Basics on shadow banking
May 28, 2014

Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

Time to dump gold?
Investors, not just in India but even globally, have vetted their risk appetite in recent months. The change in political and economic scenarios seems to have prompted a change in the appetite for risk. The result being that the 'safe have' appeal of gold has paled. Gold prices are down more than 6% since they peaked for the year in mid-March. But the return from the metal is still positive for 2014 thanks to the blistering start. Hedge funds have cut their net bullish bets on gold by nearly one-third in the past two months. Does that mean it is time for retail investors too to dump their gold? Read on to find out.

Garbage in, garbage out... this is the key reason why discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis is dangerous. But that doesn't mean it is entirely a useless tool.
