    Vedanta - Delisting

    That is difficult to achieve. A large chunk of the shares are with mutual funds and insurance companies. If they throw away the shares at cheap valuations, it will create a big uproar. Just LIC has over 6% stake. Private DIIs can be convinced by under-table deals, but those investing public's...

    How Long Will The Indian Economy Take to be on Track?

    Vedanta - Delisting I am not sure if the above rule is the latest one, but whatever the new rule is, it is likely to consider some kind of average price. Promoters can't just delist at prevailing market prices - else all companies will delist in bear markets...

    Vedanta - Delisting

    No need to book a loss. If the promoter is serious about delisting, the final offer price will be much higher than the current price. The 26 week average price is somewhere around 118. Delisting can't happen below that price.

    What to Buy in This Crash for Long Term?

    There is significant selling pressure above 9400 and even today market has come down after breaking out initially. Nifty isn't even able to stay above the 38.2% retracement level and that is a worrying sign. Government is likely to open up most parts of the economy from next week - not because...

    What to Buy in This Crash for Long Term?

    Nifty has broken past the 38.2% retracement level of 9390. Next Fibonacci levels to watchout for are 9971 and 10551. I expect the market to slowly keep moving up as the economy re-opens. The real extent of damage done to the economy will be known only after 3-4 months.

    What to Buy in This Crash for Long Term?

    True. Arranging liquidity has always been a challenge for MSMEs in India. With mounting losses, many of these businesses are now just weeks away for collapse. The coming recession will be a graveyard for small businesses. As if the demand destruction wasn't enough, the government has now...

    Gold BeES

    Gold BeES performance may deviate a bit from underlying asset (gold) as 100% of the corpus is not invested in gold and also there are other expenses to take care of. Gold BeES has been moving up and down with gold prices (INR). Isn't it? I think the best way to invest in gold is to buy...
