The results are in, and let me tell you…this was tough.
Just to review, the idea behind the “I love Safal Niveshak” Contest was simple…just send me one reason you like Safal Niveshak, or one suggestion for improving this initiative.
I want to thank everyone who participated!
If there’s one thing I must tell you, it’s that there were way too many great submissions for this to be an easy exercise. So the choice of the winners was incredibly tight.
I could have easily had 10 or more winners, but instead chose to expand the winner pool to 4, instead of the originally announced 2.
So, there remains the first place for both these entries…
- I love Safal Niveshak because…
- I ‘still don’t’ love Safal Niveshak because…
…plus 2 honourable mentions that will also receive special prizes.
So here we go.
First Place for “I love Safal Niveshak because…”
“To love someone, we need to have better understandings and this is the area where Safal Niveshak excels among others. Very beautifully it is making small and new investors aware of market concepts.
Encouraging investors to become self-educated and self-decisive, which is very rarely seen.
Mostly small investors lose money on some recommendations where they have no idea why it was recommended. Efforts of Safal Niveshak will surely create thousands of self-dependent investors who can take decisions by their understandings.”
~ Nilesh Singhal
First Place for “I still don’t love Safal Niveshak because…”
“Can we go for stock specific discussions? We can discuss the merits and demerits of companies with supporting facts and figures. Recently you have started this but it will be better if readers also can participate on the same with their comments, I hope.”
~ Hari Kumar B

First Honourable Mention
“I love Safal Niveshak because of the content you have been providing on investing strategies.
Till I started reading Safal Niveshak newsletter, my investing strategies were vague and I was not believing that a normal investor could evaluate a business before he can invest, your newsletter are awakening “investor inside me” – every day I learn something new and hence I look forward for the Safal Niveshak newsletter.
I have been recommending your newsletter to many of my friends…Thanks for your efforts to help a normal human understand investing strategies…I’m loving the content you have been delivering…Keep up the Great work and Thanks ton to you.”

Second Honourable Mention
“Internet today is a sea of information. Sometimes I find that we have been loaded with an extra dose of information and hence lose ourselves in this ocean of knowledge. However, Safal Niveshak caught my eyes for the lucid and succinct, thought provoking ideas it is disseminating.
The author himself is an experienced analyst who adds more value to his writings. The pearls of wisdom he shares in his articles are appealing to my heart. Safal Niveshak has rightly said that today the business channels on TV, the brokers and analyst who come on the program are taking the lay investors for a ride.
Therefore Safal Niveshak which is an endeavour to help the lay investor should find a rightful place among investors. This can be achieved if we as subscribers spread the good message to our relatives and friends and draw in good investors who are ready to run the long marathon rather than the 100 meters.”
