Portfolio Objective, Theme and Performance
- JainMatrix Investments launched its Mid and Small Cap portfolio in Feb 2013.
- The objective of the MSCMP is to outperform the Mid and Small Cap indices by large margins.
- It consists of 7 mid & small cap BUY rated firms that are out-performers from identified 3-5 sectors.
- Firms are introduced into the MSCMP with a minimum holding period of 1 year.
Investment Strategy Note
JainMatrix Investments presents the Feb 2015 update of its Mid Cap Model Portfolio.
- It’s been a very good year for the stock markets. Like in a marriage, the honeymoon period is now over for the new central government. It’s time for the delivery on promises. The first budget owned and created by the central govt. kicks in on 28th It will be an important event. The Budget is the Opportunity.
- We at JainMatrix remain confident that this will be another above average year for investors. The interest rates are starting to trend downwards. Inflation is falling. The commodity prices like oil, fuels, metals, agri-commodities, etc. are trending down. The related industries may suffer a correction, but the wider economy will benefit. It will help consumers, local business and investors with costs reducing and budget surpluses. Also, foreign exchange reserves are up; gold controls are being eased and individual outbound investment limits have been raised.
- As per the govt., local defense production will become the heart of the Make in India They have increased the foreign investment limit in the domestic defense industry from 26% to 49%. This makes sense as this is the one sector that the govt. has maximum control over, the Defense-Industrial complex. India has been foolishly importing the majority of its defense equipment, actually preferring, for some perverted reason, foreign suppliers rather than Indian. This is now being reversed. The opportunity is massive, estimated to be $250 billion over the next 10 years, or an average Rs 1,50,000 crores per year. The expectation is that Indian private sector players with manufacturing capabilities will individually, or in partnership with renowned global defense players, win defense contracts. We will expand on this theme in future notes.
- The INR/USD rate is now 62.16, and is now expected to be in the range of 59-63.
Portfolio Theme and Performance
- The investment theme is now – IT and Auto ancillary exports, and cyclicals like banks, financial services and infra. The investor should continue his wealth building process with Mid-Caps.
- We have made some changes to this portfolio, and there are now 7 BUY shares and 1 HOLD.
- Our Mid and Small Cap Portfolio continues to perform well. On average the 7 Buy recommendation shares were up by absolute 155% and annualized 92%. But including the two Holds so far, the portfolio gained by absolute 124% and annualized 73%.
- The CNX Midcap, S&P BSE Midcap and S&P BSE Smallcap were up by 29.5%, 28.2% & 31% annualized in the period. The JM active Mid/Small Cap portfolio outperformed by 61%.
Investors need to continue to invest in these shares to continue their wealth building process.
