Hidden Gems & Value Picks 2014 Vs Small & Mid Cap Index

Dear Reader,

Benchmark indices made new milestones in March with the Nifty hitting the 9,100-mark and the Sensex moving past 30,000 levels for the first time. 

There is no doubt that the breach of the psychologically important targets comes with a mix of excitement, anxiety and fear. Since then, the markets saw some bit of profit taking on concerns over weak corporate earnings and sooner than expected interest rate hike by the US Federal Reserve which weighed on sentiment and resulted in correction of nearly 10% during last 2 months from all time high of major indices - Sensex and Nifty.

Excitement is understandable given the dream run in the equity market. The benchmark indices have gained close to 75 per cent each in an 18-month long one-way rally from the bottom of August 2013. 

At current situation, how does one know the right stock to invest in and that too at the right price which will ensure strong returns in the long term? This will be a question that will be the uppermost in the minds of most investors wanting to allocate part of their funds towards stocks. Especially in light of the heightened volatility in the markets in the past.

For instance, take a look at the period between 2005 and early 2008. During that time, there was a general sense of euphoria prevailing in India what with the country consistently logging in growth rates of 9% plus and the stock markets zooming to 21,000 levels. And then this optimism snapped.

The global financial crisis reared its ugly head and sent global economic growth and world stock markets including India into a tailspin. Suddenly there was nervousness all around. Forget bad stocks with bad fundamentals, retail investors in India were loathe to put in their money even in good companies available at attractive prices fearing that prices will fall down further. Then 2013 dawned, signs of recovery began to be noticeable and stock markets surged once again. And with stable government in place, major indices Sensex and Nifty made all time highs in March 2015.

Corrections in bull market are healthy and give opportunity to invest. Bull markets do test your patience and conviction. If you expect a straight-line  appreciation in stock markets, that is not going to happen. Profit bookings at regular intervals bound to bring the indices lower. A lot of the people who were left on the sidelines when the move was too fast over May 2014 and the rest of last year, now market is giving them some opportunities to re-enter.

The idea really is not to time the markets. That is a feat best left to speculators. For long term investors, even at present when overall valuations of companies seem on the moderate side, there will still be some stocks that they can look to add on to their portfolios. These stocks if picked at the right price by proven approaches can turn into multi-bagger opportunities.
