ROI: Return on Investment

Winning Strategy

In the short run, stock price fluctuations are typically driven more by market conditions than by the particular company's storyline. However, over time, the stock price becomes increasingly tied to the company's story rather than market fluctuations. When the market is on an upswing, stocks recommended by Smart Gains often reach their target values well before the originally intended holding period. Furthermore, even in other scenarios, these targets are achieved earlier than the suggested period due to conservative estimates. The 'Open Recommendations' count typically falls below 10 during strong market performance.

Another contributing factor to these impressive returns is the disciplined and rational approach adopted by Smart VERC.

Stock selection approach

The stock selection philosophy is centered on determining fair value through a comprehensive analysis of fundamentals, unraveling the underlying narrative, and projecting future earnings. Recommended stocks are chosen carefully to ensure a substantial margin of safety. This analysis spans at least three years of financial performance, company activities, future growth drivers, and an assessment of management quality. It also considers factors expected to drive stock price growth, including shareholder friendliness, fluctuations in raw material prices, book value, change in promoter equity stake, dividend payout, P/E ratios, and PEG ratios.

Furthermore, research reports succinctly explain target price valuations. The focus is primarily on identifying 'growth' stocks, but recommendations for 'value' stocks are also included. The approach is all-encompassing, considering companies of all sizes for evaluation.

Ongoing Stock Monitoring   A dedicated research team vigilantly observes the recommended stocks, and subscribers receive regular updates on significant events, including financial results, rating upgrades, management outlook, and sector-specific updates. These reviews continue until a decision is made to exit a particular stock.

Research Report

With each recommendation, you can access a comprehensive research report on the website. This report provides an in-depth analysis of the company, which includes an assessment of its recent developments, financial performance over the past four years, latest quarterly results, competitive advantages, future strategies, projected earnings per share, market position, critical insights obtained from the latest annual report, conference calls, company presentations, management discussions, and sector outlook. Furthermore, the report delivers specific recommendations for the target price, stop-loss level, and investment duration, as well as guidance on how much of the stock to allocate within your overall portfolio.
