A negative week for the markets!

The week gone was one of the worst weeks for the stock market around the world and so the Indian market. BSE Sensex lost 4.5% and NSE Nifty lost 4.93% in the past week. Europe’s debt woes which adds to the fears of another crisis and UK election that resulted in a hung parliament added fuel to the decline in the market which is already perceived as over priced. The decline and gain in the index level shows the direction of the stock market, but it is not the concern of an investor. An investor is concerned about the companies in his portfolio – its business and its prospects!

While the index lost 4.5% in the week, my loss was 2.4%. Glenmark Pharma and Dabur India in my portfolio ended the week in positive.
