Top 5 Picks - Abhishek

Here are my top 5 picks at this time. Holding time-frame is 3-5 years.

1). Shriram Transport Finance Company - India’s leading NBFC. Niche business which is practically a monopoly. Interest rate easing should augur well for the company in the long run. Shrirams are well known for their conservative management. More or less 20-25% growth expected CAGR for the next 5 years ( lower in the current or next year and picking up later).

2). Mayur Uniquoters - Well discussed stock on the forum. Nothing to add. I like the fact that they are preparing to scale up by recruiting senior industry people. Here scope of opporunity is very large.

3). PI Industries - Again, well discussed stock here. Thanks to Donald for coaxing me to look at this despite my initial biases :-).

4). Astral Poly - Again, well discussed stock here.Good growth prospects in the medium term. Not very certain of a longer time frame, but looks good for a 3 year horizon atleast.

5). Yes Bank - I like the way the bank is managed. Banking in India is a sure shot business with limited downside if managed well. Large growth prospects.

I have significant % of my portfolio in all these 5 stocks above. Other significant positions I have are in Sintex, Supreme, Opto & Titan. Beginning to build positions in eclerx as well.

Views welcome.


Hi Abhishekh,

Eclerx looks gr8 on Numbers front, My only query is, Their major business comes from Europe , don’t u think the current mess in europe will have any impact on this one?

Sorry about the last post but my comments didn’t appear… so here i go again! Not an expert but i think since it is in KPO, the companies would need their help in downturns too… so might surprise us with not much of drop in earnings!!

The biggest risk to my mind for eclerx is the reliance on their top 5 clients. The top 5 contribute about 85% I think. Another, not so critical risk, is the possibility of the larger IT companies (with BPO subsidiaries/divisions) getting into this high-end BPO/KPO business.
