20 great stocks to buy in 2008 (BS Smart Investor Team)

20 great stocks to buy in 2008 (BS Smart Investor Team) Stock selection will be the key factor in determining returns in 2008, given concerns of a global slowdown and premium valuations in domestic markets. Year 2007 saw the market deliver good returns amidst volatility, especially in the second half, thanks to global concerns. The BSE Sensex was up a good 46.6 per cent, helped by strong foreign and domestic inflows. And what led to these inflows was none other than a strong performance by India Inc. For investors, the moot question is how will 2008 be? The answer is not simple given that none of the global concerns have eased, while the Indian rupee is still firm and India Inc is experiencing a deceleration in growth rates. "Year 2008 will be difficult globally, although it is not yet known how deep the US downturn will be," says Andrew Holland, managing director -- strategic risk group, DSP Merrill Lynch. While India's vulnerability to global shocks has been put to test…

selection of stocks some fundamentals

parsvnath deveopers--good growth stock

Real estate stocks also gained during the week. Major gainers here include Ansal Housing (27%), Parsvnath Developers (23%) and DLF (10%). This was seemingly a result of reports that the mutual fund regulator, AMFI and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, cleared the path to the launch of India's first real estate mutual fund (or REIT, Real Estate Investment Trust). This shall enable small investors, who wish to be a part of the buoyant real estate sector without having to purchase properties, to benefit from the long-term opportunity in the sector. On the other hand, REITs shall allow real estate firms to raise more capital to fund their expansion and development plans. For the uninitiated, the principle activity of a REIT is to invest in diverse portfolio of properties with the main objective to earn an attractive return from rental income and long term capital growth.

Three ways to become a smart IPO investor

An IPO or initial public offering is when a private company sells its stock to the public for the first time. IPOs are common during booming markets such as the one we have now and there have been more than a 100 IPOs in India during 2007. IPOs can make investors a lot of money because stocks are often underpriced (sold at a price less than their real value) which mean that they jump sharply on the very first day of trading and often continue moving upwards. However as usual there is no free lunch and while IPOs often offer attractive returns they also carry additional risks compared to regular stocks. Here are some basic tips to make smart decisions when it comes to IPOs. Understand the processThe process of pricing and auctioning an IPO is quite complicated compared to buying regular stocks and you should acquaint yourself with the details. For example it's important to understand that many IPOs are oversubscribed. This means that investors demand far more shares than are being…

A narrowing valuation gap?

Public sector banks will take a few more years to match the valuations of private banks, but only if they resolve the key issues that are restricting their growth. In a volatile market, it is a dilemma to choose between value (slow growth, low valuation) and growth stocks (high growth, high valuation). A classic example to prove this fact is the Indian banking sector, which is dominated by large number of public sector banks (PSBs) which come under the value category whereas the private banks are classified as growth stocks. This is because PSBs, despite having huge network (branches) and employee base, lag behind their private sector counterparts, which are far ahead in terms of technology, products and processes. And thus comes the valuations gap. Market participants and even fund managers feel that the gap can be narrowed only when PSBs catch up with their private counterparts in terms of people, produc…
