Every Rs 100 Invested in Titan in 2002 Multiplied 330 Times by 2019

Co-head of Research, Tanushree Banerjee believes the opportunities in the Rebirth of India are not only more profitable than the ones in 2002 but the gains could come faster too.

Here's what she wrote in a recent edition of The 5 Minute WrapUp...

  • Titan entered the branded jewellery market in 1996.

    The retailer faced the challenge of breaching a well-entrenched network of family jewellers. The relationship between customer and family jewellers went back to a couple of generations.

    The habit of buying from the family jeweller was strong and the trust was intrinsic. One also had the option of returning old jewellery to the family jeweler.

    Through its jewellery brand, Tanishq, Titan broke down the early entry barriers in unorganized jewellery retailing. It consolidated its lead as very few national or branded players threw their hats in the ring.

She is on the hunt for the next set of Titan, HDFC Bank, Bajaj Finance, Asian Paints-like companies. These will be the companies that would catalyze the transformation she calls the Rebirth of India.

Moving on to news from the aviation space, market participants are tracking InterGlobe Aviation (Indigo) share price and SpiceJet share price.

Shares of the companies fell up to 5% yesterday following a spike in crude oil prices overseas. Reports state that a rally in crude oil prices may increase air turbine fuel (ATF) cost for domestic airlines.

In other news, lenders to the debt-laden Jet Airways on Monday, made a presentation to the South American conglomerate Synergy Group, which has reportedly emerged as sole potential buyer of the airline.

Jet Airways had earlier received expressions of interest (EoIs) from energy baron Anil Agarwal's family trust-backed Volcan Investments, Russian Fund Treasury RA Partners and the Panama-based Avantulo Group.

However, Volcan opted out of the race a day after publicly announcing its interest in the carrier.

Reports state that Jet owes over Rs 85 billion, excluding interest and other penal charges to lenders led by State Bank of India (SBI).

The lenders consortium had sent the airline to the NCLT in the month of June as they could not find a buyer. Following this, the bankruptcy tribunal appointed Ashish Chhawchharia of Grant Thornton as the resolution professional to manage the affairs of the crippled airline.

Jet Airways has liabilities over Rs 360 billion, including over Rs 100 billion in vendor dues, Rs 85 billion along with interest owed to lenders, over Rs 30 billion in salary dues, and more than Rs 135 billion in accumulated losses over the past three years.

Jet Airways share price is presently trading down by 0.8%.
