Alert share


Luxchem is in my watchlist also. Good dividend and business is improving. Revenue & profit are growing, but profit margin is decreasing. This is why I am still thinking. Its profit margin is less than 5%, a bit too riskly to invest in this counter I guess, any drastic changing on the price of raw material or currency will affect its earning power unless they can pass the cost to their customer. Hope someone can share in more details.notworthy

I have not gone into details yet, but looking at their EPS since 2008, they appeared relatively unscathed by the business cycle fluctuations and forex movements. Even if profit margin is at 4-5%, it is still interesting considering the former.
