  • I have heard Mr.Parekh. N I keep my mind open, a good listner when someone is
    talking. A bit lethargic because trying to do many things leaves little time to be
    active -I mean a trader- investor. Hence allows things – investments – slip. But in
    overall average annual return for last 5 years is somthing between 30/40%. Little
    investment in MFs because I feel “why someone shuld make money, mean MF's
    invewstment manager by way of his salary, perks n bonuses? I donot have time to
    watch his performance n shift from one scheme to other. Rarely puts money in
    IPOs/NFOs. Do not tey to time the market. Now that systemic setup has improved
    a lot -than what was earlier- when I want cash I just sale. T-day is sold 30Bayer crop
    science @823/- My purchase price -10 year back Rs 100/ 100×100 my investment, 10000/-
