Rakesh Jhunjhunwala on FT.com

Famed Indian stock investor and trader Rakesh Jhunjhunwala recently sat down for an interview with FT.com's "View From the Markets" video series.

I'm sure many of our Indian and Asian readers are familiar with Jhunjhunwala's career, but for those outside the region who may not know him, check the Wikipedia link above for a brief introduction to the man currently tagged as the "Warren Buffett of India".

Those who are familiar with Rakesh's reputation as one of India's most prominent stock bulls (he has also played the short side with success) may be unsurprised to hear his view that the "mother of all bull markets" in Indian shares lies not too far ahead.

Click on the interview link to find out why he feels Indian shares will be an attractive opportunity in the years to come. You can also find out more about Jhunjhunwala's investing and trading background in the following related articles and links below.

I find it fascinating to learn more about traders and investors from other countries, and I hope you'll enjoy this information as well.

In the case of Rakesh, I am especially interested to find a sterling example of a value investor who has a knowledge of trading (he cites Victor Sperandeo's Methods of a Wall Street Master as an early source of knowledge) and an appreciation of the differences inherent in trading and investing.

Note to our readers: If you have articles to share on successful traders and investors who may fly under the radar, we are always interested to hear about them; email me or drop us a note in the comments section. Thanks!

With all the recent talk of a new bubble in the making, thanks in part to the Yellen Fed's continued easy money stance, I thought it'd be instructive to revisit our previous stock market bubble - in one quick chart.

So here's what a real stock market bubble looks like.

For those of you who are a little too young to recall it, this is a chart of InfoSpace at the height of the Nasdaq dot-com bubble in 1999-2001. This fallen angel soared to fantastic heights only to plummet back down to earth as the bubble, and InfoSpace's shady business plan, turned to rubble.

As detailed in our post, "Round trip stocks: Momentum booms and busts", InfoSpace rocketed from under $100 a share to over $1,300 a share in less than six months. 

In a pattern common to many parabolic shooting stars, the stock soon peaked and began a…

William O'Neil Interview: How to Buy Winning Stocks

Investor's Business Daily founder and veteran stock trader, William O'Neil shared his trading methods and insights on buying winning stocks in an in-depth IBD radio interview.

Here are some highlights from William O'Neil's interview withIBD:

William O'Neil's interest in the stock market began when he started working as a young adult. 

"I say many times that I didn't get that much out of college. I didn't have much interest in the stock market until I graduated from college. When I got married, I had to look out into the future and get more serious. The investment world had some appeal and that's when I started studying it. I became a stock broker after I got out of the Air Force."
He moved to Los Angeles and started work in a stock broker's office with twenty other guys. When their phone leads from ads didn't pan out, O'Neil would take the leads and drive down to visit the prospective customers in person.

"I'd get in the c…
