Lockdown star: Vaibhav Global doubles wealth in 3 months, but is it still lucrative?

Vaibhav Global, a company with a market-cap of little over Rs 4,000 crore rose to fresh 52-week high almost on a daily basis in the last 3 months. The stock price rallied nearly 100 percent from March 24 when the Nifty50 made a swing low of 7,511.

Vaibhav Global Limited is a multi-national electronic retailer, wholesaler, and manufacturer of fashion jewellery and lifestyle accessories. It reaches almost 100 million households through its TV Shopping channels – ShopLC in the US and The Jewellery Channel (TJC) in the UK.

The stock which hit a low of Rs 490 on March 24 rallied to Rs 1,259 on June 25 which translates into an upside of more than 150 percent. The momentum has certainly doubled the stock in a short period of time but high valuations and poor revenue growth make analysts cautious and advise investors to book profits.

Net profit of Vaibhav Global rose by 22 percent on a YoY basis to Rs 39.74 crore for the quarter ended March 2020. Sales rose by nearly 8 percent on a YoY basis to Rs 498.05 crore in the same period.

“The stock is trading at a premium valuation at this point. Its operating profit also decreased QoQ, where other income increased in the financial year of March 2020. The company possesses a stable growth history and manageable debt,” Gaurav Garg, Head of Research at CapitalVia Global Research Limited- Investment Advisor told Moneycontrol.

COVID-19 Vaccine

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a vaccine work?

A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic. Herd immunity occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. The good news is that SARS-CoV-2 virus has been fairly stable, which increases the viability of a vaccine.

How many types of vaccines are there?

There are broadly four types of vaccine — one, a vaccine based on the whole virus (this could be either inactivated, or an attenuated [weakened] virus vaccine); two, a non-replicating viral vector vaccine that uses a benign virus as vector that carries the antigen of SARS-CoV; three, nucleic-acid vaccines that have genetic material like DNA and RNA of antigens like spike protein given to a person, helping human cells decode genetic material and produce the vaccine; and four, protein subunit vaccine wherein the recombinant proteins of SARS-COV-2 along with an adjuvant (booster) is given as a vaccine.

What does it take to develop a vaccine of this kind?

Vaccine development is a long, complex process. Unlike drugs that are given to people with a diseased, vaccines are given to healthy people and also vulnerable sections such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. So rigorous tests are compulsory. History says that the fastest time it took to develop a vaccine is five years, but it usually takes double or sometimes triple that time.

Garg is of the view that the company seems highly inefficient in case of asset management with high liquidity current ratio 2.37%. “Our recommendation will be to book the profit at current levels and makes a new position at a lower price,” he said.

Rahul Sharma, Research Head- Equity99 also advises investors to avoid fresh buying in Vaibhav Global. “Public who are holding stock from lower levels should opt for trail stop loss to keep the pockets happy,” he said.

Technical Take:

The stock has run up a lot in the short term, and traders will be better off taking some profits off the table, and hold in case they invested in the last three months, and for new investors, fresh positions should be avoided.

This counter is in a steady uptrend since the panic low of 551 registered in March 2020. Interestingly, for the last 3 months, this counter is steadily moving inside a narrow ascending channel with multiple touch points, suggest experts.

“As long as it sustains above the said channel one can remain optimistic and look for a continuation of the uptrend while a close below the said channel, whose support seems to be around 1200 levels can signal a trend reversal in favour of bears,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory,

Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.

“Contrary to this a close above 1300 can extend the upswing towards 1450 levels. However, considering the 200% percent return it delivered in a short span of 4 months positional,” he said.

Mohammad further added that traders who are fortunate enough to have bought at lower levels shall consider booking profits and re-enter again on a close above 1300 whereas long term investors who want to ride the rally may put a stop below 1185 on closing basis.

Nitin Shahi- Executive Director, Findoc is of the view that the stock crossed levels of Rs 1,200 in June, breaking its previous high of 1199. The stock has continued to hold above the levels of 1200.

“RSI on the daily chart, trading above levels of 70-75, shows overbought conditions in stock. But still, an investor can hold on to positions in Vaibhav Global with a strict stop loss of Rs 1150. Fresh positions are to be avoided,” he said.
