  1. Dear Logaraja, are you really diversifying your portfolio by investing direct Eq. way? Please check the holdings of your existing MFs for the stocks you want to enter directly.

    Now show me the diversification.

    Avoid ITC in your portfolio. it Will not give you good returns in long term.

    From your list i only know about HDFC,L&T and ITC.

    These three are good business and should give sustained gain.

    But you should remember a SIP in Direct Equity(stock) is not the same as Mutual Fund. Its not ok to monitor these once or twice in a year. These might need much frequent monitoring and from much wider horizion. Which mean you will need to invest about 2-4 hours a week.

    If you understand the equities the three mentioned above is a no brainer choice and should easily beat market index.

      How much funds are you talking about to invest on a monthly basis into these stocks ?

      If you can split them into 4, I would suggest, ITC, HDFC, L&T and SunPharma. All of them have good management, consistent returns, good business model and bluechips.

  5. BanyanFA says:

    Your stock selection seems to be reasonable and diversified. I would also suggest to rather replace BHEL with a pharma stock such as Sun Pharma / Lupin / Cipla. This will make the selection even better.

    Just out of curosity, have you thought about investing via Mutual Funds rather than directly into stocks ?
