In this video, we have with us Mr. Vivek Bajaj, co-founder, StockEdge, Elearnmarkets, in a conversation with Mr. Pankaj Singhal, who will be discussing the basics and the power of common sense investing and trading in the stock market. First, Mr. Pankaj Singhal will talk about the foundational events which took place in his life and his career, which led him to become a trader and then an investor on a full-time basis.
Mr. Singhal will then discuss the reasons behind why he chose to go ahead with full-time investing in the stock market and how he practices it after leaving his job. Next, he will give us a good approach towards investing or trading on a part-time basis, with the help of the right kind of knowledge and common sense. He will discuss how we can find some great sectors in our own environment through which we can easily invest in the share market.
With some practical examples, Mr. Bajaj and Mr. Pankaj Singhal will discuss how we can pick up elements from our own environment to choose the investing avenues we are comfortable with and how retail investors can avoid the traps that the companies’ problems can create. Mr. Singhal, with these examples, will lay down a simple process through which we can identify the right companies to invest in by doing efficient, but not cumbersome, research.
At the end, we will discuss the number of stocks one can comfortably track and invest in for their portfolio if we decide to trade and invest in them actively. We will also discuss some drawbacks of investing in mutual funds and the importance of our own research while building our portfolio. Mr. Pankaj Singhal will pick up a case study to show how the basics of common-sense investing in the share market worked for him. He will do so with the FMCG sector, considering food to be a basic, common-sensical approach to picking up the most basic elements for our stock market investment.
