Stocks picked using this strategy have

one investor's wealth a whopping 4,905 times!
Now here's how you can use it to grow your wealth too...
Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair.
Some people have so much money that they don't have to worry about it. They are free to choose how they spend their entire lifetime, even if their investments crash.
Maybe you are one of them, too.
But if you're not quite there yet, mark our words - we are about to show you a way to 'safely' create tremendous wealth over the next few years so that you will never ever have to worry about money.
In fact, over the next few minutes, we are going to unravel in front of you a simple, yet foolproof investment strategy that has made millionaires out of several small investors.
The strategy we are going to tell you about could easily be called the World's Most Profitable Stock-Picking Strategy!
After all, it has helped one investor multiply his wealth a whopping 4,905 times over a 46-year period!
In other words, this simple investment approach would have turned an investment of Rs 10,000 in 1964 to a whopping Rs 4.9 crore at the end of 2010.
Or for that matter...
So, let us introduce...
The Greatest Investor Of All Time
Let's face it. There are literally thousands of people out there in the world and in India trying to invest just like Warren Buffett. But only a few are actually getting Buffett-like results.
And it's no wonder why so many people want to emulate Buffett.
After all, this legendary investor is, without doubt, the greatest stock market investor of all-time and has consistently generated stupendous returns for a very long period of time...
... like multiplying his investment in stocks such as -
But before that, let us offer you...
Our Portfolio Recommendation Service
Based On Warren Buffett's Principles!
In short, our mission through ValuePro is to identify 12-15 stocks over a 2 year period by following Warren Buffett's time-tested investing principles.
Through ValuePro, we will help you identify companies which could see their stock prices multiply 4 to 6 times over the next 5 to 10 years.
As Buffett has done, ValuePro will enable you to achieve amazing returns by identifying businesses...
In a nutshell, we will be identifying companies that are doing simple businesses that can be easily understood, have consistent earnings history and sustainable growth path, are managed by honest and competent people, and whose stocks are available at attractive prices with an adequate margin of safety.After all, Buffett has made his entire fortune - US$ 50bn at last count - following these very principles of investing.
And he's achieved tremendous success with not one, not two, but several stocks that have multiplied several times over a number of years.
Like his investment in Coca-Cola, where every 100 dollars he invested in 1988 now stands at nearly 2000 dollars...
Or simply put, an investment that has multiplied 20 times in around 23 years!
Data Source: Yahoo Finance
See, it's not so easy identifying simple and sustainable businesses like Coca-Cola, but then this is what we will be striving to do for you through ValuePro. After all, we have done this in the past as we'll soon show you.
And this isn't a one-off case either...
Washington Post, the newspaper company that he started acquiring in 1973, has till date multiplied his money a whopping 73 times! And this is keeping out the significant dividends that the company has paid out over these years.
Data Source: Yahoo Finance
ValuePro will emulate Buffett's mantra of buying stocks when they are selling cheap as compared to their true worth.
Yet another of Buffett's investments that turned extremely successful was 'Gillette', the shaving products major.
And Buffett's simple reasoning to buy Gillette can be summed up in his own words, 'It's pleasant to go to bed every night knowing there are 2.5 billion males in the world who have to shave in the morning.'
Not to mention that Buffett multiplied his investment in Gillette almost 8 times in 16 years.
See, these examples of Coca-Cola, Washington Post, and Gillette validate the basic tenet of Buffett's strategy -
Invest in companies you believe will provide long-term investment value, rather than investing in fads or 'hot' themes that may be profitable in the short run, but are likely to run out of steam in the long run.
These stocks could belong to any category. I mean they could be blue-chips, or midcaps, or something else.
In a very similar way, the core of ValuePro will be to identify a portfolio of a few 'such' stocks for you that will multiply your money several times over the next ten years.
Let us make it even clearer...
To help you make your investment decision, wouldn't you want to see it through the eyes of Buffett?
Now, you obviously can't call him up to get his advice. But you can be a part of the ValuePro.
No second-guessing, no listening to vague advice, and no more worrying about whether you're making the right decision.
In short, ValuePro will be the 'next best thing' to asking Buffett himself if you are making a good investment decision.
Yes, it will be really that simple!
With ValuePro on your side, YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO...
But how could this be? How could something so simple produce such phenomenal results?
See, we fully agree to what you must be thinking right now.
Believing and following any principle, even if it is proven and simple, calls for absolute faith in it. And we do not expect you to believe us without getting fully convinced about our claims.
In fact, you must be itching to ask us many questions.
Your Question # 1. "How will you identify those above-average stocks?"
Answer: Simply put, if the company is doing well and is managed by smart, honest and visionary people, eventually its stock price will reflect its inherent value. As you will come to know over the next few months, we will devote most of our attention not in tracking share prices, but in analyzing the economics of businesses, while also assessing their managements.
See, our answer is not plucked out of thin air. In fact, in the past, we have identified profitable stock ideas for our subscribers ... and that is what brings us the greatest happiness.
By recommending the 'right' kind of stocks, following the 'right' kind of investment principles, we have seen our subscribers multiply their money several times over the past few years.
Take for example Titan, which we had recommended in July 2003. We asked ourselves - what could be a simpler business than selling watches and jewellery? And we had a difficult time answering this question. Apart from its simple business, we also believed that Titan had all the qualities to become a wonderful business over the long run. The stock was also trading cheap then, with its price being just around 0.4 times its sales per share.
Our conviction paid off... and till date, Titan has multiplied 62 times since our recommendation.

After restructuring its business, Voltas has not looked back and those who acted on our recommendation then have multiplied their money almost 28 times till we recommended a SELL on it.
Data Source: Trend
Investors who acted on this recommendation then have multiplied their money almost 19 times till we recommended a SELL on it.
Data Source: Trend
Over the years, these stocks have generated huge returns for investors who bought them then, and have had the patience to hold on to them over the years.
There are similar other examples that we can talk about... like Tata Power, which has multiplied around 11 times since our recommendation of January 2003...

Data Source: Trend
Answer: Over the next 2 years, we will identify a portfolio of 12-15 stocks based on the investing principles of Warren Buffett.
The important thing to understand here is that given that we will be searching for the right kind of opportunity available at the right price, there might be times when we would have nothing to recommend.
Similarly, there will be times when given the market's mood, as we saw for the whole of 2008, we will find several opportunities to recommend to you. We will then recommend stocks in a bunch.
In the months when we don't have any buy recommendations for you, we will "cover" other stocks which are not a good buy yet, but could be attractive once their price reaches the levels we expect.
Plus, we'll also give you updates on the stocks we recommend so that you're well-informed about what's happening with these stocks.
Your Question # 3. "How much allocation do I make towards each of your recommendations?"
Answer: It will be advisable that you invest equal percentage of money in each stock that's recommended as a part of the portfolio.
Only such a concentration will enable these stocks to have a really meaningful impact on your portfolio.
Your Question # 4. "How long must I hold those stocks?"
Answer: There will be no hard and fast rule. While selling a stock from the portfolio for taking advantage of a better opportunity is advisable, as a general rule of thumb, the idea will be to hold the stocks for somewhere between five to ten years.
"Why Should I Do This?"
Okay, let us put it the other way - what could be the opportunity loss for you for not practicing ValuePro strategy and otherwise following the herd?
See this chart...
Data Source: Berkshire Hathaway's 2010 annual report
While the S&P 500 multiplied by around 63 times during this period, Berkshire's book value multiplied 4,905 times!
Simply put, it's a difference between turning every Rs 100 to:
In fact, in this modern age, it simply isn't possible to beat the market as Buffett has done so successfully over his life.
So we do not want to promise you the moon.
And at the same time, it's very much possible that we could make a mistake once in a while too.
However, what we will promise you is that by being part of ValuePro, you could generate tremendous wealth for yourself over the next few years...
... by becoming an integral part of the process that aims to emulate Buffett's investing principles and take advantage of the wealth-generating opportunities that are available here in India.
"How Capable Is Equitymaster To Do
What Buffett Has Done?"
You know, many investors in the US have become wealthier by...
One, buying what Buffett buys, and/or Two, investing in the stock of Buffett's holding company Berkshire Hathaway.
Not only retail investors, there are several fund managers in the US who do exactly this.
But then copying Buffett's investments in India isn't possible for the fact that Berkshire, Buffett's company has never bought any Indian stock.
Second, you cannot easily buy a Berkshire stock sitting here in India to benefit directly from Buffett's investing philosophy.
So how do we plan to help you earn Buffett-like returns sitting here in India recommending Indian stocks? And do we have the pedigree to do that?
We appreciate your questions.
To say the least, our philosophy all these years has been to recommend stocks that pass the strict evaluation tests as practiced by the best investors in the world - from Benjamin Graham, Peter Lynch, and John Templeton, to of course Warren Buffett.
And we have done this with immense success for our subscribers... and that is what brings us the greatest happiness.
By recommending the 'right' kind of stocks, following the 'right' kind of investment principles, we have seen our subscribers multiply their money -
62 times in Titan Industries over a period of 8 years;
28 times in Voltas in almost 8 years;
26 times in M&M over a period of 8 years;
16 times in Thermax over a period of 8 years;
11 times in Tata Power in 8 years.
See, we will be fooling ourselves if we tell you that we have been 100% right in all our recommendations all these years... we have had our share of mistakes.
But most of the times, our subscribers have benefited enormously from our recommendations.
And all these years of precious experience is now what we bring to you by focusing on the learnings of Warren Buffett, one of the great investing gurus we have talked about and have followed intensely.
And so that you know we are not someone who doles out stock recommendations and watches from a safe distance, we'll be putting our money where our mouth is.
we too will be investing along with you!
We are so confident of these principles that we'd also invest some of our own money in the stocks we recommend to you through ValuePro.
Yes, you read that right. We will be investing Rs 100,000 in every stock that we recommend to you through ValuePro.
And to ensure you have the first go at them, we will be buying the stock 10 trading sessions after we recommend them.
So simply stated, we'll be on the same side as you.
ValuePro is your (and also our) chance to practice sound investing principles and generate tremendous returns over the next few years... just like Buffett has done.
You won't believe how simple the process we follow in the ValuePro will be until you try it.

Also known as the 'Bible of Value Investing', Security Analysis by Benjamin Graham and David Dodd has now completed 75 years since its first publication way back in 1934, sold over a million copies since then and helped generations of investors in the process.
Here is what Warren Buffett has written in the foreword for this edition of this magnum opus --
"There are four books in my overflowing library that I particularly treasure, each of them written more than 50 years ago. All, though, would still be of enormous value to me if I were to read them today for the first time; their wisdom endures though their pages fade. Two of those books are first editions of The Wealth of Nations (1776), by Adam Smith, and The Intelligent Investor (1949), by Benjamin Graham. A third is an original copy of the book you hold in your hands, Graham and Dodd's Security Analysis...Together, the book and the men changed my life."
So this is one book every serious investor must definitely read.
This book, which also includes a CD of the classic Second edition of Security Analysis, usually costs Rs 895/-. But if you subscribe to ValuePro through this offer, you can grab it absolutely FREE.
