1. Co is printing and publishing second largest Hindi daily Hindustan based on total readership. It holds the leading position in Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand and ranks second in UP & Delhi. It also publishes Nandan and Kadambini .
2. Despite of growth of digital media, TV etc. Print media in India continues to grow due to demographic benefit, increased literacy levels, improved penetration and hyper localisation. Hyper localisation and door to door delivery along with cheap newspaper prices will keep Hindi print media and other vernacular languages media to keep growing. Decline of print media is happening in western world but it can be safely presumed that sort of scenario is far away in India for time being.
3. Print Media is growing in India at a rate of 6-7 % with Hindi media and vernacular media out pacing this growth by growing at 8-9%.
4. Hindustan is gaining market share in UP both at expense of market leader and Umar Ujala . It is close third after Umar Ujala. However, advertisement rates of Hindustan are 30-40 % lower as compared to Umar Ujala. Besides, advertisements rates are much lower as compared to English print media. Hindi print media generally caters to rural India, Tier II & Tier III cities. These areas particularly UP & Bihar is being projected as next growth drivers for India and good uptick in advertisement rates in these regions is very much possible.
5. Co has cash and cash equivalent of 965 crore on 31st Dec 2017 which is app. 131 Rs/share.
6. Huge cash on Co books is perceived negative by market as it depresses returns. Co has indicated that it is close to cash pile which it wanted to keep for any inorganic growth and is ready to distribute any extra cash being generated by co but so far management has not walked the talk. Having said that, promoter holding of almost 75 % and high profile of promoters will not lead them to do something stupid with this cash.
7. Recently, due to competition, cover price of newspaper has come down & circulation revenue also fell in Q3 Fy17-18. It has happened despite of circulation volume having risen by 5 %
8. Technically, 50% - 61.8 % retracement of rally from 100-314 lies between 180-210 Rs/share which can act as a support for long term. ( 6 days ago )

Sorry for my message looks strange to read but I am not at fault. MMB is at fault here. Certain important and non abusive words are omitted by MMB. ( 7 days ago )
