The Good Bad and Ugly weekly review : 23 Sep 2022

Reading Time: 6 minutes

Performance Update

  • The frustration continues . . . Nifty has made two attempts to break the receding trendline but has failed to sustain the stiff resistance around this zone. Positive global cues and results from major constituents can be crucial if we are to witness a fresh all time high on Nifty.
  • Nifty closed the current week at (-1.16%) while Nifty Next 50 (-1.54%) & Smallcap 250 (-1.64%) were the weakest. Despite doing quite good in the last 3 months, the performance in the last couple of months has been flat which isn’t a very encouraging sign particularly in the middle of a very solid rally that began around Mid June. Overall, Nifty Next 50 has remained the best performing index in the current FY clocking (+5.6%) while Nifty has stayed flat.
  • As we witness usually during times of weakness, money took shelter in sectors like PHARMA and FMCG which were the strongest this week returning (+2.1%) & (+3.8%) respectively while almost the rest of the entire pack remained weak. ENERGY & PSE lost (-4.4%) & (-4.9%) respectively. however on FY 23 basis, AUTO (+24%) , FMCG (+23%) & PSU Banks (+23%) have been the torch bearers.
  • WeekendInvesting Strategies performed relatively well compared to the respective benchmarks this week. Mi ATH 2 continues to do extremely well clocking (+1.42%) this week. This strategy also has been our best performing strategy in both last month (+9.6%) as well as in the last 3 months clocking (+33%) compared to (+14%) on it’s benchmark – the CNX 500 index.

The performance is updated below


Brand New Smallcase – Mi India Top 10 !

Mi India Top 10 has been received with so much love from all corners. We would like to convey our heartfelt thanks to each and every investor for the faith & we hope to see you invested for many many years and
This is AN AFFORDABLE – LOW CHURN – MONTHLY REBALANCED ROTATIONAL MOMENTUM strategy that invests in Top 10 trending stocks from the robust Nifty 50 Universe.


This Consolidated Document contains all details – Introductory Video, interactive performance Charts & ppt, all videos made on the strategy.


A SHORT COURSE to Help you Stay Calm in All Market Conditions

Usually, quick – sharp corrections amidst a Bull Run creates ambiguity in the minds of lots of new investors. The most important questions we often get asked is whether markets will crash from here ? Should we exit ? and few other questions like these. We have made several videos to help you clarify many such questions and help you have the RIGHT MINDSET for a rewarding journey in investing.

We have put together a few of our previous Daily Bytes which we think might be relevant for times like these. Do have a look and send us your thoughts, questions or comments if any.


The smallcase products are all LONG ONLY products that invest in various subsegments of the markets but have the momentum theme underlying in all of them. The strategies will pick strong outperforming stocks and remove weak ones once a week (except NNF10 which is monthly rebalanced)

These are all long term strategies that will create enormous wealth in each upswing and then maybe give some back in the downswing and repeating this process again and again achieving the compounding effect. With patience and grit to follow strategy over ups and downs over the last nearly five years it has been shown that much superior CAGR returns are possible than the benchmarks.
FY22 was also superb and I will let the numbers speak for themselves. You may read the Consolidated FY22 report.

We give an advance notice here on the upcoming changes in your smallcase for Monday . This advance notice can be used to ignore Monday update if there is no change. If there is a change indicated you can use the smallcase app or login to weekendinvesting.smallcase.com to see the rebalance. A back up email is sent by mid day Monday if you have not rebalanced by then and yet another one a day later.

Note : We are not including LIQUIDBEES as an ADD or an EXIT count.

The performance for the week and the month for all the smallcases is presented below.

STAIRS Revamped Models

We have launched revamped versions of our STAIRS models and we had made a video giving you a basic introduction to the models.

STAIRS is a LONG / SHORT derivative strategy that is designed to offer an uncorrelated diversification option to your equity portfolio. STAIRS will do well when there are up trends & also when there are down trends while giving up some of the gains when markets remain rangebound / volatile.

You may go through our latest weekly report for more details.

All 4 STAIRS models go in line with our fundamental philosophy of making the most and compounding aggressively when markets give us trends and go very defensive as trends fizzle out and enter a rangebound territory thus providing a robust capital & profit protection.

Effectively – STAIRS is a complete trading system (Futures & Options) that covers each of the following decisions required for a successful trading outcome:

• Markets – What to buy or sell ?

• Position Sizing – How much to buy or sell ?

• Entries – When to buy or sell ?

• Stops – When to get out of a losing position ?

• Exits – When to get out of a winning position ?

We also run a dedicated telegram channel for STAIRS which you may join using this link

We had a terrific LIVE session with Mr Neeraj Arora hosted by Team Groww where we discuss “How to Beat Nifty using Momentum” Check it out below
