Advantages of Investing in MNC stocks

Advantages of Investing in MNC stocks

MNCs are companies in which the foreign company owns more than 50% of the stock and has management control. MNC stocks are noted for their positive image, solid parentage, technological expertise, and asset-light business practices. These companies are often well-capitalized, have low debt exposures, and provide reasonable dividends. MNCs are present in major areas of the Indian economy and have contributed significantly to its development by bringing in cutting-edge technology. MNCs are renowned for paying substantial dividends to their shareholders, and when the government removed the controversial DDT tax in Budget 2020, MNCs were the biggest beneficiaries.

MNC stocks are typically chosen for the assurance they provide investors about their long-term viability, as investors have more faith in their management than they do in domestic companies.

Should you invest in MNC stocks?

Should you invest in MNC stocks?

When choosing MNCs, look for organizations that have a consistent track record. Apart from the company's history and corporate governance, you should look at the company's sales and profit growth over the last five years, which should be higher than its local competitors. MNC stocks have a reputation for providing large returns. Check common return ratios like Return on Equity and Return on Capital Employed before investing in any MNC stocks.

Investing in MNCs also comes with a number of risks, including regulatory or legal risks, cultural sensitivity, and currency exchange rate volatility. Furthermore, many commoners resent MNCs for the growing trend of ‘Vocal for local,' i.e. using and popularising local products, which may have a long-term impact on MNCs.
