Presidential Elections: Support Dr.Meira Kumar

Bihar and Jharkhand governments have no choice but to support Dr.Meira Kumar. As defeat of "Bihar ki Beti" in the hands of "UP ka Beta", will invariably bring Shame to the Biharis and Jharkhandis. So, Nitish Kumar has very little option left but to support, Dr.Meira Kumar. This might also probaly correct some of the historical mistakes of not making her father, the Prime Minister of India.

Also, I don't think all the Muslim and Christian MPs and MLAs from the TDP and TRS will ever support a RSS backed Candidate, who acted against Dalit Christian and Muslin reservations. Therefore, invariably cross voting will take place, which might give the underdog, Ms.Kumar, a win. Support Dr.Meira Kumar and make her the 2nd Female President of India.

All the best to Dr.Meira Kumar...

Tulip Telecom Ltd: Annual Report For FY13
In case of Tulip Telecom Ltd (Rs.7,71), its flagship Data Center commenced operation only in 4QFY12 against earlier guidance / project of 3QFY12. This has probably brought in some trouble in the company in the short term. 

Last year (CY12) Tulip Telecom Ltd booked orders worth Rs.6 bn (Rs.600 Cr) for 5 years for 30,000 sq ft. The company has achieved financial closure for its funding requirement of Rs.5bn over a 3-year period. It has already got visibility of ~40% of usable capacity. Tulip Telecom Ltd's Fibre segment is enabling higher wallet share per customer driven by expanded product and service offerings. Therefore, the key triggers for the stock would be: 
  • Stake sale in data center subsidiary. It debt increased during the last couple of years, basically, due ongoing expansion in both NLD & Data Centre space.
  • Higher-than-expected growth in business. Till February, 2012, its order book was whopping Rs.2700 Crores.
  • Besides, the the reduction in capex from FY14, an expected lower interest rate in the coming quarters and restructuring of its loans is likely to provide the much needed cushion on interest burden going forward and improve return ratios.
Also, with the improved outlook in the Indian Telecom,  the cash flow from the going concern is expected to improve considerably in the coming quarters.
