Hi Dr Vijay Malik,

Thanks for conducting such wonderful workshop in Hyderabad. Your commitment and energy levels are high from start to end despite lot of questions during the session. Your focus on agenda is simply superb. Your memory to remember sales figures after 4 hours of closing the sheet and your fast calculations are awesome.

As per your advised readings, I have went through Peaceful Investing E-Book, Company analyses Vol 1 and Vol 2,  annual reports, credit rating reports of two different companies before coming to workshop. This preparation helped me a lot in understanding each and every part of agenda staring from buy, monitor and sell decisions though I am not from finance back ground. 

Last but not least, you patient levels are highly appreciable while answering questions. I will recommend this workshop to every body who want to have financial independence with peaceful investing. Peaceful investing in an approach towards long term investing for high returns with low/less risk during market ups or downs without disturbing your peace or sleep.

Hello Dr. Vijay Malik,

Thanks for your session on last Sunday! It was very useful and I thought you've provided a great framework to perform structured analysis on stocks. 

This session has answered many questions I had in my mind before. Before I read your books, I was confused as to which aspects of the company I need to analyse and which companies I need to start looking at. Your book and also the session solved this puzzle for me and I started analyzing companies based on my learning from this class.

Hello Dr Vijay,

The workshop experience was great. I can say that it was one of the best sessions I have ever attended. I like the way you explain the analysis of the financial statements.

I've started working on identifying good stocks thought, it might take some time for me to get used to it. Once again, thank you very much for sharing your knowledge!

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Dr. Vijay,

Hope you are doing well.

I really enjoyed your session on "Peaceful Investing".I have been following your blog since last year and the first half of your session helped fill in certain knowledge gaps regarding the analysis of financial statements. I really appreciate the time and effort you took in answering all the queries of the participants.

Hi Dr ji,

I found it interesting to find you, a medical person, so methodical & scrupulous in accounting. 

Overall I got to learn some fundamental principles of accounting, reading BS, PL account. Now I am confident of reading annual reports which I used to shun away as I am from science background.

Dr Rama Krishna

Dear Dr Vijay Malik,

I learned quite a few useful points from your workshop. More particularly, the detailed analysis and implications of operating cash flows. I have started looking at stocks from that perspective. Thanks for your guidance.
