Talk Back

Trading in the stock market is risky but also immensely rewarding if one understands the basics before taking the plunge. The issue aimed at clearing the mist surrounding equities while offering advice on what’s hot and what’s not.

The cover story was an eye-opener (“India’s Most-Wanted Stocks”, 28 December). I found the information on energy sector quite interesting.The analysis of large-cap stocks was made even better by detailing the profiles of the leaders.

The article on temporary structures that can be added to one’s residence was very informative (“Real Estate addons for your Home”, 14 December). The article was very educative as we came to know that there are manufacturers in India for pre-fabricated rooms. However, the details of the manufacturers were not mentioned.

We are glad that you found the article informative. Our objective is to inform the readers on the latest developments taking place in the field of utility-cum-finance. We have already mailed you the details of the manufacturers.

Credit is really a trap as once you take a loan you pay interest on it and naturally the principal amount is also to be repaid (“Upfront: Credit Push”, 28 December). Credit is now very easily available as is evident from telephone advertising calls for credit from various banks and for credit card. The trap is laid by saying it is free of cost but there are always some charges and other implications. So before one is lured by freebies one must read the terms and conditions properly. Remember nothing is free. One has to pay for the services and the credit.

Mr Kapasi, we do agree with you that one should not spend beyond one’s means. And yes, nothing is for free. But credit is no longer a dirty word. To explain how to lead life on credit smartly we had also done a cover story on the power of credit two issues back (“The Power of EMI”, 14 December).

I just received the inaugural copy of MONEY TODAY (2 Nov) The paper and photos used were good but there was not enough reading material. Other magazines covering the stock markets have regular printing quality and paper but sufficient text to attract the reader. I would suggest that you add board meeting, book closure, etc. in the magazine.

Thanks for the feedback. But MONEY TODAY has evolved way beyond what it was in its launch issue and one of the new sections include a regular four-page coverage of stocks and sectors. We hope you have, by now, been able to see and review our subsequent issues as well and have found many of your suggestions already incorporated.
