Will this company help me acheive my dream...I plan to accumulate money by the following plan..heard that TCS sends people for lot of onsite projects..so in case if they send me to US for 2 years then the calculation is as follows..
I hope to save around 1.5 lakhs/month..so 24*1.5=36 lakhs...

and within 10 years I guess i can go onsite minimum 4-5 times...

so I will have around 50 lahs..that 50 lakhs if I invest in equities and real estate I feel I can earn 4 crore by my 30th age..

Ranchers what do u feel...please reply...If you feel some other company other than TCS can help acheive my dream please suggest those companies also...

ofcourse there is. And why 4 you can earn 40 and I am not joking. But ya to convert your 50L to 4 crores you need to be a better financial investor than a developer. And in that case I suggest why not quit your job, do an MBA and get into investment banking or trading. Then even 40 will seem small. All this ofcoz provided you are that good.

Put your money in GAIL, NTPC and Petronet LNG shares. If India-Iran pipeline materializes money will grow.

Hi Pradeep,
IPO of Shopper's Stop is coming into market.
What you say, is it good to invest in that ...
Any other share you would like to suggest ...
Thanks.

Now a days a IPO promoters have become greedy. PNB,Allahabad bank and 3i infotech, jayprakash hydro are all trading below the issue price. OBC is highly priced at 235-260 rs band. Avoid OBC at any cost. The markets are like to correct for some more time.

Shoppers Stop is also highly priced but it likely that there will be listing gain. I am planning to apply but will do so only on the last day.There was some controversy regarding the issue itself as the Gauhati HC stopped the issue but SC cleared it y'day. Visit nse-india.com to know the subscription details.

Did you apply in Gokaldas IPO? It is quoting at 660 rs. Issue price was 435.
HAPPY INVESTING!!

If you had bought $1000.00 worth of Nortel stock a year ago, it would now be
worth $49.00.
With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original $1,000.00.
With WorldCom, you would have less than $5.00 left.
If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one
year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the 10 cent
deposit, you would have $214.00.

Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink beer heavily
and recycle.


Cheers,
Vinit

Go For ICICI, it operates with both BSE and NSE. And u can buy IPOs online too. Even ShareKhan is good, but they operate only with NSE. Sharekhan is present is Pune. I am not sure of any other cities. But ICICI will be everywhere.

Dont invest all your money in equity market. Invest some thing in bond market so that if share market falls, you can sell your bonds at higher price and reduce the loss.

Suresh,

You are making a lot of assumptions. Amongst those are:
1) The IT industry is going to be blooming as is now for the next 10 years. With the US economy still not doing that great and the Indian IT industry still doing their major business with US firms, it's tough to predict the next few years, save 10 years. And definitely, many other countries will catch up.
2) Currency fluctuations. The dollar is getting weaker and if it goes below Rs.40, things will get very nasty for the Indian IT industry.
3) It will be extremely tough for you to save Rs 1.5 lakhs per month here. That amounts to a savings of $3,500 per month. Definitely, TCS will not pay you that kind of money if they were to send you onsite (you have very little experience). If you are considering them paying you the Indian salary while you are onsite, then they would have to pay you a nominal salary in dollars here. And trust me, you will have a tough time saving even $1000 per month. And the Indian salary won't definitely be Rs 1.5 lakhs. I gathered this after discussions with many people from TCS, Wipro, Satyam, Syntel and Infosys.
4) You are 21. There is no way TCS will send you to US so soon without much experience. You will have to wait for atleast a couple of years.
5) If you want to invest in stocks with your money, consult a financial advisor or follow the stock markets dilligently. You could lose your lifetime savings in a blink of an eye if you are not careful.

Anand

I don't think that it is a good idea to have a plan, that is 10 years long, and measured in income / savings. I think you are going to find that your priorities at 30 is going to much different than your priorities at 21.

ICICI bank or kotak street would be good. The problem with ICICI is that the site is too slow (many say so) but it has more facilities than Kotak street. Sharekhan , I am not sure.

Some companies have started lay offs in India. Oracle *India* did lay off people in the name of PeopleSoft merger. TCS did not have encouraging results. TCS plans to reduce onsite opp in the future. I am sure you guys have read artciles on Rediff site posted couple of days ago.

Thanx for your suggestions..yes I do invest in stock markets..I use share khan..That is good...ICICI charges 1% and I dont find that attractive.it hits my profit..

I invested in gokaldas recently..got 100 shares made a cool profit of 20k investing 45k...Apart from that I made good profit investing in Arvind mills and Jindal within a month....well I do spend most percentage of my time doing research on stocks...

The Dollar doesn't look so good, but that is great for foreign stocks
and bonds. And even the negative for the US stock market is an
opportunity for those that understand how to benefit from a market
decline though hedges.

I hold only selective stocks for long term..otherwise I hold it for only a short period..so for i have been able to make a profit of 5-6% a month..that translates to 5*12=60%..sometimes it is even 15% a month..I even make money in a bearish market by short selling.

Some of you who read my posts must have thought that I am greedy..But no,I am just being practical..ultimately people respect you only for your money you have..and I am confident that I can make good money in due course of time provided I have a good starting investment of around 50 lakhs..thatz why i am so interested to go to onsite and earn money..

If nothing else works out..I am planning to go to USA.I have already got admits in couple of good universities(Georgia tech,USC,cincinnatti)..I planning to go for MS(comp science)..hope i will make my aim come true..Thanks for your suggestions..

How was 100 shares alloted to you ? Which category did you apply. No retail investor got more than 60 shares.

What makes you feel that 4 crore is enough for getting respect. It is not enough.

This means that you are already rich. So target of 4 crores is less is pretty low. :roll:

ICICI brokerage is costly. So look for sharekhan or kotak.
