BGR Energy: Building the Indian Power Story
Last week I heard a very interesting story which eventually gave me the idea of investing in BGR Energy Systems Ltd. Thought of sharing with you.
Years back when the South African Government opened their country for outsiders to come and do mining for diamonds, entrepreneurs form all over the world rushed to South Africa in the hope of finding diamonds and changing their fortunes. Of them only very few were able to do so and become rich. But there was one African business man who instead of joining this rat race to discover diamond started the business of selling/renting hammers and other mining material whoever was coming to discover diamond. He eventually became a millionaire and one of the most successful entrepreneur of this Diamond run.
I hope some of you must have realized the point I am trying to put here. In India currently most of the companies are running to set up the power plant to generate power and other half are running to build the great power generating turbines or boilers. But very few are there in the business of building the Balance of Plants (BOP) which accounts for more than 35% of the total money spent in building up a power plant.
Thus, I strongly believe that there is a huge potential in this sector and BGR energy being the undisputed leader with a strong order book and execution track record offers great long term investment opportunity.
I would recommend one to start a SIP form of investment in this stock for a minimum of 2.5-3 years period, since at the current levels investing lump sum might be a little dangerous given the market conditions.
