Bandhu's Blockbusters

| Updated on September 17, 2018 Published on September 16, 2018

On April 1, four years back, piqued by the incessant jokes in the village at his expense, Bandu Barve decided he’d had enough. It was time for him to turn ‘smart’. His dead granny's voice rang in his ears — “Read the papers, Bandya, they tell

you all.” So, off went Bandu to the stash of newspapers onhis father’s desk. As luck would have it, the first paper Bandu got his hands on was The HinduBusinessLine.

The stock recos, inparticular, had him in thrall. Soon Bandu metamorphosed into an ace investor and trader.

These days, Bandu picks five stocks each Sunday, which he believes will be blockbusters over the next week.
