Tanla Solutions looks like a decent IT Enabled Services company. But like Warren Buffett I too do not understand technology companies too well. Please look at the market snapshot of Tanla share:
The price to earnings ratio of 43.3 is very high and the share looks very expensive to buy. Price to Book Value Ratio of 0.89 looks attractive. Dividend Yield of 0.35 is negligible and unacceptable. Market capitalisation of Rs.577.93 crores is too small.
|Tanla Solutions Share's price movements graph of past five years|
The five year price graph shows price continuously climbing and does not bestow any special market advantage for buying.
|Tanla Solutions Share's returns or price increase in the last five years|
Five years return on the share of 852.50% shows steep appreciation, again not providing any special buying advantage.
The company started making profits only for the last two years and for at lest three years preceding them the company incurred losses.
I have not investigated the company/ share thoroughly as with this background I am not convinced about investing in the Tanla scrip and I shall not recommend you invest too.
