Announcing: The Safal Niveshak Value Investing Contest 2014

Here’s your chance to showcase your analysis skills to the Safal Niveshak tribe, and in the process win a prize if your entry gets chosen amongst the best.

Contest Rules

  1. Write a 2,000 word (max.) report on one Indian company of your choice. It may be a great, or good, or a gruesome business.
  2. Deadline for report submission by email to me is 10th March 2014.
  3. Your chosen company can be from any industry.
  4. The stock must have a market capitalization of more than Rs 100 crore.
  5. The idea must be well researched (by you). Your analysis must cover these areas:
    • Company history and business
    • Competition
    • Financial strength
    • Management quality (have they been good or bad allocators of capital)
    • Risks (what can go wrong)
    • Valuation (challenge the market’s current valuation – whether the stock is overvalued, undervalued, or fairly valued – instead of calculating your own)
  6. The report would be exclusive to Safal Niveshak. But you can post an abstract at other places and link to the full report on Safal Niveshak.

Evaluation & Rewards
I will evaluate each submitted entry ONLY on the quality and simplicity of analysis, though good presentation and proper language is more than welcome (would save me editing time!)

There are three prizes to be won –

  • 1st Prize – Books of choice, worth Rs 5,000/-
  • 2nd Prize – Books of choice, worth Rs 3,000/-
  • 3rd Prize – Books of choice, worth Rs 2,000/-

All submitted entries would be published on Safal Niveshak (the author can remain anonymous if he/she wants).

This contest is now open. Remember, the deadline is 10th March 2014.

  1. sir,i have made one research report so where i have to send research report please help me out

  2. Ravi Shankar Duggirala says:

    Hi Vishal
    Is this report something similar to the STOCK TALK reports ? Also do we need to specify the company that we have chosen, in advance? So that we can avoid more than one person analyzing the same company?

    • The format is almost the same, as I have outlined in the rules – things to be covered.

      No, you don’t need to convey the name of the company in advance. More than one analysis on one company is welcome, because we may be able to look at different people looking at things in a different way. Hope this helps.

  3. Up with my pen and book, not for the prize though…

  4. Great way to share ideas and approach with each other…

  5. Can u post your email id

  6. Nelson Christian says:

    I have never written a report before but I do have few companies in mind. I will admit honestly that the prizes on offer are very tempting to me personally. Thanks Vishal for this opportunity and also for having me as part of Mastermind.

  7. Ravi Shankar says:

    Hi Vishal
    Is the word limit strictly to be followed? Most of the reports that you have posted in STOCK TALK are well above 2000 words. Just wanted some clarification on this, whether its a hard and fast rule or just a hint for keeping the report concise and brief?

  8. Ravi Shankar says:

    Vishal, Could you please extend the deadline by one more week!

  9. @vishal, when u declare the result of research contest
