Stock Recommendation: An attractive earnings compounder

For investors seeking to play the agri-theme in India, the fertiliser industry must surely rank as the least attractive, with the government controlling selling prices of the end-product at artificially low levels (even in ‘decontrolled’ fertilisers), production losses met by Central subsidies, high import dependence for raw materials and the vagaries of the monsoon deciding sales.

What the charts predict for 2021

The year 2020 will go down as a historical one for the stock markets for more reasons than one. If COVID-19-triggered crash in March 2020 was dramatic, the subsequent rise was even more remarkable. If someone had predicted at end of March 2020 that the frontline stock indices would close at lifetime highs by December 2020, I am sure there would not have been too many takers for it.

2020 – How our Prime Funds performed

For us here, at PrimeInvestor, it’s time to evaluate ourselves and see how we did and how our recommendations fared. And the primary yardstick we use to do so is to see how our Prime Funds performed, with respect to benchmarks and category averages.
In the stock market, even as the year closed out with gains, it is better classified as an abnormal year driven by liquidity. Such markets can be deceptive. It is best not to draw long-term lessons from this year! In the debt market, we saw policy rates crash below earlier floors. Returns soared for some categories, other funds fell to credit risks.
