If the stock doesn't pay dividends then it has little intrinsic's value is dependent upon someone else valuing it more... eventually it will "top off"

Hey guys. The situation is no where close to what this article suggests!
The share market has already recovered more than half of the losses.

Speculation on rise in US interest rates is creating this problem as emerging markets depend a lot on foreign funds.

But everything said and done, nobody is thinking of suicide here.

Are you a Trader or an Investor?
It's Important to Know the Difference
Are you investing in a stock or a company? That may sound like confusing question, but it is an important distinction and can get you in trouble if you donít know the answer? First, letís be clear that either answer is okay. The problem arises when investors confuse one with the other or start out investing in a stock, then change their minds when something goes wrong.

If you buy a stock:

You are buying because you sense a price movement for some reason (through technical analysis, market/sector news, and so forth)
You are interested in profiting from a price movement and, most likely, selling and moving on to another stock
You have no real interest in the company behind the stock other than it is in the right place at the right time

If you invest in a company:

You have done a thorough analysis of the company and believe it has long-term growth potential
You understand what the company does and its position in its market
If the price drops, you know why and can determine whether this is a short-term situation or a change that will have a long-term impact on the stockís price
A person who buys a stock is more precisely a trader, while a person who buys a company is an investor.

A trader may not hold a stock very long or may hold it a long time, depending on its performance. An investor buys a company with the intent of holding on to the stock for a long time.

When things Go Bad

As long as the stockís price is performing well, neither the trader, nor the investor has much of a problem. However, when the stockís price starts falling, thatís another matter.

The smart trader has an escape plan in place to prevent small loses from becoming big loses. The trader has no emotional attachment to the stock, so getting rid of the loser at a predetermined point is easy. Many traders find that dumping a stock when it has fallen 7% or 8%, a good way to keep loses small. If you set your sell level higher, you are in danger of letting a normal market blip trip your sell signal, only to see the stock and market rebound. The problem arises when the trader decides they really like this stock and donít want to give it up so easily. In other words, theyíve quit being traders and become investors.

The Problem

The problem is they usually donít know enough about the company to make intelligent decisions about whether to hold the stock or let it go. They are no longer smart traders and they arenít smart investors.
Any decision they make as an investor at this point will be a guess.

The investor is probably better off when things go bad, but only if you have the courage of your convictions. If the stock price drops, reassess the company and the market.

Did you miss something? Has something changed? Or is now the time to add to your holdings?

Donít jump on the ďsell at 7% lossĒ rule if you truly believe in the companyís long-term potential. If you become a trader at this point, you are robbing your future.

It is okay to be either a trader or an investor, just donít try to be both with the same stock. team

Hi friends.
Market is too volatile and following lower trend.
However this is the best time for those who prefer delivery.
Just short or long term investment at this time can give you lot of profit.

But invest only in fundamentally strong scripts.
Right now Infosys is too low , best time to Buy it..
Others you can go for are TCS , ONGC , WIPRO etc , prefer strong trustworthy only.

Looking ahead to 2007: Where can investors continue to expect stock market gains?
By Gregory Solomon

In 2007, investors may do well to consider high quality, dividend paying stocks, as well as shares of companies with potential for growth in the global arena. There are still many investment opportunities internationally, where valuations are lower and a weaker U.S. dollar can enhance returns. Additionally, investors should consider mutual funds with exposure to commodities. Though the easy money in this sector is already in the bank, there is still the prospect that both China and India will increase consumption of basic materials as their economies continue to expand. Furthermore, since commodities are not correlated to the U.S. stock market, this strategy provides additional portfolio diversification.

Investors that are willing to take an optimistic view of 2007 may want to consider industries that have historically performed well during sustained periods of economic growth, such as the technology sector. While Wall Street has focused lately on the Dow's new record highs, it might be a surprise to learn that during 2006 technology stocks have actually underperformed the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The tech-heavy NASDAQ 100 index has returned about seven percent through the end of October. Compare that with the DJIAís 12.7 percent gain. In fact, the NASDAQ index remains more than 50 percent below its all-time peak.
After more than seven years of being out of favor, many technology stocks are trading at attractive valuations. Additionally, this sector is generating significant cash flow, which is now resulting in improved balance sheets with very little debt. Furthermore, some of these companies have even started to pay dividends.

After years of cost cutting, many of largest U.S. companies are sitting on piles of cash and are planning to increase their technology expenditures to increase productivity. Since 2004, IT spending as a percentage of our economy, is gradually improving and is likely to move higher. Therefore, should economic growth in the U.S. begin to slow, the technology sector would be one of the few places where investors can get accelerated growth.
Currently, many large manufacturing companies are buying important new semiconductor products that were not available just two or three years ago. For example, several smaller technology companies now make processor companion computer chips that enhance performance by increasing memory and extending the battery life of components within cell phones, cars and home appliances.
The positive news surrounding the technology sector has recently gotten the attention of Wall Street. Even a number of value-oriented mutual fund managers, who have historically avoided technology stocks, are starting to increase their holdings in the technology sector. According to a recent survey of money managers by the Russell Investment Group, 56 percent are now "bullish" on technology stocks, versus just 18 percent who say they are "bearish" on the sector. As we look ahead to 2007, the investment community appears more optimistic about the technology sector than about any other group except healthcare.

Nice post. Its always better to think before investing money in stock market. Investment should be done in share market but with the aim to increase our funds so speculation should not be the mode of investment. Investors should know why they are investing money in any stock.

Seems like itís a nice blog. So let us also add something useful in can be very fruitful also if we follow technical levels closely. Itís a common saying that stock market can change fortune in either way. But now the question is how to earn money from the Indian stock market.
Traders are advised to strictly follow technical analyses and investors can follow fundamental analysis. Many analysts say itís not wise to follow technical and fundamental analysis together. But we say what the problem is if one does so? As more knowledge will add up things will not have any negative impact.
