Subbu's Solution

Which one of the investment style is good for better returns

i.e., investing directly into a particular midcap stock or midcap fund?
Investing in one stock always is always riskier than investing in a bunch of stocks. We would never advise you to put all your eggs in a single basket, but diversify using Mutual Funds. Investing in a mutual fund will earn you the benefit of a fund manager's expert financial knowledge. A good fund manager is one who will invest in stocks after thorough research and at when stocks are at attractive valuations. You benefit by spreading risk across several stocks instead of investing directly in a single stock which may or may not give you the expected returns.
As an investor, you would need to devote time and energy to read and understand balance sheets of the company that you are investing in. The time and energy required is higher if you trying to build a portfolio of stocks instead of a single stock. Those investors who have the patience to understand the fundamentals of investing directly in stocks of a company may adopt this path. Else we recommend that every Indian saver should consider Mutual Funds as investment vehicles in which to invest their savings.
