Bulls recapture Dalal Street after fierce fire fight …
On the hot Monday afternoon, I was indulging in my favourite activity of dozing and day-dreaming of multibagger gains.
Suddenly, the radio crackled.
“Vehicle with Tangos spotted two clicks from Dwarka Restaurant”.
It was Jigneshbhai. He had spotted a truckload of Bears making their way towards Dalal Street.
I was up in a flash. After the humiliating defeat on the previous occasion when the Bears had taken control of Jeejeebhoy Towers, I was determined to avenge our losses.
I grabbed the SMAW (Shoulder Mounted Assault Weapon) and the M32 MGL (Mobile Grenade Launcher).
The SMAW is a rocket launcher which fires 83mm HEDP unguided rockets. The M32 MGL is an equally awesome weapon. Together, the two can obliterate enemy forces.
Meanwhile, Mukeshbhai was already in the vicinity of Dwarka Restaurant. He and the other patriots of the ‘Bulls Army of Dalal Street’ were conducting reconnaissance and combing operations in the alleys of Dalal Street to flush out the Bears who were well entrenched there.
“Aiyyo Rama, Mar Gaya Re,” Mukeshbhai suddenly screamed, his voice muffled due to the mouthful of Gutka and the static.
The scream chilled my blood. I knew that the Bears had waylaid Mukeshbhai and captured him.
“Aaj Ya Toh Is Paar Ya Us Paar,” I shouted in defiance and unleashed a fearsome volley of rockets and grenades upon the Bears.
The strategy worked.
The Bears were not expecting such aggressive resistance and retaliation from the Bulls.
They released Mukeshbhai from their clutches, turned tail and ran away from Dalal Street.
Soon thereafter, the Bulls regained full control and sent the Indices surging upwards like rockets.
The Midcap and small cap indices were up a handsome 1.40% and 1.29% respectively.
Several individual stocks breached their upper circuit limits.
It is time to buy micro-cap stocks now: Shyam Sekhar
The indication that the Bears have gone for good has come from an important pronouncement made by Shyam Sekhar.
“The way microcap is falling, the bottom seems to be coming apart. Time to ping at few ideas,” he said, sending the clear signal that the time is ripe to buy micro-cap stocks.
Looks like one cant be lazy for too long. The way microcap is falling, the bottom seems to be coming apart. Time to ping at few ideas.

Ashish Kacholia Buys (Back) Acrysil Ltd
MMB Punters are known to be sharp as a tack. Their eye for detail is legendary.
On 26th March 2018, Ashish Kacholia bought a chunk of 221,240 shares of Acrysil from Everest Finance & Investment Co at Rs. 468 per share.
While everyone assumed that the purchase was a fresh one, the punters pointed out that Ashish Kacholia had merely bought back the same number of shares that he had earlier sold to Everest Finance & Investment Co on 29th March 2017.
The only difference is that while Everest had bought the shares from Ashish Kacholia at Rs. 516 per share, it sold the shares to him at Rs. 486 per share.
Prima facie, Everest appears to have booked the loss on its holding before it turned into a long-term capital loss.
It is not known whether Everest and Ashish Kacholia are connected in some way.
Ashish Kacholia was first seen as a shareholder of Acrysil as of 31st March 2016 with the same holding of 221,240 shares.

Varun Daga of Girik Capital holds big chunk of Acrysil
Varun Daga is the co-founder of Girik Capital, a PMS Fund, which is credited with having identified several multibagger stocks.
His profile became known to us when he was grilled by Ramesh Damani as to his investment modus operandi.
Varun Daga revealed that he follows the famed ‘CAN SLIM’ approach to identify investment opportunities.
He also revealed that the ‘CAN SLIM’ method helped him home in on mega multibagger stocks like Ajanta Pharma.
As of 31st December 2017, Varun Daga holds 1,41,463 shares in Acrysil comprising 2.73% of its equity.
Another individual named Paraskumar Harakchand Daga holds 54,770 shares in Acrysil as of the same date.
However, it is not known whether he and Varun Daga are PACs.
From Varun Daga’s investment in Acrysil, we can safely conclude that it meets all the requirements of CAN SLIM and is a fail-safe stock.
Shyam Sekhar is also a major shareholder of Acrysil
Shyam Sekhar was first spotted in Acrysil with a holding of 24,923 shares as of 1st April 2015.
The holding swelled to 35,682 shares as of 1st April 2016.
As of 1st April 2017, the holding stands at 42,903 shares.
The present holding is not known.
Prima facie, the aggressive manner in which Shyam Sekhar has been increasing his holding in Acrysil suggests that the stock is a high-conviction one for him.
Nigel DSouza explains charms of Acrysil
To understand what it is about Acrysil that the ace investors have found irresistible, we have to turn to Nigel DSouza of Mid-cap Mania fame.
Nigel has explained that Acrysil is a monopoly supplier of high-end quartz sinks and kitchen appliances such as microwaves etc.

Prima facie, the stock appears to be a beneficiary of the great real estate and housing boom.
It is also a beneficiary of the boom in QSRs (Quick Service Restaurants) given the large variety of kitchen appliances such as Dosa makers, tandoors, microwaves etc that it manufactures.
