Over to you
You must have got a lot of confusion after looking at the 35 stock list given above. You must be thinking that where to invest your money. Well, I am not going to add any comments on the stock selection by the brokerage houses. The view mentioned are their own and I don’t have any say on that. However, I must share a few tips that help you in making the right selection of the stock.
- Fundamental of a stock is very important. You should select fundamentally strong stock for the investment. To find out fundamentally strong stock you need to check the financial of the stock. Apart from that, you should check about earning potential and performance history of the stock.
- You should diversify your portfolio. Make sure to invest in stock from multiple sectors. Putting all your money in one basket would be risky.
- Consider the price and valuation of stock before buying a stock. Always buy a stock that is undervalued or low in price. You can stock price to earnings ratio or P/E to know the stock is expensive or cheap.
- Don’t rely too much on analyst recommendations. Many times recommendations given by analysts may be bias and not proper. You need to check the credential of the person recommending the stock. This may be difficult for you.
“May this festival of lights brighten up your life with happiness and prosperity.”
“Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali”
