Tutorial – Bonds (New!)

We have been speaking on our Slack channels about stuff like “Shriram Transport bonds are at 12%!” and so on. This sounds very exciting but what, really, are bonds?

There is no easy answer. Bonds sound like handcuffs, and to many companies they are those indeed. But the idea is simple. And to further simplify this instrument, we are creating a multi-pronged tutorial on Fixed Income: Buying Bonds. And as part of this series exclusive to our Premium subscribers, we walk you through the basics of Bonds, Bonds Trading, as well as nuances like:

  • Doing Internal rate of return calculations on bonds to find out what they really return
  • Taxation in bonds, and operational logistics like record dates
  • Building Long Term Bond Portfolios or your own Pension Fund.

Smart Cap Portfolio (New!)

Here’s introducing “Smartcaps” – Our crowd-sourced portfolio. Our Capital Mind Premium group on Slack indulges in top-notch, focused and brilliant conversation. There are so many ideas to build on, and so many trading and investing concepts and techniques we’ve learnt. In the magic, some of our subscribers suggested stocks that can be the great ones for tomorrow. Many are small-caps – so it’s very difficult to build into a position. Also there is very little institutional interest as the market cap of such companies is very low and promoter holding is heavy, so getting in with a chunk is difficult. But we’ve decided to build this into a portfolio named Smartcaps.
