PMS Rating

IME PMS Rating

4 of 5 stars

Good Niche Momentum-based investment style: With a higher-risk higher-churn momentum-tilted investment strategy, Stallion is a good option for investors seeking an investment style based around momentum investing. While the AMC is still relatively new, they have developed a reasonable presence for themselves on the back of consistent performance on a momentum investing style.

The PMS/AIF AMC Rating is derived on the basis of our analysis on 5 key qualitative parameters that we use to analyse the quality of a PMS/AIF Provider. These include an assessment of the size of the AMC, the pedigree of the AMC, the pedigree of the team, the value of the investment philosophy & the level of differentiation. These insights of our central research team are documented in the IME RMS, and can be accessed during a consultation call with an IME PMS specialist.

PMS Background

PMS Investment Philosophy

Balancing Bull market by investing in Financials & Consumer tech and during Bear market Consumer & pharma

Invest in 2 kinds of Business
  • Asset Light Business which don’t need Capital to Grow
  • Companies that can reinvest all free cash flows at high ROIC with strong competitive advantages.
Focus on 4 sectors: Financials & Consumer Tech are chosen as they create alpha in bull market and Consumer and pharma will protect during bear market.

Investment Approach

They follow a combination of best of 3 Styles:
  • Core Stocks
  • Trends
  • Special Situation
This approach is chosen as
  • Core portfolio (40%-60%) works well in bear market but underperforms in bull market.
  • Trend portfolio (40%-50%) work well in Bull Market but have larger Draw-downs in Bear markets.
  • Special Situation (10%) only portfolio might have opportunities in sometime & be on cash in others. This combination is chosen not only to lower the portfolio volatility but will deliver decent returns.
CORE PORTFOLIO
  • Market Leadership
  • Management
  • Market Opportunity- Invest in companies that address a market that is large enough to allow investments to grow 4-5x without needing to compete.
  • Margin of Safety- Do not use PE Ratio’s instead focus on Capital Allocation & Distribution

TREND PORTFOLIO (don’t correct more than 25% & stay there, if the trend is still in play, it moves back to an all-time high in 3-6 months.)

  • Buy and rotate strategy 
  • find leaders in every bull market and stick to it
  • Buy sectors with high expected sustainable growth of more than 20% for the next 3-5 years.
  • previous bull market winners to not lead next bull market
  • Would buy companies that make 52 weeks highs than buying new 52 week lows 

SPECIAL SITUATION

Change in promoter from Indian to MNC; Large change in Regulation; Valuation + Earnings Re-rating is the goal; Upside expectation of 3-5x in 3-5 year; Demerger of a great division; Growth rate, Business quality & management quality play a role; Downside risk limited (mostly protected by cash or open offer); slowly build their positions as the story gets clear.  

Businesses Avoided
  • Businesses that don’t have recurring revenue or get revenues from govt/project business
  • Commodity like businesses that get worse with size
  • Businesses with a growth rate less than Cost of Capital
  • Hold on to looser for a Long time.
Avoid:
  • Commodities
  • Land Bank Play
  • Bad Promoter
  • Valuation Arbitrage
  • Government Businesses (B2G or G2B)

RISK MANAGEMENT

Exit from Core Stocks/ Sell
  • Change in Expected growth rate
  • Incremental return of capital employed
  • Competitive Advantage Period
  • Cost of Capital
