A lot of participants shared their feedback about the workshop and their learnings from it. Below are the feedbacks of some of the participants:


Dear Vijay Sir, The workshop in Pune, is an eye-opener for me. Your method of peaceful investing is great, I know the importance of business analysis, and all your five pillars first time, if we follow it, it will definitely yields great returns, people in value investing always says, MOAT and all those concepts, but you teach how to find the MOAT, it’s great. You have complete rational and practical approach towards peaceful investing. The way you conduct workshop is great, your energy, enthusiasm is awesome, you teach not the sake of teaching, you teach to understand the concept thoroughly, last but not least,, if anybody want to be a value investor, must invest in your workshop first then in stocks. Thanks & Regards

Dear Dr., The program was very good. Your sincerity was the highlight; especially because our industry is not known for this quality. I appreciated your forthright dismissal of PEG ratio, P/BV and the MOSL wealth creation study.  All of these rejections were spot on. I could not agree with your views on position sizing.
You cannot improve this program in my humble opinion. It is already five star. You should have another full day program devoted to next level topics. Regards

I hope you find it useful.

Hi, My feedback:
It was a great learning experience for a person like me with no finance/commerce background. Since there are many financial ratios referred in fundamental analysis, which one to choose while screening a right opportunity was always a challenge. This workshop has definitely helped me reducing that noise by way of a step by step approach towards identifying potential investment candidate.  Especially the steps mentioned to identify a good management was very helpful since it’s a challenge for a retail investor who has near no access to management of the company.
And once again thank you very much for making the world of "Fundamental Analysis" interesting for non-finance professional like me. Warm Regards,

Hello Dr. Vijay Malik Sir,
I am Somasundara Rao Matu, who attended peaceful investing workshop in 12th Feb 2017 In Pune. Though I am crawling kid in terms of investing, I was very much impressed by your methodology that you have developed over the time which gives a logical direction in picking right stock and right time of investing. It definitely inculcated investing skills in stocks that I was lacking of earlier.

Dr. Vijay, It was a great experience to attend the workshop and I would definitely recommend others. Your rigorous approach to analyzing stocks along with your insights into various aspects of fundamental analysis should be very much helpful. Thanks,
