The seven-part of Series “Once a darling, now an evil”. This series is based on the companies which were once upon a time darling of the market and now, it has wiped out the majority of all those gains. I am trying to put some of the number-crunching facts by which we have identified ongoing issues in the companies and have saved our wealth.
I am starting this part with one of the company is trading in a broad range of steel products which has an all-time high price of ~Rs.307 in 2011 and now last traded price at Rs.0.36.
On the first instance this company having huge sales and profit growth. This creates a temptation to buy with missing out of the opportunity.
Also, when we look at the debtor days then….
But don’t forget to look cash flow statement….
The company continuously having a negative CFO.
Don’t just get blinded with growth but focus on cash which is real.
