    My investment rationale don't quite follow or are not an outcome of any present or laid out yardsticks or assessment benchmarks

    So long as I can understand what's the business, know it's easy to track, the immediate future looks bright and company is well positioned to take advantage of the prevailing situation..... That's good enough for me most of the time

    How would you dissuade me from taking some exposure in Castrol?

    It's close to 52 week low probably hit by demon and GST - like how the entire auto was hit. But good ratios otherwise - high margins, good brand, ROI, dividend yield etc

    Fundamentals are impressive , no question. But as chart shows stock is sliding down right from Dec 2014. Why? As per my reading it can further slide down.But I could be wrong.Better confirm from others from forum, who have better knowledge. As I recollect there was some demerger in Castrol. When did it happen ?

    Probably can go down to 320.... You think so?

    But if and when it reversed, given fundamentals could it sky rocket to 550+ say in 2 years

    Let us hope so. Although past performance can't be confidently extrapolated yet one can expect handsome returns. But I suggest timely entry.

    Castrol india have made triple bottom . Chances of going down is less. It's at multi-year low. Fundamentally its excellent. PE is close to 10 yr PE.

    As per my opinion it is important to know--What led to persistent downfall from Dec 14 despite so impressive fundamentals.

    @Shakti Ji
    Sir you are absolutely correct , Castrol today closing Rs. 361.55 , from 2016 onwards it is forming Triple Bottom in weekly chart and now , it is reaching that level also , in very short - medium term Rs. 375 - 400
    may be possible , if it cross 400 Rs. and sustain above that level Rs. 450 may be possible
    below 335 closing wait and watch method is better until recover 350

    I am hesitant until I know the cause of massive downfall.Why is market ignoring the fundamentals, for such a long time, which make us hopeful? Is the market wrong ?.This is my line of thinking.

    It has cracked and can go down but probability is less. Castrol have sort of monopoly and if auto stocks 4 as well as 2 wheelers will go up castrol will also rise. Will purchase if it goes down in phase wise manner. Downside looks Limited, but can't say when it will start going up. Moreover Ian a long term investor a very long term :)
