Dear Niveshaks,

The month of February has generated lots of news in the financial world. The BSE Index Sensex remained below 25,000 mark for the whole month and we also saw big fall on some days mainly due to global cues.

The month started with the good news regarding rise in Manufacturing PMI for January which was noted as 51.1 compared to 49.1 for December. Also we saw IT behemoth Infosys announcing that it will build world’s tallest tower clock tower. The decision regarding net neutrality by TRAI clarified the confusion where TRAI did not allow for differential pricing. Also the announcements by Apple that it will set up tech centre in India added gold to the India’s IT glory.

The month ended with the three most important financial events of the year. Railway budget sought to explore innovative sources of financing, Economic Survey focussed more on the external factors and it forecasted unusually large range of 7 – 7.75% of GDP growth rate for FY17 and the Union Budget also stressed on the turmoil in the external sectors and renewed focus on rural sector.

On magazine front, our cover story is about how Alphabet got its valuation and how start-ups are getting so high valuations in spite of running in losses. The Article of Month describes about the shoddy practices that a Pharma company followed and earned millions. The story shows how a company which is highly valued would be following a shady business model. FinGyaan section of the magazine talks about the boundless opportunities that India possess and shows that much can be done. For Fin-Rewind section we have chosen a topic which explains how OPEC created a financial funding option and what impact it has on the world’s economy. FinSight explains about the behavioural aspects of finance and focuses on how human behaviour affect the financial decision. The Classroom section explains about LIBOR and what is the method of arriving at LIBOR and
some other aspects.

This time we bring you interview from Vivek Agarwal, MD of MTECH INFORMATIC LTD. He talks about Indian IT hardware industry, HR policies, the impact of Land Bill and the measures that should be taken for successful implementation of Start-up India.

To end this brief note, it’s important that we thank you, our readers, for your constant support and appreciation. Please continue to motivate us so that we can come out with more insightful reads in the issues to come. Keep it pouring in.

Thank you. Stay invested!
