5 Penny Stocks Which Are Not Penny

By News Canvass | Dec 14, 2021

Penny stocks are the ones which trade at a very low price. Usually, these stocks lack liquidity and carry high risk. The public information available on these stocks/companies is very limited, which makes it difficult for an investor to understand the future prospects of the business. However, penny stocks with good fundamentals and strong business models have the potential to become multi baggers in the long run. Here are some of these stocks.

Sintex Plastics (SPTL)

SPTL was established by transferring the plastic business (66% of FY17 revenue) and the Prefab & Infra business of Sintex Industries (34% of FY17 revenue). Sintex Plastics, a leading player in custom molding business (mainly composites), stands to benefit from growing trend of composites replacing metal parts across industries. Thus, we expect revenue CAGR of 12.8% over FY18E-20E. We see EBITDA CAGR of 15.6% over FY18E20E due to operating leverage and better product mix over FY18E-20E. Owing to the decline in interest outgo, we expect SPTL to post 17.5% PAT CAGR over FY18E-20E. SPTL is done with its capex cycle and has lowered its focus on w/c intensive Prefab & Infra business, thus enhancing cash generation. This will lead to net debt declining by ~Rs1,500cr over FY17-20E.

The Authority paid the first milestone payment (20% of physical progress) for Nagpur, Package-II and Mahuva to Kagavadar. The appointment date for other two HAM projects is expected shortly. The company has started collecting toll from 124 entry points to Delhi. EPC order book of Rs3,000cr also provides strong revenue visibility. Thus, we expect 27% CAGR in revenue over FY18E-20E. We see PAT CAGR of 39% over FY18E-FY20E.

IDFC Limited, through its subsidiaries, operates as a non-banking financial company in India. We expect NII to grow at CAGR of ~23% over FY18E-20E led by ~20% growth in credit. Among segments, faster growth is expected to come from retail. Expansion of banking business and non-interest income growth from AMC and securities business will lead to strong loan book growth. Its NIM is expected to expand by ~20bps yoy to 2.30% in FY18E. We foresee non-interest income to grow by ~16% yoy in FY18E supported by the Infra Development Fund worth ~Rs440cr. Alternative Investment Fund is expected to benefit from PE deals and infra debt management. Due to higher granularity, we expect NPA to improve in FY18E. It has increased its focus on branch efficiency, which should improve cost/income ratio.
