We ran a short poll a few days back, asking which of the following companies have the highest market capitalization, and these were the results.
Tata Steel: 28%
Adani Green: 26%
Ultratech Cement: 11%
Interestingly, Adani green is the largest by Market Capitalization here, at Rs 3 lakh crore. Maruti is second, with Rs 2.5 lakh crore, and then we have the other 2 – Tata Steel being the smallest at Rs 1.3 lakh crore.
At the time of writing of this post, Adani Green is the 15th largest company in India by Market Cap, and has the highest Price to Sales Ratio in all companies in India with a market Cap > Rs 100,000 Crore. There are 49 companies in India at this point with Market Cap > Rs 100,000 crore. Infact, Adani Green has the second lowest sales in these top 49 companies in India.
Consider this: These are some of the companies which are smaller in Market Cap than Adani Green at this point – L&T, Maruti, Axis Bank, Titan.
The following companies’ market cap is less than half the market cap of Adani Green – Tata Steel, NTPC, Hindalco, M&M.
You get the gist. Of course – the business can deliver value in future, and that is what the stock prices show. Markets seem to believe in the alternative energy theme worldwide, but it is interesting to see the valuations. Maybe the company is able to be the breakthrough company in this space in future. Do remember though, that the risks are also in future, and the more you pay for future expectations, the higher risks you entail.
