I am totally surprised that Nifty small cap index returned 56% YTD. Most of the MF (including small cap funds) could not beat the index. Appears like things are turning the US way as buffet mentions that fund managers picks lag behind index returns.
I am curious to know how other investor portfolios performed during the same period (YTD). I feel there would be way many experienced retail investors who are not popular like vp seniors but have exceptional picking skills. I feel we are missing inputs from them. I would like as many people as possible to participate and provide inputs so that we have enough data from investor community within.
This is just an review exercise and just for educational purpose.
I would like the investors to mention
- Portfolio returns they generated (YTD or any specific time frame)
- Balance of index stocks they hold (small/mid/large). Portfolio size
- How they found those investments - stock ideas (valuepickr/friend/personal research/news)
- What they feel could have done better. How would they invest again if they are send back through time machine. (any learnings, tricks they learnt from experience). Both fundamental and technical picking skills are worth mentioning.
