Presidential Elections: Support Dr.Meira Kumar

Bihar and Jharkhand governments have no choice but to support Dr.Meira Kumar. As defeat of "Bihar ki Beti" will invariably bring Shame to the Biharis and Jharkhandis (or erstwhile unified Bihar). Do you think that, people of Bihar will leave Nitish Kumar Scott - free, if Dr.Meira Kumar loses ? So, Nitish Kumar has very little option left but to support, Dr.Meira Kumar.

Moreover, if Nitish Kumar wants to fall in the BJP's well calculated electoral TRAP no one can save him in the next election.

Also, I am surprised to see Mr.Navin Pattanayak, so easily chewing the RSS bait. Orissa is a state, where there is large chunk of Tribal Christian voters loyal to the BJD (Biju Janata Dal). I am still to fathom, BJD's sudden electoral gamble of siding with the RSS and the BJP; when Mr.Pattanayak has been maintaining distance from them since some time.

Besides, the election of Dr.Meira Kumar, who is educated, experienced and very sober, might also correct some of the historical mistakes of not making her father, the Prime Minister of India.

Also, I don't think all the Muslim and Christian MPs and MLAs from the TDP and TRS will ever support a RSS backed Candidate, who acted against Dalit Christian and Muslin reservations. Therefore, invariably cross voting will take place, which might give the underdog, Ms.Kumar, a win. Support Dr.Meira Kumar, give a conscience vote and make her the 2nd Female President of India.

All the best to Dr.Meira Kumar.....👍✌

Many investors/traders, invest on the basis of insider trading, as promoters mostly buy on the hope that the company will do well in future. on the other hand the Retail (small) investors are often advised to be wary of insider selling, as this might indicate the company is not in good financial health. After all, who knows the company better than its own promoter? As stock markets were volatile in Jan-Feb 2016, many promoters bought the shares of their companies. 

Some companies that saw huge insider buying were Adani Power, Aditya Birla Nuvo, Bharti Airtel, Grasim, Kansai Nerolac, KPIT Technologies, Lanco Infratech, MRF and Welspun. 

Insider selling was seen at Infrasoft Technologies, Jaiprakash Associates, Max Financial Services, Pipavav Defence and Offshore Engineering, Unitech and Wockhardt.

However, according to some experts, combined with the insider buying data, one should look at management, price/earning ratio, etc, before investing in a stock.

Moreover, sometimes, insider buying and selling could be merely a vesting of options because the vesting period has come to an end. Sometimes, promoters buy only to reduce their cash balance or increase the free-float earnings per share.

According to Prime Database, announcements have been made for buying back shares worth Rs.2,220 crore in 2016 so far. In FY15, the total value of shares bought back was Rs.650 crore.

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) amended the buyback rules in 2013 specifying that the minimum amount that a company is required to buy back should be 50% of the offer size, against the earlier practice of 25%. SEBI also limited the buyback period to six months, from the time the approval has been sought from the board or shareholders, because it found that companies typically did not utiilise the entire period of one year to complete the buy back.

Earlier this year, Just Dial, Borosil Glass, Himalaya Granites, Technocraft Industries, Tips Industries successfully completed buying back shares worth `550 crore from investors. While companies like Dr. Reddy’s, OnMobile Global, Excel Industries and ECE Industries currently have their buyback offers ongoing.

A six month old report showed that some companies, including Eveready Industries, Force Motors and Welspun India, have seen their share price increase multifold one-year after an increase in promoter holdings. 

Similarly, others such as Adani Ports, ABG Shipyard and Cox & Kings have seen an erosion in their stock prices after a dip in their promoter holdings.
