On This Day - 11 MAY 2018
Walmart Buys Flipkart...What Are You Buying?
The Bansals are probably still celebrating Walmart's decision to buy Flipkart for 16 billion dollars. This will push the overall valuation of the company closer to Rs 1.4 lakh crore.
Now that's quite a feat to achieve in 11 years. If it was listed, Flipkart would rank in the 20 most valuable companies of India at this valuation.
In fact, it is now technically valued at much more than both Dabur and Britannia (120-year-old companies) put together.
But while everyone at Flipkart is probably ecstatic about Walmart coming on board, shareholders of Walmart are not that excited. Walmart opened gap down in the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday and ended lower by 3% wiping out nearly 10 billion dollars of market cap in a day.
Now, I am sure Walmart and Flipkart both will remain in the news for some days to come. They will be on the front page of newspapers and occupy prime time slots.
But don't let that overshadow your goal which is to make money from the markets.
The Bansals have made money by bringing Walmart on board.
Now it's your turn to think about which stocks you will acquire to make money from the markets?
I don't know about you.
But readers of Profit Hunter Pro don't have to think too hard about this. They get the best of the best trading opportunities filtered first by fundamentals and then by technicals.

This Piece of Paper in Your Wallet Could Potentially Make You a Fortune...

First, I apply qualitative filters to build a universe of fundamentally strong stocks. I create a bucket of stocks chosen through the magnified lens of the Equitymaster Research team. You know that Equitymaster's research is one of the best in the country. So, a stock which has passed through their lens has good potential.
Secondly, I apply technical analysis tools like trendlines, volumes, support and resistance, momentum to identify timely entry and exit points. This helps in effectively utilising capital. This means you are invested in the stock only when the chances of moving up are highest.
And finally, I recommend stocks which pass both filters with a maximum buy price along with target and stoploss percentages.
Three-Step Process to Identify Best Techno Funda Trading Opportunities
I have been using this process for the last six months and am more than happy with the results.
And it's not just me, our subscribers are also a happy lot. Recently, Profit Hunter Pro completed six months.
I reviewed our performance and invited feedback from our subscribers. I told them to feel free to shower us either with golden roses or rotten tomatoes.
So far, I haven't tasted a single tomato. 😊 🍅
Now Walmart is buying Flipkart and none of our readers are buying tomatoes. But they surely have their shopping carts full.
I recommended that subscribers buy two stocks which passed both the fundamental and technical filters.
The first company is an undisputed king in its area of operation. It plays an important role in the link between a borrower and lender.
It's currently trading at multi-month support levels and looks ready for a bounce back.
And you know the best part about it?
I had recommended the stock earlier and we closed it with average gains of 11% once. This is the second time its throwing an opportunity.
The second one is a chemical company which may benefit substantially due to closure of chemical plants in China. It is one of the leading companies in dye and dye intermediates.
The stock moved up five to six times between 2015 and 2017. Recently it gave up nearly half of these gains and retested the support level twice.
It seems like if all goes as per expectation then the stock can generate gains of more than 16% in a short time.
So, if you are in a mood to go shopping this summer like Walmart then you know where to look.
