Just let me show two nice examples of the business journey of two different countries.

SL. 1. Harischandra Mills
SK  2. Samsung

Both companies start as the same selling dry fish, noodles, and other groceries.

Mr. C.A. Harischandra founded the Company in 1943, Matara, Sri Lanka, with an initial capital of R.S. 25,000/- on a land area of 20 perches.

The first activities of the Company were the milling of rice, kurakkan and other grains. By 1952, the business had expanded into various other fields including the milling of coconut oil.

The business carried out by Mr. Harischandra was incorporated in Sri Lanka under the Companies Ordinance No. 51 of 1938 on the 9th day of January 1953.

In addition, being a pioneer industry in the south of the country, the Company became a pioneer in another field by allotting in 1959 forty percent of its shares to its employees.

In 1983 the Company was listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange.

The Company at present, is the market leader in the sales of noodles, coffee, kurakkan flour, ulundu flour and has an appreciable market share in rice flour, laundry bar soap and blue washing soap.

Samsung started in 1938 as a company selling dried Korean fish, vegetables and fruit to Manchuria and Beijing.
This is how Samsung looked like 74 years ago when they started.

One reason is lack of focus on manufacturing.

some 20 years after its foundation, the company switched to selling flour mills and confectionery machines, which was the fundamental turn of the company towards technology products.
Throughout the course of their early operation, Samsung invested in a clothing company, acquired a Swiss watch company and even negotiated acquisition of a Dutch aircraft maker Fokker, thereby showing interest in a variety of industries.
Still successful, today Samsung sells a very wide range of consumer electronics.

When a company is highly illiquid its price is easy to remain at higher levels with higher PE ratios..
