Blogs & websites :
1. Rohit Chauhan’s blog( blog.rcfunds.com)
What I really like about this blog is its originality and the logic in the ideas it tries to convey, material is very engaging and forces you to think. Posts are tagged into variety of categories and it’s a treasure for anyone who’s seriously wanting to learn.
Must Read: Rohit used to share his investing template, you can still check if it’s there on the blog it’s the best thing you can lay your hands on. It just shows how hard a person is willing to work to generate market beating returns, there is no complex financial modelling here, it’s simple enough for anybody to understand and follow.
2. Prof. Sanjay Bakshi ( fundooprofessor.wordpress.com )
If you don’t already know, he is the father of value investing in India, inspired by Warren buffet and Charlie Munger, some of his lectures which he graciously shares through his blog are for a lack of a better word mind-blowing.
Must Read: Relaxo lecture series is the most profound material I have read on investing yet. It should form as compulsory reading material at every Post graduate course in management.
3. Ayush Mittal & Family ( www.dalal-street.in & www.screener.in )
Screener.in is probably the most useful tool for any investor focused on Indian markets, I can’t even imagine the kind of effort which has gone into creating something like that. Yes and it’s available for free ( well at least for now 😉 )
Dalal-street.in is my go to destination when I am looking for new ideas. These guys have a great knack for identifying beautifully simple businesses which have indeed proven to be very successful.
Must Read: There is a small tab called “talks” on screener.in, it’s a hidden gem, they compile articles and interesting posts from around the web.
4. Safal Niveshak ( www.safalniveshak.com )
Having personally attended his investing workshop, I have greatly benefited from Vishal’s ideas and his investment process.
It is a treasure trove of information and insights into the world of Warren Buffet and many other value investors. What really appeals to me is that it can be followed and understood by everybody.
Must Read: There are interviews which he has conducted of many brilliant investors out there. It will require some patience in finding them, however one should read all of them, in addition to that you can subscribe to the value investing course, it is money well spent.
5. Basant Maheshwari ( www.theequitydesk.com )
Although I don’t subscribe to his paid service yet, the website is by itself a brilliant learning experience, it has one of the largest and the most communicative forum, lots of new ideas to pick up.
Must Read: Basant Maheshwari has written a book called “The Thoughtful Investor” , it’s a good read.
6. Base hit investing ( www.basehitinvesting.com )
Although this blog doesn’t discuss stocks of the Indian markets, it has one of the most insightful material on investing.
Must read : Read the articles tagged “Investment process “.
What I really like about all of them is that they don’t advocate short cuts, they have been in this business long enough to understand that it requires just as much effort, patience and perseverance as any other line of work.
Every time I read through these blogs I come out wiser and inch towards being a better investor.
