Markets this week !
The week ending on September 22nd, 2023, was one that investors would like to forget. Nifty experienced a sharp decline from 20,222 to 19,674 in just a week. This significant correction was mainly influenced by the global market sentiment, as the US market had not yet recovered.
The uncertainty in the market is primarily driven by expectations of increasing interest rates. The hopes for rate cuts have been challenged, and now the focus shifted to 2025. Despite these uncertainties, there is some good news. Domestic funds have provided support to the market, countering the foreign institutional investment sales. As long as the market holds above the previous top at 18,000 levels, there is no major cause for concern.
Let’s take a closer look at the performance of various sectors. The PSU (Public Sector Undertaking) banks stood out as the top gainers, with a 3.4% increase. Public sector enterprise stocks also performed well, gaining 0.7%. On the other hand, real estate experienced a significant drop of 4.3%, although it is still up by 45% on a FY24 (financial year 2024) basis. Other sectors such as metal stocks, private banking, pharma, commodities, and infrastructure also witnessed losses.
To understand sectoral momentum, we analyzed different periods—three months, one month, 20 days, and ten days. PSU banks consistently ranked high across all periods, signifying their consistent performance. Public sector enterprise stocks and IT stocks also maintained their positions near the top. However, real estate, metals, and financial services showed a decline in the short term.
Benchmark Indices Overview
Mid-Small 400 Index and the Small Cap 250 Index experienced declines of 1.8% and 2.1%, respectively. However, they have performed remarkably well in FY 24, displaying double-digit growth. The Nifty Next 50 has also been doing well on a FY 24 basis having clocked 19.5%
Spotlight – A Steady Core Portfolio – Mi MT Allcap
Now, let’s focus on one long-term favorite strategy called Mi MT All Cap. This strategy has gained popularity among investors, consistently outperforming the benchmark. Over a one-month period, the strategy has demonstrated gains of around 5.48% compared to 2.1% on the CNX 500 (benchmark) and over the six-month period, it has also shown positive performance. Since it went live in November 2018, the strategy’s absolute return has been remarkable at a staggering 250% compared to 93% on the CNX 500 index, with a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 32% as opposed to 14.6% on its benchmark.
It’s important to note that even successful strategies may experience periods of stagnation before catching up to their cycle again. Mi MT Allcap went through such stages, lagging behind the benchmark for some time before making a significant jump. It has since been recovering and is approaching its previous highs. One important aspect of successful investing is allowing winning strategies to run their course, as the strategy has shown an average gainer of 72% compared to an average loser of 11%
