Analysis of PTC India Share Price

What made me do the analysis of PTC India share price?

Recently I observing the overall stocks market and its individual sectors in general.

In last few days, the stock market has been showing signs of a possible correction.

During such times, I often visit BSE India’s website and watch individual sector’s indices.

Here I found that the S&P BSE POWER index was hovering closest to its 52W Lows.

In todays times, when Sensex and Nifty are trading at all high high levels, S&P BSE POWER is close to its 52W low.

This can only happen when the share price of individual stocks of power sector/Index is falling.

Moreover, the market is moving towards a possible correction. It means, the stocks of POWER sector may fall further.

This is a great moment to grab some fundamentally strong stocks of this Power Sector.

With this thought process in mind, I started glancing at the financial reports of almost all stocks which are included in S&P BSE POWER index.

There I found PTC India.

These days PTC India works more like a complete solution provider for the power sector.

How they do it?

PTC India works mainly like an intermediatary. On one hand they have Independent Power Producers (IPPs) of India. On the other hand they have Power distribution companies.

PTC India support both type of companies, which ultimately results in efficient power generation and distribution to the needful areas.

PTC India also has a subsidiary called PTC India Financial Services. This group provides support to the companies operating in power sector in terms making them available the needful financing.

Mr. Deepak Amitabh is the Chairman and MD of PTC India. He worked as an IRS officer for GOI, before been sent on deputation in PTC India as its CFO.

Short term price movement of PTC India

In last four months (since Nov’17), PTC India’s share price has dropped from Rs.126 levels to Rs.96.5 levels. This is a drop of 23.4% in 4 months.

In last 30 days itself, PTC India’s share price has dropped from Rs.120 to Rs.96.5 levels. This is a drop of 19.5% in just 1 month.

This sudden price drop prompted me to look into the business fundamentals of PTC India.

My intention is to include this stock in my watch list. If current price of this stocks is anywhere close to its intrinsic value, it becomes very interesting.

This company being so heavily guarded by GOI, if I can catch this stock at its intrinsisc value, it is sure to give good returns.

Moreover there are two more points working in its favor:

(1) Power sector is doing bad now.

But it will improve in times to come.

(2) Indian stock market is going for a possible major correction.

This will further make PTC India share price to fall further.

If presently PTC India share price is not below its intrinsic value, stock market correction will surely bring it there.

These are my findings about PTC India share price analysis:

Intrinsic value calculation is not easy. But investing in a stock without comparing its intrinsic value with its current price is a big mistake.

There are several ways to estimate intrinsic value of a stock. But I rely more on the following methods. I have incorporated all of my favourite method in my worksheet to estimate intrinsic value of stocks:

  • etc

#7. What is the final conclusion?

After considering almost all aspect of stocks as discussed above, how to arrive at a final conclusion?

The ultimate question is, the stock is good or bad? How to arrive at this conclusion?

My stock analysis worksheet does this very nicely for me. Based on the following parameters, it generates an overall grade for its stock.

If the generated grade is above 85%, the stock is considered good.

Lets see what grades are generated for PTC India:

  • The Overall grade for PTC India is 69%.
    • The market price of PTC India seems to be priced just right. It scores 99%
    • In terms of future growth prospects, PTC India gets 100%.
    • PTC India earns low (46%) for its managements efficiency.
    • In terms of profitability, PTC India scores the lowest, 9%.
    • Financial Health of the company is only average at 61%.
    • There is no bankruptcy threat to PTC India. It earns 100%

It must be noted that, this worksheet gives more importance to the price valuation of stock. A stock which is priced right will score higher.

This worksheet scores stocks rather defensively.

There are not many stocks in the market that can earn grade above 80% from this worksheet.

This is one reason why, I can say that PTC India looks to be a good stock. But due to its profitability, its overall score dips.

Stock analysis is complicated, use our Stock Engine to analyze selected 1,300+ number stocks.

The Stock Engine will give its first impression about its stocks. Then it goes deeper and calculate its intrinsic value and the overall score. The Stock Engine makes it easier to interpret the fundamentals of stocks even for untrained investors.
