Launching accumul8

Long-term Follow My Portfolio Service

If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die

-Warren Buffet

You work hard, endure lot of hardships to make money but have you paused to reflect on whether money works for you?

While there are myriad ways to invest money, numerous studies have confirmed that equities are the best possible option across centuries both globally and in India.

However, the irony is that not every investor is able to fully harness from equities due to various reasons ranging from lack of time, skill, capital among others.

At Stock and Ladder, we are passionate about the power of equities and we aspire to inspire as many as possible to create long-term wealth from equities through sensible common-sense investing.

To this end, we had launched acceler8 “Follow my Portfolio” service a while back, and I am really thankful to our wonderful subscribers for their support and encouragement. Incidentally, #acceler8 has had a great start, much more than what we could ever have dreamt off.

acceler8 has outperformed the benchmark NIFTY 50 by a wide margin, and the numbers speak for themselves.

While acceler8 caters to short term investing strategy with a horizon of less than a year (portfolio allocation of 15% to 25%), the core of your portfolio should be for long-term investing with a horizon greater than 1 yr., (ideal portfolio allocation 75% to 85%).  This is where accumul8 Portfolio comes into picture.

What is accumul8 Portfolio Strategy?

accumul8 is a “Follow my Portfolio” service focused on Long Term Investing with a horizon of at least 3-5 years.   

accumul8 Portfolio aims to invest in Bluechips at Reasonable Price (BARP) and own a collection of outstanding companies a.k.a - “Build your Berkshire”, inspired by Punchcard Investing.

#accumul8 Portfolio = (A) Blue-chips At Reasonable Price + (B) Build Your Berkshire + (C) Punch card Investing

Let us look at each of these components

A. Blue-chips At Reasonable Price

“Your goal as an investor should simply be to purchase, at a rational price, a part interest in an easily-understandable business whose earnings are virtually certain to be materially higher five, ten and twenty years from now”

-        Warren Buffett 1996 Shareholder letter

The bedrock of the strategy aims to buy Bluechip stocks at a “rational” price and not aim for absolute bargains. There will be no Christmas card shopping in January.

Happy to pay a reasonable price and if the market gives an opportunity to add to existing positions at a lower prices the “More of the same can only be wonderful”.

B. Build Your Berkshire

Charlie Munger, Berkshire's Vice Chairman and my partner, and I want to build a collection of companies   both wholly-and partly-owned   that have excellent economic characteristics and that are run by outstanding managers.  Our favorite acquisition is the negotiated transaction that allows us to purchase 100% of such a business at a fair price.  But we are almost as happy when the stock market offers us the chance to buy a modest percentage of an outstanding business at a pro-rata price well below what it would take to buy 100%.

Warren Buffett, Shareholder letter 1995

At accumul8, our goal is to own a collection of outstanding companies in our Portfolio.

C. Investing Punch-card

“I always tell students in business school they’d be better off when they got out of business school to have a punch card with 20 punches on it. And every time they made an investment decision, they used up one of their punches, because they aren’t going to get 20 great ideas in their lifetime. They’re going to get five or three or seven, and you can get rich off five or three or seven. But what you can’t get rich doing is trying to get one every day.”

-        Warren Buffett

Punchcard Investing is a philosophy that ensures that we think through each “Investing Punches” very carefully before we pull the trigger.

While there will surely be more than 20 punches in the accumul8 Portfolio wherever the lifetime punch is being used up, we will highlight the same for our subscribers.
