Virinchi Limited

Hi Sir,

Virinchi Ltd is small cap company with ₹130 crore market cap, it has been growing over 30% for the past 5 years and available at a low PE ratio of 7. It is a software company, but now they have started a 500 bed hospital (3-4 months back) with investment around 500 crore in Hyderabad, numbers from the hospital business will be reflected in the quarterly results? If yes, isn’t the stock available cheap?

Author’s Response:

Hi,

Thanks for writing to me!

Assessment of the competitive advantage of an IT company is difficult in the light of ever changing technological environment in which such businesses operate. Sustainability of the past growth in future, would determine whether the stock is available cheap or it is justified at current valuations. The investor should understand further the kind of products/services the company provides, its competitors etc. to make an opinion about the future sustainability of the demand of its products/services.

Regarding start of the hospital, it remains to be seen whether the management is able to successfully execute and run the hospital profitably. There have been many instances where hospitals have not been able to run profitably and have proved to be a drain on the wealth of shareholders. Therefore, assigning any value to the future earnings of hospital should be done with a pinch of salt and it is advised to wait and see the execution ability of the management before arriving at any view about the under/fair/over valuation of the company’s stock price.

"Peaceful Investing": My Stock Investing Approach

“Peaceful Investing” approach is the result of my more than a decade of experience in equity markets. This approach helped me invest even when I had a full-time corporate job and therefore, could not spare a lot of time for stock analysis.

During my investing journey, I have faced almost all the common challenges of the investors; the biggest one being “scarcity of time”. “Peaceful Investing” approach keeps in mind that an investor will have only limited time for stock analysis. 

The objective of “Peaceful Investing” approach is the selection of such stocks, where once an investor has put in her money, then she may sleep peacefully. Therefore, if later on, the stock prices increase, then the investor is happy as she is now wealthier. On the contrary, if the stock prices decline, even then the investor is happy as she can now buy more quantity of the selected fundamentally good stocks.
