  1. Hi Mani,

    This is brilliant and look at the current price! You are doing a great work and I immensely like your articles.

    Please advise if you have posted analysis on other stocks as I am not able to navigate through your blog. Also consider to place a search space and to date the article as well.

    I tried to buy the worksheet with the button below (60% discount) but it seems not working as it takes me to a page asking for a full price, could you please look at it.

    Thanks again and keep doing the good work.

  3. Hey, excellent analysis. You should look into Indo Count Industries. Its price has fallen so much that now it is very close to its NCAVPS value. This company has excellent financial metrics (ROE, ROCE,etc.)
