Coping with stress?

1. Recognise the fact that stress is a part of life and your body will automatically prepare itself to manage it better. Don’t panic.
2. Believe in yourself: Most of the times we are stressed not because of a thing, but due to the perception we build in about the thing. Change your perceptions. Remember that you are more powerful and channelise your positive energy to fight stress.
3. Anticipate Stress: Many times the stress is caused by repeititive reasons. Analyse the reasons causing the stress and manage yourself in order to avoid that situation.
4. Think positive: Do your best in whatever you do and the results will certainly be motivating.

Diversifying your Investments

There is an old adage “don’t put all your eggs in one basket”. It applies very well to the field of Investments. Diversification is one of the most important elements of successful investing. It is a very comprehensive term and is possible in various ways. It involves spreading your investments across many different asset classes. The right diversification strategy depends on factors such as how much wealth you have, your age range, your risk profile and many other factors. The following are the ways through which we can achieve diversification in our Investments:

1. Identify various areas for Investments. For example Equity shares, Debentures, Govt. securities, Bonds, Mutual funds, fixed deposits, Insurance products etc.

2. Identify your Risk appetite. The more Risk you are willing to take, the more will be your exposure towrads equity investments. If you are in the age range of 25-30, it is recommended that you take higher exposure to equities.

3. Follow a disciplined path for investing your money in the stock markets. Don’t invest heavily in a single stock. Keep your investment spread in stocks of different sectors, putting more weightage on the sector that is currently performing.

4. Instead of investing your whole money in one shot, invest at different intervals to gain the cost averaging.

5. Set an exit target for each stock and exit when that target is reached. Don’t be greedy. The realisation from the exit stock should be invested keeping in mind your investment in different sectors.

6. If you are a beginner and do not have much capital and knowledge to invest, choose the IPO mode.

7. Give time to your Investments. Keep track of the happenings in the stock market in general and your stocks in particular. Churn your portfolio if you feel you don’t have the right mix. Avoid excessive churning.

For more on Diversification Strategy…keep visiting this blog. This blog is dedicated to make you a successful investor capable of taking an informed and rational decision relating to your investments rather than simply relying on rumours.

Happy Investing!

Smart Investor : Asset Allocation

Asset allocation is the process of strategically spreading your money across a variety of asset classes and investment styles. Just how important is asset allocation?
Instinctively, you may think that the individual securities you own drive investment performance. But according to one prominent study, asset allocation was singled out as the largest determinant of a portfolio’s success.

Modern Portfolio Theory
Asset allocation is just one component of Modern Portfolio Theory, which was introduced in 1952 by Nobel Prize winning economist Harry Markowitz. In summary, Modern Portfolio Theory suggests that the risk of a particular security should not be looked at on its own, but rather in relation to a portfolio as a whole. It also explains how risk-adverse investors can construct a portfolio that optimizes expected returns given a particular level of market risk.

The study analyzed data from 82 large corporate pension plans with assets of at least $100 million over a 10-year period beginning in 1977 and concluded that asset allocation policy explained on average 91.5% of variation in total plan return.

Bank on the Banks

The banking sector has got a big boost today with the cabinet lifting caps on voting rights in Banks. The cabinet has also given RBI powers to prescribe the cash reserve ratio and the statutory liquidity ratio.
Currently there is a 10% limit regardless of equity held. If parliament approves the cabinet decision, voting rights in banks will be aligned to shareholding

This has led a spurt in the prices of the Banking Stocks with many banks hitting the upper circuit.

Both Private and public sector banks gained . but private banks took the lead.

Catch the action...!!!

Investing - What this means ?

Any time you invest, you are putting something of yours into something else in order to achieve something greater. You can invest your weekends in a good cause, you can invest your intelligence in your job, or you can invest your time in a relationship. Just as you do each of these with the expectation that something good will come of it, when you invest your savings in a stock, bond, or mutual fund, you do so because you think its value will appreciate over time.
