This is a new book in the market for all those who like fundamentals

It gives ratio analysis, shareholding pattern, last three year prfotiability, dividend history for the last five years etc- only relevant no irrelevant. Good for beginners and non-fianance people since they don't have to go after profit and loss accounts and balancesheets which though well presented on sites like indiainfoline.com and moneycontrol.com are time consuming as one has to hop from the balance sheet to the PNL to the ratio screen. It may be good for the website for they have to get the eyeballs but quite tiring for the user's eyeballs.

The only disquieting feature is that they have not specified whether its a one rupee share or one hundred rupees which can prove deceptive from dividend receipts point of view. EPS is given but P/E ratio is not.

For a quick reference of fundamentals of all the top companies, this is an excellent book.

Now only if someone could produce such a book on Technicals. That is not possible as technicals keep fluctuating. I think if someone displays the charts of the top companies on their website with analysis if should be a hit. It would be a good reading exercise for the learners/beginners. All the more reason for such an exercise is the fact that being in a smaller time frame, trading is at least three times tougher than investing
