What is your expected horizon of each investment? - Personally i feel to keep them forever, but if the business closes then might sell
Seems like you have a concentrated portfolio. How much time can you spend researching ideas? - First i used to invest by taking others suggestions, but nowadays i invest based on looking at the business and the ratios. And if good company falls by a large percentage because of bad news i load those stocks (example Nestle, Sun Pharma etc)
Expected Return threshold - expect to earn around 10 to 15 % year on year
What is your investment style? - Long term investor
Thanks for replying. If your investment threshold is 10-15% then maybe index funds/NIFTY are the simplest way to get there, as long as you buy at reasonable multiples of NIFTY.
The reason i say this in large caps u would rarely get information edge. At max u will get temporary blips like Nestle. The challenge with this is that these blips are rare. So the better approach remains to be in index.
In case though u want to have higher returns then u might look at VP stocks and that realm.
32% in Infy is really huge unless you know something which no one in market knows
My recommendation- exit suzlon, SBI. They can be entered when things really change. There is a lot of mess in these cos.
PS- i dont hold any of these stocks
Interesting approach. If you can do this consistently and focus on large cap companies where the probability of the business bouncing back is much higher, then you will have a good percentage return. You need to be careful not to try it with small caps or mid caps because sometimes there business is not always as robust.
While the management has been seen to be share holder friendly, since it returned money to them after the sale of Agila to Mylan, yet one must remember that there is no inkling of the sale in any previous Annual Report. This sale surely caught the share holders by surprise. While the management did not short change the investors, they certainly did surprise them. What one would prefer it more predictability. I would like to know that if a product line or a business is built today, it remains with the company with predictable earnings.
