If you are one of them, then this article is dedicated to you my friend.

How often we wish to have a magical formula which can be used to find next multibagger. Well, you are in luck as legendary investor Joel Greenblatt has a magic formula for multibagger returns. This formula was backtested on S&P 500 and guess what, it gave an average yearly return of 30% and beat S&P 500 96% of the times. This formula was developed for US stock market and keeping in mind US accounting pratices & taxation laws at that point in time. While many mutual fund houses & researchers use this magic formula to filter stocks from Indian stock market, they seldom publish these results openly in public forums.
At AI Post, we are committed to bring best of investment knowledge to our Ace readers free of cost. No need to pay for training institutes 🙂 In this article, we apply Joel Greenblatt’s magic formula on Indian small cap stocks to see which stocks are worthy of this filter at current market prices.

In tennis, the word “unforced error” is described as a missed shot that is entirely a result of the player’s own blunder and has nothing to do with opposition’s skill.

This correction has also opened up many exciting opportunities. This is the time when ace investor will buy promising smallcap stocks to enjoy multibagger returns in 2022-23.

We all know that inflation is the biggest enemy which we face in our financial life. Interstingly, inflation can be different for different sectors. For example in telecom, instead of inflation, it is deflation as call rates keeps on dropping. For groceries, it is in the range of 6-8% for last 20 years. Do you know the worst of them? It is not one but two. It is Medical Inflation (14% annual) & Education Inflation (10% annual). In some ways, they are related as well (we will explain it later). The problem is that no one can escape medical inflation as our human bodies are bound to grow old and catch diseases. The question is not “if” it will happen but “when” it will happen. You are ace reader of AI Post, you should be prepared and not caught unaware.
In this article, we will discuss trends in medical inflation, role of private insurers and medical colleges, and how badly it can impact us in future. Of course we have a solution as well and it is not just buying insurance. We are stock advisor and not insurance advisor, but we continue to encourage our readers for their overall well-being even if it is not linked to our core business activity.

To 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. There are no right or wrong answers and researchers are divided between 20 stocks to 200 stocks. We at AI, believe that it entirely depends upon your investment style & preference but even then, there are certain rules to follow. Let’s find out in detail.

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.

The battle between central banks and cryptocurrencies has begun. China recently banned Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) from introducing new cryptocurrency tokens in China market. There are also indications that China plans to ban cryptocurrency exchanges. In contrast, other central banks & governments (including RBI) are taking a different line. In this article, we will try to make sense of these moves and how it impacts cryptocurrencies.
Averaging up a stock is an excellent strategy for gaining greater returns (in monetary sense) on already performing stocks. After all, if you own a stock which has gone up 50%, there is a temptation to invest more if future looks promising. While this line of thinking is perfectly fine but its execution has to be carefully planned. If this is not planned carefully, it takes just one lower circuit to put you back in loss. In this article, we will give an example with a real stock (Can Fin Homes) and also we will advise the best possible strategy to average up carefully.
During 1990s, stock market was considered as a rich man’s investment option & common man was staying out of whimsical world of “share bazaar”. It was often believed that share investment is similar to gamble & good people should stay away from it. Scams like Harshad Mehta & UTI 64 only consolidated that belief. However, things have changed since last decade & domestic participation has gathered pace in last 3 years. However, the question remains if it will continue in future & how much it can impact Nifty in coming years? Let’s try to find out.

Everyone invest in small cap stocks for getting multibagger returns. Interestingly, many stocks achieve great returns in due course of time but alas we sell them too early. We can have the best of research process backing us but at the end, it all boils down to how much actual profit we are making. The question remains unknown to most investors as in how much time shall one wait before booking complete profit. In this article, we will try to analyse a recent multibagger stock’s journey ‘Avanti Feeds’ and understand why it is tough to achieve multibagger returns & how to overcome them.
There has been flash flood of money into the equities in last couple of years and this snowball is becoming bigger & bigger as it rolls down the hill. Falling interest rates have only pushed normal person to suddenly discover his risk appetite and start pouring money from bank deposit to stock market. While domestic participation is the best thing that can happen to any country’s stock market but are these new joiners well prepared before taking a plunge into the risky world of equities? The side effects of neglecting the risks associated with equities are huge. Let’s try to find out what all should be covered using Maslow’s theory as a parallel.
Sensex & Nifty50 are creating new highs every week & currently exploring uncharted territory. An usual question that often comes to us from investors is how to invest in such a high market?

In this article, we will try to find a middle path which can be followed irrespective of market conditions. We recommend same approach while investing with any stock advisory service like Tiny CAPS as well.
