Investment Performance in April 2014

From this month, I also want to present this graph in a tabular form, to make it easier to understand. This is available below.

April was not such a great month. I only marginally outperformed the NIFTY, and probably underperformed the SBI Midcap fund, but not by much. This also brings the annualized portfolio performance into poor light, down from the over 100% run rate from the previous month.

Some of my top holdings underperformed severely last month. Cummins, Selan, IDFC, Larsen, Oberoi, Mayur, MPS, Sesa Sterlite and NTPC all fell last month, and these constitute 7 of my top holdings. I also exited Just Dial (at a loss), and MCX, though my holdings were rather small. Stocks which performed well last month included PTC India Financial Services (PFS), Clariant and Jaypee Infra.

All in all, a disappointing month. Depending on election results, we will see how the future plays out.
