Building your own snowball...
Jul 22, 2014

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

This could be your worst investing enemy!
Greed, they say, is an investor's worst enemy. It takes away sanity even from brightest minds and makes them take decisions that they would have avoided even when intoxicated. But it is certainly not as dangerous as people deem it to be. This one factor which, as the following article discusses, not only confuses investors but also induces them to take wrong decisions. Read on to find out which factor we are referring to and whether you too are exposed to it or not. - (The Motley Fool )

Building your own snowball...
The power of compounding is the eighth wonder of the world. This is what star fund manager Mohnish Pabrai has stated many times. Broadly, this would work in two ways. One with the company reinvesting its profits back into the business which earns above average returns. And second is by it paying out dividends, which an investor can deploy back into stocks (of high quality businesses) thereby allowing one's money to work for him. The author of this article writes about the power of compounding and why it would be a good idea to start building a "snowball" at an early age. Read on to know more... (GuruFocus )

A checklist to avoid human misjudgment in investing
As investors, we are quite familiar with investment checklists. Most of these focus on financials. While these checklists provide a good start, they often fail to take into account the psychological aspect of investing and human misjudgment. In this interesting article, the author shares a psychological checklist provided by investing legend Charlie Munger and explains how to work with it using a real life example. Read on for the details.. (GuruFocus)

The unconventional way of looking at events
When a crisis hits, or an event induces panic, what is your first reaction? The following interview discusses how master investors are often marked by their unconventional view of important world events. It shows how such a view is more often opportunistic and shrewd rather than panic driven, and how having such a perspective can be very enriching for your wallet. (The Crux)

Taha Merchant

Taha Merchant (Research Analyst), is extremely passionate about investing. Sharpening his approach to stocks for over a decade now, he hates forecasts and stock market chatter, and cherishes independent, logical thinking. Conservative to the bone, his biggest attraction to the market is the opportunities it offers to jack up returns while decreasing risk. Whenever the market crashes, you'll likely find him grinning from ear to ear. Buy cheap and sell dear is his mantra. He's constantly on the prowl for deep bargains. Nothing makes him happier.
