ace_bubble man, u had a preety gr8 analysis.the problem being that my fundas r not so developed or maybe i don't had such gr8 vocabulary.quite a few abbrivations went up my head.so plz give full name. will love to participate.
guys, can anyone suggest a good site which give basic fundas fr the market terminology. because i had done a huge blunder in my last post.photon buddy, we had mixed bonus and stock split completely. there is no official reduction in the value of share. whatever the value reduction, it is purely on the basis of increased presence of shares in market.the profit went to shareholders who had purchased the share prior to a fixed date, so later buying won't help anyone. it happens only due to promising future returns.i am surprised why no one has corrected us. sorry nickspeedster .
jindal is in serious of being acquired or sold in the next 3 -5 years, it doesn't have the scale, nor the ficus, it'll probably keep it's power business . SAIL is an awesome copmany with a bright future, it's debt/equity is high cos govt rules don't allow it to to offload more equity.tisco & sail will be the one's to watch out for, though i seriously doubt any govt bailout of sail because of lack political fallout.
Iam ready to chip in. But before that was just wondering whether ppl out here also do the Technical analysis things before investing? I went through a book
Technical Analysis of Stock Trends by Robert D. Edwards, John F. Magee
Was amazed at how People's psychology was getting repeated in the shape of chart patterns. Discussion could also centre arnd Supports n Resistances, RSI n ROC and Averages and what not. Truly addictive
Okay lets see...
you buy one share from the market tomorrow...
say for a price of 5500...
after some time you get 3 more shares, so now you have four.
The price per share however will drop significantly.
Lets see it goes to as low as 2500.
But you still have 4 shares, so that Rs. 10000 for you.
Plus a dividend of Rs. 115(that will more than take care of your brokerage too!!!)
Not a bad deal afterall
I wld have to agree with mux. I have burnt quite a few fingers in stocks that i had bought after a sharp run up only for them to change trends and leave me high and dry. But the word on the street is that the infy stock is better now than after the record date. So dont rule out an Infy at 6000 soon.
and yes mux, I too would not recommend day trading at all. I do it for the thrill. I do it to test my knowledge viz with the market. And more often than not the market humbles u.
snan and nick talked of P/Es and valuations. I just wanted to take that discussion forward. Does a High PE mean the stock is overvalued and a Low PE viseversa?
The icicidirect content website has an interesting ratio called PEG ratio which adds on to the PE ratio. I shall demonstrate using an example:
Infy: 30 PE and Wipro: 40 PE.
Let us assume EPS growth esimates for 04-05 for Infy: 30% and for Wipro is 50%
So the PEG ratio now works out to Infy 30/30 =1 and Wipro 40/50 = 0.8
According to them Fund Managers have started using this as a tool as they are not able to compare PEs direcly. So going by the above data Wipro is much better buy than Infy as its potential to grow is not factored into the stock price.
back aftr lunch
Mutual Funds are yes safe give good steady returns are handled by Professional Fund Managers. But again its like you putting all the money to buy the car and make a driver take the car out. You just cant feel the power. Most ppl's ego wouldn't let them trust a fund manager when it comes to a question of their money.
this was the best advice i must admit. can u give some more details as to how a novice like me can open an online demat account or in short get into stock investing.
a gr8 idea as well. but i believe one needs to have sufficient money to make suffucient money if he is holding the blue chip ones. on the other hand 10Rs. scrips if held in large multiples may be able to generate some money for a decent appreciation. plz. help me clear my doubts on this one.
again photon, how can i student like me apply for a kitty in IPOs. the process i mean.
some info. into how this is done would be illusionary!
asking for too much man, but u r the only one out here with the practical exp.
well, photon could plz. put some light on ur portfolio and how u actually started into investing and satta...nivoces like me could largely benefit.
This is something that has fascinated me since childhood. No surprises since it seemed to be the easiest way to make money. But why should u invest in Equity markets where the risks are so high and we have seen investors losing the money?
One rational could be the fact that the inflation is hovering under the 5% mark. Fixed Deposit rates are at an all time low. So FD returns do not cover for the rise in inflation. Last year BSE Sensex gained 83% Can any of the banks beat that?
So with sensex poised to touch the 6000 mark again. Was just wondering what the ppl out here were thinking. What is the prognosis for the future? What are the instruments that ppl follow to track stock markets?
Read an article on how Infosys has created share holder wealth for the investing public
Imagine a retail investor putting in money in the Infy IPO in 1993 at Rs 95 a share getting 100 shares allotted. If he had gone on vanvas and returned back only yesterday these number of shares wld have appreciated to 6400 shares.
9500 Rs -> 3.5 Crores in 11 years
I have not been that lucky in my investments though
But iam sure the current volatility would settle down and the trend is still secular post the elections. What say?
