We don't buy stocks, we buy the underlying business.We are too young to have a philosophy. It is very important that you know about our investment framework as your hard earned money will be deployed in companies based on this framework. A one year period is very small to judge our investment philosophy and we would like it if you judge us over a five year period, or atleast a three year period. We track a select group of companies (~ 100 companies) ranging in market capitalization from less than Rs 100 Crores to more than Rs 40,000 Crores. In short, we have no bias towards a micro cap, small cap, mid cap or a largecap. Can't a $10 Billion company become a $50 Billion company? All our investment ideas are generated from this universe of companies that we track.
A typical company that we invest in is selected based on multiple factors such as financial health, growth of both the industry and the company, valuations, etc. There are many statistical and fundamental models deployed to find the right investment for your portfolio!
Every company that we select is expected to be held for atleast 3 years. We believe in the power of compounding and the ability of Indian businesses to create wealth. A bad stock with a good portfolio allocation is a lesser harm than a good stock with a bad portfolio allocation. That is why we give so much emphasis to portfolio allocation.
