We are truly honoured to have such faith from investors and it gave us immense pleasure to know that the participants found the workshop valuable and added to their stock analysis skills.

The workshop focussed on concepts of stock investing including different aspect of analysis like financial analysis, business & industry analysis, valuation analysis and management analysis along with price to pay for any stock. The workshop also focused on different data sources available to the retail investors for doing stock analysis and an in-depth understanding using Screener, which is one of the best data source available for Indian stocks

The workshop included a dedicated session on answering different queries faced by the participants while doing investments and stock analysis.

In addition, a few of the participants who had been active in the markets since long, shared their investing experiences with all the audience. It helped everyone to learn from the experience of seasoned investors especially the members who are just starting out in the field of investments.

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

Hi Dr Malik, 

Who does not want to multiply his growth? I want it, and saw the path. Now I have to walk down the path under the guidance of legendary Dr Malik.

Attending the seminar of Dr Malik has been my life’s best decision. The experience has been phenomenal and an eye opener, I have always admired value investing as I have read a lot of great investors like Warren Buffet, Peter Lynch, and Benjamin Graham etc. But to meet and learn from our very own Dr Malik has been very educative and enriching experience.

I would thank Dr Malik for the confidence he instilled in me through his teachings, I can now understand the stocks in a much better manner. As Dr Malik says, business is all about “People”, I can understand the importance of such statement as it’s the most important factor which can make or break your investments.

I would like to thank Dr Malik for giving me valuable inputs about investments even after the session. The breakfast with you at the Hotel gave me glimpse of you as a person which has been very inspiring. It was enlightening to know how much you value relationships especially with your dear ones. The amount of gratitude you have in life for everything is remarkable.

The session was very educative and I was delighted to observe the admiration of people for you. You have truly turned around financial life of many many small investors, for them you are no less than god.

The ride to airport with you another enjoyable experience as it enlightened me with your humbleness and your professionalism. I salute you for your dedication to your work and applaud you for ethics and straight forwardness. Looking forward to attend more of your seminars, no matter in which city they would be. Thank you,

Dear Dr. Vijay,

First of all thank you very much for accepting our request and conducting a workshop in Kolkata. It was indeed a very enriching experience and far better than expectations. Very well planned, optimum use of time, delivery of presentation, content, flow – all were perfect!. Couldn’t take my attention away even for a moment. It has added a lot of valuable perspectives to me as an investor.  It has enhanced my opinion of you as an investor and as a person. Look forward to staying connected and continuous learning. Thank You ! Regards,

It was a great methodical and structural way of learning. Workshop truly stood on its promise of leading to ‘Peaceful Investing’. Subjects were aptly covered with well distributed time during the day. I also liked your focused approach on process more than any precise company related answers.

Also best part was making people to learn how to think and get the answers for their questions so that they can adapt the technique for any analysis on their own. Thanks and Regards,

Hi Dr,

Paying for your workshop probably was the greatest investment of my life. Your workshop changed my perspective towards investing. I don’t know whether I will be able to learn or adapt 100% what you have told. But I will give an honest attempt to it.

Please do come up with refresher or advanced level workshop in future as requested by participants yesterday. Just by being in that environment for a day makes a man much wiser. Regards,

Dear Sir, 

It was a pleasure meeting you and getting the opportunity to hear you at the workshop. Overall I enjoyed the session.

The delivery of content was fantastic – precise, structured, lucid and covering what needed to be covered, and only as much. The way each session was summed up at the end of the session and the way the day was summed up at the end of the day was very helpful and I truly appreciate that.

I also got inspired from your humility, energy and straightforwardness, especially the honest responses to the queries.

Last but not the least and as I mentioned it to you yesterday, “if someone is planning to start Value Investing, your workshop is the apt first such investment” 🙂

Dear Sir,

You are a wonderful and humble person and I have been lucky and privileged to meet you and learn from you. Sir, stock analysis is my Passion and I intend to do it fulltime, in spite of me doing a job currently. Thank You

Hello Dr. Malik, 

It was a pleasure meeting you in person and attending your workshop in Kolkata.

I was greatly impressed with your clarity of thought and sharp focus on your area of expertise. But most of all I was touched with your humility and the fact that you generously share your learning and wisdom with all.

Dear Sir,

 A great learning experience, much needed for me. Thank you for your presence, looking forward for much more insight from you in future.

“Peaceful Investing” approach is the result of my experience of more than a decade in stock markets. I believe that the biggest challenge faced by investors is “scarcity of time” for stock analysis and “Peaceful Investing” keeps it in mind.

This approach aims to find such stocks, where once an investor has put in her money, then she may sleep peacefully. If later on, the stock prices increase, then the investor is happy as she is now wealthier. On the contrary, if the stock prices decline, even then the investor is happy as she can now buy more quantity of the selected fundamentally good stocks.
