Hi Guys....
Odel was a highly recommended share by our forum members. so, I got some odel @ 33.50. But at the moment no any positive signal by this share. Is it better to keep it for some time or exit on a green day without much loss???
Your views highly appreciated..... Thanks

who recommend you to buy ODEL?
its trading around 17 or 18 forward PE ratio

*At a price of Rs. 32.10, ODEL is trading at a FY12E P/E multiple of 17.8x

*FY 12E EPS Rs.-1.81

if you think ODEL is undervalued and it deserves a higher price,then you can consider the buying,its up to you...
btw as to my view-this is overvalued

note-you can have some trading opportunities in this counter due to upcoming season,but do we have to offer such a high PE to this Rolling Eyes

note 2-this may be good for looooong term investors to hold in PF

Yes I agree with you, this share was recommended by some members in this forum, I think 4 weeks back.
You need to under stand the basic values of the share, before buying.
Sorry to say the recommended post was transferred to the expert section.
Joke of the year.
Some other guys also promoting some useless shares in this forum.
Be vigilant.

yea i remember lot of people were FOR this share few weeks ago however do your research before investing please as mark has highlighted this share is a bit overvalued however it does have good growth potential in the future with good leadership and an intent to expand plus a strong brand name (goodwill) in the country however there are other profitable shares to look into at the moment BUT odel will be a good long term investment if u have the patience that is

ODEL, BFL, GRAN, TAFL are all seasonal shares. These shares move during the season, and fall back afterwords.

That has been the trend in the past. Whether it's Christmas, April Holidays, Ramazan.

One has to take some risks in investing @ CSE. P/E and valuations does not work all the time, because we don't have a rational investor community who would invest based on share values.

Therefore I think since you have already collected ODEL, don't dump your shares at a loss. Chances are that ODEL, GRAN and BFL would move up during December.

It was the same situation last year. ODEL was trading @ 32 levels and it went up to 50 during christmas.

The only worry is with a depressed market, we really can't predict anything. Hope things would ease our by December.

Dear Leon when you bought these shares? Hope in Sep.

We cant except a return over night. If so, stock mkt is not the place for you.

If I remember correct the heading was “keep an eye Open on ODEL” nobody ask you to jump & buy.

Any stupid can write anything in the forum, but it’s your
money do your own study before buying. & take your own risk. don’t point
fingers to others if something goes wrong. Even experts can’t predict the
current mkt behavior.

I agree with MARK it’s little bit overvalued. Fundamental along
doesn’t work in CSE

When fundamentally strong share goes down by 20% some crap will appreciate 400%

There are so many other factors to consider.

Personally I’m expecting this share to pass 40 by Dec/Jan. ( If any case if odel trading around 25 that period Please don’t say CHASE said this will pass 40 )

My advice is don’t panic & sell. I expect you can at least cover
your cost by Dec/Jan

good luck & please take your own decision

its trading around 17 or 18 forward PE ratio

Dear Mark ! no offence but you should read more !! In the business world where all da strategies change time to time , we all should read articles and should be updated. PE is no longer a valuable value in the modern investment strategies. and PE doesn't give any indication whether the share s good or not. This ratio started to use in 90s effectively but IBM proved in 2003 that this is a fail way of measuring whether the shares s over/under valued.

anyway if u google, u will managed to gain more information..

y dont u teach us the negative values of ODEL.N ?? LOL..

Here re the positive values of ODEL :

1.
ODEL reported moderate earnings growth for 1HFY12, +21% YoY to Rs. 122.2m,supported by 1) steady top line growth (+13% YoY) boosted by increased sales volumes across all brands; and 2) a significant reduction in income tax expenses (-51% YoY), following a decrease in the corporate tax rate from 35% to 28% coupled with a reversal in deferred tax provision. Net margins remained flat at 7%.

2.
Group turnover reached Rs. 1.7bn in 1HFY12, +13% YoY, driven primarily by increased sales volumes as a result of stable growth in same store sales coupled with contribution from newly opened stores in Kandy and Wattala. Gross margins remained broadly stable during the quarter at 39% (vs. 38% in 1HFY11), while operating margins dipped slightly to 11% (vs. 13% in 1HFY11) due to an increase in both administrative and distribution expenses, +30% YoY and 19% YoY respectively. Management attributes the increase in operating expenses to 1) higher promotional and advertising costs related to new store openings; 2) investment in knowledge capital (as part of the company’s strategy of benchmarking itself against international competition in terms of store layouts, service levels, ambience, etc); and 3) an increase in head count, in-line with the expansion in store count.

3.
Finance expenses rose sharply in 1HFY12, +53% YoY to Rs. 44.7m, as the company incurred additional bank borrowings in order to fund its store expansion.

4.
The company plans to further extend its retail reach over the medium term through a series of well-timed store openings in urban and semi urban cities in Colombo and outstation cities. It intends to open three new stores during the year, taking its total store count to 19 outlets by end Dec 2011. Despite its relatively aggressive capital expenditure plans, ODEL maintains a healthy balance sheet with Rs. 15m in cash and bank balances as at 1HFY12. Its gearing ratio was 74% as at end September 2011.

5.
ODEL’s 1HFY12 inventory turnover reduced to 1.7x (lower than the FY11 value of 2.5x) as the company has begun to hold inventory for its two new Kandy stores, which are scheduled to be opened later this year. Its receivables collection period amounted to 21 days in 1HFY12, while its payment period was 56 days, taking its cash operating cycle to ~183 days.

OUTLOOK :

Project Sri Lanka’s fashion retail market to record a strong growth trajectory over 2012-16E, driven by favourable operating conditions in the country. Domestic demand should see a sharp upturn, as rising disposable incomes and higher affluence levels

ODEL has, in our view, successfully established a unique brand identity in Sri Lanka’s highly fragmented fashion retail industry, and hence does not have any close competitors in the overall market in terms of scale, ambience, and quality/range of clothing offered. As such, we believe it should be a prime beneficiary of the projected industry growth

Given the company’s strong growth potential, we conservatively project FY12E full year earnings to reach Rs. 262m (+25% YoY), with a strong pickup in sales volumes during 3QFY12 which is typically the strongest quarter for the company. This translates to an FY12E EPS of Rs. 1.81.

At a price of Rs. 32.10, ODEL is trading at a FY12E P/E multiple of 17.8x, at a 34% premium to the FY12E sector average of 13.3x. We believe a slight premium to the sector is warranted, given the company’s superior competitive positioning in Sri Lanka’s fast growing fashion retail market.

Source : ( JKSB report + Own )

please enlighten me with negative values.. so we can discuss directly rather than actin like kids and posting "wannaB" comments.

Leon u hv 2 hold it ntil december...thr r positive chances 4 this share 2 move up...it happened in last december alzo..
Fundamentals dont work as it is in CSE...
Bt ODEL sales must hv been gone down as their prices r now very high n they hv a selected group of customers...they invested their IPO money on Battaramulla branch bt if u go there u cn see they dnt hv 2mch customers now even during weekends....instead go 2 NOLIMIT n check....
so if u r a long term investor itz jst nt enough waiting 4 company financial reports 2 come out...u must visit da plce u r interested of buyin shares...

I personally consider Odel to be a good company. As we all know Sri Lanka will most likely be one of the top tourist destinations. Naturally shopping is a part of travel and tourism. Just think to yourself, how much money you spend on the air tickets, hotel/accommodation and shopping. Usually my shopping bill is higher than the first two. What you buy may be expensive or cheaper than your home country, but you continue to shop until you drop.

Government want to make Sri Lanka shopping destination that's why most of the duties relating to electronics goods have been slashed, that's why softlogic strategy of getting welknown brands like Giardano and other would be handy in the long run. This is why I think Singer Sri Lanka is better than Singer Industries.

Although Odel cannot be compared to some of the smallest shopping malls in the world but it has created goodwill among tourists, good value chain and reasonably good brand name.

1.Download Financial Reports , Study { CSE.lk }
2.Visit bloomberg.com ,
-Analyse { http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/quote?ticker=ODEL:SL }
3.Visit DU Invest ,
-Analyse { http://lk.duinvest.com/portal/LKCSE/stockOverview.html?goToHomePageParam=true&stockId=5866 }

Ya me too saw this thread in expert chamber sometime ago,it seems a moderator with common sense moved this back to the stock market talk,its funny we see such kind of behaviors in this forum...
its like suiciding when recommending shares in downtrend like this,when bull activates everyone is a great predictor,but you will find one or two ppl who can predict short runs in a bear market.

I just moved the article to the Expert Chambers coz I think there is a good and professional discussion going on about this share. Expert chamber carries articles of good response and wider interest need not necessarily be a buy recommendation.

PE is no longer a valuable value in the modern investment strategies. and PE doesn't give any indication whether the share s good or not. This ratio started to use in 90s effectively but IBM proved in 2003 that this is a fail way of measuring whether the shares s over/under valued.

anyway if u google, u will managed to gain more information..




We all agree PE is not one and only one instrument to determine the stock value.
Please see the following
No of Shares 144.95 million
NAV=11.79
Cash Balance -339.95 million
Dividend Paid last FY - 0.50
Forwarded PER around 18.98 ( as at 28/10/2011 share price 32.00)
ROE (Forcast) - around 18%

Now decide at this price this stock is under valued/ over valued?
For me this is still over value.

At Profit before tax level when you compare half yearly results current year is negative 7% compared to last year. Also their increase in cash and cash equivalent is also negative 158Mn. Top line growth is 14% but if you allow for inflation i don't think there is much of a real growth here as well. I think with their expansions one would have expected a higher increase in the top line. Even if we forget about the PE ratio other than the fact that the company is in a growth sector i also cant see a compelling reason for this share to be attractive. However as CSE had number of unexplainable rallies this could also go up.

There are some very interesting arguments for and against the stock. Also some very valid defending that the value of any stock in the end depends on its profitability - everything else is "noise". The PE ratio is very good measure, sure its not perfect, but its better than anything else at showing where things are with any particular share.

With regards to Odel, I made my own decision not to invest after visiting some of the stores. If all the stores had the same sort of visitor numbers as the main store, then I would have bought. But the reality is that there is hardly anyone at the other stores - at least when I have visited. So, as a single store it has been a great success, but as a chain I just don't think it has performed. That's purely based on my own personal, non-scientific view. So, if the future growth strategy is all about more and more new stores and all the investment, management focus is going into that, then I think the prospects are bleak.

I am very interested in what others have experienced when they have visited stores other than the flag ship store at eye hospital junction which is packed.

presently there is know buying trigger based on my technicals.but looks a bargain purchasing in anticipation of higher prices.so imo it looks as if most of the traders are buying into the rumour,which is not good.as someone noted in previous post that buying at 20 also would be based on this theory.right now if you throw 100ma to the daily chart the current prices are well below that line unless price moves above it will not be of any interest.all what i have done is grid trading until this price moves above 100ma. Very Happy this is a bit risky though. Suspect

Sri Lanka’s retail fashion industry is signaling an evolution supported by many developments taking place in the local market including the entry of select international fashion brands, says ODEL PLC.

Odel, the country’s leading fashion retailer made announced this observation while commenting on its latest annual report.

It also points out that this situation signals that Sri Lanka’s retail industry is maturing.

According to Ruchi Gunawardena, the Chairman of the listed ODEL PLC, many international retailers are looking to enter the local market.

“The entry of international brands to the market is as a result of the growth in tourism as well as an increase in consumer spending”, added ODEL.

It believes that producing a large number of fashion designers through well-established design schools too has helped this evolution.

“A select few of these designers have established fashion labels and have had their collections featured at forums such as Colombo Fashion Week as well as in regional and international fashion events”, added ODEL.

ODEL perceives this upsurge in talent and the entry of international brands as a future promise for the industry.

The fashion retailer also observes that the commerce between Sri Lankan designers, retailers and consumers is definitely gaining more ground.

ODEL, which has achieved a net profit of Rs. 202 million during the year 2011/2012 believes, that these latest trends translate into healthy competition for the retailer.

ODEL was found by model turned entrepreneur Otara Gunawardena who has first set up her shop in the boot of her car.

Look at their target market and the pricing strategy and ehere they have opened their show rooms. Only the flagship showroom is packed as KIWI mentioned.

They have to seriously look at the other retail showrooms performance
