Interesting points about Portfolio
Below are some key points about the portfolio I have observed. These facts were listed based on careful examination of stocks and comparing with the normal thought process of investors.
1. No IT , Private Sector Bank and Pharma
So far we have analyzed quite a few portfolios and majority have either one IT or Pharma company in their portfolio. Some of the top investors does not have either IT or Pharma. For example Dolly Khanna does not have IT and Pharma or Private banks which is similar to this portfolio in this point.
This makes it interesting. There is division between top investors as to which sectors they should focus. They have difference of opinion as well and similarity as well.
2. 1 Sector 1 Company rule
This is yet another striking feature of Akash Bhansali portfolio. He has picked only a single company per sector. Here also we have seen contrast between the top investors. For example Investors like Subramanian P has multiple stocks from the same sector.
But Akash Bhansali has different approach. The sector he has selected is also very diversified as well.
3. Balanced Diversification
This is yet another striking feature of this portfolio. So far this is the only portfolio which has less than 20 stocks in it. All the other major investor we have analyzed so far have more than 30 stocks.
For example Hitesh Javeri had around 100 stocks in his portfolio and Anil goel , Ashok Jain have more than 30 stocks in their portfolio. There are many books which tell you not to have too diversified portfolio and also not to have too much concentrated portfolio.
The ideal number of stocks in one portfolio is between 10 to 30. Many top investors have not followed this rule but this portfolio follows it.
