..Tracking the Economy

"The sunshine of life is made up of very little beams that are bright all the time. To give up something, when giving up will prevent unhappiness; to yield, when persisting will chafe and fret others; to go a little around, rather than come against another; to take an ill look or a cross word quietly, rather than resent or return it -- these are the ways in which clouds and storms are kept off, and a pleasant and steady sunshine secured." - John Aikin

Jai Corporation A Mystical Stock???

What will you do if a person comes to you and tells you that he will make your money grow 57 times in a year (5700% return)??? Youll surely call him mad; you think that its impossible. However a company named Jai Corporation has done this in a year. From Rs. 355 on 13 Oct 2006 the price has moved to Rs.20540 (1027*20) on Oct. 12 2007. Now how can a share price do that especially one with a circuit breaker of 5%? Jai Corporation Ltd. was incorporated in 1985 and started its business with manufacturing of steel, plastic and spinning yarn. However, now its business is well diversified in to new areas of infrastructural development, SEZ, real estate and venture capital. The financials of the company show a growth rate of 59% in its turnover however the net profit of the company has grown more than 9 times over the last one year. The company relies on its traditional businesses for operational stability and smooth cash flows and banks on its infrastructure business to capture the explosive growth of the economy, which also reflects in its segmental revenues where in the major portion of its revenue comes from its infrastructural projects. Currently the major projects that company is handling are development of Mumbai SEZ and Navi-Mumbai SEZ which it is developing in collaboration with Reliance Group. With its current expansion plans in progress it seems that the company still has much greener pastures ahead of it. This example clearly shows that there are adequate opportunities in the stock market to make big money, all it requires is the right stock selection.
