In today's world, investment has carved out an important place in the list of our basic needs. All of us look for an investment option which can yield high returns. Time and again compared to other available investment options, equity has always outperformed all the other asset classes in India, with the returns from NIFTY & SENSEX over the last many years being more than 18% (CAGR-Compounded Annual Growth Rate).
An equity investment generally refers to acquisition and holding of equity stock by individuals and firms in anticipation of income from Dividend and appreciation in the value of the stock. It may also refer to the acquisition of equity (ownership) participation in a private (unlisted) company or a startup company with the longterm objective of capital appreciation /gain.
Capital gains are the profits you earn while selling the stock after appreciation in its value. For example, if you buy a share at Rs. 250 and sell it at Rs. 1000, the capital gain will be of Rs. 750. Also, any benefit gained by an investor by way of long term capital gains (investment held in security / stock for a period of more than 1 year) is exempt from tax on sale. Dividends are cash payments that you receive from the company at regular intervals, usually annually or quarterly. A good number of listed companies pay dividends regularly.
An equity derivative is a class of derivatives whose value is at least partly derived from one or more underlying equity securities. Options and futures are by far the most common equity derivatives. However, there are many other types of equity derivatives that are actively traded. Derivatives are vital for the financial system. They help to hedge against the risks and also provide an opportunity to profit from the anomalies in the market.
Various derivative contracts constitute a significant share of all the capital market transactions in the domestic as well as global markets. In India, derivative contracts are traded on National Stock Exchange (NSE) on a huge scale and their trade is becoming increasingly prevalent even on Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
