EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

After the securities are issued in the primary market, they are traded in the
secondary market by the investors. The stock exchanges along with a host of other
intermediaries provide the necessary platform for trading in secondary market and
also for clearing and settlement. The securities are traded, cleared and settled
within the regulatory framework prescribed by the Exchanges and the SEBI.

With the increased application of information technology, the trading platforms of


stock Exchanges are accessible from anywhere in the country through their trading
terminals. The trading platforms are also accessible through internet. In a
geographically widespread country like India, this has significantly expanded the
reach of the exchanges. The relation between the primary market and the secondary
market is inseparable and the latter provides the much-needed leverage to the former.
One of the ways in which the secondary market fulfils this task is by providing
liquidity to the securities issued by corporates. Liquidity is the ability to buy or sell an
asset readily, at low cost and without substantial impact on its price. Some prefer the
term marketability instead of liquidity. But, nonetheless, the point is that in the
absence of stock exchanges savers would simply hold on to their savings either as
cash or in the banks as they will not be able to liquidate their investments or adjust
their portfolios. Secondary markets also provide safety to the investing public and
therefore, are instrumental in spreading the equity cult and savings habits- it enables
the public to put their money in securities instead of investing in small firms whose
integrity and competence they would never judge themselves accurately. Secondary
markets also reduce the cost of capital for the firms raising capital since the investors
are willing to accept a lower return on more liquid investments.

Page 4
My next argument is based on the well-known precept that secondary markets are a
barometer of the economy. The hypothesis of the efficiency of stock markets is the
cornerstone of finance wherein security prices are supposed to reflect, quickly and
unbiasedly, the impact of the occurrence of any major economic event. A booming
and smoothly functioning stock market is indicative of a healthy primary market, in
the absence of which the capital raising activities of the industrial sector can suffer a
great setback. As such, the secondary markets are expected to reflect the investment
climate prevailing in the country at any point of time.
Price discovery is one of the central functions of secondary markets. By providing the
actual prices at which trading takes place, they furnish very close estimates of the
inherent current value of these securities. Further, derivatives’ trading provides
information concerning expected future prices of a myriad of commodities,
currencies, precious metals, interest rates etc.
Secondary markets also enable corporates to figure out how well their issues will be
received before they actually put them on the market. Remember Lord Keynes used
to talk about animal instinct- that is investor sentiment. Nothing can help corporates
better than stock markets in gauging if investors are in a mood to respond actively to
new issues or not- and this gives them the ability to plan their capital raising activities
more efficiently.
Now that we have established that a strong and vigorous secondary market is essential
for an active and profitable primary market, its time to begin an analysis of the current
state of our stock market.

CHAPTER I
INTRODUCTION TO THE TOPIC

Page 7
The investment decision

In many cases, for example R&D projects, a project may open (or close) paths of

action to the company, but this reality will not typically be captured in a strict NPV

approach. Management will therefore (sometimes) employ tools which place an

explicit value on these options. So, whereas in a DCF valuation the most likely or

average or scenario specific cash flows are discounted, here the “flexibile and staged

nature” of the investment is modelled, and hence "all" potential payoffs are

considered. The difference between the two valuations is the "value of flexibility"

inherent in the project.

The two most common tools are Decision Tree Analysis (DTA) and Real options

analysis (ROA):

DTA values flexibility by incorporating possible events (or states) and consequent

management decisions. In the decision tree, each management decision in response to

an "event" generates a "branch" or "path" which the company could follow; the

probabilities of each event are determined or specified by management. Once the tree

is constructed: (1) "all" possible events and their resultant paths are visible to

management; (2) given this “knowledge” of the events that could follow, management

chooses the actions corresponding to the highest value path probability weighted; (3)

(assuming rational decision making) this path is then taken as representative of project

Page 8
value. See Decision theory: Choice under uncertainty. (For example, a company

would build a factory given that demand for its product exceeded a certain level

during the pilot-phase, and outsource production otherwise. In turn, given further

demand, it would similarly expand the factory, and maintain it otherwise. In a DCF

model, by contrast, there is no "branching" - each scenario must be modelled

separately.)

ROA is used when the value of a project is contingent on the value of some other

asset or underlying variable. Here, using financial option theory as a framework, the

decision to be taken is identified as corresponding to either a call option or a put

option - valuation is then via the Binomial model or, less often for this purpose, via

Black Scholes; see Contingent claim valuation. The "true" value of the project is then

the NPV of the "most likely" scenario plus the option value. (For example, the

viability of a mining project is contingent on the price of gold; if the price is too low,

management will abandon the mining rights, if sufficiently high, management will

develop the ore body. Again, a DCF valuation would capture only one of these

outcomes.)

Quantifying uncertainty

Given the uncertainty inherent in project forecasting and valuation, analysts will wish

to assess the sensitivity of project NPV to the various inputs (i.e. assumptions) to the

DCF model. In a typical sensitivity analysis the analyst will vary one key factor while

holding all other inputs constant, ceteris paribus. The sensitivity of NPV to a change

in that factor is then observed (calculated as Δ NPV / Δ factor). For example, the

Page 9
analyst will set annual revenue growth rates at 5% for "Worst Case", 10% for "Likely

Case" and 25% for "Best Case" - and produce three corresponding NPVs.

Using a related technique, analysts may also run scenario based forecasts so as to

observe the value of the project under various outcomes. Under this technique, a

scenario comprises a particular outcome for economy-wide, "global" factors

(exchange rates, commodity prices, etc...) as well as for company-specific factors

(revenue growth rates, unit costs, etc...). Here, extending the example above, key

inputs in addition to growth are also adjusted, and NPV is calculated for the various

scenarios. Analysts then plot these results to produce a "value-surface" (or even a

"value-space"), where NPV is a function of several variables. Another application of

this methodology is to determine an "unbiased NPV", where management determines

a (subjective) probability for each scenario - the NPV for the project is then the

probability-weighted average of the various scenarios. Note that for scenario based

analysis, the various combinations of inputs must be internally consistent, whereas for

the sensitivity approach these need not be so.

A further advancement is to construct stochastic or probabilistic financial models - as

opposed to the traditional static and deterministic models as above. For this purpose,

the most common method is to use Monte Carlo simulation to analyze the project’s

NPV. This method was introduced to finance by David B. Hertz in 1964, although has

only recently become common; today analysts are even able to run simulations in

spreadsheet based DCF models, typically using an add-in, such as Crystal Ball.

Page 10
Using simulation, the cash flow components that are (heavily) impacted by

uncertainty are simulated, mathematically reflecting their "random characteristics".

The simulation produces several thousand trials (in contrast to the scenario approach

above) and outputs a histogram of project NPV. The average NPV of the potential

investment - as well as its volatility and other sensitivities - is then observed. This

histogram provides information not visible from the static DCF: for example, it allows

for an estimate of the probability that a project has a net present value greater than

zero (or any other value). See: Monte Carlo Simulation versus “What If” Scenarios.

Here, continuing the above example, instead of assigning three discrete values to

revenue growth, the analyst would assign an appropriate probability distribution

(commonly triangular or beta). This distribution - and that of the other sources of

uncertainty - would then be "sampled" repeatedly so as to generate the several

thousand realistic (but random) scenarios, and the output is a realistic, representative

set of valuations. The resultant statistics (average NPV and standard deviation of

NPV) will be a more accurate mirror of the project's "randomness" than the variance

observed under the traditional scenario based approach.

The financing decision

Achieving the goals of corporate finance requires that any corporate investment be

financed appropriately. As above, since both hurdle rate and cash flows (and hence

the riskiness of the firm) will be affected, the financing mix can impact the valuation.

Management must therefore identify the "optimal mix" of financing—the capital

structure that results in maximum value. (See Balance sheet, WACC, Fisher

separation theorem; but, see also the Modigliani-Miller theorem.)

Page 11
The sources of financing will, generically, comprise some combination of debt and

equity. Financing a project through debt results in a liability that must be serviced—

and hence there are cash flow implications regardless of the project's success. Equity

financing is less risky in the sense of cash flow commitments, but results in a dilution

of ownership and earnings. The cost of equity is also typically higher than the cost of

debt (see CAPM and WACC), and so equity financing may result in an increased

hurdle rate which may offset any reduction in cash flow risk.Management must also

attempt to match the financing mix to the asset being financed as closely as possible,

in terms of both timing and cash flows.One of the main theories of how firms make

their financing decisions is the Pecking Order Theory, which suggests that firms avoid

external financing while they have internal financing available and avoid new equity

financing while they can engage in new debt financing at reasonably low interest

rates. Another major theory is the Trade-Off Theory in which firms are assumed to

trade-off the tax benefits of debt with the bankruptcy costs of debt when making their

decisions. An emerging area in finance theory is right-financing whereby investment

banks and corporations can enhance investment return and company value over time

by determining the right investment objectives, policy framework, institutional

structure, source of financing (debt or equity) and expenditure framework within a

given economy and under given market conditions. One last theory about this

decision is the Market timing hypothesis which states that firms look for the cheaper

type of financing regardless of their current levels of internal resources, debt and

equity.

Page 12
The dividend decision

The dividend is calculated mainly on the basis of the company's unappropriated profit

and its business prospects for the coming year. If there are no NPV positive

opportunities, i.e. where returns exceed the hurdle rate, then management must return

excess cash to investors. These free cash flows comprise cash remaining after all

business expenses have been met.

This is the general case, however there are exceptions. For example, investors in a

"Growth stock", expect that the company will, almost by definition, retain earnings so

as to fund growth internally. In other cases, even though an opportunity is currently

NPV negative, management may consider “investment flexibility” / potential payoffs

and decide to retain cash flows; see above and Real options.

Management must also decide on the form of the distribution, generally as cash

dividends or via a share buyback. There are various considerations: where

shareholders pay tax on dividends, companies may elect to retain earnings, or to

perform a stock buyback, in both cases increasing the value of shares outstanding;

some companies will pay "dividends" from stock rather than in cash; see Corporate

action. Today, it is generally accepted that dividend policy is value neutral (see

Modigliani-Miller theorem).

Working capital management

Decisions relating to working capital and short term financing are referred to as

working capital management. These involve managing the relationship between a

firm's short-term assets and its short-term liabilities.

Page 13
As above, the goal of Corporate Finance is the maximization of firm value. In the

context of long term, capital investment decisions, firm value is enhanced through

appropriately selecting and funding NPV positive investments. These investments, in

turn, have implications in terms of cash flow and cost of capital.

The goal of Working capital management is therefore to ensure that the firm is able to

operate, and that it has sufficient cash flow to service long term debt, and to satisfy

both maturing short-term debt and upcoming operational expenses. In so doing, firm

value is enhanced when, and if, the return on capital exceeds the cost of capital; See

Economic value added (EVA).

Decision criteria

Working capital is the amount of capital which is readily available to an organization.

That is, working capital is the difference between resources in cash or readily

convertible into cash (Current Assets), and cash requirements (Current Liabilities). As

a result, the decisions relating to working capital are always current decisions, i.e.,

short term decisions.

In addition to time horizon, working capital decisions differ from capital investment

decisions in terms of discounting considerations and liquidity; they are also

"reversible" to some extent. (Considerations as to Risk appetite and return targets

remain identical). These decisions are therefore not taken on the same basis as long

term decisions, and different criteria are applied here: the main considerations are

cash flow and profitability; cashflow is probably the more important of the two.

Page 14
The most widely used measure of cash flow is the net operating cycle, or cash

conversion cycle. This represents the time difference between cash payment for raw

materials and cash collection for sales. The cash conversion cycle indicates the firm's

ability to convert its resources into cash. Because this number effectively corresponds

to the time that the firm's cash is tied up in operations and unavailable for other

activities, management generally aims at a low net count. (Another measure is gross

operating cycle which is the same as net operating cycle except that it does not take

into account the creditors deferral period.)

In this context, the most useful measure of profitability is Return on capital (ROC).

The result is shown as a percentage, determined by dividing relevant income for the

12 months by capital employed; Return on equity (ROE) shows this result for the

firm's shareholders. As above, firm value is enhanced when, and if, the return on

capital, exceeds the cost of capital. ROC measures are therefore useful as a

management tool, in that they link short-term policy with long-term decision making.

Management of working capital

Guided by the above criteria, management will use a combination of policies and

techniques for the management of working capital. These policies aim at managing

the current assets (generally cash and cash equivalents, inventories and debtors) and

the short term financing, such that cash flows and returns are acceptable.

Cash management. Identify the cash balance which allows for the business to meet

day to day expenses, but reduces cash holding costs.

Page 15
Inventory management. Identify the level of inventory which allows for uninterrupted

production but reduces the investment in raw materials - and minimizes reordering

costs - and hence increases cash flow; see Supply chain management; Just In Time

(JIT); Economic order quantity (EOQ); Economic production quantity (EPQ).

Debtors management. Identify the appropriate credit policy, i.e. credit terms which

will attract customers, such that any impact on cash flows and the cash conversion

cycle will be offset by increased revenue and hence Return on Capital (or vice versa);

see Discounts and allowances.

Short term financing. Identify the appropriate source of financing, given the cash

conversion cycle: the inventory is ideally financed by credit granted by the supplier;

however, it may be necessary to utilize a bank loan (or overdraft), or to "convert

debtors to cash" through "factoring".

Financial risk management

Risk management is the process of measuring risk and then developing and

implementing strategies to manage that risk. Financial risk management focuses on

risks that can be managed ("hedged") using traded financial instruments (typically

changes in commodity prices, interest rates, foreign exchange rates and stock prices).

Financial risk management will also play an important role in cash management.

This area is related to corporate finance in two ways. Firstly, firm exposure to

business risk is a direct result of previous Investment and Financing decisions.

Secondly, both disciplines share the goal of creating, or enhancing, firm value. All

Page 16
large corporations have risk management teams, and small firms practice informal, if

not formal, risk management.

Derivatives are the instruments most commonly used in Financial risk management.

Because unique derivative contracts tend to be costly to create and monitor, the most

cost-effective financial risk management methods usually involve derivatives that

trade on well-established financial markets. These standard derivative instruments

include options, futures contracts, forward contracts, and swaps.

Investment banking

Use of the term “corporate finance” varies considerably across the world. In the

United States it is used, as above, to describe activities, decisions and techniques that

deal with many aspects of a company’s finances and capital. In the United Kingdom

and Commonwealth countries, the terms “corporate finance” and “corporate

financier” tend to be associated with investment banking - i.e. with transactions in

which capital is raised for the corporation

Personal and public finance

Corporate finance utilizes tools from almost all areas of finance. Some of the tools

developed by and for corporations have broad application to entities other than

corporations, for example, to partnerships, sole proprietorships, not-for-profit

organizations, governments, mutual funds, and personal wealth management. But in

other cases their application is very limited outside of the corporate finance arena.

Because corporations deal in quantities of money much greater than individuals, the

Page 17
analysis has developed into a discipline of its own. It can be differentiated from

personal finance and public finance.

CHAPTER II
LITRATURE REVIEW

INVESTMENT CONCEPTS

“Investment” or “Investing”, like value is a word of many meanings. Evolution of

new investment concepts would result a dramatically change of the whole

Page 19
investment scene over next few years. Basically, there are three concepts of

investment:

1. Economic investment i.e. an economists’ definition of investment.

2. Investment in a more general or extended sense, which is used by “the man on

the street”

3. Financial investment, the sense in which we are going to be very much

interested.

1. Economic Investment includes net additions to the capital stock of society.

“Capital stock of society” means those goods, which are used in the

production of other goods. In society there are a number of goods (such as

building, machineries etc.), which are used to produce other goods. These

means of production are considered as the capital stock of society. Thus,

investment in the capital stock means an increase in buildings, machineries or

inventories over the amount of equivalent goods that existed, say, one year ago

at the same time.

2. The everyday usage of the term investment can mean a variety of things, but

to the common man on the street it usually refers to a money commitment of

some sort. For example, a common man as an investment will perceive buying

a new house or a new car. But these are in very general or extended sense of

word as neither there is any rate of return involved or any financial return or

capital growth is expected.

Page 20
3. Financial investment means an exchange of financial claims such as

securities, real estate mortgages etc. Investors to differentiate between the

pseudo-investment concept of the consumer and the real investment of the

businessman often use the term financial investments. For example, there is a

difference between an investment in a ticket on a horse and a construction of a

new plant or between pawning of a watch and planting of a field of corn. Here,

investment in a ticket on a horse or pawning of a watch is instances of pseudo-

investment whereas construction of a new plant or a field of corn is the cases

of real investments. Some investments are simply transactions among people

while others involve nature. The latter are “real” investments; the former are

“financial” investments.

WHY IS INVESTMENT IMPORTANT

Why is investment important or why do people invest? The simple answer to this

question is to ‘make money’. This can be explained by following story.

Donald and Mildred Other of New York lived quiet, unpretentious lives. Donald, who

died in 1995, was a professor of chemical engineering at Brooklyn Polytechnic

University. Mildred, a former teacher, died in 1998. When they died, they both were

in there nineties. What came, as a shock to friends was that the others left a combined

estate worth about $800 million, the bulk of which was left to a variety of non-profit

organizations. How did they accumulate such an impressive amount of wealth?

Page 21
Simply put, the Othmers, like many other Americans, got rich by investing their money

sensibly, leaving it invested for a long period, and living modestly. In the early 1960s,

the Othmers turned over their life savings, then fifty thousand dollars, to famed

investor Warren Buffeti, an old family friend. In the early 1970s, the Othmers

received shares of Buffets new company; Berksheie Hathaway invests in other

companies such as American Express, Coca-Cola and Gillette. When the Othmers

received their Berkshire shares, the price was $42 per share; at the time of Mildred’s

death the price has risen to $77,000 per share. Although, the Othmers were smart, or

perhaps just lucky to pick Buffet to manage their money, a similar investment, made at

the same time, in the overall stock market would have grown to more than $100

million by the middle of 1998.

To be more precise, people invest to improve their welfare or to increase their

monetary wealth, both current and future. By holding cash you forego the opportunity

to earn the rate on that cash. Investors are, usually, interested only in monetary

benefits to be obtained from investors. By foregoing consumption today and invest in

the savings, Investors expect to enhance their future consumption possibilities by

increasing their wealth. Investors also seek to manage their wealth effectively,

obtaining the most from it while protecting it from inflation, taxes and other factors.

To accomplish both the objectives, people invest. People also invest in order to meet

personal goals such as buying a home or providing better education to children.

As far as a firm is concerned, investment provides not only the most important

decision, which an investor (business proprietor) has to make, but also with one of the

toughest. The decision will affect the operating environment of the firm throughout

Page 22
the entire life of the investment. The quality of such decisions will largely determine

the future prosperity and health of the firm.

Investment generates by increasing capital per worker and is itself stimulated by

growth, as rapid growth produces buoyant expectations in a self- sustaining process.

However, it must be noted that investment alone, does not guarantee economic or

social growth. Profitable opportunities must be identified and exploited.

From the foregoing discussion, it can be concluded that investment is both important

and useful in the context of present day situations due to the following set of factors:

1. Longer Life Expectancy

Investment decisions are important today because people living longer. Life

expectancies are rising in most countries, both developed and developing. A 65 Yr.

old in sound health can be expected to live for at least another twenty years. The main

effect of longer life expectancies is an increase in the duration of a person’s average

retirement period. Thus, they will need more money when they retire accumulating

funds for retirement is one major reason why people invest. Further, the increasing

cost of health care will require setting aside greater reserves in order to maintain same

standard of living. Therefore, earnings from employment should be calculated in such

a manner that a portion should be put away as savings. Savings by themselves do not

increase do not increase wealth, but must be invested in such a way that the principal

and the return will be adequate enough for a longer retirement period. In other words,

Page 23
the investment decision made during one’s working life will be responsible for a

financially secured retirement.

2. Growth in Personal Income

Investment results in general increase in the employment opportunities, which gave,

rise to both male and female workforce. However, one should not merely rely on

increasing personal income to improve one’s future standard of living. The key to

improving a future standard of living is careful investment.

3. Changing Labor Market

Now a days, the old ideal of working in a company and being there until retirement is

an exception. Even IBM, which once had a reputation of virtually guaranteeing

lifetime employment, has reduced its workforce by more than 100,000 in the past few

years. People will have to rely more on their own resources and less on corporate

paternalism to meet their financial goals. Everyone should accumulate a larger

cushion of resources to survive an unexpected fall because you never know when

your employer is going to downsize your job out of existence.

4. Increasing Rates of Taxation

Increasing Rates of Taxation introduces an element of compulsion in a person’s

savings. These are various forms of saving outlets in the form of investments that help

in bringing down the tax-rates. For example, investments in UTI certificates, LIC,

NSC, Post –office Cumulative Deposit Schemes etc. Hence, besides safety of

principal and high rates of interest, an investor should always bear in mind the

Page 24
taxation angle. An investment should such that the interest earned is compensated by

an increase in tax rates.

5. Inflation

Inflation has become a continuous problem since the last two decades. High rates of

inflation bring a relatively rapid decline in purchasing power. Thus, in an inflationary

environment, the purchasing power of cash diminishes. This results in fall of standard

of living and many other problems. An investor should search an outlet, which gives

him a high rate of return in the form of interest to cover any decrease due to inflation.

OBJECTIVES OF INVESTMENT

Investment is the sacrifice of certain present value for uncertain future reward. All

investment choices are made at points of time in accordance with the personal

investment ends and in contemplation of an uncertain future. Since investments in

securities are revocable, investment ends are transient and the investment

environment is fluid. As one conceives of the distant future, the reliable bases for

reasoned expectations become more and more vague. Investors in securities should,

therefore, reappraise and re-evaluate their various investment commitments from time

to time, in the light of new information and changed expectations.

Page 25
Investment helps in arriving at numerous decisions that are not only continuous but

rational too. Investment decisions are found to be the outcome of three different but

related classes of factors:

1. Informational or Factual premises:

The investor is provided with many streams of data that are taken together and

represent the observable environment as well as the features of the securities

and firms in which he may invest.

2. Expectational Premises:

Various environmental and financial facts are made available to the investors

that spark a light of expectations relating to the outcomes of alternative

investments though they are subjective and hypothetical. This not only limits

the range of investments, which may be undertaken but also the expectations

of outcomes that may legitimately be entertained.

3. Valuational Premises:

These comprise the structure of subjective preferences for the size and

consistency of the income to be received and for the safety and negotiability of

various investments as these are appraised from time to time.

1.6 SAVINGS AND INVESTMENT

Investment may be regarded as utilization of the savings of a country for further

creation of wealth. Investment plays a central role in the process of economic

development. The level of saving largely effects investment. All the people in an

Page 26
economy do not save for production. Their savings have to be mobilized for

productive purposes. Then only it will lead to capital formation, which is the very

core of economic growth. Saving is the excess of income over consumption. Thus,

something out of current consumption is kept aside for the creation of capital or

wealth. Investment is the process of applying such saving to the creation of specific

forms of capital.

SAVINGS INVESTMENT CAPITAL FORMATION

For example, if a person having a deposit of Rs. 1 crore in his bank account, devotes

himself to the construction of a power house, and thereafter sells the power so

generated, he has used his one crore rupees in the creation of capital, and that capital

yields services in the form of “power”, which can be sold and reconverted into

“money”. This process may be described as “investment”. In developing countries

like India where the process of economic development is quiet slow, it is very

necessary to step up the rate of investment so that the country accumulates a large

capital stock to accelerate production. As compared to other countries, the rate of

saving and investment in India are extremely low. Saving and investment are two

independent activities. With the increase in one, the other is also increased.

5. Portfolio construction and execution

After securities have been evaluated, the next step is construction and

execution of the portfolio. This is the phase that is concerned with the

implementation of portfolio strategy. This involves identification of the

specific assets in which the investor should invest and determination of the

proportions of investors wealth to be invested in each of the assets. An

Page 27
investor makes two types of decisions while constructing portfolios – the asset

allocation decision and the security selection decision. The asset allocation

decision is the choice among broad asset classes, while the security selection

decision is the choice of particular securities to be held within each asset

classes. Accordingly there are two approaches to portfolio construction – top

down and bottom up. Top down portfolio construction starts with asset

allocation and only after that, the investor decides on the particular securities

to be held. On the other hand, in the bottom up approach, the portfolio is

constructed from the securities that appear to be attractively priced without

concerning about asset allocation. Thus, the main features of portfolio

construction and execution are – determination of diversification level,

consideration of investment timing, selection of investment assets and

allocation of invest-able wealth to investment assets.

6. Portfolio Revision

Having built a portfolio, an investor must consider when and how to

revise it. Portfolio revision involves the periodic repetition of the above steps.

The investment objectives of an investor may change over time and the current

portfolio may no longer be optimal for him. So the investor may form a new

portfolio by selling certain securities and purchasing others that are not held in

the current portfolio. Moreover, the value of a portfolio as well as its

composition (i.e. the relative proportions of stock and bond components) may

change over time as stocks and bonds tend to fluctuate. As a result, some

securities that were not attractive initially may become attractive and vice-

versa. In response to such changes, the investors may like to revise and

rebalance his existing portfolio.

7. Performance Evaluation

Page 29
The final step in the investment process is the performance evaluation

of the portfolio. Investments are always made under conditions of uncertainty

and it is necessary to evaluate periodically how the investment (portfolio)

performed so that, if necessary, the investor may consider switching over to

alternate proposals. The performance of evaluation of a portfolio is done in

terms of risk and return. The key issue is whether the portfolio return is

commensurate with its risk exposure. This may provide useful feedback to

improve the quality of the portfolio management process.

HISTORY

Sharekhan is one of the leading retail brokerage of SSKI Group which was running
successfully since 1922 in the country. The SSKI Group was founded by four brothers

2.4 CURRENT SALES, PRODUCT MIX

VaR is a technique used to estimate the probability of loss of value of an asset or group
of assets (for example a commodity or a portfolio of a few commodities), based on the
statistical analysis of historical price trends and volatilities. A VaR statistic has three
components: a time period, a confidence level and a loss amount (or loss percentage).
VaR Margin is at the heart of margining system for the cash market segment. VaR
margin is collected on upfront basis. In that respect, it is similar to the margin we have
seen in our example under question 1 while placing the order.
Let us try and understand briefly what we mean by ‘VaR’. The most popular and
traditional measure of uncertainty / risk is Volatility, which we have understood earlier.
While historical volatility tells us how the security price moved in the past, VaR answers
the question, “How much is it likely to move over next one day?" VaR is a technique
used to estimate the probability of loss of value of an asset or group of assets (for
example a share or a portfolio of a few shares), based on the statistical analysis of
historical price trends and volatilities. A VaR statistic has three components: a time
period, a confidence level and a loss amount (or loss percentage). Keep these three parts
in mind and identify them in the following example:

Page 31
With 99% confidence, what is the maximum value that an asset or portfolio may loose
over the next day?
You can see how the "VaR question" has three elements: a relatively high level of
confidence (99%), a time period (a day) and an estimate of loss (expressed either in
rupees or percentage terms). The actual calculation of VaR is beyond the scope of this
project.
VaR is computed using exponentially weighted moving average (EWMA) methodology.
Based on statistical analysis, 94% weight is given to volatility on ‘T-1’ day and 6%
weight is given to ‘T’ day returns.
To compute volatility for January 1, 2008, first we need to compute day’s return for Jan
1, 2008 by using LN (close price on Jan 1, 2008 / close price on Dec 31, 2007).
Take volatility computed as on December 31, 2007.
Use the following formula to calculate volatility for January 1, 2008:
Square root of [0.94*(Dec 31, 2007 volatility)*(Dec 31, 2007 volatility) + 0.06*(January
1, 2008 LN return)*(January 1, 2008 LN return)]
Volatility on December 31, 2007 = 0.0314
Closing price on December 31, 2007 = Rs. 360
Closing price on January 1, 2008 = Rs. 330
January 1, 2008 volatility =
Square root of [(0.94*(0.0314)*(0.0314) + 0.06 (0.08701)* (0.08701)]
= 0.037 or 3.7%

The Extreme Loss Margin aims at covering the losses that could occur outside the
coverage of VaR margins. The Extreme loss margin for any commodity is higher of 1.5
times the standard deviation of daily LN returns of the commodity price in the last six
months or 5% of the value of the position. This margin rate is fixed at the beginning of
every month, by taking the price data on a rolling basis for the past six months.

The VaRmargin rate for shares was 13%. Suppose that standard deviation of daily LN
returns of the security is 3.1%. 1.5 times standard deviation would be 1.5 x 3.1 = 4.65.
Then 5% (which is higher than 4.65%) will be taken as the Extreme Loss margin rate.
Therefore, the total margin on the security would be 18% (13% VaR Margin + 5%
Extreme Loss Margin). As such, total margin payable (VaR margin + extreme loss
margin) on a trade of Rs.10 lakhs would be 1, 80,000/-

Page 32
MTM is calculated at the end of the day on all open positions by comparing transaction
price with the closing price of the share for the day.
MTM Profit/Loss = [(Total Buy Qty X Close price) – Total Buy Value] - [Total Sale
Value - (Total Sale Qty X Close price)]

Example: If an investor owns 100 shares of a stock purchased for $40 per share, and that
stock now trades at $60, the "mark-to-market" value of the shares is equal to (100 shares
× $60), or $6,000, whereas the Book value might (depending on the accounting
principles used) only equal $4,000. : - Similarly, if the stock falls to $30, the mark-to-
market value is $3,000 and the investor has lost $1,000 of the original investment. If the
stock was purchased on margin, this might trigger a margin call and the investor would
have to come up with an amount sufficient to meet the margin requirements for his
account

Page 34
Building and maintaining your ideal portfolio demands objective, dependable
information. Share khan Equity Analysis helps satisfy that need by rating stocks based
on carefully selected, fact-based measures. And because we're not focused on investment
banking, we don't have the same conflicts of interest as traditional brokerage firms. This
objectivity is only one important difference in our ratings.
 Type of categories-
Evergreen:- These stocks are steady compound, churning out steady growth rates year
on year. They are typically significant players in their markets, with sound strategies that
will help them achieve and sustain market dominance in the long run. They have strong
brands, management credentials and a consistent track record of achieving super normal
shareholder returns. We expect stocks in this category to compound at between 18-20%
per annum for the next five to ten years.
Apple Green:- These are stocks that have the potential to be steady compound and are
attempting to move upwards, to turn Evergreen. They rank a shade below the Evergreen
companies, only because their potential in the five to ten years' time is still not very
clear, although they might grow at rates faster than that of the Evergreen stocks in the
next year or two. They could grow at 25-30% per annum over the next two to three
years.
Emerging Star:- These are typically young companies, often in niche businesses, that
have the potential to grow and dominant their niches. Even better, they might turn out to
be real giants, if their niches explode into full-blown markets in their own rights. These
stocks are potential ten-baggers but you need to be patient.
Ugly Duckling:- These are companies that are trading below their fair value or at values
which are at a significant discount to that of their peer group, due to a combination of
circumstances. But things are now starting to happen in these companies or in their
markets that are likely to cause a re-evaluation of their prospects. These stocks could
double in two to three years' time.
Vulture's Pick:-These are companies with valuable assets or brands that have been
trashed to ridiculously low prices. Buy a Vulture's Pick and wait for a predator who finds
its assets undervalued to come along. This could be a long wait but the returns could be
startlingly high.
Cannonball:- These are companies with valuable assets or brands that have been trashed
to ridiculously low prices. Buy a Vulture's Pick and wait for a predator who finds its

Page 35
assets undervalued to come along. This could be a long wait but the returns could be
startlingly high.

 India’s most preferred brokers within 5 years. “CNBC Awaaz customers Award
2005”.

STRATEGY:
The main strategies used in our training were as follow.

DATA CALLING

In data calling we were provided data of mobile numbers and our job was to
generate appointments. After that we were required to convert that
appointment into closure. Apart from given data we also brought latest
business directory. We called to different business people and tried to generate
appointments.

CALLED CALLING

Called calling means to go at different corporate houses and to meet different


People and to get their visiting card by it we get lead and our immediate task
Was to call them & to fix appointment.

REFERENCE

Another important strategy was to use our reference means our family, friends,
relatives etc. In marketing or selling we can never neglect references & they
always play a major role.

STALL ACTIVITY:-
Stall activity means to
make stall at public place. Then

Page 50
our job was to give them a
newspaper with brochures and
to take their name and contact
number. So it was another
process of generating lead.
After that our job was to follow
up and try for appointment and

FINDINGS AND INFERENCES

Aggressive Promotions: India Infoline Securities compared to its competitors


concentrates less on advertising and promotions, especially through electronic media. Its
competitors like Sharekhan, ICICI and Kotak are advertising aggressively through media.
Hence India Infoline should concentrate more on advertising through print and electronic
media.

Tapping Rural Market: The Indian rural investors market are relatively untapped, with
only small and private firms meeting the current demand. India Infoline Securities can
gain the “First Mover Advantage” over its competitors, especially in areas were
commercial crops are grown and the standard of living is high. These people do not have
much option to invest other than banks and post offices.

Reduce the initial account opening charges: The charge for opening a trading and
demat account in India Infoline securities is high compared to its competitors. This
influences the potential investors to open their account with another company which
provides the same at lower prices. Thus it acts as a mental barrier for potential customers,
who tend to overlook all other benefits offered by India Infoline . Hence India Infoline
should consider reducing their account opening charges.

Bring in more product differentiation: Product differentiation here means that India
Infoline securities should bring in more customized services and more value proposition
for large investors. It can reduce the brokerage charges for large investors which will
encourage them to invest more in the company.

Invest more on R&D: India Infoline should concentrate on its research and
development since most of its competitors are investing on R&D. This will help the
company to read the market better and will also be in a better position to understand the
needs of the customers. This can be extremely beneficial for India Infoline in the long
run.
LIMITATIONS
Many constraints were involved in doing this study. Some of them are as follows.
 The most significant limitation has been the individuals involved in this study
were very busy and did not spare much time in discussion.
 The sample size selected for the survey was too small as compared to large
population.
 The project was carried out only in the Delhi, so findings on data gathered can be
best true for Delhi only and not applicable to other parts of state and country.
Indian stock market is a market where sentiments play a major role in price; hence 100%
accurate predictions cannot be made about its future path
