 Investing using the buy-right, tsit-tight approach

Investment Objective

The strategy seeks to benefit from the long-term compounding effect of investments in good businesses run by great business managers to create superior wealth.

Investment Philosophy

By investing in shares from various industries, the strategy aims to outperform the market. MOTILAL OSWAL Value Strategy plans to invest in equities across the market capitalisation spectrum, focusing on identifying potential winners who will participate in successive stages of GDP growth.

Identifies emerging stocks or sectors that guarantee above-average growth and focuses on sectors and companies. The development of themes is emphasised. The “Buy and Hold” strategy. 

The strategy’s direction is to invest in equity and equity-related funds across large corporations’ entire market capitalisation spectrum. The strategy seeks to benefit from the long-term compounding effect of investments in good businesses run by great business managers to create superior wealth. 

Their portfolios are elevated conviction portfolios, with an ideal number of 25 to 30 stocks. We presume adequate diversification, but excessive diversification dilutes returns for our investors and increases market risk.

Concentrate on Return on Net Worth: Companies are likely to earn 20-25% on their net worth in the future.

  • The margin of safety: Buying a good business for a fraction of its true value.
  • Balance of growth and value:
    • The emphasis is on purchasing undervalued companies.
    • Investing in assets with stable earnings/cash flows at a reasonable price.
  • Long-term commitment View: “Money is made by investing for the long term,” in my opinion.
  • Bottom-Up Approach: Focus on individual companies and their management bandwidth to identify potential long-term wealth creators.
  • Concentrated Strategy Construct: There should be no more than 15 to 20 stocks.

Buy And Hold Strategy

  • The strategy results in low churn, lower costs, and higher returns.
  • A company is wisely chosen for investment after thoroughly examining its underlying hidden long-term potential.
  • Motilal Oswal strictly buys and holds investors. We believe that selecting the right business requires skill, as does holding onto these businesses to allow our investors to stand to gain from the entire growth phase.

Importance of The 'Buy Right: Sit Tight'

Real wealth is created by riding out most of a quality company’s growth curve rather than trading in and out in response to buy, sell, and hold recommendations. This philosophy lets investors and managers stay focused on their businesses rather than distracted by share price movements.

A strategy of purchasing high-quality stocks and holding them for long-term wealth creation results in significant cost savings for the end investor. Long-term wealth multiplication is only possible by sticking with the winners and abandoning the losers. 

While Buy Right is primarily the responsibility of the portfolio manager, Sit Tight necessitates the participation of both the portfolio manager and the investor. It requires greater accountability from the manager and greater involvement and understanding from the investor, resulting in better learning for the latter.
