Benchmark Indices & Sectoral Performance

After weeks of decline, we finally witnessed a positive movement in the market, particularly on Friday, when the Nifty showed a significant upward trend. However, it’s important to note that the market is still not completely out of the woods. Although it has moved away from the danger zone around the 19,300 mark, further consolidation may be expected before a sustained upward trend.

Sectoral Performance

In terms of sector performance, real estate has emerged as a clear winner, with a significant 5.8% increase. The sector has been showing strong growth, indicating a real estate upcycle. Historically, real estate cycles tend to be long-lasting, lasting several years with intermittent down cycles. Therefore, this sector presents promising opportunities for investors.

Metals have also bounced back, driven by the Chinese focus on boosting their economy. With a 5% increase, the sector has already recorded a remarkable 24% growth in the current financial year. This renewed momentum in metals opens up potential investment prospects.

In addition, the auto sector has displayed positive growth, with Maruti leading the pack with a 3.7% increase this week. The sector has experienced a substantial 30% growth this financial year, indicating robust performance. Public Sector Enterprises (PSEs), including companies like BHEL, HAL, and Concor, have also witnessed a significant surge, with a 3.3% increase this week and 25% growth throughout the financial year. Similarly, commodities have shown minor gains.

However, defensive sectors, such as Pharma and FMCG, have lagged due to reduced market exposure to high-risk investments. When market rotation occurs from defensive to aggressive sectors, these defensive stocks often experience temporary setbacks. Nevertheless, Pharma has achieved an impressive 24.9% growth this financial year, positioning it among the top performers.

SHORT COURSE to Help you Stay Calm in All Market Conditions

Usually, quick – sharp corrections amidst a Bull Run creates ambiguity in the minds of lots of new investors. The most important question we often get asked is whether markets will crash from here. Should we exit? and a few other questions like these. We have made several videos to help you clarify many such questions and help you have the RIGHT MINDSET for a rewarding journey in investing.

We have put together a few of our previous Daily Bytes which we think might be relevant for times like these. Do have a look and send us your thoughts, questions or comments if any.

The smallcase products are all LONG ONLY products that invest in various subsegments of the markets but have the momentum theme underlying in all of them. The strategies will pick strong outperforming stocks and remove weak ones once a week (except Mi NNF10, Mi EverGreen & Mi India Top 10 which is monthly rebalanced)

These are all long-term strategies that will create enormous wealth in each upswing and then maybe give some back in the downswing and repeat this process again and again achieving the compounding effect. With patience and grit to follow strategy over ups and downs over the last nearly five years, it has been shown that much superior CAGR returns are possible than the benchmarks.

We give advance notice here on the upcoming changes in your smallcase for Monday. This advance notice can be used to ignore Monday’s update if there is no change. If there is a change indicated you can use the smallcase app or log in to to see the rebalance. A backup email is sent by mid-day Monday if you have not rebalanced by then and yet another one a day later.

Note: We are not including LIQUIDBEES as an ADD or an EXIT count.

The performance of all strategies across various timeframes are listed below.

Introducing M Profit

STAIRS Revamped Models

STAIRS is a LONG / SHORT derivative strategy that is designed to offer an uncorrelated diversification option to your equity portfolio. STAIRS will do well when there are up trends & also when there are down trends while giving up some of the gains when markets remain rangebound/volatile.

You may go through our latest weekly report for more details.

All STAIRS models go in line with our fundamental philosophy of making the most and compounding aggressively when markets give us trends and go very defensive as trends fizzle out and enter a rangebound territory, thus providing robust capital & profit protection.

Effectively – STAIRS is a complete trading system (Futures & Options) that covers each of the following decisions required for a successful trading outcome:

• Markets – What to buy or sell?

• Position Sizing – How much to buy or sell?

• Entries – When to buy or sell?

• Stops – When to get out of a losing position?

• Exits – When to get out of a winning position?

That’s it for this week. See you in the next week’s edition !
