First “Peaceful Investing” workshop was conducted on August 28, 2016 in Mumbai. The workshop aimed at sharing equity investing knowledge with the participants that could help them gain confidence while taking their equity investment decisions.
The workshop focused on highlighting those qualities of companies, which if analysed and identified in potential investment targets, would lead the participants to make their investment decisions with a lot of confidence. Such a confidence would lead the participants to have a lot of emotional stability around their investing decisions and they would be able to hold on to these stocks through the up turns as well as downturns of the markets.
The workshop aimed to point out characteristics of such companies, which once analysed and invested in, would make an investor happy when their share price goes up (as the investor is becoming wealthy) and makes the investor even happier when their share price goes down (as the investor would buy more of them). At the end of the day, then investor would be "Peaceful" with his/her investments.
The workshop witnessed healthy participation by candidates, who asked a lot of queries to resolve their doubts.
These queries touched upon a lot of common doubts that almost all the investors face while making their investment decisions like:
- When should we buy a stock and what price we should pay for it?
- What should be the position sizing guidelines for any stock?
- If I follow any particular approach and stick to it, then I would lose out multibagger stocks, which do not fit in these criteria. Then what should be the approach of investors?
- What should we do when we feel that a company is making a lot of cash but is not distributing it to shareholders nor is deploying in to any new capex?
- How should we identify a management on which we may have total trust that he/she will take care of minority shareholders?
- How should we decide whether a company has a competitive advantage, any brand equity etc?
We were fortunate that quite a few fulltime investors, seasoned investors were part of the participants in the workshop, who shared their investing journey with rest of us. It was a very insightful experience to listen to experience of such learned speakers:
A lot of participants shared their feedback about the workshop and their learnings from it. Below are the feedback of some of the participants:
