StockSelect: Equitymaster recommends!

The "StockSelect" publication identifies for its subscribers safe blue chip stocks that they could count on over a long term. Under "StockSelect", research reports prepared recommend stocks from 2 to 3 years perspective.

Our independent research through StockSelect educates its subscribers to dispel the myth that every large company could be good and a safe stock. Hence the companies shortlisted for recommendations are screened on very strict fundamental and management quality parameters. And it is for this reason that not every company forming part of the benchmark Sensex, Nifty, BSE 100 indices makes it to the StockSelect research recommendation list. Besides an in depth analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the company, the report also objectively rates companies on The Equitymaster Risk Matrix (ERMTM), a proprietary tool.


What is the goal of StockSelect?

The goal of StockSelect is to recommend some of the safest blue chip stocks.


What does StockSelect offer?

The StockSelect recommendation has three parts to it.

The first part covers the rationale of the recommendation and the risk assessment for the stock. The risks are objectively evaluated via the Equitymaster Risk Matrix (ERMTM) score.

The second part is the review of performance of all StockSelect recommendations where we have not closed the positions yet.

The third part is the list of stocks which are most attractive from both a valuation as well as the risk perspective.

Please do have a look at a sample report for StockSelect.


Who is the editor of StockSelect?

Tanushree BanerjeeTanushree Banerjee (Research Analyst), the editor of StockSelect, started her career at Equitymaster covering the banking and financial sector stocks along with scrutinizing the RBI policies. And over the last decade, worked on developing Equitymaster's research processes that have helped pick out various multibaggers, across all sectors. She is a firm believer of "safety first" when it comes to investing and closely follows the investing philosophies of Warren Buffett, Seth Klarman and Joel Greenblatt.


What is the frequency of the reports and what is the minimum number of reports expected annually?

The StockSelect reports are sent out by the last Friday of each month. So there would be minimum 12 reports each year. Having said that if corporate actions or markets conditions warrant more frequent or special updates and recommendations, subscribers will get that through our special updates mails over and above the monthly recommendations. In addition to the monthly performance review, the quarterly result analysis of the companies covered under StockSelect are made available on the homepage of StockSelect.


What kind of returns can one expect through StockSelect?

Since the aim of StockSelect is to recommend relatively safe stocks, the service aims to recommend stocks which could generate returns that are in line with the average annual returns clocked by the benchmark BSE Sensex since inception in 1979. The BSE Sensex has since inception generated average annual returns of 15%. Nevertheless, our biggest multibaggers have been stocks recommended in this service that we have been asking subscribers to hold on for over 5-10 years because of their quality. Hence it should not be assumed that being safe stocks, the bluechips cannot offer multibagger returns.

According to us, large cap/ blue chip stocks should comprise at least 60% of one's total equity portfolio. However, a single large cap/ blue-chip should not form more than 5-6% of the total portfolio. This allocation will of course vary from person to person. For something that works best for you, we recommend you talk to your investment advisor.

Here is something our subscribers have to say about their experience in StockSelect...


What StockSelect does not offer?

StockSelect is a generalized recommendation service. We do not offer customized opinions for any particular subscriber or class of subscribers. We are not qualified financial advisors nor Investment Advisors and we strongly recommend our subscribers seek professional advice before taking any decisions for their investments.


Where StockSelect Fits In...

Asset AllocationStock markets tend to be very volatile. And putting too much money in a single stock can be very risky. In our view, large cap/ blue-chip stocks are the safest of the lot. Because of their large size, they may not grow as fast as small caps or mid caps. But they are relatively more stable and resilient to negative macroeconomic developments. This keeps them in good stead over the long term and makes them reliable wealth creators.

According to us, large cap/ blue chip stocks should comprise at least 60% of one's total equity portfolio. However, a single large cap/ blue-chip should not form more than 5-6% of the total portfolio. This allocation will of course vary from person to person. For something that works best for you, we recommend you talk to your investment advisor.
