“Investing is simple, but not easy.”
– Warren Buffett
Nivesh Niti (Nivesh Niti – Android Apps on Google Play ) is an attempt to impart the right investor mindset.
Most of the financial content on the internet is designed for short-term traders which gives the idea that it is very easy to make money in short term whereas the opposite is true.
It is difficult to predict any stock performance in short term and at the same time it is pretty easy say with greater chances of being right about the long term prospects of a company given that the company is doing something you understand and they have a earning model that you understand.
It is more likely for a company who is doing good for last 10 years to perform well in 11th as well as subsequent years and is actually relatively easy than predicting what it is going to do in next few days.
This process is an inherent part of what is famously known as “Value Investing” pioneered by Benjamin Graham and then by his disciple Warren Buffett.
Value investing is all about Paying the Right price for the company.
Core idea of Value Investing is trying to BUY something only at SALE (50% or more Discount)
Just like in SALE of any kind you need to know the MRP (Maximum Retail Price) to know it’s on how much Discount.
In Nivesh Niti every stock is assigned a value that reflect what should be its MRP (known as Optimum Price) by quantifying various aspects that matters as per Value Investing Principles.
For easier reference they are assigned with the Star Rating which is just an indication of their current level of Discount from Optimum Price.
So, the Current Price of a stock at any day place them to have one of the following levels of Discount from Optimum Price.
Level of Discount Stars
50% or More 5
40% to 50% 4.5
30% to 40% 4
20% to 30% 3.5
10% to 20% 2.5
0% to 10% 2
Current Price >= Optimum Price (NOT at SALE) i.e. 1 Star
Like in any SALE our aim is to get Maximum Value for our Paid Price.
“Price is what you pay for something, but value is what you get.”
OUR AIM IS :
“To Buy Great Businesses at Maximum Discount.”
A value of above Optimum Price just means that it’s NOT yet at SALE so just stay away from it till it’s on SALE (if ever).
That’s the only thing to focus and all the other things will automatically fall into place.
