How To Select Best Mutual Funds Or ELSS: Top Mutual Funds Schemes & ELSS 2017

Respected Readers,
In this Article, I tell you "How to select a best mutual fund scheme?" or "How to choose an ELSS?"
I am also mentioning the name of top mutual funds schemes and top ELSS which are the best for starting a new SIP in 2017.
First of all, I want to ask one question from you.
"Have you invested in mutual funds or not?"
If your answer is "No."
Then where you invest your savings?
Now some of my followers say " I have not enough savings for investing?"
Others say "Mutual funds are slow and I invest my savings in bank fix deposits."
If your answer match with above 2 possible replies then you are a poor dad.
Why I use word "poor dad." 
Famous American author Robert Kiyosaki wrote a series of books in the name of rich dad I recommended to read one book of this series name " Rich Dad's Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest in, That the Poor and the Middle Class Do Not."
If you did not read this book yet, then it is strongly recommended to read it here is the links to this book in English, Hindi, Marathi. Languages:-
If you do not wish to read above book, then please watch my Youtube  Hindi Video or English dubbed video for more understanding on this issue, videos links:-

English Dubbed Video:-


Now the question is " How to select a best mutual fund scheme or ELSS?"
For choosing a best mutual fund scheme to remember these rules:-
1. Do not invest in NFO's: - Suppose there is 2 business man's one established his business 10 years ago, and since last 10 year he borrowings money from people and give them 18% returns on their investment. 
Because he has already a well-established infrastructure, and well-diversified business portfolio and he expertly knew how to invest people's borrowed money in his businesses and able to give them returns near 18%.
Now, the 2nd businessman who have no experience, no any current businesses set up ask your money and promise you that he will also set up a well-diversified business portfolio like the first person and he promises that he may me also able to give you same return in the long term. 
Then where you invest your money?
I knew your reply " I will go with the first person  who has already a well-established infrastructure, and well-diversified business portfolio and he expertly knew how to invest people's borrowed money in his businesses and able to give them returns near 18%."
Same happen in mutual funds so do not invest your money in an NFO (New Fund Offer) because in this market many funds available with 10 years+ track record with well-diversified portfolio then why you trap your money with a new fund?
As my past experience in initial 3 years new funds not perform well and I regularly warn my followers that they do not invest in IPO or NFO, for more details read this earlier article: -Time to Start SIP in Religare Invesco Pan European Equity Fund @ 8.96
So my first rule " Choose funds with 10 years+ track record."
2.Choose Diversified funds: - Some of the mutual funds invest only in large cap some invest only in mid-cap, and some invest only in small cap stocks. I think why we restricted our investment on market cap size. So choose diversified funds which invest money in all caps ( large cap, mid cap, and small cap companies).
3. Choose funds which provide 20%+ returns in last 5 years: - Bank FD give us near 8-9% annually returns, the index like Nifty Sensex growth rate near 15% annually so I will like to choose a fund who give 20%+ returns annually in last 5 years.
4. Choose fund size more than 5000 Cr.: -Please refer chapter 22 of my book "The Winning Theory In Stock Market" where I told how largest size funds able give large returns. 
Here I want to inform you about one good news. Some of my followers report that my books are highly priced, so they hesitate to buy a copy. Actually, I am not sold my books directly, and Indian importers import my books from USA and UK then sell it on Amazon India or Flipkart Etc.
So price set by the importer of the book, Now Indian edition of my both books published with Indian publisher Pothi.com and these Indian paperback editions are same as the imported paperback editions.
These Indian paperback editions now available at the reasonable price through Amazon India, Paytm, Flipkart, etc. here are the links for new followers:-
Paytm link for book 1

Flipkart link for book 1

Practically Selection Of Top Mutual Funds Schemes & ELSS 2017:-
Now I telling how you practically choose mutual funds schemes and ELSS from the help of moneycontrol site; open this link in your browser:-
http://www.moneycontrol.com/mf/find_a_fund/find_a_fund.php
Set criteria's as shown in this picture:-



Now click on "GO."
You see that moneycontrol select 30 funds based on above criteria's which looks like this pic:-

But here moneycontrol allow maximum fund size 1000 cr but as per my rule, we only select fund size over 5000 cr.
Second restriction, moneycontrol allow the age of fund maximum 5-year-old, but as per rule, we require fund age more than 10 years. So here we need hand-pick 10-year-old funds with 5000 cr plus fund size.
Here, with the help of above results, I hand picked these largest fund size funds which 10 years or more old:-
HDFC Equity Fund (G)
ICICI Pru Value Discovery Fund (G)
Franklin India Prima Plus (G)

How to Book Profits in Mutual Fund Growth or Dividend-Reinvestment Schemes SIP

Respected Readers, 

If you make a long term SIP in mutual fund growth or dividend reinvestment schemes and unfortunately the market is fall like 1992 2008 2013 2016, then most of your profit goes back and your portfolio value may down below your primary investment (principal investment). 
For example:- 
On 21 Jan 2013, 
Suppose you accumulated 1000 units of HDFC top 200 G mutual fund scheme, and your average buying price is 200 per unit, so your basic investment is 1000*200=INR 2,00,000 NAV of HDFC Top 200 Growth fund on 21 Jan 2013 was 234.759 So market value or value on NAV of your 1000 units was 1000*234.759=INR 2,34,759 
So on 21 Jan 2013, you are happy to see that you get INR 34759 Profit (17.37% Return) on your investment of INR 2,00,000.
Unfortunately, the market is fall and NAV of your mutual fund are also fall.
( For more details, please refer Chapter 24 of my book because I write this article give more insight on chapter 24 "How to Book Profits in Mutual Fund SIP" of my book "The Winning Theory in Stock Market"). 
So after this market fall as on 21 Aug 2013 NAV of HDFC Top 200 Growth fund was 187.204.
That time market value or NAV value of your units was:- 1000*187.204=1,87,204 
Now you lost all of your profit 34759 also lost your basic principal amount 12796 That time you worried that why not you sell your units on 21 Jan 2013. 
So I innovate a profit booking formula for mutual fund SIP. You read his method in chapter 24 of my book. 
Those who not buy my book, please refer this earlier article: - Sharegenius Formula of Mutual Fund Profit Booking 
As per this formula "When your total portfolio value grows 11% then book your 33% corpus and continue you’re SIP." 
Some of my followers still not understand this formula clearly and demand that I upload an excel sheet to clear this formula.
So I make an excel sheet of Last 5 Year 2000 per month SIP in HDFC Top 200 G Fund, In this excel sheet I show how you book your profits using my sharegenius formula download this sheet from this link:-
Now you may still argue that instead of profit booking if we continue to hold these units then we get more return if they compare profit booking of INR 22885.68 in above sheet.
So please remember:- 
1. Currently, the market is high, and when the market is correct then most of your notional profit also run away from your portfolio but if you book your profit 22885.68, then it never went in any situation. 
2. If we re-invest this total amount of INR 74576 (which we get through the selling of units see the last row in above excel sheet), then this amount also earn from bank FD or individual stocks. 
3. Finally, I have other revolutionary Idea that if you do not want to use this money INR 74576 which we get by selling of units. Then revert this formula and re-invest last profit booking again when your portfolio value down 11%. It means sell units when portfolio value rises 11% and reinvest this money when portfolio value down -11%. 
I make this excel sheet again with this reverse sharegenius formula, and you wonder that this time, our total profit is INR 41127.29 
Download this 2nd excel sheet here:- 
Please remember this formula is only for growth schemes and dividend re-investment plans, new readers, please read this article to understand that why I prefer dividend reinvestment instead of growth plans:- 
One other thing that If you want regular tax free income from mutual funds then use this formula:- 
Some of my followers have very suspicious nature, so they comment on my earlier posts and doubt on my historical NAV data. 
They think my data are wrong so this time, I provide the link where I download data of past NAV which I used in above excel sheet, You may also use this link to download past NAV history of any mutual fund scheme and check my theory in your mutual fund scheme:- https://www.personalfn.com/tools-and-resources/mutual-funds/nav-history.aspx 
Finally, This is your time to comments, better what you think about it? If you try different % in above sheet and better % ratio, then do not forget to share it in comments.

Time to Start a SIP in Reliance US Equity Opportunities Fund @ 9.90

Respected Readers,
Reliance US Equity Opportunities Fund NFO was come in 03 July 2015 to 17 July 2015 at NAV of 10 per unit 

 My Regular followers knew that I always avoid to invest in NFO because after a NFO in most of cases we see price of fund NAV fall below NFO price read some past example here:-
Best European Mutual Fund in India
or
Reliance Infrastructure Fund Review
So as our earlier experience now NAV of Reliance US Equity Opportunities Fund is fall below 10 and currant NAV of this fund is 9.90 only
So we now start a SIP of 1000/- per month in this fund
Which option we choose in growth and dividend fund:- If you are a new reader then you may confuse to see that 2 schemes is avalible in this fund 
Reliance US Equity Opportunities Fund (G) or growth plan
and
Reliance US Equity Opportunities Fund(D) or dividend plan
so which plan is best?
OK I have a separate detail article on this issue where I explain how dividend re-investment is 3 time better then growth plan, if you not read it yet then please read it here:-
So in light of above article I recommended to choose dividend re investment option but if you like to get regular monthly tax free income from this fund then choose growth plan and read this article to knew how to get regular monthly income from mutual fund growth plan:-
Now I tell you why I choose Reliance US Equity Opportunities Fund in all international fund which invest in US market.
Actually Most of international mutual funds are fund of fund ( fund of fund means a mutual fund which hold units of another funds),  but Reliance US Equity Opportunities Fund is directly invest in US stocks here is the situation of  Reliance US Equity Opportunities Fund portfolio as on 31 March 2016
Name %
Mastercard 8.73
Express Scripts Holding Co 7.61
Baidu Sp ADR-A 7.56
The Priceline Group Inc 6.83
Alphabet Inc A 6.81
Blackrock Inc 6.76
Time Warner Inc. 6.68
VENTAS INC 5.95
WW Grainger Inc 5.21
PAYPAL HOLDINGS INC 4.13
Cooper Companies Inc 4.08
COMPASS MINERALS INTERNATIONAL INC 4
Cme Group Inc 3.79
ITC Holdings Corp 3.64
Discover Financial Services 3.38
Alphabet Inc 3.33
Carmax Inc 2.74
Ebay Inc 2.53
Potash Corp Of Saskatchewan Inc 1.46

So I think direct holding reduce fund management fees because if we buy a fund of fund then we pay fund management fees for both of funds.(one is original fund and  second is holding fund )

Equity Mutual Funds That Pay Monthly Dividends: How to Grow Your Money Tree.

From past many years I search a equity mutual fund that pay monthly dividends. 

Unfortunately I not find such type of Indian equity mutual fund that pay monthly dividends but I have an alternate that change your idea to locate equity mutual fund that pay monthly dividends.
Before we continue on this idea I want to clear some basic things.
Why I want equity mutual fund that pay monthly dividends?:- If any equity mutual fund pay me monthly dividends then I get regular dividend income which is income tax free in India so I utilize this tax free dividend income as my second income source or I make my own stock portfolio with help of this tax free monthly income.
and my original investment use for wealth creating through mutual funds. I think this is a great idea so I locate such type of funds but result is zero(nil).
Why not we choose MIP ( Monthly income plans):- Many of my readers think that today I put wrong information on my blog because many MIP-MF is available in India like SBI Magnum monthly income plan, Birla sun life MIP etc then why I say I not found any equity mutual fund that pay monthly dividends?
OK,  MIP is a debt mutual fund scheme which invests a small part of his funds (10-25 per cent) in equities and remaining (75-90 per cent) in debts. 
It offers regular income in the form of periodic (monthly, quarterly, half-yearly) dividend payouts.
So MIP is categorized under debt fund and MIP is not treated as equity fund so MIP dividends are debt funds dividends which are tax free but company liable to pay DDT ( Dividned Distribution Tax) in debt fund dividends so overall this DDT reduce my returns on MIP and MIP dividends returns are very poor like a saving account interest.
What Alternate we have to get regular monthly income from equity mutual fund:-Now I tell you my shocking research that how we get regular monthly income from equity mutual fund with mix combination of SIP&SWP. Become your own fund manager and every month sell your fund units to get 1% amount of your fund value as your monthly dividend income. 
Step by Step detail of this Idea:-
1.Make a lum-sum investment of minimum 1.00 lac in any good diversified equity growth fund with good track record of past 5 years. 
2.I advice to make a lum sum investment of minimum 1.00 lac because 1% of this 1.00 lac is 1000 and I want minimum 1000 per month income by selling of my units because selling of fund unit below value of 1000 is not allowed in most of mutual funds. 
3.Now start a 2000 per month SIP in this mutual fund for regular increment in your fund value and monthly tax free gain. 
4. Now wait minimum 1 year to grow your fund with market because selling of mutual fund unit below 1 year holding is taxable in income tax rules. 
5. After 1 year your tree of money is ready for fruits now sell your units every month to get 1% of your fund value for that month. 

I apply this example in HDFC top 200 G fund from 1 march 1999 to 1 march 2016, I provide my excel sheet to you where you see:-
Our total notional investment in last 17 year is 5,08,000 
We get total monthly dividend ( actually not dividend it is long term capital gain from systematic withdrawal) of 13,98,879 Our holding is still in profit of 4,13,527 
Amazing,

Top 10 Mutual Funds for SIP to Invest in 2016

Respected Readers,
on 18 march 2015 I declare top 10 Indian mutual fund schemes of 2015 for SIP investment. here is the link of this earlier article:-
Now it is the time to discuss top 10 mutual funds SIP to invest in 2016.
Last year I choose only Indian funds in this top 10 list but now I think any one can diversified his mutual fund holding globally.
So in my 2016 top mutual fund schemes list I include top 10 Indian mutual fund schemes which invest in India and abroad.
How I choose top mutual fund scheme?:- As you read in my book (The Winning Theory in Stock Market)that size of AUM is a best criteria to choose a mutual fund scheme.
What is AUM:- AUM means asset under management  I give you a example if fund X corpus is 100000 rupee and fund Y corpus is 500000 rupee then which fund have better chance to diversification I think it is fund Y have better chance of diversification due to It's large AUM size.
Generally I say
" It is difficult to earn 100 rupees from 100 rupee investment but it is easy to earn 1 Cr. from 1Cr. rupee investment.
Read this chandu story to see power of diversification:-
So I give these top 10 scheme on basis of fund AUM and Diversification globally. ( as well as diversification among fund houses so I do not repeat any mutual fund company in this list).
How to invest:- If you easily save INR 10,000 in every month then Start a 1000 rupee SIP in each of scheme. 
but if you unable to save INR 10,000 in every month then here is the option:-
If you want to invest INR 1000 every month then start SIP only in scheme 1 .

If you want to invest INR 2000 every month then start  2 SIP (1000 each)  in scheme 1 and 2.

If you want to invest INR 3000 every month then start  3 SIP (1000 each)  in scheme 1,2 and 3.

If you want to invest INR 4000 every month then start  4 SIP (1000 each)  in scheme 1,2,3 and 4.....and so on.

Why I choose Dividend Schemes instead of growth schemes and in dividend option what to choose dividend payout or dividend re-investment?:-  I have a separate article on this issue so please visit this link to understand that why I recommended dividend schemes with dividend-reinvestment option:-
Top 10 mutual fund scheme (seniority wise ) for 2016:-
