Booked profits in Bharat Electronics (BEL)

In my last post I had written about my recent buys (https://writingoptions.wordpress.com/2014/08/27/my-recent-buys/). I had mentioned about Bharat Electronics (BEL). It was clear beneficiary of composite FDI+FII limit being raised to 49 percent. Usually I don’t like PSU’s and don’t invest in them. I firmly believe they are inefficient allocator of capital. But BEL was a good trading buy at that point of time. Company had 5-6k crore cash on books, MCap was 16k crore and close to 1k crore of annual profits. Stripped of cash company was available at 10 PE.

Recently BEL has rallied sharply to hit high of 3140 on Friday(5th Dec) but closed lower at 2894. I think stock has moved too sharply and valuations are also not as attractive as earlier. I have booked profits in BEL for now and will look to re-enter at lower levels.
