Stock Idea: Prism Cement

Prism Cement having changed its accounting year to end with March ending instead of June had posted good results for quarter as well as period ended 31st March,09. This is the first audited results of FY 09 having posted by any company, even ahead of Infosys. Due to improved performance in Q3 , the company has declared a final dividend of 5%, which along with 10% interim having already paid, make it 15% for the period or 20% annualised, against 10% having paid last year.

The company posted a total income of Rs.245 crores in Q3 against Rs.218 crores of Q2 and Rs. 167 crores of Q1 while total for the period is at Rs.630 crores. PAT for Q3 stood at Rs. 50 cr. Against Rs. 31 cr. Of Q2 and Rs. 15 cr. of Q1. A rising trend on topline and bottomline. It is also heartening to note that on an EPS of Rs. 3.23 a dividend of Re.1.50 is being paid. Thanks to debt free status of the company. This is inspite of the fact that tax liability of the company for FY 09 has been at 40% against 26% of FY 08.

Share ruling at 27 has fully factored in the working for FY10 and would see its full value coming in at Rs.30.
