Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2021

India is set to see a major overhaul in the trade structure in favor of the organized sector thanks to the governments initiatives such as demonetization and GST, among others. The shift will be prompt for some sectors, gradual for others, and might remain challenging for a few.

Indias plastics industry is one of the biggest in the world. Industry volumes are estimated at 16MMTPA (in FY17), with market size at Rs 1.8 lakh crore. In volume terms, the industry has grown at a CAGR of 10 percent over FY10-17 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.5 percent to 22MMTPA by FY20.

A similar shift is taking place in the plastic industry, Motilal Oswal said in a report. The industry is highly fragmented and numerous unorganized players account for 44 percent of the industry.

Channel checks conducted by the domestic brokerage firm suggests that changes in the administrative procedures under GST using technology platform and effective implementation of the e-way bill are likely to help hasten the shift towards formal trade.

    That’s the same Warren Buffett who snubbed the industry in a 2007 shareholder letter from Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A).

    “The worst sort of business is one that grows rapidly, requires significant capital to engender the growth, and then earns little or no money. Think airlines. Here a durable competitive advantage has proven elusive ever since the days of the Wright Brothers. Indeed, if a farsighted capitalist had been present at Kitty Hawk, he would have done his successors a huge favor by shooting Orville down.”

    ​Finally, Fortinet (Nasdaq: FTNT), a cybersecurity company, fits the profile quite well. I know this company, too — it’s one of the recommendations in my Fast-Track Millionaire advisory. However, I have to agree with the average analyst estimate here: the distance between the current price and the expected target is relatively small; after a near double-digit gain in two months, it’s a “Hold” at this time in Fast-Track Millionaire (and I would wait for a catalyst of some kind before rating this company a “Buy” again). But this is an innovative company in a growth business, and I am glad that today’s screen has pointed out to FTNT as one of the selected few.
