LFIn is in a accumilation stage. If I red the MACD & Bollinger Bands correctly another two days the same process will happen and then we'll see the next maturity phase of the LFIN which has two remarkable points at Rs 145 /-  and  Rs 160/- .

Not that it will pull back from 145/= .


The phase which the counter will take to pass the Rs 145/=  and 160/= will determine whether it will reach Rs 200/= this year or not.

Free-cash balance will certainly push the company's EPS to a better than COMB /  HNB / SEYB figure in  2015-2016 FY.

Gold price drop will not make a hit on profitability as company just passed the 1st  Quarter of the financial year and also the core business of the company is Leasing.

Predicted annualized EPS is 20/= ( minimum)  , sector PE ratio is 10.5 .

Fair value =  20 X 10.5 = Rs 210/=

Also keep in mind that company might make a presence in "MYANMAR" in late 2016 FY for micro financing as many Banks & Finance from Sri Lanka just make an entrance.

LFIN has gradually increased its Dividend payout ratio during the history and EPS is Rs 5.6 for 1Q 2015.(Annualized - Rs 22.4). Hence the PE is 6.0 times.

Therefore if we calculate the expected market value of LFIN @ following PE levels;

Market PE @ 8         = Rs 179.2
Market PE @10       = Rs 224.0
Sector PE @ 12.93  = Rs 289.63

Therefore in the worse case any investor would be in the safe side since it is trading at a PE of 6 times. 

Further LFIN maintaining a diversified portfolio of business. It contains Leasing/hire purchase, Islamic Financing, Mortgage Loans, Factoring, Micro Finance, Pawning, Margin Trading, etc. Also recently company has introduced an innovative product to capture an untapped market of informal money lenders @ a lower rate. I guess this would bombard the market @ lower rate compared to informal lenders with aggressive marketing strategies of LFIN coupled with riders recoveries at business points. This is first time a bank or a finance company approached this market.

Company has made losses with Gold pawning business during 2012. However company now have diversified its portfolio to minimize the risk. Currently LFIN concentrates only 8%-10% on pawning business out of their total advances portfolio. Hence diminishing Gold rate in global market is less impact-full compared to 2012. Further global gold rates are at the rock /bottom since 1970. 

Further LFIN main business is leasing. During 2014, the imports of electric hybrid vehicles to Sri Lanka accelerated by 175% in terms of volume and 223% in terms of value. Reduction of duties for hybrid electric vehicles during 2014 was the reason for this boom. Japan is the major import source ofhybrid electric motor cars to Sri Lanka accounting for more than 95% of the market followed by Germany.


Hybrid Vehicles imports during 2010-2014(Source - Chamber of Commerce)

 
Year Volume(No)  Value(Rs/Mn) 
2010            438.00                                   980.00
2011        5,927.00         14,440.00
2012        1,943.00                                5,439.00
2013        9,707.00         20,430.00
201426,729.00         66,004.00
This indicates the potential of the business and the trends for demand for hybrid vehicles has continues in 2015 as well.

Therefore considering the above facts I would like to recommend LFIN as a highly undervalue counter with high potential. Many investment funds, corporate investors eye as a medium/Long term investment due to its earnings potential and Dividend Yield . 

In my purview LFIN would be the next SDB....!

Happy Investments

Hi guys,

Investments in stocks does not earn within a days, , months. We have to consider the value based on the current earnings, future earnings potential, external factors, quality of management, historical performance and many other criteria that could influence e financial statements. For example poultry sector is performing well and counter attractions is high. However during last couple of years no body worried to even buy or promote. Bit today it is a different story.

We have invest in stocks when everyone is rejecting. We have to sell when everyone following.That is the basic theory in investing stocks.

Hence price movement downward creates more opportunities to eaen more. Downward percentage based collection tactical method is something I adopt. No one has a perfect method in investing and we have our own methods to succeed. Many seniors in this forum follows different methods unique to them.

Happy Investments

Interest rate is a key concern for e industry. However we had a time period where lending rate was @ 24% - 26%. Interest rate depends upon inflation, exchange rate, etc. Currently we are facing e lowest ever interest rate for thw past decade. We may can experience an increase in interest rate where it could go up to 12% [present rate - 10%] subject to changes in above factors.
However currently all commodity prices are having a falling trend but e exchange rate is on e sidle lines. Considering these factors interest rate could remain constant till e year end.

However evwn if interest rates rises banks have collected enough low cost funds and already expanded the lending portfolio by 15% - 17% yearly. Hence if a rate hike applied they can lend at a slightly higher rate which ultimately earn more profits. Further they can attract more deposits at increased interest rate for future. Same thing occurred when interest rate was falling where everyone believed banks would loose since they have to lend @ lower rates. It is basically assets and liabilities management. Good institutions manage e cost of funds and earnings effectively to increase share holder value. If we look at COMB, SAMP, HNB, LFIN, COCR has perfectly managed it. Improved EPS,DY, Financials, etc are criteria we can measure it. pls look at e LFIN's potential in this topic where they grown its value to share holder in all times.

Further if we look at the gold price, all banks and finance companies in to gold business absorbed loss when they have lend at higher rates. Now they are lending against gold at a lower percentage and less penetrative on that market. Alternatively they concentrate on many diversified lending investments.Not like other businesses banks are sustainable since e portfolio is diversified.
