as production was impacted due to plant shutdown in Rayagada, Odisha following a strike by workers.
Volume growth, higher realizations coupled with improved operating parameters and abridged finance cost resulted in uptick in profitability for the quarter. Having current capacity at 4.55lakh tones, JK paper is all set to commence the additional capacity of 1.38 lakh tones from Sirpur plant in Telangana, to help venture into the color paper segment, the very first time by April 2019. Likewise, will further increase its capacity by adding 1.5 lakh tonnes in the next two years from Gujarat plant stemmed to focus on the packaging board vertical. Both would help to grow revenues at 15% CAGR over the next 5 years.
