Stock pics..

Economies of almost all countries are slowing due to global financial crisis. Per recent "official endorsement" , US economy is in recession (GDP shrinking instead of growing) starting December 2007. Finally ! its official. There are already several theories (as always) about depth and length of the ongoing economic recession. Many people already hate the term "Wall street". Numerous conservative radio talk hosts across the country have started arguing demerits of Capitalism. While no question things are bad..are they really that worse ? Is the world coming to an end ? Well, may be not. Or may be not "so soon" ! (considering Al Gore's Global warming prediction of increased CO2 levels causing global demise)....BTW, I admire Al Gore for his efforts in bringing worldwide awareness about Global warming.
While I too suffered setbacks from recent market meltdown (Of course, everyone gets impacted directly or indirectly).. I would think there are real good investing opportunities out there in equity markets considering last several months of "over selling". Remember, humans always "over react" ! That's why pundits think there exist wild swings of booms and busts. I don't claim to be anywhere close to market experts.. But, I thought I would share few companies I thought have little longer term future and their current stock prices are well worth ownership for potential gains. Below are 10 decent picks along with their recent values.
Again, the disclaimer is : Do your own research and pick your winning horses (if any)...
Good Luck ! :-)

విశ్వశాంతి వర్ధిల్లాలి..

మిత్రులారా, మానవత్వం మరచి ముష్కరులు సాగించిన ముంబై మారణకాండ ని
ముక్త కంఠంతో ఖండిద్దాం..
గుండె ధైర్యం దండిగా ..చావు ని సైతం లెక్క చెయ్యక .. వెన్ను చూపని పోరాటంతో ..

ఆగంతకుల ఆట కట్టిన .. సాహస వీరులకిదే ..శత కొటి జోహార్లు.. సహస్ర కోటి వందనాలు..

సర్వేజనా సుఖినోభవంతు ...

Sarvejana Sukhinobhavantu.....In the wake of Mumbai attacks...

Global citizens across the world are shocked with the cruel acts of terrorists in Mumbai last week.

I would like to kick start my blogging by paying tributes and deep condolences to one and all effected by this unacceptable and intolerable acts of the bunch of brain-washed (animals !).
My heart goes to all the brave men and women who fought with those mad perpetrators to save thousands of lives by sacrificing their own lives.

There is NO (simply NO) place for such acts of taking innocent lives.
Even if anyone gives Zillion reasons... there is NO place for such acts in humanity.
Let peace and harmony be prevailed on this wonderful God creation called Earth.

As we quote from ancient Sanskrit Vedas..
SARVEJANA SUKHINOBHAVANTU (Let all humans live in peace and prosperity).
