Stunning Stock Surge: Brightcom Group’s Remarkable 71% Rebound Revealed!

“On Wednesday, Brightcom Group Ltd, which has been facing financial challenges, continued its upward trend for the fourth consecutive trading session. The stock saw a 5 percent increase today, reaching its upper circuit limit at Rs 15.91. This marks a significant gain of 21.36 percent over the past four days. It’s been a year of extremes for this stock in terms of value, witnessing both highs and lows. At the current closing price, the stock has rebounded by an impressive 71.63 percent from its one-year low of Rs 9.27, recorded on April 28 this year when it hit rock bottom and became a penny stock. However, despite this recent rise, it remains 63.55 percent below its 52-week high of Rs 43.65, reached on October 11 last year.

The stock faced considerable selling pressure recently due to the resignation of the company’s chairman and managing director (CMD), Suresh Kumar Reddy, and chief financial officer (CFO), SL Narayana Raju, SEBI had prohibited Reddy and Raju from holding any directorial positions within the company.

This stock, once considered a high-performing investment, is backed by seasoned investor Shankar Sharma. Over the past five years, it has surged by an impressive 737.37 percent. As of June 2023, Sharma owns a 1.14 percent stake in the company, slightly down from the 1.24 percent he held in the previous quarter. It’s worth noting that SEBI’s order also restricted Sharma from selling any more shares in the company.

Brightcom recently announced the initiation of a CEO and CFO search process, which will be entrusted to specialized executive search consultants. Given the complexity of appointing these key positions and the time it may take, the Board is closely overseeing this matter. Additionally, the 24th annual general meeting (AGM), originally scheduled for September 30, 2023, to present the annual report for the financial year 2022-23 (FY23), cannot proceed at this juncture. This decision is influenced by the presence of a second interim SEBI order, the absence of critical individuals such as the CEO and CFO, and various technical issues that are hindering the finalization of the annual report at this time. Furthermore, the Board has empowered relevant personnel to engage with the regulator and relevant authorities to explore the possibility of extending the AGM within the bounds of applicable legal requirements.

In terms of technical analysis, the stock is currently trading below the 5-day and 10-day simple moving averages (SMAs) but above the 20-day, 30-day, 50-day, 100-day, 150-day, and 200-day SMAs. The 14-day relative strength index (RSI) stands at 35.63, indicating it is in the oversold range (a level below 30 is considered oversold, while a value above 70 is considered overbought). The company’s stock currently has a negative price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 177.56 and a price-to-book (P/B) value of 2.04. With a one-year beta of 1.54, it exhibits high volatility.

AR Ramachandran from Tips2trades noted, “Brightcom Group’s stock price is rebounding from oversold levels, but it may face resistance at Rs 18.83 according to daily charts. As long as it maintains daily support at Rs 14.4 on a closing basis, buyers can hold their positions for the aforementioned target.”

However, some analysts have pointed out that the stock’s pattern appears “somewhat erratic,” characterized by a series of upper and lower circuits.

Brightcom Group operates in the ad-tech, new media, and IoT (Internet of Things) sectors worldwide, primarily in the digital ecosystem. Its consumer products division focuses on IoT, and the company has a presence in the US, Israel, Latin America, the Middle East, Western Europe, and the Asia Pacific regions.”
