Updated on 28 July 2017
Value investing is all about spotting high quality shares at attractive prices. Dalal Street is full of experts who have a knack for spotting such stocks, many of which have the potential to deliver multibagger returns.
A good number of companies listed on the bourses have announced their shareholding patterns for the June quarter ended June 30, 2017. Based on these details, we tried to spot the stocks that ace investors bought during the quarter even as the benchmark indices headed for their lifetime highs.
Chennai-based marquee investor Dolly Khanna, whose portfolio is entirely managed by her husband Rajiv Khanna, remained busy in churning her portfolio during the previous quarter ended June 30, 2017. Khanna has a knack for identifying lesser-known quality stocks at the right time to bet for multibagger return.
During Q1FY17, Khanna increased stake in Dwarikesh Sugar from 1.18 per cent as of March 31, 2017 to 1.49 per cent as of June 30, 2017.
Besides Dwarikesh Sugar, the data available with corporate database Capitaline showed that Khanna also bought some shares in LT Foods, Nahar Industrial, Nitin Spinners, NOCIL, RSWM, Ruchira Papers and Tata Metaliks.
Rain Industries is the new addition in her portfolio. She acquired 1.27 per cent, or 42.68 lakh shares in Rain during April-June 2017. Khanna also entered Shreyans Industries with a holding of 1,51,285 (1.09 per cent) shares in Q1. Khanna has been investing in the domestic stock market since 1996.
June quarter shareholding data available so far suggests the ace investor (& family) hardly made any change to his holdings in the 16 stocks he holds. That, even when half of them showed signs of weakness and performed badly through the quarter. There are about 30 listed companies where Jhunjhunwala owns more than one per cent stake.
Data available for the 16 Jhunjhunwala portfolio stocks showed the ace investor did some tinkering on the Aurobindo Pharma counter, but left the other 15 untouched despite up to 28 per cent fall in eight of them during the quarter. He increased his stake in Aurobindo Pharma from 1.08 per cent as of March 2017 to 1.12 per cent as of June 2017. For detail investment portfolio please visit Rakesh investment's
