Stocks where Vijay Kedia added to the holdings

Let us look at the fresh addition of stocks to his portfolio in the Sep-21 quarter. There have been no significant new additions made by Vijay Kedia during the Sep-21 quarter. While there may have been some minor additions, only additions taking the stake to above 1% of the company get reported and there have been no such specific cases in the quarter.

There were also no significant accretions to the stock holdings during the quarter, although there have been some minor additions in certain stocks. In the case of Mahindra Holidays, the number of shares have gone up by 50% while the percentage holding remains the same. That is because of the effect of the 1:2 bonus issue effected in the quarter, which is largely value neutral to the shareholders.

What stocks did Vijay Kedia downsize in his portfolio?

There were a number of stocks in which Vijay Kedia has used higher levels to reduce his stake marginally like Vaibhav Global and Elecon Engineering. In terms of significant reductions, there were 3 stake reductions worth noting.

a) Despite being a small stake overall in value terms, Vijay Kedia did reduce his stake in Lykis Ltd by 70 bps from 10% to 9.3%.

b) His holdings in Cheviot Company used to be 1.3% till the June quarter and the fact it is not reported in this quarter shows it has fallen below the 1% reporting threshold.

c) A significant stake reduction was Tejas Networks where the stake has come down by 200 bps from 5.4% to 3.4%. As a result, Tejas has dropped to being the second largest holding in his portfolio after Vaibhav Global.

All the above reductions in stake happened during the Sep-21 quarter.

Vijay Kedia Portfolio Performance in retrospect

In a way, Vijay Kedia’s portfolio came a full circle between 2015 and 2020 and despite a sharp rally in 2017, the portfolio value came back to the 2015 levels by September 2020. Hence most of the returns that Vijay Kedia portfolio earned in the last 6 years has been predominantly driven in the last one year only. Let us look at this last one year show.

Between Sep-20 and Sep-21, the portfolio value of Vijay Kedia has gone up from Rs.229 crore to Rs.816 crore. That translates into annualized portfolio appreciation of 256%. It is perhaps a classic case of conviction and staying power in mid and small caps.
