With market capitalization of just Rs. 20 crores at CMP of Rs. 24, the scrip appears highly underpriced, especially when one considers the highly technical nature of its operations, highest quality of its products and the leader status in the domestic market.

With capacity getting doubled from next year, EPS will take a quantum jump to RS. 10+ and share price should touch RS. 75 level in a year time .

Buy is recommended with atleast one year HOLD  to see a price of Rs. 75

    thanks for the info..but, since this is an export oriented company, did u take into account the fall in earnings due to rupee appreciation while calculating the expected EPS?


  2. Hi Durga,
    Its exports are price elastic,so do not worry on Rupee appreciation front.In US even the price of milk,paper and many consumables is rising. So Just Relax.

    Dear Sir,

    Indian Toners has moved up recently and again came back below 30. I have a feeling that the share price is all set to take off in a good market. What do you suggest now ? Their new plant in Uttranchal is also in full steam though I didn’t see that adding significant revenue in the quarterly results published in June’09
