Fund Update:

Motilal Oswal Midcap 30 Fund is an actively managed equity fund with the objective of creating long term wealth for the investors. It is a truly active fund with only 14.9% overlap with the benchmark, while the average for all peers is much higher at 28.6%. We believe in holding a meaningful weightage of all the stocks in our portfolio in order to generate alpha for the investors. Our fund holds only 24 stocks versus the peer average of 54 stocks. These strategies have allowed us to consistently outperform the benchmark in six of the previous eight quarters delivering an absolute outperformance of more than 20% since February 2018. For returns delivered, the fund is ranked one amongst all its peers on a one year basis. The fund has delivered a CAGR return of 18% since inception, 3% ahead of the benchmark. Our stock picking framework – QGLP, (Q-Quality, G-Growth, L-Longevity, P-Price ) is reflected in the key ratios of the fund– Quality – Weighted ROE for the fund is 20.9% vs 7.9% for the benchmark, Debt to Equity is 0.1 for the Fund (ex- BFSI). Growth – Weighted Average PAT growth for the fund has been 23% for the last 9 quarters whereas it is -6% for the benchmark.
The above portfolio statistics have been computed by considering Midcap peer funds (wherein there is no restriction on number of stocks). The concept is for illustration purpose only and should not be used for development or implementation of an investment strategy and investment advice to any party. (Source: Bloomberg and internal analysis; Data as on 29th Feb 2020; Quality and growth ratios as on December 2019 quarter end)

We believe some exciting themes will play out in the upcoming decade and have appropriately invested in these –

1.   Value Migration – More efficient and effective private players are overturning the legacy of PSUs across industries – AU Small Finance Bank, City Union Bank, Nippon Life India Asset Management are our plays on this story.
2.   Consolidation – Leaders in various industries are able to deliver better growth, higher margins while having better financials allowing them to outcompete their peers – Hindustan Unilever, Voltas, Titan, Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals are our picks.
3.   Demographic – With increasing consumerism and urbanization, there is a drive towards premium consumer products – Jubilant Foodworks, Bata, Page Industries, Avenue Supermart may benefit from this drive.
4.   Reform Driven – As seen from GST, RERA and Demonetisation the government is actively trying to promote business migration from the unorganized market to the organized market – Asian Paints, Astral Poly Technik, TTK Prestige, Havells India are likely to make the most of this.

The fund is primarily focused towards consumer and financial sector.

The midcap space tends to be more volatile than large caps, only seasoned investors who are investing for the long term i.e. at least 3 years or more should invest in this fund. Although volatile, midcaps in the past have given better returns than largecaps as there are more opportunities with low analyst coverage and institutional holding in the midcap space. The fund is well positioned to create long term wealth growth for the investor.

Market crashes are swift and sharp and threats garner more mindshare than opportunities. The same is true this time with a global meltdown triggered by corona virus spread and lockdowns. One needs to assess the duration and impact of this disruption. Directionally major economic impact may last from three months to a year for most companies. The relevant question to ask is whether its affects terminal value of business enterprises. Growth may take a hit for a year but does it alter the longer term earnings trajectory of the broader markets. Does the market correction factors such temporary near term disruption? Are valuations attractive?

  Valuations – Compressed and reasonable now; Nifty is trading at 16x TTM earnings, almost at its long term average valuation. It was trading at 25x in January 2020 and the froth has vanished. (Source: Bloomberg)

  Corona Virus issue – Earnings for companies will take a hit ranging from 3 months to a year. However, this doesn’t alter terminal value of companies; it’s more of a near term disruption and doesn’t alter long term trajectory of earnings.

  Fall in inflation, current account deficits, interest rates due to lower oil prices will benefit the economy making the macros much stronger. Lower oil prices are a long term positive for Indian economic fundamentals.

  Globally, Government is announcing stimulus/steps, in India welfare steps are already announced, stimulus is on the cards.

  Global central banks are on easing mode and RBI has cut rates and injected liquidity into the banking system.

  Lot of panic and fear already witnessed in the markets, sentiment is negative; though market positioning is attractive for long from valuation perspective; the current sentiment reminds me of the famous quote: Be greedy when others are fearful and be fearful when others are greedy.

The recovery begins not when we see light at the end of the tunnel, but when it’s a shade less dark than it was before.
