25 Small Caps Cherry Picked
12/6/2010 3:02 PM Monday
At DSIJ, we try to bring something new and valuable for our esteemed readers in every new issue. In a similar attempt, based on the theme of ‘Small is Beautiful,’ we had recommended 50 small cap counters to our investors last year at the same time. We had then stated that in this fast changing world, small is becoming a buzzword and has the capacity to turn into something big. At a time when many on the streets ignored the small cap stocks on account of the high risk factor, we had mentioned that, “The world of small cap stocks can be a dangerous minefield for the uninformed speculator but a goldmine for investors willing to do the necessary research to uncover market gems.” We took the initiative and recommended 50 small cap counters to our investors. And if the performance of those recommendations is anything to go by, this is really turning out to be a goldmine for investors. Our 50 handpicked small cap counters have provided robust returns of 61 per cent as compared to a miniscule 13 per cent of the Sensex.
There are some who feel that the performance of our recommendations was just a fluke and we have performed well just because the small cap brigade as a whole has moved up together. The reality is that the BSE Small Cap Index during a similar period has only provided 23.40 per cent returns. This clearly indicates that our performance is backed by solid research. You should also remember that we had asked investors to book profits in many counters in a span of just two months. The point we are trying to make is that the actual returns are in fact higher than what they appear to be. This time, we have come up with the second installment of this hugely successful cover story. Going ahead, we will probably make it a yearly feature. The only difference this year is that based on the request of our investors, who found it difficult to choose among the 50 counters last time, we are recommending only 25 instead of 50 companies. There are numerous small cap counters out there and most appear like they are going to be the next big thing. Will all of them succeed in attaining that level eventually? The answer is probably no. We can tell you from experience that the charms of many of them will fade away within a short span of time.
