Investment Strategy:

“I buy lesser-known, high quality businesses to derive maximum portfolio value. I don’t shy away from smaller companies like other ‘knowledgeable people’ do. And I don’t buy a lot of great companies with clean balance sheet, honest management and clear business visibility. If you invest in such companies, even bank FDs would beat your portfolio returns.” – Porinju Veliyath

Porinju Veliyath is known as a small cap investor. He believes that if the business is good, investors should not care much about the market capitalization. Most of the companies in his portfolio do not pass muster with large institutional investors, however, has given him multiple times returns.

How Many Stocks Should you own for a Diversified Portfolio?

How many stocks should you own for a diversified portfolio?

Hi Investors. Today, we are going to discuss- how many stocks should you own for a diversified portfolio?

How many stocks are too few and how many stocks become too many?

In general, there is no correct answer to this question and the answer varies according to your investment goals.

However, there are few thumb rules for defining the number of stocks in your portfolio. We will discuss them in this post. But first, we should understand the meaning of a diversified portfolio.

What is a diversified portfolio?

A diversified portfolio is investing in different stocks from dissimilar industries/sectors in order to reduce overall investment risk and to avoid damage to the portfolio by the poor performance of a single stock or portfolio.

Also read: How to create your Stock Portfolio?

For getting good returns from your investments, it’s important that your stock portfolio is well diversified. Both under diversification and over-diversification is adverse for an investment.

  • Under diversified portfolio has more risk as the poor performance of a single stock can have an adverse effect on the entire portfolio.
  • Similarly, over-diversified portfolio gives low returns and even good performance of a single stock will lead to a minimum positive impact on the portfolio.

As a thumb rule, as the number of stocks in the portfolio increases, the portfolio becomes more diversified, and risk decreases (but profit on the portfolio may be lower).

In a similar way, as the number of stocks in the portfolio decreases, the portfolio becomes under-diversified, and risk increases (but profit on the portfolio may be higher).

How many stocks should you own for a diversified portfolio?

  • Minimum 3 stocks from different industry:

There should be at least 3 stocks from dissimilar sector/industries in your portfolio.

  • Maximum number of stocks should be 20:

The maximum number of stocks in any retail investor’s portfolio should be 20. If the number of stocks becomes greater than 20, then it becomes counterproductive for the portfolio. Although the risk decreases but the profit margin will also decrease. The impact of a single stock in the portfolio will be minimal.

Note: Here the number of stocks in a diversified portfolio is suggested for an investment over Rs 10,000. If you’re investing lesser amount, then your stock portfolio can be different.

Read more here: How To Invest Rs 10,000 In India for High Returns?

Diversification is a good method to safeguard your portfolio during market correction or a bear market. All the stocks in your portfolio will not perform poorly at once and even the poor performance of few stocks will be canceled out with your good performing stocks.

However, the diversified portfolio does not act as a shield for your portfolio during recession or market crash. During 2008 market crash, when Sensex fell over 60%, then even the well-diversified portfolios weren’t able to safeguard the investor’s portfolio.

Other points to note:

  • Rebalance your portfolio regularly: Sometimes one of your stock might be performing extremely well and can become a major contributor in your portfolio. In such cases, rebalance your portfolio so that it can remain diversified.
  • Hold the winners and Cut the losers: Do not hold the underperforming stock too long just to keep your portfolio diversified. Sell the losing stocks and re-organize your portfolio.

Conclusion:

In general, a retail investor should hold stocks between 3 to 20, from dissimilar industries/sectors. However, 8-12 stocks are sufficient in your diversified portfolio.

ow to monitor your stock portfolio COVER

How to Monitor Your Stock Portfolio?

How to monitor your stock portfolio?

Hola Investors. Today I am going to teach how can monitor your stock portfolio in an easy and effective way.

First, let me clarify that in this post we are going to learn how to monitor the performances of the holding stock in your portfolio.

We are not going to discuss how to track your profits or how much money you have made from the market. There are a number of financial websites and apps that you can use to track your profits or losses.

Here we are going to discuss how to monitor the performance of the holding stocks. How is the company doing? Is the company’s performance improving or declining?

This post has nothing to do with the stock price movement, but to monitor the company’s performance and growth.

As creating a good stock portfolio is important, similarly, it’s equally important to monitor the performance of the holding stocks in your portfolio.

Quick Tips:

There are few tips that I would like to give you first before we start discussing how to monitor your stock portfolio. They are:

1. You do not need to check the stock prices daily:

Until you are involved in Intraday trading, checking the stock price daily won’t help you much. It’s a lot easier and stress-free if you do not check the prices of your stocks daily.

2. Moreover, do not calculate your net profit/loss daily:

The stock market is dynamic and the stock prices change every second. And hence, there is again no use to check your net profit/loss daily.

3. ‘Buy & hold’ is old:

If too much involvement is wrong, in the same way, extra ignorance towards your stocks is also bad. Do not trust blindly on your holding companies. ‘Buy and hold’ strategy has few loopholes and you need to monitor even your best performing stock.

4. Look at unexpected changes:

If there is a drastic rise/fall in the price of any of your holding stock, then you need to investigate the reason behind it.

Now that you have understood the quick tips, lets us study how to monitor your stock portfolio.

How to monitor your stock portfolio?

1. Read the important news about the company:

Keep updated with the latest happenings of the company and the industry. There are a number of factors that can affect the company which can be both domestic (government norms, taxes, duties etc) and international (Currency exchange rates, crude oil, war scenarios etc).

To keep updated with the news you can set google alerts for the companies in your portfolio. All the news related to the company will be directly sent to your email inbox.

Learn how to set google alerts here.

Further, you can also read important news on few financial websites like money control and screener if you create your portfolio on it. These sites will notify you about the news regarding the company.

2. Check the quarterly results of the company:

Every company in India releases its results quarterly i.e. 4 times in a year. Typically, a company releases its results within 45 days after the end of every quarter (March/June/September/December).

Study the quarterly results of the company in your portfolio. If the results are good, then enjoy. However, if the result is bad, then do not get influenced by the loss of the company in just one quarter. In any business, there will be losses sometimes. What matters is the consistency. Nevertheless, if the company is continuously giving bad results, then you need to reconsider about the stock.

3. Read the annual results:

Company’s annual reports are the best way to evaluate its performance. Using the annual reports, you can compare the company’s performance with its past to check its growth. You can also read the company’s future plans and strategy in the annual result.

Also read: How to do Fundamental Analysis on Stocks?

4. Keep an eye on Corporate announcements:

Read the corporate announcements to remain updated with corporate actions of the company like new acquisition, merger, appointment or resignation of senior management etc. This information can also be found on the company’s website.

5. Monitor the shareholding patterns:

You also need to check the shareholding pattern of the company, mainly the promoters shareholdings.

An increase in the shares of the promoters is a healthy sign. Promoters are the owners of the company and they have the best knowledge of the company. If they are confident about its future growth, they are usually correct.

However, if the shareholding of the promoters is continuously declining, then it’s a bad sign. Investigate further why the promoters are selling their stake.

Besides, do not get afraid if mutual funds, FII, DII are buying/selling the stocks. They buy the stocks on the availability of funds.

6. Check the promoter’s pledge of shares:

Promoters pledge of share is always a sign of caution. If the pledging is continuously increasing, then be aware. You can check the promoter’s pledge of share on the company’s website.

Although it takes few efforts and time to continuously monitor the stocks in your portfolio, however, it’s worthwhile doing it.

Nevertheless, if you have less number of stocks in your portfolio, say 8-10, then it won’t take much time to monitor your portfolio.

Moreover, the Google alerts and mobile app notifications have made the life of investor lot easier. You can read most of the news and information on your mobile without much effort now.

The basics requirements for buying a stock in the stock market are:

  1. Stockbroker: General people can’t go to a stock exchange and buy/sell stocks. Only members of the stock exchange can buy and sell and they are called the brokers. Every broker should be registered on the Securities and exchange board of India(SEBI). There are a number of brokers/ sub-brokers which you can choose for trading. Some online brokers are Sharekhan, Kotak Securities, ICICI Direct, 5paise and India Bulls.
  2. Saving Account: Obviously you need a saving account for trading in the stock market.
  3. Demat A/C: It’s very simple to open a demat account. Now a day, the banks even offer you to open a 3-in-1 account, i.e. all three Saving+ Demat+ Trading account, by filling few forms just once. The 3-in-1 account will save your timing a lot and I recommend you to open a 3-in-1 account if you want to start trading in the stocks. You can open it in banks like ICICI, SBI, Kotak etc.

    You can decide your online broker for opening demat account depending on the different factors like brokerage charges, facilities offered, annual maintenance charges etc. Here is a link which you may find useful: Compare Online Share Brokers In India And Find Best Stock Broker In India.


    Note: If you open a 3-in-1 account you won’t need to find a stockbroker as the trading account is already included in it.

  4. Laptop and Internet connection: Obviously, the soul of modern era which is a must for all the online facilities.

Six Different Types of Stock in Indian Market according to Peter Lynch

Six Different Types of Stock in Indian Market according to Peter Lynch:

Peter Lynch is the renowned American investor and ex-manager of Magellan fund at Fidelity investment. He is famous for his averaged 29.2% annual return for the duration of 13 years. The prodigal mutual fund manager divided the stocks into six categories during his investment experience. Namely: slow growers, stalwarts, fast growers, cyclical, asset plays, and turnarounds.

We are also going to follow lynch’s path.  Here are the categories with the examples of stocks from Indian markets so that they are easier to understand.

N

Six Different Types of Stock in Indian Market according to Peter Lynch:

1. Slow growers / Sluggards

Slow growers, which originally once were fast growers, can be identified easily with a slow growth rate i.e. a low upward slope of earnings growth and stock price. The growth is usually between 2-5%. They can also be identified by the size and generosity of their dividend.

Peter Lynch did not like to spend time on these ‘sluggards’ and his portfolio consisted of very less percentage of slow growers. According to him, the only reason to buy these stocks is their dividends. They generally give a very good dividend (about 4-6%) and are a good asset during the recession as its very unlikely for their stock to feel too hard.

Example: Reliance, Power Grid Corp

2. The Stalwarts

They are the second type of categories of the Six Different Types of Stock in Indian Market according to Peter Lynch.

These stocks have average growth rate and are usually large companies that have earnings growth in the 10-12 percent range – higher than the slow growers.

According to Peter lynch, you can get a good return from these stocks if you wait for a long time. They generally end up from two-baggers (two times your buying price) to four-baggers. It’s good to have few stalwarts in your portfolio.

Example: HPCL, Bajaj Auto, Mahindra & Mahindra

Best book for Stock Market Beginners– If you are new to stocks, I will highly recommend to read ‘ONE UP ON THE WALL STREET‘ by Peter Lynch. It is available currently at the best price on Amazon.

3. The fast growers

The fast growers are everyone’s first choice. These stocks are generally small aggressive new enterprises and they grow at an impressive rate of 20-25% per year. But one should be open-eyed when they own a fast grower. There is a great likelihood for the fast growers to get hammered if they run out of steam and become a slow grower.

Peter lynch’s portfolio consisted mainly of the fast growers. He looks for fast growers with good balance sheets and which have good profitability. This category is also the lynch’s favorite among the Six Different Types of Stock in Indian Market according to Peter Lynch

Example: MRF, Eicher Motors, axis bank, Infosys, Maruti

4. The Cyclicals

The Cyclical can be distinguished from the fast growers as the cyclical keep on expanding and contracting and again repeating the same cycle (while the fast growers keep on expanding). They tend to flourish when coming out of a recession into a vigorous economy.

Automobiles, Metals, Chemicals, Tyres etc are the examples of the cyclical. Their charts tend to be very up and down over time. It is advised to owning the cyclical only on the right part of the cycle.  That is when they are expanding. Sometimes, it even takes them years before they perform. Timing is everything and you need to be able to detect the early signs that business is falling off or picking up.

Example: GAIL, Coal India, SBI

5. The turnarounds

The turnarounds are identified by Lynch as ‘no growers’ rather than ‘slow growers’. They are potential fatalities that have been badly hammered by the market for one or more of a variety of reasons. But they can make up lost ground very quickly.

Peter lynch identifies different types of turnarounds in his book ‘One up on the Wall Street’ and admits to being burnt by a number of them but suggests that the occasional success can be exciting and rewarding.

Example: Tata Steel, Phoenix Mills etc

6. The Asset Plays

This is the last category from the Six Different Types of Stock in Indian Market according to Peter Lynch.

The asset plays are those stocks whose stocks are greatly undervalued and those stocks that have assets overlooked by the market. These assets may be simply cash that the company is holding but which is not valued when there has been a general market downturn. The cash may be worth more than the market capitalization of the company.

Many of the PSUs are key asset plays because of the real estate property they are holding. For example- State bank of India. SBI has over 24,000 branches all over India. A similar example is ONGC.

Peter lynch understands the worth of the asset plays. He suggests owning few of these stocks in your portfolio as they are most likely to give you a good return in the future. The only significant thing in these stocks is to carefully find these stocks and right estimate for the worth of the assets. If you are able to do it, own that stock.

Try it out yourself!

So, these are the six different types of Stock in Indian Market according to Peter Lynch. If you followed the post, you can also easily categorize any stock in the six types given above. So, go on, play around different stocks and classify them accordingly to above categories.

NOTE: The research on Six Different Types of Stock in Indian Market according to Peter Lynch is derived from his Book ONE UP ON WALL STREET.

Further, please comment below with the name of stocks that fits the above categories. I will really appreciate it and it will be very beneficial for the other post viewers.

So, it must be easy to follow the stock market. But is it?

The answer is yes and no, both. It depends on your experience knowledge.

For the matured investors, it’s easier to follow the stock market as they have been doing it for years.

However, for the beginners, they get confused on how to follow stock market seeing so many websites on the internet.

Therefore, in this post, I am going to teach you how to follow stock market. These few simple tricks about following the stock market and its trends, which once known, even a beginner can follow the market as a pro.

Please note that this post about ‘how to follow stock market’ is basically for the beginners but the intermediate and advanced level investors can also get benefits from this post.

How to follow Stock Market?

Here are few of the simple yet effective financial websites from where you can learn how to follow stock market. I have described how to easily navigate and use these sites. Here it goes:

1. Google : 

Google is the best source to follow a stock. Just type the name of the stock and the google will give you all the details about that stock.

For example, if you want to follow the stock of Tata Motors, just type ‘Tata motors share price’ on google. The result will be like this:

how to follow stock market google

On Google, you can track the share price movement of the stock for a given period of 1 day, 5day, 1 month, 1 year, 5 years or max, by simply clicking on different tabs.

For example, if you click on ‘1 month’ in the tab, you can see the price movement of that stock for the last 1 month.

The simplicity of the google makes it best for the beginners to start following the market.

The only disadvantage of tracking stock market price on Google is that you have to type the names of different stocks every time when you want to track that stocks. If you have many stocks to track, say more than 10 (Ex Reliance, Tata Steel, HPCL, ONGC, BPCL, Titan, Infosys…..) then it will become a hectic job for you as you have to type the stock name over and over again.

Nevertheless, this is the basic place for all the beginners when they start learning how to follow stock market. Therefore, you should also get used to it. Try googling the stock price of few stocks and indexes on google.

Exercise: Type NIFTY on google and see what appears.

Also, try different stocks which you are interested in. This is the first step to learn how to follow stock market. In case, you do not remember much names, here is the list of few major stocks which you can search:

RELIANCE DLF TCS
YESBANK TATASTEEL COALINDIA
AUROPHARMA RELCAPITAL TATAMOTORS
AXISBANK HINDPETRO M&M
ITC HDFCBANK IBULHSGFIN
POWERGRID BAJFINANCE LT
SBIN INFY GAIL
MARUTI SUNPHARMA ASHOKLEY

NOTE: Do not search Facebook, google, Apple’s stock price. There stock prices for these companies will be shown in dollars on google.

Only Indian companies are listed on Indian Stock Exchanges. Therefore, companies like Apple, Facebook, Samsung etc which are not Indian companies can’t be traded in India. They are listed in their respective country’s stock exchange.

For example- Facebook in New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), Samsung in Korea Exchange etc.

If you want to learn stocks from scratch, I will highly recommend you to read this book: ONE UP ON THE WALL STREET By Peter Lynch- best book for stock market beginners.

2. Money control:

Probably the best website in India if you want to learn how to follow stock market.

The website gives you all the info you want to know about a stock.

In addition, there is also a money control mobile app, which is even better than the website. You can easily follow the market using the mobile app.

How to create your Stock Portfolio?

How to create your stock portfolio? An intelligent investor knows the importance of a smart portfolio. Whether he is investing in stocks, bonds or mutual investment, he always chooses his portfolio smartly. Although most of the people have a different strategy for creating their portfolio, there are few main points that should be taken care when creating your portfolio.

  • Diversification

A smart portfolio is the one, which maximizes the profit and minimizes the risk. The first step of creating an intelligent portfolio is ‘Diversification’.

What diversification means, in general, is to buy stocks from different sectors (Banks, autos, FMCG, energy, IT etc) rather than buying a single or two stocks of huge amount. In short, it can be explained by the old saying- ‘Don’t put all your eggs in the same basket’.

While many people argue that, it makes a lot of sense to invest a huge sum of money on a sure-shot stock (which you are too confident about- example Microsoft, which gave 10 times or more returns). However, we like to differ from the argument.

There are various reasons we can give you to support our conclusion.

First, you never know which stock is next Microsoft. Stocks like Microsoft are only a few among more than 5000 stocks in the stock market. If by any chance you made a mistake or if by bad circumstances, the company is not able to perform as expected, and then your whole sum of money will be in vain & you may be in a tremendous loss. Second, for investing in such a company, you need to be 1000% sure. You need to do a lot of intense investment about the company (which is generally not possible for a retail investor), but if you have a diversified portfolio you can slight risks if you are confident about your other stocks.

For example, if you have 10 good stocks, you can be certain that most of them (8-9) will outperform the market and give you a good result. 1-2 bad stocks in a group of 10 will not affect your overall portfolio. However, in the case of a single stock, it is either win or lose.

If you want to learn more about stock market investing strategies, I will highly recommend you to read this best-selling book: One Up On Wall Street: How To Use What You Already Know To Make Money In the Market by Peter Lynch

Therefore, in this post about How to create your stock portfolio, we suggest our retail investors invest in a diversified portfolio. Do not buy 1 lakh shares of just one company in your portfolio.

The advantages of a diversified portfolio:

  1. Diversification helps you in giving liberty to choose a variety of stock. You need to do extraordinary in all the stocks you choose. If most of the stocks are performing well, then your portfolio will overall be in profit. Like the legendary investor Warren Buffett said ‘You only have to do a very few thing right in your life so long as you don’t do too many things wrong.’
  1. Sometimes some sectors underperform and because of which the stock will underperform. Say, if the bank sector is not performing then your bank stock will be in loss. However, it is very less likely that all other sectors (IT, autos, FMCG etc), will also not perform at the same time. During such times, diversification can help you to remain in profit withholding the stocks of other sectors.
  2. Further, if because of some unpredictable reason, one of your stock is not performing well, but you are confident that it will perform well in future, you can still keep the stock on the stake of your other good-performing stocks. You just need to balance out and be overall in profit. [In undiversified case, if your stock is not performing, you will be in overall loss and which might lead you to sell that potential stock.]

Hence, form the arguments that we just put forward, you must follow the diversified portfolio in the stock investment in order to minimize your losses.

Example of how to create a stock portfolio:

Now, we will give you an example of how to create your stock portfolio using diversified portfolio strategy so that you can get an idea of how to create one.
