Be vary about getting caught into a value trap with #HAL #OFS ..... just some points to keep in mind
POSITIVE: HAL market cap is sufficient to get itself included in the MSCI Index. Might happen in May-2023. so the govt has timed this well. Image
NEGATIVE: Domestic institutions like #LIC & #HDFC who bought the stock when it was Rs1000 levels appear to be selling in each rally even while Retail & FIIs appear have to increased their stake. DONT READ much into the FII stake since much of it could be Index Funds, ETFs & HFs Image

The #AdaniGroups Saga- For Naive #Investors. A thread

I, Mr A(#Adani) have 100 chips. By #Law, I cannot own more than 75, so I hav 73 chips. 27 chips r sold in d market. Anther 15 Chips: My uncle buys them by pretending to b normal people. This is illegal, bt who will catch me?
So there are 12 chips left in the market. Out of these, #Funds like #LIC buys 9 chips. 3 chips are now left on the open market.

My #media, #political and PR management and #connections are excellent. There are whispers that I am related to the #king and #Government.
My uncle, disguised as a common man, #buys and #sells chips again, creating an impression of great demand. A plastic chip worth Rs 2 is given for Rs 10.
People compete to buy at Rs 12, 13. Then my uncle increases price and buys chips fr Rs 100 making me one of Investors Fav scrip

२४ जानेवारीला हिंडेनबर्गने #AdaniGroup च्या विरोधात एक रिसर्च रिपोर्ट पब्लिश केला आणि या ग्रुपमधील स्टॉक्सच्या प्राईज धडाधड कोसळल्या. हा रिपोर्ट पब्लिश होऊन आता एक महिना उलटून गेला आहे. या एका महिन्यात घडलेल्या घडामोडींचा थोडक्यात गोषवारा. #Thread #HindenburgReport #म #मराठी
२४ जानेवारीला या अमेरिकन कंपनीने आपला रिसर्च रिपोर्ट पब्लिश करत अदानी ग्रुप दहा वर्षांपासून 'स्टॉक मॅनिप्युलेशन आणि अकाऊंटिंग फ्रॉड' करत असल्याचा दावा केला. #LIC ची #AdaniGroup मध्ये ३०,००० कोटी रुपयांची गुंतवणूक असल्यामुळे तेही यात ओढले गेले. #Thread #HindenburgReport
२६ जानेवारीपर्यंत अदानी ग्रुपमधील कंपन्यांचे शेअर्स मोठ्या प्रमाणात विकले गेले आणि ब्लूमबर्गनुसार त्यांनी १०० बिलियन डॉलरहून अधिक मार्केट व्हॅल्यू गमावली. त्यानंतरदेखील अदानी ग्रुपची संपत्ती घटतच राहिली आणि त्यांचा FPO फक्त १ टक्के सबस्क्राईब झाला. #Thread #HindenburgReport

1 THREAD on LIC and its investments in the Adani Group - why #LIC has been imprudent, reckless and irresponsible in squandering money belonging to its policyholders. Why even now, it may not be too late for it to cut its losses and run from the fire.…
2 LIC has stakes in 5 Adani Group companies of which its earliest substantive acquisition was in Adani Ports in Sept 2000. LIC management has defended itself by saying that the acquisitions in Group cos were made “over a period”. <3 years does not suggest long term!
3 Significantly Adani Port, which has been a major source of revenue, is the only co to have somewhat avoided the free fall in the month after the #Hindenburg revelations. LIC’s stake, thankfully for now, were more in this venture. LIC will do well not to bet on this for long

Months before the @HindenburgRes report. Bhakts mocked telling that #Adani group is one of the most profitable investment for LIC. Look what has happened now 🙏

Minister @KTRBRS have pointed out the same & seriously addressed the threat in January.

Examining the Impact of India's Gigantic Conglomerate.

What is #FPO ?

🔶FPO, "Follow-on Public Offer," is a process in which a company that is already publicly traded issues shares to existing shareholders or new investors.
Why do companies do FPO ?

The reason behind the company's FPO is:

🔶To reduce the debt that already exists in a company.

🔶To raise additional capital for a company.

The eco system & backers of #Hindenburg this time around has bitten too much & are about to die choking on it. #RahulGandhi who is biggest basher of #Adani is in for a big shock. Read this thread carefully as I am presenting facts which is difficult to refute & may help you...2
...The biggest question is why has #Hindenburg left thousands of co's in #US indulging in fraudulent market practices & chosen to attack #Adani in far away India. Certainly it is invited by the anti-India gang which also see the group as close to #Modi. A political nexus...3 obvious.
The idea was also to fund the entire exercise by heavily shorting the market & make a huge killing. If you had noticed the shorting of #Adani stocks began more than a week + before the #HindenburgReport.

3/ Adani's lenders & subsidiaries like #LIC, SBI & Ambuja cement also took a 🔴big hit.

Yet, the group defends that this mischievous report is aimed at hurting Adani Transmission's FPO.

LIC IPO - Long Thread:
This could be the most hated thread of mine, coz who can argue with LIC fan base? But if your money is not going the right way, I’ll raise questions like I always do. With $3BN riding on #LICIPO , this could be the saving bet for many. Or so you hope…🧵
India’s Insurance density (Premiums/population) is very low & you will hear this most from insurers. India at $59 per capita premium appears to be in its "infancy" with huge upside ahead. Even with a base of 1.4 Bn people, this does look attractive for high growth. Right ?
Until you look at the YoY trend below (not found in DRHP, obviously). India has been stuck in this range since 2009. In-fact we have a falling trend with some spurts. This hardly looks like a growth market to me. So what happened here ? We’ll examine this later.

1As the #LICIPO opens today for retail investors here is a short thread of my pieces since 2020 revealing the anatomy of India’s biggest-ever privatisation scandal
2 I start with this piece, written in Feb 2020, after FinMin first announced intent to “sell” LIC. I asked: how can you sell something you do not even own?…
3 In this piece, written in early Feb 2022, I warned about the grave possibility of undervaluing #LIC, India’s Crown Jewel. This was written before the LIC’s DRHP was filed with SEBI…

As the #LIC IPO opens today, a small snippet from its of independent India’s first scams involved LIC, and a large part of the credit of bringing it to light lay with Nehru’s son-in-law.
Feroze Gandhi; whose proposal of marriage Indira Gandhi had accepted as she wrote, ‘on the steps of the (Basilica) of Sacré-Coeur’ at the end of summer while ‘Paris bathed in soft sunshine,’ is said to have had an unpleasant relationship with his father-in-law Jawaharlal Nehru.
The marriage was said to eventually have become an unhappy one. But, like Indira, he too spent time in jail during the freedom struggle; and was a formidable enough parliamentarian, not least when he was embarrassing Nehru’s government.

LIC चा IPO येतोय..हा IPO घ्यावा म्हणून LIC कडून मोठी जाहिरातही केली जाते आहे.

पॉलिसी असणाऱ्यांनी हा IPO घ्यावा यासाठी LIC ने ६० रुपयांचा डिस्काउंट ही जाहीर केलाय..मग -

LIC चा मेगा IPO घ्यावा का ?


इन्शुरन्स चा धंदा मुळात चालतो कसा ह्याचा घेतलेला हा वेध..

#म #मराठीत
इन्शुरन्स चा धंदा मोठा किचकट आहे.

ह्यात पॉलिसी घेणाऱ्याकडून थोडे पैसे (प्रीमियम)घेतले जातात आणि काही अघटीत झाल्यास(पॉलिसीत नोंदल्याप्रमाणे उदा. अपघात ,मृत्यू ,आजारपण इ इ)पॉलिसी असणाऱ्याला भरलेल्या प्रीमियमच्या काही पट रक्कम दिली जाते..त्या रकमेला म्हणतात - Sum assured .
आता प्रश्न असा पडतो की इन्शुरन्स कंपनी इतके पटीने पैसे आणते तरी कुठून..??

ह्यासाठी इन्शुरन्स कंपन्या २ गोष्टी करतात - १.मागच्या वर्षी समजा १०० लोकांनी पॉलिसी घेतली आणि त्यातले १० लोकांनी क्लेम केला तर ह्या बाकीच्या ९० लोकांच्या प्रीमियममधून क्लेम केलेल्या लोकांना रक्कम दिली जाते

Now that #LIC IPO valuation is in public domain , lot of question would be asked what is #EmbeddedValue, her is some clarity
Definition: Embedded value is the sum of the net asset value and present value of future profits of a life insurance company.

Description: This measure considers future profits from existing business only, and ignores the possibility of introduction of new policies and hence profits from those are not taken into account.

Source :…

#LICIPO to open for subscription on May 4, priced at ₹902 - ₹949.
#IPO valued at 1.11x embedded value.

Below valuation comparison with global and domestic peers.

Originally the EV for LIC was ₹1.25 trillion , after changing the methodology it is ₹5.4 trillion

Are you buying Insurance this year just to save taxes?

DON'T. 🤫

It could cost you more than it saves in taxes!

Here's how ⤵️
Suppose there is a Mr Rahul who gets Rs 7.5 Lakh a year as his salary (with no other sources of income).

➡️ In India, if you earn more than 5 Lakh, you have to pay taxes.

But there are ways by which you can reduce your Taxable income. Some of them are:

° By investing up to 1.5 Lakh in PF, NSC, ELSS, Insurance, etc (80C)
° By investing up to 50 Thousand in NPS (80CCD)
