Our Service Microcap Millionaires Has Done Everything Wrong!

Apr 17, 2018

Taha Merchant, Research Analyst

Being part of the Microcap Millionaires team with Rahul Shah has been exhilarating experience.

You see, Microcap Millionaires is no ordinary service. It does everything 'wrong'.

Everything about it seems to fly in the face of the traditional approach to stock picking.

It recommends 'risky' microcaps... Yet is also has a large fixed deposit component and has shown tremendous stability in its returns since inception.

It picks stocks discarded by most as 'sure losers'... Yet it has an enviable track record with nearly 90% of its 35 positions closed in the positive:

It is most irregular in making recommendations... Yet it has been able to load up on stocks at, which have turned out to be the shrewdest of the times. Especially early 2014, and early 2016.

It doesn't meet company managements, do quarterly result analysis, forecast economic conditions, or even make financial projections... Yet it has very uncannily picked out dozens of turnaround stocks.

Microcap Millionaires is a study in paradoxes.

When we started it in 2014, Rahul quickly picked me to be part of its team.

This wasn't a coincidence. The service's philosophy is inspired by Benjamin Graham's teachings, and Rahul knew I'd read Graham's two most important books - The Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis - multiple times over.

Now Graham's books can get quite heavy! I think the only reason I managed to make it through them is that I'm extremely passionate about investing...

I've been sharpening my approach to stock picking for over a decade now. I hate forecasts and stock market chatter, and cherish independent, logical thinking.

Conservative to the bone, my biggest attraction to the stock market is the opportunities it offers to jack up returns while decreasing risk (equipped with Graham's teachings, of course!).

How We Were Able To Predict The Rise Of The IT Sector...

The NSE IT Index has moved up more than 21% between 16th August 2017 and 31st January 2018.

Would you believe me if we told you one of our senior research analysts, Apurva Sheth, had predicted this rise in advance?


Not only that, Apurva also zeroed in on one IT stock he believed would benefit greatly from the rise. And that's exactly what happened.

So what strategy did Apurva use for it? And how could YOU potentially benefit from it now too?

Buy cheap and sell dear is my mantra - no 'hold stocks forever' for me.

Whenever the market crashes, you'll likely find me grinning from ear to ear.

I'm constantly on the prowl for deep bargains. Nothing makes me happier.

For me, investing gurus don't get any better than Graham.

After having meditated over his teachings all these years, I couldn't be more certain that those who truly bother to read and understand Graham can make pots and pots of money in the market.

Microcap Millionaires results are a testament to this.

For all the 'wrong' that the service does, it has kept the moolah flowing to its subscribers like none other!

Here's to many more years of money-making, and market-bashing...
