Gokaldas Exports gets a Year End “Pop”

One of the open secrets of the fund management business is the desire for stocks to have high prices at the year-end as this is used for measuring fund performance and hence the bonuses of the fund managers

Gokaldas Exports, which is approximately 40% owned by Blackstone, offers an amusing lesson

Yesterday, they made an announcement to the Stock Exchanges that they have uploaded a “Management Presentation” on their website.

The deck had this very interesting slide on Q4 revenues/profits…this on the last few days of Q4


The net result is that the stock has hit the upper circuit today.

Mission accomplished.
