EPS of the company is expected to be at Rs 44.31 and Rs 50.10 for the earnings of FY11E and FY12E respectively.

Earnings per share serve as an indicator of a company's profitability. The EPS of M&M was at peak during year 2008 how ever with the global melt down the company EPS went down as the purchasing power parity of people went down. With the revival of the market the EPS of M&M is also showing an upward trend. Automobile sector which as of now is growing at highly optimistic pace it is forecasted that this EPS will further go up and shareholder can have really good time. EPS measures theprofit available to the equity shareholders per share, that is, the amount that they can get on every share held.

Although a simple indicator to work out, the P/E is actually quite difficult to interpret. It can be extremely informative in some situations, while at other times it is next to meaningless. As a result, investors often misuse this term and place more value in the P/E than what is acceptable. A better interpretation of the P/E ratio is to see it as a reflection of the market's optimism concerning a firm's growth prospects. Although a high P/E ratio could mean that a stock is overvalued, there is no guarantee that it will come back down anytime soon. The P/E is one of those numbers that investors throw around with great influence as if it told the whole story/E gives you an idea of what the market is willing to pay for the company’s earnings. The higher the P/E the more the market is willing to pay for the company’s earnings. Some investors read a high P/E as an overpriced stock and that may be the case, on the other hand it can also indicate the market has high hopes for this stock’s future and has bid up the price. Taking this picture into

account if we look at M&M PE is ratio is quite good. so we can say that investors are quite confident in this company but we can be never sure .

One of the best and easiest ways to classify an overvalued stock is to compare the present market price of stock with its book value. One can say that Book value is the price of stock that company thinks must be paid by investors to own one of them. Any additional price paid by an investor (above book value) is a decision of investor with an expectation that the stock price has ability to rise in time to come. Ideally all stocks must e purchased at or below its book value. In case of Mahindra and Mahindra the stock price is much higher than the book value in 2006 the market price is 7 times more than book value and as of 2010 the market price is 5 times more than the book value of share. If we look at this trend it can be very lucrative for speculators to invest in this share , however for long term investors this will not be a good deal as the tendency of share will be to move towards its book value in long run and that will not be a profitable business for investors. 2008 Down Trend:-After sustaining growth in the first half of 2008-09 fiscal a severe slowdown in the October- December 2008 quarter, the segment witnessed a 7 per cent decline in volumes during October-December 2008.After a sustained net profit growth of 25-30 per cent in the five years to 2006-07, M&M saw a sharp deterioration in the profit picture in the first nine months of 2008-09, concentrated mainly in the December quarter. While revenues on a consolidated basis grew 13.2 per cent to Rs 21,652 crore, net profit after minority interest declined by 26 per cent to Rs 809.5 crore from Rs.1095 crore. M&M attributed the drastic fall to foreign exchange loss of Rs 182 crore and lower sales of utility vehicles and tractors. Sales of utility vehicles during the quarter fell 26 per cent to 29,184 units (39,282 units in last year’s quarter) while tractor sales were 15 per cent lower at 20,686 units (24,266 units).

Than there was steady fall in the index and in the mid 2006 reaches to years lowest point it again start booming and than year on year we saw a up and down movement in the index as lots of new players came in Indian market with foreign alliance but when 2008 came with global slowdown it brings the demand of automobile so low that index reaches to its lowest in past 5year . The majority of the company even shutdown their manufacturing units for more than a week, production came down because of less demand in the economy. Also no further launches were made in mid or late 2008 and deferred to next year. There was also fall in FDI’s in automobile Industry. But in the beginning of 2009 right from 1st quarter auto industry again start repossession and we saw a tremendous growth in auto industry which never seen before not in India but all over the world. The demand of 2 and 4 Wheelers start increasing speedily which also force auto industry to employ more workers to meet demand and within the 2nd quarter of FY2009-10 Auto index reaches to its highest ever crossed mark of 6000. And this growth of industry will be carry further as festive season still to come, so there is a lot of capacity to growth in this industry .
