Blog meant for 18 July 2017 Tuesday

Dear friends,

Positive day for Nifty once again. It rose by 30 points and closed at 9916, a new lifetime high. It is slowly inching towards the 10,000 mark. We have to see whether investors do some profit booking before reaching that level or it will just be reached without any consolidation.

Global cues are flat tonight with no big momentum on either side.

As per technical analysis, Nifty is in Hold zone. The indications for individual stocks for short term are –

THE HOLDS ARE – DIVISLAB,  Maruti, Yes Bank, Reliance, Infosys, ACC, LUPIN, Titan, SBI,  L&T, HDFC Bank, HDFC

Wait to Sell – ITC, Axis Bank

Wait to Buy – M&M, Asian Paint

Don’t Buy – TCS


Question of the Day

Question – What is the average returns that Sensex has given in long term since inception?

Answer –

Sensex index was started by BSE (Bombay Stock Exchange) in 1979 with a base value of 100. Today, the closing value of Sensex is 32075. Therefore, in around 38 years, the CAGR for Sensex is 16.4 % p.a.

This 16.4% percent returns means that if I invested Rs.10,000 in 1979, then today its value would be around Rs.32.07 lakhs which is huge multiplication. The returns are much higher than all other financial instruments. Plus it has the benefit of tax free status for long term capital gains.

Sensex has 30 stocks in the index and not all profitable companies. Some of them are big companies and that is why they are in the index but may be making losses. In spite of considering all companies in the index, the average returns has been 16%. Suppose, we are smart enough to do some analysis and select only a few better companies, then we can definitely expect more than 16% returns p.a. We can expect anywhere from 18% to 25% p.a. returns in the long term (atleast 8-10 years).

All the best!
