Smart Reads of the Week: It’s Time to Ask Questions!

Times flies, and yet another year has passed.

Annual general meeting (AGM) season is upon us again, with a raft of companies with December fiscal-year ends holding theirs in the middle to later part of this month.

That means that you, dear investor, will have the chance to ask the management of the companies that you own some key questions.

If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry!

We have written an article on how you can ask great questions at these AGMs.

As a shareholder, you own a stake in the business.

It’s a great time for you to take stock of your investments and ask management to clarify on matters which are unclear or require more details.

As investors, our advantage is in accumulating knowledge over long periods of time.

By doing so, we make ourselves smarter about the businesses which we are taking a stake in, and hence, wiser in the decisions we take as an investor.

So, ask away!

Here is a list of our top articles for this week.
