Liquor industry or the alcohol industry is cyclical in nature. Like any other industry, it has cycles. You will be surprised that the liquor industry in India is also somewhat connected with the sugar industry.

Molasses is a by-product of the sugar industry and the alcohol, the pure alcohol that is generated by the sugar mills is sold to the distilleries and flavouring and colouring is added to make it either into whiskey or gin or vodka.

How should you value liquor companies?

Investing in stocks requires careful analysis of financial data to find out a company's true worth. However, an easier way to find out about a company's performance is to look at its financial ratios.

Two commonly used financial ratios used in the valuation of 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 expensive the stock.

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.
