– Markets are in a turmoil, you should be investing in ‘safe’ assets that give guaranteed returns like ppf, nsc, bank fixed deposits.

– Do not sell all your equities, but do put some money in debt instruments, it is safe

– Do not worry about sector specific investments, but the sectors to be avoided are auto, infrastructure, etc. You should be investing in sectors like FMCG, Pharma, banking – because they will do well even in a slow down

– It is risky to invest in equities, so it makes sense to stop your SIP investments – remove it when the markets have recovered.

-real estate seems to be doing better than the equity markets so do take a long term view and invest in real estate

– averaging in good stocks makes sense, so if you have bought a good share at a high price, buy more of it, so that the average cost comes down.

-take a short term view of the market and invest in a one year FD..by that time the markets would have recovered…and you can buy equity.

Good show, congrats anchor…

  1. I don’t understand many analysts’ reluctance to averaging a stock.
    They say don’t average, it is like throwing good money after the bad.
    But I feel, if Reliance (or some x-stock) is a good buy at 1000, surely it is a better buy at 700 ! Or is it ?

  3. Banyan Financial Advisors

    Amazing advise – which keeps on changing based upon market situation. The best one which I like is “take a short term view of the market and invest in a one year FD..by that time the markets would have recovered…and you can buy equity” !!!!

    By that time Equity would not longer be attractive – all gains would already get priced in.

  4. Subra sir, I don’t understand why averaging is a “good” advice? Adding to what shrinivas wrote above, doesn’t SIP also do the same? Why not buy the good stock at a lower price if you have some extra cash to invest for long-term?
