Archan,

There is nothing wrong in keeping your powder dry if P/E valuations are very high. Find a 5% savings account and let the money keep up with inflation until you are ready. Then you can buy on the dips as happened recently.

Bhaijaan, As high as mkts are, some stocks still will go up while some will climb down. There is always money to be made/lose in the market :)
Few stocks that I am interested in, with time frame of 3-6 months are

Orient Refract
Rico Auto
Garware Ropes
Wanbury

I have few of them but on very small quantity so planning to replenish my stock.

Sold IndusInd bank today @756. Made a killing of 400% in 4 years.
Am planning to buy SBI with this money once SBI is below 300. Also on Radar is Vanati Organics and AllCargo which are next big star on the horizon.

Can one put some kind of an alarm such that a SMS is sent to me once SBI goes under 300? I sold Axis bank at 420 a couple months ago and now its at 480 level. Grrr..

selling a 25%+ compounder like IndusInd for a slow grower like SBI with huge NPAs might not be such a wise idea. IndusInd is a multibagger even from this price.

Oil at $40 Possible as Market Transforms Caracas to Iran

If oil goes to $40, which firms stands to gain the most? Around the work transportation and utilities have had double digit rallies recently..

You think IndusInd still has lot more to offer? I thought it is now a pretty expensive stock.

IndusInd is indeed expensive and will remain expensive. This is one stock you can stick to for the next 5-10 years. It should safely multiply 10-15 times in 10 years, which is good enough for me. But that is my style!

Kya Yaar! I will buy INDUSIND once again but only if it comes down to levels of 700.
SBI still is one bank that I want to have in my kitty for investment.

To be honest, today after split, even ICICI was looking attractive :)

Why would any scrip become "attractive" after stock split?

If I cut a pizza into six slices instead of four slices, will it change the quantity of pizza?

Splits and reverse splits affect buying thresholds. For example, a stock with a high price per share might get lower retail interest because it's individually priced high such that retail buyers don't buy them in as much volume. On the other end, stocks effect reverse splits when their price/share is too low, hampering institutional buyers, whose trading algorithms often require a stock to have a minimum price, as a qualitative measure. But yes, seemingly indiscriminate splits may not have much effect.

My understanding was that if I have Rs 100 to invest and a share costs Rs. 100. I can buy one of it. If its value increases by Rs. 1, I gain Rs. 1.
If the same scrip is split into 1:5, I can buy 5 for my Rs. 100. If the value increase by the same Rs. 1, I earn Rs. 5 for the same amount of investment.
Pretty simplistic. However, gyani jan may please explain how it might be difficult to get the Rs. 1 increase when the scrip value is Rs. 20 instead of Rs. 100.

All else being alike, a Rs.1 gain on a Rs.100 stock should mean a 20 paise gain on the Rs.20 stock post 5:1 split. If you're seeing Rs.1 move on the latter, you're benefitting from more aggressive price movement on the latter, which may be because of a rush of retail interest in the cheaper per-unit price.

Doesn't WBuffet rubbish this. He has repeatedly refused to split his stocks to prevent speculators from piling on. Last check the BRK.A share is worth a scrumptious $225,000 per share! Heh. 4 shares will make you a millionaire.

Though there is a BRK.B running at ~ $6,000 or so IIRC.

Theo, that's correct. Buffett was against stock splits, but he did give in through the cheaper BRK.B shares.

No. BRK.B was split again (at the time of BNSF merger I think). It is "just" $150/share now :D

He was forced into doing it because some smart guy ran a mutual fund just to buy BRK shares and charged 1% or 2% management fee. That has pissed off WB and he created B shares to put them out of business

My MFs are doing well touchwood. In three months I'm up by 27k. Losing some on stocks. I guess that's why the managers expertise is important. Shorted Airtel and Phoenix lamps yesterday. They seem sick to not be able to do half decent in such a good market. If I put that cash I the MF it will likely make up for the loss and then some in a year.

Making a lot of money in the last 12-15 months is not a big deal :-)
In fact next 4-5 years (at least) a lot of money can be made in Indian markets.

The real challenge is to handle bear markets and watch your portfolio bleed almost every day :-)

In my portfolio, One of the best stock in the Indian market, HDFC Bank went down by 53% of its purchase price in 2009 :-)

For now, sit back and enjoy the ride....

Guru jan, I'm looking to shuffle my portfolio from debt to equity . This is a ULIP and I can just allocate a portion to equity fund. The total amount shifting will be ~ 80 K. My outlook is to maximize profit for a 3-4 year period.

The market is close to its peak. Should I enter equity now or wait for dips ?

Saar, I don't have the jigra for that. That's why before Modi ji came to the fore I never even thought of putting my hard earned money out there. For now it is Namo Namo. Later, let it all go into debt and FDs if the mafia returns to power.
