  1. Ridiculous statement by some misinformed soul regarding Suresh. He has been doing an immense job through this blog (a majority of these ‘me too’ blogs have opened & closed long ago), whereas Suresh has been maintaining this with an extreme sense of dignity – his recos on investments are conservative and of course, all investments come with risk

  2. I think Mr Mathur has some grievance with Indiabulls which reflected on his comments with you. If he is so sure that this Company is a bubble gum, then he should explain it with facts and figures.

    I have been following your articles for quite some time and I have no hesitation to say that you are a strict Master (school teacher) who never give more than 50 marks to students – even if they are eligible for 100!! You are one of the least financial experts who after explaining everything in an article recommend “don’t subscrbe”. So don’t get emotional – keep on your good work.

  3. Mr. Suresh KP, Don’t worry about just 1 negative comment. All your articles are well researched. you not only provide positives, but highlight each and every small risk items too. I still read your last sentence in risk factors “investors should read all risk factors indicated in prospectus”. Earlier I used to wonder why you are providing so many risk items, but later realised your true intention when nbfc co’s are defaulting and delaying payments. You are a true advisor for all us. Keep up the good work.

    1. Yes, I agree. The negative comments by your one reader without any substantive and material data point is in itself a negative mindset, may be having some grudge somewhere with someone else.
      So please keep the good work.

  4. This is the worst possible post for retail investors who trust you and read your posts. are you getting commission from these companies ?
    This is a company that is about to go bankrupt soon.

    1. Mathur,

      Did you read the article or just commenting something on your own. We post both positive points and negative points and with a conclusion.

      These are AA rated + Secured NCDs, hence relatively safer to invest. We always re-iterated earlier that investors should invest in AA rated bonds. Yes, the ratings can change and this is indicated as FIRST RISK factor in the post as well as on video. Do not comment without reading the complete article. Please do not try to demotivate bloggers like us who keep educating for each and every new financial products that are coming into market.

      1. Sir, in your earlier response you have said:

        “We always re-iterated earlier that investors should invest in AA rated bonds.”

        I think you meant *AAA* rated bonds. I know you have always recommended investing in AAA bonds for maximum safety when it comes to debt investments.

        I follow your blog daily and have found your articles and inputs very valuable. Thank you so much for this service to humanity.

        1. Hello Andy, Yes I keep indicating AAA / AA and A rated bonds in various articles that investors can invest. The reason is that AAA rated can go down to AA and similarly AA rated can go down to A rating. Even A rating bonds can down to BBB. However, BBB rated bonds can further fall, the risk is v. higher. I am re-iterating again and again earlier and now. NCDs are always high risk, the credit ratings would help investors to know the quantum of risk.

    2. I think a very inappropriate, wrong and derogatory remarks about the blog writer, Mr. Suresh KP.
      To my understanding, he has been extremely transparent, candid and offers a good analysis.
      Secondly, no explaination has been offered on what makes this company a soon to be bankrupt company. It is of course not acceptable to make such comments/allegation without any substantive and meaningful evidence for the same.

    3. Looks this gentlemen has seen the first 30 seconds of video and made the judgement and critized mr. suresh. U should read the pros and cons briefed in the article and video dude. Do you do same way for your investments, than you are making blunders.
