  1. Very True…nowadays some have also started making fool by sending bulk messages to people say try for a week for FREE. And some websites are sending reports what they have recommended in last few years and what is the result of that. But they never tell in which recommendation they went heavily wrong.

  2. Hi Hemant
    A nice collection of ads to fool people. Unfortunately there is no shortage of fools. I am sure some people must have been duped by these ads.
    The following remark was made by a person while discussing the negative returns of equity mutual funds this year.
    When even God can not give you fruit in one year how can a fund manager deliver extraordinary returns in one year?

    • Hi Anil,
      But these guys are crazy – today I got a mail (I don’t how they get our email ids)
      Subject: 4.83% + 1.8% Profit- Oct 13 Sample Trades
      Hi !
      We have successfully demonstrated that using strategies can be “Safer” and has a potential to provide “High Returns”
      Today’s “Basket Trade” current valuation of sample strategy suggested at 9.20 am, is Profit of 7925/- for today. (rates around 11.13am)
      Profit of 4.83% in barely 2 hours initiating sample investment strategy.
      See you & me can understand that this is not possible but what about layman 🙁

    • Hi Sandeep,
      I don’t have any idea about NIFTYSURESHOT but to me it looks similar to what I have mentioned in article.

  3. Very nice article Hemantji. Another regret after reading this :). I actually paid couple of thousands to a website called few years back. Some of their recommendations worked, while others failed. Mostly failed, so I am guessing that they guessed it too. Now, I feel better to stick to some renowned names like Infosys, TCS, Colgate, P&G etc for long term equity exposure or simply stick to good Mutual Funds. There is no free lunch, but we keep looking for it 🙂

  4. How about in day trading, don’t u think the prediction is more controlled there, following technical details…

      • Could you please tell me more. I thought fundamental analysis and technical both are necessary and important to judge a stock’s behavior.

        My knowledge is zero here and trying understand as much as possible. I appreciate your efforts so far.


    MY monthly SIP PORTFOLIO IS,
    HDFC EQUITY —Rs2000
    ICICI FMCG ———— Rs 2000
    RELIANCE PHARMA ——– Rs 1000
    What change is required in my portfolio.

  6. Hi Hemant,
    My SIP portfolio
    DSP BR TOP100- 2000
    HDFC TOP 200- 2000
    RELIA PHARMA- 1000
    Is it ok?
    I want to add 8000 more to it, any changes u suggest. Can i continue this for 5-8 years or should it be reviewed for performance? Recently i visited ICICI to increase my SIP amount, he suggested me to invest in ICICI pinnacle super(which has 70% equity & 30%debt) with lockin period of 5-10 yrs. he said it will give highest NAV and approx tax free return of 16-18%. Is it safer option than mutual fund with better returns than FD for 10 yr investment? or shd i enhance my mutual fund amount only..

    • Hi Chavadi,

      Dont go for ICICI pinacle super? It is an ULIP. Dont mix your investments with your insurance?

      If you want to increase in your savings, increase in your existing funds or add HDFC mid cap oppurtunies fund to your portfolio for longterm returns.


  7. A couple of years ago, in response to an SMS, I invested some money in a stock and I am still applying Burnol to my burned fingers!!

  9. Dear Sir ;
    Should one opt for ( On his own) for A group shares or midcap / or samll cap ONLY as a strategy for long term Investments , looking out to volatilityin The stock markets ,

    • Hi SS Dahale,

      If you have expertise in selecting the shares, you can go for the group as you have listed. But as a long term strategy, you should have a diversified portfolio comprising of different categories then investing in one.
