  1. The way you rectify your mispronunciations without editing not just makes the video natural but also brings relief.

  2. Sir I wish I could have watched your videos when I started my job 15 years back. But its always better to be late than never. Thanks for your videos, it really provides a great source of learning regarding investments.

  3. I am 20 and I started investing in mutual funds and receiving returns, because of you Ankur sir and Pranjal sir.

  4. Hey Ankur – We always expect the best from you being retail investor centric. Small cases have a lot of drawbacks which nobody talks about –

    1. The returns shown on small cases are only for illustration purposes as these funds were never started 5 years ago. This is a new service & has shown past performance to highlight it’s selling.

    2. Small case charge on every rebalancing of stocks in a portfolio that is quarterly or half yearly.

    3. Multiple selling orders quickly leads to high STCG tax.

    4. We can surely go with Index funds or Direct MF with as low as Rs 500 rather than Rs 5000 or more. (They have very less expense ratio)

    5. Actual CAGR of these Small Cases is very poor which are written in the factsheet of these small cases in very small words.

    The actual performance of these small cases is similar/less than Index. If you feel I’m wrong feel free to correct me.

  5. Ankur Sir!

    At 7:54 the example, If I am getting INR 50 for a INR 500 stock then that should be better than getting INR 100 from a INR 2000 stock.

    Invested capital of Company X is 1/4th the CMP of RIL. But the the net dividend amount is 1/2 only.

  6. 08:20
    I believe that it is the % that counts. Because if we buy 4 shares of co. X we would be having twice the dividend of Reliance.

  7. I am in my late 40, I always had interest in stock marketing, but got no one knowledgeable enough to talk about it. These days I have been seeing es about it, found Pranjal, and Ankur very good on it, getting a lot of learning and my doubts clear on various financial aspect. Thanks a lot. Best wishes and blessings 💗

  8. After studying the trajectory of stocks though large assets like real estate, dividend paying stocks of blue chip companies, gold etc. Just buy the one you can afford today.

    • The best time to invest? Funny, because in the past four months I’ve lost over £ 20,000 on the stock market which is the biggest I’ve lost since venturing into stock investing.

    • I made a few mistakes a year ago, I was sure I had learned the ropes, invested on my own and lost thousands of euros . It was the saddest year for my growing business, after a lot of persuasion from a colleague I decided to try the action again. this time I invested with the help of Gerald Parker, a US based stockbroker. I made € 125,000 in profit a few months after investing. I recovered my loss and stabilized my business.

  9. Ankur Warikoo ji, Just want to say one phrase: THANK YOU! Your communication is so lucid and simple to understand; your research is to authentic and, Most Important, you are so grounded and humble that you seem to understand the financial needs of millions! Now, that’s pretty astounding. Keep up the great work, please. Jai Ho. Jai Hind.

  10. Wow!!! You are a gentleman Mr.Warikoo ,who care for your extended family on YouTube tooo… Just a big thank you for guiding us on our growth investments and savings. Cheers 🥂

  11. The quantum of a 2-3 % return should be meaningful… You probably would need to invest 1 crore to earn anything substantial in dividend absolute amount!


  13. Interesting , the stock market is currently experiencing a decline while bond yields are on the rise. However, there seems to be skepticism amongst investors regarding the Federal Reserve’s plan to continue increasing interest rates until inflation is stabilized. As for myself, I find myself at a crossroads, uncertain whether to liquidate my $250,000 stock portfolio. I’m seeking advice on the best strategy to capitalize on this current bear market.

  14. 8 minutes Relience ka stock 2000 Rs dusre stock ka 500 Rs R 2000=1*100=100Rs D 500=1*50=50 but here in actually D*4/50*4=200 Rs . So “D” is the better option
