Over past 37 years stocks generated 18.5x more wealth than FD
Why our parent’s failed to create wealth, and what we can learn from their mistakes
Between 1981 -2017, the BSE Sensex produced an annualized return of 16.2% compounded. Rs 1 Lakh invested in the SENSEX on 1981 would be worth 2.59 Crores by 2017.
My father, preferred bank deposits as he equated stocks to gambling, and completely missed out on the bull-run. 1 Lakh invested in FD in 1981 is worth around 14 Lakhs in 2017 after tax (25%), which barely beat inflation.
Wealth accumulated by staying invested in FD over past 37 years is only 5% of wealth created through stocks.
My mother was wiser when it came to capital allocation & preferred gold which gave 9.4%, before tax. She squirreled gold jewellery for children’s wedding and holed them up in bank lockers. Her investment advisor was my grandmother who didn’t know that investing in GoI gold deposits instead of jewellery could have earned 2.5% more, tax free, instead of an annual locker maintenance expense. And all this this could have reduced capital requirements for any wedding significantly, 38% by this calculation.
Yet, my parents were not alone. Even today, only 10% of the population invests in stocks & mutual funds as per a recent SEBI study. Economic growth aside, the potential of Indian equities due to lack of participation of domestic investors alone could be humongous.

Financial literacy is poor in India, despite Internet & business news channels
In today’s age of Google, anything we want to know is a click away. When it comes to investing, talking-heads in TV & free reports of stocks offering 10-15% upside by full-service-brokers, supplement Google. With Google & talking-heads replacing grandmothers, investors are now more confident of their investing abilities.
However, this confidence is misplaced as financial literacy in India is poor. 76% of the population is not financially literate, according to an S&P survey conducted in 2014. And despite high market returns, the following statistics for US market might come as a surprise.
Investors have historically failed to create wealth despite high market returns
- Number of Equity Mutual Funds that failed to beat the market over 10 year period is 74% or more.(1)
- Average Equity Fund investors performed worse, returning of 3% annual gains against 13% for the markets over 20 years’ period ending 2004.(2)
- 80% of the stock market newsletter publishers fail to beat the market returns over long periods of time.(3)
- More than 80% of day traders lose money in a typical 6 month period, with only 1% succeeding in making predictable profits net of fees.(4)
- In 2007, Buffett famously placed a million dollar bet, challenging Hedge Fund industry to put together a portfolio that would outperform S&P500 index fund over 10 years. He won by a wide margin. (5)

How does it work?
Immediately after subscription, you will receive an email from us with a link to furnish certain financial details and participate in a short behavioural quiz that will be used for risk profiling & subsequent planning. Based on your response, you will receive your Personalized Reports based on your chosen plan.
Upon successful payment you will also receive access to your personalised dashboard immediately. You need to select the relevant subscription plan from the dashboard by clicking ‘Enter’. This will take you to the ‘List of Reports’ page for the selected plan.
On the List of Reports page, you will find a list of stocks supported by detailed research report that you can review for investment.
2nd month onwards, you will start receiving new stock reports about once every month, till the maximum number of reports based on your chosen plan is reached. While we would prefer to maintain a defined level of periodicity in publishing the reports, this may not be always feasible due to market conditions. If such a situation arise, your membership will be automatically extended until all the reports committed for your plan are delivered.
Investment Objective & Suitability – what to expect from the reports
Investment objective is to beat market returns over long term. Therefore, stock advisory service will be suitable for long term investors only.
Each report will contain a detailed analysis of the company’s business and investment rationale. You can choose to invest once you are convinced with our arguments. Representative reports can be found here.
Companies identified in this section are those that are expected to grow at 20-25% over next 2-3 years, unless otherwise stated. It is also expected that the stocks of these companies are available at reasonable valuation, so that their market capitalisation follow the earning trajectory under normal market conditions. Assuming a normal market, therefore, some of these stocks can potentially double in 2-3years or so.
