Hello Sir,

Hope you are doing well.

You know what’s the best part about investing in stocks without taking leverage is – Asymmetric payoffs.

If the process is right, stocks can go up 2x, 5x, 10x or much higher while the max you can lose on a stock is 100%.

Thus, if you focus on basics: business growth, reasonable valuations, promoter’s skin in the game, low portfolio churn, diversification, in the long term it’s highly unlikely one will not do well.

In line with our above philosophy, we keep scanning through 100s of stocks to invest in few good stocks.

Recently, I was looking at PSP Projects.

The company is known for constructing the World’s biggest office space, Surat Diamond Bourse. The company has also been recognized as the second fastest growing construction company in small category in India a few times.

The numbers of the company have been decent with good growth in sales and profits over the years.
