When you stay invested in a particular stock regardless of its trend, you lose out
on the possible gains which you could have generated by investing in stocks which
are actually moving up.
Actively managing your portfolio according to the prevailing market condition is the only way of making consistent profits in the stock market.
After all, what good are unrealised profits if you fail to book them at the right time?
Simply put, emotions are the enemy of an investor. ‘Buy and hold’ strategy implies
being invested throughout both, bull and bear markets.
It is effortless to stay invested during the bull markets when all the portfolios are green and alive, However, during bear markets or abrupt crashes, Investors make decisions based on emotions and sentiments.
If the market has repeatedly rallied after every crash, then why have investors practiced ‘Buy and Hold’ & booked losses?
It is of utmost importance to identify whether one is dealing in the bull market
or the bear market. Just like one cannot fly a kite high up in the east when the
winds are moving towards the west, one cannot expect their stocks to go high up
in a bear market. Even the strongest winners end up giving average returns if the
market direction is not in their favour. Simply put,
Your portfolio will soar high up only if it flies in accordance with the winds of MARKET DIRECTION.
The goal of MILARS is to perform the quintessential task of riding your profits when market is in an uptrend and protecting your profits or cutting your losses early when the market is in downtrend.
Studies show that 37% of a stock’s price movement is directly tied to the performance
of the industry group the stock is in. Another 12% is due to strength in its overall
It is important to understand which industries or sectors will flourish in certain market circumstances and which sectors have lived past their best days.
Seasonality, business cycles, changing technology & changing preferences are just the tip of the iceberg in the list of factors which impact industry ranking.
MILARS has exclusively designed Proprietary systems to be ahead of the curve in identifying the leading industries and ranking it according to their growth performance.
The leading industries will most likely be the industries which are experiencing a structural change which will last for some time to come.
Investors have often sought comfort in familiar stocks which they have heard about
over the years. The reason they might be familiar with the stock may be because
of their previous performances in the preceding bull runs. However, these previous
leaders may not be leaders anymore.
As the saying goes, past performance does not guarantee future returns. These sentimental favourites often turn out to be the dullest laggards in the next bull market.
At MILARS, we only choose leaders.
The next leaders, which are chosen by MILARS usually consist of quality earnings and growth profile. In essence, these companies are expanding either by gaining market shares from old/unorganised players or by launching new products/services. These companies may not be blue chips or even large caps. But at times these smaller leaders go on to become big names.
It is rightly said that profit is the lifeblood of a business. Business earnings
have a direct impact on the prices of their stocks. As an investor, what matters
most is the earnings of your shares in the company ie the EPS. Accelerating earnings
attracts investments from institutional investors. It also denotes expansion which
is an ideal feature of quality stocks.
MILARS emphasises on quality in investments & hence focuses on companies with explosive earnings growth showing high price strength.
Recognising real potential & reading between the lines are skills acquired over the years and MILARS Research Analysts constantly screen across the Indian equity markets to spot quality stocks with acceleration in earnings.
Relative price strength [RS] comparison is our proprietary rating tool that rates
stocks on the basis of their price performance. We have a percentile stock ranking
system where we place stocks in different percentiles [1-99] based on their price
The price of stocks discounts everything. When something in the underlying company is structurally changing, it is always reflected in the price.
MILARS’s Relative Price Strength [RS] comparison is designed to detect when something is up in the company and whether the stock is under accumulation.
Our Research team then actively works on understanding the reasons behind the price changes & determining its sustainability based on various price levels.
Exiting your stock at the right time is as important as selecting it. Most Investors
suffer from not being able to exit their positions at the right time and end up
losing a substantial stake of their gains despite their investments reaching new
peaks during their holding period.
Similarly, a lot of investors fail to realise that their stocks will have to generate a return of 100% to just reach the break-even price when in fact it dropped by 50%. It is unlikely for a stock, which dropped by 50% to generate such returns in the short term horizon without any substantial change.
Cut your losses short and let your winners run is the golden rule to optimize profits.
At MILARS, we have strict selling rules for both cutting losses and booking profits. We don’t budge from our rules at any point which helps us to stay in the game for a very long time. We maintain discipline by enforcing strict usage of the stop-loss tool which shields the portfolio from the negativity/euphoria that is created in the market which is fuelled by speculation.
You don’t pay anything until our solution works for you!
MILARS is a Post-Paid model which relies only on a variable fee charged at the end of each quarter.
We make money along with our clients, not from them.
Our fee structure is entirely variable in nature, which means that the fee is directly related to the portfolio performance.
Since we offer MILARS Portfolio Services with a zero fixed fee, We charge a variable fee of 15% on profit (Realised and Unrealised) on a quarterly basis.
MILARS portfolio is comprised of up to 15-20 quality stocks. These stocks are usually ‘growth stocks’.
High Water Mark is the highest value that a portfolio has reached. Our performance-based fee is charged only on the value increase in excess to the previously reached high watermark.
Value of the portfolio for computation of high watermark will be the value on the date when performance fee is calculated ie at the end of the respective quarter.
If a client’s initial contribution is Rs.10,00,000, which then rises to Rs.12,00,000 in its first quarter, then a performance fee of 15% would be payable on the Rs.2,00,000 return.
If the portfolio value drops to Rs.11,00,000 in the next quarter, no performance fee would be payable.
If then, the Portfolio rises to Rs.15,00,000, a performance fee would be payable only on the Rs 3,00,000 profit, which is the portfolio value in excess to the previously achieved high watermark of Rs.12,00,000, rather than on the full return during that quarter from Rs.11,00,000 to Rs.15,00,000.
Equity prices heavily depend on the businesses they belong to, any micro or macro
changes that impact those businesses can alter the risk involved in dealing with
those securities.Often times, the risk involved in staying invested in a particular
security increases beyond the risk appetite of the investor, with the investor himself
being no wiser about it.
MILARS constantly tracks not only the stock prices but all the changes in the valuations, financial reports, economic policies, industry or sector-specific news etc to stay ahead of everyone.
It is a common saying that one must never put all his eggs in one basket. It is
an implication that emphasizes on the importance of diversification. However, over-diversification
will only end up eating your profits. Diversification does not assure a profit and
does not protect against loss in declining markets. It is important to understand
that Quality always wins over Quantity. MILARS Portfolio
Service insists on quality.
The MILARS research team strictly follows a wide number of criteria while choosing stocks.We also make sure that you maintain a balanced and resilient portfolio at all times, which is neither over diversified nor under diversified.
Three key feelings adversely affect the returns: fear, greed, and frustration or
impatience. One must always stay calm in investment and business.
MILARS brings logic to investment decisions rather than let emotions take over. Our reliance and disciplined approach towards our six guiding principles enables us to seperate emotions from our investment decisions. We strictly believe in pursuing only winners and cutting our losses early so as to maintain ideal investments in our portfolios.
Most of the investors fail to track their portfolios. The fact that most long-term
investors adopt a 'Buy and Hold' strategy, only to have their investments soar high
up and come back down to the initial levels prove it. What good are unrealized profits
if you fail to book them at the right time?
MILARS maintains constant track of the investments and makes timely decisions so that unrealised profits can be booked at high levels and reinvested again at opportune levels, thus enabling our investors to utilize the benefit of compounding effect while reducing the invisible burden of opportunity cost to a great extent.
