Abstract

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NUMBER OF STOCKS IN EQUITY PORTFOLIO AND RETURN: AN EMPIRICAL STUDY

Prof. Madhu Iyengar* and Dr. Pushpkant Shakdwipee

ABSTRACT

One of the popular avenues for investors is the investment in capital market especially in equity if the investors are looking out for high returns. It is a fact that high return will be accompanied by high risk, risk and returns are inversely related. Compared to other avenues like real estate, infra which are illiquid assets, equity market has been generating a higher return and at the same time they are highly liquid. On the other hand, investment in bonds, fixed deposits which are less risky than equity investments yield lower returns. There is famous quote “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” which is also quite relevant for investors as well. It has been proved that spreading the investment fund across different sectors, or different companies in the same sector help in risk reduction. An interesting proposition is whether along- with risk reduction, spreading investment corpus across, will help in achieving reasonably higher return or not. This paper tries to understand the relationship between the number of stocks invested and the average return earned over a period of time by taking survey of individual investors.
