Know which stocks are worth investing in

How is the business model? Good, Great, or Gruesome?

Good Business Model. Upon achieving scale, the business can generate a superior return on Equity (ROE). Low asset intensity and pricing power over consumers are sources of superior ROE. However, Stove Kraft is still some time away from becoming a good business.


With sales of Rs. ~650 Cr, Stove Kraft is demanding Enterprise value /Sales of more than 2x. Enterprise Value = Market Cap (1250 Cr) + Debt (300 Cr) – Cash from IPO (100 Cr)

With the limited scale and low ROE, we recommend AVOID.
