2.Dynamic Linkages among Macroeconomic Factors and Returns on the Indian Real Estate Sector (2010) by Vijay Kumar Vishwakarma & Joseph J. French

Overall results indicate the increasing importance of macroeconomic variables in influencing and forecasting the future evolution of the Indian real estate market. For the period of 1996-2000 macroeconomic variables explain 10% of the variations in Indias real estate market, this contribution increases to almost 23% for the period of 2000- 2007. These findings are positive for the continued development of financial sector and we anticipate that the connection between the real estate market and macro variables will increase as the Indian market develops.

Data Analysis And Interpretation

1.Current ratio:An indication of a company's ability to meet short-term debt obligations; the higher the ratio, the more liquid the company is. Current ratio is equal to current assets divided by current liabilities. If the current assets of a company are more than twice the current liabilities, then that company is generally considered to have good short-term financial strength. If current liablities exceed current assets, then the company may have problems meeting its short-term obligations.

DB Corp. 2.0639


Interpretation: Ratio stands between the range of 1.5 to 3 which indicates that Company has the good shortterm financial strength.

2. Quick Ratio:

The quick ratio is a measure of how well a company can meet its short-term financial liabilities. Also known as the acid-test ratio. An ideal quick ratio is said to be 1:1. If it is more, it is considered to be better. This ratio is a better test of short-term financial position of the company.

DB Corp. 1.6593

Jaypee 1.38 .


The Ratio is greater than 1:1 which indicates the high liquidity of Company

3. Cash Ratio: Cash ratio is the ratio of cash and cash equivalents of a company to its current liabilities. It is an extreme liquidity ratio since only cash and cash equivalents are compared with the current liabilities. It measures the ability of a business to repay its current liabilities by only using its cash and cash equivalents and nothing else. DB Corp. 0.8816 Jaypee. 0.098

Interpretation: Ratio shows that DB is strong in cash liquidity as compare to jaypee.

DB Corp. -569.22

Jaypee -1241023


Investors will benefit greatly if they invest in companies where the stock prices are no more than 67% of their NCAV per share.

5. Market to Book: Market/book ratio is a way of measuring the relative value of a company compared to its stock price or market value. Market/book ratio is a useful way of measuring your companys performance and making quick comparisons with competitors.

The gross margin of Jaypee is higher than the DB, which helps to control its production cost. The enterprise value of Jaypee is much higher than DB Corp. which has lesser value.. Both the companies are performing well in the market however on the basis of the analysis we can conclude that Jaypee, a mature real estate company is not performing as expected while DB, on the other hand, is a promising company having good faith from the investors as well as performing well in the market. At the last we conclude by saying that both the companies are

expanding their branches overall and coming up with new infrastructure, ideas and technology to sustain in this competitive world.
