Which are the poison stocks in India right now?

As per Equitymaster's Stock Screener, here is a list of poison stocks in India right now...

These companies have been ranked as per their reported losses of latest financial year.

What is Poison Stocks?

Poison stocks are companies that are expensively valued, have weak balance sheets, high debt, and are frequently loss making.

How do you know if a stock is expensive?

One of the quickest ways to gauge whether a stock is expensive is to compare its valuation ratios to the rest of its industry or its historical average. If it is trading above these numbers, it is expensive.

What are the other important parameters to consider when looking at valuations?

One popular ratio, other than PE, is the Price to Book Value ratio (P/BV). This is particularly useful when evaluating banks and financial companies. You can access a list of the most attractive stocks based on P/BV here...

EV to EBITDA (Enterprise Value to Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) ratio is also another popular ratio used in the valuation of service companies or companies that are yet to turn profitable.

Enterprise value is a company's total value. All ownership interests and asset claims from both debt and equity are included.

The thumb rule is that a company with lower EV/EBITDA is more attractive.
