Hi everyone... Just wanted to revive this thread because I had the same question and there weren't enough answers on this:

Which is the best financial magazine in India?

I am sure there will not be one answer to this question. I am just looking to subscribing to one for informative articles, learning basics as well as getting advanced knowledge on different topics.

Thanks!

So far, I have always used moneycontrol.com. I like the quality and variety of financial news they offer. Most of the time, I find what I am looking for. They even have developed a special tab dedicated to the financial crisis which provides useful advice, opinions and information.
But if someone is using another website please share it with us.

I read Hindu Businessline, Business Standard, economic times, Icici reports, Indiabulls reports

But I stopped using recommendations! Just read them for information purpose!

I do my own research! Or follow Alchemist!

ICFAI's publications are exceptionally good.

If someone is serious about finance, he shouldn't miss these:

http://www.iupindia.org/magazines.asp

"The Analyst" is the one that I find most interesting.

For personal finance, I have been reading Outlook Money for sometime and find it good enough to continue reading. I don't read too much into the buy/sell recommendations, though.

Hi Alchemist,

Do you still read "The Analyst"? Is it still worth subscribing. How does it compare to Outlook Money, The Economist and the likes?

"The Analyst" is for those who are serious about financial analysis.

It's not for the common investor and it doesn't cover any stocks. The focus is not the stock markets, but the entire financial world.

If you are looking for stock picks and tips to manage your money, "The Analyst" is not for you.

However, this doesn't mean that it is difficult to understand. The content is very well written and of exceptional quality.

Hmm... but if I am looking at trying to learn how things work in the financial world, then does it make sense to purchase it? If the intention is to build knowledge with a long term view?

Also, does it need prior financial background? I have never studied any financial subjects since I am from the IT background.

Yes, it would be beneficial.

You may face difficultly understanding some articles, but most of the articles are written in simple language and someone who has basic knowledge of finance should be able to understand them.

I had stopped subscribing it some time back. I am thinking of renewing my subscription again.

I bought an issue of "Dalal Street" dated 3rd Jan, 2010.

I'm quite surprised to see that its database is incomplete!

Some stocks that I own, follow, or am curious about do not figure!

For what it's worth, they are depending on Religare Technova Global Solutions now. Sometime ago, they got data from Asian CERC Information Technology.

Vasa... I haven't read Dalal Street, but you can check out Capital Market. My dad has been using it for many years (more than 20 I guess) and he is very satisfied with it. I have also recently applied for its subscription but haven't received the first copy yet, so cannot comment on it first hand.

PS. Capital market (Rs. 50) is also cheaper than Dalal Street (Rs. 65)

I think Capital Markets also have their own database which is used quite widely by brokers.

Does anyone keep track of when new issues of various magazines come online?

It would be nice to know when MoneyLife, Outlook Money, Outlook Profit, Business World, and other mags. are "refreshed". (Just like everyone looks forward to VP's Technicals on ICICI Direct every Monday )

There were many magazines in the past which have fizzled out, (Financial Wizard, Profit, Money Opportunities etc, all speculative in nature) Capital Market and Dalal Street have somehow managed to survive, The data base in Capital Market is good and updated, Dalal Street, I don't like.

Never go by tips of these magazines, Financial Wizard, I know would charge 20000 bucks those days to recommend the share you are stuck in, for a 5000 bucks more, you could have that posted as the headline, mentioning it as the biggest blockbuster of the week, the shares would spike up for two to three days, to come back to the same old levels next week, if not lower.

Default Any substitute to the Analyst??

I m an MBA student and very much interested in magazines about financial analysis. I was a big fan of the Analyst magazine, but they stopped publishing about an year back. I found Capital Market a good substitute to the Analyst, I have also read Dalal Street but I don't think I like it that much.

Are there any such magazines about financial analysis which can help finance students, similar to the Analyst and Capital Market?
