Yesterday, India announced it is "restricting" the import of laptops, tablets, all-in-one personal computers and servers with immediate effect. Big, right?

This thread tries to explain the background, impact, the laptop value chain and stocks to play the shift.


Here's the official communication.

We imposed a "licensing requirement" for import of laptops, tablets, etc. This means Apple, Dell, Samsung cannot just make these somewhere else and export to India.

Effectively, Government has said - "India chahiye, to India mai banao". Image

@safiranand Safir, my view of the Adani story is this: Adani grew because he demonstrated unmatched ability in India to build world-class infra. In the most efficient way.

Mundra in Kutch was a semi-desert. They transformed it into world-class maritime port.

Largest ever container vessel: @safiranand Adani New Industries recently commissioned India's largest wind turbine at Mundra. Standing 200m, it is taller than the world's tallest statue, the Statue of Unity (182m), with blades bigger than the wingspan of a Boeing 747.

Indian purchased Rs 20,000 cr or 39 ton of gold on Dhanteras this year. Good news? No.

Government din't want this. Infact, they had levied import duties in July to stop us. Why? Gold imports add to India's current deficit and thus depletes Forex reserves.

Quick one 👇
Indian households and temple hold the highest bullion (gold) reserves in the world:

Households: ~23,500 ton ($1.5 Tn!)
Temples: ~4,000 ton
US reserves: ~4,000 ton
And poor RBI: 745 ton

Infact Government wants people to deposit their idle gold with Banks & earn interest.

True independence and economic growth will come only with growth of rural India. So let me share my learnings of an interesting model that is scaling fast in Indian hinterlands.

A thread on CSC Grameen e-store - India's biggest rural eCommerce revolution.

It's the desi, rural version of Flipkart & Amazon, promoted by GoI and started in April '20 as a post-Covid model when supplies had stopped.

And it's working - Turnover jumped over 100% yoy in FY22, from 259 to 581 crores! If there was a VC, this would be a unicorn already..

He partnered with the promoter! An explainer on the strategy.

A stock that did well for me last year was KPIT. My first buy was lower (sub 100) but a small position. I knew the usual stuff known to market - ER&D industry outlook, focus on auto engineering, KPIT's specialization, clients, work, etc.

Subsequently, I garnered the conviction.. to make it my second largest holding at around 150 in March last year.

The trigger - I came across expert industry webinars during study. Saw one on Green Hydrogen which I could attend publicly. It was chaired by Raj Kumar Singh, the Minister of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE)..

Think big. Act small.


Think big: I want to generate 5x returns on my portfolio in 5 years.

Act small: Every day, I spend min 2 hours reading annual reports and other forms of research to build conviction.

And there is a handy tracker as well! 👇
docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d… 5x in 5 years implies 38% CAGR, which has low probability (happy with 25%).

But as retail investors, we have an edge that institutions don't - we don't have to chase benchmarks every qtr & our winners can run longer. 5 yrs is good for a researched investment to bear fruits.

Total US population: 33 crores
Total Indians in US: 0.42 crores

Total unicorns in US: 290
Unicorns by NRI Indians: 67

Indians are 1.3% of US population, but have founded 23% of US unicorns! Now imagine the potential of home grown unicorns over the next decade. Talent was never a question, digital infrastructure has been formed in last few years and regulations are more supportive.
