Weekly Portfolio Review: 04 September 2010

162% return! Anybody will be tempted with such a recommendation to buy more and more shares of those companies. I have got a couple of recommendations that anticipate more than 100% return in 2-3 years. These recommendations are from reliable and professional equity researchers and I have good faith on them. However these reports and recommendations are based on various assumptions and estimates (not rumours and speculation of course). So things can go wrong. So I decided to have some control and limit on how much exposure I can have based on a single research product. Anyway, I have set limits to avoid concentration on a few companies or sectors. So, I would strongly suggest you to avoid over exposure to few companies or sectors. Diversify into a reasonable number of companies and sectors. Once you have built the base, you can add more of those which are already in your portfolio. You may miss out opportunities, but you can substantially reduce the risk. Some people may rubbish the idea of investing small amount in a company! Many drops make an ocean.

Past week ended with a gain of 1.31% in BSE Sensex and 1.34% NSE Nifty and 2.08% in my portfolio. My year to date gain is 8.30% while that of BSE Sensex is 4.24% and NSE Nifty 5.27%. In my last review, I mentioned it was Suzlon who stole a major chunk of my gain during the year. Afterward in the last two days, Suzlon gained 7.99%! Yes, it was on a rumour that Reliance would buy a stake in Suzlon which has been denied by Reliance later.  In the year largest contributors of gain for me remain Tata Global Beverages, Gujarat Gas and Dabur India.
