Indian stock pick by studying mutual funds portfolio

Indian Stocks pick especially by small retail investors is a tedious work for them. Hence, mostly avoided by them and thus, rely on so-called market pundits for advice every time. However, with little knowledge of the internet and working on excel, any retail investor can pick stocks which may generate a good return. Also, they can time for the proper exit with little or no loss, in case whenever the market goes against them. This is among one of the articles on stocks picking and written mainly for small retail investors.

Indian stocks pick by mutual funds – the basis

Mutual funds buy and sell stocks of Indian companies on regular basis.

Generally, the funds run various schemes which are managed by funds managers. These funds managers are responsible for managing the portfolio of stocks and other assets depending up on the nature of schemes.

They are also responsible to deliver good returns to the small investors whose money they manage through the sale of units of these schemes. Now, not every scheme performs all the time.

Indian stocks pick by mutual funds – the methodology

For the present study different schemes of all the mutual funds was scanned on the basis of historical return. The idea is to select those schemes, which has generated the consistent return over a period of time.

If schemes perform good means that the selected stocks in their portfolio are capable of generating the good return over a period of time. Thus, the hypothesis is that if good schemes pick any stocks for the first time it will have ample potential to move up, as mutual funds do not churn stocks in short duration.

A little over 2300 schemes was found active in the month of May 2016. These were further filtered based on historical returns of over 15%. All the schemes were filtered simultaneously on 2 years, 5 years and since inception time frame. A total 46 schemes fulfilled these scanning criteria of return over 15% on all the three-time frame.

Those schemes were selected which was manages by funds managers who were having over 10 years of experience in managing funds. A total of 12 schemes was filtered out from 46 selected funds. After this, portfolio for the month May 2016 was detailed out for each scheme.

Lists of 794 scrip’s have been detailed out of these 12 schemes. Some of the scrip’s were repeated in nature due to pick up by more than one scheme.
