Q4FY12 results of Reliance Industries Ltd
RIL maintains its unbeatable track-record of profit making since more than a decade; Q4FY12 net at Rs.4,236 Cr; the total income jumps by 18.87% to Rs 87,477 Cr.; Improvement is seen in GRM, speaking sequentially. Disappointment on the upstream segments have been carefully (and cleverly) made up by treasury income!! The stock is all set to move up from next week!! 
But how much are these results facts or fiction, that some "cramming and ramming analysts" spent so much time doing postmortem on these figures or they have to be given so much importance? The RIL will probably move up if Anil Ambani wants it to is as simple as that.......!! Like the reasons why water drops are spherical, any majority shareholder would generally look for using minimum resources, to jack up the share price of the company concerned. Which essentially means, when a bull market starts, it is easy to make a share move up than when there is either no direction or it is a bear market. So, in this context did you get my point? Also, what are the free cash in the balance sheet for? Any idea? Guess!! I think you have found from my clue!! Besides, I do not know people can predict the future of a company looking at the past result!! Some of these insane analysts needs to be treated in mental Hospitals, before they become rabid and start biting people!! 
One of them who probably thinks himself to be a "Shakespeare of RIL", said, "Definitely, the GRM is better. Nobody was expecting GRM to cross USD 7 per barrel. This quarter we have seen the crude prices going up. They had USD 6.8 per barrel GRM in Q3. So, definitely this includes some inventory gain also". 
Hey man, if you had some idea about the petroleum cycle, then you would understand that GRM, depends on many factors and inventory gain is one of those factors. GRM is the difference between crude oil price and total value of petroleum products produced by the refinery. So, if the crude is  being imported from outside and if the INR depreciates against the USD, then the GRM could go down.....isn't it? Or I am wrong? Again if labour cost or the cost of carrying crude falls or there is a fall in the charges of offshore drilling services, then the GRM could increase....isn"t it? Now what if the prices of additive like butane (C4H10 or in a simple way C2H5) and ethanol (C2H5OH) increases? Will it not affect the GRM of the refining companies? Moreover, GRM also to some extent depends on how complex a given refinery is (Nelson Complexity factor)--so here the quality of crude is also a factor....Higher Nelson Complexity of a refinery enables it to process sour (or low quality) crude which gives a better GRM, due to price differential of crude between sweet crude and sour crude. Sweet and sour depend on sulphur content of crude oil---sweet has <0.5% sulphur while sour crude has >0.5%....There are many such instances!! So, these marketmen, should refrain from making such blanket statements!! All people are not morons, that anyone who speaks from the other side of the camera has to be believed!! The same person says, "If you see the profit after tax (PAT), I am unable to understand that in spite of the improvement in GRM, the PAT, which was estimated to be Rs 4,300 crore, is at Rs 4,236 crore. That indicates that probably the petchem has taken more hit than what it was expected. From hereon, analyst will start taking a call on FY13 EPS estimates of the company, which in my view is likely to be at about Rs 55-56 per share". 
Uffffffffff..............How much does the price of a share depend on the EPS??!! Moreover, many companies generally declare good or bad results depending on market conditions---so why waste time in these figures too much....!! Hey man!! You will understand if you read between the lines....and if after more than two decades in the market, you do not understand such simple things, then it is better to open a "Pan/Cigarette shop or buy an auto rickshaw for living"---that will be better. I am thinking of opening a blog, to "Analyze the Analysis of some so-called analysts". Really India has some Bizarre Finance Ministers/RBI teams and equally Stupid-analysts"!!
