    (b) Consistent good performance in all types of market conditions
    (c) 19 years experience in stock market with very good knowledge
    (d) SEBI registered research analyst

    Cons : (a) one dud stock for every 20 good recommendations

    Silver Standard :

    Equity Master

    Pros : (a) Focus on valuations
    (b) 20 years experience in stock market with very good knowledge

    Cons : (a) Mixed performance. Most stocks do average
    (b) Too many subscribers. Unable to get stock when recommended
    (c) Recommends stocks when they are not even in the recommended range
    (d) After you subscribe, they will start another set of service to get more money

    Bronze Standard :

    Stock Axis

    Pros : (a) Some stocks have really done well

    Cons : (a) Overall performance just average
    (b) Not registered with SEBI yet
    (c) Displays on website only stocks with good performance and hides bad ones
    (d) Recently some recommendations in losses
    (e) Very expensive compared to returns
    (f) Recently started to copy from others

    Sandip Sabharwal

    Pros : (a) Wide experience in the stock market
    (b) SEBI registered research analyst

    Cons : (a) Past performance in running mutual funds just average

    HBJ, I have had a personal experience with. They tried hard to make me pay up money immediately in my meeting with them while saying that the returns would be as per their promise. They kept urging me to enrol even as I asked them to give time which I genuinely needed to arrange finances.

    This urgency and force in making me enrol did not make me feel comfortable. So I chose to read reviews on the net and talk to people already into stocks. Did not get good feedback and I gave up the idea of going ahead with them.


    But why **********? Seems like they have a pretty transparent trial system as well for which I have enrolled. Seems genuine. The trial gives you access to all recommendations till date and you can see the returns on each of their recommendation. As far as I know, not many give such an option. Also, they do not promise the sky.

    **** is registered as paid member in all stock advisories in different names and copies some of their practices and stocks. **** registered at a competitor recently and was double checking his own recommendations by inquiring with them and copying some of theirs. Was caught that lead to a confession from him. You can read all about it by going to section devoted to this advisory.

    Anyway, Please discuss about Equity Master for which this thread has been started. For others there are separate threads.

    Oh, that's a little disappointing because of what I have already mentioned above, seemed transparent and had a good past performance.

    About equitymaster, what did you mean by "Unable to get stock when recommended".

    Equity master recommends even if the price is not at that level. If stock price is 250 they will recommend at 250 and say that when it comes to 200 only then you can buy. Whats this?

    Ok, so they expect a correction and that never happens.

    It does make a difference to the buyer if the holding period is intended to be short. If its for an year or more when the idea is to make 100% or more, the impact is lesser.

    Edited by Moderator To remove names of stocks. Please do not post names of stocks recommended by paid stock advisory services as it is unethical and contrary to the terms and conditions of the service


    I just registered for Equitymasters hidden secret...It's unbelievable but true there recent recommendations like .......... all are recommended much earlier by **********..!! Is it the experience of 20 years as equitymaster mention??? If one say ********** as copy-paste then what to say to Equitymaster???

    Other recent recommendation of Equitymaster like ....... is down by 60% in 2 months..!! Oh my God..!! Another one ...... is very well-known..@Kumar, your comparison is totally wrong..Is it the prove of 20 years experience with good knowledge of Equitymaster??

    Equitymaster is there since 1996, but the analysts working there might have little experience and knowledge..There analysts are not surely associated from the beginning...

    ********** is much better and transparent, at least they offer 4 months trial to judge their service..

    The only solution to these things is to register at the original source i.e. prudentequity.com from where this recommendation chain is starting. Why buy at 70-80% higher by paying others when you can get them cheaper? I did the right thing by subscribing to Prudentequity.

    That's correct Shrikant. Initially all these stocks recommended at very cheap prices at Prudent Equity. By the way, we are diverting by discussing others at Equity Master thread. Please guys don't put other services comments here. Post them in respective threads.

    I am getting too many emails from equitymaster to join various other services....As mentioned above experience with Equitymaster Hidden Treasure is bad..It seems although equitymaster is very old company, but their analysts have little experience..

    Anyone experience any other offering from equitymaster?

    I have recently joined their premium service - Alpha trader which is their currency and commodity derivatives trading service by Asad Dossani on weekly basis. It is a very premium service which is open once in a year and they take very limited members. Costs 100,000/- a year. Will keep you guys posted on the performance on a monthly basis.

    In various post the intention of Mr Kumar is humiliating one of the finest stock advisory services.This is evident that he either faces huge losses from this stock advisory services(which is impossible in reality) or he is the loved one of another particular stock advisory services for whome he always shouts.
