  1. Hi Aayush, It`s really a nice collection and the blogs you have mentioned are really superb.


    1. Yeah, need to update the same. Was created quickly at the time of site creation.

      Do share names of some of your favorite books which you would recommend for reading.

  2. I would recommend these books…

    -Super Stocks by Ken Fisher. The book is a classic written around 1984. His ideas are still fresh and relevant like Ben Graham. In fact after reading this book I realized it is 2 in one book…on on long term value investment and second on attributes of great business. So this is an investment and business book combined. Ken asks us to look for super companies that have temporarily faltered due to some issues (glitch he calls them) and then buy when fundamentals indicate serious cheapness..for super size profits (for him 5 to 10 times in 3 to 5 years qualifies as super profit). This is a realm of super investors You remember guys like Warren Buffet, RJ, Shelby Davis when reading this book. Highly recommended if you are very long term value investor.

    – Margin of Safety by Seth Klarman. Another classic on value investing. I have eBook with me.

    -Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahelman. Perhaps best book on behavioral aspects. Instant classic.

    – Expectation Investing by Rappaport and Mauboussin. They flip DCF to find what market expectation the current market price implies and ask us to check if that judgement is still justified. I am still reading it so cannot make definitive comment. But would like to get your opinion on this method of stock analysis if you happen to read it.

    1. Thanks for sharing your recommendations. Nice choices.

      I have yet to read the above. Will share views when done.

  3. Can we not download those books? I need “Beating the Street” and “One Up on Wall Street” ebooks.

  10. Hi Frnds
    i have an query regarding eps growth rate.
    How can we calculate eps growth rate of last 10 year,if its stock split in between these 10 years, i mean as stock split (Liquid) its eps goes shrink, so this shrink spurts eps growth??? pls suggest how can we calculate it.
