  1. Though it is a good fund to invest, infra stocks have gone up 100/200 %

    A good review of the Fund.

  3. I just ask myself if metals and minerals are a part of infrastructure?!?

  4. That's what the Reliance MF's brochure says. You would be surprised , they have included banking as well, probably they are the lenders to the infra companies. They want to sell the product somehow !

    There is a probability of NAV going down to 30 to 40 % in the initial stages. Better to grab the units at that time as in the long run this fund is sure to perform.

  6. one of the worst fund, the buying rate was 10.25 when sensex was 14000 and now 8.92 even though the sensex is around 18000.

    I don't know how they are manipulating

  7. The infra stocks have taken quite a beating. We had recommended a wait and buy approach, in the review above.
    Also it is better go for a diversified equity fund than a sectoral fund.
