Primal Value Fund: My portfolio tracked as a fund

After nearly ten years in the markets, I started tracking my portfolio as a fund this February. The idea was that if I was not making better returns than the index then it is better to invest in index funds and concentrate on other things in life. I started with a NAV of Rs. 10.

The objective of the fund is to outperform the Sensex on a long (3 years plus) term with securities chosen primarily with a focus towards value and mid and small cap. The idea is to have a concentrated portfolio of between 5-12 stocks at any given point in time with a investment horizon of an average of 3 years.

So far, as you can see from the chart, the Primal Value Fund has managed to outperform the Sensex. Sensex return has been 10.04% and the funds return has been 15.54%. So far so good. I will try and update the performance on a quarterly or half yearly basis.

Also providing the current portfolio and percentage allocation.

Review: My new ebook reader - Infibeam PI

I bought a new ebook reader. It is the Infibeam PI ( . I have seen and used both the Amazon Kindle and Sony ebook reader. The main reason I selected the PI is because it was available in India. I did not have to wait for weeks to get my hands on it.

I will not go into detailed comparisons between the three readers I have used. The reason I bought the ebook is to read books. Although that sounds rather a stupid thing to say, I found some features on Kindle quite superfluous to book reading. Like the space consuming keyboard. I dont know of any book which comes with a keyboard, so why should an ebook come with one. If I have to surf the net, I will use my laptop to do it.

The whole buying process was easy and seamless. Delivery happened within 3 working days. The only regret I had was my father was not there to see this. He was pretty excited with the concept of an ebook reader and I had entrusted him with the duty of checking the condition of the parcel when it arrive…

Book Review: Let's Do Lunch by Roger Wilson

I read this book sometime back as part of my journey of understanding food and how it affects the body and mind. In the last two years I have managed to lose about 10kgs of weight and in the process have learnt a fair deal about food, although not enough to talk authoritatively with a nutritionist.

Roger Wilson's book deals mainly about how the author lost a significant amount of weight himself after trying his own diet plan. The diet he followed was eating fruits and proteins. His lack of fundamental knowledge of nutrition makes his commentary a suspect from the very beginning. This book is more a chronicle of the authors weight loss journey than a guide to healthy eating.

Conclusion: Better to avoid.
