      Hi Anant

      Next one year will be the year of Real estate, Infrastructure, Retail, and Pharma sectors. So, you can choose small-cap stocks belongs to these sectors. However, before you enter check their fundamentals. One such criterion is to select those companies whose debt is very low.

      Start to accumulate these stocks in small chunks except ICICI Securities. You must have a long-term investment horizon to get a good return.

      Hold it. Broader markets are falling and so it also corrects. Keep adding in small chunks as the stock is down almost 75% from its high.

      You can hold the stock if your investment horizon is long-term. Having said that, don’t panic with the news flows as there is a global turmoil and broader markets are down.

      In fact, add some position to average the stocks or you may invest in other good stocks at the moment. However, you need to wait for some more time and let the trend reverses.

      The moment trend reverse, you can start investing in the stocks for long-term.

    Hello Mr Ratan,
    I have rupees 3 Lacs to invest. I prefer for long term investment (2-3 years). I’m planning to buy Mphasis, LT, MM, Axis stocks. Should i also consider some small cap or penny stocks, which are good in their order books and fundamentals. Please help with your precious knowledge, i really don’t want to put amount in FD with mediocre returns. Thanks Much.

      You can also add these stocks BHARATFIN, GNFC, AARTIIND, MANAPPURAM, JUBILANT, VMART, MINDAIND, VENKYS, and GSFC. However, in case markets corrects further, then average your position.

      Apart from the stocks that you are willing to enter, my view on Mphasis is neutral. Having said that, you can go ahead with L&T, M&M, Axis Bank.
