Negative returns this Samvat
Nov 10, 2015

Samvat 2071 is about to end. It's time to take stock of the year gone by. One thing is clear if we look at the numbers. All those who entered the markets last Diwali, are an unhappy lot. They expected big returns last year. Unfortunately, the markets have not obliged.

As per the Economic Times, this is the third worst performance in a decade and fourth worst in the last fifteen years. The BSE Sensex has lost about 3% this Samvat and about 6.5% in US$ terms. The hype surrounding the NDA government's ascent to power in 2014 has certainly died.

Today's chart offers a telling reminder to all who expect quick returns from the markets. Time in the markets is more important than timing the markets. All who embrace this eternal principle of the stock market achieve good returns.

Much delayed reforms are important for a bounce back in the market. However, we believe investors will be far better served if the focus is on individual stocks by following a bottom-up approach to investing.

As always, we recommend buying stocks with solid fundamentals only when they are available at a discount to their intrinsic values. Time will then work in your favour and provide you satisfactory returns.
