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…

India's long-term story is intact

It's quite common to find volatility in the Markets during the election year. Don't fear something odd is happening now.

I believe in the strength of India and its youth. India has the biggest pool of young people in the world. I feel even one percent of rightly educated youth can push its growth upwards employing the remaining ninety-nine percent. Further, India has the potential to become one of the richest nations on the earth if it provides free scientific education to its youth.






Coming to the investment, foreign investors may be withdrawing funds from India as they never hold the first-hand experience with our nation. The media is the only source of information for them. In that situation, there is no wonder they get frightened. But, I feel India is rich enough to stand on its own. The people have a considerable amount of money to invest in their own country. So, I advise them to buy shares of quality companies instead of buying Gold. We, the people, are the real strength of our nation. In addition to it, I recommend the government to lift restrictions on the black money and give sops to the people who want to change their black into white through investing. It is better if the Government of India allows the rich to put their black money into investments that have a lock-in period of more than four years. Extreme situations need extreme measures.

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.
