EQUITY MARKETS - AN INTRODUCTION
Stocks of various companies are listed on stock exchanges. In India, BSE and NSE are the two large stock exchanges.
There are two ways in which returns can be earned by investing in stocks:
The first is through capital appreciation. The other way to make money through stocks is dividend. Being ordinary shareholders, you may or may not get dividends, hence, this bit of earning through stocks is also not fixed or assured returns.
Dividends can give a decent earning, more so because currently they are non-taxable in the hands of the Investors, since only companies have to pay tax on the dividend when they disburse.
You can acquire stocks of a company in two ways. You can buy shares when a company makes an initial public offering (IPO), that is, an offer to the general public to subscribe to its equity. In a primary issue, the company has the right to set the price for its shares. Once an issue is subscribed, the stocks are listed on the stock market. Now, it is left for the market to determine its value.
There is a secondary way of acquiring stocks. You can buy and sell stocks at the market-determined price. All stock exchanges are thus secondary markets. For getting stocks from the secondary market you need the services of a brokerage firm who acts as your agent whenever you want to buy or sell a stock.
The stocks are held in dematerialised (or demat) form. With demat shares you don’t have to worry about maintaining stacks of share certificate papers. These days many investors buy and sell stocks on the internet and the order that you place is handled entirely with computers. All you have to do is log on to the brokerage firm's site, open an investor's account, enter your order, wait for the trading to be done and within some time get a confirmation to your order.
All over the world, equity has traditionally yielded the maximum return on investment. The returns on equity investment are high, but so are the risks. This apparent contradiction is easily understood. As an investor in the equity of a company, you become an owner of that company to the extent of your investment. As an owner, or a part owner, you face the same risks and potential returns as the company does. So, if your company is earning profits, so will you. But if it starts bleeding losses, you will lose too.
DEBT MARKETS - AN INTRODUCTION
In a world where the returns on your investment are directly proportional to the inherent risks, it is but natural that the investor who opts for fixed income instruments is well into his chosen career. Basic family needs such as an own house and reasonable insurance cover would have been provided for, but the proximity to retirement would prompt the need to lower investment risks. Also returns from investments form the principal source of income and preservation of capital is paramount.
As is the basic rule in choosing any investment option, here too it is essential that the investor decides in advance the proportion of investing in stocks and bonds. Periodic evaluation is equally important and while necessary changes have to be made, investments must never be switched for negligible changes in interest rates.
In India there a number of avenues for such investors, with the most popular forms being:
- Fixed deposits with banks and post offices.
- Fixed deposits with companies.
- Public sector bonds including Tax-free bonds
- Non-convertible debentures of private sector.
- Various Debt schemes of Mutual Funds
- National Savings Certificates.
- Provident Fund contributions.
- Indira Vikas Patras.
