We Move Wisely

We do not analyse stocks, we analyse businesses, mostly small and emerging companies which are dominant in their niche, are run by a competent and ethical management teams and are available at fair valuations. A few good stocks are enough for creating lifetime of wealth and these are the kind of opportunities we strive to unearth. We do not get interested in businesses until they have potential to give decent return over 3-5 years. We are obsessed about capital protection and hence first assess the downside risks before thinking about potential upside which rules out most of the commodity companies, highly regulated sectors, government owned companies and those run by managements with questionable integrity and bad capital allocation history. We channelize all our energies into discovering companies that have some sustainable competitive advantage run by an ethical and competent management; in other words, companies that have potential to be tomorrow's blue-chip.

We are not arm-chair investors who just read annual reports and invest, we make sure we meet or talk to the management and visit their plant to understand their vision and judge if they got any fire-in-the-belly traits. We also interact with other stakeholders mainly channel partners (dealers & distributors) and employees to get a first hand information on the management quality. Since our process involves a lot of qualitative as well as quantitative filters, we leverage simple yet effective tools like checklists to make sure we do not miss any important factor.

Hall of Shame

It is not going to be all multi-baggers only, which are infact far and few, and only clear in hindsight. We have had our fair share of lemons too - stocks which we eventually sold at a loss despite holding them for years. Currently, we have some stocks in our portfolio with drawdowns of as high as 50%, some of these can become permanent loss of capital if earnings/markets don't improve and we book loss to move remaining capital to better opportunities. Going forward too, there could be stocks where we eventually lose. However, that is part & parcel of investing in equity market. Betting on stocks involves dealing with uncertainties and making decisions with incomplete information. Given it is a moving target where investment thesis keeps evolving, no one can get it right all the time, no matter how strong the processes are. Even the best of investors and fund managers globally have not got it right beyond 6 out of 10 positions as per Peter Lynch.
Ultimately what matters is how we do at the portfolio level despite losing on some positions, as the winning positions more than make up for the losing positions - maximum one could lose in a stock is the invested capital, however there is no upper limit to returns in positions where we get it right. When we move four steps forward with winning positions, the losing positions could take us one or two steps backwards, finally what matters is if we are happy with moving net two-three steps forward. The 80:20 rule applies in investing too - 80% of the gains come from 20% of the positions. To win a cricket match, not every player has to hit a century, and ultimately what matters is winning the match (portfolio returns) and not how every player performed (individual stock performance) and our focus is on winning the game (portfolio returns). It is extremely important for the subscribers, who co-invest with us in our Model Portfolio, to be aligned with us in this thought-process.

+ - A Single Structure & Model Portfolio

We do not have multiple services (portfolios) or multiple structures (Advisory/PMS/AIF/Broking) which often leads to a serious conflict of interest. We are purely an advisory with just one model portfolio where we co-invest. It is as simple and transparent as it can get, period.

We aren't another run-of-the-mill advisory rather a team of full-time investors co-invested in the same stocks as recommended to our clients. We ensure our interests are aligned and we eat our own cooking.

+ - Independent Equity Research

We are not anyway into stock broking business hence do not embrace 'activity' just for the sake of it. We act when its important, otherwise we let money work and reap benefits of compounding.

+ - Opportunistic

+ - Cut Noise
