  • Lumax Industries Limited currently trades at a higher Price/Book ratio (1.81) than its peer median (1.44).
  • The market expects 517206-IN to grow at about the same rate as the peers and to maintain the median returns it currently generates.

  • Compared with its chosen peers, the company’s annual revenues and earnings change at a slower rate, implying a lack of strategic focus and/or lack of execution success.
  • 517206-IN‘s return on assets currently and over the past five years has trailed the peer median and suggests the company might be operationally challenged relative to its peers.
  • The company’s median gross margin and relatively low pre-tax margin suggest high operating costs versus peers.
  • 517206-IN‘s revenue growth in recent years and current PE ratio are both around their respective peer medians suggesting that historical performance and long-term growth expectations for the company are largely in sync.
  • The company’s capital investment seems appropriate for a business with peer median returns.
