Tips for Investment

There are many tips on investment that one could consider before investing or during the time of investing in a particular investment instrument.

Here are some that I found on one blog, :
  1. “Of the billionaires I have known, money just brings out the basic traits in them. If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars”, quoted Warren Buffet.
  2. Look at the fundamentals of the company and check its previous track record.
  3. Find out the management of the company whether it is professionally run or not?
  4. What are the plans, prospects and expansions it is undertaking.
  5. Does the company have good will and brand image in the corporate world?
  6. Are there any related and unrelated diversifications, acquisitions or mergers etc?
  7. Closely observe the promoter holding and track record of its dividend, EPS, P/E ratio.
  8. Does the company have any other sister concern companies? Is the company financial sound or not?
  9. Look at both the fundamental analysis and technical analysis and check for its consistency and complementary.
  10. Read various business magazines, journals and newspaper before investing.
  11. From Mutual Fund Fact sheet find out the investment pattern and you can learn the percentage of the investment and the companies the Mutual Funds have invested.
  12. Pick up the scrips that have consistent growth and appreciation as well as giving handsome returns.
  13. Avoid penny stocks.
  14. Don’t overtrade as overtrading kills. Ultimately it is the broker who gets commissions against each transaction.
  15. Don’t speculate but invest.
  16. Never borrow and invest. Cut the cloth as per the coat.
  17. Treat volatility as your friend not as a foe.
  18. Always look at the margin of safety.
  19. Above all, read between the lines.
