Important! Please give the disclaimer statement a thorough read. Understand what we are here for, what we aren’t responsible for, and what we are.

What Is ValuePickr.com?

ValuePickr.com was founded in 2009 by a few of us passionate ValuePickrs. Our name and guiding principles are derived from the old proverb “Separating the Wheat from the Chaff”. There is such an information (and mis-information) overload in our financial markets, that it’s imperative that we separate the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. We passionately believe it’s possible to do that, and ValuePickr will always be dedicated to that mission.

Separating the Wheat from the Chaff!

Yes, that’s what ValuePickr stands for. The stark truth is that the financial world preys on ignorance and fear. But now, dear reader, you’ve set your feet on ValuePickr soil and your days of confusion, fear and intimidation are over. We exist to serve you, to share and learn with you, and to grow all along the way. ValuePickr.com is a highly collaborative place, and together we will make sense of and discriminate between what is excellent, and what is probably not worth a second glance! We do have a few rules of the road. What follows is a disclaimer that the lawyers made us write, but one that’s aimed to protect you as much as it does our humble enterprise.

ValuePickr.com Disclaimer: Watching Out For Your Money

ValuePickr.com is designed to help readers obtain financial information and discuss ways to make investment and personal financial decisions. This information is sometimes provided by our staff and sometimes by other contributors, many of whom use anonymous screen names and are people we’ve never met.

We recognize that while we may have tons of great stuff on this platform, people sometimes post messages in our folders or make statements that are misleading, deceptive, or downright wrong. They may do this unintentionally or, sad to say, intentionally. The Securities and Exchange Board of India and Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India recognizes this and maintain useful websites at http://www.sebi.gov.in/ and http://www.watchoutinvestors.com/ respectively.

Treat the contributors here the same way you’d treat anyone you’d met for the first time at a party. This is important because anyone can show up to our party: no invitations are required. You shouldn’t make an investment just because some stranger (or even a friend) talks it up; you shouldn’t treat cyberspace any differently.

The fundamental concept is that you should NOT rely upon the information or opinions you read. Rather, you should use what you read here as starting points for doing independent research on companies and investing techniques. Then judge for yourself the merits of the material that has been shared in our site.

ValuePickr.com does not guarantee the veracity, reliability or completeness of any information provided in our site or in any hyperlink appearing on our site. No one could read through the many messages we receive each day, check out all the hyperlinked web sites, and research each one for accuracy. That isn’t why we’re here. Nor are we here to give you hot “tips,” to make “buy” or “sell” recommendations, or to tell you what to do with your money. We’re here to help you to learn how to make investment and personal finance decisions for yourself, and to grow along the way.

You are responsible for your own investment decisions. ValuePickr.com will not be responsible for any errors or omissions in articles or postings, for screener reports, for hyperlinks embedded in messages, or for any results obtained from the use of such information. ValuePickr.com will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a reader’s reliance on information obtained in our area, or in a hyperlinked area. If you don’t accept this responsibility for yourself, then you should not use ValuePickr.com.

If you ignore our advice to do independent research of industries, companies, and stocks, choosing instead to trade solely on information, “tips,” or opinions found in our site, you have made a conscious, willing, free, and personal decision to do so. You have also probably made a mistake.

As cyberspace developed, the freedom and openness from which we all profit is making us the target of touts, hypesters, and frauds too. These people could infect our investing platform, just as they infect other parts of the world. Please proceed with caution and do your homework. And remember: when you access one of these hyperlinked web sites, you’re leaving our area so be wary of those who post hyperlinks to strange web sites.

Data and Analysis

In the material and data that we make available in our investing platform, we rely on a wide variety of sources. We believe these sources of data to be accurate and reliable, but sometimes they may not be. ValuePickr.com makes no claims or representations as to the accuracy, completeness, or truth of any material contained in our areas. Nor is ValuePickr.com liable for any errors or delays in the content or transmission of the data on our site. We promise not to lie to you, but we reserve the right to be wrong, or even stupid.

Terms of Service Violations

If you have been harassed in any manner that you feel is a violation of our Terms of Service it is your obligation to notify us of the offending matter/post(s). Please contact ValuePickr.com for that purpose. If you are unfamiliar with our Terms of Service, please read them.
