This week in Laughing Stock, we look at the management reasons, dividends, day trading and the self-proclaimed investment gurus
Ah, the results season - it's like the IPL for investors, except instead of MS Dhoni, we have balance sheets and cash flows. And let's not forget the annual results that make it feel like we're waiting for the season finale of our favourite show.
But you know what else comes with the results season? The unsolicited gyaan from the self-proclaimed investment gurus on social media. They'll be bragging about their portfolio gains like they just discovered the secret to the universe, while you're left feeling like your investments are at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.
Don't worry though, you don't need Twitter to tell you how to invest your money. Just take a deep breath, do your own research, and make informed decisions. And if all else fails, there's always memes to make us laugh through the chaos.
When all management are excited about the demand scenario, IT is scared because The US is at the verge of a recession.
Our brain often wants to take the easy route but never forget to do the due diligence required when investing in any company.
This always puts a smile on our faces, especially if it's from a high dividend paying company.
Too many people have suffered after burning their hands in day trading. Let us learn from their mistakes and simply don't do it? Is this so complicated to understand?

Honestly, where are the crypto bros now? We did not like crypto but we never had bad intentions for the bros. Hope they are doing well and have not lost all their life savings.
There's always one macro headwind that is tossed around by management whenever they do not have good results. Poor revenue? Inflation. Poor margins? Inflation. Product has quality issues? Well, guess what? Inflation.
Remember guys, even a great company at a poor valuation will be a bad investment. Don't chase the winners who are trading at 100 P/E (looking at you Pidilite) but give sufficient space for valuations too.
