Top Five Navaratnas Of India

| 8/10/2012 7:00 PM Friday

After last week’s slideshow on India’s top five ‘Maharatnas’ status companies, we are continuing the subject with the top five Navaratnas. We have categorised the companies according to their market capitalisation. The difference between a Maharatna and a Navaratna company is that the former needs to be listed on the bourses, while the same is not applicable in case of the Navaratnas. However, in all, there are 14 Navaratna companies, of which only one company i.e., Hindustan Aeronautics is not listed, while the rest are listed on the bourses.

The benefits that the Navaratna companies get include the autonomy of Rs 1,000 crore, when they have to take any investment-related decision. Of these five companies, only NMDC has a government stake to the tune of 90 per cent, while the other four have government stake below 80 per cent. All of them are somewhat related to the energy sector either by dint of manufacturing equipment (BHEL) or energy transmission (Gail, Power Grid) or mining (NMDC and Oil India). Except for BHEL, all the other stocks in this list have been trading in the positive at the time of writing this report. Two companies from this list, namely BHEL and GAIL, have also applied for Maharatna status, the approvals being still under consideration.

The company has consistently paid dividend of Rs 2.15 for the last many years. For the latest quarter i.e. March 2012, the company has reported subdued numbers.

The dividend that it paid in FY12 was lesser than the earlier years due to the worrisome outlook for the capital goods’ sector. On an YTD basis this scrip is down by 3 per cent.

Power Grid Corporation India Ltd.

Power Grid Corporation (PGCIL) is the country’s largest power transmission company. It is responsible for inter-state transmission of electricity in India and owns and operates over half of the transmission network in the country.

As for the CMP, it has a dividend yield of 2 per cent which provided the government a total dividend of Rs 658 crore in FY12. In that same year the company reported total revenues of Rs 10,035 crore with net profit of Rs 3,255 crore.

Of the total shareholding, the government currently holds 57.34 per cent of the shares. If GAIL gets the Maharatna status it has applied for, it will give it better financial autonomy. For FY12 the topline of the company increased by 24 per cent to Rs 40,397 crore while the bottomline of the company grew by a meagre 2 per cent to Rs 3,653 crore. The current dividend yield of the stock is more than 2 per cent.
