Today is a Great Day to Buy These 7 High Quality Safe Stocks

Every Indian should worry about what happened in the RBI.

These are the words of ex-governor Dr Raghuram Rajan. And they at least assure you that you are not alone, as an Indian and as an investor, in worrying about what the crisis at the most respected institution in India, the RBI, entails.

The large shoes of all the past RBI governors, right from Dr Bimal Jalan to Dr Raghuram Rajan and the most recent Dr Urjit Patel, are not going to be easy to fill.

To be fair, we can only hope that an owl (as Dr Patel liked to call himself), if not a hawk or a dove, with as much spine as the past governors, takes office at the central bank.

In the interim, you can expect the markets to be volatile. And nervous foreign investors may want to temporarily leave the shore.

As I write this, the state election results are being announced. Clearly, it's making the markets nervous. No doubt, there is a lot of negativity in the air.

We Hope You Haven't Bought This Book From Amazon

One of our most popular books, Equitymaster's Secrets, is available on Amazon for Rs 1,450…

We'd say it's cheap even at that price, considering it contains a wealth of secrets and wisdom from our 20+ years of successful stock-picking.

But as an Equitymaster reader, you shouldn't have to pay that much for this book…

Which is why, for a short while only, we're giving away virtually free copies of the latest version of this book to the first 500 readers to act.

Here are the details.

November was a good month for the market but the sentiment now has turned down again.

And that is the crucial point I want to make, dear reader. It is times like these that throw up great buying opportunities in safe stocks.

Look at this chart...

Safety Beats Growth in 2018

I am a firm believer in safe stock investing.

Clearly, safe bluechips have outperformed risky mid and small caps this year.

But here's the most important thing, dear reader...

If you could travel one year back in time and show yourself this chart, would you have been surprised?

I can honestly say that I wouldn't have been surprised to see this chart a year ago.


You see, I was expecting a correction last year. I didn't know when the correction would exactly happen.

But I knew it was getting close.

So I started warning my subscribers. Here are some of the pieces I wrote...

But when the market proved me right, I didn't sit back and rest on my laurels.

  • We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful. - Warren Buffett

Keeping this in mind, I started recommending carefully chosen safe stocks to my subscribers.

Since February, when the market correction started, I've recommended nine safe stocks to my premium StockSelect subscribers, with a 2-3 year holding period.

My mantra is 'safety first'. I strongly believe the key to making money is to not lose it in the first place.

If the margin of safety in a stock is not high enough, I don't recommend it. As simple as that.

This principle is the cornerstone of the 74% success rate of StockSelect.

My premium subscribers know that on the last Friday of every month, they will receive a safe blue-chip stock recommendation they can count on for the long-term...even bet their retirement on.

So why am I writing to you about this today?

I believe we're on the verge of the greatest wealth creation event in India's history.

In fact, I believe the Sensex is going to 100,000.

This may seem hard to accept today, but I believe the market has laid the foundation for Sensex 100,000.

Investing your money wisely in safe stocks could multiply your wealth over the next decade.

But you can't just buy any random stock and hope to get rich. It doesn't work that way.

I believe, in this volatile market, you need a balance of growth and safety.

Safe stocks will offer you that safety. They're the most tried and tested bluechips in the market. They have sound fundamentals and are backed by good management.

All you need to do is buy them at the right price and hold on.

It's really that simple.

But do you know the best part?

The Indian stock market is currently offering you a rare opportunity, to buy safe stocks right now. And you can't afford to miss out.

The last few weeks have given me the opportunity, to recommend more stocks than I had done in entire 2018.

The last time I got such an opportunity, was February 2016. Back then, I recommended the stock of Hindalco, that more than doubled in less than 6 months!

I want to guide you safely and successfully in your wealth building journey. I want to make sure that you're buying the right stocks at the right prices.

So, I've put together a special report for you, dear reader. This report contains my list of the top 7 safe stocks to buy right now.

Of all the stocks that you could buy in this market, I've picked the seven best safe stocks that offer the ideal combination of safety and profit.

My premium StockSelect subscribers would be aware of this report - 7 Stocks To Profit From This Market Crash.
