😯 Announcing TAP GAP Poser end 2013

🙄 Which Indian Company will be a Big Share Price Winner & Wealth Creator for Investors in 2014?

Have revived this TAP GAP Series on the request of Blog Reader Hemanth with this Poser that he requested for

Sensex & Nifty have returned under just 7% returns till date in 2013 with @ 10 trading days to go yet in the year

Yet in 2013 Thinly traded and on upper circuit for a long time, Scrip Selection like Westlife Dev ~ the McDonald Franchise in West & South India gave 1000% returns if you managed to get in early ~ and many in the IT & Pharma Space have given over 100% returns in 2013

Now Tell me which one you think can give great gains in 2014 and win attractive prizes if they are selected as Winners by me

Certain Guidelines to follow 

  1. Only an Individual over 18 can participate
  2. There is no Entry Fee ! ~ How could there be any !
  3. Respond with your Choice of Scrips (Preferably Just One but Not more than Three)
  4. Give a brief fundamental reason for each Selection ~ not more than a small paragraph for each 
  5. The Investment Price should be the Current Market Price
  6. Give a Target Price in 2014 for your Selection
  7. Any Selection based on Technical Analysis will not be considered   
  8. Respond by December 31,2013 Midnight IST  ~ may extend the deadline into January 2014 to get in more responses
  9. Please respond on this Blogpost and not on my email so all viewers can have access to your response
  10. Before December 31,2013,you can change your Selections any number of times you wish.Your Last Response carrying your Selections will be considered as Final on deadline expiration  with your earlier selections being ignored    
What is at Stake ! 😆 For the First Prize Winner
  1. A gauravblog Hamper with some lovely Goodies ~ regulars should know what’s in the hamper ~ or simply click on the TAP GAP  navigation heading in the Menu above to get a sense of past Posers and Responses and Winners and what they got in the Hamper ~May announce more than One Winner just to live the Joyous Christmas Spirit of Giving out more than One Hamper ! ~ only of course if I get many responses
  2. Free Annual Subscription to our Plan H worth Rs 5000 of our Scrip Sanctuaries ~ Web Protection Plans From The Wildlife In This Jungle Of Indian Equities ~ will give you access to our SCRIP SELECT Module on our website

🙂 Other Winners,if announced, will receive gauravblog hampers 

😀 All Winners will be Invited for A Super Dinner in Mumbai in January or February 2014 so we can meet and greet and eat and enjoy each others company in person and discuss where Indian Equities are heading and debate whether being a Genius and being Married are mutually exclusive ! ~Outstation Winners should perhaps consider it a value or growth investment to come into Mumbai for this Dinner ! 😎

Who Shall Decide the Winners?

Who Wins,will be decided solely by me ! unlike Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party  who has reached out for a referendum to the people of Delhi to decide if they should govern Delhi with outside support from Congress ! 😉

You may yet turn out to be a Winner even if not announced by me as one !

Oh ! and in all Fairness,if there is a Response of a Scrip that I have not chosen as a Winner and that Selection goes on to top the Gains in 2014 over and above the Selections I have chosen as Winners ! then at the end of 2014 this Responder too will be a Winner and get a gauravblog hamper from me ! 😳 ~ He or She may get the privilege to gloat “I told you so !” and I promise I shall apologise and be suitably embarassed ! ~ The rider here is that although there may be many such Responses that win over those I declare as Potential Winners in 2014 ,only one of such Response Winners,it being the Highest Gainer from such Responses,who will be entitled to the Hamper

So Go ahead and take a Wild Guess or an Educated one and Respond quickly with your Scrip Choices for 2014 by December 31,2013! 

All the Best ! Eagerly awaiting your Selections

Cheers !

Which is better for quality of Married Life ? To be Right or To Be Happy !? ~ and why Attractive Students get Better Grades !

Which is better for quality of Married Life ? To be Right or To Be Happy !? ~ and why Attractive Students get Better Grades !

This early Thursday morning came across two very interesting studies !

The First is how attractive students get higher grades and  Beautiful People are Paid More,are Desired by More and have higher Self-Esteem

😆 Now don’t blame  us Guys when we are attracted to Katrina or Kareena or…….


The Second deals with Married Life ~ For a Couple to lead a healthy married Life what is better ~to be Right or to be Happy !?

This is an Interesting study of a Married Couple by the University of Auckland and published in the British Medical Journal

The authors decided that the Wife was preferred to be Right and not told about the exercise while the Husband was clued in and preferred to be Happy and was told to agree with whatever Wife said without dissent or  complaint even if he believed she was wrong

The Quality of their Life was marked from 1 to 10 with 10 being the Best….Initially the Wife was marked at 8 and the Husband at 7….the study had to be halted on just Day 12 as the Wife became increasingly critical of the Husband who was agreeing to all what she said….the Husband’s score went down rapidly from 7 to 3 by Day 12 while on Day 6 itself the Wife’s score went up marginally to 8.5

🙄 The conclusion drawn ,though more research is required,is that being Right is the cause of  Happiness while agreeing with what one disagrees with is the cause of Unhappiness ! 

It is harmful for a relationship where one agrees with the other all the time !

😛 So can Henpecked Husbands be ever Happy !

For the record I am not Henpecked ! ~ My Wife told me to say this !
