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 I Have Learnt So Far From The Stock Market

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. Our savings rate has falle…

Three Wheelers VS Four Wheelers (Small commercial and passenger Vehicles)

3W’s 4W’s Price 1.25 lacs – 1.50 lacs 2 lacs – 4 lacs Average 35 Km/Lit 28-20 Km/Lit Cost 20 Ps/Km 2 Rs/Km
Three Wheelers way ahead:
·3W’s have a much better access than 4W’s in India. The roads in the small towns, small cities, rural and semi rural areas very narrow but the 3W’s can roam easily without any problems.


·Three Wheelers are even better for their service. Good technology is used in the 3W’s which is so simple that the driver can service it himself. The driver can become a half engineer on the spot thus saving his time and earning some more livelihood. Whereas 4W’s have to be taken to the service centers. The drivers have to pay for their maintenance, fees and also their time. The maintenance cost in 3W’s is negligible compared to the maintenance of a 4W. Hence more losses are incurred with 4W’s.


·The Re-sale value of the 3W’s is considerably better than the 4W’s.
