The workshop would cover detailed elaboration of our fundamental stocks analysis approach: “Peaceful Investing”, using live examples of companies to illustrate different investing concepts and parameters. The day would have detailed discussions on all the aspects of a stock investor’s journey like:
- How to shortlist stocks for analysis out of more than 5,000 listed stocks
- How to conduct detailed analysis of stocks across key parameters like financial, business, valuation and management assessment to find fundamentally sound stocks
- How to read key financial statements like profit & loss statement, balance sheet, cash flow statements and notes in the annual report
- Once a fundamentally strong stock is found, then how to decide what is an appropriate price to pay for it
- Once an investor has bought a stock in her portfolio, then what steps to follow and which resources to use to properly monitor the stock to avoid negative surprises
- How many stocks to own in the portfolio and how much money to allocate to a stock in the portfolio
- How to decide about taking a sell decision about a stock
The workshop would cover a detailed analysis of various sources of information available to investors like annual reports, quarterly results, credit rating reports, online financial resources like Screener.
Our stock analysis & selection approach has evolved over our stocks investing journey of more than 10 years while we had a full-time job at hand. We have faced all the major challenges being faced by retail/part-time investors. Therefore, “Peaceful Investing” approach focuses on addressing those hurdles acknowledging the primary challenge being scarcity of the time available with the investors.
“Peaceful Investing” workshop would make investors confident about stock decisions to ensure that our faith would not shake with day to day market price fluctuations and we would be able to reap true benefits of stock markets to fulfill our dream of financial independence.
The workshop would help an investor learn in-depth analysis of stocks that would help her make her own opinion about the strengths & weaknesses of any stock. The participants would be able to use the stock analysis with their preferred stock selection approach like value investing or growth investing.
The workshop would cover basics of investing and simultaneously focus on key concepts needed for stock analysis both for a beginner and seasoned stock investor. We believe that a person does not need to have an educational background in finance to be a good stock investor and the workshop has been designed keeping this in mind.
