Which are the top cement companies in India right now?

As per Equitymaster's Stock Screener, here is a list of the top cement companies in India right now...

These companies have been ranked as per their market capitalization. The higher the market cap, the higher the total value of the company.

Of course, there are other parameters you should take into account before forming a hard opinion on the stock valuation.

When should you invest in the cement sector?

Stocks of cement companies are riskier investments as their fortunes are prone to economic booms and busts. For this reason, they are called cyclical stocks.

Cyclical stocks can be used to generate high returns when the economy is doing well.

However, before selecting a stock, always check to see if the industry is due for revival or not.

Where can I find a list of cement stocks?

The details of listed cement companies can be found on the NSE and BSE website. For a curated list you can check out our list of cement stocks.

What kind of dividend yields do cement stocks offer?

There is no consistent trend of dividends across the industry, with different companies adopting different dividend policies.

For more details, check out our list of top cement stocks offering high dividend yields.

What are the metrics used to evaluate cement companies?

Stock investing requires a careful analysis of the financial data. The key is to find a company's true worth.

However, an easier way to check a company's performance is to look at its financial ratios.

Two commonly used financial ratios in the valuation of cement stocks are:

  • Price to Earnings Ratio (P/E) - It compares the company's stock price with its earnings per share. The higher the P/E ratio, the more overvalued the stock.

    To find stocks with favourable P/E ratios, check out our list of cement stocks with their P/E ratios.

  • Price to Book Value Ratio (P/BV) - It compares a firm's market capitalization to its book value. A high P/BV indicates markets believe the company's assets to be undervalued and vice versa.

    To find stocks with favourable P/BV ratios, check out our list of cement stocks with their P/BV ratios.
