Equitymaster's Flagship Stock Recommendation Service Celebrates its 10th Anniversary

Mumbai - (27th December 2012) - Equitymaster, India's leading independent research initiative is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its flagship Blue Chip stock recommendation service - StockSelect.

Launched in January 2002, StockSelect is arguably India's first independent stock recommendation newsletter service dedicated to individual investors.

Since its launch, StockSelect has provided unbiased and exhaustive research on fundamentally strong blue chip stocks for individual investors.

In line with Equitymaster's goal of empowering investors with quality research to make well-informed investing decisions, StockSelect has successfully helped investors generate solid wealth from some of the safest companies like Tata, L&T, Infosys, Asian Paints, Bharat Forge and SBI.

When asked about the idea behind launching StockSelect, Rahul Goel, the CEO of Equitymaster said, "It gives us satisfaction that StockSelect has made a positive difference in the way investors go about investing in the stock markets. And the fact that members have generated wealth over these 10 years by acting on opinions given via StockSelect is an endorsement of our solid research process. "

Sharing the sentiments of Mr Goel, Mr Nishank Mehta, a subscriber of StockSelect added, "I would want to acknowledge the fact that Equitymaster is ACTUALLY REALLY GENUINE in its research, SELFLESS and not giving recommendations with a HERD mentality. Like some magazines and news channels do."

With a success ratio of 80.9% over these 10 years and well over 10,000 subscribers, StockSelect continues to be one of the most popular services of Equitymaster.

When asked about the future of StockSelect, Mr Goel further added, "We have come a long way and I would like to thank all our subscribers for their unwavering support. However, we still have a long way to go and I assure you that each and every member in my team will strive hard to ensure that our subscribers continue to benefit from research that is completely independent, and honest."

Equitymaster is and remains committed to being 'The investor's best friend'.
