Is it the right time to increase exposure to hybrid funds?.

Is it the right time to increase exposure to hybrid funds?.
by 5paisa Research Team 05/10/2021

In the last three months, the asset under management (AUM) of funds dedicated to the Hybrid category has increased by 13%.

When the equity market is trading at a lofty valuation, most of the investors either book profit or do a rebalancing of their portfolio. Nevertheless, some investors do not disturb their existing investment or portfolio and invest the additional amount towards hybrid funds. These are the funds that invest in a mix of equity, debt and other commodities also such as gold.  In the last three months ending August 2021, asset under management (AUM) of funds dedicated to the Hybrid category has increased by 13%.

AUM of Hybrid Funds  










Conservative Hybrid Fund  





Balanced Hybrid Fund/Aggressive Hybrid Fund  





Dynamic Asset Allocation/Balanced Advantage Fund  





Multi Asset Allocation Fund  





Arbitrage Fund  





Equity Savings Fund  










Source: AMFI  





The highest increase in AUM in absolute terms was observed in the Dynamic Asset Allocation/Balanced Advantage Fund. They saw an increase of almost 19% in their AUM in the last three months. This is considered to be the best and most suited category in an uncertain market. As opposed to static allocation funds, the dynamic funding mechanism of the category helps the fund to be in a better position to exploit the opportunity.

Conservative Hybrid Fund also saw more than 19.3% growth in their AUM albeit at a lower base. These funds are suited for a conservative investor as they have major exposure to debt and lower exposure to equity.

Looking at the current market situation and different options available within the hybrid fund, investors may go for it. They can choose the right hybrid fund category depending upon their risk profile. These funds will help you to diversify your investment and also lower investment risk along with better portfolio management.

The benchmark index Nifty has witnessed follow up move after the formation of a Morning Star like candlestick pattern. Interestingly, the index has retraced more than 61.8% of its prior downward move which is started from all time high level of 17947.65 to the low of 17452.90 level.

Here are the top trading set-ups to watch out for Wednesday.

Ador Welding: The stock has formed a Gravestone Doji candlestick pattern as of July 16, 2021, and thereafter witnessed correction along with low volume. The correction is halted near the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of its prior upward move, and it coincides with its 13-week EMA level. On Tuesday, the stock has given a 31-days consolidation breakout on the daily chart. The volume was expanded by over 5 times of 50-days average volume, which indicates important buying interest. The 50-days average volume was 16145 while today the stock has registered a total volume of 83200. Interestingly, the daily RSI has also given a consolidation breakout, which is a bullish sign. The weekly RSI has given bullish crossover in the super bullish zone. Recently, the daily MACD line just crossed the signal line, and the histogram became green. On the daily timeframe, ADX is 12.20 and suggests that the trend is yet to be developed. Directional indicators continue in the ‘buy’ mode as +DI continues above –DI. Hence, we would advise the traders to be with a bullish bias. On the downside, the zone of Rs 665-Rs 680 is likely to act as crucial support for the stock. While on the upside, the level of Rs 782 may act as immediate resistance for the stock.

The length of the cup pattern was 10-weeks, and the depth of the pattern was about 26%. This breakout was supported by robust volume. Additionally, the stock had formed an opening bullish Marubozu candle on breakout day, which adds strength to it. The opening bullish Marubozu candle has no shadow extending from the open price end of the body. Opening bullish Marubozu candle indicates extreme bullishness. The momentum indicators and oscillators are also suggesting bullish momentum. The weekly RSI has taken support near the 60 zone and bounced sharply. The daily RSI has surged above its prior swing high. The daily MACD stays bullish as it is trading above its zero line and signal line. Technically, all the factors are currently aligned in support of the bulls. Hence, we would advise the traders to be with a bullish bias. Going ahead, the zone of Rs 280-Rs 271 level is a crucial support area and the level of Rs 350-Rs 355 is a resistance. zone.

Opening Bell: Here’s what you need to know before the market opens on October 06, 2021.   

Moody’s has upgraded its outlook on India’s Sovereign ratings to stable from negative.

Indian equity markets are likely to start Wednesday with a slightly negative bias as the SGX Nifty is seen trading down by 28.50 points or 0.16% at 17,790 levels. However, like in the recent past, we have seen dips are being bought, and expect a similar kind of trend to continue on Wednesday as well. The big news which could act as music to the ears of the bulls is that rating agency Moody’s has upgraded its outlook on India’s sovereign ratings to stable from negative.

Cues from Asian markets: Majority of the Asian stock markets were trading in red on Wednesday. Japan’s Nikkei 225 was down by 0.96% and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng has shed 0.93%.

Overnight cues from US markets: It was a green day on Wall Street as all three major US stocks indices ended the session in positive terrain. A report released indicated that the US service sector surprisingly grew a tad faster in September. The tech-heavy Nasdaq led from the front as it jumped 1.3% followed by S&P 500 and the Dow which added 1.1% and 0.9%, respectively. Usually, it is believed that bonds yield and stock price have an inverse relationship to each other, however, on Tuesday both bond yields and the stock price rose. The 10-year US Treasury bond yield moved above 1.5%.

Last session summary: On Tuesday, Indian benchmark indices ended in green for a second straight day. The Sensex and Nifty closed up by 0.75% and 0.74%, respectively. Reliance Industries and TCS combinedly contributed nearly 56 points to Nifty’s kitty.

Among the sectoral indices, Nifty Energy and IT were the top gainers. On other hand, Nifty Realty and Nifty Pharma were top losers.

FII’s and DII’s activity on Tuesday: FIIs were net sellers to the tune of Rs 1,915.08 crore on Tuesday. On other hand, DIIs were net buyers to the tune of Rs 1,868.23 crore.

SIP Performance: Canara Robeco Bluechip Equity Fund – Direct Plan.

SIP Performance: Canara Robeco Bluechip Equity Fund – Direct Plan.
by 5paisa Research Team 06/10/2021

Canara Robeco Bluechip Equity Fund is one of the highly rated equity funds within the category and has outperformed its benchmark in a 3, 5 and 7 year period.

An individual has various options available in the market in which he can invest his money. Every individual has a different level of income. Some of them have lower income, some are moderate-income earners, while some have higher income. The investment amount also varies according to the level of income an individual possesses. An individual with lower income or moderate-income levels cannot invest higher amounts regularly or they cannot dedicate a huge lump-sum amount at a single point in time. Hence, mutual funds offer investors to invest in amounts as small as Rs 500, which aids small as well as a big investor to get the habit of investing.

This encourages youngsters i.e. individuals who start their journey of earnings to invest right from a young age. It also enables the creation of a large corpus if investors invest for a longer time. Individuals, who are at an early stage of earning, have a high-risk capacity as compared to mid-earning or pre-retirement and retirement stage investors. So, investors with high-risk capacity can invest the amount in equity-related schemes in their early stage and further, can shift some proportion to debt once they get decent returns from the equity markets.

Now let’s look at the SIP performance of Canara Robeco Bluechip Equity Fund which is a large-cap fund investing in the 1st-100th company in terms of full market capitalization. This fund is outperforming its benchmark in 3, 5 and 7-year periods and it is the highest-rated fund within its category. All rating agencies such as CRISIL, Morningstar and Value Research have five rated this fund. If you had invested just Rs 1,000 every month i.e. Rs 12,000 per annum from October 1, 2018, till the present date i.e. October 6, 2021, then the worth of your investment would have been Rs 58,070 as against the amount invested of Rs 37,000. The following graph depicts the growth of the above investment.

Now the question arises, what rate of return would the above investment deliver? Let’s look at the same:


As we could see the calculation, if you had invested Rs.1000 every month for three years you would have received 29.34% return.

Investment dilemma: Should you go for VIP or SIP.

Investment dilemma: Should you go for VIP or SIP.
by 5paisa Research Team 06/10/2021

Value-averaging investment plan helps investors to follow ‘buy low and sell high’ and achieve their financial goal in a pre-determined time frame.

The age-old wisdom of "buying low and selling high" is the only way you make money in the equity market. But for various reasons, be it behavioural and otherwise, fail to follow. However, there is a concept called Value Averaging Investment Plan (VIP) that utilizes the same concept to make money for you.       

What is a Value Averaging Investment Plan (VIP)

Investment in VIP is very much like the much-publicized SIP where you invest every month in a chosen mutual fund at a pre-determined frequency. However, the amount you invest is not constant and keeps on changing in VIP according to the market performance. Under VIP you set a target value of your portfolio that you want to achieve at the end of a period. Now you work backwards to achieve that target investment value every month.


If as an investor you want to buy a car 12 months from now, that is valued at Rs 600000. Working backwards, you need to save and invest at least Rs 50,000 per month over the year in your mutual fund portfolio (For simplicity we are assuming no returns). In the first month, you invested Rs 50,000. In the second month, your fund performed better and now your fund value increased to Rs 51,000. Now in the second month, you need to invest only Rs 49,0000 as this will add up to Rs 1,00,000. In the third month, however, the market nosedived, and the investment value declined to Rs 98,000. Now to make up his portfolio value to Rs 1,50,000, the investor needs to invest Rs 52,000.

The above example clearly shows that when the market is high, VIP makes us invest less, while it forces us to invest more when the market is low, helping us to follow the classical strategy of “buy low and sell high”. One drawback of this strategy is you do not know beforehand what is amount you need to invest every month. Hence, you need to have extra liquidity to cover up any shortfall. Another disadvantage of VIP is that you may not invest during the bull run. This is the case in the current scenario where in the last one year Nifty 50 has increased by 53% or around 4% every month. So, depending upon your requirement, every month you will continue to contribute less towards your goal.

Nonetheless, VIP is mostly used by investors to achieve a target value for some specific purpose, like a car in the above example.
