The cement sector struggled a lot in the previous year but after the announcement of this year’s budget cement sector was seen to have a positive impact which can be seen in LUCKY cement too.
EPS in 2018, 2019, and 2020 was 37.72, 32.44, and 10.34 respectively. It is a good value as we see. There was a sudden dip in EPS when the COVID restrictions were imposed but after the recent budget, it is predicted that the EPS of the company will increase. Other than this in Twelve trailing month period, the EPS is 37.41 which is good.
Net profit and gross profit margins can be seen decreasing but this does not properly indicate that whether LUCKY cement is a good investment or not. The decrease in net and gross profit is because of the debts taken by LUCKY cement which can be a negative point from investors’ point of view.
