Pravin's Portfolio

Dear Esteemed Community Members,

I am excited to share my portfolio with this admired community, eager to receive your valuable feedback and insights. While my early investing endeavours may not have yielded significant success, I skilfully harnessed some profit opportunities that arose during the unprecedented Covid pandemic.

It was fortuitous timing that one of my closest friends introduced me to this forum shortly before the outbreak of Covid. Since then, this platform has proven to be an invaluable resource in shaping my investment approach and bolstering my decision-making process. The collective wisdom and expertise shared by the members here have played a pivotal role in refining my investment strategies.

With great enthusiasm, I now submit my portfolio for your review. I invite you all to engage in high-quality discussions, sharing your observations and providing constructive comments. Your expertise and perspectives are instrumental in fostering an environment of growth and refinement.

Furthermore, I aspire to make my own humble contribution to this community. I am eager to share my insights and knowledge, believing that collaboration and knowledge exchange are the catalysts for individual and collective advancement.

As I eagerly await your feedback and engage in meaningful discussions, I extend my sincere gratitude for your time and consideration.

With warm regards,

Investment rationale are as follows:


The company aims to increase its store count to 150 by 2025, with the current number of stores at 105. They have opened 5 stores in the current fiscal year (as of May 2023). They expect a minimum growth of 20%, although historically they have achieved growth rates of 27-28%. The poor sales in March 2023 and the impact of higher taxes due to the changed tax system (IND AS) affected their performance in Q4 of that year.


KEI is a debt-free company experiencing a projected 16-17% growth in the next few years, primarily driven by a strong momentum in cable demand. There is expected demand in real estate, the solar industry, and other central government infrastructure projects. The export and brownfield capex in their Silvasa plant will contribute to a 17-18% growth rate.


The company is expanding in the global market due to changes in demand. They operate in three segments, with EbitDA ranging from 22-25% in two sectors and 9-10% in one sector. Currently, their capacity utilization is at 35%. The company expects similar and sustainable growth in the future. They face no domestic competition in the shunt side segment, but there are competitors in the international market. In the medium term, the company believes their current margins are sustainable, and they anticipate further growth with increased volume. Sales Potential post expansion may grow up to INR 1,600 Crores.


According to Hitesh Doshi, founder of the Waaree group, the revenue is expected to grow from 6,821 to 21,000 within 2-3 years, which represents a significant increase.


The company also experienced growth in its loan distribution, indicating the success of its lending services. Furthermore, Paytm’s commerce business gained momentum during this period, contributing to its overall revenue growth.


Company provides guidance for the next two years, with a benchmark growth rate of 20-25% based on past organic growth. It’s has very strong management.

INFOSYS /Reliance:

I have already invested in many small caps. Investing in these companies will provide me base. I expect even it falls, it will come back. Doing SIP with small amount per month.


It’s from one of most ethical group. Price of this stock can be 800-1600 in few years based on bull and bear case. It is 68% into vehicle finance.


They have given guidance for a PAT of â‚ą1,000 crores in the financial year 2026-'27. While the company expects a normal seasonality pattern, they anticipate a larger drop in savings due to tax changes. They are optimistic about achieving a positive PAT in the current year and expects the same for the next year.


This stock fits on principle “purchase and hold for long term”. HDFC Bank has consistently shown strong performance in terms of credit growth, maintaining a stable asset quality, and achieving superior return ratios even during various credit cycles.


FY24 should be completely free of any abnormal tax, and they’re expecting around 200-220 Cr. of PBT in FY24. PBT for 2023,2022,2021 are 84,20,12 respectively. My thesis in Ugro is that it’s quite cheap for the business model that they’ve built, and in my view, it is as cheap today as RACL and Shivalik were in the past. If they can execute and prove themselves on asset quality, if RBI continues to have a favourable view towards co-lending, and there isn’t a black swan event in MSME lending, a business that can generate 5% RoA at scale shouldn’t trade at book value. The thesis suggests that the business’s Return on Equity (RoE) will increase to 18% in the next two years due to previous hard work. With expertise in multiple sectors, the business could potentially trade at a market capitalization of 5000 Cr, offering a chance to earn 2-3 times the investment in around two years.


The company has a positive outlook for the next few years, expecting to achieve growth of 15% or more. For the next year, they have provided guidance of 12-14% growth. The management has visibility into the company’s performance for the next two quarters and aims to maintain Operating Profit Margins (OPM) around 33%.


Good set of results in last few quarters. They target to grow 25-40% in AUM. They have immense opportunities due to government’s emphasis
on rural and semi-rural India.


Results for March 2023 looks good. EPS is 16.58 compared to 9.70 for same quarter in last year. Yearly results are also good.

APL Apollo Tubes Limited:

December and March quarter could be good for us. Primary vision of Sanjay Gupta is to raise it to 5 million by 2025; the second vision is how can they go to 10 million tons in 2030.


The company supplies glass bottles to various industries, including alcohol and medicine. Management has set a growth target of 15% to 18% for the next financial year. The company’s net debt is approximately 500 crores with 700 crores in debt and 250 crore in cash reserves. They have acquired Hindustan Glass, which is valued at 3000 crores. However, they need to invest 500-700 crore in capital expenditures (capex) for this acquisition. It will take 6-9 months for the company to break even with Hindustan Glass.


It’s in business of solar power generation. As per Q4FY23 concall, they are expecting 50-60 % top line growth at least next 2 years.

I request @hitesh2710 @sinha124 @vikas_sinha and other community members to review. Thanks in advance for your effort.


Why one stock is 41% in the PF? Considering that it has given negative return, it is the not the case of allocation getting doubled or tripled, or you had been averaging up, so the stock occupies 41% now, which was not the case before?

Do you also have an equity MF PF, so the direct equity PF is small compared to this, so 41% is not big compared to your overall equity?


Hi…2.9% of Infosys amd 2% of HDFC bank wont be able to provide the base you expect it to provide. Kindly also discuss your framework of position sizing for different sectors and stocks.

Suppose they successfully achieve PAT of 1000cr in FY 2026-27, what multiple you are expecting on that?

Thanks for your review. Below is an analysis of my key positions in different sectors:

Electronics - Consumer- 41.1%
Cables - Power-9.1%
Electronic - Components-8.1%
Renewables- 7.1%

I do not have a specific framework for my stocks. However, I prefer stocks with visibility. I use technical analysis to adjust my allocation and re-enter the stock if a stock is badly performing.

I am interested in increasing my allocation to HDFC Bank, Infosys, ITC, and Reliance to establish a base for my stock portfolio.

Thank you for your review. I have a positive outlook on the growth potential of Aditya Vision. If they can consistently maintain a growth rate of 20-30 percent over the next three years, it would significantly enhance the performance of my portfolio. In order to manage risk effectively, I plan to gradually reduce my allocation to Aditya Vision to less than 30% over the period. Currently, my allocation in mutual funds constitutes 10-15% of my overall portfolio.

All good choices, maybe a bit too many, if there is good level of conviction then those bets should have higher weights. Some of the large caps can maybe eased out, the point of smaller caps is the low discovery and hence disproportionate gains on elevated growth profile.

Aditya vision has an unexplained margin jump while sales declined during covid period. Any of its retail strategies cannot be said to be exclusive to it. Such a dominant market share in one state will put limits on growth to just the overall market level. The business group is savvy no doubt, running 9to9 supermarket and fastfood franchises at their retail complexes and saturating the visibility. Such a large position, if it had grown organically to this size in your folio, would have been better, just placing an initial bet of this size has risks which seem to outweigh the reward.

We share more than a few names, so there we mostly agree. KEI is a good one definitely, Waaree, RACL too you can ride for long term. Some are not that much tracked by me so I will leave it at this point only. Personally I would trim #5, 7, 8, 11, 13, 15, 18 and 19. Keeping total below 20 seems reasonable. It is better to exit 15 and 18 at their peak, rest is largely due the large cap avoidance unless very well-deserved spectacular, sustained outperformer like KEI, Chola etc. There is enough safety in your choices and diversity as it is.

Aditya Vision’s recent financial performance has been highly favourable, significantly contributing to the robust growth of my investment portfolio. In response, I have executed profit booking manoeuvres to ensure that Aditya Vision’s representation within my portfolio remains below the 40% threshold. This strategic decision aligns with my objective to maintain a diversified portfolio and manage potential risk exposure.

Additionally, I have trimmed stocks count from 25 to 18, aiming for a more focused portfolio. I’m working towards a tighter selection of 12 to 15 stocks.
@Mudit.Kushalvardhan @kalpesh4430 @vikas_sinha @ChaitanyaC Thanks for your comments on my portfolio posted last time.

I don’t follow the company, but from what I can tell, it is tough to make any kind of call when a stock occupies 36% of the PF, if the absolute number is high w.r.t all your investments, which only you know. One can stay put considering the return is only 40%, and growth is visible for the next couple of years, and as such, it can double or even triple from here. Trimming and some profit booking can be done, and depending upon following the business, can add if the price moves up, averaging up at a higher price than the sold price of the trimmed shares. Or can stay put too, if one considers a company to be truly part of a long term PF, then there is no selling, no matter the occupying %, and such companies are rare, as there have to optionalities, future demergers, dividend, management pedigree, not to mention bought at reasonable price. So one can do what suits himself financially and psychologically.

I am still in the process of creating such a long term PF, and I also sell all of my position depending upon the situation, and rebuild my position again, sometimes correct, other times not so, so take my advice with a pinch of salt.

I don’t follow any of the stocks, but looks like the PF is diversified.

Hi Pravin…looks like a very diversified portfolio containing high growth companies…

Pravin this portfolio you have made is for long term or this is a momentum play with these high growth stocks…

This question has come to my mind observing the high PE of almost all your stocks…most of your stocks are trading at PE greater than 40 and few above 50 as well…

How much convinced are you with the expensive valuation of Aditya Vision, Shivalik Bimetal, Apar Industries and RACL Geartech and till what PE you will be comfortable for holding them for long term…
