On Diwali, all of us worship the goddess Lakshmi but do we really show her the respect that is due to her?
If you look at the way you manage your own money or investments, you may find that this is often not the case.
Don't you spend more time and effort researching a 5000 or 10,000 Rupees purchase than you do a 50,000 or maybe, Rs. 5 lacs stock investment?
Very often the latter is done based on some tip from a friend, or even from someone anonymous on a chat group, maybe a half heard 'expert' opinion on a TV channel or something of the kind.
There is little thought that goes into the investment decision: based on what parameters are you buying that stock, where does it fit into your portfolio, what does your portfolio look like in the first place, how is it split between various sectors or asset classes - most such questions are not addressed at all.
Once you think about it you will realise that no matter how many lamps you are lighting before the goddess Lakshmi you are not really showing her enough respect.
This Diwali take a pledge to really start respecting her which means respecting your own investment corpus.
Whether you are doing it yourself or have an investment advisor of some sort, decide today that you are going to use a proper system for investing and monitoring your portfolio. Don't invest haphazardly and without a system.

Economists Think Dollar's Fall May Explain the Recent ‘Rally’ by Steve Liesman
Einstein taught us about relativity in nature. Now come Devina Mehra and Shankar Sharma of First Global to teach us about relativity in financial markets -- and raise some serious questions about just what is driving stock prices.
First Global reports are quite credible and, on occasion, more than that.
What prompts this mention is Intel's earnings report and the fact that First Global has had a pretty good bead on the company and its stock.

Personality counts: Walmart's frugal, but Target charms
"It's better to take a slight hit on [profit] margins and keep on moving and inventing," says First Global Securities. And at least for now, Target is inventing in a way that appeals to consumers with money to spend.
At 11 times trailing earnings, Energizer is cheaper; Gillette's multiple is 25. But cheaper doesn't mean better, says First Global.
