Raamdeo Agrawal mantras of finding Multibagger stocks
Mr. Raamdeo Agrawal is very generous when it comes to sharing knowledge. He shared five mantras of finding multi-bagger stocks to the investors.
(1) Return on Equity
The Return on Equity (RoE) is an important parameter for the selection of stock. The RoE of the company should be minimum 20%. You should never look at a company with low RoE. In addition to that RoE of the company should be increasing. It should not be declining or stand still. RoE indicates that company is allocating proper funds and generating better returns.
(2) Terms of Trade
The second thing which is important for the stock selection is Terms of Trade. Check if the company is able to trade the product with cash on delivery or prepayment basis. The credit period indicates demand and strength of products.
A company that offers long credit period indicates that demand for the product in the market is low as a company has to tempt the buyer to purchase the product by giving long credit period. On the other hand, a company with prepayment product indicates that buyer is ready to pay money upfront to purchase the product and competition is less.
(3) Cash Flow
The next is to check cash flow of the company operating cash flow and free cash flow of company should be positive. Cash flow indicates profitability of the company. In order to know cash flow, you need to study cash flow statement of the company. If cash flow of the company is healthy go for it.
(4) Longevity of the Business
Check the longevity of the business. How long business growth story will continue? Predicting longevity is a pure judgment based on experience. Can the stock be next McDonald where franchise demand will continue forever or it will be like kingfisher airlines disaster?
Check if the company will be able to withstand the competition in the market or not. If a company is generating good revenue it is likely to face big competition, but there is an entry barrier or monopoly product it will rule the market.
