Ramesh S damani : Good results, Rs 2 interim dividend.

sanujkadavil : Sir-South Indian bank come out with a bad Q2 numbers. But this was expected due to treasury lossess and provisioning. At current rate stock gives a dividend yield of over 7%.(3 rs dividend expecting next year).Would you add more at these levels ??What's your call on private banks after F.M 's statement on foreign holding and acquisition.Especially the small old private banks like SIB, KTK , BANK OF PUNJAB, ETC….
Ramesh S damani : The Left will oppose it so it is hard to say. I think this year is 50 years of SI Bank they may declare 50% dividend.

Farzana : Sir, The Times of India has bought a stake in Midday Multimedia and have offered 100 Crores to the promoters for 69 % promoters stake. Negotiations are on. If this deal goes through do you think Times be compelled to make an open offer at the same price? What do SEBI guidelines state in this regard, can you sehd some light. The price offered is almost double market valuation which is 58-60 Crores for the promoters stake.
Ramesh S damani : If they do buy it they will have to make an open offer. Synergies would be unlocked with a merger, no doubt.

vikas : GODREJ IND : came out with woinderful result and then today block deal in God consumer which indirectly helps God Ind.Do u think a re rating is on the cards for God ind. sooner than later

kushkatakia : Sir, do you feel that the latest development of Skanska by Ital-Thai Co. buying the Company Assets would augur well for the Company or is it similar event like the previous change in names from Ceminda to Trafalgar to Kvanrnear to Skanska
Ramesh S damani : The company might go private. Otherwise it is a good bet. I own a small amount.

KRR : you call it a chance sir... but such repetative performance is not possible with just a chance... i have been following you consistently for last one and half year and been using my head alongwith your advice (mainly for booking profits)... my money has grown four fold ...

hydinvestor : sir, what do u feel about aegis logistics? Is it still linked to its chemical business? when i checked their website it appears they are still moving chemical materials rather than emerging as a all-purpose logistic company
Ramesh S damani : I think they do chemical supply logistics.

CuriousCarl : Mr.Damani, I've visited the Financial technologies web site and they don't seem to be very impressive compared to say Aztec, Four Soft, Hexaware etc. They don't seem trustworthy. I'm in the IT industry and I can judge a genuine company from a fake one. This seems more like a smoke and mirror show.
Ramesh S damani : I am not sure I would call them that. They are a young company and they have done good work. They are not cheap. But give them some rope.

lovelysunny : SIR I M A STUDENT OF B.COM 1ST YEAR AND A VERY VERY BIG FAN OF YOURS..... YOU ARE A GENIUS SIR..... YOUR VIEWS BASED ON FUNDAMENTALS ARE AWESOME.... THANKS FOR BEING THERE SIR
