The Way Ahead

I have recently suffered heavy loss, around three lakh rupees, in my stock investment due to some extraordinary extraneous reasons which are not at all related to my methodology of investment. The reasons can be attributed to the government's delay in payment of my salary and some familial financial compulsions. But, I don't want to blame anyone for my loss.
After meeting my financial obligations by selling stocks, I am now left with only three companies in my portfolio. Those are 
1. TATA Motors 2. IRB Infra 3. TATA Global
And my total investment in these three stocks is around four lakh rupees. But these stocks fell heavily after my buying. Of course, some form of cynicism is prevalent in the market at present. Such a situation is quite common during an election year. Someway, I am at present experiencing some disdain towards the stock investment. Though the stock valuations are attractive, I don't want to go for stocks. I don't want to touch any stocks in the fores…

Excellency punished - The plight of AP Model Schools

The UPA government and its progressive forces have established national wide English Medium schools in order to serve the backward areas of India. These have been named 'Model Schools' by the UPA. They handed over these schools to the respective state governments three years back.

In AP, the situation is entirely different. From the beginning, the implementation of the programme faced major difficulties due to the pressure from illegal private schools and junior colleges as education is the biggest money making and money laundering sector in Andhra Pradesh. The big private educational institutions influenced the then Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar and created many hurdles in the process. But, Mr Kiran had to implement the Model School Programme as he received many ultimatums from the then Manmohan Government. But, the state government never cared much about the schools later.

The present TDP Government too not very much interested in the Model Schools though the results from the schools are excellent. The Model Schools are showing good results and are in great demand from the public. But, it seems the Government has second thoughts because the government is directly being run by the director of a big private educational institution. It's true the successive state governments of Andhra Pradesh played a huge role in killing the government educational and medical institutions. Now, they are also trying to destroy the Model Schools by not providing enough funds. The government wants to kill the morale of employees by not paying salaries regularly. The employees of the schools are receiving the pay only once in three or five months. Is the government right in doing so? There are no service rules till now. No health cards are provided to employees even after five years of service. Is there something cooking up?

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.
