VALUATION:
We expect the market for commodity to remain dull for next two years. It will show revival only in FY2011. The price of aluminum is expected to decline as there is excess capacity in the industry. We expect EPS of Rs10 in FY2010 and looking at the present scenario we are valuing the company at 5X to FY2010E EPS. The fair valuation we arrive is at Rs50.
The current market price is Rs74. So there is considerable downside in the stock.


CONCLUSION:
Investor should avoid the counter at present price. It will be value buying as the price comes to this level.
