Ashish Kacholias Winning Strategy


For Ashish Kacholia, stock market is a business of great integrity. Let us hear his words.

 “I have felt the company should always perform on a quarter-to-quarter basis, but I learnt to my great expense that life doesn’t work in a linear manner. I have sold-off some of my best stocks because they didn’t deliver for a quarter or two and this again is a part of the education that I have had.”


“One has to have patience, that good businesses and good managements give them some time to perform and over a period of time, I have felt that has been a better basis of investment, rather than working on strictly quarter-on-quarter performances. All companies can’t be Infosys.”


“I basically look at earnings momentum and a valuation in the 4,5,6,7 price earning multiple kind of range and I also look at the stock charts. So basically, once the stock breaks out a 52-week high and starts trading consistently above that, I get into that stock.”
