This section of www.drvijaymalik.com contained details of my stocks portfolio as a part of public disclosure of conflict of interest in expressing my views about different stocks. Until July 29, 2016, the portfolio details were provided at www.drvijaymalik.com only for the purpose of disclosure.
However, over time, I have received a lot of requests from multiple investors asking further details about the portfolio like:
- What are the stocks that I am buying in the portfolio at current levels?
- Which of the stocks in the portfolio still offer long term appreciation potential at current prices?
- What is the proportion of each stock in the portfolio?
- What is the average cost of different stocks in my portfolio?
- Since when I have been holding different stocks in my portfolio?
Until now, I have stayed away from answering these questions while highlighting that the portfolio details have been shared only as for disclosure purpose and were not there to serve as an indirect stock recommendation service.
However, with continued requests from readers, I have now decided to make available the elaborate details about my portfolio and the latest transactions as a premium service.
My stock portfolio has its origins in August 2011, when I invested my initial savings from my first job after MBA (2009-11). I have been able to invest in some of the fundamentally good stocks at the initial stage of their growth phase, which were later on discovered by research/brokerage houses and witnessed investments from institutional investors.
The recognition of stocks by key market players have helped to generate significant gains for the portfolio as the underlying stocks got rerated and increased in value. A few such examples are: Ambika Cotton Mills Limited, Vinati Organics Limited, Mayur Uniquoters Limited etc.
I started investing in Ambika Cotton Mills Limited in September 2014, when it was trading at very low valuation levels. The stock was later on identified by the well-known value investor Prof. Sanjay Bakshi, who invested in it through his fund “ValueQuest India Moat Fund Ltd” in March 2015.
Similarly, other stocks like Vinati Organics Limited and Mayur Uniquoters witnessed increased FII buying and thereby generated good returns by increase in share price. The increased FII buying led to the P/E ratio of Mayur Uniquoters increasing from 6.6 to above 30 and P/E ratio of Vinati Organics increasing from 7.7 to above 20. This increase in valuations led to significant increase in the contribution of these stocks in the portfolio returns.
