1. Franklin India Bluechip fund has performed badly. Look at the last quarter.

Remember this advice sometime in 2007….and as usual I smiled it away. In fact the EDITOR of a financial mag told me ‘Hey this fund is doing well in my portfolio…why is such a story being carried (somewhere else, thankfully!!). I said, ignore the advice.

2. “Hindustan Unilever has lost its pricing power. It is losing market share. There is no use in having a company with a fantastic brand recall – sell it”.

A friend’s Dad with about 100,000 shares was worried. I said, ignore the advice, change the channel. This was in 2008 or 2009 – not sure.

3. You can never make money in an industry where the government controls the input price and selling price. Avoid Fertilisers – the FII will NEVER buy it, so it cannot go up AT ALL. Very, very famous TV loving investor/broker/fund manager.

Look at the performance of Coromandel International.

4. Investing and waiting for the market to improve / get good returns is history. You should trade in and out of the market.

Obviously given by a MD (broker of a big brand)…

Please ignore. Most market intermediaries are rewarded on action. You reward YOURSELF only if there is growth AND the charges are less.

    ITC (some, TG!) on a very famous brokerage research head’s reco– he is now the India head. 🙂
    GNFC/ GSFC on similar logic.

  3. This Fertilizer advise is true for Chambal, RCF, Godavari and Nagarjuna. Among many there is only one success story in Coromandal.

    Same with Franklin India Blue chip. In comparison with it peers it lagged and hence it was critisized as like any underperforming stock.

    There was one post did by Jago investor on HUL stock performance. Upon 10 year comparision, it concluded that the returns are at par with FD and nothing to excite about it.

    Looks to me as too much bashing of TV advisors.
