Mr Market is noticing us

A few days back I had pointed out Mr Market's discrepancy in valuing two companies with almost the same kind of business profile. It seems that Mr Market has taken notice of our findings and the discrepancy and gap is reducing. I am talking about valuation gap between Titagarh Wagons and Texmaco. The market capitalization of Titagarh Wagons was 625 Crore at the time of writing previous article compared to 1717 Crore of Texmaco. Now Titagarh Wagon's market cap has gone up to 770 Crore while that of Texmaco has remained stagnant. Thus Titagarh Wagon share price has appreciated by 23.2% and that too in a span of just over three months. Our assumption was that Titagarh is undervalued by around 40% compared to Texmaco and we were expecting a market cap of around 1050 Crore for Titagarh which translates in to share price of around 550. Let's see if we get there or not.
You will not be right simply because a large number of people momentarily agree with you. You will not be right simply because important people agree with you. You will be right, over the course of many transactions, if your hypotheses are correct, your facts are correct, and your reasoning is correct. - Warren Buffett
