Tweet the Stock Price Contest

Tweet the Stock-Price Contest

I am going to conduct a stock-prediction contest on my twitter account (thinkervenu) every week. I will pin the stock name to my twitter and you have to predict the correct closing price of the week. Your participation in the contest will end on the last but one trading day of the week. That means if the last day of trading is Friday, you have to reply with the price to the tweet by the end of Thursday. The correct prediction will win Rs 50 recharge to your phone. You have to add your phone number and the name of the service provider along with the predicted price of the stock so that I can credit the amount to your phone

Why I remain loyal to my portfolio?

There are many reasons why I stay focused on my portfolio. The most important reason is the Indian macro realty is intact and its long-term story is secure. Further, I don't believe the reign of any single party deciding the fate of this nation. The market and the businesses here are never dependent on political parties for their survival. In addition to it, the external forces too are not permanent but are cyclical. It is clear from the human history that the world and the markets have seen many Trumps and Modis. It's frivolous to think that any single phenomenon or any single person having the capability to kill the market and the businesses.

I am very sorry to say that the market is a den of big gamblers. These people come to market from many places like cricket betting. They generally go for very very short-term trading. They flood the market with their bets when no other betting options are available. They often disappear in milliseconds when they can't understand th…

Beware of Brokers!

Buying a land or house is not an easy task. That's why there is a proverbial saying in Telugu " Illu katti choodu, pelli chesi choodu" ( Building a house is as difficult as arranging a marriage between two people ).  But nowadays the brokers who make matches and property deals have become high-tech.
Let's see how the real-estate brokers cheat us

1. Most of the real-estate brokers supply you with fake documents. You better not believe them at the face-value

2. Brokers always try to charge 2% or 3% commission on a deal. They usually quote the higher price for any property as they want to get more commission. They always work for sellers and for themselves.

3. They don't want you to meet the real owner of the property

4. In order to find out the real owner of the property, we should always get the EC from the concerned registrar office

5. Try to approach the real owner of the property by seeing the photo and address of the owner that are given on the EC

6. Always t…

Why is it good to buy an Android One phone?

I bought a Samsung Galaxy smartphone six years back when I got my first Government job. That was my first smartphone. But it turned out to be the biggest disappointment after spending Rs 11,000. My colleagues who bought Micromax and Celkon smartphones at the same time for just half the price of my Samsung phone were the happier lot. My Samsung Galaxy gave me a lot of troubles compared to the cheapest phones bought by my friends. Frankly, I could not find out any reasons as I was having less technical knowledge than I am holding now.

After a while, I have taken up another Government job in my native district where I am presently working. I started hating my Samsung more now. My hatred towards it had grown so huge that I decided to buy another phone. So now, I don't want to waste my money on some high-end phones which give me a lot of headaches. So, I decided to buy a Micromax Fire 2 on Amazon at Rs 6000. Surprisingly the new phone had never given me trouble. It worked like anythin…

Successfully crossed 100,000 mark

I have successfully accumulated more than 100,000 shares of ten different companies until now. I will add more shares to my kitty in the future if I have any money available with me. Further, I don't want to have more than ten companies at a time in my portfolio. I believe persistence and patience are keys to success in investing





Market strategy until the next General Elections

There is some weakness apparently visible in the markets now. But, don't fear! It's quite common to find the volatility as this is an election year. And nobody knows when Modi announces the elections. 
Let's assume next General Elections are ten months away. How can we formulate our market strategy these ten months? I hope you are following at least ten stocks at a time. Always buy any of these stocks if they dive more than expected. If you are a salaried person, you can buy small amounts of stocks on every dip depending upon the availability of cash. This is the main point of our strategy. Don't sell any stock these ten months. 
You may ask me when to sell a stock. The best time to sell is after the new government takes over the reins. The market will be buoyant then. It will certainly make the northward movement. So, remember the right time to buy is during the election year. And the right time to sell is during the first two years of the new government.
