2017 has been a great year for equities, BSE Sensex has given around 26% returns so far. Year was abuzz with lot of activities, investors had a fair share of happiness and heartburn. FIIs pumped in money earlier in the year then pulled out later around September. Domestic inflows remained strong and continues to be strong as a rock. Many investors must have made good profit during the year but are they satisfied? Not many, since there is always a neighbor or colleague who apparently made more money than you. As this year comes to an end, it is a good time to retrospect & ask yourself, what type of investor are you? The one who loves hitting boundaries like Yusuf Pathan or the one who runs hard like Virat Kohli. Many Indians love cricket and no better way to learn investment lessons other than cricket. No one was born as a successful investor they improved with time. In this article, we will share our thoughts on making of a successful investor using cricket as analogy. You can decide whether you invest like Yusuf or Virat.

Investors go through the cycle of buying a stock then holding on to it and finally selling the stock. Each of these stages are full of behavioral pitfalls which can significantly impact your returns. You can have the best investment processes or advisers but these behavioral biases have to be dealt by yourself.

This is the single biggest differentiating factor why only a few people realize multibagger returns. In this article, we will discuss some prevalent behavioral biases so that you can refine your own investment behavior.

Diwali Wish retouched

Diwali is great festival which brings people from different religions & boundaries to celebrate together. Annually, families get together & spend quality time with each other.

For investors, Diwali also means a barrage of new stock recommendations from paid & unpaid sources. This often confuses investors as it tends to spoil your portfolio composition if you invest in lot of new stocks.

new lot.pngTo achieve high returns from a well diversified portfolio, shall I invest in lot of stocks to find some multibaggers or shall I restrict to fewer stocks. We are sure this question must have come to your mind when you started investment in equities. In the famous report published by J. Evans and S.H. Archer in 1968, they advised to have 20 to 30 stocks. While a recent study released in 2014 by Vitali Alexeev and Francis Tapon, advises 90 to 110 stocks.

With the surge in return from equities, there is a barrage of new investors who have abandoned real estate or other forms of investment and diverted their money into equities. Most of these investors are first timers and they believe that free hot tips from what’sapp or other informal sources can make them wealthy. Alarmingly, most of them are investing big in “Unknown” small cap stocks by relying on these informal sources. Some have made profit and some have made loss, but the relentless rally in small cap means no one has lost hope. Last year around this time, a friend of mine asked my opinion about a hot tip stock “High Ground Enterprises”  which was hitting upper circuit every now & then.
