Dear Reader,Staying invested may be easier said than done when the markets are in bear grip, but it is a necessity for long-term wealth creation. Patience will pay rich dividends to those investors who learn to weather the storm. In fact, investments made in right set of companies during bad market conditions rewards long term investors in much bigger way.We strongly believe that this is a great time to buy good quality small and mid size companies that have been beaten down. No one is talking about small caps these days and that’s the strong reason why we should invest in this segment. It’s wise to be greedy when there is fear surrounding small and mid caps. This is not the first time small caps have fallen out of favour and then gone on to recover smartly.To make our readers understand the benefits of staying invested for long term and continue investing in small caps and mid caps during bad times like we are experiencing now, we have released - Multibagger Small / Mid Caps and ..

FIIs continued their heavy net selling of equity during the week. Their total net selling was worth Rs 67.9 Billion. DIIs more than matched FII selling, but couldn't prevent sharp falls in Sensex and Nifty. Their total net buying was worth Rs 82.8 Billion, as per provisional figures.The automobile sector remained in slide mode during Jul '19.

How Investing in Small Cap Stocks lead to Wealth Creation?

17 days ago  
Business / Blogs/ Saral Gyan Blog  
Dear Reader,Do you know small investment of Rs. 10,000 a month over a period of 10 years can help you create a corpus of Rs. 25 lakhs. Total amount invested over period of 10 years by you will be Rs. 12 lakhs and you will have profit of Rs. 13 lakhs. Not Good? This might look less to you as we are assuming returns of 13.5% per annum. If we assume returns of 27% per annum, your corpus will be Rs. 50 lakh and your profits would be more than 3 times of your actual investments that too when you are investing a nominal amount of Rs. 10,000 on monthly basis. Impressive! Right?You might think that investing in mutual funds could be one of the way to start SIP (Systematic Investment Plan). However, returns may not be that high which you can generate by directly investing into good quality small and mid cap stocks. Hence, we suggest our members to start SIP by directly investing in stocks every month. What you are suppose to do is to invest your savings in a particular stock once in a mont..

Small Caps Stocks & Once in a Decade Opportunity!

Business / Blogs/ Saral Gyan Blog  
Dear Reader,If you were investing in small cap stocks in the year like 2016 and 2017 and stopped investing now due to recent carnage in broader markets, believe us you are making a bigger mistake. Do not allow your emotions to take control of your equity investment decisions, instead inculcate habit of investing in discipline manner.Small caps being most volatile tend to offer best investing opportunities during turbulent times. Retail investors usually make mistake by buying stocks at higher levels due to greed factor and later exit due to panic and fear of further erosion of capital. This phase has happened earlier also and good quality small and mid caps have always bounced back, not only recovering all losses but also delivering much higher returns from previous highs. Good sentiments as well as bad sentiments do not last forever.If you analyse BSE Small Cap Index YoY returns, you will realise that small cap index not only recovered but also delivered astonishing returns in sh..

Business / Blogs/ Subhankar Blog  
Gold chart patternThe daily bar chart pattern of Gold shows three clearly identifiable consolidation patterns - a 'falling wedge', a 'rectangle' and a 'symmetrical triangle'. All three patterns formed after the 'golden cross' of the 50 day EMA above the 200 day EMA technically confirmed a bull market.After breaking out above the 'symmetrical triangle' on Wed. Jul 17, gold's price touched a 52 week high of 1454 on Thu. Jul 18. Note that all three technical indicators showed negative divergences by touching lower tops, which triggered a pullback to the top of the 'triangle'.Daily technical indicators are in bullish zones after correcting overbought conditions, but are not showing much upward momentum. MACD is moving sideways below its falling signal line. RSI is hovering just below its overbought zone. Slow stochastic has bounced up after slipping below its 50% level.The US Dollar index has been consolidating sideways between 96.40 and 97.20 since Jul 5.

Potential 5-Bagger Stock in 5 Years - A Secular Growth Story!

one month ago  
Business / Blogs/ Saral Gyan Blog  
Dear Reader,The small and mid cap rally ended in Jan 2018 amid concerns over high valuations, waning domestic flows after re-categorisation of mutual fund schemes by SEBI, liquidity crunch and corporate governance issues. From their peak levels last year, mid cap and small cap stocks have witnessed significant correction over the past 15 months in spite of better bottom line of mid and small cap index companies compared to large caps.It’s interesting to note that profitability of mid and small caps jumped 50 percent and 27 percent respectively in last one year against 7 percent earnings growth for Nifty 50 stocks. However, while major indices Sensex & Nifty is hovering at all time high delivering returns of 15% and 12% respectively since 1st Jan 2018, BSE Mid Cap and Small Cap index is down delivering returns of -23% and -33% respectively during the same period. With divergence of ~40% since Jan 2018 between small caps and Sensex large cap stocks, its very likely that we can s..

Softening WPI has reinforced expectations of a further interest rate cut by RBI.India's merchandise exports fell 9.71% YoY to US $25.01 Billion in Jun '19. Imports declined 9.06% YoY to $40.29 Billion - a 4 months low. Trade deficit narrowed 8% for the month to $15.28 Billion.

After crossing above all three EMAs into bull territory, oil's price formed a small 'reversal day' bar (higher high, lower close) and pulled back to its 200 day EMA.Daily technical indicators are in bullish zones. MACD is rising above its signal line. RSI is above its 50% level but showing slight downward momentum. Slow stochastic re-entered its overbought zone, but is slipping down. Bears are giving ground grudgingly.

6 Major Reasons for Decline in Small Cap & Mid Cap Stocks

Dear Reader,History has taught us that companies with strong businesses survive during tough times. Looking at ongoing crisis in NBFC sector, only the companies who followed conservative lending practices have survived recent crash. During these panic times in broader markets, there are businesses which we believe not only survive this tough environment but also emerge as winners going forward in medium to long run.Market is giving one of the rare opportunity to get quality stocks at bargain prices. Remember, such opportunities do not last for long! Since beginning of 2018, we have seen severe correction in broader indices. As on date, BSE Small Cap & BSE Mid Cap Index is down by 32% & 21% respectively from their all time high made in January last year. Steep fall in broader indices have hurt sentiments and created panic for many of retail investors who got into market during last couple of years. Its important to know, whether you w..

1) Why plants don't die from cancer?I recently watched the fantastic documentary series on Chernobyl. I would recommend it to anyone interested.Chernobyl’s exclusion zone isn’t devoid of life. Wolves, boars and bears have returned to the lush forests surrounding the old nuclear plant. And when it comes to vegetation, all but the most vulnerable and exposed plant life never died in the first place, and even in the most radioactive areas of the zone, vegetation was recovering within three years.Critically, unlike animal cells, almost all plant cells are able to create new cells of whatever type the plant needs. This is why a gardener can grow new plants from cuttings, with roots sprouting from what was once a stem or leaf.All of this means that plants can replace dead cells or tissues much more easily than animals, whether the damage is due to being attacked by an animal or to radiation.https://www.pbs.org/newshour/science/why-plants-dont-die-from-cancer2) The downfall of RanbaxyThe Ranb..
                 

Multibagger Small / Mid Caps & Long Term Investing Report

one month ago  
Business / Blogs/ Saral Gyan Blog  
Dear Reader,We are experiencing lot of hopelessness along with fear towards equities in 2019.  The reason is the carnage in stock prices of many well-known established companies over last 18 months. Retail investors have taken the back foot and lost their faith and conviction towards investing in small and mid caps. We understand that it is really frustrating to see the Sensex and Nifty at all time highs while the BSE Small Cap and Mid Cap indices hovering at much lower levels compared to last year.Since Jan 2018, Nifty and Sensex delivered positive returns of 10% and 8% respectively, BSE small cap index slumped 31%, while BSE mid cap index dropped 20%. Though these numbers tell us what the overall index lost, individual small and mid cap stocks were touching 52-week lows every other day and individual damage to most of the stocks in this category was to the tune of 50-60%, some even more than that. Despite that we are quite excited about opportunities emerging in small ..
