Forbes India's capital preservation portfolio versus a contrarian one

In 2012, the Forbes India investment special introduced two portfolios to the readers. The capital preservation portfolio was meant for the conservative investor.

Last year, our basic rule was to look at companies that have been profitable throughout the previous decade and have managed to protect shareholder wealth. This portfolio returned 25 percent against the 23 percent (till November) by the Sensex.

The year 2013 is an election mode year. The markets have returned 26 percent over the last year and there is a very high chance that we may not see this return in the new year.

At a time when the equity markets are already run up before an election year, Forbes India decided to look for companies that can navigate through volatile times. Our basic rule was to look at companies that have very low stock market risks and have been profitable for the last three years. We have looked at low beta stocks that are generally considered low risk. If the Nifty moves up by 100 percent, a stock with a beta of 2 will move by 200 percent.

If an investor had invested Rs 1,000 in each of these 15 companies, by the end of one year she would have made Rs 21,150, or 41 percent annually—in comparison, the BSE Sensex delivered 26 percent during the same period.
