accumul8 Investing Philosophy

How many stocks will be there in the portfolio?

The goal is to start constructing a 20-stock equal weighted portfolio from scratch over the next few years. Ideally we should be adding 5 to 8 stocks in a year.

While all of them would not qualify for being a Punchcard stock (holding for life), nevertheless, these stocks are invested with a objective of significant capital appreciation over 1-5 years.

Allocation per scrip

On an average, each scrip will be allocated Rs.10000 (8000 to 12000) depending on the share price. Over time we would have invested 2 lacs on 20 scrips.

How much each individual needs to allocate is a function of their investing capital and you can arrive at your allocation in multiples of Rs 10000 invested in accumul8.

E.g., if you wish to have a corpus of 20 lacs in the accumul8 portfolio then an equal weighted allocation will be 1 lac per scrip. Portfolio Rebalancing will be done semi-annually.

What is the investing horizon of accumul8 portfolio?

Stocks picked for this portfolio is with a minimum investing horizon of 1 year and on an average 3 years with an objective of doubling the money every 4 to 5 years.

However, in the case of any new developments which is detrimental to the long-term prospects of the stock like new competitors, changes in regulation, fraud & legal battle etc. then we will swiftly cut our losses and vice versa for booking profits too.

How many trades will be done in a year?

In a year we plan to do on an average 8 to 12 trades. While the general objective is to do 1 buy trade a month , over the last many years I have observed that it is not possible to sync up the purchase of securities with the planetary movements (Calendar Frequency of Monthly / Quarterly) or the Gregorian calendar.

However, every month you can expect detailed profiling of one Bluechip stock from my accumul8 watchlist. However please note a detailed profiling does not mean it has been included in the accumul8 portfolio, but it can help you build a watchlist of quality stocks for further analysis.

Here is a sample detailed profiling:
