Stock spotting: Are New Age retail investors able to decode the science of investing?


Retail investors, who did well for the past two years, have taken a serious beating amid the current economic scenario. ET Prime looks at the top 20 stocks held by retail and finds that barring three, their average return is down 11% for the last year. Against this, MFs are down by only 3%. Are retail investors still confident?

Over the past year, Yes Bank is up 26% at INR16. Retail investors have finally made a decent return on the stock at a time when the Nifty 50 is flat. They hold a 25% share in the bank. This is especially satisfying for them as they had been confident about the stock – more than ITC. Even when Yes Bank ran into trouble due to asset quality reviews in 2017 and 2018, investors were unperturbed. From March 2018 to March 2019 the stock fell 10%,
