Learning allocation as of my investment phase and Trying to Trim My portfolio.
at Max I would like to have 15-20 Stocks.


Great List! I think that your opinion/tolerance/patience matters the most on this list. It’s like some of the great investors would not like some of your companies, but you have a strong thesis and conviction on that name. So you should read, develop, the idea around each business, that you think of course will be the multi-baggers in the futures. Although you can read the other report, you should build your own story/narration of why this stock will succeed.
Hope it helps


I feel you should allocate more to large and midcaps stocks so to be shock-proof. Having all smallcaps can either yield lot or can ruin.

My Key learnings from Market till date

  1. Look for growth even if you have to pay a higher price.
  2. If you get Growth at low valuation buy Truck Load.
  3. When you decide to Buy or Sell just do it, it keeps you disciplined.
  4. I try to screen stocks based on their Profit and Loss Statement. Topline and margin shall be stable, best if improving.
  5. Next important thing for me is Capex that too wrt to Import Substitute or Opportunity Size expansion.
  6. Sometimes I try to play sector Tailwinds with Good Companies. Lancer Containers, Dalmia Bharat, Balrampur and Praj were such picks which gave very good return in short time. Thanks to @hitesh2710 Sir’s Guidance.
  7. Another Method to identify good stocks is once you find a good company look for investors then check their other holdings and scan their Kundali. I got Lancer Container while checking CheMcrux Investors @prasenjitp04 .
  8. Another learning to investigate a particular Industry comes from DRHP of IPO Companies . This i learned from @Tar .
  9. Now days i am reading data on twitter and it really helps.

Valupickr was My Light House to focus in right direction in Ocean of Investing.

It is very important to follow quality people so that you can learn and grow.
Next Steps where i want to focus is allocation. Identifying a good company is one thing but making real money on that company is another.

I will share my rationale about my Pickings in future posts.


Forgot to add 2 more Names:
24. Privi Speciality
25. DFM Foods

Basis of Investment:
This One slide was the Motivation behind taking stake

Current Clientele:

They were able to bring in few Chinese Manufacturer as well. I take this as very positive and this suggest about their quality as well as Margin.

Did Some backend Calculation will wait for story to unfold:

Recent entry of fund houses has further boosted the confidence:

Now Some Anti Points:

  1. Small Cap so always there is chance of Mismanagement.
  2. Interest cost seems high and they had one issue is recent past where interest cost got escalated >16% although it got settled now at 11%. Still it’s high will watch this section closely.
  3. They need to bring in more customers to utilize the capacity and break even faster.
  4. Execution of strategy over time.

Updated Portfolio: Sold My stake in RHIM,PolyMechPlast Fully. Increased stake in CalcomVision, Opteimus.

Best MicroFinance Company in India.


  1. Very Conservative in lending and aggressive in declaring NPAs(60 Days,90 Days Due Period).
  2. Ticket size is < 50 K, Retail loan to only those individuals who have been with clean history for more than 3-4 years.
  3. Due to Global Promoters Money is always available to them at good rate.
  4. Expanding into other states where others are struggling.
  5. India is still a agrarian Economy and there is very large Opportunity to grow.
  6. Microfinance Market in india has always witnessed one off event in every 5-6 years( Demonetization, Covid, SKS Micro, Assam). But Credit has withstood with Time and Proven it’s metal.


  1. Market is still not at full potential due to covid but surely improving.
  2. Madura is still a drag on overall company, waiting for cultural change there.
  3. Borrower turn bad as happened in Assam.
  4. Microfinance has to bear the burnt of any national disaster.

  3. Got License under PLI.
  4. Have capacity to manufacture 1.5L laptop Per Year. Operating around 75% utilization.
  5. With Wistron on board and Production slowly Moving away from China. Opteimus Electronics(Subsidiary) will become production house for Wistron.
  6. High Promoter holding(74.93%).


  1. Company was not able to Walk the Talk in Past.
  2. Debter, Working Capital and Payable days increasing to alarming levels.
  3. Need to watch the story and PLI how it plays out

Rajratan Global:
Company is well covered on the it’s thread on Value Pickr.


  1. 30% demand from New Vehicles,70% from Replacement Tyre sector.
  2. ICE,EV,Hydrogen whatever it is All need Tyres .
  3. Recently Most of the Indian Tyre manufactures have increased capacities.
  4. ~50% market is with Rajratan, Approved By Almost every Major World Manufacturer.
  5. With Chinese duty going away chinese Steel is no longer competitive with Indian steel in terms of Cost so indirectly Chinese Tyre manufacturers are coming to Rajratan Thailand.
  6. 20K MTPA capacity is about to start Production in Thailand,60K MTPA will come online in 1 to 1.5 years.
  7. New Plant coming up at Chennai will work hand in hand with local OEMs and will Augment the Thailand Plant due to it’s port proximity. All this will help in Margin expansion.
  8. In recent Presentation they claim of trying additional sectors of aluminum cladding for Optic fibers.


  1. Thailand plant enjoys tax benefit for existing capacity which will be levied from 2024.
  2. With Demand Increasing Arti Steel, Tata Steel(Read Competitors) may Increase capacity as well. With too much capacity sector may become commoditized and Margins will be compressed.
  3. Margins are at Peak, After enjoying 2 rapid years of growth company might slow down.

Sold my stake in Neuland labs yesterday, was riding on their innovation led growth which seems not as rosy as was on my mind.
Deployed the Cash to Ishan Dye and Chemicals which had fixed assets of ~30Cr and having a Capex of 100Cr So Major growth can come with backward Integration Margins expanded in current Quarter need to ensure how much of it is sustainable.
Also Purchased More of Shivalik Bimetal in Recent fall.
Sold Off My Calcom after it broke support of 120 waiting for it to go below 100 or Cross ATH to add it back.


Investing Points

  1. Any Good Company in it’s journey makes a name for itself through Quality and Product(Services). That is why during down time also it is important to remain invested in such companies because it’s just about time when next leg of growth starts with new initiatives. Promoters of such companies also play a big role in this ride.
  2. While Investing in finance companies one thing where I put most emphasis to check is How good and conservative promoters are. Generally such companies are available at premium compares to peers but it’s worth it. Such companies tend to survive and thrive longer in market.
    learned this from Peter Lynch book and Observed in Market e.g Credit Access Grameen.

Just one feedback, on lighter note the portfolio name says common man’s portfolio but most stocks are not common…

:smiley: He He.
Original name was “AAM AAdmi Portfolio” short for “AAP” but VP Moderators asked me to make the name apolitical :wink:.
Now coming to stocks it is more about methods of a new bee how he/he starts and matures into a investor after years of learnings mine is somewhere in between.
