When you are faced with a crisis or moments of uncertainty in your life, how do you cope?

In my family, my mother finds solace in prayer and temple visits.

My grandmother turns to astrology. Predictions of a better future give her comfort.

Some of us look at role models and take inspiration from their personal experiences. Stories of overcoming challenges give us hope.

A Special Report for Small Cap Investors – 'Rebound Riches'

Our exclusive small cap investment MEGA Event held on 14 October was a huge success which more than 6000+ people attended.

In that Event, we released our special report, Rebound Riches: 3 Stocks Set to Become India's Next Mega-Stocks', in which we reveal you the 3 stocks that you could consider investing in before the market rebounds.

Of course, each and every individual has his or her own way of dealing with uncertain times.

And that brings me to the Indian stock market. There is a lot of uncertainty prevailing here too.

GDP growth hasn't exactly been the greatest. The NBFC crisis spooked the markets with the rise in debt defaults.

And the tax on the super-rich, announced in the Union Budget, led to a plethora of foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) pulling money out of Indian equities in droves.

Indeed, in July, FPIs have pulled out nearly US$ 2 billion from the equity market.

So how does one make sense of this? Should you panic and offload all your equity holdings just because others are doing so.

We strongly think not.

New Stock Alert!

We have an urgent update for you...

This is regarding top small cap guru Richa Agarwal's Rebound Riches project.

In this project, Richa Agarwal filters high potential stocks in the small cap space that are beaten down for no solid reason…and could potentially soar as soon as the market rebounds.

So far, Richa has already identified 3 exciting stocks in the small caps...

Now she has found the 4th rebound riches stock which is a market leader in its niche and is 50% down from its peak in January 2018.

And the super investors we track are not doing so either.

Indeed, despite the spate of correction we are seeing in the markets, none of the super investors that Sarvajeet and I follow have pressed the panic button.

Most of them have maintained their stakes in the companies.

Then there are others who have pounced upon the opportunity to buy more of the stock they already have in their portfolio.

One such super investor is none other than Pulak Prasad of Nalanda Equity Fund Limited.

We like Pulak Prasad's investing approach which is largely long term and fundamental.

He does not believe in extreme diversification. Rather, he prefers identifying a few high quality stocks and investing in them for long periods of time.

Because of the deeper analysis that goes into picking stocks, the stakes he has in them are quite substantial as well.

Indeed, we recommended a stock from his portfolio in July 2019. It is a stock in which his fund increased exposure from 4.38% in September 2017 to 9.3% in July 2019.

As you can see, there has been a steady increase in stake over the quarters. Even when the market correction has been relentless.

Due to his long term fundamental approach, he is not bothered about the volatile price movements in recent times.

He has adopted a classic value investing approach - Buy more of quality stocks when markets are falling.

We endorse this view. If the fundamentals of a company are as strong as ever, then the wild swings in its stock price should be looked upon as an opportunity to accumulate more of the stock.

And it's a strategy Sarvajeet and I have been sticking to in Smart Money Secrets.

Warm regards,
