5 Popular Portfolio Types

Courtesy : Investopedia



Stock investors constantly hear the wisdom of diversification. The concept is to simply not put all of your eggs in one basket, which in turn helps mitigate risk, and generally leads to better performance or return on investment. Diversifying your hard-earned dollars does make sense, but there are different ways of diversifying, and there are different portfolio types. We look at the following portfolio types and suggest how to get started building them: aggressive, defensive, income, speculative and hybrid. It is important to understand that building a portfolio will require research and some effort. Having said that, let's have a peek across our five portfolios to gain a better understanding of each and get you started.

The Aggressive Portfolio
 
An aggressive portfolio or basket of stocks includes those stocks with high risk/high reward proposition. Stocks in the category typically have a high beta, or sensitivity to the overall market. Higher beta stocks experience larger fluctuations relative to the overall market on a consistent basis. If your individual stock has a beta of 2.0, it will typically move twice as much in either direction to the overall market - hence, the high-risk, high-reward description.

Most aggressive stocks (and therefore companies) are in the early stages of growth, and have a unique value proposition. Building an aggressive portfolio requires an investor who is willing to seek out such companies, because most of these names, with a few exceptions, are not going to be common household companies. Look online for companies with earnings growth that is rapidly accelerating, and have not been discovered by Wall Street. The most common sectors to scrutinize would be technology, but many other firms in various sectors that are pursuing an aggressive growth strategy can be considered. As you might have gathered, risk management becomes very important when building and maintaining an aggressive portfolio. Keeping losses to a minimum and taking profit are keys to success in this type of portfolio.

The Defensive Portfolio
 
Defensive stocks do not usually carry a high beta, and usually are fairly isolated from broad market movements. Cyclical stocks, on the other hand, are those that are most sensitive to the underlying economic "business cycle." For example, during recessionary times, companies that make the "basics" tend to do better than those that are focused on fads or luxuries. Despite how bad the economy is, companies that make products essential to everyday life will survive. Think of the essentials in your everyday life, and then find the companies that make these consumer staple products.

The opportunity of buying cyclical stocks is that they offer an extra level of protection against detrimental events. Just listen to the business stations and you will hear portfolios managers talking about "drugs," "defense" and "tobacco." These really are just baskets of stocks that these managers are recommending based upon where the business cycle is and where they think it is going. However, the products and services of these companies are in constant demand. A defensive portfolio is prudent for most investors. A lot of these companies offer a dividend as well which helps minimize downside capital losses.

The Income Portfolio
An income portfolio focuses on making money through dividends or other types of distributions to stakeholders. These companies are somewhat like the safe defensive stocks but should offer higher yields. An income portfolio should generate positive cash flow. Real estate investment trusts (REITs) and master limited partnerships (MLP) are excellent sources of income producing investments. These companies return a great majority of their profits back to shareholders in exchange for favorable tax status. REITs are an easy way to invest in real estate without the hassles of owning real property. Keep in mind, however, that these stocks are also subject to the economic climate. REITs are groups of stocks that take a beating during an economic downturn, as building and buying activity dries up.

An income portfolio is a nice complement to most people's paycheck or other retirement income. Investors should be on the lookout for stocks that have fallen out of favor and have still maintained a high dividend policy. These are the companies that can not only supplement income but also provide capital gains. Utilities and other slow growth industries are an ideal place to start your search.


The Speculative Portfolio
 
A speculative portfolio is the closest to a pure gamble. A speculative portfolio presents more risk than any others discussed here. Finance gurus suggest that a maximum of 10% of one's investable assets be used to fund a speculative portfolio. Speculative "plays" could be initial public offerings (IPOs) or stocks that are rumored to be takeover targets. Technology or health care firms that are in the process of researching a breakthrough product, or a junior oil company which is about to release its initial production results, would also fall into this category.

Another classic speculative play is to make an investment decision based upon a rumor that the company is subject to a takeover. One could argue that the widespread popularity of leveraged ETFs in today's markets represent speculation. Again, these types of investments are alluring: picking the right one could lead to huge profits in a short amount of time. Speculation may be the one portfolio that, if done correctly, requires the most homework. Speculative stocks are typically trades, and not your classic "buy and hold" investment.

The Hybrid Portfolio
 
Building a hybrid type of portfolio means venturing into other investments, such as bonds, commodities, real estate and even art. Basically, there is a lot of flexibility in the hybrid portfolio approach. Traditionally, this type of portfolio would contain blue chip stocks and some high grade government or corporate bonds. REITs and MLPs may also be an investable theme for the balanced portfolio. A common fixed income investment strategy approach advocates buying bonds with various maturity dates, and is essentially a diversification approach within the bond asset class itself. Basically, a hybrid portfolio would include a mix of stocks and bonds in a relatively fixed allocation proportions. This type of approach offers diversification benefits across multiple asset classes as equities and fixed income securities tend to have a negative correlation with one another.

The Bottom Line
At the end of the day, investors should consider all of these portfolios and decide on the right allocation across all five. Here, we have laid the foundation by defining five of the more common types of portfolios. Building an investment portfolio does require more effort than a passive, index investing approach. By going it alone, you will be required to monitor your portfolio(s) and re-balance more frequently, thus racking up commission fees. Too much or too little exposure to any portfolio type introduces additional risks. Despite the extra required effort, defining and building a portfolio will increase your investing confidence, and give you control over your finances.

    1. There is nothing wrong with the management or something like that but certain points are even beyond the control of management and may take some time to adjust with it . Overall the Japanese economy is going through some tough time which is the major market of the company . While going through the export data available in public domain , I feel there may be some impact .On the other side there was an unexpected rise in raw material cost and only now it is coming down.These are the major changes happened in past few months and that's why I suggested to take a cautious approach for short to medium term investors. One should note the point that these are cyclical in nature and situation may turn positive in longer term.I took this opportunity to explain my rationale only because of allegations that my call is meant for creating panic and collect shares at lower cost for myself . One more point is that I can't say with 100 % confidence that the data available in Zauba is accurate and hence requesting to take own analysis and calculations to take a final call.

  29. VP this was least expected from you. Stop calling yourself a long term investor if you cant keep patience with your own researched multibaggers.My average buy price was 143 because you kept on shouting even at higher price that it is still cheap and now after 20 months I sold all at 105. Huge loss because my mistake was that I used to follow u with faith. You have stopped giving fresh calls from last one year so now this has become a new way to earn money for you. Give fake sell calls enter yourself and then after a month u will say SKM has recovered and is back on track then fools like us will buy blindly and you will make a smart and profitable exit at higher levels. Carry on. God bless

      The problem is that people like the one who commented above have absolutely no capability to understand the nuances of Business and hence the stock market.. Ideally these are complete idiots who should not be investing in the business or the equity market. Now when they see that there is some virtual losses in their portfolio, they want to blame somebody for their foolishness. That is when they find people like VP SIR who has been a very valuable source of business knowledge to people like me. I have been in the market for the last 15 years and I can say that every bit of information that VP SIR has given to us is just invaluable. I would like to thank him for all his selfless advice and I'm sure that there will be many more who will salute him for the knowledge that he has imparted. Thank You VP sir. Hats off to you and your knowledge. I really appreciate that. As far as these mindless, idiotic fools are concerned..Best advice..Ignore them..They are fit to be holding their money under their bed and worth only that because the problem is their brains do not grow and function just like their money. Ignore Ignore them.:):)

    2. I don't understand how can one blame others for their losses when it was you who bought and sold the shares without any pressure whatsoever within your sanity and with your own money. VP is advising best to his ability and you have an option to take it or leave it. You want to pursue it do your own research and take decision. If it was easy making money in market everyone would've been a billionaire. You should put ur money in FDs if you can't take calculated risk.

  30. VP IT'S A PITTY YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO BUY SKM AT LOWER PRICE EVEN AFTER GIVING A SELL CALL. THIS SHOWS PEOPLE HAVE LOST TRUST IN YOU AND THEY ARE STILL HOLDING IT TIGHT EVEN AFTER YOUR BAD INTENTIONAL SELL CALL THEY ARE NOT AFRAID. GET A LIFE BRO STOP CHEATING INNOCENT INVESTORS BY SHOWING 500% CONFIDENCE AT HIGHER LEVELS AND SELL CALLS AT LOWER LEVELS. YOU HAVE BEATEN THE WORST ARVIND BAJAJ ASWELL.

  31. Received lot of comments and mails on this subject .The above are only samples and rest not even qualify to publish in a public forum due to lower standard of language used in it.Sorry to say that , even if you call me a liar,bastard ..etc as mentioned in many of mails, I cant change my stand ( taking decisions based on company fundamentals). So any stock may turn as a buy call at 100 or 1000 % above a previous sell price and vice versa If I believe there is reasons to do so and better opportunity may emerge in future. One more thing I would like to clear that for the last 6 years I never tried to intentionally cheat my readers by playing any wrong doing as mentioned in above message and at the same time accepting the fact that as a human being some of my decisions and calculations went wrong in the past, but it was not intentional or part of effort to cheat any of my readers .

    Anyway once again thanks to all for being with me for the past six years and wishing all the best to my readers in your future journey to create wealth from stock market.

They have their rights to voice their opinion. But please don't waste your time and energy responding to them. We should not bow down to their level. I read something, never argue with fools, they will take you to their level and beat you with their experience....:-)....You are a terrific guy.

      I have been your blog reader for last 3 years. I want to say that I made more then 100% returns following your recommendations and advice.

      Because of your advice, recommendations and inputs to everyone , i say following your blog has been life changing event in my life apart from monetary gain, I have gained lot of confidence to look at everything I do with a perspective.

      What differentiates Boys from men is , how one is able to handle different up and down situations. Looks like some have not been able to transition from Boys to men.

      I can go on and on.. it can go on pages...To conclude you are a great human being ..and India will be great place to live because of people like you who work for greater good .

      Thank you for all the inputs and advice.. Wishing you and your family good health and prosperity.

    5. VP Sir, I can understand your pain. This is human, so unthankful that it needs everything free and even then it forgets all the good so soon and start criticizing others for its own failures. Those who do not know even the basics of stock market functioning start calling themselves investors. They are all fair weather friends only. These guys don't deserve any explanation from you. In fact, I would say nobody deserves anything free in this world.

    6. Dear VP,
      We understand your stand and appreciate. It is quite impossible for anyone to predict future as environment changes drastically/quickly.First of all all these shouting individual should understand the knowledge/experience gained by following a blog like this apart from financial gain/loss. This add lot of value when anybody analyse a stock recommended by an expert.

      One question on SKM@150 range(any stock in Similar situation)is when a company is trading at 10-12PE and its capacity utilization is 100%, what growth is expected more which justifies buying at a higher price. Capacity expansion need more fund anyway which may/maynot be there and company might need to go for fund racing. Is return on capital employed a key factor here.

  35. stock market and its shares are dynamic in nature. good company can become bad and bad company can become good. Like in family if bread earner dies then family is destined to face bad times and vise versa. u cant blame one person for the stock price. Its dynamic in nature. Nothing is guaranteed. Stock market is not a place for people who fall in love with the script. conditions can change anytime. Do not abuse some one who is having better understanding of stock market fundamentals , their mgmt , and business model . what lies in future no body can know certainly . its an projection and probability only.

  36. Hi VP, First of all thanks for ur effort to guide investors like us.

    Because of u only, i learnt so many things in stock market.But, i am really confused when u asked to book profit in SKM. U only asked to wait & stay invested in a good company to get high returns.but this time, u asked to book profit before their quarterly result is little unfair as a longterm investors.SKM Last year Net profit was 25.19cr & this year, it is already at 30.98cr. Even if this qtr is going to be poor, it may get netprofit around Rs.23 to 25 cr.
    Company may turn positive & news like BSE listing, Expansion can happen in 2016-17.
    All of the sudden, Great person like u(Longterm Investor) asking to book profit is really confusing & unfair to company like SKM. I am sure u know that most of the investors bought this stock between 100 to 120 only as it was in UC from 60 to 100.Some investors bought at 140 to 150 also.

    Again i am saying, i got to know good companies like SKM,Pioneer,Il&FS,Mic,V2retail is because of u. Pls give any reason for short term exit from SKM & i know u want everyone to be a long-term investor in stock market.

  45. You have been a guiding force and a tutor to several retail investors who have low knowledge of fundamentals and business cycles. Don't stop your advices just bcos of some foolish messages by morons who don't have patience. You not just suggest stocks but also educate investors about underlying basics of a value pick.

  48. Sir,
    Please don't leave us because of few fools.we are still nothing without your guidance, in spite of your great effort to enlighten us for last few years.
    There are many like me who take your views in right spirit.Please be with us sir .Even though you have not recommended any stock for last few months,even then only few words of yours enthuse us with confidence to stand tall in the market.

  49. VP Sir,
    Don't mind the negative comments. Some people always like this, they are getting free advice and they want the stock to be a multi bagger over night. We believe in you and am sincerely thanking you for your selfless effort.

    Thanks

  50. You have been a great mentor, every class will have good and bad students a teacher should not stop teaching by seeing bad students. Please continue with selfless service. I entered SKM in early stages but accumulated more at higher levels so ended up in booking loss. I am considering this as a fee for my learning. You saved us from further loss. If the Japan economy is not well either SKM or VP sir cannot do anything. People has to realize it ....Thanks Sir

  51. Sir please we understand your pain .. These words are of foolish selfish people who have no integrity. Even I have lost some and gained some. You have helped us so much and there are times your predictions have gone wrong but that is part and parcel of the game. I am pleading you on behalf of other people like me who treat you like god. Please dont leave us alone. Whenever i worry about my daughters future I think about you. I tell myself VP will help me to make sure I save enough for her. Please continue guiding us and be our light in the dark tunnel. God bless you and your family

  53. You will always ...always.... Find people that are not happy with THEIR decision to invest in a call or suggestion made by you....at no point should you blame yourself for that. There are a lot of people following you ... That have made money too ...including myself.... So just take what these sour grapes write.. with a pinch of salt and keep your faith in the people that know you're a good guy, just trying to share your thoughts on good opportunities to invest in the market.

  55. Dear VP,
    I am extremely sorry to see the sample of abuses hurled by idiots. It is true we can not feel the anguish you must have been suffering through but rest assured that there are equal number of people who cherished your knowledge sharing. We were benefitted in our understanding of investing in stock. I fully support you in your decision if you are disenchanted with carrying out your blog. I am writing this only to tell you that there are people who also stand by you. Thanks a lot for all the wisdom imparted to us.

    Regards.

    we know u r matured enough to ignore all this one .

  58. VP sir is doing all the hard work and has managed to spoon feed the readers so far .Poor man.. I think his exit call is for short term and medium term investors.
    Once you are convinced about the growth story ,these declines in SKM Egg stock's price should be taken as excellent buying opportunities for long term investors .

    In every society, there will be some people who behave arrogant and selfish without understanding good intention of others like you. Your guidance to retail investors is the best one and kindly continue the same. Please ignore those idiotic people.

  62. I always had faith on you and that would remain forever. We get to know people during tough times and my view was always positive for you. My view won't change for you just becoz of SKM call. I know you were always honest and you will always be. People forget very easily the amount of profit they got in the past. You are the best and you will always be. We will always be with you in good and bad times.

  71. VP Sir, plz don't get bothered by 10-15 people who have turned against you. I am sure there are thousands of people who follow u and have conviction in you.

    I have been investing in stock markets since more than 15 years and have still not made a lot of money. I got to know about your blog only since Dec 2014 and have been very happy to follow you.

    Plz don't quit because of few handful of people who have booked some losses in this bad market conditions.

    My portfolio was +8l in Dec which turned -4l in Jan Feb but I have not lost hope because this is high risk high reward place to be in.

    Plz don't quit SIR..

  73. Dear Respected Sir,

    There are another set of investors too who beleive that investments are subject to market risks. And you never guaranteed any returns from markets. You always opined to take own decisions after research, so then how can you be held responsible for the losses. This is also stated clearly in the blog's disclaimer. The people who are shouting are hopeless. Either they shouldnt follow you or if they follow you they shouldnt beleive you, it cannot so happen that they follow you & also dont beleive you.
    I think you deserve a lot lot lot lot of credit for your selfless law abidig service.
    One thing to note is that though the standard of language employed by agitators is unconstitutional, you have always maintained your dignity and well wished them which proves the virtues inbibed in you.
    Whether you continue to serve us through the blog or not shall be your personal call, but just wanted to remind you humbly that still there are many of your followers(incl. those who lost their money in longer run) who want to learn from you.

  74. Though I have never purchased a single stock based on recommendation given by this forum or any other forum but I track this forum monthly once atleast to check if any new idea/stock discuss here. Today I am sad to read last 2-3 blogs. You can't blame anyone for your failure. It's your decision to invest in any particular stock. I request some of you please stop this.

    Hello VP sir,
    I don't see your comments after you said thank you for all, don't bring emotional feeling into this, as a senior and leader for your readers, please have some pations and tolerance . All good leader in any vertical gone through this phase, but they didn't left what they did. Take some time , things will pass and come back and continue your journey. This is what your journey is , this is where your interest is , and so many indirect dependents on you. I daily check 3 times a day for your comment. You are a good experience analyst , so don't waste that, share with poor people . Time will teach us who is what, people will realize what mistake they made. All are human beings we tend to make mistakes.

  79. Sir,
    You don't have to bother about these kind of people...remember, it is the blade of grass that stands tall, that gets cut. You have shown the way to hundreds of genuine investors, taught us and nutured our own capacities. There will always be the nay sayers...forget them. I for one, and I'm sure that there are 1000s like me have benefitted from your calls and teachings. Thank you and God bless.

  80. Dear VP
    Gain and loss are part of this game. Thoose who enters into this game must be prepared to take this risk.
    Personally I gained much from your articles. All your postings were rich sources , both in terms of money and knowledge.
    I request you not to be upset with comments comming out from thoose who just enetered into the market with out doing their own analysis and eventuallu suffered losses

    Please continue your efforts to educate people. People like me are despirately lookibg towards you

  82. VP Sir,
    Its really disheartening to see these kinds of messages. But i would still request you to continue with your blog. You have helped people so far by making them more knowledgeable in stock market and out of those many followers, there are few who always expect everything that you say should become multibagger is not possible....pleas dont give too much importance to these comments sir...

    Thanks

  83. VP Sir
    You are perfectly true. I am wealthy now by following your tips. If anyone not liking this, let them move away from the group. Please keep posting your tips

  84. Well looks like this is exactly the reason Mr VP would want to stop giving any suggestions for stocks. Investors should remember that after all it is YOU who is investing your hard earned money. If you choose to have blind faith without your own research YOU will be disillusioned by the market reality.
    Is anyone agreeing to split profits with VP because he/she benefited from his advice? If you can't do that then stop expecting money back guarantees!

  85. Dear VP sir there are 26 stocks that I bought in last 4 years following your blog, 14 I am still holding 8 I sold in big profits and 4 I sold in little bit loss (Including SKM). Your blog changed my life I Lost my job in 2011 and started investing in stock market, today after 5 years I am financially very stable and 100% credit goes to your blog. Sir it's a kind request put a break on discussions regarding SKM there are thousands of other stock ideas available with you why to let people bother you and put a break on your selfless service. Please start posting your new ideas sir and simply delete the comments page from this blog so that no ANONYMOUS person can post. Keep comments feature only on your Facebook so that atleast only registered members can comment. Regards Monika
