Hi Rajesh,

Thanks for all the excellent posts that i have recieved from you on the india stock market.No other blog gives such organized feel that your gives.

I feel like i am reading a newspaper column instead of reading a blog,there is nothing casual about your blogs,it is all so formal,serious,informative and highly useful.

Hope you will keep updating us with your stock recommendations,your research and all such things.

You have that soothing effect which very few have,i have never seen a panic kind of blog from you,the markets have seen the levels of 9000 and almost 15000 in the last year but not once i have seen you excited.All along you have been a guide a torchbearer a "sarthi",and i am obliged to have such a "sarthi" who like krishna has no aspirations from his followers.

Hats off sir!!!!!

Disclaimer:I have invested in stocks recommended from rajesh,yes bank,karnataka bank,reliance,s kumar nationwide,gitanjali being some of them.And yes i am seeing huge profits,leave that and i know and believe that my money is for sure in trustworthy stocks,and i know the moment these stocks are out of order rajesh will beware me,as always.

Thanks alot rajesh ji,

Amitesh.

Hi Rajesh
I can see lot of praises for you and it is well deserved as I can make out from the quality of your blog. I had one question on mutual funds. Is it better to apply in a NFO or after the units are listed ? It would be great if you could guide me on this.

thanks
Murthy
