Yesterday (30-November-2016), again FIIs (Foreign Institutional Investors) were net sellers of Rs.434.42 crores whereas DIIs (Domestic Institutional Investors) were net buyers of Rs.676.68 crores in Indian cash equity market.
Refer my post on Diversify Your Risk By Investing In Mutual Funds. I had said that in the medium term it is the decision of DIIs (Domestic Institutional Investors) which performs better than the FIIs (Foreign Institutional Investors). I think the reason is pretty simple.
Who knows better about financial conditions of India? An Indian or a Foreigner? Of course an Indian, so in the long term it is the DIIs (Domestic Institutional Investors) whose portfolio performs better than the FIIs (Foreign Institutional Investors).
The result is in front of you. Indian markets have started showing signs of positive move since the time DIIs turned to buyers. It is been very long since FIIs (Foreign Institutional Investors) were sellers while DIIs (Domestic Institutional Investors) were buyers. I think once Nifty reaches levels of 8500+, DIIs (Domestic Institutional Investors) will start selling stocks to book profits, and who pays them the money? FIIs (Foreign Institutional Investors), of course will turn to buyers.
Isn’t it quite strange that FIIs (Foreign Institutional Investors) who are suppose to be more educated in foreign suits and MBA’s from top universities in US, UK or Australia are actually not taking the correct decision to buy and sell in Indian equity markets?
The world is a proof that only highly qualified people cannot take the correct decision. If you have good education from any institute anywhere in the world and if you are willing to know the reality coming out of the books and face the reality and difficulties of life and have the will power, and willing to world hard, have patience in the long term it is you who will perform better than those who think they are the boss of the world because they did MBA from the top university in US or UK.
My own cousin who studied in Kendriya Vidyalaya from 1 to calls 12th, and did computer science engineering from IIT Kanpur, is working as one of the main employees with lots of responsibilities in Java division in Android applications in California.
Of course due to security reasons I can neither reveal his name neither the name of the company he works for.
He is very young and 2 years back bought a home (not flat) worth USD $1 million (Rs. 6.8 crores) in California, USA where his company head headquarters are located. You know his father (my uncle – he is younger brother of my father) was a government employee and when he retired got his last salary of just Rs. 3000/-. He has a daughter too, she too is an engineer.
Now how many so called born rich kids in US who studied in top universities in USA are getting even half the salary he is getting? Not many. This is what hard work can do over the long term. Just having money and getting into a big university will not make you clever or educated. Books do not give you education if you have the money to buy them, they give education and knowledge if you have the will power and put your hard work to study them.
Coming back to DIIs and FIIs. It is not about one or two months I am watching them. I am reading about their buying and selling patterns since 2010. It has been 6 years now and almost every time in the long term (4-6 months), I see that it is DIIs (Domestic Institutional Investors) prove to be the correct decision makers. I am not saying that FIIs lose money and only DIIs make money in Indian markets. I am saying that DIIs bring more profits for their investors than the FIIs.
So, if you are a long term stock investor or long term mutual fund investor, follow DIIs (Domestic Institutional Investors) buying and selling patterns. Do not follow the FIIs (Foreign Institutional Investors) buying and selling patterns.
This will help your portfolio to bring better results and more profits.
