One-Stop Shop For Investment Information

Congratulations to DSIJ for completing 25 years of existence! I am pleased to say that I have been a fellow-traveller with DSIJ, albeit only for past six years, but the trip has really been worthwhile.

I am a regular reader of DSIJ, and would like to thank your team for all the efforts it puts to help us investors. I have very high respect and regard for the DSIJ research team! The first thing I read is ‘From the Editor‘, which sets the tone for the entire issue. I really like the conversational tone, as well as the nuggets of information within.

’Analysis‘, ‘Spotlight’ and ‘Cover Story’ are the sections that I seek out next. These articles are well-researched and exhaustive. They not only provide good scrip information/recommendations, but are also good teaching-aids for newbies about all the factors to consider when investing.

I do have a complaint with DSIJ though - under its various sections like ‘Low-Priced Scrips’, ‘Choice Scrips’, ‘Reviews’, ‘Hot Chips’, ‘Informed Intelligence’, and furthermore, with offerings like ’Pop-Stocks’, ‘Pop Futures’, ‘POP-BTST’, ‘Flash News’ there is simply information overload and too many options to choose from! While I understand that each service/offering is tailored for different kinds of investors, at end of day as an investor (irrespective of the style) I still would like to buy stocks and make profits – as simple as that.

Here is where comes the highlight of DSIJ (for me at least) – ‘DataBank’. It provides me with valuable information like Book Value, 52-Week High/Low, DE Ratio, EPS, CMP, RONW etc. in one row for each scrip. It becomes that much easier for me to crunch the numbers to arrive at my own investment decisions (like calculating Graham's Magic Number, CMP/BV, DE). All this helps me estimate the fair value of a given company share that I am willing to pay. This service is priceless. So, carry on the good work.

Having praised ‘DataBank’ I think it can still be improved. For example, I would love to have more information/columns providing data like the 200-Day Moving Average, PEG Ratio, Last 1 Year’s Return etc. Well, wishing is free, right?

DSIJ indeed has been ‘Helping Me Book Profits’. Don't lose that zeal. More power to you!

Are Gifts/Donations To Relatives Taxable?

I am a regular reader of DSIJ for the last two years. I would like to thank you for the useful advice provided from time to time on topics related with taxation, mutual funds, stocks, etc.
 
I have a question related to gifts/donation and the corresponding tax liability. Is there any arrangement whereby I can donate/gift some amount to my wife? Would she be liable to pay income tax on the income earned from that donated/gifted amount?
