Seven investing mistakes you should avoid
Jun 19, 2014

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

What did Buffett really mean when he said that?
It's impossible to be a long term investor without having come across many of Warren Buffett's insightful quotes on investing. While his words of wisdom are often witty and easy-to-understand, investors may misunderstand his message if not understood in the right context. Here is an interesting article that unravels the real meaning behind many of Buffett's very famous quotes. (Fool)

Why you should not try to imitate Warren Buffett..
Quite naturally every investor on this earth wants to imitate Warren Buffett's investing style for obvious reasons. However, noted investor Jeremy Grantham states otherwise. In fact, he went on to say that unless you are a genius like Buffett picking individual winners is next to impossible. Instead, he preached one simple style to make money over the long term. Read on to figure out which style it is and whether you can profit out of it or not. (Forbes)

Is Asia stabilizing?
The second quarter of 2014 has proved to be buoyant for Asia's top companies. Thanks to the change in political landscape in India and positive signs from China, the business sentiments among Asian companies have touched the highest levels. But is this buoyancy short-lived? Are the sentiments euphoric and not in sync with ground reality? To get answers to many such queries of yours, click the link below from Reuters. (Reuters)

Can we get rid of energy subsidies?
The practice of subsidizing prices of basic fuels has been prevalent across nations since decades. While the intentions behind such actions stand noble in the initial phase, they tend to have disastrous long-term consequences. And such distortions have been witnessed largely in the emerging markets. Moreover, subsidy policies are many-a-times misused as political gimmicks especially to boost voter's bank. Well, the emerging markets have woken up to harsh realities and are re-considering energy sector reforms. But getting rid of subsidies is a task that is next to impossible. Why? Find out this and more in the article below picked from "The Economist". (Economist)
