What does the Portfolio tell us about the Investment Strategy?

There are multiple things stock-picking can tell us about the investment style. Based on the stock picks of Dilipkumar Lekhi we can observe that this ace investors investment strategy includes avoiding popular segments like banks, automobiles, and pharma. Instead, he prefers investing in the least competitive segments, and relies on reversals and contra calls.

The portfolio does not show any sort of inclination towards the companies ranging from the Pharma, Private Banks or Automobile sector, unlike the portfolio of many other top investors like Rakesh Jhunjhunwala. However, Dilipkumar Lakhi likes to invest into the less popular sectors like media sector, printing ink and paper sector, while also investing into cyclical sectors such as steel.

There are two real estate companies in his portfolio, including the heavily beaten down Unitech stock. This is an excellent example of Contra call and an investment in a beaten down stock.
