Buy Right : Sit Tight

Our Investment Philosophy

At Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company (MOAMC), our investment philosophy is centered on two critical pillars of equity investing – 'Buy Right: Sit Tight'. 'Buy Right' means buying quality companies at a reasonable price and 'Sit Tight' means staying invested in them for a long time to realise the full growth potential of the stocks.

Buy Right

How do we 'Buy Right' ?

Over the last 19 years, our chairman, Raamdeo Agrawal (one of India's foremost value investors) has been analyzing the Indian equity market to come up with investing insights in the form of the Annual Motilal Oswal Wealth Creation Study. The learnings from all these studies have helped us evolve a unique and focused investing process  - 'QGLP'.

Every stock we buy in our Mutual Fund Schemes or PMS Strategies is based on our QGLP parameters.

Performance of QGLP stocks

Sit Tight

How do we 'Sit Tight' ?

While Buying Right is all about following a process, Sitting Tight on a good buy requires Focus & Discipline.

Buy and Hold: We believe in focused stock portfolios and are strictly buy and hold investors and believe that while picking the right business needs skill; holding onto these businesses to enable our investors to benefit from the entire growth cycle needs even more skill.

Focus: Our portfolios are high conviction portfolios with 20 to 25 stocks being our ideal number. We believe in adequate diversification as over-diversification results in diluting returns for our investors and adding market risk.

Buy & Hold

Focused Portfolio

Diversification beyond your control becomes unmanageable and adds no value to your portfolio. Over diversification can impact the overall performance of your portfolio. As in case of most portfolios, the top 5 good quality stocks contribute 80% of overall performance of your portfolio while the rest 20% is contributed by bad quality stocks.



"Great companies to invest are like wonderful castles, surrounded by deep, dangerous moats where the leader inside is an honest and decent person. Preferably, the castle gets its strength from the genius inside; the moat is permanent and acts as a powerful deterrent to those considering an attack; and inside, the leader makes gold but doesn't keep it all for himself.”  

There are two aspects to Q: (1) Quality of business and (2) Quality of management. The relationship between the two is multiplicative and not additive. Thus, if one of the aspects is zero, Q will be equal to zero, no matter how high the other.
Quality is a subjective concept, and yet there are several objective indicators of the same, as listed below:




"Growth creates value only when it takes place within the limits of a strong and sustainable company franchise, and these are rare.” 

In investing, there are two dimensions of growth: (1) Earnings growth and (2) Valuation growth. The G of QGLP addresses earnings growth, whereas the P(rice) takes care of the Valuation growth.

Earnings growth by itself doesn't mean much. It adds value only when the company earns returns on capital higher than the cost of capital. Hence, growth is simply an amplifier: good when returns exceed the cost of capital, bad when returns are below the cost of capital, and neutral when returns equal the cost of capital.

In the final analysis, G (i.e. earnings growth in a company) is a quantitative reflection of Q (i.e. quality of business and management). G has four dimensions:
  1. Volume growth - a function of demand growth matched by company's capacity to supply
  2. Price growth - a function of company's pricing power, which in turn is a function of the competitive landscape
  3. Operating leverage - a function of the company's operating cost structure. Higher the fixed cost, lower the unit cost incidence and higher the operating leverage
  4. Financial Leverage - a function of capital structure. Higher the debt-equity, higher the financial leverage and vice versa



"We like great companies with dominant positions, whose franchise is hard to duplicate and has tremendous staying power or some permanence to it.”  

Having established the present quality and earnings growth of the company, the next challenge to investors is assessing how long it can sustain both. In the context of longevity, competence of management is tested at two levels:
 (1) Extending CAP (i.e. Competitive Advantage Period), and
 (2) Delaying growth slowdown.

Extending CAP: Competitive Advantage Period (CAP) is the time during which a company generates returns on investment that exceed its cost of capital. Competition eventually drives down returns to cost of capital, and sometimes even below it. However, a company with a great business and great management keeps extending its CAP, sustaining high return both for itself and its equity investors.

Delaying growth slowdown: Competent managements can delay growth slowdown by
(1) new streams of organic growth, and/or
(2) inorganic growth via judicious acquisitions.



"In the Bible, it says that love covers a multitude of sins. Well, in the investing field, price covers a multitude of mistakes. For human beings, there is no substitute for love. For investing there is no substitute for paying the right price – absolutely none.”

Growth in stock price is a multiplicative function of growth in earnings and growth in valuation. The simplest way to improve the odds of valuation growth is by ensuring favourable purchase price.
The price of a stock has to be seen in conjunction with the value it offers. Price is what we pay; value is what we get. Therefore, stock prices are attractive only when they are less than the value perceived in the stock.
A simple rule of thumb of favourable purchase price is low P/E, preferably single-digit. However, in certain situations, low P/E may not be the sole determinant of favourable price e.g. during bottom-of-the-cycle, earnings of cyclical stocks are depressed leading to high P/Es; likewise, where companies are expected to turn from loss to profit, current P/E cannot be calculated.
