    S Chand and Company IPO

    There is absolutely no merit in applying for this IPO at this price. People who have applied and gets allocation, should book listing gains at the earliest opportunity.

    I use the NAV based approach to measure portfolio, refer earlier posts in the thread. The PF NAV has increased by that margin, during the said period. Not absolute returns, since capital was invested along the way too between 2013-2017.

    Start using screener https://www.screener.in/ The key to look into aspects like Capex completed. Current CWIP would be very small and Net Block would be significantly large. For such companies, the Op Cash flow will be much higher than reported earnings due to heavy depreciation. As the...

    Not always. This depends on how the business is protecting the brand moat. So for example in consumables like castrol, even if they can maintain their market share incremental ROEs wil be huge. The absolute ROE might not reflect the true picture as companies might be holding cash/investments.

    Frankly speaking there aren't many undervalued gems at this point. Having said that, there aren't lack of decent compounders which will continue to churn superior earnings and are decently valued at this point. So the key is to moderate your return expectations for fresh entries at this point...

    Where to Invest LIC Matured Amount?

    I am assuming you need assured monthly income out of this corpus. Any ELSS would have a 3 year lock in and would not be helpful. For monthly payout, deposit the corpus in a long term debt fund and set up a monthly/quarterly SWP (Systematic Withdrawal Plan). Check the required lock in period so...

    I agree, and disagree on both :) 1) Moat is an over used and over abused word. Companies develop and protect a moat and some companies lose it over time. So the right thing to focus on is business strategy and how enduring the moat is. 2) All depends on margin of safety and valuation...

    Most brokers do not charge a brokerage for liquid BEES and there is no STT either. However do remember this is more of a cash parking tool, to wait for better opportunities to re-invest. So that you don't stare at the cash and jump on for the sake of action. From time to time, take out the...

    For people who have difficulty sitting on cash, Liquid BEES is a good option to park all surplus cash from the demat account itself and switch to equity anytime with minimum hassles. It would earn you 5-6% on the liquid portion yet have all cash ready for stock investments. You can read more...

    D-Mart - Avenue Supermarts IPO

    Why would an astute investor like RK Damani bring the IPO cheaper ? When we are talking about 2x the IPO price or higher there would be absolutely no margin of safety. No doubt it is a fantastic business, but buying a fantastic business at worst price is a not a wise decision. Ideal thing to...

    D-Mart - Avenue Supermarts IPO

    Company needs to dilute more in order to meet the stipulated 75% promoter holdings. There are rumors of a planned QIP in 6 months at a 4-digit price. Hence, it would be wise for people to hold on - who ever gets allocation.

    A direct equity holder cannot afford to have this. If you do not have a good idea why you are holding a stock, it is better to sell off and buy a MF where at least the fund manager would have that idea.

    Interesting ! With growing longevity and inflation in India, things can go wrong very quickly with only debt. Always have a moderate amount of equity otherwise you will lose purchasing power very fast. I am sure you must have exhausted all secured debt options before going to debt funds. Also...

    In market, you can't follow the herd and make money. If causes of concern are genuine, one needs to exit but price cannot be the determinant. I added one NBFC heavily during the fall and it is up 40% from the recent lows. Also in another HFC, the business itself is suffering - I didn't add a...
