What We Think Of Gokul Refoils & Solvent Ltd’s (NSE:GOKUL) Investment Potential

Today we are going to look at Gokul Refoils & Solvent Ltd (NSE:GOKUL) to see whether it might be an attractive investment prospect. Specifically, we’re going to calculate its Return On Capital Employed (ROCE), in the hopes of getting some insight into the business. First, we’ll go over how we calculate ROCE. Then we’ll compare its ROCE to similar companies. Then we’ll determine how its current liabilities are affecting its ROCE. ROCE measures the ‘return’ (pre-tax profit) a company generates from capital employed in its business. Generally speaking a higher ROCE is better. Overall, it is a valuable metric that has its flaws. Author Edwin Whiting says to be careful when comparing the ROCE of different businesses, since ‘No two businesses are exactly alike. Return on Capital Employed = Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) ÷ (Total Assets – Current Liabilities) One way to assess ROCE is to compare similar companies. Using our data, Gokul Refoils & Solvent’s ROCE appears to be around the 12% average of the Food industry. Separate from how Gokul Refoils & Solvent stacks up against its industry, its ROCE in absolute terms is mediocre; relative to the returns on governm...

We are taking a look at the Sawyer Mini vs. LifeStraw to see which is the best

We are taking a look at the Sawyer Mini vs. LifeStraw to see which is the best option for your bug-out bag. Portable water filters are incredibly handy to have when you find yourself in the middle of nowhere with an empty water bottle or CamelBak. Whether you’re in the midst of an emergency situation, out on a particularly long hike, or camping, they can help prevent dehydration and water-borne illnesses. Portable water filters purify your water by eliminating pathogens and toxic compounds, leaving behind clean drinkable water. Arguably, the two most popular filters on the market are the Sawyer Mini and the LifeStraw. But which one should you choose? Here’s how they match up: On the surface, these two products appear very similar. For example, they’re both easy to use hollow-fiber membrane filters, as opposed to mammoth ceramic water filters. As the water pours through the filter, the membrane catches pathogens, algae, bacteria, and other unwelcome elements. The best thing about this style of filter is that you never have to change it out. Another plus is that there is no pumping required. These key factors make both ideal for distribution in catastrophic situations, such as hur...

Move over jeans: Black leggings are the true staple every gal needs in her wardrobe. We

Move over jeans: Black leggings are the true staple every gal needs in her wardrobe. We all know they’re perfect for workouts, but the right pair can also keep you comfy and stylish for everything from running errands to a fun night out, and you can even wear some styles as pants to work (yes, really!). But with so many options out there, you’ll need to find a pair that actually feels comfortable, looks good, and holds up. As you shop for leggings, you’ll want to pay close attention to the materials and overall construction. Here are some things to check out when you’re finding your perfect pair: Fabric: If you’re looking for exercise leggings, go for a pair made with synthetics like nylon or polyester. They’re usually moisture-wicking, more durable and opaque, and have better stretch than cotton. If you just want a lounge pair or one to wear under longer tops and dresses (i.e. it doesn’t need to be fully opaque), a natural fiber like cotton may be softer and have less compression. Seams: Flat seams on the inside are more comfortable than raised ones, and they’re especially important in workout leggings to avoid irritation from sweat and friction. If you’re going to ...

Now that the iPad Pro uses a USB-C port for charging, it opens up Apple’s tablet

Now that the iPad Pro uses a USB-C port for charging, it opens up Apple’s tablet to an entirely new world of possibilities with USB-C. You could make use of USB-C hubs to share your iPad screen to another monitor, transfer photos from an SD card or other drives, get a headphone jack, connect to other USB-A peripherals, and more. While there are many on the market, the one we think is the overall best pick is the HyperDrive 6-in-1 USB-C Hub Adapter. The HyperDrive 6-in-1 USB-C Hub Adapter is a hub that connects directly into the USB-C port on the iPad Pro and sits flush along the bottom. It’s like a small brick with a grip that helps it distribute the weight evenly, preventing strain on the port itself. Unlike a lot of other USB-C hubs, this one was designed specifically with the iPad Pro in mind. The HyperDrive USB-C Hub Adapter includes the following: 3.5mm audio jack, USB-A, SD, Micro SD, USB-C, and HDMI. With these ports, it should cover all of the necessities that you would need an adapter for on the iPad Pro. As far as the HDMI connection, it supports 1080p@60Hz, 2K@60Hz, and 4K@30Hz. Since the HyperDrive is designed to be flush with the rest of the iPad Pro, th...

In Defense of the Kick Scooter: The Case for Boston’s Least Cool Transit

Photo illustration by Madeline Bilis | Red and black scooter photos via iStock.com/pioneer111 | Background via iStock.com/ExpressIPhoto Pretty much out of nowhere, dockless e-scooters have swept the nation, popping up in cities coast to coast with mixed results. Debate has raged over whether the motorized devices are a panacea or a curse—a tech-fueled antidote to gridlock or an unwelcome infestation that warrants vigilante justice. That discussion played out in Boston this summer when Bird, a California-based startup, plunked hundreds of them in Cambridge and Somerville without asking, an experiment that ended when mayors abruptly banished them. But that won’t be the end of it. Whether cities like them or not, e-scooting is primed to become a $37 billion industry by 2024, according to one market research company’s estimate, and it’s just a matter of time until their inevitable return. In all this recent hubbub, though, we’ve lost sight of transportation’s most promising and under-appreciate...

Consumables Corner: Addressing penetration at the root of aluminum tack welds

Q: We tack weld many of our aluminum parts manually with gas metal arc welding (GMAW) in a fixture before final robotic welding takes place. We are having difficulty getting good fusion from the robot station in the areas where it welds over the tack weld. The aluminum material is 6061-T6, the manual tack weld wire is 5356, and the robot welds with 4043, all done with argon shielding gas. Any ideas how to resolve this? A: There are several things to consider, but ultimately it could be one small change or several things combined to resolve your issues. As a refresher, cleaning the weld joint, selecting the right GMAW parameter settings, and using the proper weld technique are all necessary to achieve good results. Two things we noticed right away that might be partially to blame for the lack of fusion (LOF) are the pure argon shielding gas and the two different filler metals. Not that these are uncommon combinations, but they may cause some problems. Pure argon shielding gas is common for welding specialty alloys including aluminum because it is a nonreactive gas. With regards to aluminum, it provides good cleaning action, stable arc characteristics, good arc initiation, and mod...

BMW Unleashes Naked Version Of S1000RR, R1200RT Tourer

The New High-Performance Roadster Based on the S 1000 RR Woodcliff Lake, NJ – November 5, 2013… Superbike riding dynamics and powerful, emotive roadster styling – these are the hallmarks of the new BMW S 1000 R. The new naked bike from BMW Motorrad is directly derived from the S 1000 RR superbike and uses the same innovative technology. The close family resemblance to the “RR” is instantly obvious. The simplified appearance of the new S 1000 R exudes an aggressive, dynamic energy. A well-thought-out overall concept, with 160 hp maximum power and a weight of 207 kg (456 lbs), as well as Race ABS, ASC and a choice of two riding modes as standard makes the BMW S 1000 R a dynamic sports roadster. In-line four-cylinder engine with optimized low to mid-range performance. When modifying the S 1000 RR’s 999 cc four-cylinder in-line engine for use in the S 1000 R, the engineers were looking in particular to provide punchy response all the way through the rpm range. To provide the ideal set-up both for everyday use and for sporty riding on the open road, they significantly increased the low and mid-range power and torque. At the same time, maximum rpm has been reduced by approximately 2,0...

Nirvana: The Stories Behind Every Song On Nevermind — Kerrang!

After their debut album sent shockwaves throughout the world of alternative music, Nirvana’s 1991 follow-up Nevermind saw the Washington noisemakers elevated to iconic status. From the game-changing opening track to the infectious In Bloom, from the morose Polly to the depressive Something In The Way, Nevermind changed the sound of not only grunge but rock music forever. Kurt’s songwriting had evolved into the voice of a generation and the new addition of Dave Grohl on drums provides an even more frantic, punk energy to Nirvana’s inimitable sound. Here we look back on one of the greatest rock albums of all time, examining each song in-depth. Even the hidden track Endless, Nameless from later pressings. Kurt Cobain later said that when he sat down to pen the track that secured Nirvana their unexpected crossover into the mainstream, he was trying to write “the ultimate pop song”. Kurt’s main influence had been The Pixies, telling Rolling Stone, “I connected with that band so heavily… We used their sense of dynamics, being soft and quiet and then loud and hard.” Indeed, Krist Novoselic worried that the song was too Pixies-ish, telling Kurt, “People are really going to nail us for i...

Confession: It took us a minute to come around to smart home devices. For starters, it

Confession: It took us a minute to come around to smart home devices. For starters, it all just sounds so expensive. Not to mention inaccessible (you can’t exactly install a smart thermostat if you don’t own your apartment). But then we started dabbling, and everything changed. Have you seen one of those smart lightbulbs change ever so subtly from warm golden light to clear bright blue? It’s practically magic. The mood shifts whichever way you want it to (yours truly was surprised at how soothing she found barely green light to be). And the room looks different, too. Then there’s just the convenience factor of it all: The fact that you can let in a dog walker, check on said dog while he’s home alone, turn up the lights if you’re on vacation, see what’s happening in your driveway, and even adjust the temperature—all from the convenience of your desk chair, or a desert island halfway across the globe…that’s incredible. And not weird at all! We might still need some time to get used to talking to our speaker systems, but the rest is a go. Sure there are bigger, more technologically savvy smart speakers, but for anyone just getting com...
