Dear Niveshaks,

This month, we want to start with a thank you to all our magazine readers and content contributors for your relentless support and encouragement. The quality and number of articles we have been receiving is steadily growing and it has become a painstakingly difficult task for us to select the best of those articles. Indeed we are also happy to know that a lot of companies and their employees also follow our magazine.

The last month had been quite an eventful one for the Indian stock markets, it has seen its all-time high and the momentum still continues as I write this editorial. It’s a pleasing sight for the traders and short term investors to see the prices of a vast majority of stocks rise to such heights. It goes without saying, a low tides follows the high, Investors have to be cautious and doubly careful in case they are planning to take any fresh long positions in the current market scenario. The rise was mainly driven by the strong earnings reports from major banks like ICICI, Yes Bank, Indian Bank and the likes. Policy measures also fueled the euphoria in markets. We also witnessed merger talks of two large e-commerce players in the country – Flipkart and Snapdeal, this merger could be a turning point in the e-commerce battlefield pitting Flipkart against the Global player Amazon, as stronger competitor than before.

We have the French elections due on 7th May, has been covered in the Article of the Month. The battle is between two major contenders, Le Pen – A Protectionist leader of France’s far right political wing and Emmanuel Marcon – A former Investment banker, leading ‘En Marche!’ It will be interesting to see, if people of France will surprise the world just like people from USA did or will they choose the more liberal and well supported Investment Banker.

In this version we also publish RERA: The Real Estate Sector Finally gets a Watchdog, which touches upon the salient features of the act along with discussing what changes we can expect in the real estate sector due to this landmark act, which has been long overdue. In the FinFame you are about read about the most Successful Value Investor in the last century – Warren Buffet. His life, his principles, his investing style continue to inspire anyone who wishes to venture into the stock markets. In the Classroom, we make an attempt to explain the Modern Portfolio theory for those who are not aware of it, and to those who are already aware of it, it would be a revision.

We hope you enjoy reading our magazine and give us your valuable feedback on what you expect to read in the upcoming volumes.

Stay Invested!
