I have been investing for the last 6 years & i’m a silent reader in valuepickr for almost 4 years.I’m working in MNC & investing part-time . Most of my readings for indian market are from valuepickr
My portfolio is listed below
||consistent compounder, 20% growth YOY like clock work, low npa (historicaly), 50% of loan book is retail
||Covid impact on loan npa , credit card ban by RBI, tech outage
||No:2 player in gold finance (zero npa in gold ) , valuations looks cheap
||MFI book is risky + banks & fintech players trying to have pie on gold finance
||No:1 player in gold finance (zero npa in gold )
||banks & fintech players trying to have pie on gold finance
||self driving & electrification of automobiles is the emerging industry . KPIT have tie up with some of the big car brands in europe for ADAS, powertrain etc. only other listed firm in india is tata elxsi
||solutions have to be at par with Tesla, Google waymo for ADAS
|intellect design(recent entry)
||One of the few IT product companies listed in India . Saas + AMC (recurring revenue with not much expense) is already at 40% of revenue. IGCB & IGTB is in monetization phase. ISEEC is yet to win big deals. As intelect wins more deals , operating leverage will kick in & eps will grow very quickly . management guided for 10% revenue growth & 30% eps growth for next 2-3 years (my estimates are even higher). Global peers are trading at much higher valuations
||operating leverage will kick in only if they are able to win more deals . Licensing revenue means revenue growth is lumpy
|Mastek (recent entry)
||Digital transformation + cloud . Acqusition of evosys ( oracle cloud player) helps in cross selling. Management is honest & transparent.
||honest management . Growing opalware business + growing consumer durables business . Looking for 15-20% CAGR
||Covid impact & lockdown on business
||growing electical/ electrical business. Entry into new business segments in consumer durables every year (water heater, cooktop, air cooler etc ) . Expecting 15-20% cagr
|granules (recent entry after correction)
||bulk drug manufacturer. Trying to have formulations which should improve margins going forward.management looking for 20% revenue & PAT growth . PE looks cheap compared to growth projections
||raw material price increase on bulk drugs
||search +youtube + hardware+ playstore is contributing to the earnings now. 3rd biggest player in cloud & growing fast (40% almost) but now running at a loss. Google Cloud should turn profitable in a few years.Lot of unmonetized assets like WAYMO ( self driving) , google maps , android , fitbit acquisition. Leading player in AI (Deep mind)
||No :1 cloud CRM player . Plans to grow revenue by 100% by 2025. cheaper compared to other cloud players in P/S ratio because of nearterm impact on earnings due to slack acquisition
||Lots of acquistions by salesforce which is a major risk
|wisdom tree cloud etf ( recent entry)
||cloud is the growing segment in IT
||valuations are very high
please give your views & suggestions .
Hi Arun, Thank you for sharing. I am also in the same boat. Just a quick question, how do you invest in the US Stock Markets?
Hi Karan , You can start a trading account through ameritrade or etrade for investing in US.
I’m investing through etrade as i also have a corporate account with them (for RSU).
Groww also started US stock trading , if my information is correct.

Exited KPIT completely as valuation seems stretched around 650 during January end(was exiting partially from 240 onwards. (looking back exiting KPIT at 240 onwards was a mistake . i was early … but gradual sell off as well as gradual buys help me average out the fluctuations & help me capture the upside to some extent . 50% of my stake was sold in january at 650 when i thought valuation was stretched much beyond i was comfortable).
Adding money to intellect design but very slowly as it crossed my 10% limit . Max portfolio allocation limit is 15% & intellect is inching slowly towards that. So buying only during significant corrections like that seen in early march .
Started positions in US facing etfs:
Motilal oswal nasdaq100 : 8%
MAFANG : 4%
US equity has corrected more than india & is now comparatively reasonably valued .Will add more if there is more correction.
Started positions in FB around $220 …
I feel FB is cheap even with IOS headwinds .
FB Positives :
** Buybacks have accelerated & they will be buying back at these cheap valuations.*
** FB has a FCF of $40 billion even with heavy spending on metaverse & virtual reality & apple headwinds.*
** Whatsapp monetization not yet started (they can easily convert it into super app + payment gateway + ecommerce etc)*
** Instagram is the most popular social media website for millenials & GenZ…*
** Fb is morphing into a ecommerce site (similar to craigslist) with facebook market place & FB groups .*
** optionality with metaverse & VR/AR ecosystem*
cash position : 20% of net worth ( My networth is fully in equity + cash + RSU from company i work… very bold … keeping significant portion in cash to prevent from being going bankrupt )
(waiting for correction on nasdaq otherwise will keep in cash as buffer).
