An ideal portfolio for Someone in this market

POSTED BY Jagoinvestor ON October 13, 2008 COMMENTS (9)

What should be the ideal portfolio for someone in this market for long term ?

As far as i think , A good portfolio now will contain stocks which are beaten down because of panic selling , but still they are fundamentally sound .

My Recommended portfolio would be:

For Safe Investor (assuming time horizon of 3+ years)

Tata Motors
– Reliance Communications

For Risky Investor (assuming time horizon of 5+ years)

Jaiprakash Associates
Chambal Fertilizers
Praj Industries

People who want to trust someone more experienced and more knowledgeable should read Sudarshan Sukhani recommendation at

      There is nothing much to comment here . Most of your funds are equity funds and 8 is too much considering most of them are alike . You can just buy 2-3 funds , thats all ..

      Check you asset allocation and see if you are fine with that ratio .

    Its a mix of both fundamental and technical analysis .

    According to Fundamental analysis : the stocks looks long term players , sound company , one of the best players in there domain and blue chip .

    According to Technical Analysis : Most of them are beaten down a lot from there peak and available at attractive valuations .

    Once the bounce back happens these companies will be the first one to increase .
