Capitalmind Premium Portfolios

You want to invest, and we’re here to help! Here’s a list of our portfolios that you can buy into.

The Momentum Portfolio

We all love short term momentum. So we build some cool tools and a set of portfolios that you might like! The Momentum Portfolio consists of 30 stocks that are selected using our new DIY Toolkit on Snap (See video) and Snap Outliers. Read about how this strategy came around.

The idea is to have 30 stocks which will be only-long, and we replace them once a month. We will hedge when markets look weak, through the options markets.

(See the Momentum Portfolio)

The Long Term Portfolio

We regularly analyze stocks for long term opportunities. Stocks with an interesting story, a good valuation and a solid trigger for the future. And then we buy them in a portfolio format. With about 25 stocks in it at a time, this is a diversified portfolio focused on value.

We do not recommend buying in one shot, but with regular investment each month. and do not keep target prices.

(See the Long Term Portfolio)

Dividend Yield Portfolio

This is a portfolio of stocks paying high dividends particularly aimed at income seeking investors. Imagine buying a portfolio that has long term stable stocks (not mega-growth) that are cash-generating and give great dividends. We have put a threshold yield of 4% which is close to the current savings bank account interest rate.

This is a less volatile investment strategy, and we rebalance once a year.

(See the Dividend Yield Portfolio)

The Electric Vehicles (EV) Portfolio

We also have an Electric Vehicles Portfolio. Based on the (very) long term bet that Electric Vehicles will succeed. The suggestion here is to invest a small amount every month, but that also we will add more (or remove) stocks every few months as news comes along.

The Buyback Strategy

Buying back stocks is a common exercise in India, but there’s a way for a small investor to get a big advantage. We buy if there is an opportunity and then tender. A single buyback takes three to four months. We will only bother if there’s a 10% return, so that the “low risk” return on an annual basis will go to about 25%+.

(See the Buyback Strategy)

The Fixed Income Portfolio

Who doesn’t like fixed income? Fixed deposits are the most popular product in India. Yet, we like the bond markets. And we have strategies to attack them. Our fixed income portfolio has tried to generate better returns by just choosing mutual funds that are attractive but that only invest in debt.

Our latest post on this is: Go to the Ultra Short Term Funds now.

How to Allocate Money to these Portfolios

You have a fixed amount of money to invest, and probably earn some every month. Here’s our “Do-it-Yourself” way to allocate your money to Stocks and Fixed Income. It tells you how to divide your money in our portfolios.

If you only want to buy the Long Term Portfolio, here’s is the Capitalmind recommended approach to using the Long Term Portfolio.

The Old and the Interesting: Archived Strategies

We have an amazing portfolio in 2016, the Monsoon Portfolio returned 20% in four months. We built it based on the expectation of a good monsoon, which happened, and the stocks did their job too.
