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
- Parthiban A, BangaloreI 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.
- Shailesh Mistry, BangaloreI 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.
- Prashanth Nair, KeralaI 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.
- Surendra Pai Vernekar, GoaThough 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.
- Anjan Chaudhuri, KolkataI 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.
- R S Rathore, JaipurEveryone 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.

- Subhash Puri, DelhiI 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.
- Gaurav Srivastava, PuneUntil 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.
- P. S. Sathyamurthy, a Hidden Treasure Subscriber since 2008Your Hidden Treasure is a beacon of light in these troubled times. I am happy I took the right choice.
- Satya Pal Gupta, DelhiI am a subscriber to STOCK SELECT, MIDCAPSELECT & HIDDEN TREASURE.
Equitymaster has really shown its skill in finding the PICKS much before others do.
I KNOW THAT IT IS NOT SO EASY FOR AN ANALYST TO 'PICK UP'AHEAD OF OTHERS ALWAYS.
BUT YOUR RESULTS INDICATE THAT THE TEAM WORKS HARD.
- Nishank Mehta, MumbaiI 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.
- Deepak Aggarwal, GurgaonIn 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!!!
- Ramesh Somasundaram, a Hidden Treasure SubscriberI 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.
- Shankar Ramani, ChennaiHonest 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.
- S R Samratt, BangaloreHonest 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.
- Pankaj Deshkar, PuneFirst 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.
- Dr C V Ajmera, RajkotEquitymaster 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.
