The Good Bad and Ugly Weekly Review 21 May 2021

Markets round-up

The markets opened very strong vs previous week and the shorts from last week got caught at open … Then the market become sluggish in the mid week causing a flush to fill the gap and then again sprang up on the last day.  The FIIs have been largely selling and many are expressing surprise that the India Market is where it is.   The  global cues have remained dovish with yield softening and FED not taking any punches at the growing inflation yet. It seems there is more to this leg up but just like since Feb it has remained extremely choppy and non trending.

WeekendInvesting Smallcases

The Weekendinvesting Smallcases have had a tremendous start to the year and the last 5 years and 7 weeks have been a great testimonial to the strategies. The Amazing start to FY22 is another gem in the path to great results.

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 NNF10 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 repeating 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.
FY21 has been phenomenal and I will let the numbers speak for themselves. Consolidated FY21 report 

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

This week also most strategies remined buoyant and already are Mi25 is in the lead with a 30% GAIN already…!

All details on the smallcase products is available at or you may write to us at anytime

WeekendInvesting LIVE products

The LIVE products are a more suitable for large portfolios and those who have broker accounts that are not synced with the smallcase platform. Also the user here churns his portfolio at Fri 3 PM along with the model and there is no slip between the model the actual experience. The back end task of manual execution and record keeping of course is an additional chore.  We recommend going for the LIVE products for large portfolios as market order driven system of the smallcase platform is suited for smaller portfolios mostly.  Mi25 Mi30 and Mi50 are offered as LIVE products

 All details on the LIVE products is available at The weekly changes are the same as shown earlier and have been communicated to the users in LIVE markets today.

How to pick the right WeekendInvesting strategy

Please watch this video for more details

The selection of the smallcase/ LIVE strategy can be done based on
a. Sub Segment of the market : Mi25 for smallcap, Mi_All_cap for all round diversification OR LTCNX 200 for large caps only
b. Activity specific smallcase like Mi ST ATH which chases all time high stocks
c. Or more passive strategies like NNF10 and NG5050 which are monthly rebalanced ones best to replace index investing with or for asset allocation.
d. More diversified smallcases like Mi30 and Mi50 that suit portfolio size of 10L-25L 

We have grouped strategies to their relevant benchmarks and presented the performance below:
