PAPER STOCKS RALLY
Seshasayee Paper, N R Agarwal Industries, JK Paper and West Coast Paper from the paper sector surged up to 115% in Samvat 2074 on the back of robust demand outlook. The Indian paper industry’s EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and ammortisation) margin rose from 11% in FY15 to 15.9% in FY18 despite capacity increases and rise in input costs due to improved pricing scenario, cost advantage of larger players and Chinese ban on certain quality of recovered paper, which reduced prices, analysts say.
