Evaluating against 9 Criterias of Value Investing by Warren Buffett
The company had shown 3 times growth in 5 years, If the same velocity is maintained, the expected sales in 2023 is 3000 Crores.
In the long term, if the company could deliver above growth, the company falls in Large Cap section. Then PE Ratio could quote around 20 as per the Information Technology Large Cap PE. This provides additional 2X gains for the company.
Recently the company provided Employee Stock Options, which should reveal the growth confidence demonstrated by management.
Indian Warren Buffet, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala holding the stock as per sources.
Company is quoting around 2.5 times of Book Value
Current Market Price is around 52 week high, Installment Investment is Logical
We do go for very long investment period of 10 to 20 years. Dividends are the Income & Long Term Capital Appreciation are the Ultimate Targets.
Exceptionally, we do exit the stock during NIFTY PE Ration > 25 & buy back when the NIFTY PE RATIO is quoting below 15, all through installment buy, sell.
Why we choose very long period?
As we have other jobs to concentrate on, plus we do not get daily time to watch the stock daily. We use the User Alerts feature for automatic notification on price trigger.
What if the price went 50% down?
I would recommend adding 100% more to the stock, provided the fundamentals are intact & there is only temporary problem with company or with sector.

As a freelancer analyst I have undergone evaluation of the above company & invested in the same. I expect you to do through analysis, do enough diversification & invest in the stock. I am holding other IT stocks like Infosys, Persistent Systems & believe Geometric is a good addition with diversification.
