GOLD, SILVER OUTSHINE STOCKS

GIVE 28% MORE RETURNS TO INVESTORS

Gold and silver have given better returns to investors so far this year by surging up to 28 per cent, compared to stocks which showed gains of under 8 per cent.
Gold and silver prices have surged by 19.77 per cent and 28.37 per cent up to October 10 this year.
On the other hand, the 30-share barometer Sensex rose by just 7.52 per cent during this period. The index touched its 52-week high of 29,077.28 on September 8, 2016.
However, from its all-time high of 30,024.74, attained on March 4, 2015, the index is down 1,942.4 points or 6.46 per cent.
Gold prices rose to Rs 30,410 per 10 grams from Rs 25,390 on December 31, 2015, while silver to Rs 42,750 per kg from Rs 33,300 per kg.
Earlier in the year, sentiment in the market was hit mostly by volatility in crude oil prices and worries over the health of the Chinese economy.
However, the post-Budget rally in the stock market in March helped cushion some of the losses.
On monthly basis, the 30-share index has gained since March onwards sans September.
As per market experts, gold outperformed other asset classes during weak markets as investors are driven by the safe haven syndrome. Data shows that gold has given positive returns in 12 out of the last 15 years.
In a double-whammy for investors, however, the two major asset classes - stocks and gold - had failed to generate positive returns last year.
In 2014, the stock markets had outperformed gold and silver for the third year in a row with much better returns for investors.

DHIRUBHAI ENJOYED IN WEALTH CREATION

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977. A person who had put in Rs 1,000 then in the IPO is worth over a million today, going by the price of RIL. Stating that the launch of Kothari Pioneer Mutual Fund, which was country's first private MF in 1993, was his (Dhirubhai's) id…

BEAR GRIP ON INDIAN STOCK MARKET

RECORDS 1 WEEKLY FALL IN 6 WEEKS
Gripped by fear psychosis due to geo-political aftershocks, key stock market indices were on a sticky wicket for the fifth day today as both Sensex and Nifty fell over 1 per cent to hit their one-month lows. The sharp plunge left investors poorer by over Rs 95,000 crore as the market cap stood at Rs 1,27,08,846 crore. Risk appetite took a hit after the Economic Survey said achieving the high end of the 6.75-7.5 per cent growth projected previously will be difficult. This is markets' first weekly fall in six.
Weakness in the rupee against the American currency and lacklustre global shares dragged down the indices, too. The BSE 30-share Sensex remained in the negative zone and settled down 317.74 points, or 1.01 per cent, at 31,213.59, its weakest closing since July 4. The index had tumbled 794.08 points in the last four sessions. The NSE Nifty after cracking the 9,700-mark to hit a low of 9,685.55, finally settled lower 109.45 points, or 1.11 per cent…
