How's Our 'Buy SAIL, Sell HUL' Trade Doing?
Apr 14, 2016

Remember our bold 'BUY SAIL and SELL HUL' trade from few months back?

We agree that the idea is outrageous. HUL is the bluest of blue chips - one of the biggest wealth creators in Indian stock market history. SAIL, on the other hand, is a stodgy, public sector steel company with a not-so-great track record. The business models are as different as chalk and cheese.

We chose these two companies for the same reason we'd pick the tortoise over the hare...or David over Goliath....

Success doesn't always come from obvious sources...but from strengths and advantages that very few pay attention to.

Likewise, success in stock picking isn't always about a great business model.

A mediocre business model can indeed beat the heck out of a strong business model. It just needs one essential factor working in its favour.
