Another short investing story to help put successful investing into context.

David loves games, which is a bit of an understatement. He owns 756 board games, which I assume is a record if record-keepers kept track of such a thing.
#invest #nifty #investors I found David playing an old arcade game at our office. I asked if he prefers board games to video games. He wasn't sure, so I asked a different question, meant as a joke but it elicited a great response.

In 1888, in Curacao......

A bridge was built to connect two parts of the city. A toll tax was proposed but officials wanted it to be a "progressive" tax. They decided rich people will pay more to cross.

So how to identify rich and poor quickly? They had an idea, rich people wear shoes ( it's 1888 remember ), so they decided to charge a tax based on that. If you cross the bridge wearing shoes, you pay a tax, but if you are barefoot, you cross for free.

Difficult to avoid
Brilliant idea

*Irrational exuberance and rational humility*

By R Gopalakrishnan

The writer was director, Tata Sons and vice chairman, Hindustan Unilever during his career

The disconnect between the fundamentals of several companies and their market valuations has widened over the last year. While this exuberance may well prove to be justified for a few companies, for most, it will be judged to have been thoroughly misplaced. 

Disruption is to be welcomed, it is a fantastic event. As history shows, the line between disruption and mania is thin—

*Pearls of financial wisdom* 💰💰

1) Bonds are for storing wealth and equities are for creation of wealth.

2) In my opinion, the biggest asset one can have is zero debt.

3) The greatest discipline in personal finance is living below your means.
#investing 4) As Ben Carlson says, emotions cannot be back tested. That’s why past bear market always looks like opportunities and future ones scary.

5) Early financial independence and early retirement are completely different. To me, the former is a blessing and the latter is a curse.

Doctor’s round table on India Today Channel having 4 highly reputed Doctors panel. It was very informative & I would like to pen down few important points made by these qualified Doctors :
1) Plasma therapy is not at all recommended in the 2nd wave by WHO or any other Organisations around the World. It is waste of time & money.
2) If needed, CT scan of lungs to be done between 5th to 7th day, otherwise report may be misguiding.
3) No need of any Medication in the 1st week of infection, except Paracetamol (if fever persists)

The book, "The six husbands every wife should have" (the book is written by a husband - Dr. Steven Craig) talks about how a husband has to constantly grow, evolve and renew himself at least six times, by the time he turns 60.... For as people grow, their relationship and the relationship's needs change. (The book's premise is that women do it naturally as they become home-keepers and mothers and grandmothers.)

A small thread based on a Whatsapp report on Specturm holdings :

Do your due diligence:

If one look at the total spectrum portfolio of #VodafoneIdea and its total worth and the expiry date and compare that with Airtel and Jio . VIL is the market leader in holding highest quantities in 900, 1800, 2100 and 2500 MHz ranges. It holds 143, 178, 195, 370 mhz in each band. Airtel and Jio have less spectrum than VIL.

Valididity of VIL`s spectrum. Most of them has starts expiring from 2030 onwards only.
