Topic: Prof Mankekar and his Multibagger Portfolio
Posted By: basant
Subject: Prof Mankekar and his Multibagger Portfolio
Date Posted: 25/Jul/2007 at 12:28pm
Prof Mankekar and his Multibagger Portfolio
 
 
Prof. Mankekar and his family have made some of the biggest multibaggers of the Great Indian bull run. http://www.theequitydesk.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=135 - (100 times) and http://www.theequitydesk.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=224 - (50 times) are amongst his best known bets.

 

The Prof. is media shy (so much so that I could not find his photograph on google) does not want to be in the public domain and like some of the smartest minds in the Indian markets loves to think and act in isolation. He does not come on chat shows, does not provide opinion on Tv but still teaches at the Jamunalal Bajaj Institute in Mumbai.

 

I tried making a list of his portfolio from the stocks that he owns and are disclosed in the public domain. Please note that these are the stocks which are in the public domain and it should be assumed that the actuals might differ because certain purchases would not have been disclosed or if disclosed would have inadvertently been omitted. But this portfolio does give a broad idea of his investing styles and habits.

 

Company CMP Shares Value % of 
 Rs crores portfolio
Pantaloon Retail (India) Ltd. 520 2154480 112.03 32.56
India Infoline Ltd. 820 994235 81.53 23.69
TV18 890 568504 50.60 14.70
NIIT 985 220000 21.67 6.30
Balaji Telefilms 270 660000 17.82 5.18
Zee News 71 2400000 17.04 4.95
Asian Electronics 1100 150000 16.50 4.80
Champagne Indage Ltd. 628 221420 13.91 4.04
Radico Khaitan 177 541000 9.58 2.78
Galaxy Entertainment Corpn. Ltd. 115 297302 3.42 0.99
Total value of portfolio (Rs crores) 344.09

Piquant observations:

  • Just like http://www.theequitydesk.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=936&FID=37&PR=3 - Rakesh Jhunjhunwala   the Prof believes in the http://www.theequitydesk.com/diversification.asp - . His top 3 holdings account for close to 70% of his portfolio and he holds only 10 stocks in his disclosed portfolio.
  • It is very hard to find a cyclical or commodity stock in his portfolio.
  • All the stocks that he bought were at the time of buying a small cap. Just that the sheer pace of growth made it into a large cap is another thing. Maybe the Prof believes that money can be made in http://www.theequitydesk.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=113 - .
  • With respect to Pantaloon the Professor expects it to become a Rs 100,000 crores market cap company He likes buying stocks with a huge http://www.theequitydesk.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=259 -
  • We do cover companies with huge scale of opportunity in  http://www.theequitydesk.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=833 - section.
  • These shares are held by the Mankekar family and form a part of their disclosed portfolio. They could be holding more shares through companies, trusts, proprietary accounts which are not in the public domain.
  • To know more about investing legends see the section http://www.theequitydesk.com/globe_troting_macro_players.asp%5dWorlds%20greatest%20Investors%5b/URL%5d - http://www.theequitydesk.com/globe_troting_macro_players.asp - Over the past few months the Professor is  buying into Tv18, Balaji Telefilms, Zee News and Asian Electronics. His recent buys into the media shares reflect his new found conviction for the broadcasting sector.
  • His portfolio does see some churn but not before he has made a multibagger out of his stocks. Stocks that he has either reduced exposure or exited include http://www.theequitydesk.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=224 - , Astra Microwave Rishi laser (suffered a loss here) Pantaloon Industries etc.

Thanks Basantjee for this info,

I always wondered why people like Prof and (even RD) were interested in Astra as there is no chance of scale , also some investments from RJ in Vadilal or Hawkins alsways surprised me.
 
Any specific info on Galaxy entertainment - I guess it runs the Bowling? But did it not belong to Pantaloon?

Initially they leverage themselves. Leveraging is easy in the initial days because you have nothing to use and afterwards you become smarter. Otherwise it takes Rs 10 lacs to become Rs 10 crores in 10 years at an almost impossible 60% CAGR.
 
RJ used to speculate and made the biggest money by shorting the markets in 1992 when the harshad mehta scam broke open.

Just 9 stocks is fabulous! Retail,Financial Services,Media and Alternative Energy are his bets.We need to do some research on Radico bcoz Rel MF has been bullish on this counter since long.

Sometimes I feel that TV18 is also a good play on the financial services and combines very well with a media play. Cannot think of the financial services exploding without any increase in TV18's viewership.

Yes you are right!
 
And it is sort of recession-proof. Even when Market tanks heavily, more & more people would sit glued to TV sets .
 
I have heard from others that the response to Awaaz channel in Hindi speaking States & cities like Nagpur is quite huge!

So while people stop trading becausee of margin calls etc they would still watch TV for a while just to see what is happening. I beileve over the last one year they have added about 55% in terms of total viewership which went up to 50 million from 30 million the year before.

Kulmanji,
  It is not recession proof.. When market tanks heavily(in a bull market) more ppl will watch it. Just the day it tabnks and couple of following days...

But on even a quater  of bearish sentiment, like May 06 to Sep 06.. the viewership dips..

TV18's viewership is proportional to retail market involvement, volume etc... 

I believe we can deduce parallels from MSNBC, CNBC and all other business channels in US - comparison of their viewship in bull runs and bear runs.. It shows this trend explained above.

Often we forget there's a company behind every stock,and there's only one reason why stocks go up. Companies go from doing poorly to doing well or small companies grow to large companies.

Oh really? I wasn't sure of this.
 
Let's see how it happens here as we haven't had a savage correction/bear phase for quite a while.

TV-18's e-broking venture too must be kept in mind with Ambit Capital, whenever it comes up. Plus, Media Process Outsourcing.
 
"These two triggers could be especially on Mankekar's mind": Would this be a fair point to make, or am I being overoptimistic on these two.

Raghav says that ebroking could become as big as IBulls or Indiainfoline so that statement should not be too optimistic about this MPO I am not so bullish on these things because:
 
a) Dollar rupee
b) Lack of entry barriers. NDTv does it so the concept of durable competitive advantage does not stand.
c) These are not high PE businesses like media.
 
But surely they would add value so to that extent it is helpful.

This is my first post on this forum. One of my close friends personally know Mankekar, during his studies in JBIMS. On his word, I had bought Astra Microwave. Though I was not so convinced of it myself, I went by on his instincts as I was a novice then. I have come  to regret it. :-)

Prof. Mankekar Held Nectar Lifescience in past. Anybody knows if he currently holds that position? Company looks intresting...
 
Original business of Asian Electronics was very interesting. They made deals with electricity boards. They leased them packs of capacitors. That pack was improving load factor and money saving by boards were much more than lease amount and scalability was huge. But those bancrupt SEBs didn't pay them. Few years back stock went to 15 before they entered into new businesses.

Very interesting thread Basantji. I have read a few times about him.
Any idea about the approx range of his entry levels into each of these stocks? I think in NW18 he has been buying above 600 levels, isnt it?

warren buffet would not have been richest man if he had just invested his own money....he started limited partenerships with his friends and like minded people...he managed his own and their wealth....he bought insurance company with the money...and used the money kept by insurance company to buy stocks...insurance company's money was free since it had to pay back the money to policy holders after a long gestation period and till then buffet used it and managed it well to reach the pinnacle

Just reading though what Bill Gates says on TV & Internet coming together and revolutionizing in next 5 yrs....

I am just visioning something like this..

I have a Dish in US and for Pay-Per-View movies/sports there is a prompt on the screen which says 'Press Select to Buy' and once you do that then the channel shows up and they automatically update your account. This all through just the Dish set box and TV - A phone line has to be connected to the set box. So online transactions are possible with just TV...

Today you watch some analysts talking up a stock in CNBCTv18 and the stock ticker shows 1% up and by the time they are almost half through talking up the stock the stock hits the upper circuit... Likewise on results updates having a Buy/sell based on result...

If only the TV shows a feature to 'Buy this Stock xyz now' feature.. I bet there will be many Mungeri fastest finger first ... Of course you are buying/selling these stocks through the Business Channel's Brokerage Wink..

Imagine such a world ! I just think it may not be very far off.. Just such transactions will come with quick adult lock kind of 4 digit password.. So just couple of clicks one can sell/buy stocks..

Good for us !

Technology wise it is possible.. Just an extension of existing technologies..
If one can buy channels, pay-per-view events with click of a button and account gets updated immediately..the transaction medium is in place..only some innovative business leader should see right through it..

With Set Boxes and IP-TVs TV is no longer mass transmission.... it is more becoming personally identifiable like a cell phone/laptop..

I believe it is only a matter of time..

Seriously speaking should I forward it to the management at TV18 for their brainstorming and if they think that it is possible they could implement it?

By all means Basant ji !

With technology available it is feasible... Business wise also it makes sense..May be SEBI/legal angles need to be analyzed..
But other than that ...I cannot think of a reason why TV18 should not consider this idea...

Wonderful. Is it possible practically if so is IP-TV the link in this chain. You have really come up with a briliant idea!
 
 
Pieces of the chain to buy/sell while watching CNBC:
 
Business Channel: CNBC
E-broking facility: TV18-Ambit(in Future)
Connectivity: IPTV
 
TV18 already has the stuff needed. IPTV can do just about anything that any software can, really personalize everything from surfing on NET to watching movies or business channels all-in-one!! Good idea Vivek jee.

Brillant Observation. Have been myself tracking this person for a long time. Great to see a detailed note on him and on his portfolio. Amazing work. Hope to see regular updates.
Infact, a few weeks back at around 42 Rs. (ZEE News) had noticed that MR.SM had bought into this one. Was difficult to understand why but after the Q1 results the entire scenario has changed.

It does not require luck to keep the money though anyone who has been lucky in this market has been unlucky just after the money has been made.

a lot of people win 1 crore lottery or many have won in KBC or other such programs or many have insider info to speculate..how many of them are as rich as RJ....how many of em are followed by people ??....how many of em are amongst richest indians??....it takes vision and a purpose to be where rj is today....how much he wud have made by shorting the market...he started with 20000 or so bucks way back then... make that 50 times (suppose he invested it initially and made a 520 bagger)...10 lacs...he speculated with 10 lacs ...made 40 times ...4 crores.... he s worth 1000 crores today...still multiplied that money by more than 250 times....its not that easy.....buffet made money in a more investor friendly mkt...its not easy to invest in indian mkts and still be among the richest men in india.....even if george bush sneezes sensex sheds a few points
 
why cant we appreciate our heroes?
 
he actually started with 10000 in 1985...before shorting acc how much he wud have made of those 10000 ... ???
 
Rakesh Jhunjhunwala started with a meagre Rs 10,000 somewhere in 1985 and with some trading profit was on a leverage capital of Rs 10 lacs in a few months now if you compound that Rs 10 lacs at 57% for 22 years, You do get to the figure of Rs 2250 crores. Rakesh Jhunjhunwala is one example of compounding.

    RJ is way up there with the other legends.Warren Buffet as almost everyone admits is a class apart.
    For me some philosophical thoughts abot investing  from RJ(in some CNBC interview)was outstanding.He said that just because he has been so successful does not guarantee continued success.This true humility  reflects in his buy-and-hold strategy.Combining investing with speculation so successfully does require  magical brain power.

I fully agree with this view. And most importantly RJ has been through most turbulent times, large Scams in markets. He is a true Wizard, a superman.

RJ is my inspiration, only doesnt understand  his investment decisions (due to inadequate knowledge and experience) in some of the companies such as Vadilal/Hawkins and there are many more.
Neverthless, it is also important to knowthat  he made money in comapnies which were not popular when he start investing in them and invested in when they were small caps.

In GOD we all believe but in money we believe ourself only.
Making portfolio by reading research reports is like walking on a busy street with close eyes.
RJ, RD, WB are not charity people. They are here & everywhere just for one single reason & that is money. They never cheat becoz cheating is the only game there but when they exit we feel cheated. It is only us to blame as we never understood the game at first place.
When RJ says Praj is this, that...we all know the game. When RD says Hitachi is this, that....we all know the game. When I say YES Bank is this, that....you all know the game.Wink

To take a quote from Ramesh Damani's chats...There is only one Don Bradman, just like there is only one Warren Buffett.

But that doesn't mean the investing world won't throw up such greats like Viv Richards or Sachin Tendulkar or Ricky Ponting.

Very interesting thread.

unfortunately we do not know a lot about Professor Mannekar. He seems to be a fish of deep waters. Professor is knowledgable and practical. There must be many more unsung heroes like professor. But they are our ideals and inspiration. They help us in setting us our goals and helps us in building our confidence to achieve the difficult target.

Thanx Basant to start this thread.

Uday Kotak on Shivanand Mankekar
 
I must mention that one of the very important influences in my life was Shivanand Mankekar who was our professor in the MBA course. I used to go with him to the stock market almost every day, it was a great learning experience.
 
I remember the first lecture of Prof.Mankekar. He asked,"How do you value a company?" Someone said by net profit, somebody else said by assets. He said,"All wrong.You value a company on its cash flow."

Yes, DB International seems to be very bullish on the Indian liquor industry.

This is some of their block deal purchases yesterday:

55 lac shares of UB Holdings at 940.
44 lac shares of United Spirits at 1651
8.7 lac shares of Mcdowell holding at 204
12 lac shares of United Breweries at 350
36 lac shares of Radico Khaitan at 180
102 lac shares of Champagne Indage 685.

Anything that is available to the niche upper-class market, will one day come trickling down to the masses too. It happened in computers and mobile phones and wine industry should be no different I feel, especially with the growing affluence of the Indian middle-class.

I hope these guys are not drunk.On a serious note DB is the most conservative of all brokerages and I always learn a thing or two about fundamental analysis from their reports.
 
Their sell call on YES Bank (let us put the recommendation aside) was brilliantly explained but that they took wrong number sfor calculation of NIM and RoA is another matter altogether.

From the lastest holdings on the BSE site I cannot see the Professor's name in the TV18 shareholders list holding more 1% of equity.Tv18 did  some dilution so has his stake gone below 1% or he has completely exited is something that we cannot know for sure.

Prof. Mankekar truly is an enigma. I wish someone could enlighten us a bit more about him and his perspective on investing. Would be a great learning i'm sure.
 
Also could someone please tell me how a professor from a management college could accumalate a portfolio north of 500 crores!! Exactly how much do professors get paid these days?? Smile

Good point but he must have started with Rs 10 lacs and then compoounded it over 30 years at a steady rate of return so that should no be an issue.

In fact his investments in PRIL went up 80 times in 5 years so he did not have this kind of money to start with.

EXACTLY! No wonder then that Apple users worldover are the most fiercest lot, in terms of quality/performance expectancy and their loyalty to Apple. APPLE is one of the top 10, maybe even top 5 brands of the world. It brings out so much passion among every Apple follower, it is somewhat freaky!
 
But then...APPLE deserves it bcoz it delivers on every count. It has the fastest, sleekest, most sylish and best performing computers in the world. Windows looks like a KID in front of Apple's hardware and software. In fact many of the Microsoft Vista's features are a direct copy of what Apple's Macintosh has had for several years.

By the way, congratulations to basantji and all the other contributors of this thread. It's still very very early days but it seems you may have spotted a probable multibagger before the good professor did!

Steve Jobs is the man .Bill gates cannot be comapred to him.
When you talk of creativity Steve outsmarts everyone .Microsoft copies it .I think there are many videos of steve jobs on you tube .He is a perfect inspiration for people who want to make it big .

I saw few interviews of Steve. Somehow I found him little arrogant and a very very head strong guy and a hardcore technocrat. On the contrary Bill is a sober and intelligent business man. He copy all from others, but see what an empire he created. I wonder what would have happened if Bill would have been there on top of Apple instead of Steve??

Steve is an artist/visionary  par excellence  on various levels and all artists have some kind of ego. You rightly pointed out...Bill Gates is a good copycat & businessmen.
 
In fact, Steve has a cult following largely due to this persona of his.
 
Actually we need Bill jee and Steve jee both, to take the computer world full throttle! But have no doubts, Steve would be the man who lays the vision!

I think that as a marketing type manager, Steve would like to keep his image this way and make it seem like every product was invented by him, but we all know thats not the case . What Steve does is great marketing nothing more nothing less..

Not taking away where credit is due, but I am tired of people crediting him with something he hasnt achieved..

And what has he been credited with, that he does not deserve? What you wrote is true for Bill Gates much more than Steve Jobs.

He has been credited with making all the Apple products... which is NOT true..

Now, I have nothing against Steve Jobs. I think that he is a great businessman and one of the best marketing manager in the world.. but he is NOT innovator of all these produts..

I agree that what I said is also true for Bill Gates, but you see when people comare Billy G with Steve they always say how Steve has invented all these products while Bill copies him and others..See, in tech industry everyone copies everyone otherwise there wont be any great products..

I am sure almost no one credits him with having invented the products, but yes he has been a large visionary behind most of them. Comparing BG and SJ would be a sin. I would recommend you to go deeply thru Apple's and Microsoft's history(if you you haven't).
 
Anyhow, I respect your opinion and you have all the right to your opinion and let's just leave it @that.
