Recently I had been extremely busy along with Aniket Waghmare and his team as we were testing unique models where we use options as a strategy as a hedge to minimize risks while investing. That has not allowed me to post here often as well as reply to comments- my sincere apologies for that. I’m sure you will understand.
I don’t think we could have had a better opportunity to actually test out what all we have discovered. All the things happening around in the world make sure that the environment is as dynamic and unpredictable as possible to test out our knowledge in the practical world.
A few of you might have already experienced returns in the range of 100% based on some of these ideas. Of course this is based on allotting a small part of your capital (say 10-15%) while leaving the remaining for the long term.
Several times I like using a small part of my profits from long term investing for experimenting with various interesting methods and techniques of business and finance. To be honest not all are successful – but that is something I know even before I put in some money. However if things do work out, the returns are extremely high and exponential. If they don’t work out – it just means we had fun and learnt what not to do and should try more things. Fear of failure should never stop us from doing things we want to do – provided we have made sure we are not risking too much. Risking too much can lead to a situation like Lehman Brothers or Bear Stearns or the several other Investment firms in America and the West. Always make sure that you risk a very small part and never put your family and loved ones in trouble. They suffer much more when they see you in trouble.
No matter how large you are, I feel new areas should always be explored. That is how there is growth in business and investing. Without growth things aren’t fun and exciting. I know of people who have invested around one crore and within around eighteen months made that into over 200 crores. (DSN was a company which started in November, 2006 by Gaurang Shah with around one crore. Today in less than two years they are worth over 200 crores. They are in the space of outdoor digital advertising.)
As they say impossible is nothing and we need to keep our dreams alive. Today with the fall of some of the biggest names in the world of finance and business in America, many Indians might be feeling a bit worried and hesitant. My message to all of you is that this is not our time to worry and panic – but our time to rise and shine. In fact I feel we have been given one of the best opportunities in history to grow and show the world what we are capable of. What our country needs is growth – and we are all responsible to make it happen.
We need to seize this opportunity and show the world what we are capable of. In the short term, we might feel the ripples of what has happened in the West. But instead of cribbing ad getting worried, we need to think about how we can benefit and how we can learn from the mistakes of these Western institutions. China is going to be in trouble as they have large amounts of exports – we fortunately don’t and we are a domestic growth story.
The fall of one empire means it is time for a new empire to rise. When the sun sets in one part of the world – it means that it is rising in another part. This is a new dawn, and even though we might have darkness for some time, soon after the sun is going to rise.
Let us not worry and let us make the most of now.
