These companies, doubled their assets without much leverage and were able to maintain a double-digit sales and profit CAGR.
To access earnings visibility of any company, business expansion would be one of the most important factors anyone would look at. And although companies have different ways of going about this, at the very core, they are all headed towards the same goal -- any measures taken should at some point result in more money in the company's coffers.Bearing this in mind, we at Moneycontrol have shortlisted a few names that fulfill all the criteria mentioned below:-
- Gross block of the company at least doubled in the past five fiscals. (Average increase over the 5-year term is minimum 50 percent as well).
- The company’s debt to equity ratio did not exceed 0.5 times in any of the past five financial years.
- A return on equity (ROE) of minimum 10 percent was earned in each of the past five fiscal years.
- The 5-year compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) for sales and profit after tax exceeded 10 percent.
Interestingly, only seven companies listed on the BSE met these criteria -- 8K Miles Software Services, Astral Poly Technik , Infobeans Technologies, Just Dial, Mahindra Logistics, Reliance Nippon Life and Sun Pharma.
Unsurprisingly, these companies, more often than not, are good performers in terms of returns on stock price, as seen in the exhibit below:-
8K Miles and Astral Poly Technik delivered positive returns in 4 out of 5 fiscal years, in the range of 25-583 percent. Just Dial, on the other hand, has been a major underperformer over the years, barring the year it got listed -- 2013 -- when it returned 154 percent.Follow @riteshpresswalaGet access to India's fastest growing financial subscriptions service Moneycontrol Pro for as little as Rs 599 for first year.
