If You Could Look Beyond Elections, Here's a Rebound Small Cap Stock to Catch Hold Of

Almost four decades ago, the investing legend Warren Buffett gave an important piece of advice that is relevant even today... Put simply...

'Stay away from turnaround plays'.

In his words:

Both our operating and investment experience cause us to conclude that turnarounds seldom turn, and that the same energies and talent are much better employed in a good business purchased at a fair price than in a poor business purchased at a bargain price.

But then, another wise thinker, Mr John Maynard Keynes is quoted as saying:

  • When facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?

Well, we respect Mr Buffett. But here, we agree with Keynes.

Take the case of Symphony Ltd.

This well-known air cooler company, with a market share of over 50% among organised players, was once a failure story.

Sometimes the Right Thing to do is Turn Around

After a stellar run for the first few years, around two decades ago, the company had a near brush with bankruptcy. What led to its fall was biting off more than it could chew.

To Readers Who Plan on Quitting Work Someday…

From a single product company - air coolers - it diversified into geysers, water purifiers, washing machines and exhaust fans. It could not face the competition from the cheaper products in the market, and filed for bankruptcy in 2001-02.

Now, had you taken Mr Buffett's advice on face value and written an obituary for Symphony Ltd, you would be sitting on an opportunity loss of 1,99,014%.

Yes, that's the returns the stock has offered in the last two decades. Rs 1,000 invested in the stock in 2001 would be a pretty sum of Rs 20 lacs.

What catapulted this penny stock (priced at less than Rs 1 per share in 2001-02) to a multibagger was a focused management. Mr Achal Bakeri, the owner operator, was hell bent to revive the company and claim back the glory.

Over the next five years, he restructured the business, continuing just with coolers and geysers. By 2007, the company had turned debt free. And profitable.

But you are being selective - I can almost hear you say.

Well, that's true.

Such stories are rare. And are often missed due to past baggage.

A shrewd investor is one who can look beyond the history, assess the future and spot such rare plays.

The 'Profit Accelerator' That Helped Wipro Multiply 2,000 Times Since 1991

Do you know what a 'profit accelerator' is?

It is one of 3 traits that the most profitable stocks have…

For instance, back in 1991 Wipro underwent a huge transformation…

This was the 'profit accelerator' the company needed.

Over the next 3 decades, the stock price of Wipro multiplied over 2,000 times.

Amazing, isn't it?

If you're wondering what exactly a 'profit accelerator' is, you'll find a full explanation of that and the other 2 traits that make a 100X potential stock, in this note.

My latest Hidden Treasure recommendation is one such story I believe. Existing subscribers can access the report here.

From a distressed firm, this company is now almost debt free (net debt to equity nearing zero). Over the last five years, the net losses in the company's books have given way to net profit margins in double digits.

But this could just be the beginning to a promising future.

A market leader in a niche segment, this company is integrating its operations across the value chain - from being raw material producer to final goods supplier. What more, the promoter, a first-generation entrepreneur, is keen on shifting from a B2B (business to business) towards B2C (business to consumer) model. Bypassing intermediaries is likely to boost its profits. Further, a solid presence across the value chain will make the business stable.

Amid the market correction, this stock has corrected by over 35% from its 52 week highs and offers a perfect opportunity to take the plunge.

If you could look beyond elections and survive the volatility that the markets will likely witness over next few weeks, the stock is a great rebound candidate.

By the way, the initial signs of rebound are already visible. Smallcap index is up 15% from the lows in February 2019.

So, make sure you don't get late to catch the bus. Afterall, this could be once in a decade opportunity to make money in smallcaps.
