The Smallcap Rebound Has Begun (13 Stocks Up Over 20% in the last Month)

Jan 21, 2020

Richa Agarwal, Research analyst

A few days ago, I heard Rahul Chandra, a well-known venture Capitalist (VC) narrating his gripping journey of building one of India's oldest VC firms.

The co-founder of Helion Ventures, Chandra was an early investor in moneyspinners like Makemytrip, BigBasket, RedBus, TaxiforSure (bought by Ola for US$200 million) and so on.

He recently authored a book - The Moonshot Game: Adventures of an Indian Venture Capitalist. - a fantastic read and an insider's view of the startup world. It's full of candid stories - some of big successes, and even bigger failures... All of which make a compelling read.

When asked if VCs also struggle with biases like lesser investors do, he highlighted how the Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) could dictate the funding to disruptive startups, irrespective of their hazy profit potential in the future.

Hearing him speak made me realise how lucky I am.

As an investor in the listed small cap space where the future and profit potential is relatively clearer, it's so much easier to keep FOMO at bay.

But sometimes, especially right now, I believe this bias could work in your favour.

As you are aware, I have been writing to you about a smallcap rebound for months now.

In the past, whenever someone asked me when exactly a smallcap rebound is coming, I would avoid giving a clear timeline. In all fairness, no one has the crystal ball to gaze into and come with an answer.

Today, I have a different answer...

You see, the smallcap rebound has begun.

The year 2020 has started on a great promise...and it's delivering already.

The chart below shows the different gain buckets since December 2019 for recommendations in 'Hidden Treasure' - my smallcap service.

For instance...

...3 stocks in Hidden Treasure have gained more than 30% in just one and a half months...

...10 stocks have gained in the range of 20%-30% over this period...

...6 have gained 15%-20%...and so on.

The Smallcap Rebound is Here... See it to Believe It

For example, here's the performance of our best 13 stocks under coverage since December 2019 looks like:

Stocks Under Coverage The Beginning of a Rebound
Stock #1 32.2%
Stock #2 30.5%
Stock #3 30.2%
Stock #4 26.2%
Stock #5 25.2%
Stock #6 24.5%
Stock #7 24.5%
Stock #8 23.2%
Stock #9 22.2%
Stock #10 21.1%
Stock #11 21.1%
Stock #12 20.4%
Stock #13 20.4%

Closing price as on Jan 17, 2019

29 stocks under coverage in Hidden Treasure have gained in the double digits since December 2019.

Overall, the median and average gains in the open positions (recommendations) stand at 12.7% and 13.1% respectively.

And many of these are still 'Buys'

Now I have hidden the actual names of these stocks here for compliance reasons. You see, I can only share the names of these stocks and my views with my subscribers.

The reason I still wanted to share this with you is to show you the big money-making opportunity that is unfolding in the smallcap space as I write.

  India's Next War  
  Recently, both China and Pakistan have started amping up tensions at the border.

So, now India faces a possible 2-front war scenario.

And this calls for a heavy deployment of future-ready and highly advanced weapons at our borders.

We are talking next generation tanks, guns and even high-tech equipment like drones.

Now unlike in the past where all this money was spent with foreign companies, now, it's being redirected to Indian companies.

For a few Indian defence companies...this is a mega growth opportunity.

And for investors... it's a rare opportunity to make potentially huge gains as select defence companies see their growth, and therefore stock prices, potentially shoot up.

Last week, I wrote to tell you exactly why I believe this is once in a decade opportunity to get rich in the smallcap space.

I wrote to tell you of the three signs that showed small caps were ready for a rebound... especially in the ones I recommend...

  1. Smallcaps earnings have improved in the last one and a half year.
  2. The insiders in select smallcaps are buying their own stocks from the market.
  3. And the sign that makes me most optimistic that the recovery may not take long: I see liquidity coming back to the smallcaps.

If you are still waiting on the sidelines, I believe this could be the biggest miss.

This is one of those rare times when I believe that a fear of missing out (FOMO) will work in your favour.

And might even give you the chance to make gains like a successful startup without exposing you to the risks typical in this space.

So don't miss out. Wondering where to start? I recommend you begin with Rebound Riches: 3 Stocks Set to Become India's Next Mega-Stocks.
