Tata Docomo - Do the New

Tata Docomo makes an impact in its first month. Tata TeleServices TTSL has reported subs net addition of 2.26 mn for the month of July 2009, surpassing its previous highest monthly net addition of 1.26 mn reported in March 2009. This is a reflection of the positive response to the company’s GSM launch in six circles and innovative ‘per-second’ billing .It seems TTSL’s innovation can have a longer-lasting impact on the dynamics of the Indian wireless market than some of the other new launches.But the sector prospects still remains foggy.

TTSL garners 34.3% net adds market share in the six new GSM circles. Strong response to the new GSM service launch in six new circles has helped TTSL increase subs net adds to its best-ever 2.26 mn (15.7% of market net adds) for the month of July 2009, lower than only Bharti and RCOM. The company’s share of net adds in the new circles of launch was 34.3%, an indicator of the strong initial response to its innovative ‘per-second’ billing structure in its GSM launch.

Tata Docomo’s ‘per-second’ billing concept is capable of making a strong and sustainable impact on the industry’s competitive dynamics. While the company’s July 2009 subs net adds corroborate the ‘strong’ part, the ‘sustainablity' will be tested over the coming months.

The following table shows BSE Sensex historical data - open, close and the yearly returns of the sensex from 2000 to 2012. There are some interesting points to note from the above table. Post 2008 crash of about 50% and 2011 negative returns of 24%, markets have given positive returns of 81% and 25%. Also the average returns for the past years is about 20% despite the markets being down 24%. The lesson is pretty much clear - long term investing pays and one need not bother too much about the ups and downs of the markets. During the past few years, the returns from investing in individual stocks have been varied.  Despite markets being at 2 year highs, only a few stocks are at similar highs, while most of them are still languishing well below their historical highs and are down anywhere between 8
