Should you buy these beaten down shares?

Should you buy these beaten down shares?

To begin with the list will show a lot of names from the FMCG and the pharma space. In fact, even stocks like Hindustan Unilever are not very far away from 52-week lows. The FMCG sector especially players like HUL and Colgate have been hit hard by rising input costs. Unlike autos where one can easily pass on the rise in raw material costs to consumers, it’s hard to suddenly raise prices for FMCG players as rural demand could be impacted.

For decades we had seen multinational FMCG companies seeing heavy valuations and things seen to be turning now. Stocks like SBI cards are unlikely to do amazingly well in the coming days, given that the payments mechanism has evolved and it’s become a fiercely competitive market with the UPI payment systems on.

These stocks good be a good bet for their dividends

Shares of Castrol India and Gillette India could be good bets for stock pickers. Both are virtually debt free companies with a decent track record of paying dividends. In fact, for Castrol India the dividend works to as high as 4.4%, which is not bad for a multinational company. With a price to earnings of less than 20 times, the stock is not a bad bet.

As far as the other stocks are concerned, we would advise caution especially on stocks like SBI Cards. Being nearer to 52-week lows, does nogt always make the share price attractive. So, invest with caution.
