  1. Hi Chandrakant Yechuri,

    Check out the time of equity dilution ( mid to end 2008) when the markets were sliding and there were no investors ..Still AVON CORP.could raise almost 3 times the paid up equity..The original promoters have already increased there stake by 2.5% during the last 3 months..This is on the increased capital base.On the old capital base it will be about 10%..The latest Quarter results prove that the investors were right.Note that the company also declared a dividend which is rare in the very first year and after diluting the equity 3 fold.
    I don’t see a downward risk of more than Rs. 3 while the upside is not known.Risk /reward ratio favours a strong buy…
