We Move Wisely

We do not analyse stocks, we analyse businesses, mostly small & mid sized emerging companies which are dominant in an expanding niche, are run by a competent & ethical management teams and are available at fair valuations. A few good stocks are enough for creating lifetime of wealth & 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 potential upside which rules out most of the names from commodity space, those with high debt, from highly regulated sectors, government owned entities & those run by managements with questionable integrity or bad capital allocation history.

We are not arm-chair investors who just read annual reports and invest, rather we make sure we interact with the management and visit company's plants to understand business and its growth levers from ground up. 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 or like Wonderla Holidays where thesis is yet to play out despite holding for many years. However, every cycle we will have few winning outliers which will not only make up for positions where the thesis does not play out but considerably lift the overall performance of the portfolio. This cycle has the likes of APL Apollo (5x in 2.5 years) and Suven Pharma (4x in 1.5 years), the previous cycle had Tasty Bite Eatables (9x in 2.5 years). That’s the nature of the game – lose some, win big. It is important to be at peace with few loss-making or non-performing stocks realizing the outliers will more than makeup for them. No matter how much we try, unfortunately, there is no way we can fully avoid losing positions as it’s all too dynamic. 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/basket 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. 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 co-investing with us to be aligned in this thought-process.
