Two things are quite evident from the buying action of the wizards. The first is that all three wizards are privy to some knowledge that has made them super-bullish about TCPL Packaging. The second is that the wizards are being careful to do their buying in installments so as to keep their action as quiet as possible.
The reason for the bullishness of the wizards is quite evident when you consider the financial performance of TCPL Packaging for the year ended 31.03.2015. The turnover increased by 25.45% from Rs. 412.44 crore to Rs. 517.40 crore. The EBIDTA increased to Rs. 82.00 crore from Rs. 61.18 crore during the previous year, an increase of 34.03%. The Cash profit surged from Rs. 64.71 crore in FY 2014-15 as against Rs. 43.52 crore in FY 2013-14.
The track record of the past five years is also quite encouraging. The sales have grown at a CAGR of about 21% while the profit has grown at a CAGR of 48%. The ROE is also quite high at about 19%.
At the CMP of Rs. 552, TCPL Packaging is quoting at a P/E of about 14x and offers a dividend yield of about 1%. This is quite reasonable when you consider the consistent track record of the company.
TCPL Packaging also has a track record of paying generous dividends. The dividend payout is retained at close to 19% of the net profits.
The annual report also paints a rosy picture of the future outlook for the company. It states that there is an improvement in the FMCG and other sectors where the Company supplies the packaging material. It is also stated that with inflation stabilising, it is expected that the country will return to the high growth rates seen in the past and that this will translate into higher rates of industry growth for consumption in the future, which will auger well for TCPL’s prospects.
Also, according to a report in printweek.in, the market for labels is worth a whopping Rs. 3000 crore. A reference is made to the fact that TCPL has launched its Guwahati operation with investment in the latest infrastructure and equipment.
In an interview to printweek.in, Saket Kanoria, the MD, revealed that the FMCG industry is growing at about 10-12% volume-wise and that the company is also picking up market share. This has helped the company to grow at about 17-18% consistently over the past years. He also added that the huge capex investment required to set up a plant and also the geographical proximity to the customers required created some sort of an entry barrier for competitors.
So, it does look like the three wizards have picked yet another winner stock for themselves.
