How to use FII Portfolio Investment Tool
This tool is best suited for stock market investors who do not want to take the pain of doing fundamental and technical analysis, but want handsome returns. FII’s and FPI’s are generally a little ahead of the curve and, hence, it won't hurt a retail investor to take cues from their investment activity. FPI’s and FII’s are backed by strong analytical teams and their investment decisions are based on careful analysis of fundamental and technical parameters of the company. They take care of the hard part and investors just need to mimic their portfolio in a timely manner (i.e. buy the stock when FII buy and sell the stock when they sell). Now to achieve this, investors need to know what stocks FPI and FII’s are buying and selling on a daily basis. Here our “FII Portfolio Investments” tracking tools come handy. Using this tool, investors can track the stocks in which FII’s are most interested in by analysis what they are buying and selling on NSE and BSE on a daily basis. Please find below few steps which we have identified for you to maximise the output from this tool:
1. Identify the FPI or FII whose portfolio you want to mimic – The first step is to search and make a list of a few of the FII’s whose ability you trust in. You can do so by researching their website, reading news articles from Moneycontrol, Eonomic Times etc. There are basically two types of FII’s – one with a short term perspective and another with a long term perspective. Make a list based on your investing style. If you are looking for short term profit, go for FII’s with hot money and if you are a long term investor you should search for long only FII’s or FPI’s.
2. Track the stocks they are investing in – Once you have made the list of FII’s, use our tool to check which stocks FII’s are investing in. The best part is, you can track their investments on a daily basis and buy the stock very next day from the stock exchanges. There is no need to read through a lot of news articles and do a lot of research to find out who is buying what. Just one click and all the FII activity data for the day are available on the screen. To validate what you have found, you can also check if other FII’s have invested in the same stock or not.
3. Investment Decision – Once the list of FPI investments or FII investments is available, the last step is to take the buy or sell decision. Before taking the buying or selling decisions just ask yourself some basic questions like how the economy is doing, is the stock in question has a bright future ahead, is the management of the company good, is the stock market at peak etc. These questions are pure common sense questions and do not require more than five minutes to answer. Once you have the answer, you can go ahead with your buying and selling decision.
