A Stock picking guide
by StockAxis
How to select
stocks foryour
Portfolio
The success of each investor depends
on the crucial & significant decisions
they make in the market.
An important principle is to
acquire the skill of choosing
which stocks to invest in.
Most of the investors lose
money because they do
not do their research first &
rely on their brokers/
friends to advise them
If you want to smartly select shares
for consistent returns, then you are
at the right place!
Here are a few important
pointers on how to pick
stocks that can grow
your wealth.
01
01
Does the company have
Good Fundamentals?
If the company is not fundamentally
strong, then there is no need to
learn more about it.
Only when you are confident, you
can start researching the company
further.
Earnings Per
Share (EPS)
Increasing for
the last 4years
Debt toEquity
Ratio
Should be less than 1
(Preferably debt<0.5 orZero)
Return on
Equity (ROE)
Should be greaterthan
1
5
%(Last 3 YrsAvg)
You need to look into the financials &
the ratios of the company!
02
Do You Understand the
Products/Services offered
by the Company?
After filtering the companies, you
need to investigate the company’s
business.
Understand the company’sbusiness
model and learn about its
products and services.
It’simportant that the company is
easy to understand and has a fairly
straightforward businessmodel.
If you can understand the stock,
you can easily make an informed
decision whether to buy, hold or
sell the stock at any time.
03
Will people still be using
this Product/Service in
15-20 years from now?
Always look for a company with a
long life.Such companies havehuge
growth potential and the power of
compounding applies to such
companies.
Avoid investing in companies
having a life of just a few years.
04
Does the Company Have
a MOAT?
The concept of ‘MOAT’was
popularized by Mr. Warren Buffet.
Amoat isa deep, wide ditch of water
surrounding a castle. Some stocks
have a similar moat around them.
That’s why it’s really tough for its
competitors to defeat them in its
sector.
Find the unique selling point of the
company. Learn what thiscompany
isdoing that its competitors arenot
doing.
05
Does the Company has a
Big Debt?
Big debts in a company are the
same as a big hole in the boat. If
the hole in the boat isnot filled
soon, then it willsink!
Avoid investing in companies with
big debts. Also, avoid companies in
the banking sector with hugeNP
As.
06
Is the Company’s
Management Efficient
and Qualified?
The management is the soul of the
company.
Good management can prosper
the company to new heights. On
the other hand, badmanagement
can lead to the downfall of the
company.
Find out who is running the
company!
Go through the Vision, Mission,and
Value statement of thecompany.
Check who it’s CEO,CFO, MD,and
CIO are along with their
qualifications and pastexperience.
07
Is the Company constantly
in the news and overly
popular?
The stock market is based on the
sentiments of the people.
Overly popular stocks that are
consistently in news affect the
expectations and decisions of
the public.
That’s why try to avoid buying
stocks of such companies for easy
returns.
The hot stocks are highly
subjected to market volatility and
the boring stocks are the ones
that give the best returns.
A FewOther
Quick Tips!
Past results do
not guarantee
future
performance
Invest in Mid-cap
& Small-cap
companies for
higher returns
Cheap isn’t
always good,
and expensive
isn’t always bad
TIP

03
Happy
Investing!

you have donethe research
necessary to make a good
decision and when theprice
looks good, takeit!
