Balaji Telefilms fulfils Porinju’s wish in historic tweet
I reported earlier that Porinju had recommended a buy of Balaji Telefilms.
Balaji Telefilms has been a sore point for Porinju because while the other stocks recommended by him in his historic tweet of 29th August 2013 have become multibaggers (with two magnificent 10-baggers), Balaji Telefilms had not kept pace.
Balaji Telefilms@31, Orient Paper@5, Orient Cement@32, KRBL@23, Mirza Intl@20 – all looking penny stocks, but not penny business. BUY

Porinju had lamented this fact in August 2015.
Balaji Tele was the only one reluctant to go multi-bagger, out of this tweet with a strong message for beginners: https://t.co/8D5I2nwqFg

However, when Porinju reiterated the recommendation in March 2017, I instinctively knew that we had a winner on our hands.
The reason for the optimism for Balaji Telefilms was not only the fact that Porinju had recommended it but that eminent investors like Billionaire Radhakishan Damani, Vallabh Bhanshali, Rahul Saraogi of Atyant Capital and other luminaries had grabbed massive chunks of the stock and were looking expectant.
@nooreshtech 2x target to be achieved 😉

Another dead giveaway was the fact that Sameer Nair, the CEO of Balaji Telefilms, had invested his own funds in buying the stock aggressively.
It is a matter of common sense that a culmination of these factors means that the stock has to fly sooner or later.
Balaji Telefilms has made some big-ticket announcement relating to its new digital platform called ALTBalaji and this has sent the stock rocketing into space.
With this surge, Porinju should hopefully have no cause for grievance against Balaji Telefilms.
Top-secret technique for finding multibaggers – Forget fancy names and focus on stocks that are in the doldrums
Porinju has let us in on his top secret technique for finding multibaggers. Unlike other investors who focus on stocks which are trading at record highs, Porinju looks for stocks which are languishing at 1-year low or multi-year lows.
“Many of the small and midcap stocks are going to grow very big in the next 2 years. People always fancy names, but it is time to look beyond because we have more and enough choice with respect to picking stocks,” Porinju said.
List of stocks now recommended by Porinju
Moneycontrol.com has done yeoman service by preparing a list of the five high-conviction stocks that Porinju is bullish on presently. Let’s take a quick look:
Selan Exploration, a “beautiful” company
Porinju lamented that Selan Exploration, which was once his favourite stock, had achieved the dubious title of being a “wealth destroyer”.
However, he expressed confidence that fortunes would change for Selan and it would soon deliver gains that are commensurate with its stature.
“Selan is a beautiful company. It is sitting on Rs 130-140 crore cash and they have huge potential to expand more and more production and this kind of low oil price regime, it is making Rs 30-40 crore kind of cash flow. So the whole marketcap is around Rs 250-300 crore,” Porinju said.
HSIL, an industry leader and an important company
Porinju heaped rich praise on HSIL. He called it “an industry leader and very important company, well-managed company”.
He opined that HSIL will have huge relevance going forward due to the vision of the Government regarding housing for all.
“The government is developing many schemes talking about the vision 2022, everybody have a home. This is practical. Our economy is structurally so strong we can do all these things,” he said.
Orient Cement – old favourite multibagger stock
Orient Cement has the distinction of being first recommended by Porinju on 29th August 2013 when it was available at the throwaway valuation of Rs. 32.
Today, though the stock is ruling the roost at Rs. 145 (340% gain), Porinju has not lost any of his affection for the stock and has recommended a buy.
The fact that Orient Cement has been flat over the past 12 and 24 months is actually a good thing because it shows that there are no expectations from the stock and this makes the stock a safe investment.
Reliance Industries will continue to give returns for next 50 years
Porinju is brimming with optimism about Reliance Industries, the ultra mega large-cap stock.
Though the stock has already given hefty gains since Porinju last recommended it on the basis that it was an “inflection point”, he has opined that the stock would see even better days and deliver hefty gains for the next half century.
Kotak Mahindra Bank – Rs. 1 lakh turns into Rs. 1400 crore in 32 years
Billionaire Uday Kotak is the whiz kid whose coat tails we should have hung onto.
It is unbelievable but true that a paltry sum of Rs. 1 lakh invested in the Kotak group 32 years ago is worth an unimaginable fortune of Rs. 1400 crore today.
"An investment of Rs1L made in Kotak Group in Nov 1985 is worth around Rs1400 crore today–a compounded growth of 40% over the past 32 years”

Porinju has a soft spot for Billionaire Uday Kotak given that he learnt the ropes of investing in Kotak Securities.
Porinju tweeted a picture of himself with the Billionaire and opined that “Kotak Mahindra Bank has potential to grow to $100 Bn. (MktCap in 10 years) in the given Economic environment!”
— Porinju Veliyath (@porinju) March 29, 2017
He also opined that the target of USD 100 billion is “without inorganic potential” and “very easy” to achieve and a “commonsense approach and not any number crunching”.
A growth of 15-20-25 percent for next 10-20 years is not difficult for a company to achieve given the inflection point at which the Country is, he added.
Porinju’s advice that we should buy stocks that are in the doldrums makes a lot of sense, especially in the present environment where everything is looking super-heated. Even if the stock markets crash, the doldrums stocks will remain unaffected because they have never had any gains to give up. On the other hand, if the stocks re-discover their mojo, we can effortlessly pocket multibagger gains from them!
