Good investing reading – 15 February 2013

This article is slightly old, from 2011, but always a good read if you want to get a grip on the Mahindra & Mahindra group.

Conference calls are held by management of a company usually when the earnings are announced every quarter. They are interesting to listen to or to be read in transcript form, because the management talks about the business in the quarter gone by. They talk of the market, whether it is good or bad, challenges they are facing, expansion plans and many other pertinent facts.

This article is interesting because it talks of research done that showed that the more the number of positive words management used in the call, the greater was their chance of selling stock in the coming days. Exactly counter-intuitive.

I don’t know whether this is true also in India. It will be interesting to find out.
