  • Why you should buy equity, not just gold

    1. 1. Why you should buy Equity, not just Gold
    2. 2. Love for Gold in India • Indian women’s love for gold knows no bounds. You want the finest jewellery for festivals or special occasions in your life. • You may notice that husbands are keen to buy gold too. It is considered as a sound investment. • But, it’s time to also consider equity as an investment avenue. • Here are reasons why: • Value Jump • Cheap Valuations • Trickle-Down Effect
    3. 3. Value Jump: Equity • 10 years ago, 100 shares of Infosys cost around Rs 50,000. Today, it is Rs 3,30,000. • Similarly, 100 shares of ITC, one of the biggest stocks on the market, were bought for Rs 3,500 in 2004. Today, they will cost around Rs 35,000. This is a 600%-1000% jump.
    4. 4. Value Jump: Gold • In contrast to equity, the price of gold has jumped 400% from Rs 5,800 in 2004, to around Rs 29,000 today. • This means, investing in the stock market too can earn you great profits.
    5. 5. Price-to-Earnings Ratio • As companies grow, share prices rise. When the rise in a stock’s price is slower than the growth in earnings, the valuations are said to have got cheaper. This is measured by the Price-to-Earnings or PE ratio.
    6. 6. Cheap Valuations • The NSE Nifty’s PE ratio is currently hovering around the long term average. This means that, there is potential for it to rise from the current levels. • This means, it is a right time to buy stocks.
    7. 7. Owning A Stock • When you buy a stock, you are buying a portion of a company. • It is a financially healthy institution that makes profits, and shares part of with you as an investor. When you buy a share (especially in a public offering), you are indirectly benefiting the company.
    8. 8. Trickle-Down Effect • The company’s prosperity, eventually, allows it to invest more. Higher investments lead to greater profits and higher income levels. • This, supports more consumption and improves quality of life. In the end, it is a win-win for you as an investor
