Staying ahead of the curve is what separates the smart investor from the herd.
The indices are near their all time high. The budget is behind us. The customary euphoria and disappointment played out before the market returned to business. Buying seems the principal focus of investors. Years of avoiding equity has only increased investor anxiety to buy every dip. What one buys in times like these matters. Investors seem more than willing to buy the high risk parts of the market like small caps. On the contrary, large caps seem to be out of favour. Investors willingly allow greed to drive decision making and the aggressive investing seen in small caps duly reflects the lack of prudence among investors. Prudent investors should devise strategies that give ample scope to minimize volatility and to buy at lower valuations.
