Latent View Makes Dream Debut at the Bourses Today

Data analytics services provider Latent View Analytics started off the first day trade with a massive 169% premium on the bourses today, which was largely on expected lines.

The stock opened at Rs 530 on the BSE and the opening tick on the NSE was Rs 512.2, against issue price of Rs 197 per share, changing the mood at Dalal Street that was spoiled by the disappointing listing of Paytm, the leading digital payments platform.

Market observers had expected the listing premium of more than 150% over the issue price, while the grey market premium was around 180%. Reasonable valuations, healthy financials, strong growth prospects and good relationship with blue chip companies supported the stock price.

Speaking of the stock markets, a right investing process can help you win in the long term. It might offer some unexpected and undesirable results in the short term but lets you fare well when you average the outcomes.

According to Richa Agarwal, Senior Research Analyst at Equitymaster, any investment process should not be judged based on individual outcomes. Instead, it should have stood the test of the time.

Her smallcap service Hidden Treasure has had its fair share of failures. But sticking to a disciplined process meant that Hidden Treasure's internal rate of return (IRR) increased to 24.38% since inception. This compares favourably to the IRRs of 9.6% for the Sensex, and 8.8% for the smallcap index in the same period (February 2008 - June 2020) as can be seen in the chart below.

The service's performance did suffer in the short term after the 2018 crash in smallcaps. However, the long term track record and the post Covid rebound underscores the strength of stock picking process.
