Comparisions to Peers:
There are few good companies like Gayatri Projects, L & T (though big and diversified), JMC projects etc with which it can be compared to.
Infrastructure as an industry has not done well since the last couple of years. We have seen big collapse in even big groups and liquidity crisis due to which they have sold off assets to repay the debt. In this scenario, we have ITD Cementation which is doing extremely well in the current scenario with robust order book, multinational promoter, transparent management, investor friendly approach. We believe all the infra companies with relatively low debt will do very well in the future and will see multifold growth.
The share presently quoting at Rs 80 can easily cross 105 in the next 1 year and if kept longer can become a multibagger in next few years.
