One of the constituents SHILPI is hitting continuous down circuits and despite the sell signal, Mi50 is yet to be able to exit this. This is a classic example of the constraints that we will sometime run into. Already that position has lost 46%. However given the good diversification, the strategy is virtually unharmed. We could get a few of these every year i believe.
The month of Apr 2017, also saw 4 stocks complete 12 months holding and are going strong. The stocks and % gain are :
Barring the odd SHILPI episode, it has been a good month. There are not many triggers on the horizon and fund flow seems to be good. The more margin we can build now will help us limit capital loss when the fall comes. And that is a sure thing every few seasons.
Have a great month!
