Temptation Foods - Amazing valuationI was shocked when I found a company with the balance sheet of temptation foods selling so low - almost close to its EPS. Although it is possible to find several stocks current market which are 'value for money' a company which has such a decent growth as Temptation Foods and which is selling at a P/E of around 1.2 - makes me feel suspicious. Ok, let me be honest, this time, I was less suspicious and more excited at first about the investment opportunity. However, as I continued finding our more about Temptation Foods - I have decided to stay away from this stock. Here are two quick reasons:
- Temptation Foods had manipulated it balance sheet to show that it holds 11% stake in Kohinoor Foods, when it actually held 5% stake. A SEBI notice regarding this sent the stock plummeting to hit the lower circuit. Consequently all FII's have dumped this stock, and rightly so.
- The company now wants to double the equity by issuing warrants at Rs. 36. The EPS of the company is Rs. 25. There is no way the management can justify a price as low as Rs. 36. This is clearly a dubious money-making attempt of the management of Temptation Foods India.
Compact Disc India - a step further in FraudCompact disc india looks even a bigger fraud than Temptation Foods. From what I read, this looks like a completely fake company !
The promoter of this company - Suresh Kumar has a dubious record. Mumbai police has written to SEBI about Suresh Kumar floating fake companies to make money. The details are summarized very well in Tarkeshwar's blog. So I won't elaborate further.
Please avoid Compact disc india if you love your hard earned money !
