Do This to Find Your Next Smallcap Multibagger

Jul 1, 2022

Editor's note: Yesterday, Richa Agarwal was live at the One Stock Crorepati Summit where she talked about her #1 small-cap stock recommendation. Watch the replay here.

As a student, one comes across a lot of formulae, theories with little relevance in real life... At least the one's that mere mortals can relate to.

But a few strike a chord and are worth reflecting upon.

I count Pareto principle in the latter category.

When I read about it the first time, I could think of multiple ways it played out in student life.

This included the phenomenon getting 80% of project work done in just 20% of the time.

It's named after an economist Vilfred Pareto, an Italian who observed that a few people - around 20% owned 80% of the wealth.

Also known as 80:20 rule, this principle has been crucial to concepts like quality management, process efficiencies, and optimising output.

In investing, the relevance is no less.

Next 10 Yrs Belong to this Sector... Potential 33x Growth...

We rarely get to see this kind of growth these days.

It's a potential 33x opportunity by 2030.

The next 10 years belong to this one sector.

As per our research, this could be one of the fastest-growing sectors of the stock market by 2030... and possibly even beyond.

If you're an investor, then you simply cannot ignore this sector today.

Otherwise, you could be leaving a lot of money on the table.

We're going to reveal everything about this mega opportunity on 22nd August... including details of 3 stocks to ride this potential 33x opportunity.

You can click here to get all the details...

Those who have witnessed the joys of compounding know that 80% of the gains are likely to come in just 20% of the time they held a stock.

In fact, it could be even more extreme.

As an analyst, I see this principle play out when a few stocks in a portfolio lead to an overwhelming share of gains.

If you search for 100-baggers in last decade, you will realise out of the thousands of listed companies, there are only about 20 stocks that have achieved this glory.

What is even more interesting is that almost all of these were below a market cap to Rs 25 bn to begin with and fall under the category of smallcaps/microcaps.

Now, this should not be surprising.

Unlike bigger companies most of which are in a mature phase of their lifecycles, select small caps have a longer runway, and a higher potential upside.

Indeed, they come with some inherent risks like volatility.

Top 3 Stocks to Buy During This Market Correction...

Amid recent correction, stocks are trading at prices cheaper than what investors have paid to own them a few months ago.

The bears are short selling to profit from this down market, but...our Smallcap guru, Richa Agarwal believes now is the time to BUY them.

In fact, her latest research has revealed 3 stocks that have the potential to create India's next wave of 'Crorepatis.'

Just watch this short video right away and know how to grab the details on Richa's top 3 picks today...

But you only need a 10%-20% of portfolio's exposure to this asset class to make a big difference to your overall returns.

It's critical to be mindful of which stocks you choose for this 10%-20% allocation.

You see, there are thousands of companies listed under the small cap category.

But only a few are likely to break the mould of a smallcap and upgrade to a midcap, or potentially even a largecap in the long term.

Using a bottom up approach maximizes your chance of picking potential winners. This means focusing on business specific fundamentals and valuations, along with macro factors.

Unfortunately, most investors buy smallcaps on the basis of tips, recent price movements, and noise.

Here are some of the ways you can maximize your chances of success:

  • There has been a significant consolidation in the last one and a half year across different industries. The strong are getting stronger, and the weak, weaker. If you focus on players that are leaders or have a unique edge in the niche they operate in, you are likely to be betting on the right side.
  • Pick companies with nil or less dependence on borrowed capital. You would want to select a business that does need no or little debt to sustain growth, and that doesn't have to shell out most of its profits to pay loan obligations.
  • Avoid trying to time the market. Think from a long term perspective - at least three to five years. Focus on structural trends rather than cyclical. Then work backwards to see which businesses/companies will be most relevant.
  • For small businesses, managements can be the make or break factor. When you buy a smallcap stock for the long term, it's not a stock ticker you are choosing. It's like choosing a business partner. Understand the management you are betting on. Competence will not be enough. You will need to ensure that there is integrity too.
  • Last but not the least, be mindful of the valuations. Don't buy a stock until you think it's undervalued. You will have to understand the business and industry well enough to arrive at an intrinsic value. If you don't understand it, ignore it.

Warm regards,
