Hidden Treasures (Small Cap Research) - Reviews

Equitymaster subscribers review our small cap stock recommendation service, Hidden Treasure...

Significant number of shares purchased on your recommendations have given me profit which were redeployed again on fresh recommendations made by you..

- Shashidhar B Shetty, Mumbai

Initially I invested in two of the stocks recommended by you. It was unbelievable, the very first day I earned at least five times of the subscription I paid. As informed, I invest for long term benefits, especially as part of building a Corpus Fund before retirement.

- Sarat Kurup, Calicut

Prior to Hidden Treasure, I was looking at a flood of investment advises from various sources such as Money Control, ICICI-Direct etc. I was basing my investment decisions on these recommendations.The Hidden Treasure subscription price was attractive and the actionable recommendations came at an easy to manage monthly interval.6 to 7 of the recommendations have been a hit. These are acceptable odds to me.Good value for money.The Hidden Treasure team is doing an excellent job and service to the subscribers. My compliments to the team.

- Mohammed R Khan, Chennai

Before subscribing to Hidden Treasure, my investments were based on business magazines and channels. But I wanted to get actuals facts and figures before making investments. Hidden Treasure has been a good decision-making tool for investments based on long term trends instead of market favourites. Most of the companies that I have invested in, have given me good returns if I hold them for at least 2 years despite the current market dynamics.

- Conrad D Fernandes, Goa

After subscribing to Hidden Treasure, I can do things in a more planned way. Life has become more systematic. And, I have made good profits over a period.

- P Achukuttan A Menon, Kochi

I had never invested in stocks.I subscribed to Hidden Treasure to explore high untapped potential in small cap stocks.I invested same amount of money in all Hidden Treasure recommendations. In some stocks, I got early profits.I learned disciplined approach in investing from Hidden Treasure.

- Nitin Rane, Dahanu

More than ninety percent times money is gained. Most of the times, target price achieved.

- Anil Panat, Thane

Hidden Treasure is a trusted service. My life has changed far better since subscribing to Hidden Treasure. I’ve made reasonable gains on many stocks recommended.

- Srimathi Ramachandran, Chennai

156%, 53%, 70% gains in some of the stocks.

- Jaspal Sanndhu, Thane

Hidden Treasure has added value in terms of exposing me to new opportunities available in the market.Brought to notice many new companies to me. In one of the stocks recommended by Hidden Treasure, I made 3 times money till date. It was a very good find. Hidden Treasure service is a great way of exploring new companies and understanding them.Many small cap shares were not even known to me earlier. However, after going through the Hidden Treasure I find I have missed lot of opportunities in my earlier years. I am now 65 years old and I have been in the market for the last 30 to 35 years!Now I am confident that more opportunities exist in small caps and midcaps rather than large caps.I am still holding many shares recommended by Hidden Treasure.

- V Venkataraman, Chennai

I used to invest on hints received from TV channels, print media, my broker etc.I had faced the uncertainties & losses sometimes, but never had windfall gains. Later I had a short course in Technical Analysis. The profitability increased but still had occasional losses by not going by the rules. This was because lack of knowledge of Fundamentals, and emotional attachment with the company.Hidden Treasure is a service that studies well the fundamentals of a company. The financial evaluation is totally unbiased. As and when the share price is having no more potential to generate increased profits, a sell advice is given.I had never seen any analyst giving a sell advice.By applying Swing Trading principles to scrips bought under Hidden Treasure, I earned phenomenal profits.

- Vijay Phadke, Pune

I was scared of investing in smaller companies. I had been reading about it in your newsletters and decided to give it a try. I am more comfortable with your recommendations. The entire portfolio is doing very well.

- Pankaj Varma, Panchkula

After subscribing to Hidden Treasure, I started understanding market from totally different angle. Profits have started coming on regular basis & most important I started to know market in detail. Now I’m having many successes with Hidden Treasure. I must admit that initially I was not confident about your research as I had previously tried many others. Since last year I have started your subscription & in some stocks I was just observing your recommendations. But this year, I will do most of your calls as my faith in your calls(research) have increased.

- Mrs. Manisha Shelar, Pune

I was lucky to acquire both money and knowledge, in my association with Equitymaster. More than 90% of picks have resulted in gains. I earnestly advice all my friends to subscribe to Equitymaster.

- Anil Panat, Thane

My entire portfolio is doing very well and I am very happy with your recommendations. Equitymaster has worked for me. Give it a try!

- Pankaj Varma, Panchkula

After my association with Equitymaster I have started understanding the market in greater detail and make good profits on a regular basis. Not only is the success rate on your calls very good, you are also approachable and helpful regarding any doubts about the market.

- Mrs. Manisha Shelar, Pune

I have been a customer of Equitymaster since 2003 and have been very happy & satisfied with their services, commitment and passion to give value to their customers.

- Ramachandran Venkataraman, Bangalore

I have been with equitymaster for nearly 20 years - happy to have made a lot of money - Really investor friendly and independent analysis. Compliments to Research team.

- Dildar Singh, Thane

Very good unbiased recommendations. All the reports of recommendations are in depth and very good. Overall when one see the site one can easily understand the fundamentals of investing. Very useful. The main thing is equitymaster can be trusted. Overall my experience has been very good

- Raghunathan Srinivasan, Mumbai

I am very satisfied with the services offered by Equitymaster. If I have to pick one very positive thing than that would be unbiased recommendations on stocks. The new tool of valuation using ERM is very helpful.

If I can ask for one specific intervention or better service, it would be when should one really book the loss, if we get some sort of an alert to really act on sharp declines that would be helpful to us.

- Parthiban A, Bangalore

I am member of Equitymaster since 2008. Time & again they have provided unbiased reports in all market conditions. Their reports always ensure that we investors take an informed decision with rationale thinking rather than being swayed away with the market sentiments.

- Shailesh Mistry, Bangalore

I have been investing in the market since the last 5 years and have been a lifetime member of Equitymaster since the last three years. I have found their advice to be quite unbiased. One good thing about them is that they are constantly trying to bring in new services via research and analysis which is helping me to get an objective view on the market. I hope that they bring about more expertise in the mutual fund market also. I trust them because they have the transparency to go back and review the performance of their recommendations.

- Prashanth Nair, Kerala

Though I am in the markets since last many years as investor and no doubt money can easily be made during good times, I realise the importance of a good partner during bad times, such as the current phase. I fully trust Equitymaster's Wealth Alliance's impartial & conservative views during all phases/cycles of the market and they can be fully relied for a fruitful hand holding not only during the current bad phase but throughout. I respect them for their impartial and unbiased views.

- Surendra Pai Vernekar, Goa

I have been following Equitymaster for last few months and have started investing conservatively in this uncertain and volatile market. I have done this based on their most informative and comprehensive research and analysis reports. Like the words "morning shows the day" my investments, mostly long term in nature, have stated bearing the fruits already. Being a retired senior executive from a nationalized bank, I find myself very confident that long term investments based on the coveted research reports of Equitymaster, coupled with their updates on economy, both national and international, are simply marvelous and confidence generating. Every prospective investor should extensively go through the financials, ratio analysis and risk profiles of the companies before investing and avoid investing on cheap market tips.

- Anjan Chaudhuri, Kolkata

Everyone can learn a lesson from master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. He avoided cover drive keeping himself in best of his nerves and the result is hardly hidden from us. He achieved summits of success turning a maestro striker of the ball in cricket world. Likewise, the 'Long Term Investment' lesson of Equitymaster should always be borne in mind while choosing stocks from suggested ones for at least 2/3 years with great patience & click at right time for the Snow Ball to fall in your lap.

- R S Rathore, Jaipur

Please never give in to company pressures.
It is this unique and honest opinion of your team which makes me continue to have trust in your team.
Hence exemplifying the qualities of integrity as well.
Kudos to your management and company objectives.

- Franklin Antony, Trichur

Real, practical tips for investors to achieve long term goals.

- S. Ramachandran, Bangalore

The views expressed by Equitymaster is unbiased and without fear or favour. India needs more of such persons now more than ever and it is our duty to support the tasks undertaken them. I wish all the very best and pledge my continued support at this juncture.

- Chellapa K N, Kuala Lumpur

I have made my money by following Equitymaster.

- Mohammed Yahyabhoy, Mumbai

My best wishes to Equitymaster. It is most reliable and trustworthy research House. As a 10 plus of Subscribers, I have experienced their letters are the Best reported ones with comprehensive, verified and complete coverage of subjects and companies. As we all have experienced hundreds of companies disappearing in thin air with the life time saving of small investor and Government doing nothing to save the Investors interest, we all should encourage EquityMaster's efforts, so that we become more informed investor and save our hard earned savings.

- Vinodkumar Maheshwari, Bhusawal

Equitymaster is comprehensive, trustworthy, is replete with rich and well-intended analysis. It may go wrong - but no malefides only bonafides intentions of serious research are loud and clear as the church bells. I respect their analysis with healthy skepticism.

- Bhushan Akerkar, Mumbai

I value the research provided by Equitymaster and it helps in my decision making as they also follow value investing.

- Abhay Bhagat, Mumbai

Very conservative and unbiased views. Very good for long term investments.

- Sadashiv Rege, Mumbai

Have been reading Equitymaster since early 2000. They have grown a lot and I have seen maturity in their analysis.

To understand Equitymaster's real approach towards wealth generation one has be give them at least 3 years.

If possible Subscribe to all of their services and become a real takes time...there is no short cut in equity market.

- Vipin Chauhan, Delhi

You are teaching people how to invest and make their future secure by investing as per the appropriate risk appetite in various asset classes.

Over and above that now you are guiding them by exposing them to such wonderful experiences like listening to masters of the markets.

Great job. Keep up the best work.

I Like the effort put in by Equity Master to raise the profile of stock investing for more people. Keep up the Good Work.

As you always Say Long Term is the Way to go - Stocks are NOT a Sprint , they are a marathon.

- Rohan Lawrence D'souza, Bangalore

I like your analysis, guidance and suggestions which you provide on a very regular basis. Subscription to your services is worth much more and if someone follows the advice, he/she is sure to create wealth. All the analyses are backed up with intensive studies. Great Job!

- Vijay Chopra, Lucknow

I don't know about Warren Buffet, but I am happy that I joined Equitymaster.

I am learning many new things about investing and have started to see my portfolio grow after that.

- Subhash Puri, Delhi

Until last year I was skeptical in spending money to avail financial services. Somehow, I did not trust anyone after 2008 crash. But then I decided to take the services of Equitymaster for two reasons:

Firstly, there are not just "BUY" recommendations. Subscribers are also advised when to Sell. It takes guts to advise readers to sell the stock for which buy was recommended, even if it means selling on loss. This speaks a lot about the commitment of Equitymaster towards the financial well-being of its readers and subscribers.

Secondly, for every service that you offer, there is also an advice on who should really take this service. This shows the commitment of Equitymaster towards giving best services to its readers.

And today after subscribing for StockSelect, Hidden Treasure and ValuePro I don't regret the decision to avail financial services from Equitymaster. I now have a healthy portfolio and am confident that I will achieve my financial goals in due time.

- Gaurav Srivastava, Pune

Your Hidden Treasure is a beacon of light in these troubled times. I am happy I took the right choice.

- P. S. Sathyamurthy, a Hidden Treasure Subscriber since 2008


Equitymaster has really shown its skill in finding the PICKS much before others do.



- Satya Pal Gupta, Delhi

I really thank you for starting something like Equitymaster and I feel I am really late in being associated with you. I would have been saved from lots of mistakes ....but well ...certain things take place only when they are destined to.

- Nishank Mehta, Mumbai

In 2007, Equitymaster was probably the only research house which will give most of HOLD or SELL recommendations rather than BUY reports and everyone knows what happened after that. I feel to be proud subscriber of equitymaster seeing again that you still are not afraid of giving the right opinion irrespective of market moods. Great Job!!!

- Deepak Aggarwal, Gurgaon

I have invested in large caps and small caps based on your recommendations. I made handsome gains and also had incurred losses during market crash. Moreover I had profited during market bottoms and crashes by judiciously making use of those excellent buying opportunities based on your reviews and recommendations.

Singular main benefit I have gained from your association is that I have lost less money by avoiding fad investments and investing at higher valuations. Further I am gradually learning the benefits and safety of value investment from your reviews, articles and recommendations. So I am quite satisfied with your service and fully confident of achieving my long term gains based on your recommendations.

- Ramesh Somasundaram, a Hidden Treasure Subscriber

Honest opinions and ability to admit mistakes in recommendations if any are made

Balanced view including bearish predictions as well following through on the recommendations and advising investor of time to sell - many other services only give Buy recommendations all the time and leave it to the investor to guess the exit price. I am happy that many times you come back and tell us that there are no stocks to buy since valuations are not attractive rather than just recommend stocks to keep subscribers happy. Even keeping quiet or not doing anything has been advantageous for me on many occasions.

Taking a stance on every economic issue / aspect especially in articles such as 5 min wrap up - most other websites and business news providers provide only disclaimers stating that the views they publish are those of experts and not theirs and that the user must take the opinion at their own risk. Right or wrong, it pays better to take a viewpoint and stick to it rather than appear wishy washy, non-committal or politically correct all the time - here Equitymaster scores solidly over nearly all other investment advisory firms

I feel very safe that Equitymaster takes the pain to pay visits to companies they recommend and do a detailed investigation of the management and their businesses

For me the benefit of your recommendations is immense since being in the US and away from Indian markets is a blessing in disguise. As Warren Buffett would put it "you make money by inactivity" or by investing methods that will fetch you returns even if the stock markets were closed for the next 5 years.

- Shankar Ramani, Chennai

Honest opinions and ability to admit mistakes in recommendations if any are made

It's been 5 years since I have been a subscriber to all the products of Equitymaster (EM). EM's "power to people" approach is what made me to associate with them initially. EM's honest, independent and consistent research on stocks is worth appreciating. In short I must say it has been a "rewarding" experience.

- S R Samratt, Bangalore

First of all I would like to appreciate the stock selection mechanism of Equitymaster. I am a subscriber of Equitymaster since 2009. Also enjoying handsome returns since then. I made this decision of joining Equitymaster in one of the tough phases in my life and fully got paid for the right decision. I am happy investor and proud to be associated with Equitymaster. I encourage the Mid community of retail investors to join such an advisory services to be active participants in Indian Stock Markets and NOT to run after quick money.

- Pankaj Deshkar, Pune

Equitymaster has made me more and more richer every year since my association with them. It has given me more wealth than my professional career. Convey my best wishes to all 52 members at Equity Master.
