Outliers is our in-house screening tool, that helps discover stocks with trends and momentum in their favor. This week, let’s check out one such stock that is India’s largest manufacturer of kitchen and electrical appliances company: Butterfly Gandhimati Appliances.
The company makes LPG stoves, mixer grinders, table-top wet grinders, pressure cookers, and non-stick cookware among other things in a 14,850 crores domestic market, under their decades old brand Butterfly.
The kitchen appliances industry (growing at ~10% a year) has retained its tilt toward unorganized players, but some big players have been able to take their fair share of the market–Hawkins, TTK Prestige, Stove Kraft, and the like. Butterfly Gandhimati itself has a ~11% market share in mixer grinders, a 5% share in pressure cookers, and a ~8% share in gas stove markets in India.
How do the numbers look?
Butterfly Gandhimati and Stove Kraft have grown faster, while TTK Prestige and Hawkins are more profitable.
You might be wondering what the buzz is about, considering there are arguably better plays on the peers’ list.
Here’s what happened
With that in mind, whether the company will hold its own in the intensely competitive industry remains to be seen.
Butterfly Gandhimati is one of many stocks that ranked Grade 10 on the Outliers platform this week.
