Promoter stake dropping to low levels:-
Promoters stake has slowly come down from above 50% in 2000 to just 9.7% now which doesn’t give comfort holding this stock @ such high valuations. In fact in last 5 years itself it has dropped from 30% to current levels.
The demand scenario for infrastructure has improved after majority government at the helm but the stock has multiplied itself by more than 6.5 times and the best looks priced in for now, a correction will give a better entry point in my view.
