2 Stocks from Super Investor Sanjay Bakshi's Portfolio You Can Bet On...

Jul 12, 2019

2018 was a terrible year for the stock markets. The Sensex gains were in single digits. The Smallcap index was battered.

This year has also been quite volatile with wild swings in the indices.

The exit polls predicting a Modi win saw the Sensex surge around 1,400 points in a single day.

And then we had Manic Monday this week. The Sensex lost around 790 points - the sharpest fall since October 2018 - as Nirmala Sitharaman's maiden budget sent jitters among market participants.

If it is any consolation, dear reader, these swings in the stock markets have spared no one. Not even the big investors, or the super investors as we call them.

One of the super investors we closely track for Smart Money Secrets is none other than Prof Sanjay Bakshi. An ardent practitioner of value investing, Prof Bakshi has his own fund called the Valuequest India Moat Fund.

Prof Bakshi is not investing in the markets for the short term. Being a true value investor, he is investing in good quality businesses that boast of moats or competitive advantages for the long term.

We had recently conducted an interview with Prof Bakshi for our show Investor Hour. One of the many interesting things that he talked about was the perception of how markets behave. In his earlier days when he was studying in the London School of Economics, the courses focused on teaching the concept of efficient markets.

But legendary investor Warren Buffett has a completely opposite view. He believes that markets are inefficient and a true value investor needs to take advantage of these inefficiencies while picking stocks. This is a tenet that Warren Buffett has talked about in his letters to his shareholders.

And these letters have certainly played a big role in shaping up Prof Bakshi's investing philosophies. As they have shaped ours.

Markets have a tendency to become too optimistic or too pessimistic. So the excessive fear that is prevailing in the stock markets currently is a perfect opportunity to go shopping for some good quality stocks.

Indeed, Prof Bakshi has often stated when stock markets are extremely prejudiced against what you know to be a wonderful business, that very prejudice creates a strong investment opportunity.

Is Prof Bakshi buying actively in this current environment? Sarvajeet and I are certainly closely keeping an eye out for any new stock that he could potentially pick up or any bulk or block deal he could possibly enter into.

2008 Again? What Caused The Recent Market Crash…

Everyone has a different theory on what caused the markets to tank around 800 points recently…

It could be the Budget…

It could be the sell-off in Asian markets…

It could be the falling rupee…or any of a dozen other factors.

But to Richa Agarwal, this is a wealth-building opportunity unlike any she's ever seen before.

It could even turn out to be the biggest wealth-building opportunity since the crash of 2008.

And here's what you should do TODAY to profit from it.


Meanwhile, for Smart Money Secrets, we have already picked up two stocks that are part of Prof Bakshi's Valuequest Moat Fund.

The first stock is a company that enjoys the competitive advantages of economies of scale and customer stickiness.

The other stock is of a company operating in an industry where the entry barriers are high and where its unique business model has allowed it to generate healthy cash flows.

Both these stocks have scored highly on our Smart Money Score. And have healthy financials to match.

Even as the markets remain volatile, the big investors or the super investors are seasoned enough to not be perturbed by the fear all around them.

They will certainly be actively looking to pick up bargains for their funds. And that includes Prof Sanjay Bakshi's Valuequest Moat India Fund as well.

Meanwhile, let's take a look at two stocks that Prof Bakshi holds and which we have also recommended for Smart Money Secrets.

Both of them have strong business models with competitive advantages and robust financials.

We believe both these stocks have potential to deliver strong gains going forward.
