Let's say you bought a stock at Rs. 100. And the current price is Rs. 500. And the current dividend yield is 2.5%. That means you get a dividend of Rs. 12.50. Since you paid only Rs. 100 for the stock, your dividend yield is effectively 12.50%. If you had instead taken a FD for Rs. 100 at 10% interest, then you would get an interest of Rs. 10.

So here your effective dividend yield is more than a FD's interest.

I am bullish on banks and analysts more so on private sector banks.
I hold SBI which I bought in 1998.Today the dividend yield is more than the fixed deposits. At the same time had I bought HDFC bank in 1998 the story would have been better. A titbit. AFAIR SBI has paid uninterrupted dividend for some 110 years which would be a record of sorts.
Other than SBI I own Oriental Bank(bought 2006) and ICICI bought in 2010 and 2011.
A caveat: What happens in the future is anybody's guess. Personally I am waiting for some reaction before I buy. Maybe due elections or the tendency of the market to go down after the month of May (it has happened more often than not).Upto you
Regards
you have made the mistake often others make.rcom you must have bought above 700 and now it is 113 and still u r holding.You should know when to cut off your losses in this if you want to make real good money.Had you sold it off when it was coming down a certain level and invested it in some other stocks you would have more than made up for the losses .Inspite of our markets nearing all time highs we see no participation from our public because they have burned their fingers badly during earlier run ups and are very skeptic now.People regard stock markets as some kind of casino where money can be made easily without any home work or knowledge,the truth is far from that.Also younger people who have time on their side should invest in markets with a long term view.In india not even one percent of our population is invested in the markets,so the potential is huge out there but it will take some time for this change.One example of our peoples mind set here,we will put any amount in any bank as fixed deposit and earn a measly 8 % annum interest,but we wont buy a single share of that bank where you have put that money in,and had you done that you would have earned thrice the return you are getting now at any point of time in the past.that perception has to change for all of us because considering the rate of inflation our fds are not going to make us richer.One of our favourites gold has also come down sharply and real estate rates are astronomical to give further returns in that ratio in the future,Stocks are still cheap only thing you need is to know where to invest and have tons of patience.happy investing to all

Thanks a lot for explaining something as simple as this. just goes to show my lack of experience and knowledge in this field.

I was about to start investing in Tax saving mutual funds starting this month but was thinking about the sensex being at all time highs and after today's tanking I've grown a bit more apprehensive of investing now. What would you guys say?

Note: I'm returning to equity after a gap of 2 years. I was FDing and paying off loans meanwhile.

Tax saving mutual funds are locked in for 3 years, so you have to take a long term view of the market, and not day to day movements. Risk is inherent in equity investment. Anyways, if you are investing monthly/sip, the investments will average out, and if your fund manager puts a decent performance then it might be OK considering the Tax saved.

I am looking forward to invest a major chunk in steel stocks over the next year.The big question is Tata Steel vs SAIL.

Tata Steel is famously the lowest cost producer of steel in the world.But it will ultimately have to take a loss of about 7 billion on its 12 billion corus buy.

SAIL has 15000 crores of cash but is less efficient and is a PSU .

Can anyone point me to a solid fundamental analysis of the companies at current share prices?

I am a long term investor,buy and forget and book profits when valuations get too high.

I would advise you to defer your investment decisions until the 2014 elections and then take a call .The markets are going through the worst phase in their entire span and it will not turn in a jiffy.Any good news is neglected and the retail participation is low to a level which is not justifiable in a growing country like ours.

All the above companies are good investments for relatively long term (3 years+) investors.
Have you studied the bearings companies? Skf,nrb,timken and the likes?

Why? Markets at lower level could present good buying opportunities.

Markets defies all logic and reasoning,If you are active in the markets you must have noticed the lack of depth in it.Stocks have been battered beyond reason but still buyers are scarce to find.There may be one or two in a thousand stocks which are moving up,but to make money in that is like looking for the pin in a haystack.Something is wrong somewhere in our economy which frankly i cant specify,but being in markets for quite a long time i can vouch for one thing,this is not the best time to enter the markets .

Hi.
On a Zee tv program( 10/6/2013) I heard mr.Tambe advising a viewer not to buy SAIL. At the same time he recommended Tata steel.
I bought TS on 26th Feb 2013 at rs 353 plus expenses. Sensex at that time 19202.Today the sensex closed at 18827 and TS at 266, a new 52 week low.Has underperformed.I have been thinking of adding but maybe will wait for it to stabilize.

This is the time to wait and watch. The only sector which seems attractive to me in the current market is Capital Goods, where the sentiment is very negative. Good companies like BHEL and Engineers India are selling at P/E of around 7. I am a long term investor.

Hi
In the best of times you have companies making new lows and in the worst of times you have companies making new highs. So it is what you pick. When watching a channel you think of umpteen scrips but the scrip that you buy or sell is what matters. It is sentiment which is equally important when you consider logic and reasoning.

Hi
On 12/6/2013 I bought BHEL.I too find it good.On 29th May I added L&T.Can you imagine India without them? Or for that matter of fact ITC,M&M,TCS etc.
Regards
PS: Incidentally the advance tax figures which have been flashing today are quite good.
