The Introductory Post..

A big hello to all. And welcome to my blog.

A bit about me
I am a consulting equity analyst based in Pune, Maharashtra. Investing is my passion and investing in equity is what excites me most. I have built my core competency around investing in Indian listed companies, specifically mid-caps and small-caps, using fundamental analysis and value investing principles. I also dabble in special situation cases every now and then.
By nature, I am quite conservative and risk-averse, and it spills over in my approach towards investing too. I am an avid reader and i read books based on value investing, behavioural finance and psychology.
As a hobby, I teach in the capacity of a visiting faculty in 3 business schools based in Pune, where i take up specialisation subjects like Security Analysis, Portfolio Management, Derivatives and Financial Markets. Please click here for my Linkedin Profile.

This blog is a place where I will discuss my thoughts on investing in general, specific investment opportunities and investment psychology. I believe that investing is a profession where learning never stops. I would like to discuss my thoughts and ideas with readers and learn more and more. 
This is not at all meant to be any kind of business venture.

The standard disclaimer
Everything that I publish on this blog are my personal thoughts and opinions. They are in no way a representation of opinions of any of the organisations I work with. Most importantly, this is a place for discussions only. None of what I publish should ever be construed as an investment recommendation (or otherwise). Also, I will not disclose buying/selling details of any particular stock. Being a professional analyst, i believe it would be unethical and unfair to do so. 

Cheers and happy investing!!!
