If I told you that if you had invested Rs. 10,000 in Wipro in 1980 and held it till now it would be worth Rs. 630 crores…it would be that. Perfectly accurate, but completely and totally useless piece of information.

This is also called Financial pornography.

It can excite you, but serve no purpose other than exciting you WITH useless info …and leave you no better than where you started.

Wanna see one? here it is…but before that please remember to comment:

  • how was the info useful?
  • what will you do with the info?
  • will you have the guts to do a sip in one of the funds?
  • what %age of your money will you commit if at all

Please, please comment on the blog and not on the FB post…thanks..
