Dear Niveshaks, 

With this issue of Niveshak, we bid farewell to an eventful year of 2013. The year is marked with the historic debut run of the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi assembly elections and the beginning of a new wave in the Indian politics.

AAP has won 28 out of 70 seats and emerged as the second largest party after BJP with the ruling Congress ending up in a humiliating defeat. The main reason behind this is sight­ed as the growing distrust on Congress among the people of the country in the wake of numerous scams and growing food prices. The assembly elections which were seen as semi-finals before the upcoming 2014 general elections has shown the signs of uprising Modi-wave in the country with the BJP emerging victorious in almost all the states in which the elections were held. Now, the AAP is all set to establish a new government in Delhi with outside support from Congress. The main agenda of the party will be to first prove their majority on the floor and then to pass the Jan Lokpal bill as early as possible. The year has also seen an uproar in the benchmark stock indices of Sensex and Nifty after they scaled new heights despite slowing economic growth and high inflation, in hopes of wider reforms af­ter the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. The strong show by the BJP in assembly elections contributed to boost investor sentiments and stock indices breaking their previous all-time highs. The Federal Reserve’s announcement of a $10 billion stimulus cut, finally after a long wait, has also helped the markets stabilize. After fluctuating in a tight range for a major part of the year, the Sensex recorded a new intra-day high of 21,483.74 on December 9. The index has risen by 8.5% in 2013 from 2012 as compared to 26% in 2012.
The article of the month, ‘Telecom Vendor Market undergoing a paradigm shift’ gives a note on the changing telecom landscape and its possible ramifications for the cost-sensitive market like India. Our cover story ‘Outlook 2014’ brings forward a detailed analysis of the prevailing global and domestic economic factors, their impact on various sectors and give their standpoint for the year 2014. Our next presentation, ‘Japanese Economy – How it feels to sit on a Time Bomb’ tells us how the ‘Abenomics’ has affected Japan’s economy and what they must do to come out of a likely abyss. The article on “Facebook IPO” from FinPact critically analyzes what went wrong with the biggest ever IPO. FinSight article “Mc Aloo Pvt Ltd” relates the strategies adopted by a hypothetical Pani Puri Vendor to that of the banks. The Government Securities (in short G-secs) are considered to be of low-risk since they are backed by the taxing power of the government and are issued by it or its agencies. The classroom section of this issue takes you through how government uses these instruments to raise money and where to obtain them.
To end this brief note, it’s important that we thank you, our readers, for your con­stant support and appreciation. It is your endless encouragement and enthusiasm that keeps us going. Kindly keep pouring in your suggestions and feedback to and as always,
