Lower cap segments had a relatively better outing while Nifty stayed flat this week. Talking point of the week was FED hiking the interest rate to 5.5% taking the cumulative rate hike in this cycle to 5.25% but Indian markets have truly been on top making new peaks. RSI dropped to 60 odd levels which is a good occurrence during all time high markets. We may see some resistance around 19990 crossing which we can prepare ourselves for a yet another good move beyond the coveted 20k mark.
Nifty Next 50 was superb this week clocking 2.2% followed by consistent performers Smallcaps and Mid-small 400 at 1.1% & 1.3% respectively. Nifty Jnr picking up after a difficult period earlier this year augurs well for all. Smallcaps continue to lead FY 24 charts clocking a whopping 27%
The sectoral charts witnessed a mixed bag this week. REALTY, PHARMA, METALS, ENERGY & COMMODITIES did well to clock above 2% while the rest of the pack stayed neutral to negative. REALTY has been solid clocking a massive 45.3% this FY with AUTO and PHARMA occupying the next two spots returning 26% & 24% respectively. IT remains the weakest at 2% in FY 24.
WeekendInvesting strategies had a good outing this week with the majority of the strategies doing better than their respective benchmarks. Mi MT Allcap & Mi NNF 10 had good outings this week with returns of around 2.5% while Mi 35 & Mi India Top 10 remained dull. FY 24 has been off to a remarkable start with Mi 20 returning 43% followed by Mi 50 at 38%. We are extremely happy and are looking forward to the times ahead.

We started a new podcast series centered around Alok’s life journey, lessons, failures, success and mindset that led to the creation of WeekendInvesting. We hope these conversations may motivate others in their journeys towards financial freedom.
A 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 weekendinvesting.smallcase.com 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.

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?
