What are the prospects for Sterling Technologies’ share price?

The company has a market capitalization of over INR 17,000 crores (as of March 15, 2023) and has consistently delivered strong financial performance over the years. However, the attractiveness of any stock investment option depends on various factors such as the investor’s risk appetite, investment horizon, financial goals, market conditions, and the company’s future prospects.

The ROCE (return on capital employed) of Sterlite is 9.0%. It is relatively low, especially compared to the sector’s average, which is 20%. What are the trends of ROCE movements in this venture? Five years ago, it was 34% and has now decreased. There may be several explanations behind that. If the company invests in growth, the extra capital may lead to a short-term reduction in ROCE.

However, some of the other metrics aren’t that positive. Sterling Technologies’ current liabilities have increased over the last five years to 61% of total assets. That can pose additional risks. Moreover, the stock price has declined by 11.76% in the last year.

Despite the fact that the company’s revenue grew for the last two quarters, and in FY 2022 the revenue growth amounted to 19.42%, its annual profit after tax decreased by 77.51% over the same fiscal year. In relation to this trend, the Sterling Technologies share price dipped by 10.45% year-to-date, and 6.49% over the last month.

On the other hand, Sterling Technologies’ share price has remained relatively stable since September 2022. Those who invest in this company probably cannot expect price jumps, but the risk to lose value is not high either.

final word

Sterling Technologies isn’t earning the highest return at the moment. But if its investments go well, it may offer a stock’s growth in the long term, and therefore it could be an attractive investment option for those who are looking for medium-term or long-term investments.
