Mathematical Logic vs Value evaluation - It' s personal, It's different

Give vs Take,weighing the difference, real situation.

Currently own a VIVO V3 handset and looking to buy new one,were preference is Rs.40000 to Rs.50000 new handset.

If I buy say 40 thousand worth of some handset, Vivo V3 buyback price is less than 5000 (best case) and If I buy iPhone 13 the exchange price offered is original buy price of Vivo V3.(as the picture says -15000+3000).

What should be the buy?

#decisionmaking #financialplanning #couplesgoals #financialfreedom #financialplanner

This is real life situation.

Mathamatical logic vs Value evaluation.

Each one of us has a different lens of evaluation to see and define 'Value' and that is were different people will decide differently.

Crypto , Bitcoin Acceptance

Bitcoin or cryptos growth & acceptance is based on mix of ever reducing trust on formal currencies and looking for newness/alternate.

Advisors and investors who have born, grown & educated on regulatory environment have less acceptance on this new asset class or currency.

I intend to become billionaire, rich and have $500 billion of wealth

"I intend to become billionaire and have $500 billion wealth.

#elonmusk, #billgates , #ratantata , #richardbranson , #stevejobs are some of my idols and I want to become really rich in next 20 years. How can I become one".

I got received this question on #quora.

Having a #wealth target is a superb thing and nothing wrong, but one needs to understand what goes behind it to have that number.

What I have understood, read, learned and experienced -

A- Intent behind that number (if this intent or purpose is not there, this number even when achieved will keep shifting) (this defines values and principles)
B- Attitude
C- Habit
D- Discipline
E- Madness to achieve the purpose (not that figure)
F- Taking and having positive people along and their expertise

There are few other things as well, but I think, I can put this as core.

Intent or purpose will largely define your relationship with money, which is very important.

Money if ignored, and/or if it becomes the only top thing, I have learned nothing can be achieved (money may be).So understanding in aware manner that right balance and then keeping that balance is very important.

Look 'inside' the profit numbers, before investing

Dear Investor, look at company results from business profit and financial profit, before celebrating and taking investing decision.

Let me explain.

'Profit' is directly related to either or both of the three - (for simplicity, out of multiple)

A- Sales increase
B- Cost reduction
C- Asset sale

Cost reduction, includes-
A- raw material cost
B- interst rate cost

Cost reduction in raw material is mostly temporary either (unless some longterm actions were taken in the past, like backward integration) , and interest cost reduction could be cyclical and so again temporary.

A company may even choose to sell a factory unit, a subsidiary, a brand etc and monetize and then book the profits,which forms as profit from asset sale.

It is not that it is not good and I am not saying the profit figures are adjusted or rigged, I am saying ,If you are looking for longterm investment, the business needs to be majorly growing from sales revenue and higher and consistant the % of profit growth from business, better it should be to invest for longterm.

Disclaimer - profit is just one of the various factors in the process of evaluating and making buying or selling decision and not the only one.Since for most investors profit growth % or numbers and even reports headlines highlight the same, I have expressed my views in investors benefit on profit growth understanding.

Financial planning cannot and should not only consider logic and formulas

Most of us will find this illogical.When I first saw this, even I found it so.

Life isn't all about logic, it also involves reality, emotions, situations, people, time , understanding, experiences, priorities and creativity with ultimately understanding perspectives, putting it in place and finding & applying suitable solution.

Financial Planning, Social Media and Clients data privacy

Decision to stop what's app as official medium of advisory or documents transfer was tough,but we decided to do that a year back, when most of the social media platforms were changing their privacy policy and terms and conditions.

Because of ease of transfer and daily communication channel, it was most difficult for clients to accept and apply, but am glad to share and thank each of our clients, that now 100% of our clients document share and advisory has moved out of what's app.

What's app is just for information (nothing personal) and reminder to check the official medium.

Data privacy, has always been, is and will always remain our prime focus.

We understand that clients share everything with us which is private, confidential and personal which they have never shared ever, especially all with one single entity or person.

Do share your views in the same, would be glad to know more.

Congratulations, Growth in Vaccine Administered numbers have out paced Nifty 50 growth in same period

 If you are excited by #nifty50 growth trajectory in last 10 months this calender year, kindly check #vaccination doses administered in India growth chart, it is mind boggling.

With the kind of population, the level of distribution and scale of operations that too home manufactured doses, I take this opportunity as proud Indian to thank all the health workers and professionals who have worked relentlesly and selflessly to administer at this pace, not to forget the conditions in which all of these workers have made it happen.

Also the suply chain management experts and service providers the government functionaries, the local doctors and medical services professionals, the logistics and warehouse ,the medical professionals who rose to the #pandemic situation to conceptualise the systems and needs and not to forget #indian #citizens who has seen all, but followed with patience and trust.

#history has been created and our country has set an example for the world.Remember, in May and June during crisis situation of 2nd phase of lockdown, lot of national and International media and experts published reports of India taking 8 to 12 years and here we are at this stage in 10 months from zero to 1 billion.

All is not done, pandemic has not gone but trust and hope has been double built.

Proud Indian.

How is a investor suppose to read and utilise reports?

Company 'APQ' recent profit reported 5% growth QonQ while company 'SGH' recently reported 12% growth YonY.

Same reporter, same reporting media, similar industry report, reported this way differently.

How are you as a investor supposed to understand this?

Reading media reports , experts quotes and understanding and utilising them, is experts job as -

A- no standardization
B- at times biased (either behaviourial bias or technical bias or business bias)

Growth vs Value - practically explained through your own portfolio

Your Portfolio insights.
If your portfolio has fallen more than 0.75% today, then it is most likely you are holding growth and/or momentum stocks
if has gone up or remained stable or fallen less then 0.75% today, then most likely you have value stocks in your portfolio.

Practical example or illustration to help understand #momentum stocks and #valueinvesting.

P.S.- Kindly note 'most likely', and it is high chances that I am right, but there are likely for execptions.

Cost of having a car , Not just EMI

And lot of car owners think #EMI is the only thing that they pay as cost of having a car.

In my experience 50% of car owners travelling within city, can use kali peeli taxi, autos, ola, uber, metrocar, and such hired or rental car services and save minimum 40% of EMI outflow and if one starts sharing or pooling it, saving could be as high as 60%.

What is the primary reason to buy and own a car?

As such, not to forget, car is a depreciating asset ,meaning year or year, day by day, it's value goes down and always decreasing.

Is the much awaited Market correction coming?

US inflation @5.4% and India inflation @4.4% is no comparission, but gives some good indication that  FED liquidity is going to get withdrawn sooner, and as early as next month.

Only thing may stop is employment data which is still not improved,but supply disruptions due to employment and labour market is world over,so may be accepted for short period.

So I believe withdrawal of liquidity is given, only the pace of withdrawal is to be watched out for -higher the pace and amounts, higher the global disturbance.

What does it mean for investors like you and me?

With liquidity withdrawal the money will move out from risk assets and investments and will get invested into safe and fixed returns/interest products and assets.

Index at Record highs, should have no major relevance for investor

'Record highs', has just headlines relevance and it's importance should stay and end there and one should not get too exhubarent nor too disturbed with such headlines and discussions.

What matters is 'Value', for investors to stay put, buy, sell or add.

Do you find value or does 'highs' impact your decisions in any way?

How to read market trend and not wait for official inflation and interest rate data,without any financial knowledge?

You don't need to be market expert to read the trend.Why do you want to wait for RBI to declare inflation rate and trend and then take a call on investing accordingly?

One just needs to be aware enough on-

A- is your own spending in new list of items adding or increasing (variable/unknown like vacations, repairs, irregular purchases of clothes/accessories/household items etc.)?

B- is your outflow on regular fixed spending increasing (known like milk, electricity, society maintainance, school fees, cable, internet, vegetables/grains/pulses,travel expenses etc)

C- while talking to near and dear ones are there such spending also increasing? (colleagues, friends, relatives, society members etc)

If your own responses to all the above 3 are 'YES' , the the inflation is already moving up and RBI will take 1 to 3 months to report the same.

This YES will also give indication that the banking interest rates will also start moving up in 3 to 6 months.

Keep it simple.
No need to be expert in reading markets and market technicals.

Happy Investing.

Specialised services - Awareness - are you ready ?

How many understand and do this?
We are shifting our residence and for that we called few movers and packers.

Interestingly, one of the movers and packers visited and said, "Sorry Sir, we are specialised in office shifting and we only do office shifting work,we do not take residence shifting work".

I asked him intriguingly, "what is the difference?"

He replied, "Sir, what is unique about residence wares shifting is that it involves lot of perishable items, fridge, washing machine, oven, cupboard, wardrobe, utensils etc. which needs to be handled, packed, transported, opened and re set differently, which our man are not trained and used of.We only do services which we are doing day in day out, so that our staff is trained speflcifically to handle that and also practice that."

How many service providers by themselves are aware of their own specialisation and offer and only do that?

How many consumers of services understand #specialist services and work with specialists only?

Specifically speaking about financial services, there is lack of this understanding even within financial experts not to mention poor investor.

If you are a #ca , #cfa , #MBA, #cwm , #cfp Life insurance advisor, mutual fund advisor, #mediclaim services provider, #equityresearch advisor, #estateplanning services provider, #loans services provider, share your specialisation and let us spread awareness on financial services specialisation and if you are consumer of such any specialised services, share what speciality services you availed of.

Mentioning specialised groups with intent to let rhem know and the practicing specialist share their area of specialisation. (share in brief and no links please).

Lets see how many  specialised services are at offer and let the consumer understand expertise.

Know your self to better manage financies

You are expected to be educated about so many things, including financial markets and products.

-One needs to be aware and educated in Mutual funds.

-Read more on type of financial advisors

-Research before buying term insurances

-read and compare before buying mediclaim insurance

-will oil rise above $130 again?

-How can you ignore political changes?

-keep an eye on what is happening in china

-what did tehran do yesterday? did they drop any bomb?

-is there any war like sutuation any where?

-Is there any liquidity pull back decision

-Is gold better or equity?

-is there opportunity in buying real estate?

-know on loan terms and conditions before availaing loan amd keep in touch to know on changes

-be aware of tax changes and reducing tax impact

on and so on and onn......

In the race to know the world and others, somewhere no one told to 'know yourself first'.Somehwere you as individual is lost in 'knowing the world'.

'Know self first and always'.

'You are the most important person you will ever know'.

Financial decisions will be better aligned rather then lost or scattered.

Knowing self, keeps you in control of money,rather than money controlling you.
