If we look at major indices of 2 years back, Investors have not made money from stock markets. Major indices like Sensex and Nifty have moved no where. On 1st Dec 2010, Sensex was at 19,850 and today closed at 19392 giving negative returns of -2.3%. Small Cap Index and Mid Cap Index have seen a deeper cut during the same period.
Moreover, big daddies of dalal street, companies like Reliance, SBI, Infosys and L & T have given negative returns of -16%, -27%, -22% and -18% respectively to investors who invested in them on 1st Dec'10.
We always suggest salaried employees as well as businessmen / entrepreneurs to invest via SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) route. Simply get some savings from your monthly income and Invest in equities for long term. SIP not only allows you to save every month in a disciplined way but also help you ride through ups and downs of stock market.
Its simple, invest some portion of your monthly income in good companies without timing the stock market and you will definitely get rewarded in long run.
Just take care of Basic Principle of Investing in Equities:
1. Invest in stock market with a long term view (3 - 7 years or more).
2. Invest in companies which are fundamentally strong with scalable business.
3. Follow disciplined approach by Investing regularly in equities.
4. Build a diversified portfolio by investing in small & mid cap companies.
5. Avoid frequent buying / selling of stocks, Its trading not Investing!
6. Review performance of your holding companies at least once a year to decide whether to buy / sell or hold.
