Those returns were achieved in the period of last 7 months, and other than rebalancing the portfolio we did not buy/sell any stock. We bought all these businesses with intention to hold it for long time.

Also with these three portfolios, we are sharing three different re-balance strategies. You can decide which one suits to your condition.

Portfolio 1 will be re-balanced on yearly basis, Portfolio 2 will be every quarter and Portfolio 3 will be every month. In our opinion for retail investors yearly re-balancing strategy is the best strategy. And for the professionals like us, monthly re-balancing strategy is the best.

So, which portfolio and what strategy you are following?

We like all the three portfolios, but as a professional investor we prefer Portfolio 3 strategy. Where they only invest when they see any opportunity. Giving returns of almost 21%, where almost 20% of the portfolio is sitting on cash is desirable spot.

Portfolio 3 will be re-balanced today where we are looking to sell few shares of Axis Bank and Indiabulls Housing and buy Coal India and TCS shares. We are also looking a company to invest with our surplus cash, if you know any and want to share with us then feel free to leave your comment below.
