    2011 was the best performing year for Horana Plantation and when rubber price went up Kegalle recorded the best performance in the same year

    2011 performance was represented in Market Price of the share and long term players have to avoid such best performing years when the performance deviates from the normal pattern..

    Net Assets Per share was also moving in a steady growth pattern and it makes this company's share price to move in a steady but slow upward trend.

    If you can avoid bubbles created like in 2011 Horana is a good selection for long term investors..

    Debt to equity levels are also not threatening to the ability to declared dividends..

    Goodone YK, Don't you think KGAL is the best plantation company in the mkt? I remeber FG analysis of ELPL, which is also good. Since this is long term, I believe KGAL would give better return...

    Jana

    What is the best Plantation company is a qualitative question where the answer will be subjective to the way we evaluate ...

    Kahawatta is good but for me I dont accumulate the shares of companies that dont pay dividends..

    For me TPL is good..
    Namun is well balanced
    Kegalle will boost when natural price shoot up..
    HOPL is fairly ok
    Hpau is not my selection so is Maskeliya due to lack of dividends..

    If you are not a dividend hunter Kahawatta is ok...

    I like to evaluate few more plantation companies then to evaluate the industry as a whole..

    FG seems to be correct

    Kegalle was performing above average in the plantation EPS for many years , even though TPL is leading now as  rubber price is low..

    However if you compare Plantation sector with other industries you will find Plantation revenue is some what stagnant..

    The underlying factor is SL total production of Tea is rather stagnant..

    As I have mentioned earlier the Revenue of Plantation sector is beyond its control..

    (Revenue= Quantity*Price)

    But in other industries where both Q and P is within the control of a company the growth is depending on the efficiency of the management..

    Just have a look at following graph..That include best food and beverage company, manufacturing company and a finance company against entire plantation sector..

    Now if you identify that plantations are not following the growth momentum of other companies , why should investors buy plantations including me?

    Companies where growth is low but enjoy high market share , are Cash Cows..They generated good dividends..

    Having such cash cows in your portfolio gives you cash inflows to be utilized wisely..

                    2017

    Even though plantation sector could recover by the latter part of 2016, not all companies of the industry could perform as usual. HOPL is a company miserably missed the gains .
