Researchers come up with hypothesis. Hypothesis is not a conclusion. But it enable us to gather data for analysis.

Once Ying-Yang suggested me to sell my PF and save , and by that time I have done 50% of what he said.

What the caption of this thread may meaningless in a country with savings accounts interest below 1%.

But for us at Sri Lanka  its a worthy study.. Further long bear phases often show the merit of savings..

Madam CBK era was a long 12 odd year plateau for CSE and savings was the panacea...

Are we repeating the same foolish era or are we to see star studded 2017 as Shashimal often say...

My first example is data from a Minor savings account from Peoples Bank, branded as Sisu Udana.

Now I am rejected for the third time as message is too long... so I slice even than usual...

When Yahapalanaya came to power, we should have sold our stocks and converted to US$ or put in a FD. We could have got much more than losing.

So what does above say so far

1. Savings can be done in small amounts as above in just Rs 1,000.00 per month and even there were enough hi-cups in between.

2. When Rs 74,500 is saved you get Rs 16,773.67  as interest...which is 22% unrealized gain in investors language.

If we add already accumulated interest the the total return is 18.38%

3.The more you wait the more gain you get.

Now with effect from April 2016 a WHT of 2.5% is applicable on interest of savings...

This is from a savings account of PLC.N..
So the saver get around 7% compounding interest..

Next I will evaluate NSB minor savings...

so in a  bear market , savers should get more than 7% if they out perform savings account...

I like to see an analysis of Hunter with a list of shares offering higher than 7% dividend yield at current market prices...

Mate, this is not the correct analysis.
For the correct picture, you need to consider the inflation rate; for a safe estimate, consider rate at which motor car prices appreciate.

Let's consider a 10%.

Discount your total by a compounding 10% and see what will happen to the value of your savings.

Ok... good feed back and expected one Ying Yang

I never considered two concepts in my investment life.

1. Opportunity Cost
2. Inflation

Ok
So we talk about the second one...

Inflation is often measured by Consumer Price Indices and so in SL its CCPI (N)...

What is the value of that...So our inflation rate is slightly below 5 hence the discounting factor should be 5% and not 10%

Now if you save to consume sprats, dhal, clothing, etc then discounting is valid.

Ying Yang your consideration of vehicle price is not covered by inflation and if you plan to buy a vehicle out of saving , better move to leasing as its the fastest and saving is out as an alternative.

( I saved and bought a car ) and there are exceptions even for above.

A snowball may also be a large ball of snow formed by rolling a smaller snowball on a snow-covered surface. The smaller snowball grows by picking up additional snow as it rolls. The terms "snowball effect", "snowballing" and "Y Gasseg Eira" are named after this process

You're again correct mates [YK and WB].

Life is like a snowball collecting more snow on the way.

Mind is like a 'koholle' [chewing Gum] ball, sticking onto any surface it touches and collecting lot of dirt on the way.
