Bombay Dyeing & Manufacturing Company Limited (BDMCL) shares flared up on the BSE on Thursday, hitting an intraday high of Rs 54.40 before closing at Rs 53.85, a gain of 5.80 percent. In the past four trading sessions this year, the stock has appreciated about 13 percent.BDMCL is in the news for its revival plans that are expected to bring the loss-making company back in black in the next few years.As part of its efforts to exit non-core activities, the company sold land on December 31, 2016 for ~ Rs 185 crore in Maharashtra, including a flat in Mumbai’s Prabhadevi area for Rs 9.4 crore. The other sale effected was “MIDC Land & Building and some specific utility machinery of Ranjangaon unit” for Rs 174.45 crore, the company said in regulatory filing on January 1, 2017.”What Bombay Dyeing aims to do now is to revive the loss making flagship textile business by investing in the brand, expanding store network, growing product portfolio and liaising with international designers. Manufacturing will be outsourced,” brokerage Dynamic Levels said in an update a few days ago.”From now till 2020, the Wadia group owned company plans to invest over Rs 100 crore in the brand, double its multibrand outlets to 10,000, more than double its franchise stores to 500 and commence three to four new products every year,” Dynamic Levels added.For the quarter ended September 2016, the company incurred standalone loss of Rs 71 crore on sales of Rs 430 crore. In 2015-16, the company posted loss of Rs 84 crore on total sales of Rs 1,804 crore. The company’s chairman is Nusli Wadia, who was in the news recently in the context of the ongoing corporate battle saga within the Tata Group.

The researcher had made several earthquake predictions in the past couple of years, and surprisingly, most of these predictions turned true. Even though experts call it a clear case of coincidence, followers of Hoogerbeets strongly believe that the predictions made by the researcher using a sophisticated system called SSGI (Solar System Geometry Index) are right.In the meantime, Hoogerbeets has now warned that a powerful earthquake measuring at least 7 on the Richter scale could hit the planet on August 18. As per Hoogerbeets, a critical planetary geometry that happened recently is the main reason behind this rise in seismic activities.”Absence of critical planetary geometry caused a seismic lull in the last seven days with no magnitude 6+ earthquake since August 4. This is likely going to change in the coming days. Starting on the 12th, 13th a seismic increase may occur due to upcoming critical planetary geometry. A seismic peak is most likely to occur from the 14th to the 18th with potentially one or two high 6 to 7+ magnitude earthquakes,” wrote Hoogerbeets on his website.In his website, Hoogerbeets reveals that certain planetary alignments and lunar geometry are capable of releasing electromagnetic force, which will, in turn, destabilize the tectonic plates of the earth. As per Hoogerbeets, seismic activities will witness a dramatic rise when tectonic plates of our planet get destabilized. Hoogerbeets also makes it clear that he is not a part of any conspiracy theory group, and all he wants to do is exposing the truth to the general public.However, experts have dismissed the predictions made by Hoogerbeets, and they claim that no current technology on the earth is capable of predicting earthquakes with such mindblowing precision. As per experts, a small earthquake may be actually a foreshock, and this theory will become right only if we detect an aftershock in the area.
