Arpit Dream Portfolio 2019

Hello All,

I am planning to create a Portfolio in 2019 for next 5 years with 15-20 stocks and minimum 5% allocation to each business. I will diversify it across Large, Mid and Small cap. Also I want to diversify it among different sectors to minimize the risk. Max allocation to single stock will be 10% and to a particular sector will be 20%.

Criteria for selection of stocks :

  1. Management Quality is first
  2. Financials has to be good and improving
  3. Valuation will depend on the business and growth opportunities. So it will be a mix of under/fair/over valued stocks in Portfolio

Planning to buy on dips and not in one Go.

  1. Technology :
  • TCS/LTI/Sonata

Thanks for the response, however I didn’t understand clearly. You want me to put up rationale for Individual stock selection basis or something else ?

Good to see your watchlist. I have few from above list. Personally none from Pharma and none from typical IT company stocks because of too much external factors involved like USFDA and US policy including Dollar up downs.

Would like to know what you are holding right now.

Continuing to my first post below are the stocks am holding right now and a single point Rational for buying these business :

  1. LTI : Holding From IPO : Mangement and future growth in IT
  2. LTTS : Market Leader and positive on IoT, Autonomous Vehicles etc
  3. Bajaj Finance : Market Leader and Retail Finance is less affected due to small size loan
  4. L&T Finance : Banking on management capabilities and NBFC sector growth
  5. Natco Pharma : Good Financials, Management, and in complex products. Looks undervalued
  6. Suven Lifescience : Betting on CRAMS business and Global Presence.
  7. Rbl Bank : Recently listed is growing rapidly. Potential to be next HDFC.
  8. Yes Bank : Entered recently on downfall, Excellent financials and growth seen in Past.
  9. PEL : Bet on Ajay Piramal who has created wealth over last few years for its shareholders
  10. Minda Ind : Sector Leader in Ancillary and an Established brand and great client List
  11. Balkrishna Ind : Best In Tyres off the highway, Exports,good growth seen in past.
  12. Sterlite Tech : Leader and with 5G coming in Optical fibre demand to remain high.
  13. HDFC Life Ins : Management says it all and Insurance penetration is less but likely to increase in future. HDFC remains the choice after LIC

Requesting feedback from @hitesh2710 @desaidhwanil @basumallick and other members of the VP board .

The list includes good companies and may of them have dominant place in their sector. Personally I would be a bit wary in names like Yes Bank. (though its a personal opinion only).

Maybe you could add a couple of good small cap names to the list which could provide the extra delta to the portfolio whenever the small-midcap space starts getting market favour back. As of now they suffer from market apathy and these are the best times to buy out of favour good companies.


Superb picks… we have a lot of stocks in common! What’s your take on balkrishna fir the short term?

Just a thought, may want to have a look at eclerx and page(though) expensive.

VPickers Let me know your views about my above Portfolio selection and how does it look for a 5 year duration holding with Periodic Reviews.


I have read this discussion off late. But I would like to add my view when you build your portfolio for more than 3-5 years. All Portfolio stocks move in their own orbit of ups and downs. You must look at reviewing them always from Risk Management point of view also. Sometimes you are unable to book gains at good times and then your full one cycle is wasted in waiting for the up move again after months of waiting. I am not a valuation expert but I manage my high concentration scripts with my unique excel algorithms. Queries Welcome for interested persons. Can give examples by stating recent downfall in market and exits signals as per my Risk Management Algo Excel. Thanks for sharing your views. It was a great learning.

Going through the picks in detail, what I feel is too much of diversification,eats away the returns.
Had I been in your place, I would have gone with the Sector Leader & increased my allocation there, once I am thoroughly done with doing my Homework.

Capital & Time is finite & one should be equally considerate towards this, the way they are towards choosing a pick.

I refrain myself from naming any specific business on any Social Platform, but definitely Consumption is going to continue as a theme & Consumer Financing is going to go as big, as times of ancestors of Cash in Hand are gone & we live in times of BUY NOW & PAY LATER.

Managements which have a clear vision & execution capabilities, focus & hungry for growth but controlled & not aggressive & finally growth should be sustainable.

Filter your businesses on these parameters & you will definitely find but obvious results.
