In view of the above, we would advise investors to stay away, though we believe that full divestment is unlikely by the Government of India in Balmer Lawrie and Co. The stock is also listed on the BSE only. The price to book value, the p/e ratio are all good, but, then it is just a holding company, which receives only dividend income. We are also very unsure what would happen to the company, when Balmer Lawrie and Company divestment takes place.
