Hi, I am Kritesh Abhishek.

I'm 23, Entrepreneur, Stock Investor, Electrical Engineer, Car-Enthusiast, Fitness conscious and self-improving freak... In my free time, either I'll be reading the stock-market related news or some personal finance books. (Btw, although I have two names, most people call me Kritesh. And Kritesh works well too).

I am a graduate of the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Warangal with Bachelors’ of Technology in Electrical Engineering, Class of 2016.

At NITW, along with my core engineering, I was also exposed to courses like Basic Finance, Engineering Economics, Accountancy etc.  It was during my college days when I got infatuated with stocks and companies. Although the undergraduate study in Electrical Engineering was attracting, however, I found the study of investing & finance more fascinating. From then on, I developed a keen interest towards the Stock Market.

Besides, I also interned at National University of Singapore, Singapore during my third year- which I consider as the best year of my college life. During this time period, I realized how people in developed countries are participating seriously in the equity market. On the other hand, Indians are missing out on the opportunity to invest in the growing economy of our country.

After graduation, I started working as a Manager in Quality Assurance (QA) department at Tata Motors, Pune, India. This was the time when I met my idol, RATAN TATA. In the words of my parents, my position at Tata Motors can be considered as a safe, secured and respectable job. However, I resigned within 18 months of my joining to chase my entrepreneurial dreams.

Anyways, back to my original story, when I first started investing in the Stock Market (during my college days), I had many doubts regarding my investments. I wasn’t certain when to buy, when to sell, how much I should invest, what is the correct time to enter the market, how long I should invest, should I prefer short-term profits or long-term capital appreciation, etc.

Although I already studied many great books before entering the market like ‘The Intelligent Investor’ by Ben Graham, ‘Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits’ by Philip Fisher, ‘One Up On Wall Street’ by Peter Lynch, ‘Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing’ by Robert Kiyosaki etc. However, when it came to my first investment, it was all 'my decisions' and 'my confidence' that mattered. Slowly, I realized that it’s the personal experience that matters the most. Moreover, the earlier you start investing, the better are the outcomes. (Quick note: You can find the list of my favorite stock market investment books here).

Now, by no means, I claim to be a financial guru or a stock expert. I'm still learning a lot every single day in my investing journey and my blogs aim to share my learnings with the readers. However, after having a decent experience in the stock market, I am sure that I can help out all those who need a little motivation & guidance to invest intelligently in the stock market.

Finally, here's the golden rule of investing that I strictly follow- "Invest early, invest consistently and invest for the long-term".

Same don’t try to make all people chef to make dosa we want to eat but we do not waneed to cook something give it clearoyal what to buy at what price ,stoploss, target and time frame no budy have time to read all these. So clearly just specify script, cmp, target, stoploss, and time frame.

    • Dear Sunil. Thank you for sharing your views.
      If you want stock recommendations, you can go to different financial advisors. You can find thousands of them on the internet.
      As I already mentioned above, I’m not a SEBI registered stock advisor and hence not authorized to give recommendations.
      Only a registered research analyst/investment advisor can give you these recommendations (script, cmp, target, stoploss, and time frame). SEBI is very strict on this rule and I agree too. You don’t go to an unauthorized doctor to get medicines, right? Then, why would you ask recommendations from an unauthorized person? I can share my opinions and educate the people, but buy/sell calls at an exact price is not feasible.

  12. Hello Sir I am very inspired by you articles. Please tell me where should I invest Rs.65000/- as lumbsum investment for the next 20 years .

    • Hi Sohidul. Great to hear that you are willing to invest in Indian stocks. However, I cannot give stock recommendations because I’m not a financial advisor/Registered research analyst. I hope you understand. Cheers!!
