* Sandeep J. Shah of Sampriti Capital had correctly forecast that Autos would lead the next bull market. He said this on 27th march 09 when the BSE Auto index was at a level of 3067. By 25th September 2010 it reached a level of 9507, an appreciation of 210% whereas the Sensex has appreciated just 100%..specific stocks he discussed like Tata Motors are up an astonishing 477 % 188 to 1070.Bullish at a time when most investors were selling auto stocks and valuations of auto stocks were trading at historical lows. He was confident that there would be a new bull market coming up and that auto would lead the way.He knew that the loss of 2300 crores that Tata Motors reported in FY09 would soon be a thing of the past and that markets are more concerned with change. And have things changed ! Tata Motors is now the darling stock of investors when it was a pariah in March 09. In a separate video he had forecast that markets would rally to 4000 levels when the nifty was 2500 in march 09.
Q: Any thoughts on Tata Motors at this price?
A: I think some of the Nano hoopla will get sucked out of the price in some time and some of the concerns may come back. But at a broad level if you look at the auto sector as a whole, autos have been leaders. It was the first sector to top out before the bear market began. It would need to be one of the sectors which would be one of the frontrunners in the new bull market because they are the ones that are beaten down the most, they are the interest-rate sensitives. I would remain positive on auto stocks.
Incredible Success in Market timing
Since September 2008 when he re-started appearing in the media (for which there is documented video footage), perhaps nobody else has identified most of the Market turning points as he has.
He has identified almost all the turning points in the market since he started re-appearing in the media including the September 2008 high, the October, November and even the December low, the December 08 rally, the February 09 top, March 09 bottom and the big rally after that as well the July & November 09 bottom. He had also predicted the reason for a pre election rally before the elections in March 09 itself. He had said way back in November 08 that the bear market is over and the market rally bears testimony to that view.
He also predicted the Jan 10 correction and even the reasons for the same! Not to forget that he had accurately forecast the market high for all of 2009!
He had identified the sovereign debt crises and highlighted other countries would follow Dubai way back in October 2009. Again in Jan 2010 he highlighted that 15 other countries were also at risk. In April 2000 he again forecast a market selloff and strongly advocated reducing portfolio risk
Some Sector/Stock Calls
He was bullish on commodity stocks and various stocks/sectors way before the rest of the market turned bullish on them in March 09. In mid-May 09 he advocated focusing on mid-caps, in the last 12 months though the market has pretty much done nothing, select midcaps are up 100-400%.
He was bearish on telecom stocks as way back in November 08 and those stocks have been the biggest underperformers in the market.
He gave a sell call on commodities which corrected 25% compared to a 10% correction in the market in April-May 10.
He had given a Buy call on the Dollar index around 74 levels at a time when the consensus was bearish; it rose all the way up to 88.
