Sep 26, 2014

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

Can Alibaba founder rival Buffett's 'greatest investor' crown?
Jack Ma may not be a very renowned name among Indian investors. But the roaring success of Chinese company Alibaba's IPO, the biggest ever that Wall Street has seen so far, has put the spotlight on Jack Ma.

Share buybacks- a bane for investors?
What's your opinion on firms buying back their own shares? Of late many firms are overdoing buybacks to artificially prop up share prices. And what more? Many have gone to the extent of financing the share buybacks by debt.

The following piece from The Economist is definitely an eye-opener in this regard. To get an insightful view, we recommend you to have a read. (Forbes)

That's what holds true with stock markets and finance. The beauty of this domain is that nobody can ever go wrong here. Also rarely anyone is forced to admit: I was wrong.

Here is an interesting piece picked from "The Motley Fool" that throws light on one such distinct perspective which we believe you would thoroughly enjoy reading. (Fool)

What is the secret to investing success?
Inactivity strikes us as intelligent behavior....claims the Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett. The strategy based on inactivity has a significant impact on returns. A simple buy-and-hold strategy can work wonders for your portfolio. However, completely neglecting your portfolio has its own downsides too. Periodical re-balancing portfolio assets is equally important.

Have a read of the following article picked from "Daily Finance" that will give you a clear insight into successful strategy into investing. (Dailyfinance)
