The Perma-Bear Monologues

June 24, 2008

1) It is very very difficult to make money in the stock market. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it more often.

2)Markets are not unidirectional. What goes up, can and will come down.

3)There is a thing called "cost inflation index". Google it. You will see how much minimum your investment has to make to stay even.

4)There are such beings called multi year bear markets. The rumors about the demise of the bear were grossly exaggerated.

5)There is no India growth story that can be viewed apart from Valuations.

6)In a bull market even crap costs more. So don't buy crap, even if it is called R Power and all your neighbours are buying it.

7)Stop Watching CNBC. Their motto is Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur

8)Stop fancing your intelligence. Humility would do you a great world of good. Starting with the assumption that you know absolutely nothing would help in the longer run.

9)In the longer run we are all dead.
