    1. Stocks which fall due to the overall negative sentiments in market without any company specific reason is always a buy for me.But considering the severe sell off going on in mid-small cap ,instead of buying in bulk one may use SIP mode to accumulate good stocks in this carnage.Running away when market is down and coming back at the top is not a good idea.

  2. Stop man giving recommendations none of your picks are working. For example see ion exchange, one of the worst investment pick till now.

    1. You just ignore the recommendations man, and if possible give examples for some mid /small caps which gave very good return in your portfolio in last six months and also give some good stock ideas in current market .I have freedom to recommend and you have freedom to ignore my recommendations.I don't think ION exchange is going to close their business tomorrow and market is going to end by next week.

    2. if none of the reco is working then why you are coming here. Look alternative....
      its human mendality, if we r in profit.. then we wont wish him for the stock pick where as in loss... always shouting ..... Instead of showing fingers to someone, first show the fingers to your face.

    5. Even if you bought it at yearly high Ion hasn't fallen as much as stocks like Opto. Valuepick's fundamental analysis has immensely helped the small/midcap investing community. Can Mr. Anonymous point out to another blogger from whom he has benefited more? All that I would request Valuepick to do is to review his stock picks now that the market has corrected so much.

      Thanks,

  5. Dear VP,
    Panacea went very well through WHO audit without any major observation ( 483). I am very positive on this company , since any further orderflow of vaccines from WHO will take the stock to new high.You can add any updated comments .

    1. Dear SK

      As far as my understanding a major portion of contingent liability of Mangalam Cement is related with the royalty of limestone.

  6. abbot is worth a look in uncertain times...im also looking at merck,sanofi,wyeth and other mnc listed companies..they look decent as their mkt cap are less than 5000 cr still....some of them deserve a 10 b dollar mkt cap looking at india opportunity size and 120 billion people....their sales to mkt cap ratio also looks cheap....thety all are ripe for re-rating soon...

    1. This is not a bad stock but the industry is not in limelight now.These times are good for accumulation but one should show enough patience to get benefit.In practice ,many people buy shares saying ' We are ready to HOLD it for 3 year or 5 year ' but when the stock languish due to over all negative sentiments in market for 3 months instead of three years they will start cursing .So whether a stock is good or one can make money on it mainly depends on one's own nature even the fundamentals of company is intact.

  9. dear vp,
    is it the correct time to accumulate some beaten down stock eveready ind jain irrigation etc

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Depends on the reason for price erosion

      If it is only because of overall negative sentiment of market or due to temporary downtrend in the over all industry - such occasions are good to accumulate more.We should analyse whether the management is capable to weather the storm and survive till the revival happens .

      Personally I like Jain irrigation and believe they will come back in another one year.

    1. Yes,but it is part of market and we have seen such situations many times in the past 25 years.Ultimately one truth remains - If a company continue its business growth it will always reward share holders.

    2. Agreed VP sir, see an example of La Opala - hiked 40% in just 2 days in current market phase only because of thier business growth n fundamentals.
