Comments on: Wary of stocks, Indians cling to safe havens http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2012/07/30/wary-of-stocks-indians-cling-to-safe-havens/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: skanekar http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2012/07/30/wary-of-stocks-indians-cling-to-safe-havens/comment-page-1/#comment-24202 Thu, 02 Aug 2012 04:36:14 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=6053#comment-24202 I dont agree with the conclusion. Here’s why: Over 20 years Fixed Deposits have beaten the Sensex. In this calc, FDs were renewed every year while Sensex was buy-and-hold. If Long term FDs were used then the returns would have been higher. Its always easy to take any period of time to prove the case. If you take 2009 -2012, Equities were the worst off despite heavy FII inflows in 2010.

Also, “Investment” does not take into the account the vast Gold Reserves which Indian Households have which beat any fiat currency denominated investments.

Quarterly reports are missing. One firm was found to be book cooking. In sort reliable data on firms treating share holders well was missing.

Since reports where India was growing economy I was looking into suitable ADRs but was not welcome.

And they understand the vicious nexus between Promoter, Fund Manager and Operator(Manipulator). So we should keep away from Equity and keep safe our Saving. Equity is the worst vehicle for investment. Its safe to keep our Investment in Fixed Instrument only
