No more monthly updates on investment performance



After long thought, I have decided to stop monthly updates on my investment performance, at least for a while.

There are many reasons for the same. Certainly one of the practical reasons is that I was spending way too much time on updating and refining my spreadsheets, neglecting more essential things. The other was that I was almost reviewing my performance on a minute to minute basis, and I think that that kind of obsessiveness results in too much activity on the stock markets. It is better not to know every minute what your performance is. The third reason is more nuanced. If indeed, I am a long term investor, why am I worried whether I have beaten the benchmarks daily, weekly, monthly or trimonthly. I should take a view on a stock at a particular price. If the price falls, I should buy more. Then I just need to review the performance every year, and try to beat the benchmarks every year. This is because my one and a half year’s intense experience has taught me that a) Markets often get it wrong in the short run and b) that momentum traders sometimes trade up a stock excessively, or sometimes punish a stock unreasonably. Momentum trading may be profitable for the people who practice it, but I cannot see myself trading solely on price, without any fundamental backing.

If markets do get it wrong in the short run, then why worry about performance in the short run. I should only worry about performance in the long run. And this is what I intend to achieve by not keeping on comparing myself to benchmarks.

I won’t overpay for stocks!!!


One should not overpay for stocks.

There is no question that sometimes markets get it spectacularly wrong. While broad market performance is often sentiment and liquidity driven, individual stocks are sometimes completely misunderstood, and the market simply does not give them their due.

Within the broad market today, there are a number of stocks available at PE ratios of 30-50. There are several others available below 10. The large majority of midcap and large cap stocks are available with PE ratios between 10 and 30. Why this wide divergence between PE ratios of different businesses?

As I have understood it over the last year and a half or so, markets currently like companies which

a) Have Good Corporate Governance

b) Have steady growth, notwithstanding economic conditions. Usually, a necessary condition of this is economic pricing power through some kind of moat – brand power, distribution power, unique location or asset.

c) Are present in sectors markets like for the moment, because of the market’s reading of macro or microeconomic themes.

d) Have high Return of Equity and High Return on Incremental Capital Employed

e) Have Low Levels of Debt, which again allows them to come through economic cycles unscathed.

As a result of this, companies which are currently available at “high” prices (in my parlance, high  PE ratios) are typically multinationals across the board (though especially those which own consumer brands, like Colgate), Pharmaceutical Stocks (like Sun Pharma), Indian Consumer Goods Stocks (like Marico and Emami) or Consumer Discretionary Goods Stocks (like Asian Paints). All these stocks share many of the above characteristics. The darling sectors of the markets are FMCG, Consumer Discretionary, and Pharmaceuticals. Autos and Auto Ancilliaries and Private Sector Banks are raring to join the party.

But it wasn’t always so. Rewind back to 2006. I wasn’t an active market participant at that time, but what I do remember is that HUL(which meets all the above criteria)  languished for a long time in the first decade of the new millenium. And what was going at crazy valuations- DLF. DLF did have unique assets (Land) and did have good growth, and was present in a market sector which agreed with the market theme of the moment.

But on all the other parameters, Debt Levels, Corporate Governance, Return on Incremental Capital, DLF actually scored very low.

While DLF and HUL are probably only two examples, I think it is hard to argue on the broad thesis that stock prices run up first, and then broad thematic explanations are fashioned later to explain the stock run up.

One enduring theme is the notion of Economic Moats. Popularized by Buffett-Munger, and then expanded by Pat Dorsey, Economic Moats seem to deliver enduring returns over long periods of time. But even here, there can be a slow decay of moats over time, (witness Coco-Cola and Microsoft, as vivid recent examples), and thus for investing over the long run, investors need to focus on more than just economic moats-they need to be careful about the price they pay for stocks. If one pays too much for a stock, no matter how great the structural and human characteristics of the business, then you cannot expect that over the long term, you can make great returns on your investment.

This is particularly true when one confronts the kind of bull run we are in, and which may, hopefully, translate to being a multi year bull run. In September 2013, all stocks, save for some FMCG stocks, were available at prices which would have given great multi year returns, One did not need to be a stock market genius to acquire stocks at the prices they were available at then and then just wait till they would give you great returns over time. But as the bull run proceeds, I am quickly becoming sad. While I still have capital to deploy, I do not find prices very attractive any more. But the uncertainty is killing: On the one hand, if this is a multi year bull run, then it is best to purchase today, otherwise one might miss out on all the great gains that are likely to accrue. In the next post, where I discuss contrarian investing, I will also discuss how a great stock price itself propels companies forward. On the other hand, if it turns out to be a chimera, then one needs to be very careful about the price one is paying, and the kind of business one is paying a high price for. Otherwise, one needs to start worrying about capital preservation, rather than return on capital.

The time has not come yet, but I do see a time in the near future, where I just keep enjoying the run up in stock prices while doing absolutely nothing in the market other than staying invested. As far as I am concerned, I will not overpay for stocks beyond what their earning capacity is, plus a small speculative element where they may find avenues for growth in earnings beyond the obvious. So the only alternative is to wait for others to do so. Gauging value of stocks, and then sticking to that notion of value, is my investment style.

 

Update:

Here is a nice article by Dr. Vijay Malik, which talks about the same principle of not overpaying for stocks, but in a much more analytical way.

Investment Performance October 2014



The last 2 months were not happy, from a relative performance point of view. The reasons for this are not difficult to see. I went on purchasing IDFC, Oberoi Realty and IL&FS Investment Managers, despite poor market performance. This general underperformance of some of my largest holdings was a prime reason for the underperformance. Other stocks which significantly underperformed also included Selan Exploration and Sesa Sterlite, partly driven by the Oil price fall. NMDC was another underperforming, based on low global iron ore prices, though NMDC’s own financial performance should continue to be robust.

Here is my graph of relative performance:

Here is a table of rolling returns:

Portfolio Composition at the end of October 2014



Here is a new edition of my portfolio composition. The last two months have not been particularly kind to my portfolio performance, as can be seen in the next post. In fact, partly due to the fact that I was travelling, and partly due to procrastination due to my relative poor performance in September, I missed putting up my portfolio at the end of September.

But here I am, with my portfolio at the end of October 2014. As usual, this is not a complete disclosure of my portfolio. This list is only of those scripts which constitute more than 1% of my portfolio. Nevertheless, I am also disclosing in the text below if there were major changes in the rest of the portfolio.

ICICI Bank (9) 1,614.05 948.6365854 70.14 1.01%

The movement towards consolidation continues. However, this is also tempered by the fact that I have bought new scripts in the last two months. Nevertheless, the number of scripts which have at least a 1% contribution to my portfolio is 37 (compared with 33 at the beginning of September 2014), and together they constiture 71% of my portfolio. As before 32% of the portfolio was invested in the top 8 scripts.

What have I been buying in the last two months? And what did I sell?

Well, I continued to purchase IDFC, Oberoi Realty and IL&FS Investment Managers, averaging down as the stocks fell all of September, and most of October. It requires great guts or folly to keep buying in the face of negative outcomes from a stock price point of view, and sometime in November, I hope to have a post which will talk about these dilemnas.

I also purchased a significant quantity of L&T and TCS, again as they fell. In addition, I added a small quantity of Jaypee Infra, Sobha Developers and DLF, when they fell rather sharply because of a weak real estate environment and negative news flow.

In general, I have also resolved to improve the quality of my portfolio, from a cap goods, finance and realty bias to more quality names with better moats. To this end, I made significant purchases of Indian Hotels (Convertible Debentures) Akzo Nobel (which now is in the list of 1% stocks), United Spirits (which is almost there), and Dr Reddy’s Labs.

In terms of my older themes, I bought significant quantities of Reliance, Bayer CropScience, India Bulls Housing Finance, Gujarat Pipapav Port, and Vardhman Testiles.

What did I sell? Only RS Software at a time when the stock really shot up. At that price of 730 or so, the stock is more expensive than say EClerx, and EClerx has a superior track record of governance, disclosure, earnings, and dividends. I still own significant RS Software, and given my purchase price, I will evaluate my position only after a quarter or two.

Banco Products (2) 142.1 56.2 153.02 1.00%

The stocks representing more than 1% of my portfolio now constitute 68% of my portfolio, and the number of stocks are 33. 32% of the portfolio is represented by the top 8 stocks. I fully intend to concentrate further, so that the top 8 stocks represent 50% of the portfolio.

However, the concentration of scripts has hurt me, since my top stocks, Oberoi Realty, IDFC, Selan Exploration, and IL&FS Investment Managers have significantly underperformed the market in the last couple of months. The only one amongst the top 5 which saw outperformance was eClerx Services. Other top stocks which underperformed included Mayur Uniquoter, IRB Infra, BKT and Sterlite and Shilpa.

The three stocks which saw major outperformance was my old favorite MPS Ltd., and Kaveri Seeds. NMDC and Larsen, while not majorly outperforming in the month, gave me the benefit of buying these stocks on dips in July.Old favorite Cummins continued to do well. Another stock that did well in August was SPARC. PTC India Financial Services and RS Software did remarkably well in August.

What new stocks did I buy? I bought some Exide and some Amara Raja, since both constitute a nice duopoly, I bought HPCL, because there is tremendous value embedded in the company, with or without GOI policy issues, I bought Kitex Garments on a ValuePickr recommendation, Mazda Ltd and Linc Pens on my own reading of the balance sheets and potential. I added to Indian Hotels on a dip after the result. I bought HIL on an India Nivesh Recommendation. Finally, I continued to buy IDFC on dips.

Performance Tracker for August 2014

Here is a graph of my investment performance in August 2014:

 

While I continued by relative performance over the other benchmarks, I am still quite disappointed with my performance in August 2014.

Why is this? Well look at the table of rolling returns below:

Returns My Portfolio Kotak Classic SBI Midcap Nifty
Last Month 6% 5% 7% 3%
Last 3 Months 18% 9% 18% 9%
Last 6 Months 64% 31% 41% 30%
Since Nov,8, 2013 85% 36% 67% 32%

So, while my portfolio still outperformed the large caps, the one month and 3 month performance over the SBI Midcap fund is disappointing.

Why was this so? Partly, I think because IDFC and Oberoi Realty have now a nearly 20% share of my portfolio. And these shares are hardly moving. As a result, the overall portfolio performance is getting muted. While this is disappointing, I still believe strongly in both stocks. And I am using the relative underperformance of these two stocks to buy more.

On a more positive note, the total assets being managed by me have grown to nearly 3 times what it was in November 2013. Part of it is a nearly 80% jump in the NAV. Partly, it is more investment.

Given that I believe we will have a secular bull run for some years if the Modi government performs, I intend to deploy more funds in the market. However, now each stock I intend to purchase is going to have some thing going for it, which is aside from government regulations, and which is unlikely to perform very poorly, if the promised economic agenda does not materialize.

Banco Products (2) 129.5 130.58 1.01%
Reliance (6) 975.4 29 1.01%

What has changed? For one, I have spent all of July 2014, increasing my stake in Oberoi Realty and IDFC. This was as per my earlier stated intention. Now, both stocks comprise around 10% of my portfolio. This is essentially in keeping with my objective to concentrate my portfolio. Sometime this month, I will write about my investment rationale for both stocks.

I sold all of my Clariant Chemicals, simply because it had risen out of sync with possible valuations, and invested the proceeds in eClerx services. Increasing my exposure to eClerx was also my stated intention in earlier posts.

I also increased my exposure to NMDC and Tata Global Beverages, on a dip in prices of both. I increased my holding in Shilpa Medicare and PI Industries (PI following nice results). Finally, poor Larsen and Toubro results for the quarter resulted in sharp dip in prices, which I bought into.

I sold out of Morganite Crucible, more for the sake of not investing in stories without any technological or brand edge. Instead, I dipped my toes into Bayer CropScience, and on the MNC theme, increased my exposure to Grindwell Norton. Finally, there was some buying of PTC Indian Financial Services and IL&FS Investment Managers, both on a relative dip in market prices.

Concentration continues apace. The stocks which comprise at least 1% of my portfolio are now down to 38, and the total percentage of these in my portfolio is now more than 75%.

My eventual aim is to increase the concentration even further, with 25 scrips comprising around 90% of my portfolio.

What stocks gave the best performance in July, 2014 within my portfolio?

IDFC for sure, following the RBI announcement on CRR and SLR requirements on infrastructure loans. IRB Infra, following a decent result, and positive government announcements for the roads sector. IL&FS investment managers, despite becoming ex-dividend.

From the ValuePickr basket, Ajanta, PI, Mayur and Shilpa, all gave great returns in July.

Another great stock last month was Bharat Forge.

Investment Performance in July 2014

After a relatively muted performance in June, July was again more of the same. Part of this was the overall relative poor performance of the markets. As far as my portfolio was concerned, there was outperformance vis a vis the Nifty, and I finally managed to outperform the small cap index too, but compared the SBI Magnum Midcap fund, the performance was not better.

Nevertheless, there was reason enough for satisfaction. My performance might have been even better, had I not lost some money in speculation based short term trading. I am still not able to do this well, and maybe I should just stop doing it. That, or I need to control my psychology better.

Here is the familiar graph of overall fund performance. As you can see, the total assets undermanagement are increasing very rapidly. This is because I am deploying fresh cash, and also because the portfolio is doing well.

 

I have tried to improve upon the graph a bit. I hope this is more intelligible than the earlier version.

Also, as always, a table of rolling returns:

Returns My Portfolio Kotak Classic SBI Midcap Nifty
Last Month 5% 1% 5% 2%
Last 3 Months 42% 14% 24% 15%
Since Nov, 2013 75% 28% 56% 26%

As you can see, since Nov 2013, my portfolio, in terms of the NAV, has increased by 75%. The Nifty, meantime, has increased only by 26%, and the SBI Magnum Midcap fund, by 56%. In a blended sense, between the Kotak Classic Fund and the SBI Midcap Fund (Blended in a ratio of 1:2. similar to the ratio of large caps to small caps in my portfolio), the outperformance in 3 quarters is around 30%.

As always, to understand how the NAV for my portfolio has been arrived at, I would refer you to the following post: Understanding the NAV Calculation

Investment Performance in June 2014

After the blowout outperformance in May 2014, my portfolio performance in June 2014 was somewhat muted, relatively speaking.

Here is a graph of my portfolio performance:

 

Here is a table of returns:

Returns My Portfolio Kotak Classic SBI Midcap Nifty
Last Month 7% 5% 7% 3%
Last 3 Months 35% 17% 20% 18%
Since Nov, 2013 66% 27% 48% 23%

As you can see in the table above, my portfolio outperformed the Nifty by 4% last month. Over the last 8 months, this outperformance has been a whopping 43%. However, it has been the time for Small Caps and Midcaps. And my porfolio consists largely of such small caps and midcaps. Compared to the SBI Midcap Fund, my porfolio performance is not as phenomenal. In the last month, the performance has been in line.  And the BSE Small Cap Index has actually eclipsed my portfolio, though not by more than 0.5% over 8 months.

What went up? Ajanta Pharma and R.S. Software, both stocks accumulated in the last 3 months. Clariant, another favorite of mine. Muthoot Capital Services, Balkrishna Tyres, Bharat Forge, IRB Infra and Mayur Uniquoters. In short, a bunch of Midcap and Small Cap stocks.

Portfolio Composition at the end of June, 2014

I am trying to maintain the discipline of disclosing my portfolio over the weekend after expiry in every month.

Notable purchases during the month include a significant increase in my holdings in IDFC and Oberoi Realty, and an increase in my holdings in Idea Cellular and an initial position in Tata Global Beverages. I also bought a reasonable amount of Sabero Organics as a special situations play. Amongst small caps, I created small positions in Morganite Crucible and Mazda Engineering. I trimmed my holdings in JP Infra and in Alkyl Amines.

I have too diversified a portfolio. Over a period, it will only became like the Nifty Junior. I am therefore trying to increase the concentration in my portfolio, and for the moment, two stocks, IDFC and Oberoi Realty are in my focus. I intend to increase my holdings further. I will give an investment thesis on both next week.

I am also increasing my exposure to Idea Cellular, though at a slower clip than the above two. The reason is simple, telecom stocks have got back pricing power, and the eminent entry of Reliance Jio, to my mind, is an overblown fear. Reliance has not demonstrated that when it comes to engaging the consumer that it is better than competitors. This is true for its previous telecom foray, as it is true for its retail foray. I have little doubt that they will be a serious player in the telecom space, but existing telecom players are not going to roll over and die. Idea’s balance sheet is the best amongst Bharti, RCom and Idea, and it is executing its plan well. This can be a FCF business of high proportions.

Sabero Organics was bought mainly from the point of view of merger with Coromandel International. The merger should not happen within a month or so, and buying Sabero today means buying Coromandel at a 7% or so discount.

This constitutes 79% of my total portfolio. I am disclosing those stocks which constitute more than 1% of my portfolio. IDFC has gone up from 3.4% to 4.05%, even without any price increase. Oberoi Realty has gone up from 2.4% to 3.4%. I fully intend to have both of these at 10% within the next 2 months.
