Can Someone Please Guide Newbie's Like Me


(Kartik Dutta) #1

Community Members, I would like to ask a few Basic Questions, Please Bear with Me

  1. I would really like to know what all the different categories in the Forum mean, as only a few of them have some written description about them. Can someone Please guide me on that side. Also, could someone tell if the valuepickr.com site (not the forum) is kept up to date, or is abandoned and only the forum is used now-days,Also are the resources written there still valid or useful for a beginner.

Where should a new member ask questions that were supposed to be asked here, as there seems to be no category as “Investing Basics Q&A” as is written by the Admin.

3)Can someone please guide Me and the other newbie’s on how to get started with the forums on how to get started with the forum in general and equity Valuation. I have read the following thread

Do the senior’s still recommend this kind of approach and If so then should we analyze the Annual Report of a well known company or an sort of “unheard” one. Where can we get additional info for “unheard” companies other than AR.

Please try to reply and be patient. It would be great if some seniors replied to this thread and pin it at the top, along with a few other “Beginner” thread’s so that the newbie’s don’t feel so intimidated or perplexed with the forums

Hi Karthik,

Every one in this forum was 1st time investor once. I have been hanging around the forum for around 3 months now and I am still a newbie in the sideline. I am yet to make my first stock purchase. From what I have seen by reading every post, the seniors in this forum are through and know what they are doing & it means business. Business here is to “Separate wheat from Chaff”, first observe.

It is “learn by observing.” Then take it to next level by “testing the waters” of the markets. Patience is Virtue and we the students of the business world need that. As famous detective Sherlock says,

I hope we together will learn a lot.
Mr.Kay
