One can see that Dolly is implementing a carefully thought out strategy when picking stocks.
Her favourite sectors at present are the textiles sector and the specialty chemicals sector. Experts have opined that both sectors will do well as a result of the slowdown in China.
A few days ago, we analyzed the three stocks that Dolly has picked in the specialty chemicals space. Each stock is notching up handsome gains.
Even in the textiles space, Dolly has chosen three stocks. These are Nandan Denim, RSWM and Nitin Spinners.
All three stocks are doing well and have heavily out-performed the benchmark indices.

Nandan Denim jumped 17% on Friday to rest at Rs. 155. What caused the surge is not known.
According to a report in the Hindu, Nandan Denim will become “Asia’s largest denim manufacturer” by June 2016 when the expansion plan goes on stream.
It is stated that there will be “exploding global demand” for denim as several international players are sourcing denim from India “due to raw material and other input advantages” apart from stable economic and political environment.
It is also stated that the current per capita consumption of denim in India is at 0.3 pairs per person as compared to 2 pairs in China and 8/9 pairs in UK/US. This implies that there is huge scope for expansion. It is also pointed out that the current domestic consumption of denim is about 700-800 MMPA, while 200-300 million metres are exported. Assuming the domestic market grows at a compounded annual growth rate of 15-18 per cent (the current growth rate), the demand would reach 2 billion metres by 2020.
RSWM also surged 16% on 11th May after it reported robust Q4FY16 results.

It is significant to note that RSWM appears to be Dolly Khanna’s high conviction stock pick when you consider the amount of funds that she has pumped into the stock relative to the other textile stocks.
RSWM’s MD revealed that the Company has now completed its aggressive expansion plan (which had depressed the financials) and that it would now reap the benefits of the same.
It is obvious that if RSWM does achieve the promise of becoming debt-free, it will be re-rated and more gains will effortlessly from the stock.
Nitin Spinner is also on an aggressive expansion spree. Dinesh Nolkha, its MD, revealed that for FY17, the company has plans to increase capacities which would come on stream by the year-end. It is also stated that the debt, which presently stands at Rs. 290 crore, would be reduced by Rs. 50 crore in FY17.
Daljeet Kohli has studied Nitin Spinners in detail and recommended a buy on the basis that the expansion plans will be a “game changer” for the Company.
