INVESTMENT LOGIC:

With rise in automobile sales in the past years, the numbers of vehicle on road have increased leading to increase demand for lubricants.
Castrol continues to focus its energies on providing high quality lubricant solution to its customers and derive greater value from the market.
Castrol India is a major player in diesel engine oils, a segment that constitutes over 50% of the total lubricant market. It commands an overall market share 25%, with around 20% in the truck segment, 30% in tractors, 35% in cars, 45% in motorcycle and 10% in scooters. 
The company focus continues to be on the franchised workshop segment where it has strong partnership with leading OEMs (original equipment maker).
Long term partnership with leading original equipment maker (OEM) have been the backbone company’s success. CIL forged new alliance with Mahindra and Mahindra, Escort, TATA MOTORS, TATA Cummins.
Road infrastructure development continues to be the key focus area of the government. This in turn would lead to higher demand for lubricant from commercial vehicle.

VALUATION:

CONCLUSION:
During the past one year the stock price has appreciated by around more than 10%, whereas market has shown fallen by more than 50%.This is because of company’s good fundamental and consistent performance.
