Who are you?

Jan 13, 2004

In India, a democratic country that believes in freedom of speech, every Indian citizen has a view. And when it comes to stock markets, it is often very difficult to change the perception. As someone rightly said, there is nothing called long-term investor and short-term investor, but there are informed investors and uninformed investors. We believe that there is one more class, apart from these set of investors. The trader or punter or the sattawalla.

Can you spot YOU?
  Informed Investor Uninformed Investor Trader/Punter/Sattawala

Investment horizon is 3 to 5 years Short-term works Less than 1 day
Buying strategy Regular investor when market is close to peak What strategy?
Fundamental analysis Works Makes sense, but… Who cares? What is the target price?
Company management Extremely important Indifferent Does not matter
Technical analysis Not my cup of tea Seem to work at times What is the target price?
Research Report is A balanced scorecard What is the target price? What is the stop loss?
