S VISWANATHAN: I am already having a Demat account with Icici bank. I would like purchase Global stocks like Amazon, Microsoft etc. through global trading option. Pl suggest if it is worth trading in global stocks.

Gaurav Garg:

Nowadays, a lot of people are investing in global stocks. It can give you good diversification; however, it is also important to track the background of the company before investing. Also, there are a lot of mutual funds which have started investing in global securities and hence if you do not want to research on individual stocks, you can look at investing through these mutual funds as well.

Santosh Prabhu: Sir i love for long term investment. sir i will be very much obliged if you suggest me 4-5 names of long term shares which give me some gain of profit.

Gaurav Garg: Following stocks might give good returns if held for long term:

  1. Berger Paints
  2. BSE
  3. CDSL
  4. UPL
  5. MGL

R N Mittra: Motilal Oswal has a plan under which Rs. 5L is to be deposited with them in demat and they will trade IN BLUECHIP FUNDS only and give the returns.

Is it a good investment?

Gaurav Garg: Bluechip might be a good investment option for long term time horizon. However, I will suggest looking at the portfolio constituents in order to track its performance and be aware of where your money is going to be invested.

What annual return can be expected?

Gaurav Garg: A good mutual fund should deliver 12%-14% for CAGR. However these kind of returns should be expected over a long time horizon (10+ years). Also, one should be fully aware of the fact that there can be phases where the portfolio returns can turn negative.

I have invested in Kotak small cap PMS and ICICI Infrastructure PMS on advice of my Financial Advisor 3-4 years back and now there is a heavy loss and even capital has eroded. What should I do now? I know it was big mistake by Advisor for whatever reasons.

Gaurav Garg: Last three year were not good for small caps therefore I will suggest to hold your portfolio for longer term in order to generated healthy returns. Also, you should not invest more than 20% of your entire investment amount in small-caps if you are not an aggressive investor.

Ved Chaudhary: I am having 150 shares of Symphony since 2018 bought @ Rs1700. Currently it is going down. Is it advisable to hold it or sell off. I can hold for 5+ years if it has chances to go up please advice?

Gaurav Garg: Stock is forming base in the zone of 750, you should try to accumulate stock at lower levels, there is no such fundamental flaws in company. It would be better to hold for long term.
