No regrets! Regretting choices that you made or could have made is recipe for making bad choices in the future. Everything happens for a reason. There is a reason that God does not allow us to travel through time.

I'm a teacher first and foremost. To me, that's the way I would characterize myself.

If you're valuing Coca-Cola as a company, who cares what the beverage business looks like? It's a company with a long history with an established way of doing business that's worked. If you're valuing a company like Uber, which is in a business which is evolving, you might need to understand the business first before you value the company.

I know I teach because it's the way I feel that ... It's my passion.

First thing investors have to be asking is whether or not they should be doing a valuation in the first place.

Aswath Damodaran (Professor)

Your objective is to collect tax revenues and not to tweak the system because when you try to do that, it never works the way you intend to

Valuation requires two things: A willingness to learn the basic tools. Many investors want to do valuation but the don't want to learn about accounting / present value / etc. If you don't have time to learn, put your money in an index fund. Ninety percent of the world would be far better off. Doing it for the right reason. Most people do it for the wrong reason: they want to get rich.

The first thing we have to recognise is central banks are more followers than leaders. They do not set trends. They follow rates down. 

Aswath Damodaran (Professor)

The first thing to remember is that to have negative interest rates, you got to have a really bad economy. Good economies do not have negative interest rates.

If you give tax benefits to corporates with higher exports, then you are tweaking the system. If you do this, there will be chaos and the tax revenue is never going to turn out the way you intended five years down the line.

There is an increasing disconnect between stock markets returns and economic performance. This is a global phenomenon, not just in India.

Aswath Damodaran (Professor)

There was a time when you said tech, [and] you really meant high growth, high risk, high P/E. I don't think that's true anymore

If the Indian economy is so fragile that one demonetisation could shake it up, then it didn't deserve to be strong in the first place and I don't believe India is that fragile.

Aswath Damodaran (Professor)

I have very little faith in economists who tell me that demonetisation will reduce growth. They've never been right in the last decade.

Aswath Damodaran (Professor)

The part I agree with is that we should all be more diversified. But the part that I don't get is, how is diversification going to protect you if there's a market crash?
