First advice given by Rakesh Jhunjhunwala is to invest in stock market like gold or real estate. When we invest in gold or in real estate, we never think about return as we know that it will defiantly give good return in days to come. We quietly sit on this investments, but when it comes to stock market investment we react in different manner.

We challenge our own investment decision. Although we have taken informed decision to buy fundamentally strong stock, we start checking performance of stock from date of purchase. Downward movement of this stock make us anxious. We start thinking that whether we have done mistake in selecting this stock.

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala advice that invest in stock if you are absolutely convinced about it. Once you invest in stock don’t get prejudice with temporary events. Stay with stock for long-term. Long term investment always pays.

It reminds me very good saying about valuable and physical assets

-Facebook the world’s most popular media creates no content.

-Alibaba, the most valuable retailer has no inventory.

But, I want to understand, for holding large stocks, should it be prudent to keep the shares in opening account (demat/trading) with banks or others.In case of Mr. Jhunjhunwala, how is he operating? Has he secured direct holding license from SEBI like other big house….Please reply…
