I ran a stock analysis for earnings growth and Sree Rayalaseema Hi-Strength Hypo (NSE:SRHHYPOLTD) passed with ease
For starters, it might seem like a good idea (and an exciting prospect) to buy a company that tells investors a good story, even if it completely lacks a track record of revenue and earnings. But as Peter Lynch said in One Up on Wall Street“Long shots almost never pay off.”
In the era of blue-sky tech-stock investments, my choice may seem old-fashioned; I always prefer profitable companies like Sree Rayalaseema High Resistance Hypo (NSE: SRHHYPOLTD). Although profit is not necessarily a social good, it is easy to admire a company that can produce it consistently. Loss-making businesses are always in a race against time to achieve financial viability, but time is often the friend of a profitable business, especially if it is growing.
