If you can call something a perfect storm, then this might be it.
The stock markets are bearing the brunt of all this. Since Sensex hit an all time closing high on 17 Jan 2020, it is down by 15%.
Naturally, there is panic amongst most investors. I won’t be surprised if the thought of selling all your stocks hasn’t crossed most retail investors mind yet.
What should you do in such a scenario, dear reader?
Like most things in life, the solution to most problems lies in the simplest of things.
For the coronavirus, most doctors have recommended following the most basic steps. Wash your hands often with soap and water. Cover your face if you have a cough or cold. Cook your food well.
We are anyways supposed to do most of these things right? But do we follow them regular basis?
The same goes with your investing too. One needs to just follow the basics. But we rarely do. I suggest now is the time to have a long hard look at your portfolio. Ask the following simple question and segregate your stocks into the following three types…
Will your business survive if there is a prolonged slowdown due to the coronavirus?
Type 1: Yes
Type 2: No
Type 3: Maybe
Now, if you have Type 3 stocks and they don’t make up most of your portfolio, you can leave them as it is.
The main concern is Type 2 stocks. These are the potential virus that can damage your portfolio. It’s better if you shift from Type 2 to Type 1. In the long run, you will survive this market and do well.
You Missed Our Emergency Summit On Black Monday…
This Monday was a Black Monday for the markets.
The Sensex crashed by more than two thousand points… due to panic caused by the coronavirus spread.
On the same day, we went LIVE with Richa Agarwal’s emergency summit the ‘Rebound Riches.’
More than 12,000 Indians like you had registered for this summit…
But for some reason you couldn’t attend this summit LIVE.
At this summit, Richa shared with the attendees the biggest money-making opportunity created by this coronavirus carnage on the stock markets.
Now, coming on to Type 1 stock. How do you know which is a Type 1 stock? How do you know if your stock will survive if there is a slowdown?
In the Indian stock market, here’s how I would define a Type 1 stock or Business…
- Is the stock an unavoidable part of the daily life of the consumer?
- Has the business seen such difficult cycles in the past and come out strong?
- Once, we find a solution to this coronavirus era, there’ll be a lot of focus on environmental issues. The new world will see a renewed focus on sustainable and clean living. Is your stock ready for this disruption?
To summarize it, these are stocks that will be a part of a long-term megatrend.
In a new India that I am sure will come out strong post the coronavirus impact, these are the stock most likely to do well.
If you correctly identify such Type 1 stocks, you should do very well in the long-run.
In fact, with the current market correction, we might find a lot of opportunities in such Type 1 stocks. An opportunity I am closely keeping a close watch on for my stockselect
