Many times stocks are treated as lottery tickets, people buy them and sell as they move up and they continue to hold on to those which are below their buying price. Whereas, the real way to create huge wealth in the stock market is to buy stocks of few promising businesses below 50% of their worth and continue to hold them for a longer period till they are fairly valued and book losses as early as possible in those which were wrongly bought.
At Hedgehog we follow the same; we put all our efforts in finding promising businesses of which our clients can buy stocks and they continue to hold them for a longer period of time with peace of mind, without need to actively track them.
It is simple, but we have to be more disciplined than the rest to create wealth.

Though we believe that past performance is no guarantee for future and it was more of luck that generated such a good return for us in a short span, but we still believe such opportunities are always available in the market, but rarer than those that were in the past.
Our investment philosophy is inspired from Hedgehog – known for simplifying the complex situation.
The stock market is a no-called-strike game. You don’t have to swing at everything–wait for your sweet spot and then swing hard with everything you’ve got.
We limit our efforts to the inefficient markets where hard-work and skill would pay off the best.
We do not believe in the predictive ability required to correctly time markets.
We like to invest in businesses that are simple, run by talented and honest management, which are cash generating.
We buy into a company because we want to own it, not because we want the stock to go up. We believe if we buy good businesses stocks will eventually follow.
We give higher priority for preventing losses. If we avoid losers, the winners will take care of themselves.
We would like to remain with few good long-term choices rather than frequently shifting from one to another.
It is our belief that superior record is built on a high batting average rather than a mix of brilliant successes and dismal failures.
