How to pick a stock
  • Identify your style of investing
  • Investing styles primarily fall under one of
  • Value investingThis is when an investor looks at
    a bargain in terms of how a stock is valued,
    i.e., identifying stocks at deep discounts to
    their asset values, liquidation values or
    replacement values
  • Growth investingGrowth investors look for
    companies that are experiencing a rapid growth in
    their earnings, typically companies growing by
    upwards of 20 every year

How to pick a stock
  • Turnaround investingTurnaround specialists look
    at companies in a distress state currently, but
    which could be potential candidates for
    turnaround in operations. This could be triggered
    by change in business model, change in management
    or change in balance sheet structure

How to pick a stock
How to pick a stock
  • Large CapsTypically companies which are large
    and have a proven long-term performance track
    record. Market cap exceeds INR 5,000 crores
  • Mid CapsTypically companies at an expanding
    stage of product/service acceptance and
    witnessing steady growth in their business.
    Market cap in the range of INR 1,000 to 5,000
  • Small CapsTypically companies at an early stage
    of product/service acceptance and subject to
    change/competition/substitute products/
    technology. Market cap less than INR 1,000 crores

How to pick a stock
  • Key parameters to look at
  • Growth
  • Capital Efficiency
  • Leverage
  • Valuations

When to sell a stock
When to sell a stock
  • Deteriorating fundamentals (Slowdown in growth,
    increasing competition, reduction in profit
    margins, etc.)
  • The stock price has appreciated to such an extent
    that valuations are beginning to look expensive
    on multiple fronts
  • A better substitute is now available versus the
    current stock you are holding, and with capital
    being limited, you sell the current stock to buy
    the new one

Portfolio monitoring is not optional
Portfolio monitoring
  • Portfolio monitoring is an ongoing exercise that
    you need to conduct to be aware of the
    performance of your portfolio and take corrective
    actions as needed
  • This involves tracking day-to-day events / news
    in the sector/ stocks you hold
  • Once the monitoring activity is put in place, the
    next logical step is to take corrective action in
    terms of reducing exposure to current holding or
    adding exposure to a current / new holding based
    on the analysis
  • In the case of mutual funds as well, a similar
    monitoring activity has to be undertaken
