Why has Marcellus portfolio underperformed in the last six months of FY22 and are we worried?
For the 6-month ending April 2022, Marcellus CCP portfolio has delivered -6.20% compared to -2.90% for Nifty 50 TRI. CCP stocks under-performing Vs Nifty 50 in the falling market has happened in the past as well (e.g.– during demonetization drawdown) but are we worried? Answer is NO.
- Attribution analysis for last the six months (refer to the table below) clearly shows that cyclical stocks like Hindalco, NTPC Ltd, Power Grid, etc. has held up Nifty performance. Given Marcellus’ philosophy, we are unlikely to invest in such cyclical stocks as they don’t clear our filters of consistent growth and returns on capital.
CCP stocks had also underperformed during demonetization drawdown but after that it went on to deliver superior returns to investors.
- Some of our portfolio companies have crude derivatives as raw materials in their business and hence the recent crude oil price spike could lead to some gross margin pressure for a quarter or two. Markets tend to take a short term view and punish companies for margin compression. However, due to high pricing power and incremental operational efficiencies, CCP companies are not only able to protect their margins, but also able to gain market share as competitors with weaker balance sheets and weaker pricing power struggle in this midst. We had explained this attribute of our portfolio companies in greater detail in our 1st June 2020 newsletter titled ‘CCPs avoid price hikes to strengthen pricing power’.
- Marcellus CCP company’s fundamentals continues to grow, driven primarily by market share gains as competitors got crippled and capital allocation initiatives implemented over the last two years. We have explained it in detail in our monthly newsletter titled: Acceleration in growth rates of CCP companies’ fundamentals
