1. BSE Ltd is an oldest stock exchange in Asia and currently holds global No.1 ranking in terms of highest number of companies listed, and rank No.10 in world by market capitalisation. BSE is a professionally managed with capable management team with diverse revenue source, management team is trying hard to improve its market share in equity. The company has 13% market share in equity cash while in currency and interest rate derivatives it has 46% and 41% respectively. In emerging segment like Mutual fund business it has 76% market share through its STAR MF platform. With equities as an asset class is getting more acceptances among Indian savers the scope for higher transaction in stock exchanges and mutual fund platform are high. It has strong balance sheet with huge cash and bank balance which implies higher other income will continue in future. Due to surplus cash in balance sheet, the company is doing market buyback of its own shares. Till date company has bought back 16.79 lakh shares at an average price of 815 and has used 82.5% of its earmarked buy back amount. Dividend payout is expected to be good in coming years as capital requirement in future is less. Also BSE has applied for commodity commodity exchange business and likely to start in latter part of current financial year once it gets approval. Currently BSE is trading around 20 times trailing twelve month earnings which appears cheap considering its growth potential and cash in balance sheet. We expect profitability from core business to improve consistently in coming years and advise investors to buy at current market price.
