You Can't Help but Pick Profitable Stocks to Buy Using these Proven Techniques

Do you find most stock recommendations are not very profitable?

  • Most popular stock ideas and recommendations are based on emotions - they are not rational
  • Even with great ideas, you are unable to fully profit as lack of conviction makes you panic at the wrong times - You need a disciplined process
  • What if you buy more of the wrong stock and less of the right stock?  - A smart position sizing process like we use, maximizes your gains and slashes your risk (not many services know how to do this right, nor do they even try)

Stop the emotional ups and downs and start investing with purpose and a disciplined process

Hi, I'm Shailesh. I have been helping investors like you since 2011 to achieve market beating returns with minimal risk, using time-tested principles of value investing.

We have Over 100 Years of Market History. We Know What Works in Investing. Why then, do Investors Keep Making the Same Mistakes?

Greed and Fear.


You see, humans evolved to follow the herd. There is safety in numbers. Imagine you were being chased by hungry wolves. Wouldn't you want to stay close to others?


This instinct is deeply ingrained in our brain. Also called "fight or flight response", it causes us to exit declining stocks and chase rising stocks. It causes us to buy stocks that are mentioned on popular financial television programs. You buy stocks that your friends buy. Your friends do the same. Smart people are not immune to this. This is a basic human survival instinct that has served us well in ancient times. It just doesn't work today when it comes to investing.


This creates the bubbles and later, crashes.

Majority of the stock investors have no defined strategy! They buy a stock based on its popularity and how they feel about it. This is the surest way to lose money in the long term. 

Best strategies in investing use the methods that have been proven to work consistently over time. The following 2 "factors" allow you to home in on the most profitable segment of the markets.

Take Advantage of the Value Premium 

Value Premium is an observation that over long period, value stocks out perform growth stocks.

 

Ironically, Value Premium was first described by Fama and French, the same duo who formulated the Efficient Market Hypothesis. As you know, EMH states that no investor has an advantage in the market. The Value Premium observation openly defied the Efficient Market Hypothesis, and as the research points out, has done so consistently in the last 80+ years.

Stack Up the Returns with the Size Premium 

Size Premium is an observation that over long period, small cap stocks out perform larger capitalization stocks.

 

This effect was thought to be lost in the recent years. However, new research shows that Size Premium still exists, as long as you remove the low quality stocks.

Small Cap Value Stocks give you the best risk-adjusted returns of all asset classes

Ibbotson Associates study suggests that Small Cap Value Stocks have historically earned on average 6% per year better than the market. This means that a $10,000 investment will grow to $95,000 in 33 years at market return, when you retire, while the same capital invested in small cap value stocks will give you a million dollar portfolio at retirement. This is the difference between a "working retirement" and one that you deserve

Focusing on the Right Asset Class is Important, but Simply NOT Enough

2 investors who own all the same stocks will end up with different returns. In fact, one of them may lose money while the other is wildly profitable.


This happens all the time. The reason is that investors typically decide how much to invest in any one stock either randomly, or they choose to just do an equal allocation. However, all stocks in your portfolio are not equal. They have differing expected returns and they also have differing risk.


There are strategies to size positions optimally, that either maximize the returns or minimize the risk of loss. These strategies are not secret, but they do require more discipline and knowledge of the math behind risk and returns to properly execute.

Once you position yourself in the right asset class, you need to size your positions optimally - you can choose to maximize returns (with increased risk of capital loss) or you can choose to minimize risk (and let your superior stock selection give you outsized returns)

To Recap: 3 Proven Techniques Ensure You Profit with Your Stock Picks

If you use these 3 techniques, you will buy stocks that tend to be potentially most profitable on their own, and then you will combine these stocks in the right proportion in your portfolio to give you the best risk-adjusted return possible. This is a complete strategy you can use to achieve superior performance in the stock market

Buy Value Stocks

Buy Small Stocks

Size Positions Smartly

The Media and Your Adviser will Tell You:

  • Small cap Stocks are Risky. 
    Actually this can be true. Small companies are more likely to go out of business. But if you are experienced and can spot the signs of ill health, you can avoid investing in financially weak and unhealthy businesses. If you refuse to do even a small bit of research, you may end up with bad risky stocks
  • Value Stocks are Hard to Find.
    And that is why they work. Think about it! If they were easy to spot, would they remain undervalued for long?
  • Over 70% of the  Active Managers Under-perform the Market.
    This is my favorite! This actually means that as much as 30% of the active managers actually do better than the  market for any given time period. Surely some of this is luck and some of this is statistical fluke. But you will find that great managers tend to be consistent performers and they have a process that they use with utmost discipline. You have to look hard to find these managers and you are more likely to  find them investing with smaller funds that close to new investments very quickly

well chosen small cap value stocks with proper portfolio Allocation will radically transform your investing for the better

It did for me.


I started investing like most others - hesitantly at first, with small amounts, and taking advice from others who had been doing this for much longer. Perhaps you started the same way.

Then I got caught up in the internet stock mania. I made a lot of money, and lost almost all of it.


There has to be a better way, I thought. I started reading all I can about investing. Someone told me to read books by Peter Lynch. I did. I read Fisher. I learned to read the financial statements. I have actually spent a lot of time back in the day poring over Value Line in the public library.


Over time I gravitated towards value investing. It just made intuitive sense. Practicing it in real world was hard, but I got better over time. I liked smaller stocks because they were just easier to analyze.


Then life caught up with me. You know, the American dream. A house, kids, moving in next to the Joneses, etc! I completed my MBA and then I started my climb up the corporate ladder.


Somewhere along the line I got bit by the entrepreneurship bug. In 2008 I found myself sitting across the table from a JP Morgan-Chase Vice President, pitching him for a loan to recapitalize the steel business that I had purchased a year ago. We had agreed to the terms and met again next Monday to sign the documents and formalize the loan.


Over the weekend, Lehman Brothers collapsed. The financial markets were in turmoil and the credit dried up overnight.


The banker demanded impossible collateral, and when I refused, he withdrew the loan approval. Leafing through my paperwork, he said:

"If you were in investments business, we would  fund you right away"

I was not in the investments business, but I was curious, so I asked why he said this. He said, "because I am looking at your tax returns and I have never seen such a consistent and solid investment performance year after year in my decades of dealing with people".


I did not think much of this at that time. However, over the next year I thought about this some more and realized that while I was busy with life and business, I had simplified my investing process to just focus on small and undervalued companies. And since I was consulting with businesses and later running my own small manufacturing company, I got really good at understanding what makes a business successful (or fail)


I had accidentally stumbled upon the formula for investment success. 


When I exited my steel business, I formalized my investment philosophy and launched Value Stock Guide. Ever since 2011, I have been helping investors like you achieve spectacular returns at minimal risk.

Proof of the pudding is in the eating

Shailesh Kumar who runs Value Stock Guide (VSG) is truly amazing. For the last 30 years I have being relying on Mutual Funds as well as various so called 'Stock Market Gurus' and various services, yet my returns have never beaten the S&P. Finally after reading The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, I started actively looking for a service that follows value investing and that's how I got to know of VSG. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and Shailesh has not disappointed. VSG historic returns speak for themselves and I've been lucky enough to witness them first hand.

About Shailesh

I am an Engineer, MBA, ex-Management Consultant, former CFO, and a business owner. I have seen first hand, most types of operational and financial situations companies find themselves in.


I believe that my advantage over other investors and wall street comes from having actually owned, managed and being closely associated with the kind of businesses I invest in. I do not just analyze data - I can also understand the management decisions and challenges, and can estimate the impact of these on the future of the business.

At this time, you may be wondering A Few Things

After all, not everything you read on the internet is trustworthy. How do you know what I write on this page is true and accurate? Allow me to answer a few questions I expect many to have at this time.

Are You a Real Person?

Yes, I am :). Twitter verified me and gave me the blue tick (@arohan). Search on Google for my name "Shailesh Kumar" and you will likely see more information displayed about me on the right side of the search page (atleast in the US). There is a page in Wikipedia about me. I have been mentioned or interviewed by New York Times, CNBC, Huffington Post, US News and World Report, and other national and international media. I have participated in Bloomberg Small Cap Equities conference and have been involved with the charity Portfolios with Purpose. And finally, I am a published author and you can purchase my books on Amazon.

How do I Know Your Performance Chart is Real?

Every one of my member is in effect an auditor of my results. For one, they can see the results of my recommendations directly in their own portfolios. Additionally, I email you all my transactions and they are recorded on the website in the Member area. My returns are calculated based on the transactions that you as a member already know of.

The Disadvantages

  • While the overall portfolio tends to stay calm, individual stocks can be quite volatile.
  • Every few years you will end up paying significant taxes when we sell positions with large profits :)
  • There will be times when the markets are crashing and I will not react if it does not change any of our investment theses. Worse, some of these times I might even increase my investments!
