What are the things that an investor should not do when rupee depreciates?

Though prediction of rupee is very difficult for an investor to understand but abnormal fluctuations of rupee certainly upsets the plan of any company, thus affecting the prediction of price movement in any stock.

Since we are in a phase where INR is continuously depreciating against USD, it is better to avoid such stocks where import content is very high or the companies which are net importers.

Investors should avoid investing in companies which are heavily dependent on imports for their raw materials.

So, the companies where the import content is much lesser than their exports or the companies which have a pricing power to pass on their costly imports to their customers should be identified to invest.

Investors should invest in such companies which are export oriented, where the depreciation of rupee will be beneficial to them

What is not impressive is the fact that the advantage of all this modern infrastructure and systems has mainly gone to four intermediaries, the regulators and exchanges themselves besides, of course, the tax department and brokers. The traders at large were poor back then and have still remained poor. Only a handful of them have become successful in this journey, that also in investing, not trading. Success percentage in trading is hardly 1 per cent. 
Why? Because, it’s not in our DNA. We learn things three ways: by birth when it comes in our DNA; in our childhood through school…

If you follow certain principles in stock market, then the worst situation in market is the best situation to invest- Written on 6th June 2012

It seems to be the beginning of a new bull market. Economy turns around after six months of turning around of stock market. Market reacts to any situation before the economy.
1990 was the worst year in Indian recent economy history. In 1990 we were 270 billion USD economy. But although our economy has grown four times since then, the phase of 2012 is compared to that of 1990. Today the Indian economy is more than 1 trillion USD. Savings rate in India is dropping YOY on higher GDP YOY.
Factors like inflation, interest rate, IIP, GDP, politics, investment sentiments are all against the economy, most of them being on the mercy of political will. Many stocks are at historically cheaper valuation. But, one cannot go wrong in consumer stocks. Since 1990 we have crossed three stages. India is at the third stage of savings pattern.  From a high saving rate with low income to high savings rate to higher income to currently (falling) low savings rate to higher income.
