How Hero MotoCorp Started?

How Hero MotoCorp Started?

Hello friends, today I'm going to discuss a popular and world's largest two-wheeler vehicle manufacturing brand - Hero MotoCorp and how it started? This corporation was founded by Brijmohan Lal Munjal along with his two brothers even before the independence of India. He dreamt of making a successful two-wheeler that could be a comfortable and cheap facility for the poor for transportation. But he did not have enough money to make his dream come true. And thus, he started selling parts of the cycle. You must be wondering how could a person establish such a big manufacturing company with a background of selling cycle parts. So let's get to know the success story of Hero group.

The story starts with the birth of Brijmohan Lal Munjal in 1923 in the undivided country of India. Years later, with his two brothers, he came to Amritsar and somehow managed to get a stall for selling cycle parts. With time and growth of the business, he gathered some money. Then, he established a small company named Hero Cycles company at Ludhiana where he made chains and other parts of cycles. The next year, they got the license from the Govt. in order to manufacture cycle parts. With a loan of 6 lakhs from the govt., Hero group started manufacturing cycles. It faced troubles at the start but then, its production increased to 7500 cycles a year.

In 1975, Hero cycles became the largest cycle manufacturing company in India. Soon, they tried hard to export and sell the cycles in foreign markets. And to their luck, by 1986, Hero cycles became the largest cycle manufacturer in the whole world. And that year, the company name was written in the Guinness book of world records. Today, the company manufacturers as many as 19000 cycles a day.

After reaching a successful peak with cycles, the company started making motorcycles. Then it merged with Japan's Honda company to manufacture cycles. A new plant was established in Haryana and then they launched the first motorcycle with the name Hero Honda. This motorcycle gained a hell lot of popularity among the mass.

During 1985-2002, almost 86 lakhs motorcycles were sold. After attaining new heights in the world of manufacturing, Hero Honda decided to separate in August 2011.Then, Hero group looked forward to turning its name to Hero MotorCorp.  In 2015, Brijmohan Lal Munjal breathed his last after setting a history. Now, 46% of Indians use Hero bikes.

Should You Buy Yes Bank Now?

Should You Buy Yes Bank Now?

Hello friends and welcome to the amazing adviser. There are a lot of speculations and rumors regarding Yes Bank and people are almost asking daily what to do in Yes Bank's share, should they buy or just avoid. Most of the experts are recommending avoid this stock. But I have something more for you. So here I am going to give you 3 reasons that are arguing should you buy Yes Bank now?

Reason 1: Attractive P/E valuation

This is one of the common factors which I personally check whenever I buy or analysis a stock's fundamental. Remember we are here to buy good stocks at the cheap price and sell them at a higher price. P/E is an excellent tool to measure it. Normally it indicates the price you earn buy Investing. You can understand it in the following chart.

Yes Bank's current market p/e is 10.09 whereas industry p/e is 32.47. Rule of thumb is when stock's P/E is less than industry P/E then it indicates a buy because the stock is trading at lower valuations. But it is not correct at all the time because if a stock has no fundamental then P/E will automatically low. Things are different in case of YES Bank as it is not only a sound business from a fundamental perspective but also enjoys a good brand image in the industry despite the disputes which is currently going on its ownership.

Reason 2: Growth Story

This is the second reason which is suggesting that you should think to invest in this stock. Without any delay let's see the performance of this stock in terms of EPS and Total Income.

(Total Income figures are in crores.)

From the chart, I think I don't have to explain anything more. You can clearly see the performance. Apart from 2014-15 Yes bank has managed to grow its EPS more than 20% per annum. Do you think just because of the dispute which is going on in Kapoor's family will anyway hamper the business performance of Yes Bank? Clearly No. This is the biggest reason to buy YES Bank.

Reason 3: Consistent Dividend Yield

The dividend is given to shareholders as a part of appropriation of income of the company. Yes, the bank is consistently giving a dividend to its shareholders from last eight years. So this is a good sign for any company. At the current price, you will get dividend at the rate of 1.38% which is not bad.

"Without risk, there is no return." If you understand this line then you should continue reading this article because there is no point if you are not willing to take the risk for a good return. According to me, Yes Bank is good bet which will give yo u handsome return in long term. Even the founder of this company tweeted that he will not even sell a single share of this company and pass the legacy to the next generation. So if you want to choose a stock for your children or grandchildren then this is the perfect time to select this stock.

I am not saying that this stock will go immediately up, it can go down. But this is the game. You never know what will happen the next day but you can predict with a solid analysis, that's what I'm trying to do.

Don't invest more than 5% of your total portfolio in this stock, as it is the general rule of investing.

(Disclaimer- I have this stock in my portfolio.)

The story begins with the birth of Tom Monaghan in Michigan, America. Due to the early death of his father, he had to spend most of his childhood days in an orphanage and in his relative's house. But anyhow, he completed his high school education. But he had bigger dreams. So he started doing small jobs wherever he could and gathered some money. Then, with his brother, he opened a small pizza shop named Dominic's Pizza. But after 8 months, his brother James left working in the pizza shop as he was involved in a different job too. After being left alone, Tom faced many difficulties. 

But soon, he started home delivery service and his sales increased to 8 times. Gradually, he added different types of pizzas to his menu which were loved by the customers. In 1965, Tom expanded his business by registering the company name to Domino's Pizza. The same year, he opened two more stores. Later, the three dots on the company logo were designed basing the three stores. A few years later his first store caught fire and he had to bear huge loss. However, instead of pointing his destiny, he opened five more stores the same year.

During the 1970s, due to some judicial issues and product quality issues, the sales went down. However, Tom was not a person who'd give up easily. And after solving all the issues, he came up with a new concept of 30 minutes delivery due to which the sales record touched heights again. By then, it had around 200 stores. Later, the first international store was started in Canada. And if we talk about today, then there are almost 11,000 stores in 75 countries. From 2007, it started online ordering service.

So, fighting together or fighting alone doesn't matter. All that matters is Fighting. If you're a great fighter, you don't need people to stand with you. You can stand alone and fight with equal power.

Inspirational Story Of SONY, The Japanease Giant

Hello friends, today I'm going to discuss one of the most popular Japanese Multinational Corporations - Sony. It is such a famous company that people blindly believe its products by its name. And why not? There is hardly any product that would dissatisfy the customers. When it comes to the sound system, Sony stands out of the crowd.

According to 2016, Sony is the fifth largest television manufacturing company in the world. The whole world of Sony is divided into various groups like Sony pictures, Sony finance services, Sony Mobile etc. Now let's get to know the success story of Sony from the beginning.

The story started with the World War when Ibuka and Morita two men were following their dreams. Ibuka was running a radio repair shop in Tokyo when he met Morita, 13 yrs younger to Ibuka. Then, both of them decided to start a business. And then taking a loan of 500 dollars, they started Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation. The first product they made was Rice Cooker. There they got a profit of only 300 dollars and the product wasn't successful. Next, in 1950, they launched a tape recorder. Due to less knowledge of its usage, people didn't purchase it. So, Ibuka and Morita distributed the product freely among customers and explained its usage. 

Gradually, they started getting big orders from Corporate Companies. And from then, the company began to rise. But the Japanese name of the company was difficult for corporations to send to other countries. Thus, the company was renamed as Sony. The word Sony comes from two words - Sound and Sonny. In 1955, due to launch of Transistor Radio, the company sales increased much. After inventing many more types of equipment, it launched a walkman. It became extremely popular all over the world.

However, during 80s, Sony faced a loss in business due to many reasons. But it fought back. It launched CD player and first video camera in 1982. And if we talk of today, Sony is famous for TV, smart phone, video recorder, Playstation, Sound system and laptops.

In 1997 and 1999, Ibuka and Morita left the world. Now, Kaz Hirai is the CEO of Sony and Sony continues to work upon new inventions for the future.

The hardware of Nokia was termed to be very durable. And as it was the very first mobile phone for most of the people, it was somewhere attached with the emotions of the people. No matter for how many years it ruled the market, till now people have the same amount of trust on the brand. So let's know about the success story of Nokia from the beginning.

The journey of Nokia began with Fredrick Idestam in 1865 not as a mobile company but a paper mill. In 1871, Fredrick opened a new company and named it Nokia AB. Actually, Nokia is the name of a river in Finland. In 1922, Nokia was divided into two categories - Finnish Rubber works and Finnish Cable works. In 1967, the company was registered as Nokia Corporation which had 4 categories then - Forestry, Cables, Rubber and Electronics. In 1970, Networking and Radio industry came into Nokia company. 

Gradually, Nokia reached till Russia. And then between 1880-90, Nokia had acquired 3 more companies named Salora, Luxor AB and Oceanic. After that Nokia became the third biggest manufacturer of television. The company made many televisions and mini computers.

However, it also tried to bring a revolution in the field of mobile phones. And in 1982, acquiring the mobile company Mobira, it. launched its first mobile phone which was named Mobira Senator. In 1987, Nokia launched its first portable mobile phone. In 1990, Nokia established the first GSM network ever which was first used by the Prime Minister of Finland. And here, it got most of its popularity. Then, it launched a commercial mobile phone 1011 and by 1998, Nokia overtook the market of Motorola and became a best seller. Later, Nokia launched its first mobile phone with camera. And then it kept launching many phones with cameras and other features. 

However, with the growth of Apple and Samsung, Nokia saw the start of its bad days. It is well said that ego never lasts. When Samsung was busy in inventing new technologies and investing huge amounts in R&D, Nokia did't even try to strategize against it. That cost them and Samsung took all most the crown from Nokia. It suffered huge loss even after launching Nokia 800 in a collaboration with Microsoft Windows. After that, Nokia is rarely seen in the hands of the people today. 

That's all for today.

Inspirational Story Of Amul And How It Becames The Taste Of India

Today I am going to tell about one of the well-known company of India i.e Amul, The Taste Of India. After being a graduate of science, bachelor of engineering and master of science, if someone works for dairy products, what would you think of that person? But rightly it is told that "no work is big or small, if you do it with sheer determination and affection." This is proved by Verghese Kurien who is known as the founder of Amul.

The foundation of Amul was laid in 1946 when India was under the control of Britishers and in Gujarat, people were bound to hand over their milk production to the Britishers for free which was a big loss to our economy. But the poor milk men had no way out. Only few dairy companies existed in India at that time which were actually cooperative with Britishers. And to return the rights of the poor people, 3 great men of India including Vallabh Bhai Patel started the Amul company. 

It was registered as a corporate company in Dec 1946. Later, Verghese Kurien joined this corporate company only to help the poor men of India. He was that time a master in science. He could have excelled in his field by doing a good job and having a good family life. But he chose a different path - to help our countrymen. The biggest and first struggle for him was Polson dairy which had its sway all over India and the poor milkmen had to sell their milk at cheap prices to Polson. Then, he along with. many other leaders went to make people realize about their rights and understand about benefits of joining their corporate. Gradually people understood and began to sell their milk produces to Amul with good prices. So with time, many people's name got registered to Amul. Isn't it rightly said that there is victory where there is unity?


Gradually, Verghese developed excellent models so that Amul started to reach nooks and crannies of our country. To ensure quality of milk, he established various levels - village level, district level and state level where the milk was packed. And gradually, Amul company touched big heights. Verghese Kurien experimented making milk powder from Buffalo's milk. Many scientists had refused this but Verghese proved them wrong by producing Amulya. And today, apart from milk and milk powder, Amul produced paneer, ghee, butter, ice cream etc. 

For such tremendous determination and hard work, Verghese Kurien was awarded with Padma Vibhushan, Padma Shri and Krishi Ratna. Finally he came to be  known as Milkman of India. Verghese died in 2012 at Gujarat. But his deeds are still present among us. 

Today the Amul's business model has helped India to emerged as a largest producer of milk in the world. More than 15 million milk produce milkman pour their milk in 144500 dairy co-operative societies across the country. Their milk is processed in 184 district co-operative unions and marketed by 22 state market federation. This makes sure a better life for millions.

A Short Story Of SUBWAY Sandwiches

Hello Friends, today I'm going to discuss about one of the biggest restaurant chains of the world - Subway, which was opened as a small sandwich shop 52 years ago. It is said that this restaurant chain came into existence with a lot of struggle initially. So let's know the success story from beginning.

The story starts when in 1965, the 17 yr old Fred Deluca opened a sandwich stall. Actually, Fred had never desired to become a businessman. He wanted to become a doctor. But he had no money for medical studies. He moved his own expenses clumsily. Seeing him in trouble, his family friend Peter helped him by giving 1000 dollars and advising him to open some shop so that he could pay his college fees. He had already graduated from University of Columbia with physics degree and Doctorate. With Peter's money, he wanted to invest it in opening a shop that'd sell healthy fast food in cheap prices. 

On 28 August 1965, he opened a shop named Peter Super Submarine which was changed to Pete's Subway after a few months. But after analyzing the business, he came to know that he was going on a loss. Thus they decided to open another restaurant that sold burgers. But that also didn't work very well. In 1968, they opened a pizza shop named Subway. It was only because of the determination they had that they successfully turned it into a profitable business. The Subway had profit of 7000 dollars in the first year. And then, gradually they opened franchises of the restaurant and it became a chain.

Today Subway is serving in 44000 locations around the world. With a desire to keep trying and learn new things, Peter and Fred successfully created the biggest restaurant chain and the company is guided by their passion for delighting customers by serving delicious, made-to-order sandwiches.
