Over the last two weeks we’ve discussed small-caps, mid-caps, and the chartbook updates in depth, though we’ve not had a post dedicated to large-caps in quite a few months. Many of our upside price targets have been hit in Nifty 50 and Nifty Next 50 names, so I want to use this post to provide perspective on the most actionable long and short ideas today. [Read more…]
In our last India Chartbook Update post we discussed a continuation of the trends we’ve been seeing for most of 2018, as well as some new developments in the Commodities and Currencies space. Additionally, our mid-cap update discussed our shifting view of that market-cap segment and highlighted the best opportunities in our view. We also did a small-cap update post the following day highlighting our views there. Today we’re going to discuss any major changes over the last two weeks at a high level, which will direct you to the Chartbook areas to look for these themes.
During our August Members-Only Conference Call we discussed a lot of the big-picture trends from around the world and in India, but we wanted to do a long post discussing what we’re seeing in the small-cap space. In this post I’ll cover what we’re seeing in the index itself, as well as get into some of its most actionable components.

This is the recording from the live August Conference Call for Members of the Allstarcharts India! Before getting into individual stock ideas in India, we’re going to first start with the global macro perspective. Once we identify the direction of the underlying trends from a structural and broader view, then we’ll dive into the NIFTY and SENSEX Indexes on both longer-term and short-term timeframe. We want to look at Large-caps, Small-caps and everything in between before getting into the Sector and Industries themselves like Energy, Banks and Pharma.
This is when we finally break things down to the individual stock scenario with identified risk vs reward opportunities. That is what this is all about – aligning ourselves in the direction of the underlying trend while at the same time identifying where the risk is to make sure the potential reward is skewed exponentially in our favor. You will find that throughout this process we discuss Momentum, Fibonacci and Relative Strength. I encourage you to check out the Education Section so you know exactly where I’m coming from when you hear me mention these tools.

This weekend all of the Chartbooks on the site were updated, so this is a quick post to highlight some of the significant developments since they were last updated. In our last update summary we discussed the fresh breakouts in Financial Services, Consumer Goods, and IT, as well as the continued strength in large-caps relative to mid and small-caps. Today we’re going to check in on those themes and also highlight some new ones.
This entire year we’ve been talking about under-performance in the mid-cap and small-cap segments of the market. To take advantage of that we’ve wanted to be shorting, or at least avoiding longs in, the weakest names in sectors like Public Sector Banks, Infrastructure, Metals, Media, Realty, etc. Last month many of our downside price targets were hit from a tactical perspective and we took a more neutral approach, waiting for better entries on the short side. Now that we’ve seen a multi-week bounce off the lows in the mid and small-cap indexes, we’re going to revisit the space for the best reward/risk setups on the short side.
