YourRaj's Portfolio

Need your critical evaluation and remarks

Dear Forum members and VP’s

I am new to stock investing and hardly 6 months old in the field of active investment in the share securities I need your help to reconsturct my Portfolio

Most of the companies in my current portfolio are well documented and researched by the VP’s in this plateform and i don’t think they need any new rational and are not hidden gems .

My biggest problem is that i have book profits and exit very soon in the past 6 months i have purchase the following stocks but not able to stick to the stocks This leads to lots of churning of the portfolio
Past holding from which exited fully

My specific question is : Do I need to restructure the current portfolio ? for the next two years
My Current portfolio

DHFL : leading Housing Finace gaint with stong mangment and inovative sales teams having potential to cater niche sectors and targeting middle and low income quality clients with strong evaluation process in place

Rain industries : One of the Best in it’s own class ,It is a market leader in both pet coke calcining and coal tar distilling, which are best described as oligopolistic.

PI Industry,Ajanta Pharma ,Ambika Cotton ,Mayur Uni do not require any introduction

MPS is my speculators bet for the turnaround

NATCO : is the pharmacy on the move to create the complex formulations with global presence and the the pructs are in the tube at the final stage .This company is also doing the job work for the leafding pharam companies around the global

Kitex Garments "; The world is growing and populaion is growing Every Parents want the best products perticularlly for the infants They are ready to pay the price i am Very Very LONG for the company .Except a few political problems but that will be over (i am not Jyotishi but speculating )

HEG is also leads the team Graphide and will hold the front runner batton for atleast next two years

IDFC Ltd and IDFC Bank "i am long on these newbeeies the merger with capital First strengthen its
Network and the new mangment will be making super moves However i am 19% minus and 12% minus in these accounts

The Best in my opinion and i am stronglly bulish for the company is the Chaman lal setia : Low cost Rice trader turned a major exporter from North .The product mix is unique However the global lower prices of Rice will impact the margions .recenttly they have opened a packing facility in gujrat lowering the transportation cost 'It can be FuTuRE KRBL"

DIs: These are not stock recomendation Please do your own research before investing

Besides writing down your rationale for buying a company, I think it is more important to write down rationale for selling a company. This will help you identify patterns in your decision making process that lead you to the sell decision. Once you identify these patterns you can prepare a short checklist that can be used in future before buying anything new. such a checklist will make sure you wont buy anything that you will soon end up selling (most likely at a loss) for all the same reasons. This will help you avoid the churn in your portfolio.

Thanks @Yogesh_s ji I had booked profit on NOCIL @30% and switched to Avanti which is 16% down although there is increase in supply os shrimps and global reduction of prices but the company is exploring new opportunities in Japan Also found that Avanti Feeds has commenced commercial production of the additional capacity of 1,75,000 MT of shrimp feed plant at Bandapuram, West Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh (AP), on March 19, 2018.

so I think it is good for Entry in the Marine Queen’s Stock .Your seasoned advice is well taken and writing down the short checklist for exiting.Thank you for helping the newbies like me

I would suggest you to find and study more about HEG. Over the last weekend I watched Deepak Kapur’s presentation on valuations in which he has shown how the graphite electrodes are really a cyclical play and how the story has already played out and in fact they are trading at ~4x the replacement cost and hence one should not get carried away by recent earnings.

(yourraj) #5

Thanks @rkatikam ji for the visiting the thread and for your pointers rergardng the graphide electrode’s fure there is two monthe sector analysis report which i would like to share with you .

it starts like

It will be great if you can share the link of Deepak kapur’s presentation (Till this time frankkly speaking i don’t know Who is Deepak Kapur ? Please don’t feel offended)

I learnt from the forum that it is YOUR money and YOUR conviction which leads YOU to buy the stock and unless untill YOUR thesis is right with right data source in place .I would like to share that in my case i use ratestar / screener / reuters / SMC /morning star websites for raw data .
You are very rightly pointed out that the graphide is a cyclic player i am just learning and please point out if any mistakes .However i find out the first quater of companýs data is healthy and a strong bet for me to enter in HEG
Your review will be highlly appreciated

(rkatikam) #6

I am not telling you to get out of it. All I was trying to say is that since it is a cyclical play you need to keep assessing the risks involved. YOUR Money, YOUR conviction, YOUR thesis are all correct. But at the same time how do you develop or hold on to your conviction and thesis is what is more important Also it is always good to be open to see what the opposing views are. Whether the conviction/ thesis has to be changed comes from listening to the opposing views. BTW Deepak kapur’s presentation is a webinar available on Usually many of them are paid webinars. But this one was free. If you register on the website, I think you will have access. Can you please try?
Also take a look at

Thanks the talk is really good and enriching the knoweledge .base .My take from the Mr kapur talks is

Still has views that next two years the rally will continue but when the major player who is unlocking the potential via starting it’s closed unit there will be a rush of supply .

The company’s has lock in contract of raw material and finished products in this sector

i shared the ICICI Q4 review so i can say that For the next one or say one half year (i don’t want to be Jyotishi to predit the top of the GE industry ) will be good growth at the same time i am looking for red flag . Thanks again for your opposing view

Also made Portfolio change
Reason: Find better options and achive predefined profit in the existing stock

Existed (NOCIL profit 30% in 6 months ) and entered in Avanti feed with 8% portfolio @18-04-2018 and now up by now 10.5%

Thanks @hitesh2710 for helping me to create exit startegy however the profit tempted me to continue hold the NOCIL but the Pivot points and closely watching volume play help me to make decision .

Lesson learned

"Profit / Loss of Captial is what YOU booked not what is NOTIOnaL"

(yourraj) #13

Update i feel little down to see my notional gains are eroding .I have realised handsome amount of profit during my six months on investing caree and ,as i mentioned before that
"Profit / Loss of Captial is what YOU booked not what is NOTIOnaL"

My conviction in the stocks does not allow me to exit Because i am investing for long term .This may be my lack of proper exit policy . I had made STOP loss in the mind Not in the SYSTEM
so i re read and read agin the beautiful lines of wisdom from Jim O’Shaughnessy is Chairman, Chief Investment Officer, and Portfolio Manager at O’Shaughnessy Asset Management. A professional investor for over three decades, he recently shared his wisdom on Twitter over a thread of 26 tweets. In this dispassionate and non-judgmental delivery, he imparts some amazing insights and wisdom for investors. some of them been reproduced below

. I don’t know how the market will perform this year. Or the next year. I don’t know if stocks will be higher or lower in 5 years. Indeed, even though the probabilities favour a positive outcome, I don’t know if stocks will be higher in 10 years. On the other hand… I DO know that, according to Forbes, “since 1945…there have been 77 market drops between 5% and 10%, and 27 corrections between 10% and 20%”. I know that market corrections are a feature, not a bug, required to get good long-term performance. I know that during these corrections, there will be a host of “experts” on business television, blogs, magazines, podcasts and radio warning investors that THIS is the big one. That stocks are heading dramatically lower, and that they should get out now, while they still can. I know that given the way we are constructed, many investors will react emotionally and heed these warnings and sell their holdings, saying they will “wait until the smoke clears” before they return to the market. I know that over time, most of these investors will not return to the market until well after the bottom, usually when stocks have already dramatically increased in value. I think I know that, at least for U.S. investors, no matter how much stocks drop by, they will always come back and make new highs. That’s been the story in America since the late 1700s. I think I know that this cycle will repeat itself, with variations, for the rest of my life, and probably for my children’s and grandchildren’s lives as well.

So i have learned following lesson
Patience is KEY Place metal filters let Notional gain or loss ride your mind
Assess the stock price and evaluate properly Don’t pay EXTRA .Sooner or Later the fools and his money is invited everywhere
Dont judge from the price you paid for the stock for reevaluation start over from the current price .
There are no shortcuts to have success in stock market
I AM Down BUT not DIED …
Happy investing

Its always better to set a loss percentage and exit if it crosses the number. I.did the mistake of holding BHEL long believing recovery and booked loss finally.

Also. once you feel stock reached price which is Over valued exit it . I did it in KVB.

@yourraj, i have a couple of observations for your portfolio.

  1. From what I understand, pharma is a very complex area, which is also kind of commodified in India. Generic pharma is very fragmented and I do not think any of the Indian pharma company has a pricing power. R&D in pharma is not a child’s play as there are global pharma giants 100 times better than our Indian counterparts. My question is how confident are you that you can properly value a pharma company considering all the complexities.

  2. Some of your stocks in textile, chemical and commodities need a contrarian approach where the entry price is everything and even the management cannot accurately predict what’s in store for the next couple of years. Are you willing to sit on the sidelines patiently for a long time to taste the fruit which may or may not bear depending on your purchase price.

  3. I know nothing about hotel stocks other than the fact the whole sector have been the worst performers over the past decade. Again why hotel sector and do you have the specialization to accurately predict the value of the stock you are holding?

  4. Why IDFC Group? These two stocks appear in none of my screeners as they do not stand out in any of the metric. Even capital first has been dragged down due to merger with IDFC Bank. On top of this whole bank sector is in a very bad health.

You do not have to reply to my message. These would be just questions to ponder over. If you got convincing answers, then you should continue to hold your stocks as I am not claiming to be an expert and these could as well turn out to be big performers over the next few years.
