The Smartest Stock to Buy for 2020

Nov 14, 2019

Richa Agarwal, Research analyst

Smart investors like to buy stocks when they're low.

And why not?

The biggest money is made in the stock market by buying high-quality stocks which are beaten down and then holding on to them until they hit a high again.

But with the BSE Sensex at an all-time high, can you really call stocks 'beaten down'?

That's where all the bad economic news coming out over the last few months comes into play.

Consider the latest economic news headline - the index of industrial production (IIP) slumped to an 8-year low.

All this negative news has been having its effect on the stock market, but not on all stocks equally.

So while BSE Sensex is close to its record high, in sharp contrast, the BSE Small Cap index today still is a massive 33% below its all-time high.

The bad economic climate has had its biggest effect on the stocks of smaller companies.

In fact, there has been an increasing neglect of smaller companies. Investors, who were falling head over heels for small caps just last year, and the year before, have now lost interest big time.

How do I know this?

This lack of interest is also showing up in their liquidity on the stock exchanges. Liquidity of smaller companies has taken a massive beating.

Lack of Interest in Smallcaps: A Buying Opportunity

Liquidity has all but dried up in smallcap stocks. It's down from a high of over Rs 50 billion to just Rs 5 billion now.

Now, liquidity is a funny thing.

It may have very little effect on the fundamentals and the intrinsic value of the business. Yet stock market investors generally love higher liquidity stocks, i.e. stocks that are traded in large quantities.

The higher, the better and the lower, the worse.

So much so, that most investors completely leave out stocks below a certain liquidity level.

Is this something to be worried about?

Not at all. In fact, this is very good news indeed!

This is a very natural part of the small cap cycle. Liquidity tends to increase as stock prices and investor's enthusiasm increase.

The reverse happens when prices and enthusiasm falls.

Now this could make buying and selling small-cap stocks in large quantities a little difficult.

But other than that, it's nothing to worry about. Especially if you are patient and can sit out any bad patch of liquidity or volatility in the market.

So you see, it's all part of the market cycle.

But why bother with smallcaps at all?

Well, the potential profits in small-cap stocks at such times is just too hard to ignore.

In fact, the best stocks in the small cap world can be bought at the most lucrative prices when they are being neglected by most investors.

And then there are times like right now when the whole category - i.e. small cap stocks as a group - are being neglected.

Investors have always had a manic love/hate relationship with small caps. They begin to neglect them when they're in the 'hate' phase and want nothing to do with them.

This usually happens when they've either fallen or seen no major moves for a while.

It is then that neglect begins to creep in. The volumes and liquidity in these stocks starts drying up. Investors start ignoring good fundamentals and many stocks fall to low levels.

That is exactly what we're seeing right now!

Investors are shunning small-cap stocks with least regard for their long-term potential and fundamentals. The low competition in such stocks from other investors means you now can scoop them up low and early, before others get on their trail.

This offers you the potential for massive profits.

I've uncovered one such opportunity for you today. I believe, this one small-cap stock is poised to create a lot of wealth in 2020 and beyond...

And I've recommended it to my Hidden Treasure subscribers.

If you're not a member of Hidden Treasure, get in now before it rebounds to higher levels once again!
