Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation can touch Rs 500, says Aashish Tater of Fort Share Broking.
Tater told CNBC-TV18, "Bombay Burmah has got a very strong balance sheet and this is one reason that I like this particular stock, may be the stock would bore you from a longer term perspective also and it will be hobbling around at 400 to 500 odd mark and right now itís trading at 407-410 odd levels. So I think one can take a call of 20% from next 8-12 month perspective."
He further added, "Now if I take a call from its balance sheet perspective it owns through its subsidiaries almost 51% in Britannia Industries. Current market cap of Britannia is 5600 odd mark. 51% roughly works out to be that Rs 2800 odd crore, the market cap is Rs 560 crore. As a holding company it warrants that 20% discount. So itís fairly valued.Ē
"Now take a call itís exposure to Bombay Dyeing, it was almost 14% so again a safe bet. Now what interesting is that Britannia industries is available at a dividend yield of 1.6%, so similarly with Bombay Burmah. So they will be getting Rs 35-40 crore in terms of free cash flows to equities just through dividends through Britannia."
"Last year they sold their JV into the rubber JV. This year they have sold their sunmica division so there is some reorganization that is going into Bombay Burmah or letís say Wadia group. So I think there is lot of potential even going forward because now if I take a call in their core business, which is their tea and plantations that is available in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. They have got good presence and they have got good ability to generate free-cash flow to equity. So from fundamental perspective if I ignore the balance sheet value it will be somewhere around Rs 180-200 and on conservative side if I see the replacement value of this plantation business it again works out to be Rs 180-200, so Rs 400 plus the investment."
"People try to get into at Rs 380 to 400 because they have actually generated free cash flow of equity of close to Rs 165 crore. If I see this year Rs 100 crore of sunmica division and Rs 65 crore from JV ventures sell, so itís a cash rage company with limited downside and a potential target of Rs 500. One can take a trading bet in this turmoil times."
