  1. Hi Valuepick,

    For the benefit of all your readers......could you please post an article about how to value and company correctly ?

  2. Vikas , Even if your idea is good ,I am sorry to say that since it is a very vast subject and need a look from various angles ,nowadays I am not in a position to spend sufficient time to do it .Hope it in a later stage when time permits.

  3. No probl buddy......Please take your own time.


    ARMAN FINANCIAL bse code 531179 seems better choice than Capital Trust.Atleast Arman Financial they have never gone into loss since past many years.I feel recent foray into MFI will bring the company into greater dimension and forthcomming higher NP, thereby, entering into different league like SE Investment.One can steal the opportunity at lower prices and have patience.Management is good and proven.It will go miles after miles.

  5. KOPRAN bse code 524280@42/= is a great turnaround story of 2010.Exactly the same happend with LUPIN when it was quoting at 62/= way back in 2002 and looking at the low price I bought the stock in huge quantity.Lupin is now trades at 1900+ ex 1:1 bonus.I feel same thing is happening here with KOPRAN and looks super multibagger from hereon.In fact,it is another LUPIN in making.Good opportunity to grab such stocks and held on for super duper profits.Cheers.

  6. Hi Valuepick,

    What's your current view on picking this stock at CMP which is much lower at Rs 90 after the rights date.
