Our investment philosophy and frequently asked questions
We are value investors. We will look at value buys, mispriced bets, turnarounds, contrarian bets. We will only invest where we find value. This requires understanding of underlying sector, understanding the balance sheet and financials, forecasting growth possibilities, and arriving at intrinsic value. Our endeavor is to buy companies where current price is below intrinsic value. Our endeavor is to outperform market during bull as well as bear phase of the market.
We are market-cap agnostic. We suggest stocks which are above a threshold market-cap with sufficient liquidity. If we find value and suitable opportunity then we can go for large cap stocks, however, our primary focus remains mid and small-caps.
We give about 8-10 new recommendations a year, with suggested portfolio weight in each of the companies. We give periodic updates on the recommendations. Though our endeavor is to give these 8-10 recommendations in a year, we give these based on market conditions. If market is not supportive or if we feel there is over-valuation, we may give fewer recommendations. In case where we give less than 8 stocks in a year, we will be extending the subscription period at no cost to the subscriber till a minimum of 8 new recommendations in the subscription period is given. The idea is to not give recommendations just for the sake of it. The primary importance is the interest of our subscribers. If during a year we end up giving more than 10 recommendations then also we will not reduce the subscription period of the user.
We will be publishing research reports to our paid subscribers online on our portal. We will be providing against stock name price range to buy, percentage allocation to the stock.
Over the next 1-2 years, we will help subscribers build a portfolio, with percentage allocation in each stock recommended. We will also be giving exit calls on the recommended stocks depending on valuations.
Example: Let's say you want to invest 20 lakhs over the next 1-2 years. We suggest you always keep liquidity of 15% (i.e 3 lakhs in above example) in your bank account. We advise that, whenever a recommendation is given one has the funds available to buy. Let's say we give a stock recommendation "XYZ" with a suggested allocation of 10%. Subscriber should buy 2 lakhs worth of stock "XYZ" in the price range suggested. Subscribers can buy over time or at one go depending on their comfort, provided the buy range is respected. And create another 2 lakh of liquidity in the bank account, to replenish it to 15% liquidity. So over a period of time, one can build a portfolio and deploy this amount, as we keep on giving recommendations.
On current recommendations page (only for subscribers), one can track the investments recommended along with the research report, subsequent updates on the stocks, and also exit calls, if any.
- The investors who have a minimum investible amount of Rs 10 lakhs or above to invest (over a year) should ideally subscribe to our services. At this minimum amount it may make an economic sense.
- The investors who are planning to invest for a minimum of 3 years. Our services might not be suitable for investors who have a short-term horizon of less than 3 years. Our services are suited for long-term investors.
- Investors who understand that during corrections and bear markets, portfolio can turn negative, though our endeavor will be to protect the investment of our subscribers with a fall lesser than the market during these times.
We give periodic updates as and when it is necessary. Similarly, we will be giving exit calls in the recommended investments.
We do not recommend buying beyond the range. Our returns will be bench-marked against the buy price we suggest. This will ensure minimum variance from benchmark returns and subscriber returns.
For subscribers who joined after a recommendation is given, we suggest to add only in buying range, provided we have not given exit call.
We only look at valuations as our core philosophy is value investing.
No, we do not promise any guaranteed returns. Equity investing involves risks, especially for shorter terms and subscriber must understand these risks.
Multibaggers are not planned. They happen during the course of investing. This requires holding and staying put with your winners as long as they are not overpriced. We will be CAGR (compound annual growth rate) focused on our portfolio. As ultimately, CAGR on your portfolio is more important than multibaggers.
We are market-cap agnostic. But we avoid penny stocks. We will be having a threshold market-cap for our recommendations. We will also be considering liquidity in the stocks we recommend. The illiquid stocks have high impact cost and it might be difficult to sell them.
The subscription charges and plans are available on the Services and Pricing page. We do not offer any discounts.
Yes. We will be publishing research reports on our recommendations. We will try to make them, simple and easy-to-understand. We will be doing both qualitative and quantitative research. That includes understanding financials and keeping track of the business on an ongoing basis.
Our endeavor is generate higher returns than markets. Basic philosophy is to look at stocks that can double in 3 years. But, it does depend on market conditions and company performance. We will actively be tracking both. However, we do not guarantee any returns.

The volatility exists in the stock markets and that is why we suggest to have a long term view on the markets. In long term, chances of losing money in the right portfolio reduces significantly.
