Top 10 stocks Forbes India recommends to invest in 2011
_

Theme: Demand for Industrial Consumables
Stock: Savita Oil Technologies

The company supplies industrial lubricants, waxes and other industrial consumables. It has been showing a scorching growth in net profit for some time now. With a good promoter, sound business model and a great dividend record, it is poised to benefit from industrial growth in the coming year. It is also attractively priced.

Theme: Rural Growth
Stock: Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services

The company has a strong presence in rural markets and derives about 90 percent of its revenues from there. Its business model reflects the company’s nuanced understanding of the rural segment. As the demand for tractors grows, the company will be a direct beneficiary.

Theme: Domestic Pharma Play
Stock: Torrent Pharma

Torrent has a very strong domestic focus, an advantage as the attention of global pharma majors turns towards India. The ongoing consolidation has created a lot of excitement about drug companies and this highly profitable company will be in the limelight. The company’s penetration in smaller cities and towns will be an advantage in the coming years.

Theme: Suppressed Value in Banking
Stock: Punjab National Bank

With banks accounting for almost a fourth of the market capitalisation of index stocks, it is hard to ignore the sector. But even the well-run public sector banks have not been able to get the valuation of nimble private sector competitors. Punjab National Bank has a stellar record in operational parameters, but still trades below industry average P/E. The rapid credit growth will keep the bank busy in the months ahead.

Theme: Increased Use of Natural Gas
Stock: Gujarat State Petronet

From Bharat Petroleum to Petronet LNG, some really large companies are investing serious money in the changing energy mix of India in favour of natural gas. In the coming years, hundreds of miles of pipeline will carry natural gas to nooks and corners of India. Gujarat State Petronet is a strong play on this theme, trading at surprisingly low P/E.

Theme: Retail Expansion
Stock: Colgate-Palmolive

The spread of organised retail is opening up under-explored markets to fast-moving consumer goods companies. With 3 million rural distribution outlets and a leadership position in oral care products, Colgate is at the right place at the right time.

Theme: US Economic Recovery
Stock: Oracle Financial Services Software

The resurgence of the US will bring back big-time technology spending and Indian companies stand to gain. However, mainstream software services companies are highly priced. Oracle Fin is one of the few tech stocks that still have some headroom for appreciation.  When US banks invest in technology to comply with new regulations, Oracle will rake in the moolah.
