  1. Nice summary Abhishek.. Great effort. Keep it up, it will be very useful for many new and intermediate investors.

  2. Hi abhishek, I have got some shares of sintex and was looking at your analyses of the same. it does look like a companies that can be a good bet.
    I was looking at your book shelf and was wondering if you have a pdf copy Margin of Safety by Seth Klarman.as i could not find the copy over the internet and the print one is really expensive.

    1. Send me your email id and I can mail it across to you. But the pdf is actually freely downloadable on the net on many sites.

  3. Sir..Please share some tips how to analyse a stock

  4. Sir I have noticed a common thing among investors of India like you In many blogs are not suggesting books on valuation ,any reason....

    1. There are a lot of good books on valuations that one can read. However the challenge is that, in my opinion, valuation is more an art than a science. So, like you cannot learn to play the guitar by reading about it, you cannot learn valuation by reading about it. You need to have some basic frameworks in your mind and then just go ahead and start applying them in as many situations as well.

  5. Hello Mr Abhishek..!! Can we meet? I wanted to learn the ABC of investing from you? Will you be kind enough to impart your teachings for a fee? Kindly contact me over mail on razeshborad@hotmail.com or on +919830085892.
    Thanks & Best Regards
