Need advice on TCS buyback offer, open till 31st May. TCS CMP is INR2,507. Company is offering to buy back shares at INR2,850. With so many headwinds for IT industry (automation, mass layoffs, difficult to get foreign visas, clamp down on outsourcing etc), should I participate in the buyback offer?

I have 30 shares of TCS @ INR1078. Any advice/insights welcome.

Personally, I wouldn't sell. Indian economy is improving and TCS P/E is 19 odd, whos to say it cant land some larger domestic orders. Its nothing overpriced and its virtually debt free.. unless you need the money, keep it for a longer haul.

My next guess is any correction will be offset by the huge inflows from domestic MFs. Last year, FIIs pulled out several billion of dollars but there was only 1 perc drop since MFs took up the slack. A lot of people have started SIPs so cash is still flowong into equity.

Market will in general be on the upward path until 2019 and when Modi wins it will go up further. I think 2018 will be the year when Market will see local maxima before 2019 elections.

Depends on what you define as rationalization. You can buy when low, true, but when will that be?
Market is driven by perception and future value gets baked into P/E. So unless Pappu becomes PM, things will remain on an uptick bar the occasional drop. WW events are anyhow impossible to predict.

Any thing above PE ratio 15 is bubble territory , NIFTY PE is today 25 if those charts tell me right.

If you think you can time the market and have appetite for risk then go ahead and invest in stock if you are a swing or day trader , IF you are a long term investor ( 10-15 yrs ) then no issue , else stay safe and invest in MF.

It is not a India specific phenomena , We are in Bubble Territory Globally thanks to Unconventinal Monetary Policy and no one knows whats awaiting in weeks months and year ahead

The best way would be to look online. Its a little technical. I am very flexible on minimums, but i would say 5 lacs or so should be adequate. But email me eben if its lower, we can talk. My product acts as a diversifier from stock markets and mutual funds and has potential to make money in years stock market does not do well.
