How My Shoe Buying Craze Helped Me Recommend These 5 Stocks

Ever heard of Imelda Marcos?

She was married to Ferdinand Marcos. He was the President of Philippines for 21 years (December 1965 to February 1986). They became notorious for all the wrong reasons.

It was widely believed they illegally amassed a personal fortune worth billions. What's more, it seems a bulk of this has still not been recovered.

Now corrupt Presidents running countries is not something we haven't heard of. There are enough examples in the past should you choose to dig out information.

What caught my fancy is something else. You see Imelda Marcos was a compulsive shopper.

And she was obsessed with shoes.

They fled the country during the uprising of 1986. She is said to have left behind at least 1,220 pairs of luxury shoes. I won't be surprised if every pair was unique.

I love shopping for shoes too. I am often reminded of Marcos' vast shoe collection when I enter a shoe store.

But, I don't have that kind of collection nor do I aspire to. Besides, my buying habits are quite different.

I buy shoes for two reasons only - pleasing designs and comfort.

The 'Profit Accelerator' That Helped Wipro Multiply 2,000 Times Since 1991

Do you know what a 'profit accelerator' is?

It is one of 3 traits that the most profitable stocks have…

For instance, back in 1991 Wipro underwent a huge transformation…

This was the 'profit accelerator' the company needed.

Over the next 3 decades, the stock price of Wipro multiplied over 2,000 times.

Amazing, isn't it?

If you're wondering what exactly a 'profit accelerator' is, you'll find a full explanation of that and the other 2 traits that make a 100X potential stock, in this note.

In fact, if I find that a type of shoe is working well for me, I end up buying more of the same type when it wears out.

Sometimes, I take it a step further and buy 2-3 pairs of the same model in one shot. So I don't have to worry even if they are no longer available on the market later.

The idea here is pretty simple: If something is of good quality and is working well, it makes sense to buy more of the same, rather than trying out something else.

I can't help but think that a similar logic applies to investing too.

If you have high-quality stocks in your portfolio, it is a good strategy to buy more of these stocks when they're cheap.

Sarvajeet and I have observed some super investors do the same.

I wrote too you about how super investor Rajeev Thakkar, of PPFAS Mutual Fund, is increasing the fund's allocation to stocks.

Here's what I wrote:

  • If you look at the factsheet of his fund, you will see that, in February 2019, the fund was around 22% in cash. Over these months, the cash levels have reduced. So in the latest factsheet of July 2019, the fund is around 15% in cash.

And in August 2019, the cash exposure has reduced further to around 12.6%.

However, he is mostly buying more of the same stocks in the portfolio.

Sarvajeet and I have been doing something similar for Smart Money Secrets subscribers. As the markets fell, we recommended an increase in exposure to stocks recommended earlier. These are companies with healthy business models and a good management at the helm.

The market correction made the valuations of these stocks compelling. We pounced on the opportunity to increase exposure in 5 stocks from 50% to 100%.

Sarvajeet and I believe the market today is providing a great opportunity to buy stocks.

We don't recommend staying on the sidelines out of fear.

Warm regards,
