Katalyst wealth a guide to grow your wealth by 190 times


Published on

At Katalyst Wealth we are passionate about sharing our philosophy of value investing, and enabling every individual to become successful investor. We believe that every individual can become a successful investor because successful investing is more about the following few very basic things:

1. Common Sense
2. Leveraging the 8th wonder of the world i.e. Compounding
3. Patience and
4. Overcoming our EGO

Most people believe Equity analyst’s to be super intelligent and correlate successful investing with Intelligence Quotient (I.Q.); however we would like to clear this myth and bring to light the fact that the most intelligent of all Albert Einstein faltered in investing. So it’s more about Emotional Quotient and Common Sense when it comes to investing in stocks.

  3. 3. We will grow our wealth by 190 times. What about you ?Dear Readers,Becoming filthy rich is not a dream anymore…...provided you start looking at stocks as partial ownership ofbusinesses.At Katalyst Wealth we will grow our wealth by 100 to 400 times over the next 20 years. We are very muchcontented about the same and believe if given a chance all of you reading this too would be very happy onachieving such a feat. If you have already started believing that we are going to work very hard then you gotit wrong because we are going to work our normal self, however its been made sure that our money is goingto work very hard for us. www.katalystwealth.com
  4. 4. Compounding – Rightly called the 8th wonderBy now, you may have already started thinking that why 100 times to 400 times, well then thats because weare not very sure if we will b able to grow our wealth at a compounded rate of 25% or 35% over the next 20years. However we would be too happy to settle somewhere around 30% over the longer term.If you are confused, then please have a look at the below table that shows how our one time investment of 1lakh would grow over a period of 2, 5, 10, 15, and 20 years, assuming annual return of 8%, 25%, 30% and35% p.a.As mentioned above, we have been recording an average of around 37% since last 3 years by investing instocks (well, the bank FDs give a maximum of 10% and that too taxable so not an option for us over thelonger term), however 50% is not sustainable on a longer term basis of say 8-10 years, so we are prettymuch comfortable settling for somewhere around 30% (SENSEX has been compounding at a rate ofapproximately 17%, so 30% is not an up hill task). www.katalystwealth.com
  5. 5. Patience is the key !!As can be observed from previous slide, over time the effect on your wealth can be staggering.Consider: If you had invested 1 lakh in large caps in 1991, today you would have 1 crore. Not bad.But if you had put that same 1 lakh in High quality stocks from Mid-cap space, you would have 2-4 crore!!Well that’s why we wanted you to be patient. The real power of compounding comes with time. The earlieryou start saving and investing in right stocks, the more your money can work for you. Over a longer termeven a difference of 2% return per annum can make a difference of 1 crore to your wealth.It is important to understand that a good quality stock with robust fundamentals and strong growthprospects are eventually tomorrow’s large-cap stock. Being Mid-cap in nature, they are not widely trackedand researched, and are therefore not on the radar of most institutional investors.Being a Small investor adds to your advantageThankfully we are not dealing with the problems faced by many fund managers of managing a huge fund andthus limited opportunities of investing only in large cap stocks. We have a whole universe of small and midcap stocks to pick from which makes 30% Compounded annual growth rate quite achievable. www.katalystwealth.com
  6. 6. Some common sense – though not so commonCommon sense means paying attention to the obvious. This is not as easy as it sounds. We all have vividimaginations, and we tend to get lost in our fantasies. When fantasy replaces common sense, life becomesfarcical and even tragic.Its very easy to get lost in the fantasies of stock markets created by your broker or advisor and therefore itsall the more important to apply common sense when taking a plunge into the world of investments andtrading.Lets learn the lessons of Common Sense w.r.t. stock markets:1. Did you ever realize when your broker or advisor asked you to trade intraday and guaranteed that you can manage a daily return of 0.5-1% or lets say 10% per month by trading in equities then why did he himself not trade?2. Did you realize that if he’s so sure about 10% monthly return, why did he himself not get a loan of 5 Lakhs from the bank at 1% monthly interest and traded with the same for 9% effective return and thus pocketed 45,000 each month.3. Did you ever ask yourself that why do 98% of the intraday, short term, momentum seeking, and F&O traders lose and why does the world’s third richest person advises you against trading?Well, if you had asked such basic questions and applied common sense you could have saved many Lakhsthat you may have lost in your greed for quick and easy money. Its time for you to introspect and find out ifyou are one of the above poor investor who is always at the losing side or you are one of the smart ones. www.katalystwealth.com
  7. 7. Hamburger and stocks – What’s the correlation?Here is what Warren Buffett had to ask investors in his 1997 letters to shareholders – [Please read carefullyin order to understand the most basic principle of investing in stocks]“If you plan to eat hamburgers throughout your life and are not a cattle producer, should you wish for higheror lower prices for beef? Likewise, if you are going to buy a car from time to time but are not an automanufacturer, should you prefer higher or lower car prices?”These questions, of course, answer themselves.But now for the final exam: “If you expect to be a net saver during the next five years, should you hope for ahigher or lower stock market during that period?”Many investors get this one wrong. Even though they are going to be net buyers of stocks for many years tocome, they are elated when stock prices rise very fast and depressed when they fall. In effect if we draw acorollary, they rejoice because prices have risen for the ‘Cars’ they will soon be buying. This reaction makesno sense.Only those who will be sellers of equities in the near future should be happy at seeing stocks rise.Prospective purchasers should much prefer lower prices. www.katalystwealth.com
  8. 8. Overcome your EGO – It hampers the investment processIts no surprise that while making outstanding stock purchases, a certain percentage of errors in purchasingare sure to occur. Fortunately the long range profits from really good stocks should more than balance thelosses from a normal percentage of such mistakes.This is particularly true if the mistake is recognized quickly.However here we would like to point out one very important aspect of behavioral finance which most of thepeople suffer from. There is a complicating factor that makes the handling of investment mistakes moredifficult. This is the ego in each of us. None of us likes to admit that we have been wrong. If we have made amistake in buying a stock but can sell the stock at a small profit, we somehow lose any sense of having beenwrong. On the other hand, if we sell at a small loss we are quite unhappy about the whole matter.This reaction, while completely natural and normal, is probably one of the most dangerous in which we canindulge ourselves in the entire investment process. More money has probably been lost by investors holdinga stock they really did not want until they could "at least come out even" than from any other single reason.Over the time, its been realized that people are at an extreme discomfort when asked to exit from badinvestments in losses. They wish to first see the same stock reviving to their purchase price (which does nothappen in most of the cases of bad investment decisions) and only then do they want to exit from the stock. www.katalystwealth.com
  9. 9. Opportunity cost of EGOLet’s understand why the approach of not exiting from bad investments in losses is not good for investors.Say suppose you had invested in Stock A at Rs 100 based on someone’s free advice. Some months later thestock comes down to Rs 80 and you also find out (after carrying out a detailed research) that the companyyou are invested in is not good. Now, in such a case most of the people would pray and wait for the stock torebound back to Rs 100, though it may not happen forever.However for the above case, We would suggest one to cut the losses by exiting from the counter and investthe same amount in some other good company after carrying out complete due-diligence.The concept behind the same is very simple. The probability of recovering your losses is higher in case ofgood companies than in bad companies .Transactions involved -• Selling bad stock from your portfolio and• buying a new stock of a good company.By just paying 1% transaction cost you can save a great deal on opportunity cost of missing out on goodinvestments. Everyone makes bad investment decisions (even the likes of Buffett, Jhunjhunwala did),however it is important to acknowledge them to yourself and thus avoid riding on to your losses. www.katalystwealth.com
  10. 10. You too can grow your wealth – Only with a right mind setWe believe even you can manage to grow your wealth if you dont fall victim to the following problemsfaced by most of the investors: • Activity syndrome. [We come across many people (lets call them Mr. X) who tell us that they can manage a daily return of 0.5-1% or lets say 10% per month by trading in equities. So, beware Mr. Buffett, Mr. Gates, Ambani brothers and the new breed of billionaires because if Mr. X starts with a trading capital of 1 lakh as on today, he will surpass you all in next 25 years with his 36 lakh crore wealth. I think by now we should have had many such billionaires, but somehow not a single person comes to mind. You probably know, what we mean !!] • Phobia of watching your investments go down by 10-15% over the short term. • Impatient enough to hold a good undervalued stock for a period of 1 year and more. • Check the returns on your investments on a daily basis.As you must have already observed, becoming filthy rich is not a dream anymore, provided you use the"Power of compounding“, “Common Sense” and “Patience” smartly enough. Most importantly thesePowers are at a disposal of everyone, while some use it smartly by saving and investing early while most ofthe people fritter it away in their greed for quick and easy money. www.katalystwealth.com

  12. 12. Our PhilosophyIn Depth AnalysisAt Katalyst Wealth we are passionate about sharing our philosophy of value investing, and enabling everyindividual to become successful investor.We invest and suggest opportunities arising out of inefficiencies in the Indian stock markets based onGraham style bargains and high-quality businesses available below their conservatively estimated intrinsicvalue.Our background is in fundamental research and we leave no stone unturned when we research a company.We strongly believe in the golden rule of investing: fundamentals and results come first, hope later. We askthe tough questions that others can’t or won’t.We don’t use simple point estimates or rely on management’s “pro-forma” presentations. We know thataccounting is not standardized and easily manipulated, and we do not hesitate to point out when a companyis managing earnings or trying to hide something. www.katalystwealth.com

  15. 15. Research ProcessWe are not momentum players. We are not interested in point estimates. In our view, there are no shortcuts or rules of thumb. Each company requires a unique research approach and it begins with a carefulreview of its financial disclosures. We believe a detailed analysis of the disclosure and accounting choicesmade by management can often provide insight into risks that maybe unknown or underappreciated by theStreet.It looks simple in theory. But in practice, it takes good old-fashioned discipline and hard work. We don’tchase hot stock tips, nor do we rely on supercomputers or fancy algorithms. We don’t have a surefire systemfor timing the market (all good ways to lose money).We seek out well-managed companies with unbeatable products or services whose stocks are undervaluedor unknown by most investors — and offer the very best to you. For the same we log countless hoursresearching and crunching numbers before recommending a company.We look for the following traits in the stocks of companies we invest and recommend:• Companies that have the ability to generate high returns on capital employed because of the presence of a sustainable moat• Can grow earnings at a rapid pace without requiring access to outside capital markets• Are run by able, honest, and owner-oriented managers.• Can be purchased at valuations where the growth component of value equation comes free. www.katalystwealth.com
  16. 16. Research ProcessOur stock recommendations incorporate four key analytical categories:Business Operations: Often the market loses sight of fundamentals and gets caught up in the “story”. Ouranalytical techniques ensure that the “story” is supported by the fundamentals.Corporate Governance: Understanding how an executive team is compensated provides insight into itsbusiness objectives and accounting choices. We have learned that nothing in accounting happens without areason and understanding that reason allows us to gauge shareholder value creation and the overall qualityof management.Balance Sheet: Time and time again, accounting scandals and unexpected losses prove that what is “off” thebalance sheet is often more important that what is “on” the balance sheet. It is only through a detailedreview of financial disclosures that such exposures can be uncovered.Cash Flow: Companies go bankrupt because they run out of cash, not earnings. Our reports focus on thesustainability of cash flows, not just earnings. www.katalystwealth.com
