1. How is the Investactive Portfolio created?

70% of the allocation for your portfolio is recommended for our list of Top Picks while 30% is deployed in short to medium term trading ideas. (Read our latest Research at click here )

1) Out of the 70% allocation to PL Top Picks, 40% is invested in our Largecap Top Picks while 30% is invested in our Midcap picks. These stocks are picked from the entire list of stocks researched by PL and considered to be in the Top 20 picks by PL Analysts. Each scrip within each category gets an equal weight. Each stock comes with a research report backing it as well as a long term target price. This consists our “Invest” universe with very low amount of churn.

2) Out of the remaining 30%, 20% is invested into our Weekly and Monthly technical calls while 10% is invested into Alpha calls, which are stocks we expect to move up sharply in the medium term but not covered by our fundamental research teams. Both categories are shorter term in nature and therefore likely to be more “Active”. Each such trade comes with a target and a stoploss to ensure the portfolio stays healthy, Each recommendation typically gets a 2% weight of the portfolio size.
