A few months ago, several retail investors had entered panic mode as the markets were correcting very sharply. I remember how certain people further fuelled the panic by making comments of absolute doom. Now once again markets have bounced back up since then, and we have people making comments of absolute bliss. At that time I suggested people not to sell in a panic and study the fundamentals of the companies they had invested in.
Now I am telling people to not simply be carried away by hype and not to invest blindly. Irrespective of where the market is, our job as an investor is to study the fundamentals of the business we are investing into. We can’t really predict where the market is going to be.

If you remember the Sensex was 100 on 1st April 1979. Today we are around 17,000 on 29th April 2008. Not too bad, is it? Imagine what all happened over this time. We had scams, economic problems, the License Raj and all sorts of challenges, still things are really that bad now, are they?
No wonder fools like me who continue thinking for the long term and believing in the
