What are graphite electrodes and needle coke?

Graphite electrodes are the main heating element used in an electric arc furnace, a steelmaking process where scrap from old cars or appliances is melted to produce new steel. Electric arc furnaces are cheaper to build than traditional blast furnaces, which make steel from iron ore and are fuelled by coking coal. But the cost of steelmaking is higher since they use steel scrap and powered by electricity. The electrodes are part of the furnace lid and are assembled into columns. Electricity then passes through the electrodes, forming an arc of intense heat that melts the scrap steel. Electrodes vary widely in size but can be up to 0.75 metres (2 and a half feet) in diameter and as much as 2.8 meters (9 feet) long. The largest weigh more than two metric tons. It takes up to 3 kg (6.6 lb) of graphite electrodes to produce one tonne of steel. The tip of the electrode will reach 3,000 degrees Celsius, half the temperature of the sun’s surface. Electrodes are made of graphite because only …

GOCLCORP - as of now 2 X but still hungry


When identified the first and formidable entry edge,  it was @ 200 and now at 565

IGPL - Almost 5 X in 15 months

IGPL (683) -   Identified, when it was at 150+ in  July 2016  at that time, fixed the target 280  but after that, during this 15 months,  5 times target extended,
 including the latest one in 3 days before, set it as 760--780,  Let us see.
Already, it gave almost 400% absolute return  in 15 months 
During this continuous up move journey,  Repeatedly asking the only one question, whenever extend the target
"When TIRUMALCHM was done much higher at price wise, Why not IGPL? (same product manufacturing company,  in fact, higher capacity)
In fact, this is nothing but the justification and conviction for its up move comparing the peer, that'll.
Fortunately, this conviction/justification  worked out well, so far.

Graphite Electrodes - It is Hot now but identified in Jan & June itself.

Graphite electrodes manufacturing companies are the hot theme now but these are all already moved up 3 to 4 X in this year itself. Most of the market participants talking about it now.

but as for as GRAPHITE INDIA concerned, identified on 09th Jan 2017 itself,  when it was trading at the first and formidable entry edge of the 90+ level 

Below is the first email content  dated 09th Jan 2017 

and after the above email, already 3 to 4 follow-up extended targets given, including the latest one on 14th Sept. with a  target of 325 which was also met on 15th Sept itself. 


 As for as HEG concerned, identified on 22nd June 2017 only when it was trading at the first and formidable entry edge of the 300+ level  (but at that time itself, already, it was moved up almost 100 % from Jan 2017 low of 150),

Below is the email content  dated 22nd June 2017 

(here, purposely erased the ULTIMATE UPSIDE TARGET) 
as on last Friday, it was upper locked at 819.40 still, the said ULTIMATE is due…

JBMA - almost 100% within 21 sessions, possible when understand the EDGE.

JBM (575.50) 
 Identified when it was at 286 on 05th July 
and said above 300 up move will start
on 06th July, itself, it crossed 300  and went up to 388 on 07th July 
But corrected up to 301.50 on 11th Aug.  (once again supported the entry edge)
from there, within 21 trading sessions,  yesterday made high 593
that means almost 100%, that too, within 21 sessions. 

When understanding the EDGE, 
not only big return,  sometimes, so quick also
this stock is  just one among them
(cannot expect in the all stocks in all the time) 


Holding a stock,  for a long  time of its non-performing period,  does not matter, but  whether hold it or not  while it performs, is 

BOMDYEING - Fast and Furious.

BOMDYEING (156.35)   Identified only on 28th Aug.  and thought that 96 become an EDGE,  It worked out. Fast and furious.
With in 9 trading session from 96 to 161,  that means ~ 66% absolute return. 

Now entered the next orbit, 
Yeh Sheyar Maange More!
but, now, the entry edge also for away. 

Enter at the entry EDGE is more important. 

All the stocks can not perform in all the time. 
Almost every stock give its best in their life cycle in a particular period only. 

Hold a stock,  for a long  time of its non-performing period,  does not matter, but whether hold it or not  when it performs is the matter 

Being associated with me, Whether you will make money or not, time will tell, I can only assure you that you can understand how to approach a stock and when to approach a stock and what are all the edges in the stock.

BEML mapped once again - One of the best identified stock at the bottom itself.
