Key takeaways of Gujarat Containers Ltd

For the quarter ended June 2022, the company recorded a net income of 41.96Cr compared to 37.43 Cr recorded in Q1FY22 representing a YoY growth of 12.10%. The company's profit before tax (PBT) jumped from 3.73 Cr in Q1FY22 to 5.49 Cr in Q1FY23 representing a YoY growth of 47% and the company's profit after tax (PAT) grew by 55% YoY from 2.65 Cr in Q1FY22 to 4.11 Cr in Q1FY23. 

At Friday's closing the shares of the company were seen trading above 5 days, 10 days, 20 days, 50 days, 100 days, and 200 days Exponential Moving Average (EMA). However, since the RSI price index of Rs. 75.5 is in the overbought zone potential investors should exercise caution as Gujarat Containers Ltd.'s price may be anticipated to rise slightly in the near future resulting from the scrip being in a quasi segment. 

The corporation reported a promoter shareholding of 59.76% for the quarter that ended in June 2022, a growth of 1.77% from the prior quarter, and a public shareholding of 40.24%. At its most recent price, the stock had a P/B ratio of 4.58, a PE of 8.98x, and an EV/EBITDA ratio of 6.77x. Although the company has a high ROE of 47.49% and has been rising for the past three years, the fact that its shares crossed its positive breakout second resistance level at the last traded price, may indicate an opportunity.
