Development and FMCG sector

Cigarettes, Softdrinks, food product, Personal care and hygiene products are the examples of this sector. Annually, our FMCG sector is growing 11 percent. And this growth is unbreakable or unstoppable because the rising population will result in increase capacity of purchasing goods which cause stable growth in consumer sector. Companies in FMCG sector generally retain a very small portion/percentage of margin which resulted in huge production of these goods to earn better profit from lower margin.

Events like Holi, Diwali and sometimes holidays affect the major portion of Production of company. Slightly up and down in Growth Numbers of FMCG companies are attached through them. Like in case of Patanjali, that can said to be a big storm for lower Capital FMCG Companies which also affected the Income and profit of Bigger Companies like HUL, Dabur, ITC etc. But as now, numbers of such companies are becoming again stable. Patanjali has captured as much as market share that was obtainable for him. Now, Growth Numbers of Patanjali doesn’t remain like 200 percent jump, 150 percent jump. With passage of time, GDP contribution of different FMCG companies is likely to be rise with stable growth.

Although, FMCG sector is a case of long term and needs to be given proper time to get better returns. Those who wants to buy a stock with perspective of long term for about 4-5 years can invest in FMCG sector. Tata Global Beverages, Marico and ITC are my top pics that i would advice to buy if you wish to invest in FMCG sector.

In just Rs.100, People can feel the ola as their personal car. But this doesn’t mean that demand is decreasing either it had a positive impact on Auto Industry. Many Auto Companies like Mahindra are working together with ola to gain better and  hold their market share. Taxi companies has not only brought a reform in Auto Industry, it has made Car Finance more easier and beneficial. As the Auto sector would continue to unlock new opportunities and events, the prices of auto Stocks would continue to climb with stable interest of investors.

Investors those wants to invest in Auto sector should invest in companies having high potential and low market value. Through analysing Sales Number, Financial Numbers and Potential, i would advice to buy Bajaj Auto, M&M and Maruti Suzuki for long term.
