My Dream Portfolio

In Excel sheet track the monthly returns of your portfolio and index over 1 year,then you will get fair idea is it possible to beat the index with these stocks.
Another way is search a fund which invest in these stocks or mostly in these stocks.
So, By paying 0.5 to 1% to MF they can track and manage.

why should beating an index should be criteria? You should be able to beat top rated Mutual fund by fair margin otherwise it is better to put money into mutual fund

Mutual Fund also consider Index as Benchmark for performance.
One Index and 100s of Mutual fund. You decide what is easy to track and mutual fund returns changes each day and ranking changes.

of course they do and their purpose is to beat benchmark. If you can’t beat or generate returns which is equal to benchmark then i would chose top rated mutual funds based on various criteria.

You don’t choose mutual funds based on rankings but based on consistency:

  1. Have they consistency been in top 50% (if it is 25% the better) for the given fund criteria.
  2. Have they consistency been in top 50% for the risk management (You can check alpha, beta, sharpe etc).
  3. Fund manager retention: Make sure fund managers are not rotating very often.

If you can’t beat Index by margin of 5% then i believe the amount of time and energy invested isn’t worth it. Just give a fee to MF and do something else in life. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for sharing your PF and rationale behind. For your 35 stocks people gave some sarcasm loaded with efficiency remark and if I disclose mine full PF i am afraid that I will be beaten left and right :slight_smile: (pun intended).
IMO, you should develop your own style keeping vision, conviction, financial goals in mind. The long term approach will give you the best rope to move along. Don’t get swayed by concentration vs diversification debate. Be at peace with yourself and keep learning along the journey. Add please be mindful of tracking your PF performance periodically and aligned with your long term goals.
Your most of the stock selection is good and so need not worry in short term. Mine VK PF too has some commonality.

Happy investing journey.

Dear respected members
I m well aware that this is a place of fundamental discussion only.
So no speculative talk to be done here.
But hopefully i may talk about my portfolio.
i believe in long term investment only.
i am firm believer of buy n forget strategy.

Some of issue are going to hurt market badly as i m coming through deep search…

  1. Market valuation at quite high.
  2. Rising inflation at lifetime high.
  3. China real state market about to collapse.
  4. US tech market bubble.
  5. Economy collapse in Srilanka, turky etc…some more country like argentina, Iraq, libya, Brazil.
  6. Cryptocurrency crash.
  7. Raining of IPO.
  8. LIC IPO will suck large liquidity.
  9. Geopolitical situation in world like Russia Ukraine china taiwan India.
  10. Civil war like condition in Gulf countries.
  11. End of pandemic with pandemic induced slowdown will result in process of rebalancing.
  12. Oil reserve shortage and rising oil prices.
  13. Rising rate of unemployment in China, unites state, India.
  14. 10 trillion dollars currency printed and pumped in equity market. Fed policy to taper inflation …USA.
  15. Low forecost for GDP growth in Europeon country.

I am observing a huge market correction even bigger than 2008, 2020.
Upto 10-15% correction is well acceptable for long term investors, but >20% correction is not acceptable.

What to do?
Should we try to protect our capital?
Or wait for opportunity?

Please give your suggestions.

Take out your capital requirements for near term and leave the rest. Peace of mind is better than high returns.

thanks @akash_das .
lets wait n watch.

Dear members
With above reasons i have taken my measures to protect my capital.
Let’s see what happens.
Will restructure my portfolio after storm over.

It is just so hard to time the market, No one anticipated market to go up so much after corona crash but then it market is up like crazy. My mantra is simple buy great companies at reasonable prices and see through crash if any. If you have bought great company at reasonable price it should not go down too much to start with and then it should recover quickly when market is back.

Market can crash 50% any time which is given so we all should be ready


@lokeshreddy2007 thanks for your kind suggestions.

@DocDhriru, As other members have told, it is hard to time the market. Many a times, sitting with cash expecting a market downfall may lead to opportunity cost. In my experience, good large cap companies with a MOAT and sound promoters always returns back to the median quickly in the event of a crash. I have learned to keep at least 5% cash always to deploy when such events occur. My 2 cents.
