Breakouts - Lifetime 52 week highs - AVT Natural,Asahi Songwon,KKCL

Breakouts - Stocks in my Top 20 Convition Buy lists / watchlists making new 52 week / lifetime highs
Another Objective of this article is to make a case for select mid /small caps vs the `fetish` of large caps by most Investors.
So are Large caps safer than small caps?
Hmm remember the Titanic.. unsinkable..

Okay maybe large cap will not sink that easily thanks to "too big to fail" bailout by governments but a 30% to 70% fall in stock price can make good enough damage to your portfolio. ( equivalent of  `sink`)
Lets do a check.
  • India`s largest firm by Market Cap - Reliance RIL. Cmp 870. Down -44% from lifetime high of 1565 made on 11-Jan-2008. Chart here
  •  India`s biggest Automobile firm - Tata Motors. Cmp 983 down -27% from all time high of 1350 made on 15-Dec-2010. Chart here
  • India`s biggest Steel company - Tata Steel. Cmp 590 down -40% from all time high on 990 made on 26-Oct-2007. Chart here
  • India`s biggest Bank - SBI. cmp 2340 . Down -33% from all time high of 3500 on 5-Nov-2010.Chart here
  • India`s biggest Estate firm- DLF. cmp 210 down -83% from all time high made on 11-Jan-2008.chart here
Ok now you get the drift. Now overall the 30 stocks index Sensex is down -14% from its high of 21,000 made on 5-Nov-2010. And broader index BSE 500 is down -25 to -30%.
But if you look deep enough for value without any bias of small cap vs large cap,sectors and apply consistent filters i.e criteria to rate the stocks, there will always be good opportunities.
Basic criteria would be stock should have better fundamentals but lesser valuation ratios that the average Sensex stock.That is it should have better fundamentals -
  • better margins,
  • better earnings growth ,
  • better Return and Efficiency ratios.
  • lower leverage ratios
  • increasing and higher promoter holding
..than the average index Sensex stock but trading at cheaper valuations say  ~ 50% discount to the index. Its hard to go lose money over long term of say 1 to 2 years with this strategy. And this sums up my core stock picking strategy.
I also add more stringent filters such as growth in net cash, no pledged shares or FCCB`s, no significant capex funded by debt to minimize down sides risks.
Here are of my stock picks that are trading at lifetime highs.
Lifetime highs means something special. It means that that no long term investor is at a loss ( i.e every long term investor who hasnt sold his investment till date is in profit). That is any investor who is still holding the stock (that he had bought in any time of the past) is not in any loss.
and technically once a stock makes a new all time high,20% to 30% are seen in the near short term.
  • AVT Natural Products - Since reco. on 23rd Oct 2010 and reco. price of 95, current price is 270. New lifetime high. Broke its previous lifetime high of 150 on 7-Jun-2011 on posting lifetime high profits. Embedded interactive chart below ( Adobe flash player required)
