Above 3% gain in June 2016.

stock-june-2016

For the month of June 2016, our markets took a breather from its rally. We had pressures from 2 events which were surprising, Raghuram Rajan exit and BREXIT. While both were shocking, none had any broad based impact on the markets. In BREXIT became an advantage to our markets. Post BREXIT, emerging markets became favorite’s among fund managers & India had an advantage.

In this period of uncertainty our portfolio had an edge. We had a gain of above 3% on our portfolio against the 2.40% gain achieved by the broad based indices.

Good news is that we have achieved this out performance against the benchmarks with only 60% exposure to Equity. Not fully exposed to the market is also an indicator that the markets are in the wait and watch mode yet. Following June and September results, we should see full loading to happen.

SENSEX could manage to be flat for the month, giving a clear indication that front line stocks are yet to show reasonable growth. It is the Midcaps and a selected few among them that are in good strength. Infrastructure sector had begun to show strength; we have about 5% exposure to the Infrastructure, Cement, Construction and Reality sectors. Most of the stocks in this sector have registered good gains.

ARSS Infrastructure has reached 100% gain within 30 days of our investment giving strength to the exposure we have in this sector.

Sugar & Paper along with NBFC’s are the leaders in the current market. Media stocks have shown growth, with the big releases like SULTAN, KABALI etc., to hit the screens this year, the rally here is likely to continue. We have PVR in our portfolio.

Automobile and Pharma exposure in our portfolio is getting considerably reduced. We have used the system rules to move of stocks and the action also eventually coincided with the future developments. There are news that Auto sector is likely to under perform and stocks are getting downgraded. Following the system diligently helps us be in the right sector at the right period and this has largely helped us outperform all the benchmarks.

Look forward to more fireworks in price moves in the coming months.
